Los Amigos Golf Course doesn't waste any time challenging players: the very first hole is also the longest hole, clocking in at a whopping 516 yards. Designed by revered architect Bill Bell, the course tests golfers with beautiful yet hazardous tree-lined greens and a pair of shimmering lakes. So players can conquer the course's hurdles without having to parachute balls from a well-placed helicopter, Los Amigos offers plenty of instructional opportunities, including lessons for groups and entire families. The facility also boasts an expansive practice area, complete with large putting greens, chipping zones, and a night-lit driving range with both mat and grass tees. The course and its facilities can also be rented out for weddings, quincea?eras, business meetings, and other events. And like its name, several employees at Los Amigos Golf Course are bilingual. Course at a Glance * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total distance of 6,156 yards * Course rating of 68 from the back tees * Course slope of 114 from the back tees * Three tees per hole * See the scorecard

A nonprofit organization, Shoestring City Ranch is run by instructors that dedicate their time to teach teamwork and leadership skills to city-slicker kids by having them work with rescued animals. The environmentally friendly ranch hosts clinics on communicating with pets and group horseback-riding classes that teach everyone from tots to adults how to groom and ride. They also host fun events in addition to classes, such as the 5K Gallop and 1-Mile Tot Trot and a Roping Clinic 101, where a professional rodeo cowboy teaches students how to use a lasso.

Blaine Eastcott's love of the outdoors is rooted in fond childhood memories of family camping trips. On one such trip, Blaine's teenage self impulsively climbed a 100-foot rock only to soon find himself struck by panic high up on the rock face. He was paralyzed by fear, until a surge of adrenaline gave him the courage needed to scramble the final 10 feet up. This ordeal spurred him to take rock-climbing classes?and eventually led to his current position as the president of Rockreation. His three adrenaline-inducing arenas challenge climbers of all skill levels with more than 28,500 total square feet of climbing terrain, composed of jagged cliffs, bouldering nooks, and craggy archways. The faux-mountain range mimics the conditions of real rocks with indentions, overhangs, and eagle's nests. The gyms devote one-third of their space to a bouldering area, which blends into a top-rope course fraught with varying angles, and a large lead area with an overhanging arch. Across these angles, passionate instructors with extensive outdoors experience?and a background in conversational mountain goat?guide students through the Fight Gravity program. The three-class series focuses on belaying basics, and progresses through technique instruction and bouldering. They also lead seasonal kids' camps where tiny humans can explore the routes, or plunge on a big swing and zipline. The gyms also have a separate area with machines, traditional weights, and cardio equipment for members who want to not only climb rocks, but also lift heavy ones above their heads.

Perhaps the only thing as impressive as Roy Elghanayan?s reign as a two-time Israeli Krav Maga National Champion is the students with whom he?s shared his incredible skill. He first was hand-chosen to devise the Israeli Special Forces? training program. In 2011, the Argentinean Marines enlisted him to teach the sport to their soldiers. He even trained actress Jessica Chastain for her role in the movie The Debt. Today, he continues to travel the world to teach Krav Maga and works out of his studio, Krav Maga L.A. | REKM. Krav maga is a more rigorous form of self-defense developed by the Israeli military when they realized that ancient martial arts would translate to modern battlefields. Roy and his staff helm classes for both adults and children as part of a six-day schedule that divides students by their skill level. Beginners? classes corral 18 participants or less so that instructors can easily oversee technique while still having enough bodies to build a human pyramid if morale is low. With continued practice, the instructors at Krav Maga L.A. | REKM hope to imbue their students with the physical and mental skill to escape threatening situations should they ever arise.

When Darren Levine received his first Krav Maga black belt in 1984, he wasn't the first man to have worn that particular piece of fabric. The belt originally belonged to the man presenting it to him: Imi Lichtenfeld, the creator of Krav Maga. Darren had had the good fortune of learning the self-defense technique from Imi himself, and eventually became one of Imi's most trusted practitioners, developing training programs for more than 5,000 law enforcement and military personnel throughout the U.S. In 1998, just one year after his beloved mentor passed away, Darren founded Krav Maga Worldwide to meet growing demand from curious civilians. The hand-to-hand technique is focused on reacting to realistic attacks, and teachers use scenarios inspired by everything from military combat, to late-night walks alone, to heated matches of Whac-A-Mole. Darren and his team lead various programs tailored for law enforcement and military members, women, fitness buffs, and even children, and they also offer certification programs for those looking to become instructors.

The certified instructors at PoleMoves invented a curriculum that's highly personalized in order to rectify the most common complaints about pole-fitness studios. They sort their students into clearly delineated levels for small group and private lessons, conducting regular assessments so that advanced practitioners need not repeat quizzes about which way is up. By devoting individual attention to their students, who each get their own 12.5-foot pole during class, they foster a supportive environment for shedding inhibitions. The studio's courses cover basic pole-dancing techniques, the advanced inversions and tricks of METHOD classes, stretch-and-strengthen conditioning, and the meditative rhythms of NIA. During specialized workshops, instructors might demonstrate chair-dancing choreography or tips for aspiring teachers on planning their routines. The staff's mission is to highlight the legitimacy and accessibility of their gravity-defying art, and they've been recognized for doing so by the American Council on Exercise, AFAA, and the American Pole Fitness Association.
