Founded by sports enthusiast and former adolescent Rick Hart, Jump Start Sports works to enrich pupils' childhoods by developing useful life skills through athletics. Qualified counselors employ their wealth of experience working with children to help campers learn teamwork and fair play as well as the fundamentals of fielding baseballs, scoring soccer goals, or synchronizing pom-pom work. A course structure built around age-appropriate activities, group play, and free electives ensures that students never get bored, and an 8:1 pupil-teacher ratio enables one-on-one assistance to young champions as they practice the graceful art of pitching or the scheming intrigue of free-agent contract negotiation.
Revolt Fitness's circuit training classes build functional strength that helps with practical activities, rather than needlessly bulky muscles. Designed by certified trainer Jefferson Meadors, who has more than a decade of fitness experience, the workouts blend together various styles of training, from strength and cardio work to moves that improve explosiveness.
Welcoming first-time newcomers and experienced veterans to each of its classes, Hot Yoga Twinsburg challenges students to 90-minute Bikram yoga classes that engage the body and mind. Twenty-six postures and two breathing exercises systematically engage muscles throughout the body while shunting freshly oxygenated blood to major organ groups. When coupled with a heated environment, these asanas provide a physical challenge that can build strength, stamina, and flexibility. Additionally, this challenge hones focus and concentration while increasing mind-body awareness. Hot Yoga Twinsburg helps students refresh themselves after class by taking a quick shower in one of the private changing areas or grabbing a cool beverage.
"If you make it, you will taste it" is the motto founders Julie Fabing Burleson and Suzy Vinson Nettles envisioned when they created Young Chefs Academy. In addition to giving youngsters hands-on exposure to culinary techniques, kitchen safety, eating etiquette, and table setting, the academy's philosophy ensures that kids like 10-year-old former veggie-hater Camille gain an appreciation for healthy homemade cuisine. With centers in more than 10 states, Young Chefs Academy enriches growing minds ages 3?18 with engaging cooking classes, camps, and birthday parties that impart valuable life skills, such as self-reliance and how to trick a younger sibling into doing the dishes.
