Finding a babysitter is one thing that mothers don’t have to do in order to attend Stroller Strong’s fitness classes. That’s because children are always welcome at classes—in fact, the sessions are based around the act of pushing kids in strollers. Inside Leblond Recreation Center or outdoors at Ault Park, groups convene to burn calories and tone muscles behind the rolling wheels of their child’s buggy. Afterward, they spend 10 minutes working out abdominal muscles while kids play with the studio’s toys.

Q&A with Kristopher Stone, Director

What special training do you or your staff have?

We have extensive backgrounds in plant science, since we are afterall an Arboretum (a living museum for plants). Our knowledgeable staff offer expert information on any plant-related questions that visitors may have to the Arboretum. In addition, several of our employees are ISA Certified Arborists and can provide excellent pruning tips.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Our property is 121 acres, with over two miles of paved trails and around [a quarter]-mile of non paved woodland hiking trails. Because of this, people often do not plan out how long it will take to see everything, or do not come prepared with refreshments packed. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, and plant for at least two hours, if not more, to see everything.

Several times a year, Sankt Nikolaus Lauf embraces exercise, charity, and German heritage by hosting a costume-filled run/walk in the heart of Indianapolis. In the fall months, the race joins forces with GermanFest and invites waves of jovial runners and walkers to don lederhosen for the event. Weeks later, during the St. Nikolaus Festival, hordes of athletes don the traditional scarlet suit and flowing beard of Santa Claus for the Sankt Nikolaus Day Lauf. With numbers pinned to the backs of their seasonal ensembles and the race's starting words “Achtung, fertig, los!” ringing in their ears, racers sprint through the chilly air in pursuit of awards, festival goodies, and funds for charitable foundations.

A collection of adrenaline-pumping ziplines whoosh through the forest on Markin Farms Zipline Adventures? 80-acre farm. The multilevel platforms, built high in the trees, connect the course?s ziplines, which pass above bubbling creeks, over ponds, and through time. The scenic course includes challenge areas and ends with a double-zip setup, where two riders race to the finish directly above or below one another, overlooking the sparkling water. The farm also offers specialty zips that glide through the forest after twilight or just as the sun sets.
