Experienced Zumba instructor Amy Quinonez leads participants through fat burning, dance-fueled fitness classes five days a week. Created by choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez, Zumba decimates calories and burns fat with easy-to-follow dance moves set to cardio-boosting, Latin-inspired rhythms. During the last 20 minutes of each one-hour session, Amy leads students through a Zumba abs routine, crunching cores with aerobic regimens and interpretive reenactments of Paul Revere’s Ride. Most classes consist of about 20 students, and Amy frequently updates the music and choreography to keep class as fresh as the air wafting from a laundromat in an orange grove.
With high-energy moves and a vivacious soundtrack, Zumba classes taught by Amity Humphries infuse dancing feet with latin rhythms while burning excess calories.

With drop-in casualness and a playful intensity, Zumba classes eradicate gym doldrums and obligatory small talk with weight machines, allowing torso twisters to party their way to sleek physiques.

Abilene Dental has been straightening errant incisors under the expert guidance of Dr. Christie M. Leedy for many moons. The dentistry features orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unpatched eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain ($325 value), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer; this Groupon gets clients $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
Diamondback Golf Club's 12-acre practice facility packs a wallop of club-based fun, including a full driving range, sizable putting green, and sand-flanked pitching area. Two brimming pails of dimpled orbs savor escapes from mini golf's frightening clowns as guests launch their contents across 75,000 square feet of teeing area. After fine-tuning their long game, golfers can feel free to tap around a 10,000-square-foot putting green to hone precision cup-seeking skills. To cap off a day of boosting golf bona fides or to presage a marvelous on-course performance, visiting club wielders can knock balls over groomed sand traps and onto a chipping green to prevent confused sea turtles from sneaking up and burying unhatched golf balls.
The Abilene Ruff Riders sate adrenaline-craving eyes with an action-packed arsenal of tackles and high-flying passes, while trampling their competition. Strap in for the inaugural home game against the Corpus Christi Hammerheads, which pits buck against bite in a pigskin brawl, and marks the Ruff Riders' first challenge since joining the Southern Indoor Football League in 2010. Ruff Riders' mascot Rowdy the cowboy joins forces with a squad of dancing temptresses to incite fanfare and woo the visiting team into confused complacency. Fans can color coordinate with red-section seats while imitating the players' red and black insignia, eliminating the need to display support by inflating hands with bicycle pumps. Doors open at 6 p.m.
