Distinguished by belt levels that range from red to a fifth-degree black belt, instructors at Indiana's Premier Family Center lead students of all ages through karate classes. The classes focus on a balance of common sense, self-defense, and fitness, helping students get into shape while learning basic maneuvers.
Learning martial arts isn't the same as learning to fight. At Bloomington ATA, the hand-picked instructors offer training for students of all fitness levels and ages, building confidence, discipline, and self-control in addition to covering valuable self-defense techniques. The studio's programs include martial arts lessons for adults and children as young as 4, krav maga instruction, and fitness-oriented kickboxing workouts. Regardless of a student's course of study, Bloomington ATA encourages physical and mental growth at a comfortable pace.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.

"Because we are a small gym, we can work with our athletes one-on-one to make sure they come together as a team," explains Janelle Cissell, the business manager at Indy Fusion Cheer & Dance. This approach?one part individual instruction, one part teamwork?is a big reason why so many kids stick around the performance-arts gym for years.
Cissell and head coach Maya Paynee strive to make all of their students feel like part of the family, whether their interests skew toward jazz or hip hop. Regardless of the techniques they're working on, the instructors' primary goal is to encourage and support. They've recently relocated their gym to a new sports complex on the south side of Indianapolis, which features plenty of space to spread out as well as a rumored anti-gravity chamber.
