For 35 years, Valerie Compton has dipped her toes into every aspect of fitness. She followed up her experience in track and field and tennis by building her career as a personal trainer, and she later branched out into Power Pilates, Spinning, and nutrition. When she designed BarreFusion in 2006, she struck upon the latest trend in fitness. Today, Valerie has opened a new location and surrounds herself with instructors who channel their experience as classical dancers, gymnastics, and triathletes to lead rigorous barre classes. Valerie starts her instruction with a BarreLite class that introduces newcomers to the proper forms and techniques to master fundamentals. From there, she encourages students to test out a number of other classes. The popular BarreFusion class combines Pilates, yoga, ballet, and light weights to sculpt legs and cores. She also offers highly popular Spinning classes that challenge students with a high-energy, aerobic workout that mimics cycling in front of stampeding wildebeests.

The 10’x10’ course simulator screens at Randy’s Indoor Golf vividly replicate the bucolic, short-grass corridors of famous courses from the comfort of an indoor, 18-hole golf studio. The fairway facsimiles allow golfers to strike real golf balls off of custom, divot-action golf mats that emulate clubs’ response on real grass without offending Mother Earth's curvaceous topography. Each simulated course is vibrantly brought to life using 3-D graphics, whisking club-toting clientele to courses modeled after 22 famous links such as Torrey Pines and Bethpage Black. Throughout each round, players also benefit from swing-analysis feedback on each shot, allowing them to savor the precise yardage of an extra-long drive or enlist concrete data during motivational speeches delivered to underperforming 6-irons. Before each round, players can also adjust the virtual weather to match their stormy temperament, reflect their sunny disposition, or satisfy their fixation with golf ball-size hail. In addition to golf, Randy's offers other virtual sports, including bowling, baseball, and hang gliding.

Whether the name of the game is to have some family fun or to scream like a banshee, Cliff's Amusement Park has been the place to do it for more than 50 years. The first thing you'll notice as you drive up is the New Mexico Rattler, a 3,000-foot wooden roller coaster that twists and turns its way around the edges of the park and plunges—for a few terrifying seconds—into an underground tunnel. The Cliff Hanger makes an anticipation-building ascent before freefalling back to earth, and the SideWinder twirls passengers 80 feet into the air on a structure resembling Paul Bunyan's spare wagon wheel. The jungle-themed WaterMania area lets youngsters climb like monkeys and race down slippery water slides. They also can enjoy slower-paced fun inside bumper cars, on the Tilt-A-Whirl, or during a leisurely trip around the park on an old-timey train.

Across 7,000 square feet of open space, kids tumble, slide, and climb through Hoot’s Ultimate Party Zone’s brightly colored attractions. Bouncy castles and a soft 20-foot-high slide stretch their wobbly peaks toward the center’s towering ceiling, and a 40-foot-long obstacle course challenges runners to cross canvas bridges and pretend to jump tricycles over 40 school buses. Open-play times allow kids to drop in for bursts of energy expenditure, and weekend party packages provide balloons, pizzas, and goodie bags for birthday celebrations. Additionally, all play structures are made from strong materials, allowing adults to accompany their kids into the bouncy arenas or retire to the lounge to recline in leather chairs, watch television, and connect to the free WiFi.

At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.

With 40 years of experience, Valerie Santagto?s camera lens has focused on everything from Kevin Costner?s famous baby blues to the starkly beautiful mesas of New Mexico during a decades-long career that has involved clicking her shutter for the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair, and the New Mexico Tourism Department. Her love of Hopi culture drew Santagto to the southwest after she spent years capturing images for high-profile clients in New York and Europe, where photographers are legally required to wear berets. Now, Santagto composes headshots, documents weddings, and shares her philosophy that photography is a love affair with life through workshops that introduce pupils to the art of taking stunning images.
