As the mother of three children, Tara started taking Zumba classes as a way to get back in shape. Not only did she quickly see results, she also had fun moving her body to the Latin-inspired beats. Now a certified Zumba instructor, Tara introduces others to this upbeat fitness craze during one-hour classes.
At Ultimate Sports America, accomplished coaches help clients of all ages and skill levels reach their athletic potential. A commitment to safety, sportsmanship, and teamwork guides group activities, which range from soccer camps for kids and teens to fitness boot camps for adults. Staffers can arrange one-on-one training for nearly any of the sports, which also include baseball, softball, and lacrosse. Position-specific coaching helps footballers hone specific skills as they tackle the gridiron with gusto, and event-specific training inspires track-and-field athletes to run faster, jump higher, and ride a javelin farther than they ever thought possible. Filled with batting cages, turf fields, and an Apex pole-vaulting station, the 50,000-square-foot facility provides ample opportunities for swinging bats or sprinting toward end zones. The space can also host sport-specific clinics and birthday parties that pair hearty pizzas with dodge-ball games that aim to remove party hats by force.
Licensed podiatrist Dr. Raymond M. Maimone has helped heal a lot of feet over the course of three decades in private practice. Dr. Maimone has always worked to stay at the forefront of podiatric care, arming his team with advanced lasers. The units often reduce a patient’s need for surgery, unlike a decision to put a trampoline under a basketball goal. Aided by these lasers or traditional podiatry, Dr. Maimone can treat sprained ankles, fractures, and many other foot disorders.
Designed by course architect Geoffrey Cornish—who has designed more than 230 courses—Bowling Green Golf Club blankets the tree-lined terrain of a former dairy farm with a challenging, 6,863-yard golf course. Immersed in a network of rolling hills topped with tall red pines and oaks, the par-72 design provides a scenic escape more enjoyable than burrowing one’s head into a potted plant. Dense tree lines play a prominent role throughout the entire course, and the back nine also runs along native ponds and wetlands that loom near fairways and greens. To help golfers excel in the wooded layout without the use of a chainsaw, Bowling Green Golf Club offers golf lessons and clinics for players of all abilities.
At The Grill Room, guests can enjoy a casual atmosphere of drinks and inventive twists on traditional grill dishes. While digging into grilled filet mignon or Mediterranean chicken with penne pasta and sun-dried tomatoes, patrons can pause to take in views of the rolling hills and give nicknames to each pine needle in the forest.

Inside a pink-painted studio, instructors invite ladies of all builds and backgrounds to forget their inhibitions during group fitness classes, which range from Zumba to yoga. They combine muscle-sculpting routines and festive energy by hosting several music-based lessons, including the nightclub-like Zumba in the Dark. Additionally, Fuze Wellness Studio's massage therapists and life coaches balance out fast-paced routines by cultivating relaxation and mental calm. Through all this, the staff aims to help students tap into inner and outer strength, as well as empower them to feel secure in their bodies, a goal that is far easier than empowering them to feel secure in their lederhosen.
Few yoga studios can say that they've created their own styles of yoga, but at Highland Yoga, Anelyn and Stephen Tortorello did just that. With the help of their instructors, these yogis developed Yogacarya, which marries Western yoga postures with the introspection, meditation, and self-realization encouraged by the Yoga Sutras. The open, clean studio hosts a rotating gallery of local artists' paintings and photography to inspire reflection.
Their 32 weekly classes—available in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels—also embrace the widely popular Vinyasa and Hatha methods along with the lesser-known Kripalu and Kundalini yogas. To further foster mind-body connections, the studio's licensed massage therapists ease muscular stress, taut muscles, and uptight grizzly bears with myofascial, Swedish, and Thai yoga bodywork.
