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.

The Strawberry Roth IRA and the Chocolate Tax Break are just two of the cocktails served at Finances Demystified happy hours, hosted by personal finance coach Dominique Broadway. During the events, also called "money parties," participants sip drinks and mingle, all while discussing personal finance issues and getting answers from experts that include realtors and entrepreneurs.

Dominique spent years at brokerage and personal finance firms, and her experience in money management goes back—way back. Even as a kid, she sold handmade bracelets to her friends and family, rather than just trading them for trendy pet rocks. Currently, Dominique strives to demystify the world of personal finance for the everyday person through her social finance events, which aim to break taboos around discussing money.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
