Certified personal trainer Mechelle Haflich is familiar with both the highs and lows of physical health. As a bodybuilder, she has won competitions focused on superior strength, and as a registered massage therapist, she has eased injured muscles back into action. Both titles have proven essential in planning FitBody Studio, where she takes a holistic view on wellness through fitness, massage, and spa services. Alongside a team of highly credentialed instructors, therapists, and aestheticians, Mechelle's team adjusts her programs to suit each client's ambitions, which range from losing inches to being able to deadlift a locomotive.

On the exercise side of the curriculum, private training sessions and group classes build endurance—Vinyasa yoga and kickboxing sessions round out the stair climbs and cardio drills of the Bleachers class, which takes place inside the Colorado College football stadium. To repair overworked deltoids, the studio's massage programs relax tendons and target injuries with a mix of modalities. After workouts sculpt bodies, FitBody Studio’s spa polishes them smooth with waxing services and custom facials.

Valley Hi Golf Course’s 18 fairways have been flourishing with rye grass and deciduous trees since 1954, when golfers first began cursing the course’s tricky water hazards and bunker-guarded greens with old-timey swear words such as "leaping argyle!" The 1st hole boasts the course’s longest fairway, whereas the 7th hole stops short to become the shortest par five – the best hope for a birdie. The putting green at the 18th hole keeps golfers on their cleated toes until the very end by demanding, like medieval kings, to be approached from the left and on one’s knees. Those hoping to hone their game can take lessons with a staff headed by PGA golf pro Mike Northern, whose more than 30 years in the game have netted him a full trophy case. Before hitting the greens in the morning, golfers drop by the Caddie Shack Restaurant and Bar to fill their bellies with omelets, and those finishing up a later round can bite into sandwiches or burgers.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course
  • Length of 6,806 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 116 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

Thanks to its impressive selection of varietals from more than 95 local wineries, The Wines of Colorado has been lauded as "one of the most unique wine shops in the country" by Wine Trail Traveler and featured in the Wall Street Journal. Inside, a mural of larger-than-life bottles lines one wall, and an adjacent room houses an expansive tasting counter that stocks a lineup of bottles filled with Colorado reds and whites, which are often compared to Californian vinos. Their food has received it’s fair share of recognition as well, earning numerous awards, including Best Creekside Dining from the Gazette in 2010 and 2011. The chefs sizzle up signature buffalo wine burgers and creamy dill mahi-mahi, which guests can enjoy on the pine-tree-lined outdoor patio as they sip wine mere steps away from the burbling Fountain Creek.

The 2,000-square-foot laser-tag arena at Shotz Lazer Tag & Billiards swallows up to 24 players in its black-lit barricades, spitting them out for tests of manual dexterity in the arcade and at pool tables. During games of tag, laser beams slice though a shroud of fog and hearts race in time to pumping music. The staff not only explains the rules of laser tag and equips players with gear, but periodically reconfigures the terrain to prevent frequent visitors from gaining a home-field advantage. Marksmen receive scorecards documenting the number of shots fired, their accuracy, and the location of any stains on their shirt after emerging from the black light. Nearby, the arcade rings with electronic yelps emitted by the gaming machines, and the crack of cue balls echoes over the felt of 9-foot Gold Crown pool tables.

Mark and Dorie Wexler—along with a staff of instructors that hail from Panama, Brazil, and Peru—enthusiastically spread the irresistible rhythm of Latin beats through their signature Zumba and salsa classes, earning their Colorado Avenue location the title of Best Dance Studio from Colorado Springs Independent in 2011 as well as Best Adult Dance Studio from the Gazette in 2010. The Wexlers view dance as a form of fitness rather than one of competition, allowing students to enjoy themselves and experiment without the fear of being rated or punched in the knees by ornery judges.
