The workouts at Hook & Ladder CrossFit may not be as intense as fighting a fire, but they're close. Seasoned firefighter David Pelham and his team of fellow CrossFit Level 1–certified coaches make sure of that. During their daily CrossFit workouts, they push exercisers through a series of pull-ups, squats, pushups, and other functional exercises. By design the workouts should be completed as quickly as possible and can be customized to suit all ages and fitness levels.
Renowned golf architect and Pacific Northwest Golf Association Hall-of-Famer Arthur Vernon Macan conceived Glen Acres’ nine-hole course to challenge golfers of all skill levels and reward their exertions with picturesque views of downtown Seattle. Lush, emerald fairways and impeccably manicured greens coalesce to form one of the most difficult courses in the Puget Sound area—one notorious for its sleek surfaces and caddies who play defensive with tennis rackets. Pairs or quartets must don their argyle thinking caps as they navigate the course’s many hazards, lining up shots and launching them across expanses speckled with lakes and thick curtains of trees. A powered golf cart speeds up the action, though players may stop periodically to spy on Seattle University’s golf squad and glean secrets from the collegiate masters.
Riverbend Golf Complex is a multifaceted training facility that fosters golf-game improvement from tee to green. Golfers hunt birdies and pars across the complex's 18-hole, 6,701-yard course or hone their approach technique with a round at the par-3 course, ideal for those seeking their first hole-in-one or still potty-training their pitching wedge. A 32-stall covered, lighted, and heated driving range helps golfers add new weapons to their on-course arsenal as they take aim at eight target greens spread out in the distance, and a five-member instructional staff of PGA and LPGA pros and apprentices offers a variety of lesson types to keep swings on track. For a more casual session, guests can putt through the tree-lined greens of Riverbend's 18-hole miniature-golf course. The complex also boasts a discount golf store where guests can replace golf clubs they broke while trying to pole-vault across a creek, with equipment from Adams, Bridgestone, Callaway, and other top brands.
