Title Boxing Club began as a cocktail of talents mixed together: the fighting prowess of former professional boxer Danny Campbell, the acumen of businessman Tom Lyons, and the top-of-the-line gear provided by owners David Hanson and Tony Carbajo. Hanson and Carbajo provided the gym’s equipment and outfitted the first location with an onsite pro shop. Campbell put together two signature Power Hour workouts, one based on boxing and the other on kickboxing. Lyons took care of the franchising, and the club has since spread all over the nation.

Trainers help members burn calories through a flurry of jabs, hooks, and crosses. Classes pound away at a sea of heavy bags while also working with speed bags, the double-end bag, and free weights. When the workout's over, members can head to the pro-shop area, where padded cage walls neatly separate the goods from the rest of the gym and provide an excellent place to duke it out over whose T-shirt looks better.

At Kosama, instructors adhere to an uncommon workout philosophy known as muscle confusion. Though the name seems counterintuitive, fitness gurus argue that muscles need variety in order to consistently develop. So, to engage the maximum number of muscles in as many directions as possible, Kosama's trainers blend cardio and strength-training exercises. At the heart of this drive to maximize workouts is the instructors' dedication to individual goals. Whether clients want to lose weight or get in shape for a Mars invasion, trainers provide individual assessments, suggested workout regimens, and heart-rate monitors. The monitors help patrons gauge their effort and back off or scale up accordingly. When workouts conclude, the monitors yield digital analytics that summarize performance. To complement workouts, clients can access online nutrition tools with meal-planning tips.

If you walk into Air FX Trampoline Park and see dozens of children literally bouncing off the walls, don't be alarmed—that's just because much of the 12,000-square foot facility is covered in trampolines. Guests can defy gravity while playing basketball, dodge ball, and performing the coordinated exercises of high-energy AIRobics fitness classes.

Upon returning to earth, you can catch your breath while putting across the well-lit, outdoor 18-hole miniature golf course. Or, you can keep the adrenaline pumping with a few rounds of Lazer Frenzy, where mirrors, haze, and webs of laser beams make you feel like you're in a movie or finally allowed in the secret party room at grandma's house.

Each hands-on exhibit at the nonprofit Science Center is rooted in the STEM system, an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Here, visitors aged 2 and older can control intricate pulley systems, learn about the complexity of DNA strands, and even discover the science behind optical illusions. For younger guests, the center houses plenty of Legos to assemble into original structures, as well as a prehistoric tunnel to explore. Monthly events further stimulate curiosity about the sciences, and a forthcoming maker space will include tools and equipment for activities such as robotics and metalworking.
