Young Brothers Tae Kwon-Do was founded in 1968 and has a deeply rooted history in the art of Tae Kwon-Do. The two brothers who opened the training facility are both ninth-degree black belts who studied in Korea and have been practicing Tae Kwon-Do for more than 50 years.

Jazzercise, a funk-fueled, head-to-toe regimen, sculpts muscles, boosts energy, and sheds pounds during 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching. It incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Class formats vary too, including special Jazzercises geared to sculpt your bod or literally make you slightly better at saxophone playing. As for the ittie-ditties, childcare is available during select times at many locations.
Fueled by the belief that the more fun an exercise regimen is, the more likely people will stick with it, instructors at Fitness With A Twist take an unorthodox route to fitness. Instead of stocking the brick-lined studio with cardio gear and free weights, they filled the mirrored space with floor-to-ceiling chrome poles, upon which they demonstrate how to perform gravity defying lifts, spins, and inversions. High heels click against the polished hardwood floors as they teach women the basics of pole dancing during drop-in classes, new uses for familiar seats in chair-dancing sessions, or ways to tone their upper bodies in ab-centric courses or the occasional belly-dancing class. To cater to bridal parties, work friends, or bridge clubs looking for an exciting alternative to conventional gatherings, the staffers also host pole-dancing parties.
JG Yoga and Wellness owner Jennifer Goebel has been a fitness and wellness enthusiast for just under two decades. But in that stretch, she's packed her mind with a lifetime's worth of education. Jennifer holds certifications in yoga, Pilates, tai chi, aerobics, and spinning. She also has a master's degree in holistic health studies. All of Jennifer's hard work comes to fruition at her studio in Latrobe, where she leads several different types of classes, highlighted by beginner and all-level sessions of yoga. She also offers massage, reiki, and reflexology services by appointment, and yoga-instructor training which implements methods far more effective than having her students write "I will be stretchy" a thousand times on a blackboard.
Doug Crytzer holds the rare distinction of being a professional racer. When a local boy scout troop hired him to organize an adventure race for them, he discovered he loved producing races even more than running them. He founded American Adventure Sports in 1997 to indulge his new passion, while raising awareness of nature's beauty and efforts to preserve it.
Today, AAS, as Doug dubs it, organizes adventure races, triathlons, mountain bike races, and camping trips into American wildernesses across the country. The organization also has a brick and mortar store located in Pennsylvania, where staffers provide athletes with all the gear they need to compete in any of the events or go on an adventure of their own making.
