Though Master Sun Park's friendly demeanor doesn't suggest it, a powerful warrior lies behind his warm smile and crisp, white uniform. At age 11, Park earned a third-degree black belt in tae kwon do before continuing on to win numerous championship titles in Ohio state and national competitions. Now, with more than 43 years of martial-arts experience beneath his fifth-degree black belt, Park extends his expertise to students 4 and older at his private training studio.
Plush blue mats stretch across the studio's floor, where Park and his staff of WTF- and USAT-certified instructors lead tae kwon do and kickboxing classes for children and adults alike, in addition to personal-training sessions. They strive to promote physical fitness along with the values of discipline, responsibility, and confidence. Throughout the studio, students wallop punching bags, halve wooden boards, and carve the likeness of Jean-Claude Van Damme into stone with just their fists of fury.
Body-length heavy bags sway from blows dealt by boxing and kickboxing participants. They’re working up a sweat, but they’re not worried about getting hit back unlike the participants in the boxing ring. At TITLE Boxing Club Loveland, West Chester, and Hamilton locations, participants shed calories and relieve stress by pummeling bags or going toe-to-toe with a trainer wearing punching mitts. Either way, the team of trainers oversees participants’ safety and techniques during each of their workouts. TITLE Boxing Club welcomes families and participants of all ages.
Geting in shape is treated as a science at NRG Fitness. The professional trainers possess an in-depth understanding of biomechanics as well as the relationship between neuromuscular function and movement. Additionally, the center embraces the practice of muscle-activation techniques—private training sessions can resemble physical therapy in the sense that they actively engage any weak or underused muscles to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and increase flexibility and strength. NRG Fitness also offers traditional personal training, outfitting visitors with professional guidance as they develop a workout regimen tailored to address their particular needs and goals. Fitness classes give guests a chance to pursue those goals within a supportive group environment, and the gym also features a wide range of exercise equipment, including free weights, ellipticals, and a bag full of heavy stuff that people can pick up.
Early and mid morning fitness camps including Boot Camp style fitness and Baby Boomer Boot Camp fitness. Conducted at outstanding high school facilities and gymnastics facilities. Evening cardio and strength classes available, stretch clinics and Pilates also. Warren County area wide.
Times of play are different depending on the play area and day, so check the schedule before you go. This Groupon can also be applied toward birthday parties. Parents live vicariously through their kids because they’re secretly jealous of their ability to drink from totally awesome juice boxes without getting the stink-eye from the boss during company meetings. At Run, Jump,-n-Play, kids can do that and much more while interacting with others and benefiting from healthy exercise amid thousands of square feet of fun. While boinging in bounce houses ($7 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday for kids older than two; $8 on Thursdays), swinging through playsets ($5), plinking phosphorescent balls ($4.95 for kids 3–7, $6.95 for 8+), and hurling larger phosphorescent orbs at neon-colored pins ($15 for a half-hour, $26 for one hour; up to five children per lane), kids also learn valuable independent skills that will help them develop socially en route to productive careers as princesses, astronauts, and ponies.
Featuring 36 holes of brand-new miniature golf in a newly renovated facility, Cincinnati Golf Center gives golfers a whimsical break from the stresses and frequent quicksand deaths associated with full-sized golf. Boogie like boom-box-toting caddies through four rounds ($6.50 per round) of microscopic golf on either of the Golf Center's two fully compressed 18-hole courses. The Golf Center is staffed by two PGA-sanctioned golf professionals, who will gladly share tips on how Phil Mickelson slips his ball through windmill blades and into angry gorillas' mouths. They are also trained to spot pro-golf-player imposters, so leave the Jack Nicklaus mask in the closet and just be yourself as you hone your micro-game over the course of 72 closely mowed and amusingly obstacled greens.
