Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
This community-focused, flow-based yoga center boasts a plethora of calming to rigorously bendy sessions steeped in the mind-body-spirit trifecta. All fitness levels are welcome, from those only familiar with the sedentary couch pose to those fluent in back-bending crane-warrior stances. Fledgling flexibles can ease into beginners yoga, focusing on fundamental moves and proper alignment, and those with a foundation of supple stretchiness can nonviolently tackle Vinyasa Two, a session concentrated on more vigorous movement linked with sun salutations and hat doffs to the moon. Both the Reston and Great Falls locations offer a variety of classes and class times for pliable aspirants and their limberness-seeking limbs.

Understanding that eyes are delicate organs, Dr. Michael Khalil emphasizes the value of trust between optometrist and patient. He earns this trust with his nearly four decades of experience, which includes certifications in laser-correction consultation and the treatment of certain eye diseases. His real passion, however, is pairing “hard-to-fit” patients with contacts that more easily accommodate thin corneas or glowing triangular pupils. In addition to assessing visual acuity and testing for cataracts, glaucoma, and other issues, Dr. Khalil stocks his shelves with fashionable frames from top-name designers, such as Prada, Gucci, and Hugo Boss.
At Potomac Paddlesports, the first professional kayak school to be endorsed by the American Canoe Association, the team of American Canoe Association– and British Canoe Union–certified instructors patiently lead students through a methodical progression of flat-water paddling skills. The classes cover a variety of watersports, including whitewater rafting, river and sea kayaking, and standup paddling. The small-group classes are designed to keep students engaged, and longer trips down the Potomac challenge their skills with powerful rapids surrounded by lush scenery, interspersed with rare glimpses of bears putting on their bear suits. Outside of class, students can bond with fellow paddlers during weekly sushi meals and occasional movie nights. Further demonstrating their dedication to bodies of water, Potomac Paddlesports works to preserve the nation’s rivers, estuaries, and oceans, sharing this passion with its members through advocacy and donations to conservation programs.
Komodo dragons, quicksand, and headhunter’s darts are just some of the dangers that lurk in the jungle depths of the Perils of the Lost Jungle miniature golf course at Woody’s Golf Range, whose innovative attractions caught the eye of The Washington Post and earned it a place in Newsweek Magazine’s recommended mini-golf courses in 2005. Harder hitting clubs hone their swings at the driving range. Golfers can spend their time there digging up divots in Patriot-Bermuda-grass hitting stations or sending balls whistling over AstroTurf mats. The range’s heated, lighted, and covered stalls let players practice year-round. Along with separate practice areas for pitching and chipping, a sand trap invites golfers to practice the best way to get out of a bad lie—by digging an escape tunnel. Guests can trade in their clubs for bats at four softball cages and five baseball cages, and themed picnic areas enable groups to turn their visit into a day-long extravaganza.
