Situated on 63 acres of Mitchel Field—a former military base—Nassau Coliseum is dedicated to those who lost their lives while serving their country. When its doors opened four decades ago, this entertainment hub became a portal, transporting crowds to hours of sound and spectacle. Since then, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus has performed every year, racking up the record for most performances, followed closely by the Grateful Dead, which has permeated the air with its brand of jam 35 times, leaving audiences exhilarated and hankering for peanut butter and bread.

Reflecting the diverse scope and scale of science itself, the exhibits at the New York Hall of Science range from massive NASA rockets to holographic depictions of the infinitesimal atom. Originally built for the 1964 World's Fair to showcase technological advancements, the center has since transformed into an interactive museum and leading innovator in exhibit technology and educational programming that, since 1986, has seen more than 7 million visitors. Today, more than 450 interactive exhibits, along with 3D movies and live daily demonstrations, invite visitors of all ages to explore the world by watching living microbes thrive and evolve in a miniscule zoo, discovering the powerful mathematics hidden in everyday objects, and testing their understanding of physics in the science playground, along with the mini-golf course inspired by the cosmos. One of the featured programs, Design Lab, consists of five visually and thematically distinct activity areas that evoke a sense of childlike playfulness and imagination. The activities encourage visitors to be creative while experimenting with structures, circuits, and simple materials. The youngest visitors can also enjoy a developmentally-appropriate science education of their own in Preschool Place.

"Tough, but doable." That's how ACE- and AFAA-certified trainer Tara Faye described her teaching style to GoRecess Playground in July 2012, nearly two months after becoming the sole owner of PNT Fitness. There, she and her staff lead high intensity and high energy classes such as Insane Kickbox Camp, Sweat Shop, and A Vicious Cycle, which uses Schwinn stationary bikes. For more communal workouts, they also host a monthly Workout & Wine class that allows exercisers to hang out with their classmates and bench-press barrels of wine after class, a feature that got the class a shout out as one of CBS New York's 6 Best Fitness Classes for a New Year's Resolution. And although PNT Fitness' group classes have received most of the press, the studio also offers personal training that includes nutrition counseling, toning, and agility training as part of a personalized training program.

Heavy bags the size of tree trunks hang from the ceiling of Urban Jungle’s indoor workout room. Along with the pull-up bars that stretch across the space like steely vines, they do the gym’s name justice and make for an effective—if sometimes grueling—workout. Brick walls and a spray-painted logo also contribute to the gym’s urban aesthetic, though students hardly have time to reflect on the decor as they advance through a series of pushups, dips, and pull-ups. The team of trainers designs each fitness program with functional muscle movements in mind, and each of their three-week boot-camp challenges draws on up to 1,000 of those dynamic motions to make every aspect of urban life easier, from sprinting after cabs to lifting them over traffic jams. Trainers also prepare bodies for self-defense with martial-arts classes that extract the practical fitness elements from weapon- or hand-based fighting disciplines. Three different methods of the Atienza Family System—a Filipino martial art—teach students how to deal with multiple attackers, and cardio-kickboxing classes draw on the principles of muay thai kickboxing to strike fear into calories.

"I am on a quest to create super-humans out of mere mortals,? declares Justin Cotler, owner of Crossfit Dynamix. He doesn?t earn a living by simply painting capital s?s on unitards; instead, he helps athletes soar to new fitness plateaus inside a brick-lined gym filled with medicine balls, heavy ropes, and giant tires. Backed by a staff of certified CrossFit coaches, he motivates clients to run faster during sprinting drills and add spring to their steps during challenging plyometrics. Olympic lifting moves such as rack jerks and push presses strengthen the upper body more effectively than hoisting one?s boss in the air to celebrate a raise. Bodyweight exercises performed on pull-up bars, gymnastics rings, and floor mats bolster strength, flexibility, and coordination. The workouts can be customized to many ages and fitness levels, including absolute beginners, elite athletes, senior citizens, and school-age children. To help clients melt stress while building long, lean muscles, the gym also offers yoga classes for all skill sets.
