Since 1986, Windermere has welcomed sultans of swing to relax and hone their skills with friends and family in a sophisticated, yet relaxed country-club atmosphere. The course recently finished a complete cosmetic makeover, renovating the greens, bunkers, driving range, and clubhouse with fresh bermuda-grass seed. Originally designed by Ward Northrup, the 18-hole, par 72 championship course caters to handicaps of all levels with 6,558 yards of meticulously manicured fairways, making it one of the newest and most handsome semiprivate clubs in the area. Thirteen holes border lakes, and 63 strategically placed bunkers challenge experienced golfers and give amateurs multiple chances to supplement their income with hidden sand dollars.

From the outside, the fitness facility may look like a barn, but the blue turf floor and mountains of medicine balls inside tell a different story. In the spacious gym, head trainer Neil Barnhill presides over patrons playing games of catch with those medicine balls, lifting barbells, or pulling against resistance on the rowing machine. He leads small classes, providing constant positive reinforcement and motivation, unlike a pet parrot repeating all the things it heard at your roast. The ever-changing series of functional, everyday movements and exercises keep the classes interesting. Goals are customized to each member after an overall fitness assessment that measures BMI, body-fat composition, and weight before training begins. Classes move outside when the weather's nice so fitness enthusiasts can run laps, perform pull-ups, and drag tractor tires over the grass under the open sky.

Inside all of The Salt Scene's treatment rooms, Himalayan rock salt covers the walls, thereby creating a therapeutic environment by sterilizing the space with negative ions. As guests nap, read, or act out an entire CSI episode during their 45-minute halotherapy treatments, they also breathe in the salty air, which helps relax the body and reduce any inflammation in the respiratory system. Other benefits range from strengthening immune systems against future illnesses to lessening allergies by opening up nasal passages. The Salt Scene even houses a salt bed, whose adjustable concentration levels are ideal for clients seeking customizable treatment to address certain ailments.

A five-time American Taekwondo Association World Champion, chief master Von Schmeling, began Victory Martial Arts to teach pupils confidence and leadership skills while imparting martial-arts techniques. Classes capped at 30 students, with at most 10 students per instructor, cover disciplines such as general martial arts, krav maga, and self-defense for thwarting assailants and heavily armed spiders. Budding martial artists hone their craft alongside loved ones in family sessions or practice maneuvers in age-specific sequences for kids, teens, or adults.

The gym looks like equal parts Olympic training facility and old warehouse?here, exercisers hoist themselves up rows of pull-up bars, grunt around a collection of kettlebells, and hop through jump-rope routines. On a power-lifting platform, a lifter explodes from a squat, hoisting a plate-loaded bar up to his shoulders and then dropping under it to catch the weight over his head. Elsewhere, athletes do dips on gymnast rings and build a sweat on rowing machines. This low-tech setting is typical of all true CrossFit gyms. Though the equipment may be basic, the results are not: CrossFit workouts develop all measures of physical fitness?from power to cardiovascular endurance?through workouts that are broad, general, and inclusive. This approach is often described as specializing in not specializing: it develops physical fitness in ways equally beneficial to everyone, from professional mixed martial artists and police officers to weekend softball players. CrossFit gyms typically start clients in a foundational program where trainers teach the basic movements, such as the squat, dead lift, and pull-up. Every exercise is scalable to a version that clients can complete?a pull-up, for example, can be scaled back to a negative pull-up, a static hang, or body-weight row with gymnast rings. It can also be scaled to a more challenging version, such as the kipped pull-up. After students learn CrossFit's basic movements, they move on to open group classes, which follow the ever-changing WOD, or Workout of the Day. These workouts are short and intense, and they foster camaraderie through frequent team circuits. In addition to supervising WOD class, trainers coach members on nutrition, advocating a caveman-style diet of low-glycemic carbohydrates, monounsaturated fats, and lean proteins such as raptor meat.
