With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Seminole Bowl welcomes bowlers to compete on 24 polished lanes laid out beneath cosmic lights and a thumping sound system. The alley's grill revives weary bowling muscles with nachos and ice-cold soda, and a full-service bar invites bowlers to linger longer as they reminisce about the game and compose odes to the Cincinnati split. A large game room inspires kids to compete in pursuit of redemption tickets rather than the heart of the quiz bowl cheerleader.

Snuggled among 35 acres of wild flowers, old-growth trees, and verdant greenery, Country Oaks Golf Course delights divot diggers with a slew of scenic yet challenging holes. The course, full of narrow fairways and strategically located greens, rewards golfers' accurate drives and skillful approach shots with the ability to speak French. Errant whacks may land in Country Oaks' treacherous water obstacles, tree stands, and sand traps, while the undulating terrain demands subtle reads as players prepare their shots. Golf carts are included, allowing players to save their energy for more important tasks, such as retrieving errant shots, showing off on the driving range, or forging unused clubs into a mega club at the course's 3,500-square-foot clubhouse.

Rose Bowl welcomes visitors of all ages to pulverize pins among cosmic lighting, a melodious sound system, and 20 synthetic lanes. After double-knotting the included shoes and matching a neon-toned ball to their dog's eye color, bowlers can step up to a lane to watch their pin-count rack up on the automated scoring system. A fully stocked snack bar equips each duo with a frosty soda and cheesy order of nachos to munch in between turns. After a doubleheader of games, bowlers can keep fidgety fingers occupied with games at the arcade, by shooting a game of pool, or by challenging strangers to thumb wars.

GroupFit Studio’s owner Sherman Rosier is an NSCA-certified personal trainer, NSTA-certified running coach, certified nutrition specialist, and holds a first-degree black belt in tae kwon do. But no matter how advanced the accreditation he receives, he does not lose sight of the most basic tenant of exercise: whatever workouts you choose, have fun doing them. He tailors his classes to meet this requirement: his GroupFit90 classes work the entire body with lively tandem exercises aided by Bosu balls and resistance bands, and his DanceTance workouts fuel dance-based workouts with energetic funk, Latin, and hip-hop music. Exercisers who need an extra shot of oomph can also meet for a nutritional-coaching session, which provides a clearer insight into workout-friendly munching than spying on Sylvester Stallone while he shops for groceries.

Golfers drive, chip, and putt their way across Hilaman Golf Course, a 30-year-old, par 72 layout that spans 6,333 yards of player-friendly terrain. On most holes, players look out onto wide, unobstructed fairways that invite them to swing freely with their driver or steer their golf cart blindfolded. Water comes into play on multiple holes—a small pond sits directly in front of the fourth green, and holes 11–16 strategically wrap around two large water hazards to make the back nine slightly more challenging. The course complements its 18 holes with a restaurant that serves up sandwiches and salads, a driving range for golfers to hone their game, and four tennis courts where players can learn how to hit short irons off of asphalt.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,33 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 70.7 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 123 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options
