With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Getting kids started at a young age builds a strong foundation for the future?whether it's heading to competition or simply learning the value of self-discipline. At Olympic Dreams, students as young as 18 months can enroll in gymnastic classes that work to develop coordination, physical prowess, and how to execute a perfect-10 somersault. In addition to general gymnastics courses for boys and girls, the center also offers more specialized and focused classes, such as tumbling and trampoline.
The experienced instructors at Ruth's Robics and Dance Co. guide groups of fitness-seekers through body-strengthening, Pilates, and step aerobic, and strength-training classes while stressing improved balance and muscle control. Body-strengthening sessions pit complacent fibers against an emotionless trio of weights, resistance bands, and balls, which sculpt toned torsos and prompting shy curves to emerge from epidermal covers. Flat surfaces form the foundation for most buildings and for step aerobics classes, which begin with an upbeat cardio routine before transitioning into floor exercises that target major muscle groups. Link your brain to your body through breathing exercises during Pilates classes, which focus on core conditioning to fortify postures, strengthen abs, and help trainees achieve a leaner, healthier look.
Winners of 16 2010 Youngstown Area Community Theatre Marquee Awards—including best direction and best play—The Victorian Players present plays written in and inspired by the Victorian era. The company is dedicated to presenting family-friendly theater, eschewing stagefare that includes profanity, violence, or graphic onstage depictions of drunken robots. The Madwoman of Chaillot tells the story of the titular character, a quirky aristocrat who gathers an army of café-goers, performers, and fellow madwomen to halt the machinations of an evil coterie of businessmen planning to dig up Paris for its underground stores of oil. Shows take place in a restored 1890s Victorian church, imparting a period-appropriate architectural flavor to the dramatic proceedings.
