Bounce Wright's inflatable castles, bounce houses, and playgrounds keep kids bouncing with joy during birthday celebrations, block parties, and family reunions. Kids can shoot down the multi-playground unit's inflatable slide or leap into the air to dunk a basketball inside a bounce house while parents outside man a rented concession machine full of fluffy cotton candy or buttery popcorn. Bounce Wright also equips parties with tables and chairs.
A pediatric physical therapist, Marc Castelo has witnessed impact of play and therapeutic touch during his work with infants and in early child development. Recognizing that babies could benefit from massage just as much—if not more so—than adults, he created Play 2 Grow. At his child-care center, techniques such as loving touch and innovative play are a vehicle for improved growth and caregiver-child bonding. In that vein, he and program director Jenny Smith-Davids interweaves play, games, and socialization, all with an eye toward improving infants’ developmental capabilities and future cribbage skills. Parents are also welcome to take part in the learning process through “scaffolding,” during which they are active participants in family play activities.
Certified trainer Larry Batchlor uses his experience as an Olympic athlete and his 20-plus years of personal training to help clients lose up to 5 pounds each week. To achieve those results, he gives each client his full attention while leading them through a series of core-intensive workouts, using weights not only to tone muscle but also to enhance cardio. He changes up the exercises each session to keep everyone engaged, sending legs spinning one day on the treadmill and fists flying the next with a boxing routine.
Born from the passion and ability of world champion kickboxer Khunpon Dechkampu, Bangkok Boxing Fitness challenges newcomers and veterans alike to enter the rough-and-tumble world of muay thai, otherwise known as the science of eight limbs.

Bangkok Boxing Fitness' instructors fully embrace the style, and some are quite decorated, in addition to possessing extensive mixed martial arts fighting experience. Beyond fitness classes, they also lead beginner-friendly sessions that cover MMA techniques.

Kids slip down huge slides, scramble through obstacle courses, and bound within Mighty Jumps Party and Play Center's colorful assortment of inflatables. Basketball arcade games and air hockey challenge all ages to try their skills, and a toddler area shields tiny ones from too-large leaps. For parents, large-screen TVs, wireless Internet, and computer stations remain about an arm's distance from the play area, if that arm belongs to someone with exceptionally long arms. The staff specialize in hosting parties with packages including customizable add-ons, all-day admission for each guest, and cleanup.
