If Jazzercise is a fleeting '80s memory for you, like your Betamax tape of ALF reruns or the "Frankie Say Relax" T-shirt you wear when bleaching the ceiling, today's Groupon gives you a chance to discover how the exercise phenomenon evolved into one of today's best total body workouts. Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Expect to burn up to 500 calories during each round. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though you won't need her moves to get the most out of your class.

International swimming champion and coach Abi Liu leads the staff at Milpitas Star Aquatics. Liu draws on her experiences swimming for the Chinese National Team and as a silver medalist in the 1994 Asia Games as she trains both her instructors and her students.
While their little ones splash away during swimming lessons at Milpitas Star Aquatics and Fitness Center, parents find respite amid the cool blues and whites of Cafe Aqua. Sitting at glossy white tables, they fill their bellies with sandwiches and smoothies or cool off with a fruity-flavored shaved ice. A glass wall stands between the café and the pool, so parents can watch lessons in progress or pretend to judge their kids' cannonball contests.
In 1959, Straw Hat created the very first California pizza crust. Different from any other crust at the time, the layered, flaky bread crunched like a cracker and carried Straw Hat's signature sauce to mouths with ease. More than 50 years later, this recipe for hearty, flavorful pizzas has changed very little. But while Straw Hats' pizza twirlers still cover their crispy dough in a secret sauce, their menu has expanded to included hot wings, hot sandwiches, and a slew of beers. Diners can also pick and choose from the salad bar, which previously existed only in pizza-parlor legend. Straw Hat's locations often boast high-definition TVs, video arcades, and play places for children.
