  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

ASTAR and JC video swing analysis, Ag studio, and GC2 with HMT launch monitors provide visual reference as well as ball-flight feedback.

  • Get In Shape For Women Acton
    To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical. The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
