Sportime runs more than 150 tennis courts in the New York area, and it's not unusual to spot John McEnroe at one of them. The famous tennis player helms an eponymous tennis academy at three Sportime locations, whose young participants perfect their serves, master new techniques, and get pro tips from the legend himself.
McEnroe's academy is just one of Sportime's many offerings, however. Along with tennis lessons for adults, most complexes boast multi-sport courts for games such as basketball, volleyball, and Lean On The Net WIthout Falling. Inside group exercise studios, patrons can chisel their stomachs during "Ab-solution" classes, or dance off calories with festive Zumba routines. Most locations host multi-sport summer camps for kids, too, keeping youngsters active and teaching them to work as part of a team.

Life coach John Hinrichsen first discovered the importance of personal motivation as an athlete. He has embarked on adventures ranging from high-altitude mountaineering to international backpacking. All of this accumulated experience helps him turn his motivational skills to others through his Image Cycling program, a themed indoor-cycling series. Held in the cool darkness of Centerport's Vanderbilt Planetarium, each group class guides students through a different cycling route set to inspirational music and vibrant panoramic imagery. John may coach groups during rides lit by images of the universe, hill climbs set to the sights and sounds of storms, or Bon Fire rides led by the invigorating smell of burnt marshmallows.
