Tango Argentina Club's dance instructors—native Argentinian Ruben Carrasco and his French wife, Marie—strive to introduce new people to tango and ignite a lifelong passion by holding dance lessons and hosting a BYOB dance party with complimentary buffet on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday night. During these parties, attendees can dance to live DJ sets, dine on a buffet of French and Argentine food, and watch fellow energetic tango dancers. Throughout the month, the duo takes a brief break from tango dancing to yield the floor to outside experts, who teach such styles as salsa, ballroom, and west coast swing.

With today's first option, two club-wielders can loop the 6,200-yard links of Phillips Park Golf Course, an 18-hole grassy monolith first braved in the mid-1920s. Bisect wide-open fairways with a well-struck drive on the club's front nine, a links-style layout advantageous for long hitters who can evade strategically placed sand-traps and roaming fairway trolls. The hilly back-nine places a higher premium on orb-mashing precision with tighter, tree-lined fairways and picturesque water hazards. Phillips Park employees will help ward off putt-defying hunger pangs with a complimentary hot dog and chips (a $6.50 value), and both divoteers will be granted a small bucket of range balls (an $8 value) to warm up before the round or use as eyeball facsimiles to terrorize gullible children at the next local carnival.

Spokes is a massive two-wheeler retailer and service and repair shop. The repair people are experts in many makes and models, including Campagnolo, Shimano, Sram, Mavic, and bikes whittled out of a block of cement, and they crank out quality work in days, instead of weeks, months, or the amount of time spent working on Avatar. The standard tune-up is a full bucket of tweaks and twimbles, including a general cleaning; a check of parts for wear; brake, bearing, and gear adjustment; and more. The bike fitting consists of a cleat adjustment; seat and handlebar adjustment; fitting for hip, knee, and foot alignment; and a limp handshake.

The fleet-footed instructors at Vargo’s Dance impart ballroom-dancing skills to beginning or advanced students in custom private lessons and fun, social group classes. Whether students want to learn a variety of dance styles or just brush up their macarena, each lesson is customized to meet individual goals. In addition to styles ranging from the waltz to the hustle, Vargo's Dance offers body-toning Zumba classes for all ages and sizes. Classes are led by licensed instructor Tom Lafser, who lost more than 100 pounds himself through Zumba's fusion of upbeat music and Latin-inspired dance moves.

Sunlight from floor-to-ceiling windows drenches the spacious studio as dancers sashay across pale hardwood floors. A long, high mirror allows students to check their form and ensure their tutus are on straight as instructors demonstrate techniques.

Between constant pants and grunts, it can be tough to belt a few song lyrics. But at S&L Tri-Cycle Fit Studio, students strive to do just, spinning feverishly while singing into handheld microphones during karaoke cycling class. The musical motif carries over to the studio's other cycling classes, such as pedal parties, whose colored lights, thumping beats, and disco ball recreate the experience of a nightclub without the mean bouncer drawing mustaches on everyone's IDs.

All these unique class concepts sprout from the mind of owner Leslie Grosshauser, who's worked in the fitness industry for more than 25 years. In S&L, Leslie cultivates a place to get fit, have fun, and fulfill a competitive edge while experiencing plenty of variety—a key component to keeping routines fresh.

Classes can help develop the motor skills of children aged 3 and older and work with adults to challenge and improve flexibility, fitness, and energy levels.
