Gold's Gym began more than 45 years ago, and today features an impressive array of next-generation fitness gadgets, a results-oriented focus, and squeaky-clean facilities. With today's deal, one of Gold's Gym's staff of certified personal trainers will test each client's strength and flexibility, among other metrics, to help determine and design a personalized fitness regimen. Thus inspired, neophyte iron workers can complement their one-on-one sessions with regular attendance at the gym, where they can hop on a cardio machine, pump up in a controlled manner on strength-training machines, tighten up in the abdominal- and functional-stretching area, or stick with lifting huge, heavy pieces of metal and commercial chest freezers.
Inspired by Prohibition-era vigilante Richard Williams Jr.'s illicit liquor deliveries, Whiskey Dick’s boasts a menu of savory burgers, sandwiches, and more, as well as 16 draft beers. Goad chompers into taking on the Big Dick’s burger challenge, a beef binge that bombards mouth caverns with nine 1/3-pound patties slathered in cheese ($26.11). Those who complete consumption in 15 minutes are rewarded with a T-shirt, not having to pay for the burger, and a set of false teeth once worn by champion eater George Washington. Vacant belly hovels can also be furnished with the fried mac 'n' cheese ($8.79) and a slab of Don’t Let Your meatloaf ($10.14, available 5–11 p.m.)
Growing up in North Las Vegas, Tracy Eliason discovered that time spent bouncing on a trampoline can take a person places beyond the yard. Tracy's bouncing talents took him to the Junior Olympics, where he competed in the Trampoline and Tumbling event as a teen. The accomplished athlete knows well how trampoline bouncing can be irresistible to kids. He opened his multifaceted jumper's paradise, FLIPnOUT Fun Centers, in 2010 to serve as an outlet for youngsters and adults alike to have an enjoyable time while contributing to their fitness. The indoor gymnasium is comprised of large trampoline arenas, inflatable bouncy houses, and a video game arcade. A staff of energetic young trampoline tutors advises tykes on the art of safe jumping, supervises trampoline-enhanced games of dodgeball, and helps show gravity it's not the boss of anyone. Fundraisers and birthday parties are often held at the bounce headquarters, and the team at FLIPnOUT Fun Centers also offers Monday Night Air-obics classes.
Inside Warehouse Wars' five-level, 4,500-square-foot arena, players brandishing realistic and futuristic-looking phasers compete in rounds of high-energy laser tag. On five labyrinthine sublevels filled with narrow corridors, patrons engage in gaming scenarios such as capture the flag and terminator. After open-play or group rounds as part of birthday parties, school-group visits, or team-building trips, guests can keep up their competitive spirit with rounds of foosball.
Nothing spoils a party like a detailed flow-chart of events. That's where Sin City Parties steps in. Planners remove the administration details from otherwise raucous occasions, taking the reins on bachelor, bachelorette, and birthday fetes. After guests pick a package, a call from one of the group's VIP hosts sets the disco ball rolling. Each celebration gains style from amenities such as pole-dancing classes, nightclub outings, pool parties, and limo transportation.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
