8 Limb Muay Thai club leads female exercisers through the art of Muay Thai–enhanced cardio in two-hour weekly classes. Certified personal trainer, amateur fighter, and Kru-certified Catherine MacLean leads ladies through cardio exercises focused on Muay Thai's punches and kicks using hands, feet, knees, elbows, and well-timed eyebrow furrows. Femme fatales alternate combat-adapted exercises with floor-bound Pilates sets aimed at toning core muscles. Kru Catherine molds class content to accommodate exercisers of all experience levels, aiding ladies in increasing agility, flexibility, strength, and ability to punch perfect circles through notebook paper. Classes require no additional equipment or fees, other than participants’ own bodies. Club facilities challenge athletes to bouts and to sophisticated philosophical debates in two square boxing rings and on a panoply of exercise equipment ranging from punching bags to skipping ropes.

Wheel worshippers flock to this cycle temple to peruse one of the largest bicycle selections in Canada. With hundreds of velocipedes from among the world's leading brands, such as Norco, Kona, and Santa Cruz, Cychotic outfits all nongas guzzlers, from professional BMX stuntmen to beginner rim riders. The shop's warehouse-style den teems with varieties of jump bikes, hybrids, road bikes, and downhill specialties for those allergic to lactic acid. Rubber revolutionaries can embellish their balancing acts with colourful chrome handlebars ($60–$90), a psychedelic bike chain ($30), or an industrious aluminum sprocket ($69). Riding gloves and helmets also adorn Cychotic's citrus-coloured walls to swaddle savvy cyclists and extreme chandelier swingers in safety. An on-site workshop repairs, services, and assembles all pedal-pushing mobiles, enlisting a team of professional rehabilitees to perform a standard tune-up ($40) or refurbish weathered parts. All bikes come equipped with a full warranty.
Axtion's indoor attractions help kids and parents fill their daily quotas for fun and exercise regardless of weather conditions. Standing 24 feet high, a rock-climbing wall beckons visitors to grip its colourful handholds, and ropes and ladders let climbers scale direct routes to the ceiling. An auto-belay system accompanies each of these activities, safely carrying climbers down to earth like the parachutes stowed inside every bird's beak. Alternatively, visitors can take off their harnesses and tackle the Spider Mountain Climb. This towering cylinder challenges kids to climb, wiggle, and weave through seven levels of stretchy bands. Aside from these climbing activities, the indoor play haven lets kids soar down inflated slides and reenact famous traffic jams at a pint-sized car track.
Sculpted into the rocky hillsides that comprise the shores of an Atlantic Ocean inlet, The View Golf Resort charms clubbers with sweeping vistas throughout its nine-hole, executive course. Seaside breezes snake through groves of pine trees and fairway-side shrubs, cooling off players and hot-tempered 9-irons as they traverse the 2,250-yard layout. The course challenges duffers with narrow fairways cleaved through ponds, sand traps, and natural hazards, placing accurate shot-making at a premium.
Along with its scenic fairway chain, The View Golf Resort regales guests with two distinct eating options—the Dining Room and Lounge—that serve a menu of traditional Newfoundland cuisine. Six well-appointed suites dot the resort’s placid expanse, providing overnight accommodations for those hoping to enjoy a romantic getaway with their golf bag or spend a weekend boating, hiking, or fishing in the resort’s rustic surroundings.
