The Harbison Community Association provides a venue for community members to work out and form bonds with their neighbors. The center maintains an indoor heated pool, a jacuzzi, and a baby pool. Members can build strength in the weight room and challenge their friends to a game on the racquetball court.
At The CPR ASAP Center, students of all ages and backgrounds learn life-saving skills from certified instructors. Two-hour CPR, AED, and first aid certification courses, which utilize hands-on practice on lifelike mannequins, teach students how to perform CPR and use a defibrillator, as well as offer instruction in blood-borne illnesses to help students prevent the spread of illnesses.
The center certifies students through the American Heart Association and American Life Training Institute. A special babysitters' course teaches pupils as young as 12 how to perform basic first aid, deal with a fire, and successfully convince the kids the TV has broken once it's time for bed.
Strength is both a physical quality and a state of mind at Athlete's Arena. Here, NSCA-certified personal trainers, strength and conditioning specialists, and weightlifting coaches propel athletes of all levels toward fitness goals using intense workouts and constant motivation. In addition to teaching drills that boost speed, agility, and joint mobility, trainers lead functional training sessions that sculpt and strengthen the entire body with tools such as kettlebells and weighted sleds. Inspired by Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics, CrossFit sessions teem with barbell drills such as power cleans and functional bodyweight exercises such as pull-ups and burpees. Cardio challenges such as rowing round out these workouts, strengthening hearts and lungs while shaving away calories and moustaches made of string cheese.
On the tarmac at Fairfield County Airport, S & S Aviation's fleet of planes spins up its propellers. The fraternal twins—the Cessna 172P and 172K—set their nose cones revolving, and the Piper Arrow primes its touchscreen GPS unit. By operating under airspace unclogged by other fliers, S & S Aviation bypasses the limitations of sharing the skies and gets its students directly into piloting their own aircrafts.
