Husband and wife duo Tabora and Toy Laster, owners of Choice Training Group Fitness, electrify the studio with their characteristic energy. Whether they're dressing up in hokey hula shirts to promote Zumba fitness parties or bringing in guest instructors to host self-defense sessions, the two aim to create a gym that feels like an inclusive club.

Newbies and old hats jump into a diverse set of classes, ranging from group fitness and boot camp, to pole-dancing sessions in the Kandy & Krome room, a mirror-lined, pole-bestrewn sanctuary for flirty fitness. Alongside high-energy cardio classes such as Belly Dance Fusion, Absolute Abs, or Zumba, the studio hosts bachelorette parties, couples massage sessions, and workshops on effective methods for releasing stress.

The Liberty by the Lake Festival is back for another round of family-style Independence Day fun. The party kicks off with a trio of races designed to jump-start the patriotism. A parade follows, complete with patriotic music and floats dedicated to America?s famous landmarks and star-spangled airspace.

Stunt riders wow the crowd on BMX bikes throughout the day. From opening to 8 p.m., attendees can check out the business expo and learn more about local companies. Those with a competitive spirit can test their mettle in salsa-making, wakeboarding, and watermelon speed-eating competitions. Party rockers Professor D have plans to howl at the sun until it drags the day below the horizon, priming the sky for fireworks that cast red and blue sparks over the waters of Lake Lewisville.

Blue Sky Media leverages a bevy of strategic marketing partnerships with premier Texas courses to grant golfers access to some of the state's finest fairways. The group's annual Blue Sky Golf Passes dole out fistfuls of discounts to courses throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, freeing up some coins for golfers to use as ball-markers or throw into water hazards to wish for more coins. Between putts and drives, discounts on pro shop gear and fare refuel hard-swinging golfers and caddies exhausted from polishing the dimples of each ball.

Big Boar Tactical doesn't train its clientele with typical stationary, paper targets. Instead, the trainers?each of whom has more than 12 years of professional armed-bodyguard experience?take beginners through drills that teach relevant skills. These might include learning to draw a gun, move, and shoot during the intro to handgun class or honing one-handed accuracy and using cover and concealment during the tactical combat handgun training course. These instructors can also help customers obtain concealed-handgun licenses or master the use of various other firearms.

Course architect Tripp Davis drew inspiration from both classic Scottish links and California’s famous Monterey Peninsula courses when crafting Stewart Peninsula Golf Course, an 18-hole layout touched on all sides by the waters of Lake Lewisville. Much like the conditions found at Stewart Peninsula’s high-profile muses, ever-shifting winds play a large factor in course play, challenging golfers who struggle to keep balls low or prefer to steer their carts with massive sails. The course also features two terraced par 5s—holes 9 and 18—that recall seaside holes at Harbour Town and Pebble Beach and end both 9s in dramatic fashion. Before taking to the first tee, clubbers can head to the driving range, where warm-up sessions will help prevent them from losing their balls in the abyss of Lake Lewisville or the neighboring ruptures in the fabric of space time.
