Rather than focus on creating competition, the instructors at Iannuzzo's Karate & Kickboxing’s 8,000-square-foot facility take a more family-friendly route, eschewing enmity and keeping a positive frame of mind. This approach helps them train students as young as 4 years old in the art of karate. These all-ages classes focus on flexibility, coordination, and basic self-defense skills. Instructors also help adults obliterate calories and take out aggression against the punching bag that once spurned them in kickboxing classes set to up-tempo music. Instead of sparring, individuals undergo an ever-changing series of workouts with heavy bags, medicine balls, weights, and plyometrics. And the staff shows its theatrical side during children's birthday parties—giving martial-arts demonstrations, leading games, and slicing cakes using an authentic samurai sword.
The Wall's bouldering-only climbing facility beckons visitors to scale simulated peaks with angles of up to 90 degrees. Technicolor foot- and handholds pepper the walls, creating 62 different routes that challenge everyone from beginners to Harvard-educated mountain goats. To help to scale these manmade peaks, staff leads both introductory and intermediate bouldering classes. Additionally, the staff frequently changes routes to keep each climb fresh.

In the cardio-salsa and Latin movement group classes, students internalize Latin rhythm as they learn salsa steps and syncopations from instructor Roberto Perez. Would-be salsa shakers can attend either the Monday or Tuesday classes, held at Center Group Fitness Studio in Fayetteville at 6:30 p.m., or the Wednesday class, held at Pine Grove Country Club in Camillus at 7:45 p.m. Partners are rotated throughout each class, so show up solo and captivate a succession of would-be paramours.
