At Punch Kettlebell Gym, owner and certified fitness trainer Rob Santarossa leads a team of instructors who lead group and private exercise regimens and nutritional coaching to help each client achieve a slim physique and healthier lifestyle. Rob’s dedication to fitness stems from his own early weight-loss struggles, an experience that allows him to coach with empathy and enact appropriate levels of motivation. About 12–15 students partake in the group and boot-camp classes, which stress weight-and-cardio combinations using diverse exercises, each scalable to fit individual needs or allergies to jumping jacks. Kettlebells and other forms of resistance are added along the way to round out the focused 30-minute routines. To help maintain a healthy lifestyle, fitness seekers will also be equipped with online nutritional software, which helps lay out customized meal plans, charts nutritional progress, and shouts warnings of falling anvils.
Muscular instructors help exercisers of all fitness levels slim silhouettes and chisel muscles with motivating boot camps, one on one personal training, and fat-evicting nutrition plans. During boot camps, a certified fitness coach draws on more than 15 years of experience to build up bodies with a series of high-intensity interval and metabolic resistance training. The encouraging trainer conducts a symphony of grunts as students strain to lift sandbags and tires within the indoor gym before hitting the fresh air to hurdle over motionless freeze-tag players and other outdoor obstacles. They’ll also compliment their rigorous workout regimes with nutrition guidance that equips students with grocery lists and recipes that ensure balanced meals.
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.
Body Kneads specializes in wringing unhealthiness from minds and bodies with massage and alternative health therapies, including far-infrared radiant heat, or FIR, sauna therapy. A naturally occurring form of light, far infrared penetrates 2 to 3 inches into the body, where it converts to heat, much like natural sunlight but without the harmful effects of UV radiation or the risk of farmers' tan. Unlike traditional saunas, the FIR sauna directly heats the body from within instead of raising the outer air temperature, resulting in a deeper level of heating. It also can create a more comfortable sauna experience, as the lack of humidity can make breathing easier and maintains a cleaner environment. FIR sauna therapy is believed to have many health benefits, including improved circulation, detoxification through sweating, and conditioning the body for volcano expeditions. Participants may wear whatever they feel most comfortable in, from bathing suits to jodhpurs, and may relax with music or reading material.
After a hockey collision, ninth grader Peter Buzek feels a sharp pain in his back and tingling in his legs. His doctor diagnoses it as muscle spasms and writes him a prescription, but the sensations continue to worsen. When they grow so potent that 13-year-old Buzek must use a cane to walk around, he heads into a chiropractic office for an alternative solution. The chiropractor discovers a herniated disc and quickly gets to work, helping Buzek ditch the cane only after a few weeks of care. Amazed by the curative abilities and spelling difficulty of chiropractic, he sets his sights on someday becoming a chiropractor.
After finishing school, Doctor of Chiropractic Peter Buzek opened Buzek Chiropractic, where he and his team have treated clients ranging from days-old infants to professional athletes. The 1,650-sqaure-foot clinic houses multiple treatment rooms, each designed for specific services such as adjustments, exams, and massage therapy. Dr. Buzek also employs an arsenal of additional services to find and treat the root of a patient's problem, whether it be a child's bed-wetting issue or an adult's sciatica-related hip pain.
When you golf at Lakeview Hills Golf Resort, you can get a distinct picture of the sport's different eras. Its two 18-hole courses share the same farmland near Lake Huron but were built 61 years apart.
The South Course, built in 1927, harkens back to the golden era of golf course design, treating golfers to a shorter layout filled with hills and a nuanced short game. The 1991 addition—the nearly 7,000-yard North Course—is built for today's longer hitters, but has four sets of tees for both shorter hitters and anyone using tree branches as clubs.
Despite its name, Lakeview Hills Golf Resort has various sporting pursuits. There are three wooden racquetball courts set near the pro shop, as well as a 16-lane bowling alley.
