The exuberant energy of childhood led many youthful explorers to climb their first tree, but the staff of EarthJoy Tree Adventures turned it into a lifetime pursuit. During safety-conscious lessons, instructors combine the rope-assisted techniques of rock-climbing with a few tree-specific tricks honed over lots of practice. They scurry up the trunks of old, vibrant trees, swing, surf and hang amid the branches, and rappel down. They teach students how to bring gear up with them during a climb and string a hammock between branches. Such hammocks provide a restful retreat from the world below—even a place to pass the night as humanity’s ancient ape-like ancestors must have: nestled among the high bows of a tree, waiting for a flash of lightning so they could read a few more words in their book.

Led by Golf Range’s Top 50 Golf Instructor Ralph Landrum, World of Golf’s staff of game-improvement gurus help players lower their golf scores with an array of golf-related activities. Private lessons conducted inside a climate-controlled swing room allow students to launch golf balls out onto the range while four cameras capture bad habits such as flat takeaways or saying “um” too much during their follow-through. Afterward, players can use their instructor’s pointers to build muscle memory on the rest of the complex’s practice facilities, which include an outdoor range with 24 mat tees and two sets of grass tees, indoor hitting nets with eight stalls, and an indoor putting and chipping green.

As soon as golfers feel they’ve practiced enough, they put their newfound knowledge to the test on the executive 18-hole golf course, with 14 par 3s and four par 4s, or the miniature golf course. When weather renders either course unplayable, thwackers move indoors to the golf simulator, which recreates the look and feel of more than 50 courses or a hodgepodge of 18 famous holes but without the extremely long between-hole travel times. World of Golf keeps a busy schedule of lessons, classes, and leagues, all of which can be found on the calendar.

Golf Exchange's swing analysts help players lower handicaps by diagnosing mechanical inefficiencies and custom-fitting their equipment. Using state-of-the-art TrackMan technology, club fitters spend 45–60 minutes matching patrons with compatible clubs based on shaft type, grip type, and opinions regarding 1950s bebop. After obtaining new iron oars, the TrackMan system studies clubs in the act of swinging, identifying problematic approaches and fine-tuning club speed. Armed with heightened ball-whacking wisdom, golfers can use $75 toward the purchase of irons and $75 toward the purchase of drivers, allowing for precision swings through Ohio's snowcapped mountain ranges.

Though Kim Boardman was a flourishing musician who played in prestigious national orchestras, behind her tooting clarinet thumped the heart of a dancer. Kim spent 12 years of her childhood avidly studying dance at local studios and the respected Interlochen Arts Academy, but eventually put away her pointe shoes to pursue a career as a clarinetist. Unable to shake her passion for movement, however, Kim began taking dance classes as an adult, and earned certifications as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. Though she continued to teach a variety of fitness classes, she found the most happiness in teaching dance.

Today, she draws from her professional understanding of music and movement to teach classes through Cardio Dance Party, which has received praise from Cincy Chic. Here, she is joined by a staff of seasoned instructors and fellow dance aficionados, leading students of all abilities through high-intensity dance moves as popular music sets bodies in motion. Much like a rollercoaster operated by your childhood babysitter, her dance classes are designed to be fun rather than frustrating, dull, and repetitive.
