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.
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.

Jody Minhas and her husband, Paul, had a dream to combine their skills as a motivational speaker and martial artist, respectively, to empower and inspire women. To bring this dream to fruition, they opened a women-only kickboxing studio designed to help ladies not only get fit but also gain self-confidence.
Today, their Ultimate Kickboxing trainers lead groups through a training system that starts off with a warm-up regimen before incorporating calisthenics, kickboxing, and conditioning into the mix. Students strike protective pads during the no-contact classes, which incorporate elements of muay thai to work out the entire body, including muscles that tend to be ignored in traditional workouts. Ultimate Kickboxing also offers personal training, which can be tailored to fit all manner of goals, such as losing weight, learning self-defense, or body slamming a rhinoceros.
As its name implies, MovieTime outfits its clients with countless classic films and new releases, though its technicians also fine-tune computers, consoles, and media devices of all types and models. Shoppers entertain themselves with Hindi and Punjabi comedies, romances, dramas, and thrillers, or convert dusty VHS tapes and 35mm slideshows into easy-to-access DVDs with customized menus and music sequences. Electronics whizzes clean viruses from infected systems, hook computers into networks, and recover lost data from damaged servers, tapes, or hard drives. Gaming experts render nearly any modern-generation console as good as new—bringing motion sensing capabilities back to the Wii through laser-lens replacements, or removing an Xbox's Red Ring of Death through a careful curse-lifting procedure.
Target Pro Archery's president, holder of the NCCP's Level 1 and 2 coaching certifications, leads a team of experienced archery instructors. Though their primary focus is on beginner- and intermediate-level classes, they cover similar topics in all their sessions, such as the basics of shooting with a bow and the proper way to pronounce "yeoman."
Many of the centre's coaches also teach outside of class, helping customers navigate a pro-shop stocked with bows, arrows, and accessories. To expand its space, Target Pro Archery often partners with Peel Archery Club: a 24-hour training facility dedicated to the arts of compound and recurve archery. Members of Canada's National Team may often be found practicing on the indoor range's 3D targets.
