BounceU transports kids to an inflatable, climate-controlled playground, where they can bounce from side to side in a safe, secure environment. Your two passes are valid toward any combination of open bounce sessions scheduled at various times throughout the week (a $7 value per child) and family bounce night every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (an $8 value for the first child, $7 for each additional sibling). Kids can imagine they're synchronized leapers in Michael Flatley's Riverbounce as they carom around the inflatable stadium, expending energy with every leap. Adults are welcome to act like eight-year-olds and join the vivacious youngsters in the playground, where they can duel with the foam-shooting equipment or mount the climbing structures.

Central Valley Stars Dance Studio, like all STARS 21 studios, first sprang from the aspirations of a national dance group from Layton, Utah in 1970. Fueled by a drive to share their passion for dance with aspiring youngsters, they started STARS so they could shape the talents of kids, adolescents, and teens at an early age. It proved so successful that they were eventually able to transform it into the multistate dance program it is today.

Now, the time-tested curriculum introduces students ? whether in preschool or high school ? to myriad forms of dance. Kids master the graceful movements of classical ballet or acquaint themselves with the rhythmic motions and sweltering full-body bunny suits of hip-hop. Longtime students advance to one of the studio's many performing teams, lighting up professional sports stadiums during half-time shows.

He accomplishes this by leading group workouts as well as personal-training sessions for clients of virtually any fitness level. These individualized workouts may incorporate anything from treadmills to medicine-ball exercises, and focus on helping visitors work toward their particular health goals.

"We ain?t no little gym," says Gymnastics Beat's website, and it's telling the truth. The facility spans 12,000 square feet, and has two spring floors, two trampolines, and a 60-foot long tumble track?plus an impressive collection of gymnastics equipment. It's the perfect environment for the gym's team of experienced coaches that includes a champion cheerleader.

These coaches, all certified through USA Gymnastics, background-checked, and certified in First-Aid and CPR, use the ample space to teach gymnastics, power tumbling, cheer, and acrobatics. Perhaps the most unique offering on their schedule, though, is urban gymnastics. During this class, students learn nimble ways to navigate urban surroundings, such as vaulting over railings or running across the shoulders of everyone in front of you at the coffee shop.
