Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor Marcio Laselva has a wealth of championships and nine years of teaching experience under his second-degree black belt. He helps his students hone their bodies and minds into sleek, sinewy machines with the help of a qualified and experienced team of instructors, which includes ISKA World Champion kickboxer Marcio Navarro. Far from being just a dojo for training hard-hitting fighters, the 20,000-square-foot, family-friendly gym helps athletes achieve all sorts of objectives, whether decreasing stress levels with calming yoga classes or learning to beat up the ocean with karate courses. An intense yet addictive fighter fitness regimen lets laymen and women tone and build their bodies like MMA warriors, while capoeira classes seamlessly combine music, dance, and martial arts. Students learn a wide range of disciplines within the gym's welcoming walls, including the art of the fist and foot in tae kwon do lessons and master’s degrees in the sweet science with classes from 47-year boxing vet Johnny "Coach" Papin.

In addition to classes, staffers further assist members with personal-training sessions and nutrition coaching, which is calibrated to help them meet their individual goals. In addition to barring live performances of the 1812 Overture in the facility, the owners strive to ensure maximum comfort by offering guests access to a massage room and an infrared sauna designed to soothe aching bodies and evict toxins.

At any of the 15 Great Life Golf and Fitness locations, guests are encouraged to invent their own triathlon of gusto, switching from swimming in the pool to getting a total body workout to playing a round of golf. Great Life has facilities scattered throughout Kansas and Missouri, including golf courses such as the National Audubon Society–certified River Oaks and the links at The Oaks, which were designed by Tom Bendelow and opened in the 1920s. Golfers looking for quick rounds can drop by the nine-hole courses at Maple Creek, Abilene, and CedarBrook. Gyms such as the 14,000-square-foot fitness center at Berkshire allow members or guests to pump iron or run on treadmills when they aren’t helping their golf balls safely reach the greens by paying golf carts to drink all of the water hazards dry. Although amenities vary at each club, all of Great Life Golf and Fitness’s venues boast a pro shop, and the courses at Berkshire and Prairie View maintain driving ranges where golfers can make golf balls practice flying without their parachutes.

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 500 calories with each go-round.

While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise. Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren't needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.
