The Athletic Club aspires to reach the upper echelon of fitness facilities, leading specialty classes within upscale workout environs. Limbs lengthen and spines straighten thanks to an extensive selection of yoga classes, including Anti-Gravity Yoga, which encourages participants to spite earthly forces while in inverted positions using an anti-gravity hammock. Dance fitness classes such as Zumba and African Movement fuse cardio movements to energetic rhythms. Core-sculpting and strength classes such as Cardio Barbell tone physiques without resorting to monster-truck-tire tossing competitions. Exercise enthusiasts can access the merits of cardio and strength equipment before and after classes at each location. Class schedules span seven days a week with early morning through evening sessions, and the Amherstburg club also offers a schedule of aquatics classes. Further amenities include childcare, along with a juice bar, steam rooms, and saunas.
At Mordent Music, 10-year teaching veteran Stephanie Teller calls upon her experiences as a schoolteacher and professional concert pianist as she shares her passion for tickling keys with aspiring Chopins of all ages and skill levels. During half-hour or longer piano lessons, Teller beckons proteges over to a rich, resonant baby grand to learn how to play contemporary pop, country, or hip-hop songs as well as more traditional classical music. Teller instructs younger pupils through lively games and creative exercises, and challenge older, more serious students with the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum, which elevates piano proficiency through written study and a regimen of 100 finger pushups a day.
For more than 30 years, the Canadian College of Health Science & Technology has helped its students forge new career paths into the fields of health care and information technology. Every instructor is currently employed in his or her area of expertise, allowing students to glean real-world insights that are unattainable from textbooks who have never even treated a patient. Each program also incorporates hands-on experience; the Registered Massage Therapy program, for example, lets students knead the muscles of real clients, and the Physiotherapy Assistant program includes a 200-hour clinical placement. Some of the college's other standout programs include an accelerated PC-repair-technician course and an accounting and payroll administrator program.

Kettlebell sessions bolster the body while fostering flexibility as students swing handled weights and volunteer pumpkins looking to make some extra cash. Windsor Squash & Fitness Club rounds out its full-body carte with a handful of relaxing, stretch-centric courses including Pilates, power yoga, and yoga for everybody, whose posework changes at a slower pace to accommodate all levels of mat-bound expertise.
