Inside the Full Tilt CrossFit facility, a stockpile of barbells, kettlebells, rowing machines, and rings is ready for action. Upon completion of an Intro to CrossFit personal-training course, exercisers can challenge themselves to work toward their fitness goals at any hour of the day or night. Patrons needing guidance can rely on certified coaches, who correct technique and offer encouragement while clients perform the Workout of the Day, or WOD. Each WOD brims with a new assortment of exercises designed to build cross-functional fitness. These exercises mimic everyday tasks in participants' lives, such as getting out of chairs and helping truck drivers flip tires all the way home if their 18-wheeler breaks down.

In the year 1513, Ponce de Leon arrived on the shores of Florida in search for the Fountain of Youth. He never discovered it, but the team of experts at 1513 Anti-Aging & Weight Loss have continued his search by specializing in the modern version of the fountain: hormone-replacement therapy. By boosting men's testosterone levels and women's estrogen levels to those of their youth, their treatments help minimize signs of aging, brighten complexions, and boost energy levels. Complementary weight-loss programs, meanwhile, catalyze the process, with regimens tailored to each patient's goals and medical history.

Although comparable in length and difficulty, River Pointe Golf Club's front and back nines present two distinct challenges. The front eases golfers into the round with a traditional layout interspersed with only occasional water hazards. The second act could be traversed as easily by canoe as it is by cart. Built around wetlands, the back puts water into play on the majority of holes, where golfers will often catch views of passing alligators, turkeys, foxes, and other wildlife.
