When attempting to hit a baseball traveling 90 mph or faster, every fraction of a second matters. That’s why Baseball Vision Program’s hitting guru Chris McKnight emphasizes the process of seeing the ball as the pitcher delivers it and tracking it on its way to the strike zone—the earlier a player’s eyes “pick up” the ball, the more time he or she has to react. By training players’ eyes and the reactions of their hands to be in unison, Chris gives them a valuable tool not just at the plate, but in the field. A veteran coach with experience as a manager in the NCAA and as a scout, Chris has developed successful training methods with more than 3,000 students.
Fondy Sports Park entertains miniature sports enthusiasts of all ages with a mini-golf course and other kiddie-friendly games. The 18-hole mini-golf course challenges even the most studious putter with dynamic holes guarded by hills and obstacles including animal statues, buildings, and sentient bogeys and birdies. Just like the Masters Tournament, mini-golfers with max determination can play out the entire course and seek to win a free game on the 18th-hole challenge. Though not included in this Groupon, Fondy Sports Park also satiates adventure seekers with go-karts, batting cages, bumper boats, and other thrilling activities to get the family out of the house and help them forget last night's contentious six-hour Monopoly game.
The certified tummy-trimming instructors at Fusion Fitness lead all fitness levels through a schedule of 17 weekly classes with a concentration in Zumba. Latin rhythms and frantic footwork ignite calories in the classic Zumba sessions, and lightweight toning sticks and dumbbells intensify workouts and increase strength for respectable handshakes and intimidating hand-crushes in Zumba toning classes. Older adults ease into moves while partaking in the slower-paced Zumba Gold and the newly offered yoga classes. Meanwhile, the Body Sculpt’s 45-minute resistance-training sessions let participants attempt to push and pull immovable objects and rise against oppressive weight regimes.
Rock River Lanes gathers groups for the time-honored pastime of repeatedly knocking over 10 pesky pins before celebrations bathed in frothy brews and pizza pies. At the lanes, groups will first equip their toes with specialized shoes, much like donning flippers to visit the aquarium's whale tank. With feet draped in smooth, alley-approved soles, groups can begin their pin pummeling. In two hours, bands of bowlers can sneak in several 10-frame games, sending balls twisting and tumbling down the lanes, pins clanging and clamoring around the pin deck. While championing the spherical side in the battle between pins and bowling balls, athletes can satisfy tummies by tackling slices of a one-topping pizza or indulging in a few glasses of performance-enhancing domestic suds from a pitcher.
