Legendary Excursions’ wheelmen demonstrate the tactics necessary for navigating unpaved environments and install adrenaline-hungry guests inside a 190-horsepower, 4-speed manual-transmission Baja 1000–style off-road racing car. During the Ride Along Adventure, patrons ride shotgun as a professional driver steers them through three laps on a tricky, 6.3-mile off-road course at race-like speeds, navigating tough terrain and catching air on jumps. Experts kick-start the Taste of Baja Adventure by honing fear-conquering clients' driving skills and dressing them in racing helmets and other appropriate gear. Once suited up, racers will be formally introduced to their trusty motor-steed, learning all about its controls, safety equipment, and ticklish spots before having their picture taken with it. Adventurers then spend three laps traversing the baja track's jumps, sweeping turns and rough terrain, letting the colossal BFGoodrich tires create swirling dust formations and spew out perfectly cooked mud pies.

Jeep Cherokees trundle over boulders, crevasses, and grassy expanses at Rausch Creek Off Road Park, a sprawling 3,000-acre retreat devoted to off-roading. Divided into northeast, south, east, and west quadrants, the park offers something for every level of driver, with 30 miles of easy, intermediate, and difficult trails traversable by 4x4 and navigated by optional tour guides. Engines rev year-round under the shade of tree-lined stretches or across a 150-foot-wide glacial deposit littered with huge boulders begging to be climbed or lifted onto one’s shoulders in an effort to impress a hard-to-please parent. Under the auspices of park officers Bruce Shallis and Lynn Ehrenfeld, Rausch Creek undergoes constant improvements, from its newly constructed event pavilion, to its local race series, which features both manmade and natural obstacles.

Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary based on location.
