When the lights go down on Revo Soccer's stretch of realistic indoor turf, glow soccer transports the game into an otherworldly dimension decorated in swooshes of invisible paint that pop under blacklights and a twilit cityscape that appears on one wall. In the darkened arena, players decked out with glowing T-shirts, glow sticks, and face paint imitate their favorite bioluminescent athletes as they send an eerie orb careening around the field. During daylight hours, instructors help sharpen students' skills through weeklong camps, private lessons, and soccer academies. Twice a week, players can drop in to make friends or finally acquire an arch-nemesis during pickup games, or strengthen team bonds during league play.
At Revo Crossfit, resistance bands twang and barbells clatter as students of all ages engage in increasingly challenging weight, resistance, and cardio exercises to build muscle, burn fat, and boost flexibility. CrossFit followers hoist barbells and kettlebells, sprint, lunge, leap, and fireman-carry their way to health. The varied exercises help them focus on their body's overall performance rather than boring themselves with the repetitive motions of running on a treadmill or throwing every one of a child’s Frisbees onto a roof. The Spartan gym space surrounds athletes with black chain-link fence, stacks of tires, high ceilings, and battleship-grey walls, a tough image that encourages hard work.
South Florida Adult Sports’ exhilarating kickball leagues encourage grownups to relive the camaraderie and competitive spirit of playing in organized sports. Adults shed their typical workday dress shirts, suits, and cashmere typing gloves before getting their team uniforms messy with grass stains as they slide across home plate. Kickball players can join an already existing team, or get their buddies together to create a brand new team that they can name. Seasons typically include seven afternoon or night games, and conclude with a single-elimination tournament that crowns the kickball champions.
Gábor Pásztor has always loved sports, his passion and athleticism leading him to compete in international track-and-field meets on behalf of his home country, Hungary. Today, he brings his speed, endurance, and coordination skills to the United States to help a new generation of soccer and track-and-field stars hone their natural abilities at Citius Athletic Club Miami. At his club, he helms US Soccer Federation–registered soccer teams in competitive play against other local organizations. And he's serious about the sport: He holds practice with four different age groups of students—ranging ages 3–13—three times a week.
In addition to prepping youths for league play, he and his coaches lead fundamentals classes for beginning soccer players. The fundamentals classes cover the same skills and techniques as the competitive practices, but students aren't required to compete in games or maintain perfect pitch during the "National Anthem."
