Sports Authority's ski and snowboard rejuvenations mend mountainside wear and tear to help improve performance during gravity-fueled sojourns. Stonegrinding sessions score underside surfaces with striations, cutting down on suction and allowing the precise directional control needed for conquering moguls, slaloms, and decorative rosettes on slope-sized birthday cakes. P-Tex candles provide restorative wax drips across battered board bottoms, filling in gashes and gouges created by errant roots, protruding rocks, and bites from board-eating snow leopards.
Slow and steady wins the race—a good tip for both tortoises competing in races and humans looking to stay healthy while exercising. Instead of seeing how many reps their clients can complete in a session, always egging them on to do more even faster, the trainers at Enlightened Exercise use the SuperSlow technique. Exercisers spend 10 seconds lifting the weight and another 10 seconds lowering it. In addition to making the muscles work longer, the 20-second rep also allows exercisers to focus on proper lifting form, resulting in fewer injuries and more bodybuilding poses. The slow-motion workouts—which take place in a private, distraction-free fitness studio—only need to be performed once or twice per week for 30 minutes.
The rumbling of thunder and flashes of lightning normally mean soaked and dejected sports players, but The Edge Sports Center keeps balls soaring through the air regardless of the weather outside. This is thanks to the center’s indoor field, which sets the stage for athletes hurtling footballs through the air or honing the fancy footwork needed to waltz with a soccer ball. The roster of classes expands beyond these sports and into speed and strength training to prepare youths planning to track down the yeti. Groups can rent the field for rainout-proof trainings or games, and the center also hosts birthday parties complete with pizza and cake.
Husband-and-wife duo George and Sydney Fisch founded The Scuba Connection in 1996, later adding two very special instructors to their facility’s staff: their sons. Brothers Wayne and Jason Fisch helm the five-star PADI Instructor Development Center, where they guide aspiring dive teachers, as well as hobbyists, through all levels of scuba instruction. To further bulk up their school’s curriculum, the Fisches teach a handful of highly specialized courses that explore unique underwater interests, such as videography, wreck diving, and whale-call translation techniques. Technical class offerings include trimix and rebreathers.
