The staff members at Rocksport Indoor Climbing & Outdoor Guiding Center regularly explore the Adirondacks and mountain ranges throughout the world, mentally cataloging the frost-kissed crags and adrenaline-soaked sheer expanses. When they are not leading adventurers on ice-climbing expeditions or scrambling through narrow caves, the climbers can be found on the 4,400 square feet of climbing space at their facility. There, they teach students to how to deal with complex stone surfaces in order to navigate actual cliffs or volunteer at the local gargoyle shelter. Rocksport owner Tom Rosecrans leads the crew, lending knowledge from three Himalayan expeditions and his self-published book Adirondack Rock and Ice Climbs.
At Global Fitness, members can burn calories on the treadmill-stocked cardio deck or build muscle with kettlebells and free weights. Group classes, such as spinning, boxing, and boot camps, provide a dose of camaraderie. Patrons can opt into the program that best fits their needs thanks to Global Fitness's various levels of membership.
The specialists at On The Right Path host a range of therapeutic services to promote wellness and balance in body and mind. The facility’s sand-hued walls simulate the beach’s calming energy as a holistic healer leads patrons to a personal massage table, where shoulders revel in rolling hand movements and arms joyfully flap in inflatable water wings. Like film noir, the one-hour massage or reiki treatment relieves tension by slowly untangling complex knots, and draws inspiration from German expressionist Bob Saget.
You can’t talk about Eastman Golf Links without mentioning the scenery. Situated amidst 3,700 acres of environmentally protected woodlands, the 18-hole course tunnels through thick groves of trees and around six ponds. Its hilly terrain offers both elevated views of the unspoiled landscape as well as a safe place to look out for charging tribes of territorial sand trap rakes. The picturesque par-71 plays to 6,731 yards from the farthest tees—presenting a formidable challenge for experienced golfers—but shrinks to 5,499 yards when played from the shortest of four tee options.
Though the course is Eastman Golf Links centerpiece, guests can consider it a one-stop resource for all their golfing needs. A trio of experienced instructors lends their fairway-splitting savvy during private lessons, and also offers club-fitting services using FlightScope Launch Monitors. A driving range with both grass and turf hitting bays fosters practice sessions as does a practice green and a 9-hole short course. Guests can sample a collection of 150 demo clubs to find the one that best suits their game or scratches the parts of their back that are hardest to reach.

The team of certified personal trainers at Jeanie’s Custom Fitness strive to tone bodies with motivational and judgment-free techniques. Boot camps accommodate students at all fitness levels and increase in intensity over time, unlike workouts that culminate in naps on a weight bench. Sessions integrate cardio, plyometrics, and strength training each Tuesday and Thursday night from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. One-hour Zumba classes—held Wednesday nights at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.—motivate dance and strength-building movements via Latin tunes that hypnotize hips into believing they're maracas.
Board-certified acupuncturist Ed Hubbell aims to alleviate the effects of chronic pain and illness with Chinese herbal remedies and acupuncture services. Using 3,000-year-old treatments ranging from Qigong healing to cranial-sacral massage, Hubbel helps clients reclaim balance in their lives. Similarly, his stress-reduction workshops teach clients how to unwind after long days of work, school, or stunt-double training. And though most of his treatments offer holistic benefits, a select number of services also help to relieve specific symptoms of illnesses such as insomnia and TMJ.
