Fit From The Ground Up’s stripped-down approach to fitness is best exemplified by its boot-camp classes, which rely on body-weight exercises, sprinting, and basic tools such as pull-up bars, heavy ropes, and oversize tires. The theme carries over to other classes as well, whether muay thai, kickboxing, yoga, or Zumba. To keep things engaging, the staff regularly adds classes based on exercisers’ wants.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

Older students in need of scholastic aid pair up with an Oodles tutor to tackle challenging homework assignments or arts-and-crafts projects. The learning center's curriculum also includes other brain-boosting classes, such as Korean languages, Bollywood dance, SAT study groups, and art-academy sessions. Classes run no longer than 45 minutes, which is long enough to help students grasp the day's lessons without reaching the limit of their attention span or jello-powered battery pack.
