Though Gateway Hills Health Club flourishes with yoga and spinning studios, group fitness classes, and personal-training sessions, it's much more than a gym. Offering 24-hour access, the health club is also staffed with professionals who are dedicated to helping members achieve their health goals, assisting them with weight management, and helping them build strength and flexibility during hot yoga and hot pilates classes. Their new computer controlled infrared heating system can bring the temperature up to 105 degrees.
A former art teach of 30 years, owner Patti Spinelli welcomes students of all ages into her studio to superimpose colorful imagery upon three-dimensional figurines and placards. More than 100 unique pieces beckon to painters, who are encouraged to don aprons, brushes, and paints to festoon pottery pieces with colors they draw from a vivid palette or channel through a past life as a kaleidoscope. The studio's lively instructors roam the workspace doling out encouraging words and helpful techniques. Patti also hosts intimate art classes, opens her studio to group parties, and stocks traditional canvases for those who prefer rendering still lifes or globes from a time when the Earth was flat.
Laser tag, ziplines, hang-gliders, and paragliders aren't your typical bumper crop. And yet that's what can be found at Morningside Flight Park, which uses its green expanses as a training ground to help humans conquer the domain of birds and Frisbees. As students master the principles of piloting a paraglider, steering a hang glider, or flapping their arms really hard, they're treated to picturesque views of New Hampshire. All the while, expert instructors relay techniques and principles of safety in a fun and focused environment.
• For $39, you get one round of golf with cart rental Monday–Thursday (up to a $79 value). • For $39, you get a Stratton Green Card, including one free round of golf with a cart (a $79 value). The free round is valid only from Sept. 6 through Oct. 16. Stratton Mountain Golf Course dots a scenic, Geoffrey Cornish–designed course with 27 challenging holes. With today's deals, golfers drive and putt their way through two of the three nine-hole courses, assigned upon tee-time reservation, taking in beautiful vistas of meandering streams, distant mountains, and animatronic tableau dramatizing the lonely existences of lost balls. The course's Green Card unlocks up to $30 off all future golf games for the rest of the season, sharpening ball-hitting skills more effectively than practice balls made of flint. Though not included in the Groupon, an on-site pro shop allows players to stock up on course-appropriate apparel and purchase new clubs to replace the ones they accidentally over-bedazzled.

Absolute Adventure Tours' seasoned guides outfit riders in gloves, goggles, and helmets before waving small groups of Polaris ATVs onto the paths that wind through Jericho Mountain State Park. Excursions begin daily at 8:30 a.m. at Absolute PowerSports and RV with a discourse about safety before patrons caravan to the park and take a spin on four-wheel-drive, automatic ATVs with windshields and storage bins for personal items or miniature conscience doppelgängers. Adventurers as young as 6 cling to parent chaperones while roadsters prowl through moss-laden bogs and take in panoramic mountain views for three hours. Frequent pit stops, including a lunch break, foster opportunities for exploration on foot. Tours wind down by 2 p.m., dispatching riders to enjoy the park by taking a dip in the lake or panning for gold.
