Paramount Grove’s head trainer Molly McAdow welcomes eager horseback riders to her 30-acre countryside headquarters, where they’ll find two outdoor arenas, one indoor arena, and a hunt field ready for trotting and galloping. McAdow has honed her expertise throughout a lifetime of horseback riding—a career that includes numerous salt-lick tastings and medals in both the equitation and hunter rings as a junior. Riders learn from her wisdom during lessons, in which she sheds light on proper technique and helps students achieve their goals.
Steeds’ safety is also of high importance to McAdow. Fire-safety sprinklers protect every private stall, and the barn and indoor arena are heated during the winter. This prevents horses from getting cold and snowmen from wandering inside to taunt the animals with their noses.

Fit Body Boot Camp's obsidian-sculpted staff motivates boot campers during the results-oriented fitness program, designed to whittle weakness from flagging physiques, leaving tough and toned musculatures. Surrender exteriors to a course of nonstop, 45-minute workouts, each incorporating cardio exercises, strength training, core tightening, and balance building, until bodies are sufficiently able to crush bricks into sand and sand into immortality.
It may seem like a paradox, but yoga can provide relaxation as much as it provides exercise. With a broad slate of more than a dozen types of classes, Total Body Yoga lets you have it both ways. The curriculum ranges from gentle restorative yoga classes to higher-energy sessions that feature more challenging poses at a quicker clip. Beyond the yoga mat, the staff also leads meditation workshops and weeklong children's summer camps that encourage kids to use their creativity constructively through yoga fitness, games, music, and crafts.
Throughout the year at Orion Riding Academy, pro equestrian Lesley Teichman takes riders of all skill levels under her wing and teaches them the art of horsemanship. Lessons cover all aspects of sound riding, even incorporating non-riding topics such as grooming, handling, and tacking up. Once aboard their friendly mount, students absorb sound technical approaches to riding and jumping and take their mastery to the next level by working on the intangible skill of good communication with the horse.
