When Katie and Scott Gillespie opened Sassy Chic, they filled its confines with cozy touches that beckon clients to relax. A plush couch hosts waiting clients, and sheer, flowery curtains frame doorways throughout the salon. They also peppered the pale-blue walls with three-dimensional flowers and butterfly-themed artwork. Stylists dispense trendy haircuts in front of gold-framed mirrors, and nail technicians paint keratin sheets with polish colors that range from bold solids to glittery hues.

Eagle Fitness sets fitness objectives in motion within well-outfitted health sanctums, in which denizens can define loose musculature and evict freeloading pounds. Cardiovascular exercise equipment from Life Fitness and Precor facilitate calorie incineration on treadmills, ellipticals, and recumbent bicycles, bolstering energy and strength ahead of heated PTA nights. Free weights fuel muscle-fiber development better than chained weights through trinitarian reps, and gym staff keep offspring active and distracted with Eagle’s complimentary childcare. For those who prefer battling atrophy in numbers, aerobics classes—held six days a week at both locations—bring sweaters together to perspire away toxins with Pilates, Zumba, yoga, kickboxing, and box-kicking sessions.
Cottonwoods and willows reach toward the skies across the nine holes of Fallon Golf Course, their towering branches providing natural evidence of the course's 55-year history. Adding to the scenery is the Carson River, which runs alongside the course, providing a home to wildlife such as white egrets, cottontails, and quails. The river flows beside the third hole and cuts directly in front of the second green, while a smaller waterway cuts the fairways on holes five and seven. Before rounds, golfers can warm up at a practice green or stop by the driving range to pick up tees, dip them in bronze, and sew them into an intimidating sweater vest.
