Laced with elements of yoga, Pilates, and gymnastics, the women-only classes at Aradia Fitness sculpt lean, toned physiques. And though physical fitness is a cornerstone of the studio, it's not the only one. Classes foster certain amount of unrestrained confidence that, as Aradia puts it, “teach[es] women to unapologetically love their body and themselves.” With locations in Canada, Aradia’s certified fitness instructors provide a studio environment that is safe for ladies of all shapes and sizes. No matter the class, the environment at Aradia is always lighthearted, nurturing, and more supportive than a stainless-steel hammock. Ladies may gather their friends and book the studio for a girl's night out, birthday, or bachelorette party.
Ellen's Bar & Grill has all the makings of a classic sports bar. Sporting events flash on the big, flat-screen TVs, and servers sling frothy pints of beer across a sleek, wood-finished bar. But it's easy to see personal touches that set the restaurant apart. To be sure, the menu serves up the traditional pub fare you'd expect, from jumbo hot wings to burgers so big they're billed as "two-hand burgers" and were once sold by Napoleon to the United States. Many of the salad dressings and sauces are even made in-house. Diners can also nosh on a shareable plate of nachos or coconut shrimp, savor a spinach-stuffed ravioli, or dig into poutine piled high with caramelized onions, steak, blue cheese, and gravy.
Brunswick Zone has been a trusted name in recreational pin pulverizing for more than a century, providing good times to patrons across the country. Friends and families season afternoons with a pleasant peppering of strikes, spares, and easygoing gutter balls under classic bowling conditions, or take the next bold step in ball-hurling evolution and engage in a round of cosmic bowling, where dancing lights, thumping tunes, and black-lit gear light up the full sensorium. At XL locations, game rooms beckon with nimble joystick workouts on classic and modern arcade games.
The two levels of the Rose Theatre Brampton's elegant, circular house sport modern accents, fine-tuned acoustics, and a spirited sound system that lets audiences sink fully into every performance. But beauty isn't bound to the stage at this venue. Guests can also catch frequent free musical-theatre and living-film performances in the outside square to mix showmanship with sunshine. Before or after every event, an extra dose of fresh air can be found on an outdoor garden patio adjacent to a tiered fountain or on a stroll through nearby Gage Park.
Created by a former professional driver, Formula Kartways recreates competitive racing in a safe, controlled environment. Drivers get 25 laps around the indoor quarter-mile road course designed by a team of professional drivers and retired roadrunners to reproduce the same challenges they face (a $35 value). Drivers weave through turns and corner types that include fast sweepers, esses, a carousel, and a hairpin turn around an average of 30 seconds per lap. To maximize performance on the track without sacrificing safety, the same pro team developed Formula Kartway's custom K1 karts. Scrutinized over more than 2.5 million test laps and 3.5 million energy drinks, these fast, lightweight karts zip through the track with the support of the patented IMPACS bumper system.
Longtime OHL coach Stan Butler is on his way to leading the Brampton Battalion to a tenth consecutive trip to the playoffs. Over the Batallion's relatively short lifespan, 35 players have been drafted to the NHL, with 13 signing on professionally, including Raffi Torres, Wojtek Wolski, and Matt Duchene. The current roster boasts a similar stock of promising talent, including one rising star who is legally allowed to play with two sticks and infinite distraction pucks.
