Thrill seekers see the world from on high with Skydive Smoky Mountains. The wind rushes past and the patchy landscape below rushes to meet them as they plummet from up to 12,000 feet in the air. Tandem jumps help individuals with little training experience the thrill of free falling. A video team will record that pivotal moment when skydivers realize why they call gravity a law.

YMCA of East Tennessee holds fast to its three-fold mission: to encourage healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility. Each of their five locations brims with cardio and weight equipment, as well as digital ActivTrax kiosks, which print out customized workout plans based on each guests' information. Instructors lead group fitness classes for adults and stacks of trench-coat-clad babies disguised as adults, offering sessions that range from kickboxing to water aerobics. In addition to specialized sessions for seniors, they also lead sports programs for kids, such as swimming, basketball, and karate, as well as host a youth-based leader's club.

The folks at YMCA of East Tennessee offer memberships to military families and host programs for kids who have dropped out of school or who have been suspended. Their scholarship program helps families send their kids to the YMCA's fun, safe, character-developing programs no matter their financial circumstances.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

From its grand opening in 1962 until its golden anniversary in 2012, Ice Chalet has welcomed visitors with two prominent features as they pass through the lobby on the way to hockey practices and figure skating lessons: the roaring fireplace, a popular gathering place for chilly skaters, and the wall mural of a snowy mountain scene. Each serves to remind skaters of the long, dignified history of the chalet-style building and inspires them to carry on the torch of the sport. Meanwhile, the 75'x175' rink continues to host public skating sessions throughout the week, when its not filled with practicing hockey players, students enrolled in the facility's skating school, or octopi vacationing from Detroit.

More than 20 years ago, H. Clay Aalders was teaching himself how to fly-fish on his uncle's pond in Ohio. These days, he's teaching others his art and drawing on years of experience to help them learn to properly cast their lines. As an Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Guide, he's held to the high-quality standards of the brand and is recertified each year when he's re-named as a Lord of Fly Fishing. His trips can last up to a full day and lessons are provided (if necessary) along with all the required gear.

Close-quarters combat, a woodland battle, or an urban-village scuffle. At Battlefield Airsoft, you might find yourself face-to-face with enemies on any of these inventive terrain options. During games, players fire soft plastic BBs to tag enemy opposition. It's similar to paintball, except it's less messy and doesn't require you to hold a BFA in abstract art to play. Players can engage scrimmages with their own gear or rent or buy airsoft equipment at the onsite shop.
