In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes opened The Little Gym based on his new take on physical education. His curriculum emphasized motivating children to achieve instead of pressuring them to win. As a result, The Little Gym became a noncompetitive, positive, nurturing environment where young ones could develop physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Since then, The Little Gyms have sprouted up across the country. The programs and classes aim to help kids develop skills such as rhythm and coordination, and kids camps during winter, spring, and summer breaks prevent children from creating finger paintings that express the existential ennui they feel when school is out of session.

The servicemen of Pearl Harbor's naval base were taking some much-needed R&R between early-morning repairs inside Hangar 37 when suddenly they heard a buzzing overhead. With the humming of their own planes and battleships periodically filling the air, this rapidly approaching sound wasn't foreign to their ears, but this instance proved to be drastically different. Thunderous explosions soon overtook Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona struggled to stay afloat as the Imperial Japanese Navy delivered a surprise military strike, which resulted in one of the most devastating attacks on American soil. With a mission to preserve the history of this tragic event, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor opened that very same hangar to the public, hundreds of feet from where ships burned and men courageously fought more than 70 years ago.

Hangar 37's 42,000-square-foot space currently houses many of the museum's artifacts, which include a World War II–era B-25B bomber, Japanese Zero, and naval planes such as the SBD Dauntless. Also open to the public, Hangar 79 displays the actual bullet holes that pierced its windows during the attack, while an authentic WWII maintenance shop contains an exhibit that explains how planes ran on Lucky Strike cigarette materials. Visitors can experience the museum's ever-evolving collection of exhibits––which has included segments dedicated to the Korean War's MiG Alley and the Flying Tigers––through guided tours in both hangars and submerse themselves in the virtual world of the museum's combat flight simulator.

Skaters Edge entertains inner children and regular children with a 22,000-square-foot skating facility, lined with gleaming maple wood and accented by a glowing arcade. A pair of classic-style roller skates gather speed over the slick surface, propelled by retro tunes and an opulent light show. An online schedule outlines the skate house's availability for open skate hours. This Groupon includes skate rental, but patrons can bring their own skates or rollerblades provided they adhere to the Skaters Edge rink rules and the no-cooties rule.

At Navarino Hills, skis, snowboards, and inner tubes zoom down trails blanketed in freshly made snow. Double chairlifts and cable tows ferry visitors to the top of the slopes so they can start their run or help search for the yeti's lost contacts. After hitting the mountain, head inside the chalet to warm up with hot cocoa, coffee, or cappuccino daily or fish fries every Friday.

At Ellipse Fitness, the only pieces of machinery that you operate are the levers, pulleys, and ball-and-socket mechanisms of your own skeleton. The gyms abstain from treadmills and bikes in favor of a full class schedule and a cooperative group atmosphere. With 35 or more lessons scheduled per week, certified instructors guide students of all experience levels through an ever-changing line-up of strength and cardio drills. These routines incorporate tools such as resistance bands, TRX suspension cords, kettle bells, battling ropes, and kickboxing equipment, though the primary instrument is always the human physique.

In addition to their standard classes, the staff also hosts boot-camp sessions and seminars on mastering your metabolism. Their weight-loss programs encompass weekly check-ins, during which clients receive nutritional resources and gauge their progress by taking measurements instead of stockpiling all the food they didn't eat in a jar. Regardless of its ultimate goal, each Ellipse Fitness regimen involves personal attention and a holistic, full-body approach to wellness.
