Vivid, cartoon-style illustrations cover the walls of the four theme party rooms at Kidz Quarterz, where sea animals look out from deep blue depths and woodland creatures peer around trees. However, partygoers don’t spend all their time in these rooms; instead they roam throughout the indoor facility, careening down a slide or crawling through tunnels. They hone hand-eye coordination with classic games in the arcade, where they earn tickets to trade in for prizes or to sew together to make a quilt. Toddlers play safely in their own exclusive soft-surface area, and families can refuel in the restaurant.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine manoeuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches 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.

Teams at Sniper Paintball would do well to consider their tactics before heading onto the fields, as each comes with its own set of strategic difficulties and opportunities. Take, for instance, Tyranny Castle, a 15,000-square-foot stronghold surrounded by a towering outer wall. To storm the front would end in a definite splattering, as the entrance forms a chokepoint directly in the crosshairs of those hiding in the castle’s sniper tower. However, the field is surrounded on all sides by trenches and bunkers that, if properly used, could turn the seemingly impenetrable fortress into a pressure cooker for the defenders. This strategic importance extends to the sparse shacks and cars of Peasantville, the close-quarters hallways of the indoor field, and the geometric cover and giant spools on the speedball field.
Like the athletes they coach on beams and pommel horses, Salto Gymnastics' experienced instructors follow a balanced approach in their classes. They bolster students' physical abilities through progressing classes that build muscle, coordination, and technique, while also showing them how to set goals for themselves and train safely. With their national program, they prepare gymnasts for the rigors of large-scale competition, such as maintaining perfect form during the floor routine portion of tournaments or job interviews, and preschool-age classes help growing children fine tune basic coordination and interact with others.
British Columbia local and Lakers player Steve Nash created his fleet of namesake Fitness World & Sports Clubs to honour the tenets of healthy living. The classes at both Fitness World and Sports Club locations are taught by engaging instructors who impart students with methods for getting fit that don’t involve traditional livestock lifting. Group fitness trainers lead exercisers through Bball Blast's stability-ball training, ICE indoor-cycling intensives, and Cardio Core's combinations of step, cardio kickboxing, and abdominal exercises. The Nash Smash class uses full-body metabolic training to sternly badger moping muscles into action, and Women on Weights builds toned musculature by pitting females against leaden opponents. Personal training sessions fit workouts for each client, tailoring them to individual's goals and personal theme song.
The amenities at each club differ—the Burnaby location boasts a swimming pool and spacious whirlpool. The staff strives to create a healthy environment for members and the earth alike, with floors made from sustainable bamboo and locker panels build with recycled car tires.
