  • Palomo Archery
    Palomo Archery's certified instructors teach bow beginners the fundamentals of safely aiming and shooting feathered projectiles from the comfort of a brightly lit indoor shooting range. Each one-hour lesson emphasizes various safety precautions as arrow slingers learn the different parts of a bow's anatomy, various aiming strategies, and how to shoot an arrow without injuring any cartoon merry men in the vicinity. After each step in the tutorial, students cull fletching from quiver to practice incorporating the demonstrated technique themselves. Students can show up with nothing more than a pair of itchy quiver fingers, but seasoned archers, like amateur astronauts, are encouraged to bring their own equipment. To prevent mishaps, shooters should avoid wearing open-toe shoes, baggy clothing, or arrow pheromones.

  • Core Studio
    Though Core Studio's workouts blend elements of Pilates, resistance-training, and strength-training, the company's entire program has three core methods: SPX fitness, Core Barre, and RealRyder indoor cycling. Each of the studio's instructors are masters of both. The Core SPX workout has a specific science designed to work muscles toward their limits and the heart toward victory. Armed with this knowledge, the instructors motivate clients to sweat through flexibility and core-strength-enhancing workouts in four classes: Core SPX, Core Barre, Core Cycle, and Core 30/30, a blend of SPX and Cycle. SPX workouts use the Megaformer, a state-of-the-art Pilates reformer that relies on spring resistance, whereas Cycle classes use the RealRyder indoor cycle?a stationary bike that isn't actually stationary. As it turns and tilts with riders, mimicking the motions of a real bike ride, the machine encourages functional movements, such as pedaling faster to escape a pack of invisible wolves.

  • Balance Center
    Jean Couch—author of The Runner’s Yoga Book, producer of the DVD Your Pain-Free Life, and founder of Balance Center—started her career by studying healthy populations of people throughout the world. She learned that they tended not to experience back and joint pain as pervasively as does the United States population. From her studies, Couch believes that this pain can be eased with correct posture. She and her instructors animate that research at Balance Center by leading sessions based on the movement patterns of people without back and joint pain, just as adults who want to look cool base their movements on the angsty slump of teenagers. The teachers lead introductory, ongoing, and intensive classes in posture correction for sitting and walking.
