The Edge's Revolution program is an eight-week body-change contest that fuses nutritional guidance, personal training, and weekly group exercise sessions. Trainers document your metamorphosis with before-and-after measurements and photos, and by meticulously chiseling fitness goals into stone. Start sculpting with one personal-training and Pilates session, then sweat in weekly group workouts that prevent plateaus by pushing boundaries like a gerrymandering student council president. An included nutrition guide with DVD joins body sculptors on fitness sojourns with eating tips to supplement gym work. Revolutionaries also get access to a community that spans from the gym to an online group, providing a resource for advice, support, and camaraderie.

A diverse collection of mature trees populates Oronoque Country Club's 18-hole course, their sturdy trunks imbuing the 6,575-yard layout with the venerable feel that only comes with age. However, the trees are far from just a cosmetic asset. Whether casting their shadows over straight fairways or using their knotty arms to block corner-cutting drives on the course's five dog-leg holes, the trees play a major role in making the mid-length course both challenging to golfers and attractive to retirement-age squirrels. The course also features two ponds that come into play, including one that creates a forced-carry tee shot on the par 3 third hole. Elsewhere, the club boasts a driving range, a practice green, and a trio of golf instructors that help correct swings and teach visitors to ride bareback on golf carts.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,575 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 73.7 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

The din of go-kart buzzing floats through the air throughout Stratford Speedway, calling drivers to their destinies: some as race-day participants, and others as champs. Drivers taller than 54 inches take the helm of low-sitting crafts adorned with real corporate brands to mimic true racecars. As drivers zoom around the wide, road-size track, tires line each edge, helping to prevent detours and wrong turns. Races tend to last five minutes each, and cars speed around the grand prix-style track for 20–25 laps. The speedway also serves as a welcoming oasis for birthday parties and events, with the track available for private rental by the half-hour and hour.

The interactive exhibits at Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre chronicle the impact of Alberta’s oil boom from the first drilling in 1947 to discoveries in the present day. Traipse back in time through the Centre’s collection of historical artifacts, letting eyes feast on a banquet of oil-patch memorabilia, rig equipment, and models. Or, ensconced in a theatre designed to look like a giant drill bit, visitors can embark on a virtual journey 1,700 meters below the earth's surface. A cadre of expert guides circulates throughout the exhibits, stopping to answer visitors’ questions such as, "How did oil transform Alberta’s formerly agrarian economy?" and "Does oil really hate water that much?" Guests may also meander through the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame, which pays homage to the enormous contributions of 124 petroleum-steeped pioneers and heroes through a series of photos and personal stories. Members of the Leduc #1 drilling crew and Hall of Famers have also been known to put in appearances at the Centre, regaling lucky day-trippers with tales of bygone years and reenactments of their favourite moments in oil’s 374-million-year history.
