Get some aggression out and work your lower back with ax-throwing!

Cincinnati Ax Throwing is located in West Chester. They also have a couple of sweet escape rooms (one has a zombie that chases you around, so you might be able to get away with calling that one a workout, too!). Before we went, I thought we'd be hurling axes one-handed. Turns out there's quite the strategy to it: Take the ax in both hands with your thumbs meeting in the middle, almost like you're swinging a golf club. Then you extend the ax behind your head, bend backward, thrust your body forward, let go of the ax and finish with your arms extended behind you. It took me a few tries to get it right, but once I did, I hit the target almost every time (I even got a bull's-eye once!). Most evenings and weekends are open -- you can go to their website to find a date and time and book your session. You can also book parties or corporate events (I'm totally having my birthday party there this year. It's also BYOB!). It's $28 per person if you choose a pre-scheduled public ax throwing. Private parties of six or more cost $20 apiece and need to be paid ahead of time.
