Countless trees fly by under your feet as you soar hundreds of feet above the ground. Suddenly, the forest floor below opens up into a gorge. At Red River Gorge Zipline, riders witness this incredible sight on regular canopy tours set amid the picturesque wilderness of Daniel Boone National Forest. The system's ziplines span more than 4,000 feet above the forest canopy, with the longest reaching about 1,900 feet in length. At the end of the tour, dual racing ziplines send riders charging down from more than 200 feet above the ground, and reaching speeds exceeding 50 mph. All of Red River Gorge Zipline's guests are strapped into harnesses for the duration of their tours, while helmet cams document their adventure.
After Emile Bouari lost 40 pounds, he was inspired to found Bouari Clinic and help others achieve the same results. Today, the clinic's several locations have assisted over 30,000 people in achieving their weight-loss goals with FDA-registered supplements and prescriptions. Bouari, along with a coalition of medical directors who oversee individual clinics, lends a supportive helping hand to clients without resorting to intense exercise regimes or fad diets consisting of celery-scented mist.
In 1933, the founders of Keswick Cycle opened their doors with a common goal in mind: to make each visitor feel like a part of the family. Almost 80 years later, a staff of avid cyclists and triathletes maintains the same friendly vibe at all three locations, meanwhile stocking an assortment of bikes and accessories. Bicycles from Cannondale, Specialized, Electra, and other big brands conquer myriad terrains, from roads and triathlon courses to mountain trails mucky with discarded cooking oil. Tires, apparel, and other accessories round out the inventory, situated around the shop's central hub, the services department. Here, factory-trained mechanics tune up or overhaul any type of bike or shopping carts masquerading as bikes. These same experts fit athletes for competition at the triathlon studio and, in their spare time, lend a hand to local charities.

Koko FitClub’s digital gym rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 45-minute or less custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial assessment determines fitness level and baseline measurements, which Koko team members use to design a bespoke workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.

Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
