The whoosh of baseballs against protective screens and leather mitts drifts through Extra Innings’ 11,000-square-foot facility even when rain is pouring down and baseball season seems far away. Athletes training for all levels of play can shut themselves in under the black meshing of eight multiuse batting and pitching tunnels, where they crush ball after ball to sharpen the minute movements of their swing. The tunnels, one of which is equipped with ProBatter ATEC7600 simulator, are all equipped with L screens and ping machines and are ideal for practicing sliders. A staff of current and former professional, college, and high-school athletes offers step-by-step instruction and on baseball- and softball-specific strength conditioning. In private lessons and group clinics, Extra Innings puts students of all ages on the path toward big-league skills such as hitting the curve and spitting sunflower seeds into the shape of a beautiful sunset.

At G6 Airpark, patrons of all ages bound safely between the open-jump arena and sports-based courts that comprise the 12,000 square-foot indoor trampoline park. Interconnected trampolines bordered by neon-green pads stretch from wall to wall, encouraging guests to defy gravity's demands as they spring into the air. On the dodge-ball court, jumpers fly while skirting air-filled orbs flung from opposing teams, and on the basketball court they vault over the rim, slam dunking. Guests practice more elaborate aerial flips and full-speed hugging exercises into the foam-filled trick zone, whereas the children-only area provides a safe haven for little ones. In between leaps and bounds, bouncers halt for a pizza or shaved ice from the café, which can also supply party fare for energy-burning, activity-filled birthday parties.

At Zumba Funfitness classes, instructor Stacy Harstad shepherds students through that initial period they students sometimes feel silly, focusing first on learning footwork before advancing to upper-body moves. The booming rhythms of Gloria Estefan and the Kumbia Kings blend with Maroon 5 and Pitbull as the sonic backdrop for each class. Stacy conducts each class as if she were leading an orchestra—using sweeping hand gestures and flashing lights—and encourages students to modify maneuvers to suit their own style and speed. Zumba students should avoid wearing workout attire that restricts movement, such as skinny jeans or a straitjacket.

Journey to Young's Vanco Golf Range in Vancouver, Washington, for a 40-minute, round-changing golf makeover and a bountiful bucket of superior-quality golf balls to whack your new talents upon. Jack has more than 20 years of experience teaching golfists who golf at all skill levels, from beginners to tournament champions. The lesson (a $50 value) takes place in a covered outdoor range where Jack's diligent eye, step-by-step coaching, and fancy video and computer equipment break down every aspect of your swing for careful analysis; the video swing analysis will allow comparison to the swings of over 200 golf professionals. Although he's yet to discover an effective way to teach his trajectory-altering telepathy to students, his before-the-strike tutoring works wonders, slicing hooks and hooking slices into fairway-splitting straight-shots.
