Teams clad in protective goggles scatter into a mountain field thick with laurel, rhododendron, and brier as they seek cover, their markers locked and loaded. Hearing paintballs whiz through the brush, a player dives into prone position. Adjusting her goggles after colliding with the ground, the combatant freezes, notices the silhouette of a whitetail deer crouched in the brush just yards away, and lets down her guard long enough to appreciate the moment before taking new aim.
At Pocono Mountain Paintball, players step onto 12 fields—including three scenario fields—ranging from untouched natural terrain to 1,700 feet of trenches and sandbag bunkers. To maximize players' game time, Pocono's staff maintains a reservation system that limits the fields to 100 players per day. Further touches include camouflage overall rentals, an online FAQ with participant advice, and changing rooms with hot showers so players can spruce up before meeting Mom for a post-game debriefing. Pocono's crew also coordinates rafting, biking, and kayaking packages through partner company Whitewater Rafting Adventures.

Since 1979, the staff of 24-7 Fitness Clubs has made it their mission to obliterate any barriers keeping their members from working out. Each club is open 24 hours a day year-round, with free childcare available during specific times of day. That commitment to availability helps even the busiest people find time to hop on Nautilus and Cybex strength-training circuits, StairMasters, and other equipment. Group fitness classes get students sweating as they execute punches in Turbo Kick cardio-kickboxing sessions or dance to Zumba's Latin-inspired workouts. Full-body boot-camp workouts are also available, mixing in calisthenics, strength training, and agility drills to continuously challenge bodies. All of the clubs’ personal trainers hold bachelor's degrees in health-related fields and have national certifications from accredited organizations, unlike less qualified trainers certified by arcade arm-wrestling machines.
After their workouts, members can unwind in the whirlpool, sauna, or steam rooms, then drop off their free rental towels for cleaning. For sports lovers, the Allentown location also boasts basketball, volleyball, squash, and badminton courts, as well as 11 outdoor and 8 indoor tennis courts.

The staff of Twin Ponds heads up a series of integrated wellness programs that boost patrons' holistic health with counseling, yoga, and other fitness services. During the center's yoga classes, students work to strengthen the bond between their bodies and minds, posing through one-hour sessions that meet seven days a week. Laughing yoga implores pent-up giggles to emerge during sessions that boost both endorphins and the self-esteem of struggling standup comics in attendance. Fundamentals of Yoga and Beginners Yoga stress foundations of the practice, including core strength, flexibility, alignment, and rhythmic breathing.
As the sun rises over Manito Equestrian Center's sprawling farm, horses stir and whinny within their stalls. The steeds blink as they emerge from their stately, centuries-old bank barn to run and jump across 60 acres of land, including indoor and outdoor riding arenas.
A staff of seasoned horsewomen attends these gentle mounts, filling their stalls with fresh straw, feeding them nutritious oats, and reading aloud to them from Black Beauty every night. They also strengthen and expand the equestrian community, teaching students of all ages and experience levels riding techniques and horse-care fundamentals during lessons and camps. These sessions focus on dressage, hunt-seat, Western, and recreational styles, preparing riders for a fun trot through the woods or a career in competitive jumping. The trainers also conduct an innovative equine-assisted learning program that uses horse therapies and exercises to promote resilience and the development of life skills in children and adults recovering from trauma.
