Instructors help kids of all ages develop their mental and physical skills with progressive gymnastic curricula at Pinnacle Gymnastics. There, vaults, bars, beams, and other equipment await students, along with experienced instructors. Classes, camps, and parties encourage young feet to bound across mats and spring off trampolines at a pair of gym locations. Kids can start taking classes at the age of nine months with parents by their side, and can continue through the program to join competitive teams or portray tumbleweeds in school productions of Oklahoma.

On weekends, F?tbol Club Eatery & Tap opens at 7:30 a.m.?an unusually early time for most restaurants known for a healthy array of beers on tap and a pub-like atmosphere. But their hours reflect the F?tbol Club's primary passion: to champion the game of soccer at all levels. Surrounded by fellow fanatics and a head-spinning array of soccer memorabilia, fans flock to F?tbol Club on Saturday and Sunday mornings to watch English Premier League games live and nosh on breakfast burritos or biscuits. Domestic soccer is also a big hit, as F?tbol Club often fills to standing-room-only during Sporting KC soccer matches.
Not to be left out of the soccer theme, the menu boasts items such as the Beckham Burger and Buckminster's balls?baked dough garnished with garlic butter and parmesan. When not transfixed by the soccer action on the indoor TVs, guests can head outdoors, where a large porch lets guests air their cleats out in the breeze. F?tbol Club donates 1 percent of all proceeds to local youth soccer clubs.
A swarm of sock-footed kids climb up inflatable steps to reach the top of a rainbow-colored slide, sliding down in an orderly fashion before bouncing off and running back for another go. At Jumping Jax, children can safely expend energy with abandon, playing in air-filled structures that cushion them when they fall or work together to stage a production of the Icarus myth. The play arena sports a multitude of attractions including a bounce house with a Twister-board floor and two low-hanging ziplines.
At Title Boxing Club, professional boxers, kickboxers, and mixed martial artists may lead the classes, but their goal is fitness, not fighting. They push patrons to strengthen their bodies from head to toe during one-hour sessions, instructing them to pummel 100-pound bags with jabs, hooks, and roundhouse kicks. They encourage members to hit the bags as hard or soft as they like and to move at their own pace, so the classes accessible to all fitness levels. During one-on-one training sessions, trainers use custom routines of weightlifting, cardio, and sparring to show students how to float like a butterfly and sting like a venomous butterfly. They also develop custom diet plans and exercise routines to help clients meet their fitness goals.
Children naturally believe that life is all about having fun. This requires the instructors at My Gym Children's Fitness Center to perform two seemingly incompatible tasks: helping kids lay a strong physical, emotional, and cognitive foundation and letting them laugh and play to their hearts' content. The staff welcomes the challenge. Grouping kids by age into nearly a dozen different classes, the instructors teach students aged 6 weeks through 13 years the importance and fun of socializing, exercising, and eating broccoli without using their taste buds.
