In 1992, Dewey Heffner and his son George started selling black tire tubes out of their truck under a sign that read, "Butts Tubes." Through the years, the seed of this roadside tubing company sprouted 11 different outdoor activities and matured into Harpers Ferry Adventure Center.

At Harper's Adventure Center, single- and multiday adventures fuse adrenaline-packed thrills with the scenery of the Potomac and Shenandoah River regions. More than 100 species of birds, 60 types of butterflies, and flocks of wild birthday balloons fill the sky on hiking trails, which wind through hilly terrain. The crashing sound of Bull Falls forms the soundtrack for whitewater-rafting trips, and treetop canopies serve as the decor for ziplining.

Drawing from these activities, Harpers Ferry Adventure Center's crew can design custom adventure packages or help customers to choose a predesigned trip. They also lead team-building retreats using outdoor activities to teach universal skills such as working toward a common goal or ziplining to the stage for business presentations.

Dr. Edward Perraut hasn't just performed more than 50,000 LASIK surgeries, he's also undergone the laser-based procedure. This boosts the credibility of the Johns Hopkins fellow and his fellow doctors, who speak from experience when advising clients on the LASIK procedures. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with a small incision to open a flap over the corneal surface. Using a small-spot laser beam, WaveLight's Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser helps reforms the curvature of the cornea according to calibrations customized for each patient. The flap is then closed and begins resealing immediately, thanks to the eye's ability to heal quickly. The surgeons furnish patients with home-care instructions, as well as recommendations for follow-up appointments. A small percentage may need touch-up procedures, which are included if the patient is a viable candidate. An FAQ page anticipates common questions, such as, "will LASIK affect my x-ray vision?"

CEO Peter Harvey believes that a quality gym staff must demonstrate more than technical expertise. "Service doesn't only mean showing someone how to do an arm curl," he says. Certified personal trainers develop workouts that zero in on each person?s specific goals, giving clients the skills to pole-vault over impassable plateaus. By steadfastly refusing to hand out fish in favor of putting on master classes in fishing, they help clients become self-sufficient, educating them on fundamentals.

During these one-on-one sessions, and in solo workouts, guests set calories ablaze atop rows of continually updated equipment. Treadmills, recumbent bikes, and strength-training tools line the walls.

Members can also drop in for as many group classes as they can muster. Inside a separate studio, stationary cycles whir in time with galvanizing music, kickboxing strikes arc through the air, and barbells rise with each BodyPump rep. For more meditative practices, Pilates sessions and several types of yoga enhance flexibility and focus.

The certified massage therapists and holistic healers at Om Chakra invite guests to discover deeper mind-body connections inside a sanctuary designed to foster states of sublime serenity. Warm earth tones, zen-like decor, and five private, candlelit treatment rooms envelop guests during multisensory experiential massages or healing reiki sessions, coaxing them to unplug from the synthetic, bustling external world and explore a space within themselves that remains still and calm. This sense of calmness, the staff believes, stems from successful alignment and unblocking of the seven energy channels, or chakras, that run along the spine.

Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with gym workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts lathered in a fresh coat of peanut butter every morning. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
