Colonial Fitness' technicolored gym boasts a battalion of exercise equipment and energetic group classes to motivate guests of all ages and abilities to reach their fitness goals. The certified trainers lead high-energy cardio-fitness classes to pump up muscles and heart rates alongside relaxing yoga classes to increase flexibility and decrease stress. Guests face off on racquetball courts or hit home runs on the basketball courts, toning muscles and burning calories while enjoying some friendly competition. As adults push their bodies' limits, they can rest assured while sending their children off to cavort in the child activity center under the staff's watchful eye. To rejuvenate after a calorie-torching workout, guests can unwind during a massage or tanning session, refuel with a protein-packed smoothie at the Hydration Station, or relax in the sauna and steam rooms.
The Zombie Mud Run finally gives people an incentive to exercise—the survival of their species. Amid forested trails, muddy creeks, and challenging obstacles, participants of this post-apocalyptic 5K face off to either save the human race or feast on human flesh, respectively. Clad in a flag-football belt with three flags that represent their brains, heart, and entrails, human participants race to get themselves and their fellow living athletes to the Green Zone, which grants salvation in the form of food, water, music, and beer. Meanwhile, costumed zombies—each of whom are either slow-moving “creepers” or fast-moving “leapers”—positioned along the race course pursue the humans to devour their organs or simply return that contact lens they dropped a mile ago. Human runners who reach the Green Zone with at least one of their flags survive.

The Railroad House's corner bar appeal and faithful airing of favored sporting events helped it earn the honor of being named best neighborhood bar in 2009 by Berks County Living magazine. Their 8 oz. Black Angus burgers beg for customization, with an abundance of complimentary extras that cover everything from spicy patty rubs to extra meats, cheeses, sauces, and more. The menu also offers chicken and cheese steak sandwiches and a variety of specialty hot sandwiches like the Country breaded steak with gravy, the fried cod fish, and the hot dog. In addition to televisions showcasing the latest backgammon tournaments, their bar also has non-sports-related entertainment aplenty, with trivia challenge events, open mic nights, and live music performances.
Yoga Inlet’s highly skilled instructors, all of whom are professionally certified and one of whom is a physical therapist, aim to help their students spark vitality and short-circuit stress. The studio’s specialty style is Svaroopa, a gentle type of Hatha that focuses on alignment and uses support over the course of up to 14 poses per class. Yoga+Plus, a more classic Hatha style, focuses on the relationship between movement and breath while increasing students’ strength, flexibility, and ability to catch butterflies in jars. Tai chi/qigong is also available. Choose from 17 class times in a given week; the studio provides all class essentials, so no one need bring their own equipment.
Housed in what was once a sprawling textile compound that produced hosiery, The Works at Wyomissing hosts kinetic family outings in a large, historical space. Downstairs, a mammoth game room houses popular video games, such as a sports simulator, Dance Dance Revolution, and diminutive bowling lanes for children.
Upstairs, the Ballocity action center combines the can't-miss fun mix of playground balls, slides, climbing tubes, foam-ball launchers, and grandma's china. Still-remaining historical details add character to the building, including an entrance to 1.5 miles worth of tunnels that once channeled supplies and carried elaborate tin-can phone networks between factory buildings.
