Instructors at Frank Corbo’s aren't satisfied with simply imparting martial-arts techniques to the kids, teens, and adults they take under their professionally trained wings. In addition to teaching proper form, instructors aim to instill students with confidence, self-discipline, and tenacity that pupils can take with them when they leave the mirrored facility's blue mat. The studio belongs to Black Belt Schools International, which helps the staff stay updated on new techniques, teaching methods, nutritional science, and laundering techniques to ensure belt colors never fade. In addition to karate, the schedule includes classes on self-defense for adults and kids, fitness kickboxing, and mixed martial arts.

At The Scuba Shack, the staff’s family-oriented lessons encourage divers to take social rather than solo ventures into the blue beyond. Each instructor carries an impressive résumé of underwater travels—the head trainer has been diving for more than 20 years and others have logged more than 1,000 dives. Captaining PADI-certification courses and specialty seminars—which cover topics such as night diving, photography, and fish identification—they take groups on open-water excursions to area lakes and Clear Spring Scuba Park. They prioritize educating their charges with safe and enjoyable teachings, rather than monotonous quizzes on whether the bends is a serious health issue or a 1980s punk band. With trips to dive sites in Fiji and Mexico, they introduce divers to the visual wonder of reefs and aquatic wildlife throughout the world.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.

Nelson Molina had just graduated from medical school when a chance encounter changed his life's path. Every day, he'd stop by a local cafe for lunch, and every day, he'd run into a crowd of fellow customers who seemed astonishingly relaxed and happy. Convinced by their laid-back demeanor that they must be fishermen by trade, he asked?and discovered that they spent their mornings working the stock market, and had the freedom to spend their afternoons hanging out with their families or watching cat videos. He decided then and there to change careers.

He started trading penny stocks, bond futures, equities, and options, and he's been an independent trader since 2010. Wanting to share his success with others, he started McBillion.com, which trains students to read the market's crucial indicators to find their own success.
