Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.

The minds behind Doms Fitness want to get one thing straight: this is not a gym. Rather, the expansive indoor facility is home to a group-fitness and personal-training studio. Here, instructors lead pupils through non-intimidating sessions, where a small class size allows them to focus on form and technique. Weight benches, plyo machines and boxes, jump ropes, tires, kettlebells, and stability balls fuel the workouts, designed to cater to each client's individual needs and goals. On occasion, weight-loss and health challenges take clients outdoors where they take in the fresh air and push their bodies to new limits. And once the workout is over, the talented trainers turn their sights toward nutrition, counseling on dietary choices and introducing students to the principles of intuitive eating.
Charwood Country Club's three nine-hole courses wind through acres of thick forest, their manicured greens sticking out from the trees like polished emerald jewels. On any 18-hole combination, golfers will find plenty of challenges as they contend with sharp curves, sand traps, and roving gangs of golf carts. Speaking of carts, groups can claim one before heading out to save time and stamina on the course. Some of that extra time can be spent on a post-game detour to LC's Grille for breakfast or lunch.
