From 3,500 feet, you can barely even see the wild horses roaming Chincoteague Island. But when you’re hang gliding alongside an instructor from Virginia Hang Gliding, it doesn’t seem to matter much. What you can see from these towering heights are awe-inspiring views of waves crashing in from both the Atlantic and the Chesapeake Bay while you feel the adrenaline rush of soaring through the air. Clients help maneuver the glider over Virginia’s scenic beaches, far above the other visitors and the hundreds of bottles containing notes about boring islands. The whole time, they rest safe in the knowledge that they’re in the capable hands of one of the experienced pros who ride along.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your 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.

Sunlight glints off the glassy water of King's Creek, where it dapples the russet and ebony manes of horses with names such as Trooper and Pepsi as they amble across Triple M Ranch's acreage. Six days per week, the gentle steeds await their saddles, bridles, and visitors as the stables' expert guides lead herds on four daily rides whose routes follow the creek and naturally occurring compass groves through nearby woods and pastures. Triple M also hosts horses for field boarding, where they roam the 150-acre farm and graze freely on hay and other grassy treats while befriending fellow stallions and fillies within the borders of a white picket fence.
