At The Grid Code, an 11,000-square-foot arena lays the field for bouts of recreational trigger pulling. The indoor NERF arena shelters players from the elements as they duck behind tires, wooden structures, and poles to elevate these Hasbro instruments, which expel soft foam ammo, to a truly competitive degree. The Grid Code rents out all necessary safety gear, masks, and supernatural force fields, and can organize spaces to accommodate parties and corporate teambuilding.

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

We offer a variety of different yoga styles, one to suit everyone. We also offer Pilates and additional workshops to enhance their yoga experience.

What special training do you or your staff have?

All are certified with 200 hours [through] Yoga Alliance. [I am] a 500-hour certified E-RYT (Experience Registered Yoga Teacher) and a yoga therapist.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The studio is beautiful and unique as it has a nature theme. It comes complete with a waterfall. It is like a spa experience, but [you're] doing yoga.

In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym program that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers 4 months to 12 years old with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities. Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents magazine.

It's said that music builds neurological pathways in the brain like no other experience. The co-owners of Sing N Move, Miss April and Miss Lena, facilitate this firsthand every day during their Kindermusik classes, which help boost brain function through musical exploration.

Kids not only stretch their creative muscles, but also their actual muscles—the classes challenge fine motor skills by encouraging tots to play instruments and bop along to the beat. Miss April and Miss Lena have even taken their own children to Kindermusik classes and have seen them blossom there, which is why they opened their studio in the first place.
