Sean Dickson knows firsthand how fitness can equate to survival. He spent 10 years in the Army, serving in the 82nd Airborne Division, attending Ranger School, and working as a recon scout in Iraq and as a special forces medical sergeant in Afghanistan. He found CrossFit when he returned to Alabama, and has since set PRs that include a 465-pound deadlift and a 5:37 mile. Along with his fellow instructors, Sean leads students of all levels through intense workouts that use Olympic weightlifting equipment, stumps attached to chains, and kettlebells to build strength. The class schedule includes three strength-building classes a week, with the rest of the classes based on metabolic conditioning and the art of ripping off a T-shirt.

Locals agree that the best was to take in Noccalula Falls Park's natural beauty with a ride on The C. P. Huntington Train. The train wends its way through park grounds, taking guests between the outdoor animal habitat?home to a lion, a lynx, and foxes, to name a few?and the deer park, home to 10-point buck named Rambo.

The locomotive chugs by Pioneer Village, a collection of rough-hewn log buildings assembled in the style of early settlements. The trek concludes by the park's miniature golf course, which uses natural rock formations, waterfalls, and streams to add challenge to its 18 holes, rather than showcasing a less friendly challenge that goes through the lion's habitat.

Shrill giggles and the pitter-patter of tiny, sock-swathed feet echo off the walls of Pump It Up, where Lilliputian guests pinball through a metropolis of inflatable slides and bouncy enclosures. Small groups of ankle-biters tear through the facility during private parties, plummeting down slides, scaling plush ladders, and bounding off of springy floors.
