At CrossFit Domo, certified CrossFit coaches guide athletes on their fitness journeys according to CrossFit’s principles of varied, functional fitness. Coaches design a new Workout of the Day (WOD) each day, which might blend fitness disciplines such as cardiovascular training, weightlifting, plyometrics, and gymnastics into an intense and calorie-burning workout. WODs are continually evolving, but it’s not uncommon to see CrossFit Domo students practicing some combination of lifting weights, running, rowing, performing bodyweight exercises, or working out with unconventional equipment such as tires and sledgehammers.
With very few trees on the course, golfers' views of the Rocky Mountains—which soar across the western horizon—are seldom obstructed at Saddleback Golf Club. The open terrain also makes the lengthy, 7,090-yard layout more manageable, as golfers can consistently reach for their driver off the tee. Even with an open expanse, golfers are constantly challenged, as most of the course's greens are heavily fortified with sand and grass bunkers, and two holes—the par-three 4th and the par-four 16th—feature de facto island greens, almost fully wreathed by water hazards. Simply reaching the putting surface does not guarantee a good score, as the course's large, multi-tiered greens will make for many long, hard-to-read putts. To prepare for the round, golfers can take a flyover tour of the course.
Though the course is a serious challenge, Saddleback Golf Club encourages golfers of all stripes to enjoy their time on the links. While the scorecards at most clubs include a recitation of basic rules and etiquette, Saddleback's card strikes a much more laid back tone, imploring players to "have phun" and "kick your ball if you hit a bad shot," while reminding them that "scoring is optional." The carefree vibe extends to the Club's instructional programs, where golf pros pass on birdie-hunting wisdom and caddie scolding tactics.

Elevate Fit Club is more than a fitness center—it’s a welcoming, supportive place to work out that was founded by two fitness-instructor sisters, who offer classic and alternative exercise options. The club has Pilates, Pilates Reformer, and yoga classes, and it also boasts a FitWall, a vertical-training exercise apparatus that engages all 603 muscles of the body just to stay on.
After 700 hours of training, the instructors of Bikram's Yoga College at Westminster and Longmont each received their certification from Bikram Yoga's founder, Bikram Choudhury. The team's collective expertise ensures students can safely execute Bikram's 26 circulation-boosting poses and two breathing exercises. During group or private classes, they'll help each student to transition from one stance to another as the studio's heating system incites greater flexibility and a detoxifying sweat. They cultivate a judgment-free atmosphere, welcoming participation from those with no prior yoga or volcano-spelunking experience.
The two Colorado studios host their sessions beneath 10- and 11.5-foot ceilings to foster a spaciously steamy setting. An onsite retail store equips patrons with gear, and a board-certified massage therapist ousts any lingering limb tension with a massage.
Nutrition Script's certified holistic nutrition therapist helps clients tackle their dietary goals with a variety of services that range from brief consultations to grocery store tours. No matter what treatment is employed, it's always customized to fit the individual. For instance, the 12-session "Personal Food Journey," which aims to teach clients about good nutrition, can involve food journals, meal plans, and in-depth discussions, whatever works best for the individual. Nutrition Script’s therapist can even restock pantries in order to remove items standing between clients and good health, such as a giant marshmallow man perched atop a bag of apples.
