The Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando was founded to give those who share the Jewish tradition a communal setting in which to exercise, play, and learn with one another. Between them, the two locations boast full fitness facilities, tennis courts, and an outdoor pool. Group exercise classes and a gymnasium aid adults in acquiring fitter bodies, and sports leagues provide a venue for grownups to compete and ceremoniously dump sports drinks on each other. The center also puts on its own full-blown theatrical productions.
The center’s staff tailors certain events to the needs of senior citizens, helping them with exercise regimes such as yoga. Staff members also assist the Senior Nite club in organizing trips to new restaurants or the theater and help pintsize guests by helming a preschool, kids' camps, and extracurricular programs. Staffers can even pick up youngsters from school and ferry them to one of the facilities for afterschool development programs, which, like backyard mazes, are designed by the child’s parents to challenge young ones.

Carrie DeLozier wanted to create a place for women where time disappeared and they could be truly free to focus on their bodies and minds without the distractions of the outside world. That vision became barre54. Each of her studio’s spacious interiors flatters bodies with natural light shining through floor-to-ceiling windows and chandeliers hanging from exposed ceilings. Instructors with backgrounds in dance, theater, and modeling lead 54-minute sessions of isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches, earning the Winter Park location the title of Best Workout Facility from the Orlando Sentinel. The program is an extension of the Lotte Berk Method developed in the 1950s by the German dancer of the same name. Ms. Berk used the body-aligning movements of ballet to recondition her body after a car accident. Since then, various incarnations of her exercises have been practiced by thousands of students including celebrities such as Madonna, Kelly Ripa, and the all-animal cast of Fantasia.
