Though it's often said that the game of golf requires a lifetime to master, it seems the world neglected to mention that to Philadelphia Golf Lessons’ maestro Adz Kozlowski. Adz's ascendancy to membership in the PGA of America required only eight years; he first started golfing as a 14-year-old and won his pro certification by the age of 22, beginning a 20-year-and-running career as a reputed instructor with an impressive competitive resume, as evidenced by the sizzling round of 67 he carded at a 2006 New Jersey pro invitational.

Adz focuses on making the most of his pupils' natural swing motions by placing emphasis on the "impact position," or the orientation of the clubhead as it makes contact with golf balls or neighbors' flowerbeds. Adz has also created two golf instructional DVDs—"'N Synch Golf" and "Stroke Savers Golf"—which cover concepts such as how to adapt a smoother swing tempo, tackle every type of short-game shot, and hypnotize fellow golfers into giving pupils a gimme on any putt within 10 feet of the cup.

Golf Evolution strives to transform butterfingered putt pendulators into stroke-savvy sultans through a geometry-based teaching technique that has the golfer shift their weight forward to help them push and draw the ball.

20 world famous golf courses come to life on the immense screens of Baylinks Golf's four High Definition golf simulators, letting golfers enjoy high-profile links in the climate controlled comfort of a high tech simulator. Suited for on-course play as well as practice, the simulators record a host of variables for each golf shot, including ball speed, clubhead speed, and spin, projecting shot trajectory with more accuracy than by asking a three-wood how the swing felt. Sensors ensure that golfers experience a lifelike round as they play fantasy courses such as Pebble Beach Golf Links, Torrey Pines, and Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The simulators also boast driving range modules, allowing golfers to practice their backswing, hip turn, and mid-swing sneeze attacks.

Sensei and trainers converge in Voltage’s studio to teach the ancient art of karate to kids and teens, or amp up heart rates with more modern fitness classes. Adults work out alongside peers in six upbeat and challenging group classes, the majority of which incorporate a dance-party atmosphere. Both belly dancing and Red Hot Dance help exercisers shimmy off calories and tone physiques with a variety of moves, from core-toning twirls to fast-paced choreography set to Top 40 hits. For a more sporting session, Piloxing blends the cardiovascular workout of boxing’s bobbing and weaving with the same ab-strengthening Pilates moves that boxers use to celebrate a KO.

Meanwhile, in the kids' studio, Leopard Cub classes (4–6 year olds) teaches the basics of karate, while the junior’s club (for 7–10 year olds) builds on those foundational lessons with more advanced kicks and punches. Karate instructors extend their fighting fervor to teenagers and adults, bringing the two age groups together more effectively than a Pat Boone Sings Carly Rae Jepson album.
