The trainers at Beach Bunny Bodies slim down their students with one-hour boot-camp sessions and nutritional advice. Their sample diet plan suggests that women eat wholesome, small meals that maximize protein intake and minimize play-doh consumption. Exemplary eats include hard-boiled eggs, low-fat yogurt, and fruit kebabs. Their classes accommodate women of all ages and sizes, who spend 60 minutes performing circuit workouts, functional training, mat exercises, and short-distance running, among other challenges. Instructors make motivation the centerpiece of their campaign to improve the health of their students. Over the course of about six weeks, participants may see tangible results as dramatic as a reduction of two dress sizes or one performance of Hamlet in which Hamlet wears not one but two dresses.
At Family Paintball Center, players armed with rented markers storm the fields during classic games: capture the flag, elimination, and elimination’s cousin, resurrection, in which tagged players can be reborn. Separated by sky-high screens, the sprawling fields are scattered with wooden fences and spools as well as inflatable shapes that players can use to dodge incoming pellets. To make a day of it, groups can bring along food and drink, and even set up their own barbecue grill. There is also a concessions stand on-site, and local pizzerias deliver to the field, rather than just throwing their pies there Frisbee-style.
