"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.

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 that, since 1986, has seen more than 7 million visitors. Today, more than 450 interactive exhibits 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 and Plutonian trash talk on a mini-golf course inspired by the cosmos.
