CyberGolf Lessons' duo of veteran instructors smoothes out swings and divulges birdie-hunting wisdom at the Markham Golf Dome. The score-shaving syndicate pairs human expertise with modern golf refinements, utilizing video swing analysis that provides golfers with a visual aid to better understand instructors' feedback and determine their sand wedge's good side. After lessons, pupils have access to a Swingview! Pro profile that stores video captures of their unique motions, allowing them to compare them with a database of PGA Tour swings and chart their progress over time. CyberGolf also doles out rental clubs free of charge for use during lessons, saving beginners the hassle of buying new clubs or inventing the self-hitting golf ball.
At Regency Fitness, a staff of amicable trainers introduces new members to their 17,000-square-foot facility, stocked with TV-mounted Precor cardio machines, weight equipment, and free weights.

After workouts, steam rooms stand by to melt sore muscles and snowmen with poor judgment.
In 2000, Natasha Romero Medrano went to a salsa club for the first time and fell in love with the music and dance she encountered.

Elsewhere in the studio, instructors lead fitness-oriented Zumba classes, which get bodies moving with high-energy latin dance steps.

Bathed in the gentle glow of subdued, relaxing light, Impressions Day Spa’s talented staff deploys upwards of 20 years of industry experience as they lavish bodies in serenity-inducing services. The spa’s dedication to individualized care is evidenced in the lush private treatment rooms wherein aestheticians tailor treatments such as microdermabrasion and organic airbrush tanning to fit each patron’s skin type and accommodate comfort levels. Bolstering existing beauty remains a spa specialty, but Impressions' team of RMTs also perfects the art of stress erasing through treatments such as Swedish massage, which can help relieve trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from an ear by a street magician.
The trainers at Effective Kickboxing want to welcome everyone to their fitness classes, so clients don't already need to be so in shape that they get mistaken for minor-league athletes. Instead, instructors will work with clients to get them to a level of fitness they're comfortable with, and students are encouraged to work at their own pace in classes that include kickboxing, sparring, and boot camp.
