Vegas Valley Gymnastics Center hopes to inspire confidence in children as well as adults, helping them hone their gymnastics prowess and mental focus with a variety of classes. Students of all levels?both recreational gymnasts and aspiring competitors?practice their skills at a fully equipped facility with uneven bars, a sprung floor, balance beams, and other apparatus. Students learn basic gymnastic skills that include skills like beam, floor, bars and vault, pommel horse, parallel bars, high bar, floor, and rings. Boys, girls, and tots classes are available.

Beyond gymnastics, the facility's varied schedule features dance lessons, cheer classes, and tumbling classes, which cover the fundamental techniques used in everything from cheerleading to court-jester internships. The center also offers adult fitness sessions, and for the more adventurous, aerial silks classes where students work on graceful, muscle-toning routines while suspended in the air.

Constant repetition isn't the best way to enhance fitness results. Camp Rhino's fitness courses emphasize variation above all else, whether that means tackling the CrossFit WOD (workout of the day), participating in boot camps scaled to individual ability levels, or preparing for different tasks on the obstacle course. Rhino's 10,700-square-foot facility houses myriad strength training equipment and a full multilevel obstacle course designed to prepare clients for mud runs, obstacle races, and awkward job interviews. Boot camps include outdoor portions as well, where gym-goers throw logs and pull tires to build muscle.

Tie-dyed T-shirts aren't just for camp crafts sessions or laid-back black-tie affairs. At the Tie-Dye Run, they're a uniform. Racers dart from the starting line in white shirts, which is then doused with a different color of non-toxic dye at each mile marker. By the time they're finished with the 5K, participants sport a rainbow of hues. It's all part of the organizers' mission to "spread the love" with the event, which is also family-friendly, non-competitive, and used to raise funds for local charities.

Colorful flags flap in the wind across TaylorMade Golf Experience's 42-acre grounds, acting as target beacons for golfers as they crush golf balls at the two-tiered driving range or at the nine-hole, par 3 course. Nicknamed "The Approach," the layout earned its moniker with its immaculate greens. Ample lighting keeps the course playable at night as golfers hunt holes in one while dialing in shots from tee boxes stationed anywhere between 110 to 185 yards from the pin.

The distant high-rises of the Vegas Strip serve as a backdrop to the center's driving range, where golfers hone swings at one of 113 hitting bays that overlook five target greens. Former US Amateur Champion Eric Meeks?who also competed in the Masters, the British Open, and the US Open?acts as the director of instruction, presiding over a staff that offers outdoor lessons and swing analyses.
