Originally built in 1945 and redesigned by renowned golf architect Tripp Davis in 1998, Lakeside Golf Course’s 18-hole layout spans 6,756 yards of pristine terrain dotted with mature oak trees. The men's par 70 and women's par 71 course has served as a training ground for several veteran PGA Tour winners, including Scott Verplank and Bob Tway. The course’s rolling, bermuda-grass fairways blend into its bentgrass greens, ensuring a smooth surface for putting or lying down to catch golf balls in your teeth.
Pro boxers must keep in peak physical condition. Victory Boxing Club mimics these professional athletes' training programs, using similar workouts to help everyday clients shed pounds and sculpt physiques worthy of being chiseled into cereal boxes.

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.
Coffee Creek Golf Course's 18-hole course integrates groves of trees, rolling terrain, and numerous streams and ponds into a 6,623-yard layout that winds through the rustic scenery of a former horse ranch. The course's front and back nines form two distinct acts of on-course challenges, as the front side roams across relatively open, rolling terrain, setting up a climactic back nine teeming with tight tree lines and water hazards filled with frog civilizations that use golf balls as currency. Slick, bent-grass greens await at the end of every fairway, certain to make even simple putts tricky. Coffee Creek's driving range dutifully prepares pin-hunters' swings to hit the high-fade drive and pinpoint approach necessary to best the par 5 third hole—rated the course's most difficult. An onsite pro shop showcases apparel and accessories from Titleist, Callaway, and Ping, and the Out of Bounds Grill's menu lets players curb post-round cravings without having to eat their stash of broken golf tees.

Framed woven tapestries hang on the wall of The Chiropractic House's waiting room. Down the hall, outlines of tree branches adorn the black curtains that lead to private exam rooms. Both images—intertwining wefts, branching twigs—reflect the philosophy at the core of Dr. Nic Robison's practice: the body's system of interconnected nerves is vital to its health, with any disruption causing its threads to unravel or its leaves to wither. Dr. Robison and his staff help promote the healthy connection between the nerves and the brain, particularly by correcting misalignments in the vertebrae known as subluxations. Fittingly, the center also branches out to give advice about clients' lifestyles, healthy diets, and vitamin intake.
