So much more than just teaching kids self-defense, martial arts develop invaluable real-world skills such as respect, self-discipline, and understanding every reference in The Karate Kid. At ATA Martial Arts, instructors work with kids as young as 4 years old to begin developing the skills and mindset necessary to move through the rainbow of belts.
Golf: Inside & Out’s resident golf guru David Geier offers a comprehensive approach to golf training, helping golfers on their path to mastering the technical, tactical, physical, and mental elements of the game. As players pulverize golf balls at the studio’s indoor hitting bays, the watchful instructor observes and analyzes each swing with video technology. Golf students benefit from watching a video of their swings in slow motion, helping them understand nuggets of corrective advice and sympathize with brutally compressed golf balls. Geier also teaches principles of course management, physical training, and the mental and emotional training necessary to execute golf shots on a subconscious level, a process which can incorporate hypnotherapy.
Golf: Inside & Out also helps aspiring Arnold Palmers refine their skills with advanced club-fitting services. The shop's high-tech module evaluates customers' putts and swings, then tailors a custom blueprint that helps determine correct shaft flex, launch angle, and grip size. The device can also clarify the most compatible ball for a particular club.
Established in 1963, Valleaire Golf Club is carved into the wooded landscape of Hinckley, Ohio. The golf club stays open year-round, even during the winter, so long as the course hasn't been buried by snow or taken over by vacationing polar bears. During rounds, players navigate the 18-hole, par 72 layout while overcoming various obstacles?especially water, which comes into play on nearly half the holes. After they've successfully passed all the course's challenges, golfers can celebrate their accomplishments by visiting the clubhouse or stocking up on gear in the pro shop.
