Philadelphia Rock Gyms challenges climbers of all skill levels with 2,000 square feet of climbing terrain, 1,500 square feet of bouldering plains, and more than 30 top ropes. Initiates to the vertical sport can get the hang of climbing basics during the gym’s variety of lessons, which impart skills such as proper technique, safety, and the ability to tell which rocks open a supervillain's secret lair. The gym also features a variety of team-building opportunities and private room rentals, as well as a pro shop that outfits patrons with the proper climbing equipment available for rent or purchase.
Combining the best aspects of amusement parks and triathlons, The Golf Zone runs guests through a gauntlet of activities that promotes warm-hearted laughs and icy nerves of steel. Armed with a bucket of 75 balls ($8), golfers slay distant target posts at the driving range or put numbered clubs through the paces at the nearby short-game area. After practicing putts and postputt fist pumps, golfers can take to the roundabout greens of the miniature golf course ($6 per round for adults; $5 for children), where sharp turns and perilous slopes spell doom for all but the craftiest balls. Three paintball fields host large brigades or lone soldiers as they blast enemies with colorful projectiles during two-hour firefights ($25 including gear), providing shelter in the form of wooden forts and a replica of the Maginot Line. Challenge land-speed records at the nearby Speed Zone, where the Python go-kart track tests drivers with harrowing twists and sneaky speed bumps that take indiscriminate bites out of single and tandem karts ($7 per race).
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Vertical Extreme, home to one of the highest climbing walls in Pennsylvania, houses numerous faux cliff faces inside a 7,500-square-foot facility. Clients can surmount challenging overhangs, grip hand holes, and pinch mountain cheeks as they scour 3,000 feet of bouldering and walls as high as 45 feet. The facility's small-scale walls enable climbers as young as 2.5 years old to partake in the fun, and scale sessions foster fun times for climbers 80 years old or wiser.
Licensed acupuncturist Margaret Celli has always believed in her methodology, but it wasn’t until she underwent treatments for chronic back pain that she witnessed acupuncture’s rapid ability to heal. Within three treatments, low backaches that had plagued her for three years were gone. Now, Celli combines her acupuncture expertise with a certification in oriental medicine to help her clients walk similar paths of healing. Like Socrates during a midlife crisis, her treatments combine ancient and cutting-edge philosophies to treat individual health concerns. In addition to acupuncture, Celli administers relaxing and structural massages, as well as energy therapies including reiki and chakra repair.
Striving to instruct students not only in the martial arts, but also in valuable life lessons—such as discipline, respect, and focus—the instructors of Master Coleman's Lion Force Martial Arts welcome pupils as young as 4 years old to their classes.
