Divided between two locations in Manchester and Nashua, Vertical Dreams' 15,000 square feet of simulated mountainside are packed with obstacles and tough sections to challenge climbers of all skill levels. At the Manchester gym, gutted elevator shafts lined with hand grips extend four stories upward, creating 70-foot vertical surfaces. The Nashua location boasts 10,000 square feet of wall space, with textured surfaces that respond realistically to climber's hands and feet and fill their nostrils with simulated rock smells.

Vertical Dreams' staff of veteran climbers teaches students one-on-one or in groups. In beginner lesson packages, instructors show aspiring climbers the figurative and literal ropes involved in belaying, climbing, and knot tying, and the teachers in advanced top-roping and sport-climbing classes push their students' abilities to climb solo or in a lead position.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

At each bowling center, balls hurtle down smooth, polished lanes as LCD screens keep track of scores and shimmering party lights illuminate the faces of determined bowlers. After lacing up some slide-enabling shoes and clearing the gutters of deciduous pins, bowlers set their sights on toppling 10-pin clusters. Carpets bedecked with psychedelic swirls lead to shelves stocked with neon-colored balls, which proffer their pin-busting talents to bowlers of various sizes. Fingers can warm up by mashing buttons in an arcade full of entrancing video games or bench-pressing french fries at the onsite grill and pub.

Q&A with Juel, Owner/Instructor

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We keep our clients motivated by providing alternative fitness. Our classes are fun and you are constantly learning new skills, so you are less focused on the workout portion of it. That is, until you are really sore the next day! People want to keep coming back to improve their skills and learn things they never thought they could do.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?

At this time, we only provide classes. We offer flexibility, hand balancing, pole dance, aerial silks, aerial hoop (lyra), and conditioning.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

Our studio focuses on safety first, and then fun. People are welcome to take whatever aspect of pole dance and aerial fitness they enjoy. If you want to focus on the dance portion and do it just for yourself, that is fine! If you want to learn really hard tricks and compete nationally, that is more than welcome as well!

Q&A with Eric Berger, Development Director

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

We tell the story of America's industrial revolution as it unfolded in Manchester, New Hampshire, which was once home to the largest textile manufacturer in the world. The museum's exhibits and displays are professionally designed and presented. We get positive comments and reviews from our visitors who come from around the United States and the world.

What?s your favorite part of your job?

Being able to share with others American history through the history of Manchester and its wonderful mill buildings, which are truly exceptional.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The mill buildings in Manchester's Millyard District were all built by the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company over a period of 75 years. The company ensured that all the bricks be a uniform color to give a sense of unity and harmony. The Millyard is on the National Register of Historic Places, as are the nearby still-intact corporate housing clusters built by the company for its workers.

On May 29, 1970, the first drive flew down the fairway of the first hole at Manchester Country Club and came to a stop on the carpet-like fairways that would become its trademark. Today, the finished design first drawn up by architect Geoffrey Cornish still rolls through 165 acres of the Green Mountains, though in a slightly different form. The front nine remains intact, but the back nine has undergone significant improvements over the years. A full renovation that incorporated 34 additional acres was completed in 2003, bringing the course up to its present length of nearly 6,800 yards. In addition to a lengthy golf course, the club boasts a golf shop, four Class-A PGA/LPGA Professional instructors, two clay tennis courts, and full service dining facilities.

Course at a Glance

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,789 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 73.2 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 138 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees
