Certified tennis guru Rusty Miller leads a team of professional instructors who mold players of all ages into pros. Rusty’s 25 years in the tennis business and several South California–area tennis-club holdings have culminated in this newly revamped club. Players volley back and forth on 11 championship hard courts before taking advantage of numerous amenities. From workouts in the fitness center to nighttime practices held on the eight lighted courts to equipment upgrades at the pro shop, Anaheim Hills Racquet Club is designed to improve all areas of play. Single members can retrieve lobs from the ball machine, engage other members for one-on-one hitting practice, or set up intense matches with court-savvy nonmembers, such as the white line from Pong.
Like a paperweight resting on a pile of love letters, this golf-course clubhouse nurtures romance while holding down the verdant, undulating Anaheim Hills. Sunday-brunch companions can clink chalices of champagne and scan a spread of delicacies from across the globe, including breakfast beloveds, such as eggs Benedict and belgian waffles, and cooked-to-order pastas and omelets. Alaskan king-crab legs preside over distinguished fleets of norwegian smoked salmon and jumbo shrimp as insubordinate oysters pile into half shells for a wild ride down tempestuous throat slides. Succulent cuts of carved-to-order prime rib and honey-cured ham sate carnivorous noshers, and blazing plates of bananas flambé employ heat to help finish off feasts, much like how flat-irons finish off hairdos and toaster ovens finish off plastic forks.
At CycleLab Fitness Studio, clients ride for miles and miles without ever stepping outside. The studio is outfitted with rows of Blade Ion bikes and a wall-to-wall photo mural of an road hedged by lush trees and mountains. Experienced spin instructors lead students through challenging sessions designed to improve physical fitness or focus on specific cycling goals. A high-tech system tracks each bike?s metrics and posts them on giant screens so students can see their rotations per minute and rank in the class. Daily classes are available morning, afternoon, and evening to accommodate all schedules.
On the weekend of November 14?16, 2014, gather at the Surefire Institute Firearms Fair for a variety of activities and events. Hop into an Airworks helicopter for a quick ride, or just watch as the choppers hoist members of the US Special Operations Command and the British SAS demonstrate a parachute jump. Meanwhile, vendors?including Glock and New Frontier Armory?and food trucks showcase their wares.
Across the grounds, fair-goers can watch some of the world's best sharpshooters in action. At the Surefire World Championships three-gun and multi-gun competitions take place in 16 stages, including bay stages, night stages, and outlaw field courses. But the activity isn't just for the pros. Live-fire ranges provide the chance to fire semi-automatic and automatic weapons, and Shoot the Bot uses robotic targets that charge at the player.
Instructors at The Bear Pit lead mixed-martial-arts—MMA—classes along with boot-camp workouts to build strength and tone muscles. The popular 60-minute boot camps combine cardio and strength conditioning while students punch heavy bags and perform body-weight exercises.
