A night of dancing can easily turn into a workout—minus the boring, repetitive exercises and the feeling that you'd rather be doing something else. Zumba fuses hip-shaking, Latin-inspired dance moves with music from around the world to recreate the exuberance of the dance floor at any time of day. To that end, the instructors at Zumba Fitness lead their students through easy-to-follow steps while music blasts from a boom box manned by a tiny DJ.
The trainers at Gym-Synergy temper their students' bodies for more than just fitness. They combine more than 40 years of training experience in mixed martial arts and fighting styles such as Kenpo to guide students toward self-preservation. Lessons in the Filipino Kali method, for instance, teach students how to defend themselves with their hands, sticks, swords, and knives while stressing the importance of acquiring intelligence and discipline. Students can also learn techniques for self-defense in tight spaces, while sitting down, and against multiple attackers. Cardio-kickboxing classes, on the other hand, focus on the body's endurance and composition, using the method's kicks and punches more as aerobic exercise than as instruction for what to do to the next donut you see.

Unlike the massive movie corporations whose theater complexes pop up in every city and shopping mall, Elvis Cinemas is Colorado owned and operated and focuses all its attention on just three theaters.
