Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7.

Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.
Deertrak Golf Club's 18-hole course is characterized by numerous bodies of water, most notably Alderley Lake, which borders playable terrain along the course's western edge. Opened in 1986, the course layout sends players skimming over 6,400 yards of manicured fairways and greens.
More than 34 flowerbeds and eight water fountains lend grandeur to the course's design, and two cascading waterfalls give errant golf balls one last thrill before their final swan dive into the abyss. Before players finish their round and count up divot scores, they must first clear the arduous stretch found at holes 14–17, featuring two long par 5s and a tee shot on the par 3 17th that must clear three bodies of water en route to the green.

Doctors of Chiropractic Korie Gardner and F.J. Schofield have spent years training to figure out the causes of neck and back pain and how to get rid of it. Since graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic, the two haven’t stopped studying. Just recently, Dr. Schofield learned how diagnose and treat whiplash and physical injuries that can occur in car accidents using the latest technology, including imaging. In addition to chiropractic care, Dr. Gardner offers nutritional counseling. By encouraging clients to maintain a healthy diet and avoid swimming in chocolate fountains, she can help increase their lifespan.
Licensed massage therapist Tracy Sprader reduces clients' mental stress and muscular tension with custom kneading routines performed over the course of 60 or 90 minutes. As senses ripen amid the chocolate-hued walls and flickering candles of a private treatment room, Tracy divines the client’s particular massage preferences through a full consultation. Once Tracy has determined a game plan that's equally suited to assuaging aches as it is to scrambling the letters on a Scrabble board, her skilled fingers shuffle across backs, executing either relaxation or deep-tissue massages. The relaxation massage offers light to medium pressure while the deep-tissue option involves deeper kneading. Both massages employ a combination of hot-and-cold therapy.
