Bow River and its adjacent aquatic arteries join ponds and marshland at Golf Canada Calgary Centre, creating aquatic layouts for the Les Furber–designed, 9-hole, par-3 course and the 18-hole, par-72 all-grass putting course. Hole 9 on the putting course even challenges players with an island green, and those who make it there without getting wet can pretend to be castaways even after the sun has set, thanks to stadium-style lighting.

To gear up for the courses’ myriad challenges, golfers can buckle down at a heated, lighted driving range that ranked in Golf Range Magazine’s 2010 Top 100 Golf Ranges in America. The swingers practice their long game from 52 enclosed tee boxes, aiming at target greens or clouds shaped like flag pins. Nearby, putters take the stage at a short-game practice area with a 4,000-square-foot putting green, a 3,500-square-foot pitching and chipping green, and greenside and fairway practice bunkers. Golfers can also hone their game in high-definition golf simulators, which unlock the fairways of legendary courses such as Pebble Beach and Pinehurst, or enroll in lessons with PGA of Canada pros led by award-winning instructor Jay Myren.

British Columbia local and Lakers player Steve Nash created his fleet of namesake Fitness World & Sports Clubs to honour the tenets of healthy living. The classes at both Fitness World and Sports Club locations are taught by engaging instructors who impart students with methods for getting fit that don’t involve traditional livestock lifting. Group fitness trainers lead exercisers through Bball Blast's stability-ball training, ICE indoor-cycling intensives, and Cardio Core's combinations of step, cardio kickboxing, and abdominal exercises. The Nash Smash class uses full-body metabolic training to sternly badger moping muscles into action, and Women on Weights builds toned musculature by pitting females against leaden opponents. Personal training sessions fit workouts for each client, tailoring them to individual's goals and personal theme song.

The amenities at each club differ—the Burnaby location boasts a swimming pool and spacious whirlpool. The staff strives to create a healthy environment for members and the earth alike, with floors made from sustainable bamboo and locker panels build with recycled car tires.

Originally a 9-hole course upon its opening in 1978, community-owned The Bridges at Claresholm expanded into an 18-hole course in 2005 after designer Les Furber spent four years expertly crafting a back nine. Four tee boxes and attachable Gadget arms precede each hole, allowing patrons to adjust their distance to the green and driving angle to better avoid obstacles such as 12 water hazards. The Bridges at Claresholm also employs golf expert Lyle Broderson to offer private, semiprivate, or group lessons to golfers looking to make improvements, and hosts tournaments and male, female, and gopher leagues. Additionally, an on-site pro shop supplies participants with essential gear such as balls, clubs, and golf-suitable clothing, and Putter's Restaurant & Catering in the facility's clubhouse satiates visitors with weekly specials such as the Friday-night all-you-can-eat fish fry.

Stocked with locally sourced ingredients, Dinner Factory decorates dining-room tables with a rotating selection of creative meals custom assembled by each customer in its culinary workshop. After Dinner Factory's prep team chops and minces its preordained grocery list into celebratory confetti shreds, household heads can flock to its community kitchen to fashion a family feast in around 30 minutes from a monthly menu of 14 entree options serving four to six portions each. Customers equipped with detailed station instructions enlist hormone-free meat and poultry from farms within 100 miles to anchor their meal creations, such as coconut crusted chicken with rice and snap peas or the summer-favourite Hawaiian teriyaki chicken burgers. Customers can also fill fridges and freezers with refined and healthful stovetop staples, such as seafood risotto, a collection of prawns, scallops, and crabmeat combined with a white wine stock, onion, saffron, crushed garlic, and rice. In addition to alleviating supper anxiety, Dinner Factory also caters to healthful homes by allowing customers to leave out any undesired ingredients from each recipe, and includes gluten-free alternatives and whole-wheat bread and pasta.

Inside their "no-frills" training facility, CrossFit Machine Shop owners Angie McNally and Dean Eckel merge several fitness certifications with a shared drive to redefine both their own and their clients' physical limits. Their emphasis on functional CrossFit actions rejects complex equipment for a challenging-yet-common-sense mix of core work, plyometrics, power lifting, and circuit training. During these intense workouts—as well as personal-training services and fitness classes—Angie and Dean stress proper form and a disciplined state of mind for sculpting tougher physiques and avoiding deep-fried sticks of butter. They blast music to spur reps onward amid walls bearing colourful graffiti; however, their shop's industrial interior and lack of kettle-bell-shaped whoopee cushions speak to the duo’s no-nonsense methods.
