ComedySportz’s troupe of all-star laughletes is considered to be not only comedic, but also to have good sportsmanship, since there’s no swearing allowed, the subject matter is suited for all ages, and the show is monitored by a referee who calls offense fouls and hides unfunny heads in a shameful brown bag. Take a friend, relative, significant other, or the relative of a friend’s significant other to see two teams of expert improvisers fight for laughs through an average of 7– 12 scenes, games, and songs based on audience suggestions. At the end, the crowd votes to decide which team wins the honor of dumping life-size cardboard cutouts of the other team into an active volcano.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Led by owner and championship choreographer Chrissy Smith, the on-point pedagogues at Chrissy’s Dance Academy help funnel youngsters' restless energy into grace, confidence, and full-body fitness. The school introduces students to seven dance disciplines in three joyful studios tailored to specific age groups—for example, Studio 1 caters to teeny dancers with whimsical garden décor and a large bathroom in case of emergencies or embarrassing transmutations into rhinoceroses. Teachers prepare pupils for going on tour with pop stars in hip-hop sessions, demonstrate double-time stomps in clogging classes, and explain how to stealthily irritate coworkers in seated toe tapping. Customers can view the schedule for more information. Classes contain just 8–12 students, allowing for laser-like focus on each two-stepper, who will improve rapidly while sashaying away from lasers. Viewing windows enable proud parents to watch as their children leap like professional frogs, and a variety of eateries and a nearby spa prevent wasted time.
