The phosphorescent indoor landscape at Monster Mini Golf immerses putters in an eerie universe that inverts the sun-soaked cheer of conventional courses. Rimmed in glowing barriers, 18 holes lure swingers of all sizes to challenge their coordination and resolve in the face of winged monsters, scowling animated trees, a creepy clown, and their opponents' shockingly dazzling smiles. Sheltered from searing rain and howling wind, the indoor course enables play around hazards such as a spell well and luminous, ghostly windmill at any time of the year. An in-house radio station and DJ mask the sound of pounding hearts with lively beats and course commentary, and golfers looking for additional glory can win prizes by participating in regular contests or at the on-site arcade.
Nautilus Spearfishing prepares patrons to tackle new underwater frontiers with education in safe aquatic exploration. Beginners' freediving courses familiarize students with techniques necessary during breath-holding journeys into underwater ecosystems. Each introduction to freediving and safety course begins in a classroom setting as students discuss safety protocol, rescue procedures, and strategies to avoid offending a barracuda. When fully versed in breathing techniques and current shellfish slang, students don course-provided articles of aquatic formalwear to implement procedures in the pool session. Sessions include two to six students, allowing instructors to provide each diver with personal attention and thoughtful answers to questions asked via sonar.
At Revo Crossfit, resistance bands twang and barbells clatter as students of all ages engage in increasingly challenging weight, resistance, and cardio exercises to build muscle, burn fat, and boost flexibility. CrossFit followers hoist barbells and kettlebells, sprint, lunge, leap, and fireman-carry their way to health. The varied exercises help them focus on their body's overall performance rather than boring themselves with the repetitive motions of running on a treadmill or throwing every one of a child’s Frisbees onto a roof. The Spartan gym space surrounds athletes with black chain-link fence, stacks of tires, high ceilings, and battleship-grey walls, a tough image that encourages hard work.
Studio owner, mother of three, and passionate polecat, Annia Vazquez, encourages women to tap into their inner minx during pole-dancing and flirty-fitness classes. The studio takes pole dancing—once strictly a means of determining the next fire chief—and turns it into a full-body workout that incorporates core work, conditioning exercises, and sultry dance moves. Students can explore some of the other seductive arts during exotic belly-dancing lessons or courses that combine Vaudeville-style and modern burlesque. Classes keep comfortable with a maximum of 16 students, giving instructors enough time to dole out personalized tips to help newbies transform into veteran vixens.
