The instructors at Bros Boards teach clients of all ages how to standup-paddleboard (SUP) on any body of water at least 12 inches deep, from flat and open waters to Class II to V whitewater rivers. Once riders feel comfortable enough to venture out on their own, Bros Boards' team rents boards at both their headquarters and through partner locations. Additionally, a sales team supplies SUP enthusiasts with low-maintenance models from Body Glove and Imagine Surf, such as the Wave paddleboard made of indestructible, scratch-and-sniff plastics.
While most people know how to breathe, very few can do so underwater without the proper equipment and training. In Too Deep Scuba’s open-water PADI certification courses provide just that, pairing classroom instruction with swimming-pool practice dives in which participants don full scuba gear. Students can plunge deeper into the world of aquatic exploration by pursuing other certifications, earning a new status as a rescue diver, master scuba diver, or ship’s mermaid figurehead. In Too Deep Scuba’s team also schedules trips where divers can hone their skills in exotic waters, such as Florida’s Crystal River and Bonne Terre Mine. Before excursions, divers can stock up on an array of gear from Pinnacle Aquatics, Cressi-sub, Ocean Reef, and other outfitters.
The Florence Freedom, a professional team of baseballers in the Independent Frontier League, re-create the classic thrill of America’s third-most popular sport, after skeet shooting and spelunking, without all the food fights and explosive bat malfunctions that are all too common at major-league games. With today’s deal, fans get reserved-seat tickets for any home game (a $10 value) all month and enjoy a true gourmet meal consisting of a hot dog, chips, and a drink (a $7 value). Miniature novelty adults, meanwhile, can burn off excess energy with a pass to the KidsZone (a $5 value)—a multicolored playground set complete with a bounce house and other playsets—or spend five Freedom Bucks (a $5 value) as they see fit at the park's concession stands or gift shop, making it far more valuable currency than the one you created by taping your driver's license photo to old Monopoly money.
The Five Seasons Family Sports Club houses tennis courts, a dining area, fitness facilities, swimming pools, and a full-service spa under one roof. Within air-conditioned indoor courts or on outdoor clay courts, racquet slingers compete in friendly bouts to sharpen swings, refine backhands, and showcase grunting abilities. Members can also break a sweat in exercise areas speckled with modern cardio equipment and weights or cool off in an Olympic-sized pool with diving wells and wading areas. Before meeting others for a postgame beverage at the lively café, clients can wander to the spa for a relaxing massage or partake in a sports workshop to gain a firm grasp on game mechanics.
Established in 1996 as Ohio’s first certified Pilates studio, BodyMind Balance provides years of experience and knowledge for fitness-seeking students. BodyMind Balance’s mat classes are taught in Classical Pilates style and conducted with nothing but a polished wood floor, a mat, and a lot of super-motivating eye contact. Beginner and advanced classes are available several times a week in the airy studio. Pilates strengthens, lengthens, and shapes the body by utilizing ancient Jedi techniques without the need for expensive, hair-singeing lightsabers and humid training on swamp planets. It also relieves stress, de-slouches one's posture, and increases lung capacity so that you can stop avoiding long sentences when you speak. This Groupon is also valid toward Gyrotonic group classes.
