Aesthetes and anthropologists can devour an eyeful of wide-ranging cultural artifacts and extensive fine art collections at the Mabee-Gerrer. The permanent collection of Egyptian art claims Oklahoma's only mummy that's not living, and the antiquities section features sculpture and pottery from ancient Greece, China, and Mesopotamia. Visitors can also set their sights on a broad sweep of American works, including timeworn Aztec textiles housed in the Arts of Ancient America collection, present-day paintings by Oklahoma artists in the Contemporary Art section, and the unpainted canvases hanging in the museum's 23rd-century collection.

The word "extreme" is often overused by sodas, tortilla chips, and Vanilla Ices, but it definitely applies to the rough-and-tumble Grave Digger Race. In a merciless 5-mile course, competitors huff, puff, and soil their skivvies as they charge across intense, soggy terrain in their quest for victory. Along the muddy path, racers must hurdle a slew of 23 daunting obstacles, including walls made of tires, walls made of rope, and walls made of wall. Beer, food, showers, and contestant medals help alleviate postrace fatigue, and proceeds from the race benefit the Oklahoma chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse.

In all of weight loss, there may be no concept less aptly named than the “low-calorie” diet. That’s because the calorie unit we associate with food actually refers to kilo calories—meaning when we say, “2,000 calories a day,” we actually mean 2,000,000. A calorie is a unit of heat, or energy—specifically, the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius. And if the number of calories we ingest is bad news, the upside is that we are burning them all the time.

A certain amount of calories—about 60–75% of the calories you burn each day—are needed to sustain the body's unconscious functions, such as breathing and circulation. Known as basal metabolic rate, the specific percentage depends on factors such as size and body composition, gender, and age (typically, as people get older, fat makes up a larger portion of body weight, causing calories to burn more slowly). Digestion makes up about another 10 percent of the calories burned, leaving physical activity to account for the rest.

During exercise, the muscles contract, causing the body's adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules to break down as the heart continues to pump faster and faster—increasing the body’s demand for more energy. Once the muscles have depleted the day’s caloric intake, they turn to other calorie sources to fuel the fire—making weight loss possible as the body begins to sacrifice fat cells to the god of the treadmill.

HeyDay Family Fun provides activities, games, and family fun for all ages. On an indoor ropes course, harnessed climbers traverse balance beams and bridges suspended far above the large arcade. From that vantage point, patrons get a bird's eye view of their rivals' air-hockey strategies or watch slick masses of horsepower slip around corners on Need for Speed and Fast and Furious racing games. In the two-level, 7,000-square-foot laser-tag arena, walls of swirling fog close tightly around warriors as they hide under bridges and dodge behind illuminated pillars. The noise of good-natured combat drifts faintly out over 18 holes of mini golf littered with waterfalls, streams, sand traps, and rugged outdoorsmen trying to live off sand.

DoubleDave's Pizzaworks, an onsite family-friendly restaurant and sports bar, quells protesting tummies between games with a menu of strombolis, wings, sandwiches, and hand-tossed pizzas made with fresh-daily dough. HeyDay Family Fun also offers birthday party and group packages.

Fish Strong's anglers scan the azure vistas of Oklahoma’s lakes for tiny splashes and darting glints of silver on fishing expeditions with groups of all ages and experience levels. Though most of the company’s excursions take place on scenic Lake Murray—a veritable gold mine of smallmouth bass located within the 12,500-acre Lake Murray State Park—visitors may also cast their lines across the glassy surfaces of Lakes Arbuckle, Konawa, Thunderbird, Hefner, and Eufaula. Two boats outfitted with powerful engines and modern tracking equipment home in on scaly targets from a distance, enabling the luckiest fishermen to catch as many as 30 bass, crappies, and catfish on a single trip. Trips depart at sunrise and in the early evening—when fish are most prone to snatching up bait—and include all necessary gear, from rods and tackle to sunscreen and wax to protect ears from yodeling sirens.
