Swing through the beauty of Canyon Springs Golf Club, which dresses its 18 championship holes in the lush landscape and history of Texas Hill Country. Traverse your round on the course in style with a provided cart, and confidently plan your chip shot from the fairway to green with your provided GPS. The device might not keep your ball out of sand traps, but it will tell your location, and possibly that of the elusive Carmen San Diego. Between challenging hazards and well-maintained fairways, your day will be riddled with challenges and hopefully blessed by the course's typically ideal weather conditions.
Since sprouting into existence in 2006, Ideal Tennis Academy has fostered future stars by offering training programs throughout the year for all ages and skill levels.

Agni is the Sanskrit word for fire, the element of energy, passion, roiling motion, and marshmallow singing. It is this energy that Agni's experienced instructors bring to all their courses, including intro to Bollywood dance. Bollywood refers to the Hindi-language film industry centered in Mumbai, and with it the iconic songs and dances that enliven the globally popular films. Each class introduces students to the fundamental elements of Bollywood dance, which was modeled on classic Indian dance styles but has grown and changed over the years into its own art form. By the end of your four classes, you're not likely to get cast opposite Shahrukh Khan in a prominent film, but you will have a grasp of the basic moves needed to progress in Bollywood dance. In addition, the exuberant dancing style provides a full-body workout in a non-competitive, joyous environment.
The expert cycle surgeons at Bike World—one of whom was voted best bike mechanic by the San Antonio Current in 2010—are masters at nursing sick duocycles back to an optimal state of road-worthiness. The thorough tune-up involves adjusting the front and rear derailleurs and brakes, truing the wheels, lubing the cables and chain, and wiping down the frame with fancy white gloves. Once your bike is as finely tuned as an instrument made of baseball cards and spokes, feel free to blaze down trails, tracks, and undiscovered shortcuts to celebrities' houses with a renewed sense of fearlessness.
Trained by JuKiDo founder Kyoshi Ivan Ujueta, Haben's Martial Art's head sensei Paul Haben draws from his hard-hitting experience to help students reach their individual goals. Classes cover a range of disciplines including the syncretic style of JuKiDo, which blends the soft defensive styles of judo and jiu-jitsu with the uncompromising strikes of karate and kickboxing. Students can also learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which enables the neutralization of larger opponents through the assistance of the floor, or focused, mixed martial arts for students determined to kick through lead. Since in utero instruction has proven impractical, Haben's Martial Arts accepts students starting at 4 years of age, with classes especially designed for different age groups.

Beyond the vast plains of synthetic turf, putt-putt pugilists can replenish their strength at The Ice & Golf Center's fully stocked concession stand or toast victories in the newly renovated sports bar.
