"The Ambassador of Pool," 22-time world-champion trick-shot pool player Paul Gerni, has experience instructing all levels of cue wielders to precisely pocket ceramic orbs. During two one-hour lessons, Paul will rendezvous at popular Sidepockets or Shark's pool halls to teach players essentials such as how to improve cue-ball control and speed and when to play safeties. Under Paul’s friendly tutelage, players cover the basics of choosing the right angles and reading the table's patterns without invading its personal space during quick geometry tutorials. Adept pocket seekers may have time to explore more complex aspects of the game and even be invited to play on Paul Gerni's personal practice table, covered in Simonis cloth, which, like an overfed kangaroo, has extratight pockets.

Inside each Sky Zone location, a wall-to-wall half-pipe made entirely of trampolines gives children and adults a venue where they can safely hop, bounce, and somersault to their hearts' content. Visitors can meander along the bounceable terrain in the open trampoline arena, throw themselves into giant foam pits, or sharpen their competitive edges in trampoline-assisted sports such as dodgeball. SkyRobics classes merge gravity-defying fun with fitness during instructor-led workouts that include calisthenics, core exercises, and strength-building aerobics to help guests shed calories without hurting their joints or taking a wrong turn on a treadmill.

Designed by golf-course architect Roger Packard, Sunflower Hills Golf Course boasts tree-lined, zoysia-grass fairways and winding cart paths through its championship 18-hole labyrinth. Direct dimpled orbs past the treacherous water hazards, sand traps, and fire-breathing Bill Gates statues that punctuate the par-72 men's, par-73 women's and juniors' course (up to a $31 value) while navigating the grounds in a shared golf cart (a $14 value). Before or after your outing on the links, Sunflower Hills Golf Course's bucket of range balls (a $4 value) supplies enough practice shots to perfect a mean power drive or a satisfying chip shot.

Skate World offers a family-friendly venue for active adults and equally restless kids to spend a day swiftly circling a smooth, polished rink. Speedy swivelers can strap on their choice of regular, speed, or inline skates, and take the floor with siblings, friends, or first dates, wondering whether or not to quote Xanadu. Post-skate, tired gliders can rest weary feet and refuel internal engines with a barrage of buttered popcorn. A healthy form of exercise for all ages, roller-skating can help languid loafers get back on their feet and remind them what it feels like to wear shoes again.

Q&A with Megan Thieman, Co-owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Each month we run a challenge to keep clients coming in, such as coming to class 25 times in one month to earn a free T-shirt. We change each class, so if you go to a specific class more than once that week, it will be different. Also, we have a variety of classes, so if our clients don't like one style, there are many more from which to choose.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Free monthly measurements occur every month to show improvements and body change. We also offer help with nutrition guidance.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?
We call ourselves a fitness boutique. We offer a variety of classes with fun, energetic, and motivational instructors that keep clients having fun and laughing while sweating and burning calories all in one awesome hour.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Sweat studio comes with a warning label: it becomes an addiction. We have a very welcoming environment and offer a variety of classes suitable for both beginning and advanced students.

The ice in Kansas City Ice Center's newly renovated rink accumulates blade scratches from skaters of all stripes, including hockey players and two of the most revered figure-skating clubs in the U.S. Throughout the year, the facility acts as a practice arena for those clubs as well as a classroom for nonprofessional skaters. Both children and adults master techniques during Learn to Skate programs, and aspiring slap shooters strengthen their grasp on competitive fundamentals during Learn To Play Hockey programs. In addition to lessons, the center also hosts special events, such as birthday parties and on-ice reenactments of The Great Banana Peel Spill of 1908.
