Jill Dailey McIntosh has always been intrigued by the human body and how it moves?so much so that she graduated in 1991 with a kinesiology degree and soon thereafter decided to open her own Pilates teaching studio. But it wasn't until years later that this curiosity would manifest itself in a single question: "How can one aggressively transform the shape of their body while still maintaining proper alignment of the spine?" Eventually Jill began to examine her diverse fitness background, pulling low-impact movements from ballet, Pilates, and even orthopedic-exercise routines to create the basis for her fitness style, The Dailey Method.
Now, more than a decade later, Dailey's fitness routine has ballooned into studios sprawled across more than 10 states and gained praise from Self, Allure, FitPregnancy, and InStyle magazines. Regardless of the location, instructors remain true to Jill's mission of offering a diverse series of exercises that focus on toning and strengthening the body while lengthening the spine and building strong core muscles.

Brett Rosen, the coach behind Integrated Sports Performance, sees an athlete in everyone. Each day, he works with students ages 8 and older on improving their athletic performance while reducing their risk of injury. To accomplish all that, he draws on knowledge acquired while earning his degrees in exercise science, nutrition and exercise, and psychology. He shares his helpful insights with a variety of students, which might be individuals, small groups, or sports teams. To make sure his students get the most out of his advice, he trains them in the group size that best fits their activity, allowing players to build camaraderie with their team or spend an intense, solo hour of exercise wishing they'd picked a team sport to play.
At each of Fat Cats' five locations, strikes and spares light up the screens of automatic scoring systems. Bowling balls roll and skip down lanes in normal conditions, against retractable bumpers, or under the fluorescent glow of Thunder Alley, when the facility transforms into a music-filled fusion of a bowling alley and dance club. Each lane's crashing pins echo the softer clacking of putters at the glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course and the ringing lightshow of the arcade. Elsewhere, the scents of pizza and deep-fried bowling balls waft through the fun haven. Each Fat Cats location partners with different restaurants, including The Pizza Factory at its Salt Lake facility and Champzz Bar at the Westminster location.

Autumn has some of the best seasonal activities of the year, from crunching through the leaves to find the perfect pumpkin to holding close to your loved ones while running through the eerie turns of a htaunted house. That’s why when Brett and Nicole Herbst first started making their corn mazes—which they say once held a Guinness world record—they didn’t stick to just one activity. They decided to fill their farm with a celebration of the whole harvest season.
During the day, guests can partake of the farm’s more than 40 activities and events, including squeal-filled pig races, corn and pumpkin cannons, and a Halloween trick-or-treat parade. This year's main maze is themed around the Brigham Young University-University of Utah rivalry and is cut into 12 acres of murmuring stalks, offering quick, easy paths for little ones, complex designs for the ultimate adventurers, and a haunted nighttime excursion guided only by a flashlight. At night, in an area isolated from all the family fun, gleefully terrified screams drift from Insanity Point, which incorporates evil clowns, the sensation of being buried alive, and an abandoned farmhouse where dentists will try and talk to you even though you obviously can’t talk back.
