At Airborne Trampoline KW, leapers of all ages defy gravity on the centre's six Olympic-style trampolines. Custom mats and padding surround each trampoline to ensure safe landings. Trampoline coaches certified by Gymnastics Ontario and the NCCP watch over visiting jumpers and recreational classes of students aged 6 through adult as they leap, flip, and twirl through basic moves and advanced tricks. When not leading classes, coaches also host tryouts for an in-house competition team. The centre also provides decorated private rooms and basic catering services for birthday parties, during which children combine the joy of birthdays with the thrill of hugging clouds they've herded indoors.
At Gymalaya, trainers introduce kids ages 18 months to 10 years to the fun and challenging elements of gymnastics. Two studios maintain kid-friendly workout zones marked by brightly coloured walls and equipment scaled down to accommodate tiny hands, huge imaginations, and average acrophobia. The gym's noncompetitive environment emphasizes fun; although more advanced classes teach difficult skills such as back handsprings and round-offs, all teachers maintain a focus on building strength and confidence.
Spinbuddies Pole Studio wants workouts to be fun. That's why its friendly, seasoned instructors—some with more than three years of experience—offer pole-dancing classes designed for students of all ages and levels of fitness. While learning pole moves, students can burn up to 350 calories in one session and tone their arms, shoulders, and backs. The workouts also help build strong cores, enhance flexibility, and foster confidence. For bachelorette gatherings or girls' nights out, Spinbuddies hosts lively parties to teach moves to groups of 10 or more as they snack on appetizers and cocktails.
Each member of Bikram Yoga Canada’s talented team of instructors possesses a sage yogic know-how borne of their participation in a 10-week certification course taught by Bikram Choudhury in California. Over the course of this rigorous program, the posing pedagogues learned the essentials of heated movement modality, spending hours stuffing their brains with wisdom ranging from yoga philosophy and anatomy to a detailed study of each pose. While the world-renowned course provides the team with an unshakable foundation, the instructors—firm believers that learning is a never-ending endeavour—undergo re-certification every three years to ensure that they remain abreast of current practices. With this impeccably trained and passionate staff at the helm of every sweat-inducing class, Bikram Yoga Canada offers students of all experience levels a chance to experience the physical detoxification afforded by stretching sessions within their balmy studio. During each class, the instructors put their hard-earned teaching skills into practice as they lead pupils through a series of 26 postures, known as asanas, designed to warm and stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons while melting away tension and the frozen dinners stored in the hearts of pupils.
Balls rumble down World Bowl’s 40 polished lanes as the glowing lights of video projection screens glint off determined bowlers’ eyes. Seated beside their chosen lane, bowlers can lace up their shoes, listen for the echoes of crashing pins, and refer to a computerized scoring system that keeps track of every strike, spare, and wandering turkey. Between games, roll over to World Bowl's fully licensed snack barwhere servers refill empty stomachs and hollow bowling balls with pizza and drinks such as draft beer, cocktails, and wine. Bowlers can also opt to check out disco bowling on Friday and Saturday nights for alley antics paired with hip-shaking tunes or sharpen their hand-eye coordination through button-smashing melees or foosball matches in the arcade.

The piercing clang of well-struck drives resonates across the grounds at Golden Ridge Golf, their echoes beckoning to clubbers to come groom their game at the multifaceted complex. Guests can smooth out rough-edged swings with a stint at the 300-yard driving range, where players can hit off of natural grass or faux-turf mats and take cover in sheltered hitting bays during rainstorms or pelican pranks. An 18-hole mini-golf course channels the charm of an old country town with a decorative wagon, general store facade, and putters that double as moustache combs. All of the grounds’ score-shaving resources are utilized to the fullest during Golf Academy clinics and lessons, which are overseen by CPGA-certified pro and former touring professional Gordie Burns.
