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.

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.
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's four stores supply all the ingredients and equipment necessary for burgeoning brew masters to craft their own wine, beer, and cider. Today's Groupon crafts 48 bottles of cider or coolers under the tutelage of Bayleys' familial crew, who assign each student a spirit animal to guide them through the process from start to finish. On-site facilities use 100% reverse osmosis filtered water as the base for flavours like apple, pomegranate, and hard cranberry lemonade. After adding and mixing all the appropriate ingredients, the base is bottled, stored, and mellowed with select classics of reggae. When fermentation completes about four weeks later, the ciders and coolers are ready to bottle and are 100% guaranteed.
