For more than two decades, Paxton Sports Centre has encouraged healthy living with its large tennis, swimming, and fitness facilities. During warm months, six outdoor red clay courts beckon competitive tennis athletes, and four indoor courts accommodate year-round play. The indoor pool allows swimmers to hone their butterfly stroke, and the outdoor pool allows butterflies to emulate humans by doing cannonballs. The complex’s fitness facility bolsters muscle mass with free weights, Keiser fitness machines, and spin bikes.
It all starts with a blank 16"x20" canvas. From there, a group of friends grabs hold of brushes and paints?all supplied by Paint 2gether?and starts to create. Laughter fills the painting party, and at its end everyone walks a way with their very own painting, the subject of which changes depending on the particular session. Aside from these sort of painting parties, Paint 2gether's talented staff also teaches art classes for kids and adults, which focus on subjects like painting with acrylics or drawing with copic markers.
Auburn Yoga & Pilates Center owner Jennifer Fleury-Lawson fulfills her passion for teaching while creating a community of yogis so dedicated to improving their physical and mental health they earned the studio the Auburn Chamber of Commerce's award for Best Fitness Facility four years in a row. Along with a skilled staff of instructors, Jennifer oversees a schedule of low-impact workout regimens that includes a mélange of dynamic and restorative yoga styles, Pilates mat sessions, and spinning classes capable of leaving students of all skill and fitness levels as breathless as an easily startled blowfish.
