Hemmed into the rippling hills of Lewiston, Bryden Canyon Golf Course was established in 1974. Golfers of all experience levels can find a challenge, especially on the skill-testing par 4 holes and the risk-rewarding par 5's. Away from the course, visitors can stock up on gear and friendly advice at the pro shop. They can also refuel their tanks at the bar and grill and prepare for their next round by taking part in the facility's camps, clinics, and private lessons.

Snap Fitness's easyFIT monitor is a small, clip-on accelerometer that helps keep track of daily exercise. Unlike pedometers that merely measure steps and spy on daydreams, the easyFIT monitor senses the intensity and duration of physical activity, transmogrifying those stats into simple, numerical points that help assess activity levels from sedentary to peak performance. In addition to tracking exercise in real time, easyFIT monitors can connect to the wearer's personal web portal to upload data and create fitness graphs that help show progress, snag exercise suggestions, and stave off the temptation of living next to a hamburger farm. Watch a video about the easyFit here.
No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It's a philosophy that?s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part community center, Curves is a women?s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Curves has teamed up with health and fitness coach Jillian Michaels to develop full-body, 30-minute workouts that kick-start weight loss, combining strength training, cardio, and stretching into sessions that torch fat, build strength, boost intensity, and prevent plateaus. These workouts are enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program, available for an extra fee, which is rooted in Curves' method for effective weight loss in that it supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach.
People gather around a fireplace inside a candle-lined room. Any anxiety dissipates as they soak up the heat and leaf through colorful magazines. They’re not inside a spa or a cozy lodge—they’re in the office of Collins Family Dentistry, a practice that’s served the Spokane community for more than 40 years and is helmed by father and son Dr. Ken Collins Sr. and Dr. Chris Collins](http://www.thespokanedentist.com/about). The duo tends to choppers with the utmost care, focusing on patient comfort as they reshape gum tissue with gentle lasers and straighten smiles with Invisalign aligners. Extractions are a rarity at this practice, and when inserting dental implants, the dentists enlist the help of i-CAT scans, which help them plan the entire procedure ahead of time. To stay on top of their game, both dentists complete more than 100 hours of continuing education each year. The same bricks that flank the fireplace line the exam room and reception desk, encouraging patients to relax during checkups, cleanings, and the gripping MacGyver plotlines that comprise most people’s daydreams. Experienced staffers complement this warm atmosphere with their friendly personalities, helping patients book appointments in the office, over the phone, or through a convenient online scheduler.
The Fairways Golf Course?s layout unfurls over rolling terrain teeming with wetlands and native grasses. Multiple water hazards and fast greens pose challenges for experienced players, and relatively open fairways and a set of closer, forward tees cater to golfers of all experience levels. A dramatic conclusion awaits at the par-4, 419-yard 18th hole?the course?s most challenging hole?where golfers must contend with a dog-leg right and a small pond that arches around the front and left sides of the green. Golfers can prepare for the round at the driving range and practice green, or simply ask the course?s beverage-cart operator for the liquid cure for a slice-prone swing.
