CrossFit CrossFire readies people to handle any type of physical challenge life may throw at them. Its CrossFit classes rely on varied functional movements—cardio, weightlifting, and gymnastics movements—performed at a high intensity.
Each day, CrossFit participants follow a preset Workout of the Day plan, which may include doing 60 burpee pull-ups or running a mile with a medicine ball in hand. Those who don't wish to do any weightlifting can torch calories and tone up with Unloaded boot-camp sessions.
CrossFit CrossFire offers an onsite kids' area to entertain children while parents work out.
Over the last 36 years, Auto Painting USA has earned its stripes by slapping new coats of paint on vehicles of all kinds, working with everyday drivers and big-name clients such as 20th Century Fox and the University of Florida. The shop's technicians carefully apply DuPont paints to auto bodies, backing their work with a three-year, five-year, or lifetime guarantee. They also perform collision-repair jobs that help correct damage incurred from bumps, scratches, and noogies from bullying semis.
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.

To help people of all fitness levels get in the game, members can train at their own pace amid the relaxed, team-centric environment.
The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
