International Fitness' 48,000-square-foot facility boasts a bevy of fitness opportunities for clients of all ages, including group classes, athletic courts, and cardio and strength equipment. Guests can engineer their own health-boosting regimen from the gym's selection, opting to build lean muscle on TechnoGym equipment or sweat off stress during daily group classes, including Zumba, yoga, and boxing. As parents squeeze in a workout on cardio equipment or catch a pick-up game on the full-length basketball court, their kids can burn off excess energy in karate lessons or play under the watchful eyes of pro sitters in childcare. Serious athletes can sculpt physiques during personal-training sessions, and health-conscious exercisers can log their daily intake, count calories, and gush over their secret food crushes on the health club's virtual dietary journal.
Indian Lakes Golf Course's nine-hole course showcases a 3,027-yard labyrinth framed by the snow-capped peaks of the Owyhee Mountains. The par 35 course sports two sets of ladies' tees and two sets of men's tees to create a distinct front- and back-nine experience for players looking to schmooze their boss into letting them borrow the company caddy over an 18-hole round.
A staff of PGA pros presides over the grounds, which encompass a grass-tee driving range for lessons and practice sessions.

In pools heated to a comfortable 90 degrees, Aqua-Tots Swim School's experienced instructors pass their aquatic knowledge onto younger generations. Before taking to the waters, the team sorts prospective swimmers into one of eight swim levels along with similarly skilled and aged peers. Teachers work alongside the parents of infants and toddlers to practice water safety skills and other swimming fundamentals such as blowing bubbles and interpreting whale songs. More advanced swimmers, meanwhile, master different strokes and techniques, and teachers incorporate more advanced concepts and the rules of competitive swimming as their charges progress through the levels.
Dr. F. Todd Wortham—or “Dr. T,” as his patients call him—is so well trained in implantology, he finds installing replacement teeth to be fun. The dentist, who has more than 500 hours of continuing education in advanced dental techniques under his belt, has learned to be one with his work to such a degree that even the challenging procedures have become a joy.
Together with longtime colleague Dr. Rachel M. Deininger, Dr. T takes time to get to know each patient who comes through the door or scratches through the drywall. In addition to installing dental implants, the doctors treat periodontal disease, whiten teeth with custom bleaching trays, and fit patients for dentures.
