In 1969, Judi Sheppard Missett combined her passion for jazz with an eye for cardio exercise to create an entertaining, easy-to-follow dance fitness routine—Jazzercise—to help patrons of all ages and abilities to get in shape while having fun. Four decades and more than 7,800 instructors later, the muscle-toning, heart-thumping classes have helped students to shape up all throughout the world, with 32 countries offering a total of more than 32,000 classes per week. To accommodate wee ones, some locations feature a childcare facility where youngsters keep busy as their caretakers learn to mimic Bob Fosse–inspired slinking, raking, and craning.
At Body Beautiful Laser Medi Spa, Dr. John A. Martini revamps appearances with noninvasive medical treatments that combat unwanted hair, wrinkles, and cellulite. Nonsurgical face-lifts, laser skin resurfacing, and microdermabrasion mitigate blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation, renewing dermises and imbuing faces with the youthful glow of a newborn flashlight. Accent XL body contouring gives a noninvasive alternative to tummy tucks and liposuction by kneading bodies with a handheld module that wages war on dimpling. The spa can also conjure hair with restoration procedures, or employ laser hair-removal treatments to remove mustaches so they can be donated to witness-protection programs.

Certified Zumba instructors and reiki masters complement yoga with dynamic cardio work and relaxing spiritual balancing sessions.
Mindful Yoga’s trio of passionate yoga instructors guides students toward mind and body wellness during informative workshops and classes available all week. The studio’s class schedule boasts classes for all skill levels, including a fundamentals class, where inexperienced yogis ease into basic postures and breathing techniques as patient teachers help students reach each pose with proper alignment, body awareness, and perfect mantra-humming pitch. Body benders who have gone steady with their sticky mat for at least six months happily join the more challenging Yoga 2 class featuring aerobic Vinyasa flows that link physical postures together with mindful breathing exercises, and longer-held poses that provide muscles with deep, healing stretches. Mindful Yoga's workshops help yogis address specific ailments or interests, such as the Yoga for Fibromyalgia course designed to relieve sufferers’ symptoms with low-impact exercises and gentle stretches, or mind-melting meditation sessions that can relieve stress and soothe fussy spirit bears.
