While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise.

Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren't needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.

Although martial arts help students master invaluable self-defense techniques that come in handy in extreme situations, continued practice helps them develop the confidence and self-control to get a handle on everyday life. Kyoshi Jamie Palmer?a sixth-degree black belt?and Sensei Ashleigh Palmer emphasize both of these aspects as they teach Okinawan-style martial arts at Olathe Karate Academy. The husband-wife team caters to the needs of students of all ages, showing children and adults how to perform the forearm strikes and forceful kicks of kenpo as well as the throws and grappling techniques of jiu jitsu.

As dedicated attendees continue to develop their skills, they can deepen their practice by studying how to spar or safely use traditional weapons, such as staffs, sais, and sarcastic one-liners. The Palmers even use traditional self-defense techniques to create metabolism-boosting workout regimens by leading kickboxing sessions.

All of these classes take place within Olathe Karate Academy's fully equipped practice studio, which sprawls across nearly 4,500 square feet of space. The gray, padded floors provides a welcome bit of cushion and support during class. Opposite the main room's wall of mirrors, a line of crimson heavy bags hang from the ceiling, allowing students to practice their strikes against a sturdy target.
