Getting in shape after giving birth can be difficult; taking care of the baby takes a lot of time and leaves bodies weary and sapped of energy. Stroller Strides understands these common struggles and has designed exercise regimens with new mothers in mind. All you need to get started is you, your baby or someone else's baby, and a stroller. Classes, which are taught by specially trained instructors, take place outdoors most of the year and consist of a warm-up, a buggy-bandying power walk, and interval stations where participants do a variety of body-toning exercises. Musically enhanced indoor classes are also available if you'd rather spare your body and baby from winter's clammy clutches. Instructors provide everyone with any additional equipment and, in the event of a fussy-baby episode, will show you exercises you can do with your baby.

Since 1978, Brett Aviation's FAA-certified flight instructors have imparted wisdom to fledgling aviators through programs ranging from discovery flights to full pilot certifications. Their trusty aircraft run skyward laps from its nest at Martin State Airport, allowing students to get a feel for flight controls and build the confidence that comes from hours spent aloft. Planes also take off on sightseeing flights, giving passengers aerial glimpses of such destinations as downtown Baltimore, Annapolis, and Ocean City at 120 miles per hour, just fast enough to outrun the tall ships that frequently drag-race down Chesapeake Bay.

That feeling of lifting off?right when the wheels leave the ground and the weightlessness of flight takes hold?is an unmatched one. That thrill is something most people only experience in the back of a commercial airliner, but the folks at DC Flying Lessons are out to change that. Under the tutelage of FAA-certified instructors, even the most inexperienced students can experience the thrill of flying a small plane?or even a helicopter. From start to finish, instructors provide helpful tips and knowledge, teaching students how to prepare for flight, pilot the plane in the air, and, when their mothers call them in for dinner, land.

SIGNING Basics' instructors help their students learn to speak without uttering a word. Through private lessons and group classes, they teach American Sign Language to students of all ages and backgrounds. Introductory lessons lead students through the basics of the sign-language alphabet and movements. Advanced classes show students how to carry conversations, enabling them to communicate effectively or correct baseball coaches' faulty ?charge the mound? gestures. Instructors also offer workshops that impart basic techniques for businesses and groups.

The nine licensed and passionate flight instructors at Middle River Aviation steer aspiring pilots through both a grounded aviation lesson and a midair experience in the blue yonder. Pupils remain bound to the ground for a half-hour session on flying fundamentals, including aircraft anatomy, safety protocols, and how to treat a bite from a cloud. Mentors then lead students to Middle River's fleet of Cessnas and other planes, which comprises one of the largest menageries of training aircrafts in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. For an additional 30 minutes, students hone their aerial navigation skills from the cockpit as they fly above Martin State Airport. The airport's functional control tower introduce students to flying into or out of any airport based on their brands of etiquette, ranging from takeoff and landing procedures to the regional guidelines for drag-racing against hawks.
