Las Vegas Iron House prides itself on being a no-nonsense gym, the kind of place where a bodybuilder could prepare for an upcoming competition. Its mirror-lined interior is furnished with Hammer Strength equipment, cardio machines, and more free weights than Paul Bunyan's basement. For exercisers who want some instruction and direction, the facility employs a team of seasoned trainers to lead FitX interval class training and boot-camp classes, including a bodybuilder, a fitness model, and a FitX interval class training level one trainer and mother of two.

Center for Israeli Martial Arts’ instructor, Tomer Steinberg, is a master of several styles of martial arts. A prodigy of Dennis Hanover, the founder of the Hisardut fighting style, Tomer has earned black belts in judo, karate, and jiu-jitsu, which he uses to teach students during classes for kids and adults. His adult classes adopt a hybrid style that blends techniques from forms such as Hisardut, jiu-jitsu, karate, and judo, focusing on developing physical skills and self-defense from armed assailants. Children’s classes also focus on self-defense and physical skill development, adding an emphasis on respect and discipline.

The Revere Golf Club celebrates the legacy of the Revolutionary War hero with two 18-hole championship golf courses that extend for more than 7,000 yards apiece through the desert canyons of the Las Vegas valley. Players drink in the scenery as they take on the Lexington course, opened in 1999 on the same date Paul Revere made his famous ride, or the Concord course, opened in 2002 on the same date Paul Revere discovered text messaging. Each layout was carved into the rugged terrain by Casper Nash & Associates, the prolific design team of Greg Nash and 51-time PGA tour winner Billy Casper.
Once visitors have holed out on either 18th green, they can take to the 23,000-square-foot clubhouse. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows span the entire north side of the facility, allowing for magnificent views of the course and the Las Vegas strip from Buckman’s Grille. Diners enjoy breakfast and lunch options amid Revolution-era ambiance, complete with lanterns that shine overhead and signal whether to order surf or turf.
