  • Flight Experience
    In the cockpit, amateur pilots guide their aircraft toward the destination of their choice, be it a familiar nearby airport or an exotic locale like the island airport of Hong Kong or the Alps-surrounded runways of Innsbruck, Austria. A highly trained instructor sits beside them, helping with any hiccups they may encounter. And thanks to 180-degree cockpit views, clients enjoy excellent sights?sunrises, sunsets, even banks of fog rolling in?between the highly technical takeoff and landing maneuvers. All told, it's an epic experience. It's also not totally real. In reality, the cockpit is part of Flight Experience's hyper-realistic flight-simulator version of the Boeing 737NG. It sits stationary on the ground throughout faux flights, allowing clients to learn the ropes of aviation without leaving the world of normal-sized snacks behind. In the pilot's seat, they learn to juggle controls for airspeed, altitude, and flight path, which, combined with the cockpit's lifelike vibrations and digital visuals, create a believable airborne experience.

  • Big Sticks Indoor Golf
    As one of the only PGA-recognized indoor golf facilities in Massachusetts, Big Sticks Indoor Golf provides many of the same skill-honing luxuries as a quality golf course. Here, visitors can develop consistent swing mechanics, practice their short or long game, and receive PGA-certified instruction?the only difference is they can do it all year round, even when it's snowing outside or the streets are running red with molten lava. Owner and PGA Class-A professional Terry Felty?an award-winning instructor and Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf Fitness Instructor?heads the facility's instructors, who utilize the latest technology to help improve scores for golfers of all skills and ages. ASTAR and JC video swing analysis, Ag studio, and GC2 with HMT launch monitors provide visual reference as well as ball-flight feedback. This is also evident in Big Sticks' use of high-tech simulators, which use stunning graphics to replicate some of the world's most renowned courses, including the TPC Scottsdale, Pebble Beach, and many more.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studios Boston
    Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

  • Empire Sports Club
    Rowing machines. Free weights. Pilates equipment. Treadmills. One could probably burn a few calories just by reading a list of Empire Sports Club's training arsenal. DIY exercisers of all ages can work through custom training regimens on strength and cardio machines before breaking things up with a game of racquetball. Empire Sports Club also has plenty of class instructors and personal trainers on-hand for guided workouts as well. Casey Castine applies her more than 15 years of dancing experience during group Zumba classes, while Kim Izzi draws on a BS in nutrition. The club's full-size boxing ring, meanwhile, serves as Tom Fallon's classroom. Mr. Fallon boasts a resume almost as impressive as his right hook; he won Golden Gloves in 1984 and 1985, back when the Earth's gravity was 10 times what it is today.
