Boating across open water is exhilarating, but boat ownership and maintenance can be tiresome. Members of Freedom Boat Club, however, can experience all the fun of boating with none of the headaches. They get access to more than 800 water vessels at 80 seashores and lakeshores across the nation, from which they can cast off without worrying about chores such as refueling or spraying the deck with pirate repellent. Even first-time boaters can take to the water with confidence, thanks to on-the-water training from seasoned mariners.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Sun-starved hides can jump-start their glows with a Mystic spray tan. Employing MagneTan technology, Mystic’s mist adheres to skin suits evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, leaving it bronzed and beautiful for five to seven days. Complement sunny hues with a 20-minute session atop the Hydro-Massage bed, which applies heat and water pressure to vital pressure points in order to rejuvenate tired muscles and relieve stress. Smooth bumpy terrain and trim your silhouette with a relaxing spin in the SlimCapsule, designed to burn up to 500 calories in a single 30-minute session using the dry heat generated by LED technology. A sweltering experience superior to sauna sessions or afternoons on a desert moon, the slimming treatment pampers clients with a vibratory massage, aromatherapy, ionized air, and a cooling fan.
Safari Mini Golf & Games curates friendly competition with more than two acres of tropical parkland that encompasses a 36-hole miniature golf course and four batting cages. Vibrant palms, streams, and waterfalls line the miniature golf course, creating a safari-like habitat for life-size statues of elephants, monkeys, and other exotic creatures along the way. The piercing timbre of sharp line-drives resonates from four batting cages, where cyborg pitchers contemplate charging the plate as they paint the strike zone with high-arcing softballs and baseballs hurled at speeds between 35 and 60 mph. Competitive appetites can find relief in the arcade, where guests seek out goals on the foosball pitch, square off in the digital realm of video games, or display their dominion over sugar by vanquishing scoops of Blue Bell ice cream.
The escaped inmates’ hearts pump hard in their chests as they zig and zag through a forest, evading the grasp of a guard in hot pursuit. Scuttling up the mud-lined slope of a hill, the fugitives holler with frustration as the guard closes in on them, ripping a flag off their belts before retreating back into the trees. Though this adrenaline-filled scene could be from a blockbuster film, it’s a common sight at the many Fugitive 3 Mile Escape Runs held across the country.
Before taking off in their race heat, runners of all ages, dubbed inmates, slip into flag belts festooned with three flags. They leap, roll, crawl, and do-si-do across the course toward their freedom, seeking out the elusive finish line while avoiding the flag-grabbing hands of the race’s resident guards. Water and aid stations throughout the course ensure that inmates remain hydrated and safe, and supportive loved ones can hand nail-file-filled cakes to their favorite inmate from the spectator section. Once safely on the other side of the race, participants revel in their accomplishment at the freedom celebration, where live music, food, and drinks bolster the festive post-run atmosphere.
Longevity Lady Fitness and Spa's instructors create a judgement-free zone where women of all ages and fitness levels can pursue a healthier lifestyle. Of course, they don't expect gym members to make such a journey on their own; they offer 60 group fitness classes each week to help. They cover everything from classic step aerobics and weight training to yoga, Zumba, and even senior fitness classes. After sweating it out in a class or hitting the 1,200-square-foot weight floor, they invite their visitors to relax in the Longevity Oasis, which includes a whirlpool tub, a sauna, and eucalyptus steam room with proper koala defenses installed.
