The trainers at Art of Strength eschew newfangled machines. Instead, they employ only fitness tools that have stood the test of time: weight balls, ropes, logs, sandbags, and boxes. Undulation training with heavy ropes challenges strength and endurance, and kettlebells work the body as a whole and torch calories. Instructors also employ vintage progression weight-training exercises, which leave patrons as strong as ancient warriors or the guys who had to push ancient warriors’ strollers.

Chunky's Cinema Pub has been mixing the polished glimmer of modern technology with the gauzy glow of yesteryear for almost two decades. Eight screens mingle first-run blockbusters with themed throwback classics catering to children of the ’50s or ’80s. There, in the glow of the previews, is another testament to the melding of time—a contemporary dinner-and-a-movie setup brings with it the nostalgia of old-school drive-ins. Instead of traditional cinema chairs, individual cushy Lincoln Continental surround communal dinner tables, and the seats roll and recline to let guests maximize their comfort and customize their sightlines as they catch the onscreen action and pretend to be backseat drivers. At their tables, American pub snacks and entrées from the extensive menu spread out, combining movies with burgers, quesadillas, and steak tips.

While the theater blends old with new, Chunky's Bio Truck zooms into the future with a gas tank full of the 100% trans-fat-free canola oil used for cooking in the kitchen. The bio-fuel reduces the truck's greenhouse emissions and helps to decrease its carbon footprint, spreading an eco-conscious message to the community.

In addition to a dozen pool tables where fierce, steady-handed competitors and casual players can knock cues, Shooters boasts 10 HDTVs, dartboards, and a full bar with a draft beer selection. Sporting spectators can belly up to the industrial-style bar and watch the game or Mixed Martial Solitaire tournament while tipping back a 16-ounce glass of Bud Light ($2.50), Newcastle ($4), Guinness ($4.50), or Blue Moon ($4). Otherwise, take your drink to the billiards area and test your sharksmanship in a game of pool on one of Shooters’ clean, well-maintained tables ($5 per hour per person, $20 per hour for unlimited players). Shooters stays open until the film-noir hours of night, so newbie players will have all night to finish their first game.

Self Awakening Yoga owner Barbara Sterling describes its mission as guiding students toward a sense of balance that helps them be present in their own lives. Glossy, eco-friendly bamboo floor spans 1,900 square feet of airy studio space, whose white walls are painted with large-scale lotuses and Eastern designs. The studio fosters a community atmosphere by lending books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs to students for use at home.

The studio?s instructors have a variety of reasons for coming to the practice of yoga, whether it was recommended by a doctor after an injury, the solution to physical stress from marathon running or rugby, or the life-changing vocation of a close friend. Consequently, they teach classes and workshops that address a variety of needs through a spectrum of yoga styles, including Vinyasa, heated Vinyasa, prenatal, restorative, and gentle. Memberships and private lessons are also available to let students adjust the frequency and individual attention of their own curricula.

Enhancing Mother Nature's spiritual flow, Green Tea Yoga energizes chakras and enlivens aspiring yogis with a rotating schedule of seasonal 60-, 75-, or 90-minute classes. Green Tea Yoga's experienced instructors guide twisters and toners through a series of poses to help to strengthen postures and limber up limbs. EarthSky yoga, a moderate-intensity class, brims with Vinyasa flow techniques such as bending, stretching, and controlled breathing. Students in search of a more intense course can slide into a Forrest yoga session, and moms-to-be can partake in a prenatal course or the Momaste class, designed to help to relieve stress and shake off lingering fears of toddlers taking over the world. Occasional children’s classes are also offered throughout the year.

On his way to work one day, Andre Boucher spotted a hot air balloon, and on a whim he decided to follow it. He met it where it landed, and the aircraft's pilot offered to take Andre up for a ride. Ever since he was young, Andre had been fascinated by aviation, but airsickness and a codependent relationship with gravity always prevented him from enjoying it firsthand. But as he felt the basket drifting with the wind instead of battling against it, Andre knew he had finally found a way to experience flight. He has since acquired more than 23 years of professional experience, even lending his expertise to an elaborate promotional flight for Pixar's balloon-based film Up.

Andre now captains A&A Balloon Rides, LLC, where colorful carriages lift patrons between 500 and 2,000 feet above the lakes, treetops, and fields of New Hampshire. Guests can arrange private or group flights, and they can set up flown or tethered rides for school events, company picnics, or aerial-photography sessions, the latter of which can finally prove that birds fly on hoverboards.
