Elite Fitness sprawls across 7,500 square feet, buffing bods and increasing lung capacity with 65 weight and cardio machines and more than 7,000 pounds of free weights. Group classes, including aerobics, yoga, and jiu-jitsu, ensure repeated workouts through communal encouragement, and complimentary personal trainers motivate muscles that refuse to flex or do their homework. Locker rooms provide lockable storage cubicles for finery and showers for rinsing off nonremovable attire. Members can celebrate successful workouts with a fruit smoothie blended at the Elite Fitness smoothie stand or can give melanin a workout in a stand-up tanning bed. Free parking is provided; however, those who prefer a motorless treadmill can walk or propel a giant hamster ball to the gym along Tay Shore Trail.

Clients may experience tingling and postsession symptoms such as hunger, sleepiness, and the urge to high-kick in front of strangers.
Golfers could spend a whole day at Brooklea Golf & Country Club without hitting the same shot twice. With 27 holes of tee-to-green terrain and a practice facility with a 300-yard driving range, a 6,000-square-foot chipping and putting green, and a short-game area with practice bunker, the complex gives golfers the chance to work on all facets of their game. As the course's grassy centerpiece, the 18-hole championship course unrolls 6,587 yards of tree-lined fairways and fast, bent-grass greens pinched by the occasional water hazard or bunker filled with silica sand. Measuring 1,750 yards, the 9-hole West course packs four par 4s and five par 3s into an abbreviated layout so players can conveniently squeeze a quick round into their schedule without drilling holes into their office floors. Head teaching professional Daryl Cramm helms the Brooklea Golf & Country Club academy, where students of all ages and abilities hone their par-hunting skills.
