At CrossFit Centereach, members won't spend countless hours on a treadmill parked in front of flat screens. Instead, they will challenge their minds and bodies with high-intensity exercises built around gymnastics and strength conditioning. As participants build powerful muscles and burn fat through running, jumping, and weightlifting, they forge a solid bond and community with their fellow gym mates.
World Gym maintains its 35-year legacy of body-sculpting know-how at its various globe-spanning locations, jump-starting workout routines with cardio equipment, free weights, and more than 50 weekly exercise classes. Taught by certified trainers, typical classes range from yoga to spin to calorie-torching Zumba dance parties.

Islip CrossFit reveals CrossFit's intense workout of the day seven days a week. Each workout more or less consists of functional movements, such as pulling and pushing, which we all do after we drive a car into a pond.

JCC stands for Jewish Community Center, but religion isn't the sole focus at the JCC of Greater New Haven. The center also aims to facilitate fun, whether through summer camps for kids or Zumba classes for adults. Below are four highlights of the center's extensive programming:
The summer camps. While school is out, kids hike miles of trails, create quirky crafts, and learn to swim.
The group exercise classes. These range from core-strengthening Pilates to dance-inspired Zumba classes.
The PJ Libray program. Open to kids ages six months to eight years, this program mails youngsters and their parents a monthly array of age-appropriate Jewish literature and music.
The Arts and Culture festival. This annual celebration highlights Yiddish and Israeli work in fields ranging from literature to classical music.
