Hot Sand’s studio buzzes with activity as instructors dip pipes into molten glass and then demonstrate how to blow the globs into recognizable shapes. Nearby, other students work on finishing their pieces, refining contours atop wooden blocks and polishing surfaces on a diamond wheel. Hot Sand's glass-blowing artists impart these techniques through basic walk-in experiences and immersive workshops, showing guests how to craft objects such as candy dishes, pumpkin-shaped ornaments, or one-time-use dodgeballs. Welcoming visitors of all ages, Hot Sand earned the distinction as a top kids' destination in New Jersey Monthly's 2012 Jersey Choice awards. The studio also expands the aesthetic tastes of the community through a gallery that showcases original works for sale.

Each year, MudManX issues runners the world’s dirtiest challenge: a race across mud-slathered obstacles that test both agility and laundry skills. Designed with the assistance of US Special Forces and Mother Nature's cool sister who lets you play in puddles, the course features obstacles inspired the elements of earth, wind, fire, and water. While exploring the course, runners travel through mud pits, past fiery trails, and over icy water before securing the boon of beer and live music. The post-race after party welcomes a steady lineup of bands and DJs and includes a MiniX obstacle course so children can finally discover the joys of getting dirty.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Red Cross, whose volunteers often rush through harsh and dirty conditions to deliver food, clothing, shelter, and comfort to those in need.

To aid diverse fitness goals, the class schedule is peppered with everything from Pilates to cardio kickboxing to the client favorite Hard-Core 50, which targets muscles between the shoulders and hips to improve posture, tighten abs, and keep them securely between the shoulders and hips.
Situated just steps from the beach, Asbury Park Boardwalk Amusements stretches before visitors a local, sun-drenched getaway rife with refreshing dips and holes in one. Pintsize and full-size visitors alike can sponge up some much-needed R&R beneath the Splash Park's colorful, water-sprouting contraptions, which are perfect for cooling off on a hot day or teaching bellybuttons how to chug. On the 18-hole mini golf course, sights and sounds of the boardwalk swirl around putters as they weave from hole to hole. The facility's convenient location also makes it a breeze for families to continue their outings, either by catching a show or having dinner at one of the boardwalk's many popular spots.
