Certified physician assistant Melissa Watson knows there's no single path to weight loss. It's more of a choose-your-own adventure experience, especially at her clinic, Seymour Weight & Wellness. There, she and her team create custom weight-loss plans for each patient, drawing on an expansive toolkit. For instance, their nutritious weight-loss menus are based on recommendations from the American Diabetic Association rather than the powerful Cheese Lobby. The staff can also prescribe appetite suppressants and administer lipotropic shots of LipoVite, which may help encourage weight loss with a formula of vitamins and amino acids.

But the creature high above the treetops isn't a bird, a plane, or a sports mascot recently released back into the wild.

Spread over 1.5 miles, the ziplines wind through canopies and down mountain slopes on trips that last roughly two hours. Expert guides tag along on every tour to ensure safety and instruct adventurers on equipment.

Birds and Clays, Inc. equips 12 forested stations with automatic traps that shoot sporting-clay targets high in the air, where they attempt to evade hunters’ bullets with swift, aerial maneuvers. Sporting clay professionals acquaint visiting duos with their weapons and equipment before waving them on to solve vendettas against clay in a manner that doesn’t terrorize local pottery shops. Trappers man the stations and load six to eight disks at each as guests take aim, hoping to shatter as many proxy pigeons as possible before heading through the woods to the next station. A limited number of golf carts swiftly shuttle patrons between stations when available, and cartless dischargers can trek the woodsy paths via foot or off-roading skateboards.
