With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your 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.

Noble Hawk Golf Links brings the haggis-flavored flair of Scottish course design to Northeast Indiana. Hole 1 (par four) is a moderate-length opener with gently rolling slopes that make it seem deceptively simple to bypass the fairway bunkers. From there, a round gets rowdier with diverse challenges such as a huge mound bisecting the green at Hole 5; a drive between water at Hole 4; a large, undulated green at Hole 15; and a narrow, three-tiered green at Hole 13. Click here to take an online tour of the course, or let the innovation, diversity, and deer napping on the luscious greenery surprise you while you play.

In nature, stones are usually treaded on by the masses as they lie forgotten on the ground. But inside The Wellness Center, stones take center stage during massage sessions. They are heated with care and gently slid along body canvases, lulling tense muscles into relaxation. The massage therapists also incorporate essential oils and salt scrubs into their kneading sessions and slather mud masks over faces for added relaxation.
