As the annual host of the Eastern Amateur Golf Championship since 1957, Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club's championship course has attracted some of the country's greatest players on their journey to the PGA Tour. As golfers traverse each hole from tee to green, they can imagine themselves tracing the footsteps of Ben Crenshaw and Curtis Strange, both of whom played in the Eastern Amateur before illustrious PGA careers, during which they won a combined four major victories without ever corking a driver. Today, the 6,642-yard, par-70 course still hugs the Elizabeth River, utilizing the natural landscape with a challenging layout originally envisioned by course designer Dick Wilson in 1948. The course also benefits from more recent refurbishments that made the greens and bermuda-grass fairways more resilient. A private establishment, Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club complements its golf course with a six-court tennis complex and an Olympic-size, outdoor swimming pool. The club also boasts two restaurants with two patios, where guests can enjoy views of the Elizabeth River and attempt to count the leaves on every tree in the vicinity.

Staffed by a team of nine eye doctors and surgeons, Tidewater Eye Center has racked up recognition in three categories from HamptonRoads.com's Best of Hampton Roads, including Best Health Care Provider and Best Place for Laser Vision Correction. Patients can receive a variety of optometry services at each of the clinic?s three locations, including basic eye exams; treatments for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration; and even aesthetic procedures, including eyelid surgery. Yet, the center?s most popular treatment is blade-free LASIK eye surgery, which eliminates the need for lenses and soda-bottle monocles in as little as 15 minutes.

Dr. Corey Carwile of Tidewater Chiropractic recognizes that not everyone is an athlete?though Dr. Carwile did play soccer in college? the licensed chiropractor takes the time to customize treatments to fit the needs and health goals of each client. The doctor alleviates headaches, muscle soreness, and body aches with traditional adjustment techniques as well as with computerized instruments from Pulstar and Impulse iQ that chart progress digitally. The office also offers massage from a licensed therapist, exercise instruction, Lipo-Light treatments, and better lifestyle guidance than a Magic 8-Ball inside a fortune cookie.

Dominion Dentistry’s Dr. Richard Sweeney involves patients in every step of the treatment-planning process and thoroughly explains all available options. Checkups begin with a set of four bite-wing x-rays that illuminate any existing or potential issues such as periodontal defects or cavities brought on from gargling maple syrup. Patients then alight in their personal exam room for a thorough cleaning while relaxing by watching TV, viewing videos stored on a personal iPod, or listening to the surround-sound music system. Once a dental hygienist has swept oral cobblestones clear of plaque films and tartar deposits, Dr. Sweeney examines freshened mouths for evidence of decay or disease and checks under tongues for misplaced wads of gums.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
