Unified by the theme of fire trucks and fairy tales, Panorama's curriculum draws on multiple cultures and disciplines to nurture the natural, borderless curiosity of children ages 5–12. Throughout a four-hour session, experienced multitongued instructors speak in French, Spanish, and English, exposing children to basic greetings and traditional songs, from "bonjour" and "buenos dias" to "hey, I'm walkin' here!" After an exploration of international art, kids draw from a variety of media to create their own piece to take home, along with a photo album culled from lessons in digital photography and HD video. A cooking seminar teaches kids about cuisine and culinary traditions from beyond their borders, bequeathing Panorama aprons, shirts, or Food Network contracts to the young chefs as they whip up firehouse sandwiches and butterfly-apple salad. As each session is limited to a small number of participants, children receive individual instruction within a collaborative atmosphere.

After spending years immersed in the fitness and athletic industries, Ernesto McLaurin and Kim Brutzman had grown weary of the monotonous exercise equipment found in large corporate gyms. On their search for a more substantial form of fitness free from bulky machines, the two trainers fell in love with the CrossFit program’s high-energy, functional-movement-based workout routines, eventually joining forces to form CrossFit El Paso in 2006. They stuff their Eastside and Westside locations with simple resistance-training equipment, free weights, and kettlebells, conducting CrossFit classes throughout the week with the help of certified instructors. In addition to leading rigorous CrossFit workouts, they provide students with nutritional guidance and host regular health seminars. They also offer a FemmeFit class, where women and male comedians in convincing makeup can practice CrossFit workouts specifically designed for the female body.
