For more than 35 years, guests of Courthouse Fitness have conquered every hindrance to personal health, taking advantage of a multilayered approach that addresses fitness, diet, and broader facets of well being. Beyond basic features such as weight training, cardiovascular equipment, and immobile floors that force walking, membership grants access to more than 320 group fitness classes that populate each week's schedule, integrating practices such as Pilates and yoga along with aqua Zumba and Jazzercise. Courthouse Fitness's personal trainers follow the philosophy that being fit means being empowered to embark on any kind of adventure you want. A core tenet within that philosophy is the belief in fun. The staff does not emphasize a rating system or hierarchy, instead evaluating progress in terms of whether clients become more able to experience an enjoyably active life. Onsite childcare providers take care of young ones while parents work out, and many youth activities also keep kids busy, including swimming and special-needs dance classes. Courthouse Fitness is also part of a network of 70 clubs in the Pacific Northwest; members can work out at those facilities as guests when on the road.
Led by 2009 Northwest League Championship-winning manager Tom Trebelhorn, the Volcanoes have shaken awake their pitching, batting, and catching muscles and plan to explode on their opponents during the 2011 season. The Volcanoes are a Class-A affiliate of the 2010 World Series champion San Francisco Giants, with seven former Volcanoes having played in last year's championship games, including Pablo Sandoval, Sergio Romo, National League Rookie of the Year Buster Posey, and two-time Cy Young Award-winner Tim Lincecum. This Groupon is good for one ticket to Diamond Club lower-box-level seating and admission to the climate-controlled VIP Diamond Club, which resides directly behind home plate for convenient psyching-out of the opposing team through philosophical Cartesian debates while they wait in the on-deck circle.
The workplace can be a source of stress for anyone. That's why licensed massage therapist Karl Jensen carts his portable massage chair to his clients’ offices or homes to unwind knotted muscles with 15-minute bursts of massage for groups of 4 to 12 people. When not on the move, he parks his equipment in a private treatment room, where clients relax on a massage table as he paints relaxation across physical canvases with gentle Swedish strokes. He also hunts down extra-stubborn muscles with deep-tissue techniques and integrates a number of styles to create custom massages.

Greenbelt Land Trust protects and preserves native habitats and picturesque landscapes to preserve natural spaces and connect people to the natural world. With more than 700 members, the organization aims to create a wide swath of green land, including farmland, forest, and meadowland, that is easily accessible for local residents. Greenbelt Land Trust currently owns more than 1,500 acres in the midvalley and continually works to acquire new properties with natural areas in need of protection. It carefully plans the restoration process when necessary, and links its properties with public spaces and parks to facilitate recreation and create wildlife corridors. Greenbelt Land Trust’s stewardship staff works in the field, restoring wetland, savanna, and prairie landscapes to their native conditions, and its outreach team conducts public workshops on invasive-species management and invites classes onto the land to research its natural inhabitants.
Oregon Fishing Club holds the keys to outdoor adventure. The organization has access to 17 river locations, 13 camping properties, and 20 private lakes and ponds. Ample fish swim beneath the water every day of the year, perhaps steelhead or salmon depending on the specific location. All an angler needs to do is tie a lure and cast a line. When not fishing themselves, Oregon Fishing Club's team works to maintain their properties as scenic locations to pitch a tent, have a picnic, or have an imaginary picnic.
Wildlife Safari's 600-acre park contains more than four miles of winding grounds for guests to catch up-close glimpses of its inhabitants—more than 600 wild animals from Africa, Asia, and the Americas. What's more is that they can do it all from the comfort of their car. Through the windshield, families can view bison, zebras, and giraffes roaming the wide-open surroundings, living in harmony with other exotic wildlife. Founded by Frank Hart in 1972, the park has helped to protect endangered species while educating the public about them and their important roles in the fragile ecosystem. Visitors can also make arrangements for private and personalized animal encounters, as well as visit the safari village zoo, botanical gardens, and gift shop.
Jack-o’-lanterns have the most radiant faces, and not just because they have actual flames backlighting their smiles. The radiance also comes from a pumpkin’s salutary blend of vitamin C, antioxidants, and enzymes. Hence the key ingredient in the botanical facial and peel at Cosmos Déjà Vu Salon. This inventive approach to skincare exemplifies the care and attention the salon’s licensed aesthetician, Alison, lends to her clients’ faces. For her half-dozen facials, she calls upon other natural ingredients such as seaweed and honey to exfoliate and cleanse visages. Alison also performs a full menu of makeup services, including bridal packages and tutorials for students eager to kick their daily routines up a notch.
