Rather than allowing members to fend for themselves on machines like average gym staffers, the trainers at Powerfit Personal Training take more of a hands-on approach to gym workouts, helming group Personal Interval Training sessions replete with workout stations that blend strength, performance, and conditioning exercises. During sessions, trainers dole out encouragement and ensure proper form as members toss medicine balls, lift weights, and paddle on the rowing machine.
The trainers also custom-design workout programs during one-on-one personal fitness-training sessions, which are designed to help trainees break through barriers and achieve specific goals, such as losing weight, gaining muscle, or completing the Boston Marathon in a single lateral jump.
Q-ZAR Laser Tag's battlefield is a 3,800 square-foot arena?a labyrinth of pulsing lights, sirens, and lasers. Music blasts through the speakers and black lights lend the skirting shadows and moving silhouettes a traceable glow, turning white T-shirts into targets and concealing moving bodies as they run and duck through the playfield. It's in this multisensory space-age arena that two teams square off in an intergalactic battle to seize and deactivate the other team's headquarters, all while tagging each other with laser guns and using their best tactical strategies to dodge their opponents' pursuits. After a 5-minute safety briefing, games last 15 minutes, and up to 36 people or shapeshifting aliens masquerading as humans can participate at once.
Clad in masks and wielding toy weapons, combatants crouch, hustle, and weave their way through the many battlefields of Playland. Players trade colorful fusillades at Playland's newest arena?their outdoor paintball field?while in the indoor airsoft theater, challengers duke it out in military-style tactical scenarios. In the laser-tag arena, weaponized beams of light fill the air as fighters compete as the stadium tracks the accuracy of their shots, documents their kill/death ratio, and assigns them to several types of missions. Playland also opens its battlegrounds for the dart- and foam-flying fun of kids' Nerf games.
Picture in your mind a buffet. You're probably not thinking of locally grown vegetables and homemade soups, but that's exactly what you'll find at Fresh Choice. The restaurant essentially redefines what a buffet can be, filling tray after tray with organic produce and made-from-scratch entr?es. Much of what you'll find is culled from Fresh Choice's very own 100+ acre farm, whose owners pride themselves on growing sustainable vegetables and crunchy salad crutons.
