Licensed Zumba instructor Kehaulani Volhein leads students through high-energy workouts that set a blend of dance and exercise moves to upbeat, Latin-inspired music. During classes on Tuesday mornings and Thursday and Friday evenings, Kehau inspires dancers of all skill levels to let loose with easy-to-execute routines that help develop coordination while improving cardiovascular fitness. Exercisers burn calories to a soundtrack of international music that creates a party-like atmosphere and tricks sweat into electric sliding out of the body. Kehau recommends that exercisers wear comfortable clothes and bring water so they can stay hydrated or recreate scenes from Flashdance.
Named America's third most difficult golf course by Golf Digest, Ko'olau Golf Club's Dick Nugent–designed course snakes through the crags of the picturesque, 2,000-foot Ko'olau Ridge mountain range, where duffers contend with dramatic elevation changes and the thick vegetation of the tropical jungle. The breathtaking course spans 5,102 yards from the forward tees and 7,310 yards from the back tees, with two sets in between, and its length is compounded by a series of deep ravines, massive sand bunkers, and driver-stealing Pacific loons. After enduring 17 intricate holes, golfers must steel themselves for the dramatic, par 4 18th, where two forced carries and 22 sand bunkers may turn even the boldest of wedge-wielding knights into a quivering lickspittle. Though the formidable seashore paspalum monolith may mangle scorecards, its sweeping, tropical vistas and cascading waterfalls make the course a beautiful and enjoyable haunt for all.
