At Urban Links, golfers up their games with hands-on training sessions with certified instructors and access to an indoor facility with the latest in golf training technology. Golfers can cure their slice-, shank-, or narcolepsy-prone swings inside hitting bays that feature TrackMan swing-analysis software, which uses motion sensors and video playback to break down swinging motions. Urban Links’ resident aces also enlist TrackMan technology to help players find out the club specifications that best fit their swing and body type. Along with lessons and club-fitting sessions, golfers can take advantage of the equipment and develop secret handshakes with cyborg Greg Normans during independent practice sessions in the hitting bays.

At Gracie Barra Kamloops, students learn the art of the underdog: brazilian jiu-jitsu. This martial-arts discipline capitalizes on the concept of leverage to negate any advantage of size or strength. Its grappling techniques therefore enable a person to subdue a much-larger opponent using a repertoire of joint locks and chokeholds.
The instructors—two of whom are certified black belts—demonstrate their ground-fighting techniques during classes for all ages. These sessions hone self-defence moves while promoting overall fitness, much like kicking the panel of your StairMaster between each step.
Carly Mitchell spent so much of her young life physically active as an athlete and dancer that she thought she could never become out of shape, even when she stopped regularly exercising. The four ominous tolls of age, work, travel, and stress eventually claimed their dues, however, and she found herself needing a program to help her whip back into top form. She found a routine that worked with VO2 Max founder Janine Walinski. After some intense training and a couple of personal-trainer certifications, Carly readily opened her own branch of VO2 Max in Kelowna.
VO2 Max hosts small-sized group fitness classes focused on intense interval training. VO2 Max fulfill the promise of providing personalized attention through one-on-one training sessions both at the gym or their clients' homes, nutritional counselling, and regular weigh-ins for members.
As members of the RJS Craft Winemaking Academy, Bayleys BrewHaHa supplies all the ingredients and equipment necessary for burgeoning oenophiles to perfect the art of winemaking. Today's Groupon crafts a batch of any varietal of Grand Cru International wine ($75 for a wine kit). After adding and mixing all the appropriate ingredients under the supervision of Bayleys' seasoned wine makers ($47.50 for brewing), the base solution is bottled, stored, and mellowed to develop complex aromatics, flavour, texture, and moral fibre. When fermentation is complete (about six weeks later), the wine will be ready to be picked up and bottled by its progenitor ($45 plus $9.10 with tax). All products are 100% guaranteed.
With the towering mountains and crystal-blue lake of the Okanagan Valley as a backdrop, Lake View Boot Camp head trainer Tammy Arishenkoff and her staffers work their students hard in pursuit of a noble goal. Cooled by the fresh mountain air and serenaded by the freestyle raps of birds, groups spend four weeks attacking creative and challenging routines on assorted terrains, in the process slimming physiques, toning muscles, and ascending to new heights of fitness. When it becomes too cold to hold classes outside, trainers move sessions to an indoor fitness studio. Instructors also provide students with frequent fitness and nutritional advice, urging them not to undo workouts by eating unhealthily or jogging home backward.
