The owners of Cutting Edge Fitness claim "the fitness industry is constantly evolving." To stay abreast of the ever-changing trends, they stock their facility with up-to-date technology and incorporate the industry's most innovative workout regimens during many of their group classes. They track pulses during select sessions on polar heart-rate monitors that display data on a 7-foot projection screen at the front of the room, encouraging attendees to monitor their progress and put the equipment's lie-detector capabilities to the test. They also lead virtual spinning sessions and vibration-based Power Plate classes, putting their own contemporary twists on familiar workout regimens.
The instructors also draw from their conventional arsenal of kettlebells, resistance bands, TRX suspension systems, free weights, and Pilates equipment as they lead invigorating sessions intended to tone muscles or incinerate free-loading calories. They incorporate multiple techniques to create challenging whole-body workouts, and they welcome students of virtually any age or fitness level.
The verdant brainchild of course architect William Mitchell, Deerfield Country Club's 18-hole course plots a 4,120-yard track through lush groves of palm trees and impeccably maintained turf. An executive layout composed of nine par 3s and nine par 4s, the course offers diverse play in a time-efficient package. New greens and recently refurbished bunkers compete for golf balls' affection, their success determined by dowries offered by paternal flagsticks and sand-trap rakes. Golfers streamline straight-hitting swings and soft, greenside shots at the practice facilities, which include a driving range with practice bunkers and an immense putting green. Leather chairs await weary legs in the clubhouse, where golfers can slake their thirst or clean off sand wedges with a sudsy drink from the bar.
Course at a Glance: * Designed by William Mitchell * 18-hole, par-63 course * Length of 4,120 yards from the farthest tees * Three tee options
The space between Latin countries is no wider than a table at Latinos Restaurante. Here, specialties from Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and Mexico are all on the menu.?Especially hungry guests can dine like ranchers or particularly refined bears on steak served with two fried eggs, beans, and rice. Other entrees include rice mixed with a seafood medley, and fish saut?ed Peruvian style with onions, tomatoes, and french fries. But the restaurant doesn't stop at dinner?it has a large selection of breakfast plates, as well as its own bakery that churns out croissants and empanadas.
The restaurant, which started in 2001 as a tiny business with only two employees and 14 tables, now boasts a large dining area decorated with hanging saddles and a terracotta-style awning that hangs over wooden booths. On the opposite side, bartenders fill buckets with imported bottled beers and pour cocktails, from classic margaritas to Brazilian caipirinhas.
The staff at Velocity Martial Arts swears by the martial arts as a nonacademic method for gifting kids with the tools they need to become successful and productive adults. As they learn combative moves in capoeira, Brazilian jujitsu, and kickboxing classes, they also learn to temper themselves and have respect for fellow students. Led by mixed-martial-arts Master Charles Panoyan, the school's instructors accept students of almost any age. That means even adults can learn body-conditioning exercises and self-defense moves that will serve them well on the street or when being pelted with mashed potatoes during a raucous board meeting.

Atlantic Ave. cuts through Delray Beach, a seaside town known for its ocean views and?thanks in part to Savor Our City Culinary Tours?its gourmet food. On the company's three-hour walking tour of the area, participants follow a guide well-versed in local history and sample sustainably-sourced dishes from local artisans. That's not to say the dishes exclusively hail from Florida. In fact, their influences can be traced to a mix of Latin, Italian, and American gastropub fare. At least two of each tour's stops feature wine pairings to ensure the food doesn't get lonely. Participants interested in tours of Pineapple Grove and PGA Commons needn't worry, though?those routes are marked by similarly global delicacies, curated wines, and historical anecdotes.
