With hands gripped to the wheels of karts capable of cresting 45 miles per hour, up to 12 racers hum around the hairpin turns and straightaways of K1 Speed's indoor track during adrenaline-spiking sprints toward the podium. This brand of excitement can be found at all 20+ locations, where racers eschew the fumes and inflammatory skywriting of gas kart exhaust for European, eco-friendly electric karts designed to instantly accelerate out of curves, which are bordered by safety barriers that absorb impacts.
Skaters glide with style and grace across the sleek surfaces of two hockey rinks at KHS Ice Arena.

In addition, public-skate sessions let visitors enjoy some freestyle skating in a stick-free atmosphere.

SwingIt Trapeze co-founder Nick Selvy can undoubtedly impress anyone. If the singing, acting, and dancing talents he's cultivated from the age of 11 don't do it, he could ride a six-foot unicycle and juggle fire. The jack of all trades also taught surfing lessons for a while, and performed stunts and magic, but his real passion is flight. For 20 years, Selvy has been swinging through the air on rigs that he's designed and installed, using state-of-the-art equipment to ensure safety. More recently, he co-founded SwingIt Trapeze with teacher and youth development specialist Brian Kirch to pass on this skill to anyone ready to have some fun.
During lessons, Selvy and Kirch's team lead students through the basic techniques of the trapeze. Fledgling fliers begin by hanging from their knees before progressing into swinging and flying without safety lines. The emphasis here is not on competitive skill, but rather on enjoyment, fitness, and being able to keep up with Spiderman during action-packed dreams.
Planning a wedding requires a daunting number of decisions. A-line or trumpet dress? DJ or live band? Traditional reception or black-tie marathon race? Premier Bridal Shows makes the planning process easier and more engaging by hosting special events, which allow wedding professionals from across the region to feature their goods and services all under the same roof.
Joined by friends, family members, or fianc?s, brides can spend the day taking notes as they visit booths staffed by caterers, floral designers, photographers and videographers, jewelers, and other specialists eager to help them prepare for that special day. The scheduled fashion shows display trendy wedding styles and dazzle crowds with choreographed dances. After tasting the cake decorators' samples, getting a miniature makeover from one of the aestheticians, and consulting with dozens upon dozens of wedding experts, attendees can return to planning, aided by their newfound knowledge and connections.
The trainers at Precision Fitness believe that achieving wellbeing is a deeply individual process. For this reason, they work only with small groups of students, avoiding the intimidating bustle that’s common at most gyms and instead facilitating focused, nonjudgmental sessions. The intimate setting allows them to create exercise regimens for patrons of all walks of life, from those with little gym experience to seasoned athletes or brides-to-be. Their programs typically involve a mix of cardiovascular and weight training, as well as nutrition tips for healthier long-term diets that don't just advise patrons to eat two apples a day. Though they embrace a private atmosphere during lessons, group activities outside of the gym, such as bowling outings and dinner parties, encourage a sense of community among their clients.
