Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.

The main rule at CrossFit MHz is “no excuses.” Coaches expect each athlete to push themselves hard during Workouts of the Day—custom workouts that change daily. Though the workouts are never the same, they might include exercises such as running, rowing, weightlifting, cardio, plyometrics, and gymnastics. CrossFit MHz also features unconventional exercises or challenges that include tasking a group of four ladies with performing 1,612 kettlebell snatches in a two-week period.

At CrossFit Domo, certified CrossFit coaches guide athletes on their fitness journeys according to CrossFit’s principles of varied, functional fitness. Coaches design a new Workout of the Day (WOD) each day, which might blend fitness disciplines such as cardiovascular training, weightlifting, plyometrics, and gymnastics into an intense and calorie-burning workout. WODs are continually evolving, but it’s not uncommon to see CrossFit Domo students practicing some combination of lifting weights, running, rowing, performing bodyweight exercises, or working out with unconventional equipment such as tires and sledgehammers.

With very few trees on the course, golfers' views of the Rocky Mountains—which soar across the western horizon—are seldom obstructed at Saddleback Golf Club. The open terrain also makes the lengthy, 7,090-yard layout more manageable, as golfers can consistently reach for their driver off the tee. Even with an open expanse, golfers are constantly challenged, as most of the course's greens are heavily fortified with sand and grass bunkers, and two holes—the par-three 4th and the par-four 16th—feature de facto island greens, almost fully wreathed by water hazards. Simply reaching the putting surface does not guarantee a good score, as the course's large, multi-tiered greens will make for many long, hard-to-read putts. To prepare for the round, golfers can take a flyover tour of the course.

Though the course is a serious challenge, Saddleback Golf Club encourages golfers of all stripes to enjoy their time on the links. While the scorecards at most clubs include a recitation of basic rules and etiquette, Saddleback's card strikes a much more laid back tone, imploring players to "have phun" and "kick your ball if you hit a bad shot," while reminding them that "scoring is optional." The carefree vibe extends to the Club's instructional programs, where golf pros pass on birdie-hunting wisdom and caddie scolding tactics.
