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.

If Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan J. Meylor ever needed chiropractic advice, he wouldn’t have to look any further than his own family tree. Dr. Meylor, a third-generation chiropractor with more than 30 fellow chiropractors in his clan, earned his degree at the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he learned an array of techniques including the Gonstead, Thompson Drop, and Prone Specific. With his diverse skillset, Dr. Meylor seeks out the sources of his clients’ discomfort and customizes treatments to target their specific ailments, which can include back pain, allergies, headaches, and whiplash. As a certified acupuncturist, he also alleviates pain and treats conditions such as high blood pressure and dizziness with advanced acupuncture tools rather than needles.
The doglegs and putting greens of Milt’s Golf Center's nine-hole executive course have been challenging Omaha golfers for more than 30 years. The family-owned business is run today by golf pro Mark Ordway, whose brother Mike designed the course and made the wise decision to not include lava pits. Instead, the fairways snake around a ball-snatching lake, as bunkers stand at the ready to tack extra strokes onto players’ scorecards. Before hitting the links, golfers can warm up their woods and irons at the driving range, and those interested in professional guidance can schedule lessons.
