Experienced staff at Quick Tone Fitness & Tanning Center takes over solar duties with a variety of services to bronze skin. During spray-tanning sessions, specialists cloak physiques in even coats of paraben- and perfume-free Sun FX potions brewed from purified water and natural ingredients. Sun FX tanning solutions react with the amino acids in skin to leave a tan with the even gold hue of King Midas' stress ball. In traditional UV-tanning sessions, guests may swaddle complexions within Level 3 beds or high-intensity Level 6 beds with 360 degrees of glowing rays. Patrons gain evening access to Quick Tone Fitness & Tanning Center, which requires only a personal security code that doubles as a Morse-code theme song.
Designed by Scottish course architect Robert Foulis and sculpted into the dramatic hills of St. Louis in 1901, Normandie Golf Club’s 6,534-yard par 71 course artfully appropriates a links-style layout into the rolling topography of the Midwest. A pre-round warm-up session at Normandie’s driving range prepares swings for a daunting first hole: a 446-yard narrow par four whose treacherously tight tree lines have daunted slow-starting legends such as LPGA forebear Babe Didrikson Zaharias and renowned sausage enthusiast Babe Ruth. The rest of the round is characterized by elevated greens and tees connecting across the kempt tundra of bermuda-grass valleys, particularly on hole seven, a par 5 dogleg right, and hole 13, a par 56 hedge maze.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote healthy weight management, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle toning. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The rolling Missouri countryside serves as the backdrop for Eagle Springs Golf Course, where players test their swings across a 27-hole golf complex. A par 72 when played from the back tees, Eagle Springs' 18-hole course stretches across 6,549 yards of undulating fairways, tricky sand-trap placements, and relatively large, hard-to-read greens. Though it has a predominantly parkland-style layout, ponds come into play on five holes, keeping golfers on their toes and tempting underused caddies to dive after balls in hopes of earning respect. Eagle Springs' nine-hole, par 3 course invites golfers to hone their short-game skills across a 1,270-yard layout.
Views of the course abound from the Clubhouse Restaurant, which serves a full lunch and dinner menu. For golfers hoping to snag a bite at the turn, a snack bar provides fairway smoothies and snacks including danishes, muffins, hot dogs, and egg sandwiches.
