During her more than 15 years in the fitness industry, studio owner Andrea Powers has obtained certifications in yoga, spinning, personal training, and lifestyle coaching. Now with her own studio, Andrea, alongside husband and fellow instructor John, leads an experienced group of staff members who specialize in varied practices such as yoga therapy and Pilates.

Daily inspections of Zoom Ziplines? four lines by staff members ensure safe, smooth trips for all customers who meet height and weight requirements. During two-hour trips, customers cross a suspension bridge on foot and fly down four ziplines that stretch up to 1,500 feet at 35-miles-per-hour, breathing in mountain air and taking in stunning vistas. The course?s tandem ziplines allow friends to race or merely enjoy side-by-side views of the lake, local wildlife, and clouds playfully contorting themselves into the shapes of former presidents.

Spend an entire afternoon crawling on your belly over rocks and dashing between bunkers with the whiz of paint-filled capsules humming past your ears. Then open fire and decimate enemies, friends, or co-workers in a splatter of color. New Breed Paintball has more than six fields stocked with old tires, barrels, heaps of logs, and wall remnants that challenge fleet feet, sharp eyes, and trigger fingers to work together. A castle field allows paint-slingers to study the forces of wind-resistance and splatter from a tall turret and within weathered, loggy walls. Click here to see photos of fields and paintballers in action. Be sure to dress appropriately: the paint washes out of clothing, but you're going to get really dirty, no matter how gifted a sharpshooter you may be.

The Sing With Me curriculum stretches back to the late 19th century, when a duo of sisters and early-education researchers composed the tune that would eventually become "Happy Birthday to You." Donating the popular song's royalties to a foundation, the song eventually financed the research of Ken Guilmartin, who was pursuing the role of music in early cognitive development. Teaming up with fellow researcher Lili Levinowitz, Guilmartin founded Music Together LLC, a system of musical learning that allowed kids from birth to age 7 and their parents to access the joys of music together in a fun, supportive environment. Although not every child is destined for a career as a concert pianist, Sing With Me’s teachers start from the philosophy that all children have some innate musical sense and can be taught to sing in tune, move rhythmically, and distinguish a recorder from a Charleston Chew.
