Kicking. Punching. Developing valuable social skills. One of these may seem out of place, but rest assured that it's not. At least it's not at Brown's Tae Kwon Do, where students learn how to defend themselves even as they build self-confidence and make new friends. Students of all ages and skill levels participate in indoor and outdoor classes every day, learning new techniques as they advance through the rainbow of belt levels. Of course, fitness-minded students can always throw up their dukes in cardio kickboxing or fitness boxing classes that build strength and endurance.

For more than 125 years, YMCA of Topeka has been helping people bolster their muscles, and today invites people to tone up in three full-service facilities and the 175-acre outdoor fitness retreat, Camp Hammond. Members enjoy a slew of body-boosting benefits, swimming laps in three indoor swimming pools, walloping orbs on nine racquetball courts, and flexing their muscles in six gymnasiums. Hone your physique in any of the more than 120 fitness classes (certain classes require additional fees), including aquatic fitness classes that proffer workouts that are as comforting to joints as an obstacle course made of marshmallows. Outdoors enthusiasts can also explore Camp Hammond's 15-acre lake, swimming dock, canoes, and nature trails. Included in today's deal is a coaching session with a trained wellness coach to discuss goals and receive an introduction to the fitness equipment.

Personal trainer Jamie Neal didn't like the stuffy, crowded atmosphere of larger gyms. So she began seeing her clients in their homes or at the community center, allowing them to bring their own motivational music and avoid mobbed treadmills. She hosts one-on-one and group workouts as well as boot-camp programs, some of which include nutrition plans, shopping lists, and regular evaluations of each student's progress.
