As the former world-record holder for driving distance, Brad Peterson turned his passion for power into an all-encompassing purview of golf strategy. For more than 14 years, Brad has been helping golfers lower scores through private and group lessons at Peterson Golf. He determines the issues his student might be experiencing and identifies key areas for improvement. Armed with this information, he devises custom lesson plans, including swing-specific exercises and video-swing analysis to reveal imbalanced backswings and triple-axel follow-throughs.
Although Brad has taught more than 8,000 students in his career, one pupil stands out, not only as a physically imposing human but also as a success story: NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry. After meeting and discussing golf, Brad turned Rick into a three-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion with his techniques for maximizing power and avoiding low-post rejections by other former NBA big men.
Olympian Fencing Club's coaching team, helmed by U.S. Olympian and award-winning blade buff Velizar Iliev, shepherds students of all skill levels through sword-swinging sessions that bolster balance, agility, and strategy formulation. Neuvieme novices can orient themselves in the world of rapier weapons and wit in beginner-level classes—which teach proper épée employment, basic attack and defense tactics, and point scoring—and more seasoned swordsfolk can hone their skills in intermediate and advanced classes. Or, opt for the more fitness-focused open-fencing sessions, which eschew competitive matches for friendly bouts devoid of pressure and duel-invoking glove slaps.
Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During four fun-filled pop-in visits ($7 per child), children can leap around these gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like legless snakes through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate controlled and cleanly maintained according to rigorous guidelines by well-trained staff. Parents bounce for free during family jump time, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow their neighbor’s kid or just win one by collecting enough cereal-box tops. Alternatively, this Groupon can be used toward a private party package, which gets you and yours privileged access to the 12,500-square-foot facility and its equipment, which is designed to automatically deflate at the approach of anyone not involved in your party.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Planet Fitness's massive, brightly colored edifices teem with aerobic, strength-training, tanning, and massage options, tailored to suit burgeoning buffs of all ages and abilities. After an intense muscle pummeling on the extensive selection of strength-training equipment and free weights, valiant athletes and masochistic vampires alike may bask in the unlimited artificial sunshine of the gym's tanning booths. Meanwhile, an army of shiatsu massage chairs stands at the ready, twiddling soothing robot thumbs and waiting to coax tension from tired tendons.
