Curt "Rigger" Mordus, a state-certified firearm instructor, and his wife Cori Knight, a deputy sheriff, organized their training team by selecting instructors with backgrounds in special forces and law enforcement. Together, they share their expertise and which eye they prefer to squint with in Riggers Arms' classes, which range from the NRA basic-pistol-shooting course to the advanced tactical multigun course. They also tailor classes exclusively for women and youth. Though Curt and Cori occasionally host open shooting at Rigger Arms' academy, they operate a training-first facility that welcomes civilians, military professionals and the police.

Prolific golf-course-design company Love Enterprises and Associates—which counts 1997 PGA Champion Davis Love III as a principal—orchestrated Anderson Creek Golf Club's classic layout. The course maintains a strict adherence to upkeep, and in 2008, Golf Digest rewarded its efforts with a prestigious 4.5-star rating and an oversize lollipop.

Today, the course showcases a verdant path of rolling fairways, groves of longleaf pine trees, and water features that come into play on at least six holes. A traditional course by design, only twice do fairways run directly parallel to each other, instead leading golfers on two roundabout loops. On the par 3 fourth hole, golfers must blast a 205-yard tee shot over water while hoping that the green accepts a visit without demanding that golfers remove their shoes before entering.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 7,215 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 75.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 144 from the back tees * Five sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Utilizing the same technology used to train military skydivers, SkyVenture re-creates the pulse-racing plunge of a free-fall through an enclosed vertical wind tunnel. Blasting air up in a seamless vertical column, SkyVenture's wind tunnel creates a flight chamber of smooth wall-to-wall airflow that grants you the temporary gift of flight without arm enchantments or the risk of melting waxen wings. Prior to liftoff participants receive video and personal instruction, then don their gear for two minute-long flights—the equivalent of three skydives from 13,000 feet or one ejection from Mount Olympus.

Heather Rossio thinks confidence is sexy. That’s why she founded Studio X Pole Fitness—to help women to feel comfortable in their own skin. Here, experienced instructors show students of all levels how to move their bodies with power and grace. Intro to Pole sessions acquaint first-time twirlers with metallic dance partners through basic stretches, grips, and noninvasive icebreakers. Students can then move on to Beginners Pole courses that teach simple spins and transitions, as well as strength training and calorie-torching floor work. The staff recommends that attendees take at least two basic courses before graduating to Intermediate Pole's lessons on climbing the pole, sitting on the pole, and prepping for upside-down inversions. Advanced Pole classes—at the top tier of the pole pantheon—ready tricks, inversions, and spins for gravity-defying routines or actual moonwalks. Additional classes include Chair X-Fit, which tightens the core, hips, and thighs in 50-minutes sessions, and cardio-packed, dance-heavy Zumba classes. To glide and shimmy effortlessly and comfortably, guests are encouraged to don form-fitting shorts and tank tops.

More than 8,000 square feet of space comprise RedPoint, a climbing gym set in a renovated warehouse. Nearly every inch has been set aside for towering climbing walls and exercise equipment to help climbers shore up their skills.

Within these confines, a team of instructors is on hand to teach the skills needed to conquer the facility’s tricky bouldering routes. They can also teach the fundamentals of belaying, which will help you to scale any of the more than 30 onsite climbing stations for top roping, lead climbing, or washing windows on the state capitol building. Back at ground level, you can tone your physique on pull-up bars, rowing machines, and Olympic weights as well as in CrossFit classes, which work on building core strength and overall fitness. The facility also hosts various kid-focused activities such as lock-ins, birthday parties, and corporate retreats for mountain goats.
