  • Fullbody Fitness Club
    Though she's been expanding viewers' knowledge and awareness as a news anchor for WPXI Channel 11 for close to 20 years, Darieth Chisolm works to enlighten members of her community in a different way off-camera. Chisolm is an avid runner, a certified group fitness instructor, and the owner of Fullbody Fitness Club, where she encourages exercisers to think outside the plyometric box. Her classes and equipment are anything but conventional—guests experience the sensation of being airborne during Jukari Fit to Fly aerial acrobatics classes—the creation of Reebok and the Cirque du Soleil entertainment group. Patrons hang upside down in fabric hammocks during aerial yoga and whirl around 45mm poles during pole-dance fitness sessions. The rooms are outfitted with thick, padded flooring to protect joints and acoustically muffle the squeals of unbridled, endorphin-driven glee. To lead students safely through her fitness wonderland, Chisolm has gathered a team of certified instructors to teach proper technique and guide people toward their goals. Her studio has been featured in numerous media, including a 2011 story on her own WPXI and the designation of Best Place to Soar to New Heights from Pittsburgh Magazine in 2012. Chisolm also offers patrons several ways to give back to their favorite nonprofit organizations.

  • Fonzi's Synergy Fitness West Mifflin
    Despite its name, Fonzi’s Synergy Fitness isn’t a place where members learn to ride motorcycles while keeping their slicked-back coiffures in place. It’s a locally owned gym helmed by Jim Fonzi and Denice Normandy-Fonzi, who cultivate a welcoming feel inside the fitness haven. High-quality workout equipment, such as the BodyMasters System—a 30-minute circuit workout similar to Curves, as well as free weights fill the space, and a fitness room hosts an array of heart-pumping, calorie-burning classes.

  • Pittsburgh Dance Center
    Leading and Following: Staying in Tune with Your Partner Before you and a partner hit the floor, you'll need to decide who will lead. Learn why dancing is more than a game of "Follow the Leader" in Groupon's study of the concept. A truly great dancer can lead a partner through a waltz on a crowded floor without smashing any toes or shattering any monocles?even if that partner has never waltzed before. The lead dancer (traditionally, but not always, the male of a male-female partnership) is charged with sending nonverbal cues to his partner through subtle movements of his hands and arms. This task can be incredibly nuanced, as the lead dancer must simultaneously keep time with the music, plan out his next steps, and navigate around other dancers. This is not to say that the other partner is entirely passive. Richard Powers, a dance instructor at Stanford University, asserts in his Thoughts on Dance that "the follow role is mentally and physically active," just as aware of her surroundings and her partner's movements as the lead. Each partner must constantly adjust their movements to match the other's, and a good lead will never exert too much force if his partner does not catch his cues or know how to read his semaphore flags. "Clear leading is the physical equivalent of quiet, perfect diction, not shouting," writes Powers. This equality-minded philosophy of social dance gained widespread acceptance after the gender-role upheavals of the 20th century, but it isn?t a new phenomenon. Many 19th century men were emphatic about respecting the autonomy of their dance partners, with famed dancer Charles Durang noting in 1847 that "Gentlemen ought always to be attentive to their partners, and they should move in unison with their every step and attitude." That sentiment makes a striking contrast with that of a 1930 writer who argued that "No matter what her views on suffrage and feminism may be, it is a woman's duty to let the man lead on the ballroom floor. [?] He is the pace-maker; she is his shadow." These attitudes about female submission on the dance floor persisted well through the 1950s, when the rise of the feminist movement began to reshape attitudes throughout society. Today, many dancers of any gender feel it's important to learn to lead and to follow in order to become a well-rounded, attentive partner.

  • Pittsburgh Dance Center
    When discussing her approach to dance instruction with reporters from Bloomfield Now, Pittsburgh Dance Center founder Holly Dayton-Kirby quipped, "If you can dream, you can dance." It was only through tireless practice and dedication that Holly was able to win scholarships to dance academies before eventually earning herself a place in prestigious companies such as Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, Dance Alloy, and Riverdance. Holly founded Pittsburgh Dance Center in order to offer dance instruction for aspiring students of all backgrounds, regardless of previous experience, age, or ability to pay. Within the newly renovated historical Plaza Theater, Holly and her staff of instructors conduct classes in a wide variety of dance styles that range from ballet to hip-hop to Argentine tango, as well as dance-infused fitness sessions. The historical 5,000-square-foot facility boasts ornamental ceilings with brass trappings, making it an acoustically ideal venue for instructors to blare vibrant dance music or hire monks to sing Liberace in case the sound system goes down.
