At The Fighting Fit, instructors sharpen both kids’ and adults’ muscles and minds through lessons in krav maga and CrossFit sessions. Hebrew for "close or contact combat," the krav maga was created by Imi Lichtenfeld for the Israeli army, who needed a hand-to-hand fighting system that could be learned by anyone regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability. Unlike traditional martial arts, krav maga involves no forms, but rather teaches students basic self-defense skills. The multipurpose gym also leads CrossFit Bad Boys sessions that jump-start metabolisms and build dynamic, functional strength and balanced fitness. Additionally, the team of instructors offers personal training for individuals who fear being alone in a room with kettlebells.
At Spotlight Taylor 10, the glow of current releases bounces off the giant screen of a cushy theater and pours into the eyes of up to 500 moviegoers. Admission tickets grant access to 1 of 10 theaters, where onscreen flickers elicit laughter, kick-start sorrow, or rekindle dreams of finding one's destiny during a battle with merpeople. At the concessions area, classic cinema fare includes nachos ($4.75) and all-beef hot dogs ($3), and combos corral snacks such as a large popcorn and a large drink ($8.25). Bright blue and yellow décor envelops Spotlight Taylor 10's lobby, where guests can use the joysticks and buttons of arcade games to prepare their fingers for squeezing unpopped popcorn kernels until they scream.

NRA-certified instructor Steven Diadiun and his team combine classroom and supervised live-fire training to qualify students for Michigan Concealed Pistol License, also known as a CPL or CCW permit. In addition to imparting the technical skills necessary to responsibly own and operate a firearm, they also dedicate time to delineating the differences between state and national laws and slate gray and gunmetal gray.
Since 1968, Woodside Meadows Golf Course has tucked away plenty of opportunities for low scores among the lush bluegrass that covers it from first tee box to 18th green. A relatively short undertaking at 5,774 yards from the furthest of two tees, the layout pulls players into confrontations with four large ponds and two small ones during their round, allowing ample opportunity for a refreshing midround cannonball. Before teeing off, players can warm up on the driving range, and an onsite eatery offers snacks such as hot dogs to help players refuel.

Tucked into a curve of the Huron River, Wesburn Golf & Country Club traces its roots back to 1910 and its layout to course architect Wesson Seyburn. Extensive renovations have launched the bluegrass fairways into the modern age, enabling contemporary golfers to putt on sculpted greens that have existed for over a century. Before teeing off, players can warm up at one of the driving range’s 20 hitting stations, and after penciling in their final score, they can head toward the stately brick clubhouse. Here, plaid carpeting and a fireplace paint a comforting atmosphere, and the dining room’s overhead beams provide a place for athletes to do pull-ups until they can bend their clubs into pretzels.

Exo's talented staffers beautify clients from head to toe with a full menu of grooming services. During the shellac manicure (a $35 value), nail technicians buff finger shingles to a dazzling sparkle before brushing on CND shellac color. The high-tech lacquer lasts up to two weeks with a glistening mirror finish, which dries instantly under the onslaught of British knock-knock jokes. This option also grants wrist mitts a thorough mollycoddling with a moisturizing paraffin dip treatment, which also includes exfoliation to force has-been skin cells into retirement.
