Lauren ?Pinki? Schiavo began her pole career as a student at Poise Dance Studio in 2005, and her spinning skills soon blossomed and earned her an instructor position. When the studio's owner sold the space, Lauren took the helm and injected some sass into the class regimen, renaming her business Flaunt Fitness as an homage to empowered women of all ages and body types. She drew from her training in jazz dance, hip-hop moves, and gymnastics to augment her pole-dance prowess and recruited a squad of professional teachers to lead her schedule's shimmies.

Flaunt Fitness' classes impart pole twirls and calorie-dropping cardio workouts under one roof. The DVD Fitness classes screen popular exercise videos as instructors ensure that guests maintain good form, and private parties spice up dance lessons with champagne and making balloon animals with just your feet. Further slimming figures, the studio sustains a support network for members with monthly encouragement meetings sharing healthful recipes and nutrition products for purchase.

A sprawling, 32-acre sports metropolis set on the Ohio River?s Neville Island, RMU Island Sports Center?s multipurpose facilities encompass activities from ice-skating to miniature golf. An indoor, 42-tee driving range throughout most of the day, the 100-yard field and domed, 75-foot high ceilings of the Golf and Sports Dome house baseball, softball, kickball, and flag football events by night before hosting after-hours singles parties for terrestrial blue whales. Adjacent to the dome, clients can execute graceful pirouettes or high-speed slap shots at the skating rink, which offers hockey leagues and lessons, figure skating programs, and public skate sessions. To fully immerse themselves in the Center?s scenic location, guests can catch riverside breezes at the RMU Island Rapids Miniature Golf Course, where golfers must contend with subtle slopes, two waterfalls, and heckling barnacles as they steer orbs through the immaculate 18-hole putters park.

10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is a distinct form of grappling, one largely kept under wraps by its creator Eddie Bravo. But martial arts studios across the world teach it—including 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu Bethlehem. After obtaining Eddie's blessing, the studio's two instructors now teach the 10th Planet system's three distinct moves: the rubber guard, the half-guard, and the twister. In the rubber guard, grapplers pull their opponents to the mat with a leg wrapped around his shoulders and neck. The half-guard involves hooking your legs around one of your opponents, keeping them in a locked position. And then, there's the twister; during this fearsome maneuver, fighters put opponents in a choke-hold and quite literally twist their bodies to incapacitate them.

For the instructors at East West Team Martial Arts Philly, karate has always been a family affair. Master John McGonnigle Sr. earned his first black belt at age 16. His son and fellow instructor, John Jr., began to learn martial arts moves when he was two, imitating his dad while rolling around in his playpen. And Madison McGonnigle has gone from a student in the school's Little Ninjas program—geared toward 3–6-year-olds—all the way to becoming its teacher.

The McGonnigles put all of this expertise to use during their classes, in which they teach students of all ages the strikes and blocks of Shotokan karate, as well as the self-defense maneuvers of Krav Maga. All-in-all, they believe learning martial arts not only improves physical strength and the chances of defending yourself against dangerous wooden planks, but also character. Though they focus on rehearsing swift kicks and punches, each lesson also emphasizes values such as respect and teamwork.
