Bats cut through the air on a perfected path and fastballs slap into mitts every day in Arizona World of Baseball’s 20,000-square-foot facility. Each instructor boasts a hardball pedigree that includes play at the professional or collegiate level, and creates a supportive atmosphere for beginning-to-advanced sluggers by fostering greater confidence, smoother form, and a more-focused mindset. The 30-minute private lesson scrutinize students' mechanics, including their balance, hand path, eye contact, and ability to intimidate pitchers with their memorization of the multiplication table. Afterwards, players receive a set of specific drills to practice at home in the living room or during their 15 minutes in the batting cages. Eight machines hurl tosses at various speeds set to as slow as 40 miles per hour to as fast as 85 miles per hour.
At Jambo! Park's two locations, children uncork bottled up energy as they spring across an indoor playground sprawling with jungle-themed rides, family-friendly games, and towering play structures. The fun factory's Phoenix locale manufactures raucous laughter and endless enjoyment with myriad attractions, including the Safari Train, a circle of spinning swings, and high-flying rides atop gravity-defying elephants. Families can settle disputes over who's the favorite child in a pirate-themed laser-tag arena or club their way through the greens of a mini-golf course. The Mesa location supports the same brand of excitement with a lineup of attractions illuminated by a brightly lit carousel. Miniature pilots control their altitude as they circle around the Jets Abouts ride, and responsible drivers exchange car-insurance information after collisions on the bumper-car track. A three-level play structure festooned with tubes and slides welcomes climbers and sliders, and more than 90 nonviolent video games jangle merrily in the arcade. Adults can wile away the time in the Lion's Den, which is furnished with plasma televisions, pool tables, and foosball tables.

ProTenn International founder Alex Ramirez leads a highly decorated staff to provide a focused and personalized instructional environment where students can learn to play their best tennis. Since 1988, Alex and his team have developed a number of sectional, national, and international champions, including tour professionals Camila Giorgi and Liga Dekmeijere. Their coaches employ a results-oriented methodology that combines footwork, physical fitness, mental strategy, and competitive spirit.
Prior to each practice session, coach and pupil identify an objective for their time together, be it smoother groundstrokes or more choreographed victory dances. The two will then work to develop a workable plan of action that aims to help students achieve their desired results. Though instructors impart a number of tips and tricks for improvement, nothing replaces the tried-and-true methods of hard work and repetition, which locks ideal movements into muscle memory.

As a 23-year-old junior, Tom Hatten didn’t spend his evenings at the raucous parties or ice-cream socials associated with college life. Instead, he’d spend the waning hours of his evenings waiting by the dryer for the last batch of towels before collapsing into bed. In the morning, he would lug them to Mountainside Fitness, the gym he opened as a student that he has thrown all his energy into maintaining ever since.
Today, the humble 4,800-square-foot space has bloomed into nine gyms that average a sweeping 41,000 square feet. Tom’s vision of creating a friendly neighborhood gym that greets each guest with a warm towel underscores every decision he makes for the different locations, from the colorful kid-care spaces to the entertaining group fitness classes. Personal trainers plan regimens tailored to each client, helping them lose weight, build muscle, or target the muscles that will help build a better golf game. Clients can create their own routines with the help of cardio and weight machines, or explore the different amenities at each location, such as saunas, rock-climbing walls, and indoor basketball courts.
