Burlington Fitness & Racquet Club earned the Burlington Post's 2011 Readers' Choice Award for Best Fitness Club by challenging exercisers with trainer-guided workouts or solo sweat sessions inside a 70,000-square-foot facility. Racquets propel balls year-round at indoor squash and tennis courts, where certified instructors improve fledgling players' backhands and prepare athletes for humanity's imminent war with pitching machines. Licensed personal trainers help fitness seekers navigate rows of cardio and weight equipment, and energetic instructors lead classes such as yoga and boot camp—a high-intensity combination of tae bo and power drills. Welcoming staff slings healthy snacks at an on-site café, where occasional events such as cooking classes and muscle-trading parties entertain club members.
The staining swamis at Abbey Stained Glass have been teaching students of all levels how to color light and bend beauty for 25 years. In the first class, you'll practice staining fundamentals, including how to cut, grind, foil, solder, patina, and polish glass, before employing these skills in the pursuit of a five-piece suncatcher. Once you have the basics down, spend the next three lessons constructing a window composed of up to 15 pieces, depicting your favorite flower, bird, or gas station logo. After a month with the friendly staff at Abbey Stained Glass, you'll have a new set of skills and a tangible keepsake of your acumen, perfect for impressing grandparents and handsome milkmen alike. Classes are held in small groups of 10–12 and take place on Wednesdays from 2 p.m.–5 p.m. and 6 p.m.–9 p.m.

Sewing machines perch atop blue-skirted tables in a brightly lit room accented with hardwood floors, bookshelves brimming with multihued material, and wall displays of buttons and sewing accessories. In these welcoming confines, the instructors of Chenoa Designs guide students through their projects, imparting techniques for attaching appliqués to homemade handbags or adjusting dress patterns to fit a pet goldfish. The team of seam sultans works to expand the stitchwork community through a roster of classes that guide newcomers on everything from the basics of operating a sewing machine to the intricacies of embroidery and appliqué. While students work, they can draw from the DIY emporium's stock of specialty embroidery machines and binding systems by Martelli along with renowned lines such as Jenny Haskins designs to ensure their projects benefit from top-notch materials and tools.
Cold winter wind howls across Ontario, but students of The Swim Academy are keeping warm as they glide through the 90-degree waters of the center’s indoor pools.
