Between all of the concrete walls, inflatable obstacles, and cleverly positioned barrels, it’s hard to get a good look at anyone at Reno Indoor Paintball. On any given day, the 27,000-square-foot facility hosts dozens of well-armored players, who sprint around the grounds and splatter their opponents until supplies run out or they accomplish their missions. During battles, the staff remains on hand to help players to gear up and to ensure things remain civil. And on select days, staffers also host training sessions or events for larger groups looking to celebrate occasions such as birthdays, bachelor parties, or a high-school graduate’s first successful load of laundry.

The certified trainers and staff at Saint Mary's Center for Health & Fitness believe that when clients have access to a wide variety of activities and amenities, they’ll be likelier to stick with their fitness goals. At this spacious center, members work up a sweat in the gym, which features free weights and a fleet of cardio and strength-training machines, but there’s far more here than at most public jungle gyms. Jog around the three-lane indoor track, or take a Pilates class in the private Reformer Pilates studio. There’s a separate spin studio, a giant group-fitness studio, and a large indoor pool, where members swim laps and gain lean muscle in Aqua Blast classes. Kids can come along, too, since there’s a complimentary, supervised children’s playroom, and when workouts are finished, clients can head over to the Internet lounge and café, where they can purchase snacks and beverages to refuel.
