The multifaceted fitness facility Bodies in Motion keeps every family member active with its fitness programs, martial arts classes, and children’s activities. With Open Motion sessions, kids zip down the racing wave slide, tackle a high-ropes course, or dart around outstretched hands during refereed games of Capture the Flag. Toddlers build cognitive abilities and skills in group music classes, and Strong Totz programs teach kids how various sports work. For example, on week one, kids might learn to be soccer players, and on week two, they might learn how to negotiate a multimillion-dollar sports contract.

While kids play, parents blast calories during classes such as aerobic kickboxing and extreme conditioning or cement their trust on high-ropes courses for couples. Parents and kids refuel after a hard day of motion at the onsite Sandella's Flatbread Café, which staves off hunger pangs with healthy food, including quesadillas, paninis, and wraps that are just the right weight to fool any gods looking to take firstborn children.

In 1971, Michael Sowers taught himself how to throw clay in a high-school art class. The classroom had a functioning pottery wheel, but the instructor didn't know how to use it, so Michael began checking out instructional books from the library to support his fledgling interest.

Ever since, he's been molding masses of clay into plates and vessels, preserving their shapes with the heat of a 2,350-degree kiln. His work is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing—subtly hued french butter dishes hold a quarter pound of butter in water, keeping it fresh for up to a month, and grater plates come equipped with a built-in shredder for garlic, ginger, parmesan cheese, or CIA documents. Sowers seals each piece with a lead-free glaze used by potters since the time of the Ming dynasty, ensuring that customers can safely send his pottery through a dishwasher or heat them in a microwave or oven.
