ActivEdge Fitness Club's large, two-story fitness temple burns calories with its high-tech cardio deck featuring mounted flat-screen TVs, drowns them in a 25-meter lap pool, and scares them off with the help of peers in more than 20 fitness classes. On the first level, members pump free-weights on a carpeted floor that cushions joint strain, or on a variety of machines designed to sculpt lats, glutes, and thighs. As parents make a splash in aqua aerobics, their kids can burn off excess energy and talk about their favorite characters from Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations in the supervised childcare center. Members can also make use of the club's basketball court and follow it up with a trip to the tanning room. For a high-intensity full-body-blasting boot camp, the gym’s own GTX program answers with an intense cross-training regimen. Instructors lead groups through a series of interval stations where clients build muscle definition and whip cardiovascular systems into shape with the help of punching bags and medicine balls laid out on turf and rubber floors. During those training sessions, guests lift and push giant tractor tires, swing heavy ropes, and hop high onto plyometric boxes—all exercises that incorporate functional movements to help people perform everyday tasks, such as hurling giant tractor tires into the air and lassoing them with heavy ropes.

It may sound clichéd, but ask the staff members at The Play Station about their most memorable experience, and they'll probably say a new one happens every day. Specifically, it's the moment when a child walks in, sees the three-level play center, and lets out a gasp of excitement. The 12,000-square-foot facility's tube slides, ball pits, and other recreational equipment blossomed from the owners' relatively simple idea: create a place where our kids can be active whenever it's yucky outside. Today, kids 12 and younger climb, crawl, and slide through the play center or hit the game room to win tickets redeemable for prizes such as toys and an all-inclusive weekend in Moon Vegas.

While kids expend their energy, parents can relax nearby and socialize, watch television, or enjoy a menu of snacks, such as mozzarella sticks, grilled cheese sandwiches, and nachos. The Play Station's crew includes a team that organizes children's parties and books the facility for field trips, fundraisers, and private rentals.

A family-owned paradise of 10-pin punishment since 1972, the friendly atmosphere at Lancer Lanes promotes spirited competition for alley cats of all ages and abilities. Prospective strike pilots strap on their slick slippers and take to the lanes, guiding spherical saucers towards pin-shaped invaders on 1 of 24 hardwood runways. Bumpers are on hand to level the playing corridor for pint-sized players, while automatic scoring keeps track of points gained, aiding both arithmophobics and those just scared of pencils. While winter ushers in nightly leagues at 6 p.m., buyers who nab today's deal can redeem their Groupon during any open bowling hours, including glow bowling on Friday and Saturday nights.

Meadowridge Golf Course's nine-hole par 3 course and expansive driving range appeal to club-wielding neophytes as well as veterans looking to improve their short game without getting blocked by an enormous clown mouth. Today's deal is valid for tee times for two at any time—though rates change after 10 a.m.—and includes a cart rental. Club swingers can also opt to visit Meadowridge's driving range and take advantage of 60 driving stations perched atop real grass and mats that gaze longingly onto the 320-yard expanse in front of them. Armed with a bucket of 100 balls, sphere-crushing patrons can bombard more than 25 targets, precisely place sand shots from the safety of a protected bunker, test putting skills on a four-degree, 24'x75' practice zone, and challenge other guests to golf-tee-juggling contests.

New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
