Symmetry in facial features is thought to be especially attractive, but at SG Human Performance, the team is more focused on the beauty of symmetrical motion. During initial one-on-one consultations, trainers assess newcomers with the Functional Movement Screen, which helps them identify asymmetries and imperfections in clients’ day-to-day movements and track their progress.

The golf fitness program helps players of all levels identify physical limitations that are affecting swings. With the assistance of a Titleist Performance Institute–certified instructor, golfers work toward improved ball distance and accuracy, injury prevention, and golf-swing efficiency.

Husband-and-wife duo Mark and Nikki founded the studio to help clients correct these imbalances, and attain the alignment most conducive to fat burning. They achieve this with the help of their team of certified instructors through group classes and more intimate training sessions. Known as the "Art of Eight Limbs," muay thai kickboxing classes use pad training to help participants develop speed, power, cardiovascular endurance, and fighting spirit. Group sessions may also focus on yoga or kettlebell workouts alongside muscle-building exercises that utilize tractor tires and medicine balls, which can be used as weights or swallowed pill-style.

The nine-hole executive course at Pine Lake Golf & Tennis Club—designed more than four decades ago for the use of homeowners in the Pine Lake housing area—today welcomes golfers of all skill levels and domicile locations. Beginners tackle the course’s straightforward fairways and greens, whereas skilled golfers can hone their short game on holes ranging in length from the 111-yard seventh to the 185-yard fifth. Although the concise fairways demand precision, they don’t foil golfers with the obstacles of other courses, such as sand traps, water hazards, and riddle-slinging bridge trolls. After swinging through a round under the gaze of the Pine Lake water tower, players can head to the tennis courts or drop by the pro shop to pick up new tees for staking pesky pint-sized vampires.

Course at a Glance:

  • Nine-hole, par-27 executive course
  • Length of 1,398 yards
  • Three tee options

The fairways on Table Creek Golf Course's 18 holes bound across the rolling hills of southeast Nebraska for a challenging 6,253-yard pin-hunting exhibition. A relatively short course even when played from the tips, the truncated layout has slick, bent--grass greens, deceptive elevation changes, and flagsticks that covertly shift as players approach the greens. Rippling waters pool and flow throughout the picturesque par 71 course, adding a sense of tranquility and threatening to absorb ill-struck shots. To augment their birdie-garnering form, clubbers can fine-tune their swing at the driving range, recruit the latest course fashions at the pro shop, or learn to cut tender steaks using a divot tool at the cozy clubhouse.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course

  • Bent-grass greens

  • Length of 6,253 yards from the farthest tees

  • Course rating of 71.3 from the farthest tees

  • Slope rating of 122 from the farthest tees

  • Three tee options

Today, it's undeniable: Jazzercise is a worldwide empire, spanning more than 1,800 locations and 32,000 weekly classes across the globe. It's also hip; gone are the leotards and legwarmers of the 1980s, replaced with a high-intensity blend of cardio, strength training, kickboxing and power yoga performed to hits by chart-toppers from Shakira to Justin Timberlake. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set, with recent additions such as Fusion, Core, and Strike broadening the workouts' variety and application. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background. This sense of community keeps Jazzercise devotees coming back, but so too do the results; benefits ranging from weight loss and boosted core strength to increased flexibility and stress relief.

Jazzercise's continued success can be traced to the innovation of its founder, Judi Sheppard Missett. While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, she decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. Little did she know that this ?just for fun? class was the prototype for what would become the Jazzercise sensation.

Until the mid '90s, a ball hit at River Wilds Golf Club could travel thousands of yards?that is, if it happened to fall into a cockpit at the adjacent Blair Airport. But then the airport moved away, and the course, originally opened in 1944 as a private club, expanded from 9 to 18 holes and became public. The tarmac hazards are no longer there, but the course still challenges players with trees, bunkers, and a meandering creek. The par 72 championship course spreads to a full length of 6,562 yards from the back tees, with an additional two sets to accommodate all skill levels.

To ready themselves for this challenge, players can practice on a range with an 80-yard tee line, the longest in both Nebraska and Iowa. The natural grass tee boxes are rotated daily to keep the sod fresh and prevent emotional attachment with any particular divot.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,562 yards from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole

Kayakjak's and Sage Hill Vineyard have joined forces to create an idyllic escape for twosomes, including outdoor escapades, scenic vineyard views, and tasting fermented fruits. During the romantic overnight, customers visit the family-owned vineyard's tasting room to swish and sip 10 Nebraska-grown libations, including three red wines, five whites, two dessert wines, and unlimited melted-ice wines. The lodge where twosomes stay overlooks the vineyard and boasts a full kitchen, bath, living/dining area, and sleeping space for up to six people ($25 extra per person). Kayakjak’s will bestow each occupant with their own kayak, for either leisurely paddling or fishing, and set them free for a full day on the placid Rock Creek Lake. After spending a day trying to paddle away from the person in the back of your kayak, visitors reboot with a dinner of either enchiladas or beef stew cooked in an outdoor Dutch oven and finished with a dessert of peach cobbler. Duos have flexibility in planning their stay and may opt to have their wine tasting the day they arrive, spend the night in the winery’s lodge, and then kayak the next day, or arrive early for a day of kayaking and stay the night afterward.
