Fit Boot Camp's team of certified trainers and CrossFit coaches lead students through motivational fitness adventures featured in New Jersey Life. Each 45-minute workout incorporates plenty of personal attention and modifiable exercises to prepare the body for everyday physical challenges such as hoisting groceries and moving the refrigerator from room to room. Bucking traditional gym exercises, engaging workouts such as tire dragging, tire flipping, rope climbing, and sledgehammer swinging help shed weight, tone arms, tighten torsos, and strengthen sinews. Plyometrics such as box jumps cultivate power and speed, saving people the hassle of having to simulate those qualities with foam barbells and strobe lights.
During the past 25 years, Brian and Jenny Nash have taught all sorts of people to dance. They've coached members of the New Jersey Philharmonic Orchestra for fundraising balls and helmed the Rutgers University collegiate dance program. At Nash Dancenter, they guide students through the simple sway of foxtrot and the trumpet-backed scintillation of salsa. A team of instructors aids them, drawing upon experience in national competitions and a love of the famous dance scene in Jaws. The studio in which they teach is an airy, 8,000-square-foot ballroom with french doors, sweeping window arches, and glistening chandeliers. During dance socials, guests look into the impressive chamber from a balcony, watching twirls and tango steps below.
Professional Fencing Coach and Master Slava Danilov, as well as his lieutenant, Samir Machmoud, combine to bring more than 60 years of international fencing experience to Morris Fencing Club. Their collective expertise includes a bronze medal in the 1996 World Cup and an Egyptian national championship, plus coaching accolades that include leading their students to multiple World Junior Championship medals. Despite this imposing body of work, the duo also specializes in teaching fencing to beginners through their club programs, such as group lessons, private instruction, and camps. Regardless of prior experience, whether an Olympic-level epee swordsman or a person whose closest activity to fencing is making shish kabobs, students can comfortably enroll at Morris Fencing Club to build character and stamina through participation in the fun and active sport.
While you might have to worry about what lurks behind every corner at Haunted Scarehouse, there is one thing you won't have to worry about: an umbrella. That's because all of the gobblins, ghosts, and ghouls in the House of Nightmares and The Attic live indoors. So no matter what the weather, thrill-seekers can stay dry and warm as they carefully make their way past dark corners and ghostly visages spread across two fright-filled floors. The house is known for its especially terrifying denizens, so staff recommend it for children ages 8 and older or those who are descended from ghosts.

Since 1959, the reigns that urge Circle Lanes forward have been handed down through three generations. While the establishment still cultivates the now-retro vibe that characterized its early years, it's also outfitted with modern accoutrements including AMF automatic scoring and regular laser-bowl sessions that set brightly colored accents aglow. The facility features 34 Heddon synthetic lanes, which beckon sure-footed bowlers and discerning woodchucks alike with wood approaches. Bumpers are also available for those who can't yet roll between the lines. Beyond the lanes, Circle Pizzeria stands ready to serve a menu that sates appetites at all hours. Breakfast food such as muffins, omelets, and egg sandwiches gives way midday to a selection that includes roast-beef club sandwiches and pizzas topped with meatballs. Nearby, fellow patrons sit at Cabaret Lounge's wooden bar to sip beer, wine, or mixed drinks. Dartboards, a pool table, and a big-screen television offer additional diversions, ideal for distracting opponents while filling the finger holes on their bowling balls with mustard.
