Expect to get an earful of positive music, motivational speeches, and ethic-enforcing instruction during the practices. Fast-paced drills are organized to whip benchwarmers into big shots and big shots into humungous successes with a variety of game-speed stations (each is 3 to 7 minutes long).

The Fort Collins Club helps members feel comfortable in their own bodies by turning flabby flesh turtlenecks into slim, tailored skin suits. During the Club's daily group fitness, spinning, and yoga and Pilates mat classes, instructors guide guests on en masse exercise expeditions ranging from heart-pumping stepping exercises to muscle-toning asana sequences. Independent body-tenders can blaze their own calorie-strewn trails on the hardwood floors of hand, racquet, and basketball courts or the 35 feet of wall-crawling terrain on the indoor climbing wall. Family membership holders can also drop their tender progeny off in the Kids' Club so that they don’t gum up the finely tuned machinery with their oversized lollipops and welding torches.

During her 19-year career, Tonja Hadley—or “Coach T” as her students call her—has motivated athletes to victory at the NCAA’s Division I and Division II levels. Now leading boot-camp classes at The Edge Sports Center, the registered strength and conditioning coach applies her wealth of fitness expertise to students looking to get in shape. Her workouts combine the benefits of cardio and strength training into a single rigorous routine. Students rapidly move from exercises on body balls to floor routines and lifting weights, keeping pulses pounding and muscles guessing. Classes are sometimes held on The Edge Sports Center's 22,000 square foot indoor field so students can eschew drawn-out stints on the treadmill.

The internationally acclaimed Big Air event makes its inaugural American appearance in Denver with two evenings of competition that pair a roster of global champs with a tremendous 300-foot-long jump.

Afterward, ski fans can cheer on the winners at the awards ceremony (8:15 p.m.), before being treated to a concert by Grammy-nominated rockers Switchfoot.

When it comes to coaching, owners of Boom Sports Guy and Traci have all the credentials you'd expect. Tracy played 15 years of basketball at the competitive level, including Division 1 college ball, and Guy was all-state in soccer. But it's their academic backgrounds that give them the edge, especially since many of the players they coach are only 18 months old. The duo holds degrees in psychology and neuroscience, and Traci is a qualified early childhood development teacher. They draw on their dual passions to help little ones develop motor and social skills with sports-based games and stories.

For older kids ages 4?10, Traci and Guy focus on fundamentals of football, basketball, and soccer?a sport the rest of the world calls goal-ball. The focus in these classes is to build up not only athletic skill, but also the confidence needed to tryout for and play on a team. Throughout any given week of classes, the coaches work on five to six fun activities, each demanding an increasingly deft touch. This approach gets kids acclimated with such skills as ball control or shooting technique in a non-intimidating, non-competitive way.
