Opened in 1998, Floyd Hall Arena welcomes skaters of all sizes to practice their axels and slap shots on two NHL-sized ice rinks. In addition to youth hockey and Learn to Skate programs with professional instructors, the rink hosts public skating sessions each week so that casual skaters can loop the rink as their leisure and more advanced skaters can test out prototypes of hand skates. Patrons can take a look at upcoming public skating times by checking the monthly event schedule, found here.
Spend an entire afternoon crawling on your belly over rocks and dashing between bunkers with the whiz of paint-filled capsules humming past your ears. Then open fire and decimate enemies, friends, or co-workers in a splatter of color. New Breed Paintball has more than six fields stocked with old tires, barrels, heaps of logs, and wall remnants that challenge fleet feet, sharp eyes, and trigger fingers to work together. A castle field allows paint-slingers to study the forces of wind-resistance and splatter from a tall turret and within weathered, loggy walls. Click here to see photos of fields and paintballers in action. Be sure to dress appropriately: the paint washes out of clothing, but you're going to get really dirty, no matter how gifted a sharpshooter you may be.
The nine outdoor paintball fields at Battle Creek Outdoor Paintball Fields turn players’ adventure fantasies into reality. Each has its own terrain, obstacles, and atmosphere to transport competitors into new worlds. In James Town, players can duck into the remains of abandoned buildings to take cover from incoming paint pellets like Jesse James once did, and they can climb the Junkyard's towers of tires or perch atop large spools to take aim at approaching opponents. Players must decide whether to be good or evil in The Fortress, either defending the fortress-like structure’s honor or attempting to conquer it and vanquish their opponents. Fantastic narratives aside, those seeking regulation-style play can face off in The Woods and Speedball fields.
The professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio North Jersey, a chain of dance schools that was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherd students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and foxtrot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to sashay in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur fire walking.
Per the fitness center’s name, the trainers at One Human Performance eschew a one-size-fits-all approach, focusing instead on one human at a time. They begin each program with a comprehensive evaluation of movement, performance and strength. From there, they draw up the blueprints for client-specific training.
The gym also knows that no person is an island. To fill client’s motivational coffers with encouragement from peers, trainers lead group workouts. The classes focus on fitness disciplines such as kettlebell training, spinning, and bootcamp that tones the whole body more effectively than jogging while juggling medicine balls.
The staff at Sun Tao Studio embrace holistic healing methods to enhance their clients' overall health. Focusing on physiques, the certified yoga instructors lead classes for all levels, including one-on-one sessions that help introduce beginners to basic postures. They also enhance multilevel hot-yoga classes by cranking the thermostat up to 90 degrees, which can help spur detoxification and boost flexibility. Before sessions, students may roam across the hardwood floors and peruse the selection of yoga mats, or gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows to watch nearby oaks diligently practice tree pose. In addition to yoga, the staff also offers natural healing services including acupuncture sessions and a specialized posture class.
