Divers' clothing flaps in the wind as they soar toward a patchwork of meadows, with forests spreading out in all directions and mountains looming on the horizon. Sometimes, as the wind rushes past their ears, they can look out and glimpse seven volcanoes in the distance. But before these jumps, Skydive! Toledo's instructors impart the necessary safety measures, touching on how to ensure a parachute has been maintained, how to land, and how to use a guidebook to ask birds for directions. After briefing visitors on the basics, expert jumpers help them learn the physics firsthand on tandem jumps and accelerated free-fall plunges from small Cessna aircraft. They also train first-time skydivers through the static-line program—a former military exercise now used to train sports parachutists toward licenses. From the strut of a single-engine Cessna plane, at an altitude of 3,000 feet, a student leaps into the air and falls for up to three seconds before a static line attached to the plane deploys a parachute and takes the guesswork out of pulling the ripcord.
Offering inventive classes for men and women, the studio's philosophy of "Pilates at Play" combines the strengthening value of levity in exercise with the immeasurable benefit of uninhibited playtime. Depending on your playing preference and/or gender, you can mix and match your choice of three fun-infused fitness classes. The Pilates mat class guides students through the fundamentals of Pilates with the use of weights, balls, bands, and more. A seasoned instructor also employs the use of leg and arm springs for maximum mind-body melding. The 50-minute class is open to students of all skill levels, from experienced callisthenic crackerjacks, to klutzes with a surplus of left feet. Femininely focused, the chair-dance class introduces a sultry routine designed to strengthen the bodies and minds of ladies 18 and older. Similarly, the pole-lates class breaks down pole dancing from a Pilates perspective and introduces a cardio routine that ladies 18 and older can take to firefighting college. Both classes run 50 minutes.
Imagine a lifestyle in which you park a Ferrari at a private boat slip, slide onto a custom yacht, and ferry it across a waterway to a private island hosting a 20-room mansion modeled after an Italian villa.
