Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
Two-year-olds in HappyFeet soccer training sing “Roll, roll, roll your ball” to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” The program’s graduates, though, often go on to more sophisticated activities—such as collegiate and professional soccer careers and jobs kicking computers that won’t work right. Founded by Andy Barney, the HappyFeet franchise encompasses two programs: one for tots aged 2–6 and Legends soccer for older youths. HappyFeet’s coaches focus on childhood development while hosting onsite classes at preschools. Their curriculum fuses soccer drills with kid-friendly characters such as Gus the Gorilla. Meanwhile, the Legends program takes a more grownup approach, emphasizing the arts of dribbling, scoring, and evading opposing players with deft footwork.
Dr. Jackson Seim rarely uses the exact same treatments twice. Rather, he customizes each session to the particular temperaments of each unique client's vertebrae. Dr. Seim employs elusive Gonstead chiropractic techniques, which were formulated in 1923 by a mechanical engineer who brought this precise engineer's perspective to the healthy workings of the human spine. In addition to relieving backaches, licensed massage therapist Sarah Schmit administers full massage treatments in the office and chair-based mini-massages in a client's workplace or treehouse.
Dr. Joel Osten promotes self-healing with chiropractic and acupuncture treatments that focus on restoring motion to creaky spinal joints and soothing irritated nervous systems. As an alumnus of Palmer College of Chiropractic and a fellow of the International Association of Medical Acupuncture, Dr. Osten draws on his extensive experience to relieve achy backs, neck pains, and cramps from human-bowling tournaments. While chiropractic techniques address skeletal issues such as misaligned vertebrae, acupuncture employs ancient Chinese wisdom to redirect energy with fine needles placed at critical pathways on the body. Dr. Osten encourages his patients to try chiropractic care before drugs or surgery and responds to patients’ concerns on his Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
