Crooked River Adventures’ river adventures are leisurely, no-experience-required pleasure cruises that challenge the muscles while massaging the mind’s shimmering-blue waterscape dreams. Glide past verdant foliage, through glittering reflections of aged bridges, and into great blue herons’ great blue neighborhoods while the sun warms your skin, the wind blows through your hair, and your hair blows through your hat. All the while, you’ll be learning the proper strokes that propel floatmobiles to ultrafun, and you’ll begin to gain functional understanding of the strength of a body in fluid, powerful motion. Crooked River Adventures operates in conjunction with Kent State University Recreational Services’ Adventure Center, which has received statewide recognition for its boating program and outstanding handshakes from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Watercraft.
CrossFit is often billed as functional fitness, something that prepares you physically for any of the various and sundry physical challenges that life may present. Rampant CrossFit's coaches take that philosophy and personalize it by getting to know each gym member and their fitness goals. Then, they help those members work toward those accomplishments, preparing them to take on the physical tasks that their own, unique lives demand.

Asian Sun Tanning Studio beach-seasons the skin of winter-weary Akronites with a variety of stand-up and lie-down tanning equipment, including a system that blends UVA and UVB light to create a personalized tanning threshold that helps to prevent sunburn. The Sun Angel bed's smart sensors calculate a UV spectrum based on how much exposure your body can safely absorb on that particular day before it bursts into a cloud of confetti, and the exposure is never more powerful than natural sunlight. Celestial choirs of humming body lamps revive ghostly pallors to radiant sepia tones while four facial tanners protect countenances from demonic redness. Throughout each session, you'll sink into the combined headrest, armrests, and variable footrests of the Multi Relax base acrylic and bask in temperature-controlled air-conditioning. Aqua Fresh Aroma spritzers treat the nose to a carefree beach party all its own, while the Sun Angel's 3D sound-system tickles eardrums with the choicest tunes.

Other benefits of the classes include increased flexibility and knowledge of self-defense techniques.
