London, England. 2012. On their off time, Olympic judo competitors Marti Malloy and soon-to-be-gold-medalist Kayla Harrison turned to chiropractors from Adjustments for Life for pain relief. Doctor of Chiropractic Joe Arvay helms the practice, providing spinal corrections that help the body heal and restore itself. Chiropractic care can soothe a slew of common ailments, including allergies, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, headaches, and arthritis.
Designed as one of the tallest, steepest man-made climbing destinations in the Rocky Mountain region, ROCK'n & JAM'n challenges climbers new and old with a medley of nook- and cranny-laden walls. During the two-hour introductory lesson, ROCK'n & JAM'n's full-time, web-slinging instructors teach aspiring mountain goats the basics of belaying (a term used to describe rope management between climbing partners), safety, and how to avoid rookie climbing errors such as ignoring gravity and walking vertically up the wall. After two hours of training, you'll be free to spend the rest of the day taking on challenges such as Boulder or the neck-craning Front Canyon.

Halfway through a 1080, a glove slips—it's time to bail. Normally, the prospect of landing means crashing a shoulder into snow and ice, but instead a cloud seems to catch the fall. At Progresh, a giant indoor airbag absorbs the impact of falls as skiers, snow- and skateboarders, BMX bike mechanics, and gymnasts practice airborne tricks in a controlled training environment. Before designing the jumps, ramps, rails, and trampolines that fill the 11,000-square-foot suite, the gym's founders each spent more than 20 years riding slopes and working with children in gymnastics programs. Using that experience, the staff helps athletes master everything from grinding rails and jibs to dropping off 10-foot cliffs and vert walls—all with the greater safety and confidence afforded by the inflatable airbag.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
At Healing Waters Mind & Body Float Studio, putting a lid over a swimming pool isn’t only good for pulling a prank on the swim team. At the center, this experience involves floating atop 10 inches of warm, sterilized water mixed with 850 pounds of healing epsom salts. The sessions completely quiet all stimuli, depriving the senses for an experience owner Lisa Kay Lopez called life changing. Sensory deprivation’s benefits include improving focus and creativity, alleviating pain, and decreasing anxiety. Committed to helping people get the most out of the float-tank experience, Lisa keeps the studio open seven days a week and allows 24-hour service by appointment.
Her staff preps clients for each float with prefloat therapy, which begins with an introduction to flotation and a session on the inversion table; in a private room, clients are situated at an inverted angle, which helps circulate blood flow and oxygen, and clients are given headphones that softly play binaural beats to synchronize brainwaves into a state of relaxation. After 20 minutes, guests rinse off in their own private shower, which is stocked with shampoo and conditioner, body wash, and towels.
Clients then enter the tank, deprived of sensory input including light, sound, smell, and gravity. Afterwards, they can relax with a cup of tea or lemon water in the studio’s relaxation room and reminisce about their watery therapy session or the first time they actually drank 64 ounces of water in one day.
