Funmazing Playcentre stocks its indoor playground with interactive equipment and arcade-style games promoting physical, social, and emotional development in children ages 1–12. After strapping on mandatory pairs of socks, tykes skate down a winding green-and-yellow tunnel slide, race friends down three blue plastic slides, or hug car-track corners while manning the wheel of a plasma car. A sport court boasts basketball hoops for pickup games or rounds of Horse, and a pinata pit permits candy-craving youngsters to whack defenseless replicas of Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, or multiplication tables. As skee balls launch up lanes into numbered holes, pucks glide speedily across air hockey tables into opponent goals. Funmazing Playcentre grants adults free entry with kids, sequestering grown-ups in seated areas where they can relax with cups of coffee or tea, check e-mail on free WiFi, or propel paper airplanes marked with basketball strategies toward their children.

Pilates in Guelph's certified instructors woo the mat-curious with a lineup of 55-minute classes that blend styles and skill levels. Within a spacious, mirrored studio, groups of about 12 students acquaint themselves with the latest in advanced Pilates equipment such as trapeze tables and fitness circles designed to whittle muscles into toned renditions of interestingly shaped countries. Beginner-level classes, such as the Pilates Basics class, instill fundamentals; classes that target certain body areas, such as the intermediate-level Abs, Shoulders & Core class, employ weights and the participant's own body weight to strengthen the entire upper body. Intermediate-level students can glower in the face of the Pilates Bootcamp class, which zips students through high-intensity cardio movements and equipment work, leaving muscles grizzled and ready to punch in walls. Instructors cater to individual needs such as physical limitations and specific health conditions.

F&M Brewery makes its carefully balanced Stone Hammer craft beers with malted barley, fresh hops, and water sourced from local artesian wells. Each small batch is fire-brewed in a copper kettle before slowly aging in the cellar?s horizontal tanks. The resulting beers have garnered numerous awards, including a gold medal in the 2009 Canadian Brewing Awards? pilsner category and a silver medal in the 2013 Canadian Brewing Awards? stout category.

In addition to hosting events and operating restaurants throughout Canada, F&M Brewery sells their suds at a retail store alongside swag such as glassware and beer soap, which can be used to scrub down in the shower or add extra froth to drafts. The store also stocks pieces from the Craftbrewers Recycled Art Project, which transforms malt bags and brewery waste into art pieces, wallets, and other useable items.

Instructors at the Everybuddy Ballroom Dance Studios believe that stiff, stilted dancing isn't a result of too little talent—it's a result of too much information. Dancing comes naturally to most people, they profess, and harnessing that nature is simply a matter of simplifying the process. When teachers bombard pupils with dance patterns and technical details, the students' brains take over their bodies, leading to awkward steps and uncomfortable performances. At Everybuddy Ballroom Dance Studios, teachers instead introduce students to a few easy steps they can use over many styles of music. Once they feel like second nature, steps are gradually differentiated until every dancer can execute Latin and ballroom moves in a flowing manner. They've dubbed this the SNAP teaching method, and though slow-going at first, it often helps students learn to dance even faster than with detail-heavy or battery-powered dance-shoe methods.

At its 10 locations throughout Canada, The Athletic Club provides access to exercise machines and fitness classes, but that’s only part of the story. Club staffers also follow an overarching mission to making discovering a healthy lifestyle fun rather than onerous. While exploring the multilevel fitness arenas, members and guests may catch encouraging shouts from personal trainers or a medley of splashing and laughter from children taking swimming lessons from professional instructors. They can also investigate the benefits of yoga or spinning during group classes or one-on-one instruction. Cardio machines boost heart rates and bolster endurance, while flat-panel televisions attached to each machine keep members entertained. In addition to building new bodily abilities, members also keep their minds sharp with services such as nutrition counselling or wellness classes held on the astral plane.
