Versa Fit Studio's two locations blend old-fashioned support from personal trainers with newfangled technology, including the Vacu Fit, which, according to an ABC News report, exists nowhere else in the country. Classes and workouts incorporate the good vibrations of the Power Plate machine that quickens circulation, and Vacu Fit elliptical machines enclose lower halves in a heated vacuum chamber to trim away excess inches. Group exercise sessions bow to restrictive schedules with a range of classes that, unlike getting a tan from an Easy-Bake Oven, last only 30–60 minutes. In addition to high-tech courses, guests can drop in on traditional sessions such as core-toning Pilates, yoga, and boot camp, or they can burn calories in spin and dance aerobics that amp up heart health.

Tilt Studio's tenure as a family fun center dates back to 1972, a time when the menacing Pac-Man ghosts were still very much alive. Today, the 27,000 square-foot facility greets gamers with scores of arcade and ticket-redemption games plus spacious private-event rooms for corporate gatherings and birthday parties. Visitors receive a game card that works like a debit card, replacing cumbersome quarters that could otherwise be used to enter speed-drying competitions at the laundromat. In the arcade, up to four players can experience high-octane Formula One action, careening down a simulated Indy Motor Speedway, or land strikes on four lanes of virtual bowling, with backdrops depicting Rome, Japan, and Yosemite National Park.

Curves is a gym for women, but its fitness regimens aren't known for their femininity—they're known more for their efficacy. Since 1992, the fitness franchise has built its name on 30-minute workouts that burn hundreds of calories per session. At the same time, the workout's blend of strength training, cardio, and stretching tones every major muscle group and builds endurance, keeping the body from tiring easily mid-exercise.

Still, the gym's Cleveland Clinic-certified trainers know that one efficient workout may not be enough in some cases. As a result, they complement Curves' classic exercise style including circuit training with additional options, such as Latin dance-inspired Zumba classes. A comprehensive weight loss program, meanwhile, takes a multifaceted approach to weight loss, pairing workouts with meal plans and one-on-one coaching.

Grandmaster Dennis Tosten founded the first Amerikick in 1967 and has since taught several champion fighters, police officers, and everyday students karate and self-defense. Today, the lauded chain teaches fitness classes inspired by martial arts, including cardio kickboxing in six states. Each location upholds a curriculum that blends Chinese and Japanese martial-arts styles—including kenpo and tae kwon do—with modern self-defense strategies, further updating traditional practices by eschewing uniforms and belts for casual workout gear. Having attained certification in teaching kickboxing from the National Association of Professional Martial Artists, Amerikick's seasoned instructors also each possess black belts in karate, a rank as difficult to attain as the snake charmer's belt of live cobras.

A member of the exclusive Ron Jaworski Golf Signature portfolio, Valleybrook Country Club lives up to the legendary status of its namesake with Best of South Jersey awards in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2011, as determined by readers of the Courier-Post. The club's 18-hole course earns its accolades with tough but rewarding challenges, presenting a hybrid of flat and hilly terrain that keeps players mindful of elevation as they line up approaches or somersault down hillsides in pursuit of runaway balls. Complicating matters are tight fairways and water hazards that come into play at nine points throughout the round. While golfers deliberate over club choice, they can assuage their nerves with visions of steamed mussels, burgers, and pizzas awaiting them at Riley's Pub for post-round devouring.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,384 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 69.6 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 123 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole
