Tim Chrzan began playing golf in 1963. From the start, he worked with instructors whose methods were ahead of their time, which helped Tim earn a PGA membership in 1983. Today, the PGA Pro heads the instructional efforts at Woods to Wedges: a year-round practice facility equipped with both indoor and outdoor training areas.?

Like his instructors decades ago, Tim has developed a method that is logical and easy to follow for all levels. He combines that wisdom with modern technology, including a putting analyzer and a full-swing bay that measures everything from club speed and path to ball flight and spin. Outside the Woods to Wedges facility, Tim works with golfers at chipping targets, faux bunkers, and even on a replica fairway. In addition to lessons, Woods to Wedges also offers club repairs and custom fitting services.

An organization of coaches with years of experience studying the game, Breakthrough Basketball teaches clinics for aspiring young ballers. With five 90-minute sessions, students will drill on dribbling and footwork concepts until they double-pivot in their sleep and perform hook shots while bowling. Burgeoning ball-handling skills are nurtured as players learn fundamental techniques—such as post footwork, perimeter footwork, shooting, and scoring off the dribble—through repetition and intense instruction. At no time do Breakthrough Basketball's lessons break into 5-on-5 games or senior bridge tournaments. Clinics will be held at Anamosa school gyms, and separate classes are held for children aged 7 to 10 and those 11 or older.

As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they?re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness?s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.

Like joining the Army with a Get Out of Army Free card in your back pocket, the Squaw Creek Army Challenge pits mud-caked combatants against the same obstacle courses used to condition and train modern soldiers. Designed by Army officers still on active duty, the race covers over three miles of treacherous terrain where contestants run, walk, and slither to the finish line. Mixing physical and mental challenges, the fun run creates team camaraderie and obliterates recent mani-pedi work, and ends with awards for the top males, females, couples, and teams.

Cleaved through a dense forest of trees within Wapsipinicon State Park and situated along a bend in the river of the same name, the park?s nine-hole golf course awaits golfers of all skill levels. The course stretches to 3,187 yards, challenging players with tight fairways lined by dense foliage. The history-steeped course opened in 1923, and its clubhouse followed a year later, built entirely by prison labor with rock from the river bluffs, white-oak logs hauled by horse-drawn bobsleds, and a fireplace made with the world's only fireproof stones.

ActivEdge Fitness Club's large, two-story fitness temple burns calories with its high-tech cardio deck featuring mounted flat-screen TVs, drowns them in a 25-meter lap pool, and scares them off with the help of peers in more than 20 fitness classes. On the first level, members pump free-weights on a carpeted floor that cushions joint strain, or on a variety of machines designed to sculpt lats, glutes, and thighs. As parents make a splash in aqua aerobics, their kids can burn off excess energy and talk about their favorite characters from Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations in the supervised childcare center. Members can also make use of the club's basketball court and follow it up with a trip to the tanning room. For a high-intensity full-body-blasting boot camp, the gym’s own GTX program answers with an intense cross-training regimen. Instructors lead groups through a series of interval stations where clients build muscle definition and whip cardiovascular systems into shape with the help of punching bags and medicine balls laid out on turf and rubber floors. During those training sessions, guests lift and push giant tractor tires, swing heavy ropes, and hop high onto plyometric boxes—all exercises that incorporate functional movements to help people perform everyday tasks, such as hurling giant tractor tires into the air and lassoing them with heavy ropes.
