Run by a family of fitness gurus, Spa Fit makes charismatic fitness coaching during group exercise classes one of its highest priorities, second only to making sure gym-goers properly match sweatbands to leotards. Improve posture and reduce muscle tension with a series of floor and standing poses during yoga classes, or send puny core muscles through a brawn-building assembly line during Pilates sessions. With the 60-minute Cycle-Lates classes, students spend half the time burning calories on a cardio bike and the other half building lean, toned muscles doing mat Pilates exercises. Meanwhile, Zumba classes provide high-energy sweat sessions, during which fitnessmongers of all ages and experience levels tone their bodies by performing kinetic Latin-dance-inspired moves to the rhythms of motivating music or the tense sounds of a Stephen King audio book.

Perched on hilltops that overlook the scenic Roanoke Valley, Hanging Rock Golf Club's 18-hole course surfs the mountainside for 6,602 yards of challenging course conditions.

When discussing pole dancing with reporters from WDBJ7, Jenni Waters explained, "It's strength, agility, you need to be graceful, and it takes a lot of technique to really master the pole dance art." During Jenni's own quest to conquer the dance's challenging poses and physically demanding combinations, she shed 40 pounds of unwanted baby weight. Delighted by the results, Jenni decided to open her own pole-dance studio, where she leads students toward slimmer and stronger selves through a variety of instructional and fitness-focused classes.

Towering chrome poles sprout up from the studio's floor, where dancers practice sultry swings and core-strengthening spins. Jenni opens her classes to students of all sizes, genders, and experience levels, welcoming students to wear whatever they most feel comfortable in?from erotic 6-inch heels to more conservative Vote for Benjamin Harrison T-shirts.

Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, but the Wedding & Wine Festival hopes to take the edge off by pairing the planning process with wine tastings from local wineries. After decorating their tasting glasses with special markers and then filling them up, brides and grooms can stroll the Green Hill House. Here, a variety of wedding vendors?including caterers, lighting companies, and entertainers?chat with couples while other wedding specialists show them how to execute Pinterest projects and offer general wedding ideas.

But perhaps the biggest draw of the day is the Bridal Bazaar, a bridal flea market that supplies brides and grooms with a variety of items they can use for their ceremony, reception, and post-wedding puppet reenactment.
