Based on the retention theory of the "Song That Never Ends," monthly themes are incorporated into every section of the curriculum. Each classroom also contains interest centers geared toward literacy, science, music, and how to properly eat an overstuffed burrito.

A 30-day all-access membership (a $69 value) gives bodies access to enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them capable of running a marathon inside a swimming pool filled with mud.
