The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, like merats, locharoaches, and Nessie, who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beamed in the head by a well-aimed ball. Brush up your monster-vexing skills with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one hour of golf simulation at Beyond Golf Sports and Spirits in La Vista, a $35 value. Visitors will be able to play through 18 virtual holes during the allotted hour of simulation time. You can bring your own clubs, or use the ones provided by Beyond Golf. One Groupon may be used for every golfer in your group during the visit.
At Beyond Golf Sports and Spirits, visitors can participate in virtual tests of skill and precision without repeatedly driving balls through glass windows or the living-room television. Boasting some of the world’s finest high-definition golf simulators, Beyond Golf offers participants an opportunity to play top courses from around the globe with their own clubs, a set of rentals, or battleaxes. High-resolution imagery is utilized instead of computer-generated graphics to provide a hyper-realistic golfing experience that accurately recreates drives to within one yard. Give courses such as Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, and Pinehurst No. 2 a swing, while riddling the cyber-fairways with virtual divots. Beyond Golf also offers drink specials, making the facility an excellent activity for get-togethers, birthday parties, and Civil War reenactment group meetings.
Golf is one of the few sports a person can successfully play for a lifetime, and comes in handy for horror-movie auditions, weed whacking, and defending your home from a renegade windmill that can only be stopped by a properly timed ball that soars between the blades and lodges itself in the windmill's air intake hole. Hone practical sport and monster-battling skills with today’s Groupon to Beyond Golf Sports and Spirits. Call ahead to schedule a tee time.
During BounceU's parties, kids bound through inflatable play structures—and occasionally glow in the dark. At the center's Cosmic bounce parties, the main lights are replaced by special-effects lighting, which coaxes light from glow-in-the-dark accessories. The center's new location, in operation since May 2013, complements its shindigs with open-play sessions and more structured classes, appropriate for kids aged 2 and older.
Underwater World's Padi–certified staff helps gill-less humans to develop their sea legs through hands-on scuba instruction. The 90-minute, in-pool Discover Scuba Diving class caters to beginners. Before divers slip under the water's surface, an instructor imparts aquatic fundamentals, such as how to breathe through a regulator and make proper fish faces. Underwater World provides all the necessary gear for skillful submerging, including goggles and air tanks. Those who find themselves under the spell of the sea after the session can continue taking classes with Underwater World, eventually removing their flipper training wheels and exploring bodies of water without a dive-master chaperone.
Tired of the endless seas of cardio machines, impersonal client relations, and superfluous membership fees that often characterize commercial fitness centers, friends Aj, Chet, Patrick, and Celita took their common passion for athletics and opened their own private training studio: Warrior Fitness Center. Amid the studio's kettlebells, sleds, and sandbags, they lead a variety of fitness programs, including energetic Fit Camp classes and sports-specific training sessions. The coaches open their classes to students of all skill levels, from the expert athlete to the everyday working professional, who doesn't literally work every day, because there have been billions of them.
Anytime Fitness, as the name suggests, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and every day of the year with nonstop security. The open schedule ensures you have no excuses not to get in shape—unlike its competitor, Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska, location during solar eclipses.
The YMCA of Greater Omaha brings people together at 10 locations with character-building programs that strengthen participants' involvement in their community. Adults can get a head start on their New Year's fitness resolutions with body sculpting, Pilates, and other tummy-toning group fitness classes, while kids can expend some energy at a drop-in child-care center that is free while parents work out. YMCA members also enjoy reduced rates on swim lessons and youth sports, as well as free senior programs. All locations except the LaFern Williams Y offer indoor pools for aquatic antics that cannot be properly enjoyed in a bathtub's limited splashing-real estate.
