Creative Fitness 24/7 prides itself on being a fully accessible neighborhood gym with top-notch equipment and supportive personal training. Patrons can breeze through its doors 24/7 and blast calories on a treadmill, tone muscles with weights, or swing across the facility's new monkey bars. They can also opt for one-on-one or small-group training or take a calorie-torching spin class, one of the most popular workouts in America, second only to bench-pressing bald eagles.

The trainers of Be Fit Performance, Inc. never fit in at big, corporate gyms, where, they felt, clients' needs often got lost in the hustle. So they decided to create an environment that values personal relationships and depth of training over the quantity of training. During one-on-one personal training sessions, they help students of all levels build strength and burn fat, with regular health assessments to measure their progress. They also challenge groups with high-intensity Be Fit eXtreme fitness classes.

From Tihonet Pond in Wareham or the sands of Onset Beach, paddlers push off into the beauty of the surrounding wilderness, navigating their kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards across the placid waters. Guided tours of Onset Bay lead kayakers through rivers, islands, hidden coves, and even fishing spots where those with licenses are free to cast their lines. Along the Weweantic and Sippican Rivers, tours present participants with the opportunities to get glimpses of local wildlife such as herons, egrets, and osprey.
