The veteran submerged seafarers at Sea Sports Scuba can instruct any landlubber on the basics of underwater breathing in a safe, welcoming environment. At each lesson, a wise, PADI-certified instructor will dish the fundamental tenets of the dive and marine astronomy. Students will dive into the provided gear and equipment before diving into a heated indoor pool for practice. In one 60- to 120-minute session, submariners will be primed to move on to more-advanced sunken adventures and confidently curse humanoid ancestors for voting to phase out gills.
Whether she's framing a sultry boudoir pose, an actor's headshot, a couple's wedding vows, or a proud high-school senior, Victoria Schklair keeps her eyes peeled for fleeting candid moments to capture on film.

When the trainer unveils a new workout of the day to her students, variety is key. CrossFit incorporates a healthy mix of exercises to keep things fresh and ensure that each person gets a full body workout. In each session, exercisers are encouraged to complete the workouts as quickly and intensely as they can, which means trusting oneself to put that extra oomph into each pull-up, kettlebell swing, squat, sprint, or vending-machine toss. The workouts can easily be adapted to all ages and fitness levels.

Bill Goudeket can trace the roots of his business career back to his parents and a swimming coach. After failing beginning swimming three times as a child, the owner of FINS persevered thanks to his parents' encouragement, eventually swimming competitively at age 12, qualifying for the 1968 Olympic Trials five years later, and training under Hall of Fame coach Don Easterling in college. Taking inspiration from his coach, Goudeket decided to share his love of the sport and become a competitive swimming coach, eventually opening FINS to expand his reach to first-time swimmers as well. Along with his family and his teaching staff, Goudeket works with students of all skill levels and ages, instilling skills that can be applied to recreational swimming, competitive swimming, and sneaking into meetings of the dolphin Illuminati.
Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf has two locations that encompass 18 holes apiece, with each course set aglow in neon and covered with exotic creatures. As they travel through the indoor facilities, each putter must navigate around wrecked pirate ships, shoot between stubby dinosaur legs, and wrest their clubs from the mouths of tigers in what typically amounts to a 35- to 60-minute round of golf. To accentuate the course's glowing artwork and scenery, golfers can opt to put on a pair of 3-D glasses. Beyond the neon greens, Shankz also features the Balladium and Ballaster game rooms, in which competitors fire Nerf balls from air cannons at targets and at each other to score points and ward off encroaching Nerf army tanks.
