The term "fitness center" often conjures up the image of an endless sea of treadmills or a gang of spandex-clad ladies lifting treadmills over their heads. The Spartan Boot Camp and Personal Training fitness center and its staff shatter this old-fashioned conception of a gym with an assortment of unconventional exercise equipment and innovative workout sessions. Amid sandbags, kettlebells, and oversized car tires, a team of nationally certified personal trainers lead students of all experience levels in challenging and creative boot camps and personal-training sessions. They pull inspiration from the inventive My Mad Methods training program, named after Margaret Thatcher's penchant for cracking chestnuts during arms-treaty negotiations. The staffs' progressive workouts and modern facility also earned the fitness center praise from Fit Business Insider.
Heritage Hills Golf Course stretches over gently rolling hillocks with frequent water hazards in the form of several lakes and a stream that comes into play on 10 holes. Players send their shots soaring down zoysia fairways in pursuit of a parking spot on bentgrass greens, which roll true thanks to meticulous upkeep and daily lie-detector tests by the expert grounds crew. During play, golfers can summon refreshments from the beverage cart, and after rounds, they can head to the newly constructed clubhouse for drinks at the full-service bar.
