Combining various fitness disciplines with solid nutritional counseling, Seung-ni Fit Club's trainers send bodies through a muscle-maintenance assembly line that leaves them trim and fit. Sweat sessions can include the fat-blasting Aerobic Kickboxing class, which sets self-defense, dance, and kickboxing techniques bouncing to a choice of upbeat contemporary music or mash-ups of 18th-century Scottish funeral dirges. Plyo Pump's high-intensity jumps and bounds condition bodies to explode with greater speed and power, and lean muscles surface with Body Sculpt's non-impact dumbbell workouts. Zumba sessions fuse energetic Latin dances with resistance training. Motivational instructors provide students with personalized nutrition programs and weight-loss tracking charts for settings goals and marking progress. Flexible schedules at both locations allow all challenge-accepters to get their muscles' worth in eight weeks, much like the two-month mail-order process for purchasing mussels from a shady internet sea captain.

Michigan's Big Country Fest makes ears perk up and boots start tapping to a menu of sweet country sounds. Friday night's festivities kick off to a DJ–supplied soundtrack for a hot-dog-eating contest, line-dancing lessons, a bar-stool race, and a farmer's-tan contest. The night's headline act is Annabelle Road, one of Michigan's premiere young country bands, whose self-titled album fuses rock with classic country.

Saginaw Art Museum gathers both contemporary and classic art in a brick-clad Gregorian Revival mansion that itself is a historical treasure. Originally designed in 1903 by Charles Adams Platt as the Ring family home, the building’s exquisite interior includes dark butternut wood paneling and decorative moldings. Filling the rooms is the museum’s permanent collection of paintings, prints, textiles, and sculptures from American, European, and Asian artists; African artifacts and masks; Native American art; and American and Mexican folk art. A library complements the art collection with more than 1,200 books and periodicals discussing art, as well as Leonardo da Vinci's handmade comic book depicting him as a superhero.

A roster of ever-changing current exhibitions includes showcases of forged metal sculptures, contemporary nature paintings, and the recurring Art in the Heart of the City's ART 4 ALL Exhibitions, which showcase works by local Michigan artists. Visitors peruse temporary exhibits in the exhibition wing gallery, an ultramodern glass-covered hall, or teach flowering plants how to spell “Matisse” in a formal outdoors garden.

To continue arts education outside the gallery, staffers organize themed art history and technique classes for all ages, as well as docent-led tours. They also helm the interactive Visionarea, a gallery space where children delve into art-making, science experiments, and the works of famous artists.

When you step into Mirror Maze Frankenmuth, make sure it's a good-hair day—you're going to be seeing a lot of yourself. Inside, thousands of mirrors line seemingly never-ending hallways, bouncing infinite reflections from one arched passageway to the next. The dizzying path sends families and friends around unseen corners, turns them in circles, and leads them into dead-ends, effectively creating a different experience every time through. Much like a hairstylist who loves pranks, a few of the mirrors also play games with explorers' appearances.

Great Lakes Kiteboarding and its crew of master mariners specialize in converting everyday hydrophobes into Poseidon-punishing aquatic athletes. In a five-hour private lesson, nautical novices can strap a slab of fiberglass to their feet and master wind-riding fundamentals like launching from boat and beach, proper riding form, and self-rescue. Apprentices seeking the deepest secrets of ancient boarders are invited to study at one of Great Lake Kiteboarding’s weekend camps. Starting with ground training to keep too much land from lubbing onto the kites, students will spend a Saturday morning learning about equipment, wind windows, beach etiquette, and safety before hitting the waves to learn basics of riding and landing. After lunch, it’s back out on the water to learn advanced techniques like self-launching, changing direction, and riding the edge, with all of Sunday devoted to honing newfound skills on the water while instructors on WaveRunners play safety shepherd.

For many, maintaining a healthy fitness regimen is an off-putting chore on par with cleaning the garage or assembling that backyard roller coaster for the kids. The folks behind Snap Fitness, which now boasts locations all over the world, are of the opinion that this doesn't have to be the case. They believe 24-hour access to premium cardio and strength-training equipment, innovative easyFIT monitors to track personal progress, and perpetual guidance from certified professionals can help transform physical fitness into an accessible activity that yields measurable and tangible results. In addition to providing online workout rubrics and meal plans, they work to keep sweat glands up and running by offering workout rewards programs, making regular check-in calls, and measuring bodies—sans padded muscle suits—every 30 days.
