Whether bouncing, swinging, shooting, or running, visitors to Adrenaline City partake in a heart-pounding, exhilarating experience. Four massive attractions let kids and families take their pick of amusements—choose the trampoline park, and you'll jump and flip over 11,000 square feet of wall-to-wall trampolines. Choose the ropes course, and you'll balance over rickety bridges, swing above the ground, and wind your way through rope forests while safely tethered to the ceiling. Laser tag grants players with a virtually infinite variety of game modes that only make the 6,200 square foot arena awash with black lights, fog, and obstacles that much more thrilling. For a real-life video game experience, try Time Freak—the colorful game challenges players to see who can press a bounty of lit-up buttons the fastest, leading to a frantic match that requires speed, concentration, and a promise not to play the game on public elevators.
At Studio 57 Group Fitness, healthy habits sneak into clients’ lives with stealth and speed. Here, exercise masquerades as fun during exciting classes that torch calories and sculpt muscles. Upbeat instructors fuel the metamorphosis by filling workouts with dance steps, weightlifting drills, and yoga poses suitable for all fitness levels. Multiple Class formats are offered including Zumba, BARREffect, Body Pump, Yoga, Attack! and Turbo Kick. Classes such as Enduro and Tabata incorporate high-intensity interval training, pairing bursts of cardio and strength training with brief rest periods to boost the metabolism. To boost energy levels and encourage conversation, two classrooms brim with colorful works by local artists. The studio offers childcare during several weekday-morning classes, which helps students to build strength and stamina, not mouthwatering Play-Doh hamburgers.
While many martial arts classes claim to turn fists and feet into lethal weapons, ArtFit’s classes actually hand their students lethal weapons—namely, samurai swords. Samurai swordsmanship, or iaijutsu, is the dojo’s main focus. In classes, sensei teach the 450-year-old art, supplementing weapon wielding and empty-hand defense techniques with the culture, language, and history of the practice.
The course catalogue is more comprehensive than just swordplay, however, and the dojo pays respect to a host of other traditions. Adults and children can master all manner of arts martial, including karate, kickboxing, MMA, and defensive tactics for law enforcement. ArtFit recently introduced a diverse selection of dance classes as well. Though distinct in style, each class is rather high-energy. Students can get a high-impact leg workout in Can Can, tone muscles with hip-hop’s isometric movements, and increase upper body strength in aerial artiste sessions.
