At Minnesota Valley Martial Arts, exercisers expand minds and tighten bodies during eight cardio-kickboxing classes. Led by the studio's experienced trainers, each one-hour class welcomes students of all ages with intense aerobic exercise, targeted abdominal training, and reenactments of the street-fight scene from Mary Poppins. Students accelerate heart rates with quick jabs and commanding roundhouse kicks in classes of 10–30 pupils, gaining physical skill as well as metaphysical camaraderie. Lessons take place at 7 p.m. Monday–Thursday and 8 a.m. on Saturday, allowing students to space out sessions however they like. Students are advised to wear comfortable clothing as well as cross-trainer shoes for easier maneuverability and added protection during post-class games of Red Rover.
Lake Wissota Golf and Southern Hills Golf courses feature traditional well-kempt greens and challenging obstacles. Measuring more than 6,000 yards each from start to finish, these ball-battered battlegrounds envelop players in grandiose frondescence as they steer dimpled warriors past water hazards and sand traps filled with frowns. Each hole greets gurus and greenhorns with three sets of tee boxes from which to swing, marked by specific colors according to difficulty. Rather than slow roasting clubs before rounds, players can warm up naturally with a small bucket of balls on the full-sized driving ranges, or swing equipment-toting hatchbacks up to one of the full-service pro shops to procure hole-conquering provisions. Both locations recommend scheduling tee times in advance.
Parkview Golf Club’s full-length driving range lets clubbers perfect their swings through the winter months. Golfers keep comfortable inside one of the three heated stalls, each equipped with a recently renovated oversize teeing area that allows ample space to swing or wind up for a hammer throw. Today’s Groupon can be used over one or several visits, so golfers can test their endurance during one thwacking frenzy or play over several visits to chart the positive effects of an all-bermuda-grass diet. Aim at this link to check stall availability.
