  • Liaison College Durham Region
    The Chef instructor at Liaison College shares the art of cooking and stuffs patron's recipe rolodexes during culinary lessons that focus on soups, sushi, sauces, and tapas. The homemade pasta and sauce class, designed for 16–18 students, encourages amateur hands to fashion a spread of pesto flavoured fettucine, black olive papardelle, and potato gnocchi into fun and interesting shapes which they can later taste in class or spoon-feed at home to snoring loved ones. During the sushi lesson, spicy salmon and the state of California fit neatly into sushi rolls, and the knife skills class teaches sophisticated paring choreography to aspiring culinary swordsmen. To populate dinner party dessert trays, the Chef also enlarges the pupils in hungry eyes with a pastry tutelage that yields white chocolate cranberry biscotti, butter pecan tarts, and classic apple turnovers.

  • Calabogie Motorsports Park
    3.5 seconds. That's all it takes the Porsche GT3 to go from a standstill to 100 kph. At that point, though, the car is nowhere near its full potential. 200 kph and 300 kph pass by in a blur of asphalt, until the engine peaks at 315 kph. It's a feat that makes the term supercar seem like no exaggeration. That Porsche is just one of seven high-speed luxury vehicles in G1Tour's garages. Their other automotive stars boast names like Ferrari, Audi, and Lamborghini, all of which accelerate to speeds worthy of Canada's best race tracks?which is exactly where G1Tour operates. The company hands over the keys and sends customers zipping around closed tracks throughout Quebec and Ontario, including Calabogie Motorsports Park and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. (All that's required is a valid driver's license and a brief training session.) G1Tour also rents its fleet for nights out on the town or afternoons of impressing the city's drive-through workers.

  • Fitness Bootcamp Canada
    For Debbie Benko, owner of Fitness Bootcamp Canada, boot camps aren’t just for sculpting muscles and melting calories. They’re a tool for shedding hang-ups and unlocking pent-up potential. A certified personal trainer and enthusiastic life coach, Debbie draws upon more than 20 years of fitness expertise and recent training in neuro-linguistic programming to help women become more focused and resilient. She’s also driven by an important lesson learned while teaching English overseas: everyone wants to feel valued, no matter how they look, where they live, or what language they speak. To blaze a trail to the future, people often need to look at the past, at those times when they’ve felt undervalued or misunderstood. “That’s why I’m about making breakthroughs,” Debbie explains. “I help my clients take a close look at why they want to accomplish a particular goal and how their past has affected that goal so far.” Listening carefully is a key to achieving these breakthroughs, as is a strong support system. During one-on-one activities such as nutrition consultations, Debbie showers clients with personal attention while helping them make positive changes in their lives, from planning healthier meals to establishing clear boundaries with overly clingy shadows. She rallies exercisers of all levels for indoor boot-camp classes, where team-like camaraderie propels each participant toward goals while enhancing confidence and self-esteem. Most classes teem with calisthenics, plyometrics, and short sprints, which boost energy levels while toning muscles throughout the body. Exercises are often performed in intervals to maximize calorie burn and cultivate endurance at a manageable pace.

  • Wings & Slicks
    Wings & Slicks' professional instructors pass on heart-pumping tutelage during stunt-driving and formula-car-racing experiences in the United States and Canada. The pro drivers impart pupils with the skills needed to execute a variety of as-seen-on-TV stunts, including slalom-course runs and reverse 180-degree spins, or to navigate the track in a Formula 2000 car capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds. Each once-in-a-lifetime adventure revs up adrenalin levels while prioritizing safety; every experience begins with a lesson and includes protective equipment. Wings & Slicks, which was recently featured in a The Globe and Mail story, also baits competitive edges with timed events that pit drivers head-to-head in a test of dexterity, skill, and not closing one’s eyes during the hard parts.
