Working 50 hours a week in a large corporate office, Gordon Aitken could almost feel his creative muscles atrophying. So instead of losing them forever, Gordon lifted his artistic legs and took the step toward his new career as a photographer. That’s how he met his soulmate and collaborator, Grainne, who, coincidentally enough, also walked away from a fast-paced career in international management consulting after years of yearning to express her creativity through photography.
After a chance meeting at an international photographers’ conference, the duo joined forces to open Art and Soul Photography, focusing on creating custom pieces that celebrate subjects with style and individuality. Together, the two have 30 years of combined experience that they've used to capture weddings and snap portraits of famous subjects, including former US President Bill Clinton and professional baseball players. They’ve traveled throughout North Africa and Europe, teaching students that photography is a viable alternative to chiselling marble statues during every Kodak moment.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The Bogey Golf Tour grants golfers a chance to take to the links and compete against fellow amateurs in tournaments scheduled at some of the finest courses in the London, Windsor, Detroit, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas. At each event, scratch golfers compete in the Birdie division, 0–15 handicaps square off in the Par division, and 16+ handicappers trade pinpoint approaches and sequined divot tools in the Bogey division. The top five finishers in each division receive prize money—which can be paid out in gift certificates or cash—and the Tour also holds prize competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and 3-iron jousting. The Tour publishes the results from each tournament in local newspapers, and players can chart the peaks and valleys of their careers on the Tour Members list, which compiles all of their tournament results. Along with providing an outlet for amateur golfers to exercise their long-suppressed competitive side, the Tour and its sponsors have raised $74,000 for various area charities since 2003.
Instinct Windsports gives humans the means to defy gravity and evolution. Everyone from beginners to experienced hang gliders can learn the ways of flight, with instructors making safety their top priority. Ground schools explore the gliders and their underlying principles before a scooter-mounted towing winch and a computerized simulator let beginners ease into flight. Although not included with this Groupon, more experienced students can work through certification courses that give them the techniques necessary to soar on their own.
For a safe, immersive introduction to the world of hang gliding, the center’s certified pilots also offer tandem flights. A high-powered winch or an ultra-light airplane tows the duo to as high as 1,500 feet before releasing the glider to the instructor’s control. During the next 10–30 minutes, adventurers gain a birds-eye view of the surrounding area and the possibility of controlling the glider so they can brag to their land-bound pets after landing.
Inside its multisport dome, Max's Golf Centre lets golfers and baseball players hone their craft throughout the year. Golfers can play digital versions of 30 world-renowned courses?including Pebble Beach and Spyglass?inside golf simulators, which make playing possible when the weather outside is rainy, snowy, or just too perfect to ruin with a triple bogey. They can crush golf balls toward a variety of suspended and floor-level targets with their irons and wedges on the indoor and outdoor driving ranges, which together account for 56 different hitting stations. Guests can also play a round of mini golf at either the 18-hole indoor circuit or the 36-hole outdoor putter's park, which winds around a central waterfall. Furthermore, the facility features six batting cages that resonate with the sounds of batters slapping sharp line drives, laying down bunts, and shouting threats at pitching machines that brush them back one too many times.
