High cholesterol and high blood pressure—the doctor who gave trainer Emeka Umeh this diagnosis unknowingly lit a fire beneath a patient already tired of his XXL-sized wardrobe. Emeka worked to overcome the unhealthy habits that had fallen into, completing hardcore workouts that eventually slimmed him down to a mere 10.3% body fat. With compassion for those in similar plights, Emeka now guides patrons of all fitness levels through intensive workouts designed to boost their metabolism and tone their musculature at Fit Body Boot Camp. Each session combines both cardio and strength training, drawing together innovative suspension training and battling ropes with primal strength-training techniques that hark back to when early humans first drove their Camaros out of the primordial soup. Over the course of camp, many patrons see slimmer physiques and beefed-up brawn emerge. In addition to leading boot campers, Emeka also offers personal-training services, conducts body assessments to chart his clients' progress, and outlines nutritional plans, pushing his patrons to live healthier lifestyles.
The Dive Shop’s trained staff instructs aspiring divers during hands-on classes in the heated, indoor pool. The Discover Scuba class offers students 10 and older a three-hour submerged frolic session under the supervision of a diving instructor, allowing them to acquaint themselves with new equipment and submarine perspectives. New divers need no more than a bathing suit and a towel to experience the joys of safe submersion, learn about typical open-water dive equipment, and engage in aqueous recreations of classical Greek tragedies.
Playing with improperly fitted golf clubs can create havoc for one’s swing and, ultimately, scorecard. A club that’s too long or too short can decelerate swings, and an improper loft angle can cause slices or hooks. Pure Impact Golf Studio’s technology-driven systems eliminate poorly fitted clubs by measuring players’ swings in meticulous detail.
Inside the 12,000-square-foot golf facility, staff members monitor golfers’ natural movements using TrackMan Doppler radars that track ball trajectories in real time. As they record measurements, technicians modify the clubs by switching out shafts and heads, fine-tuning the combinations until the ideal configurations are found. The final specifications give players the information they need to swap ill-fitting gear with manufacturer-tailored clubs or whittle their own sets out of reclaimed driftwood. The center also helps players fine-tune their games with onsite lessons and fitness-training services.
Open seven days a week, the 110,000-square-foot facility at High Velocity Sports gives athletes year-round access to indoor sports and games, such as flag football, dodgeball, volleyball, and golf simulation. Come rain, shine, snow, or meteor shower, guests can challenge a fellow clubber to 18 holes of simulated golf within the allotted two hours. The simulator digitizes 40 of the world’s best courses, allowing duos to navigate the fairways of Pebble Beach or Spyglass without the hassle of plane hopping. Bring your equipment and don a pair of simulated plaid pants as you chip and slice your way through famous greens, dodging sand traps, water hazards, or ball-stealing monkeys.
