Best of the West: Critics’ Pick Health and Beauty


Best gym to work  up a sweat and then feel swanky: Lakeshore

We once compared Lakeshore to Globogym in Dodgeball. But that’s before we had a facial at this one-stop-health spot. Broomfield’s Lakeshore manages to be both a gym for serious athletes and a beautiful, relaxing spa
for everyone.

Best way to bond with other ultra-competitive amateur athletes: Boulder Sport and Social Club

You totally ruled at intermurals in college, but what do you do now that you’re 30? Hit up the Boulder Sport and Social Club, which brings together like-minded athletes over sports
and socializing.

Trail with the most potential: Coal Creek

When all is said and done, the Coal Creek Trail will take walkers, runners and cyclists from Erie all the way to Superior. It’s a beautiful, winding, peaceful path with tons of potential—but for some residents, it’s just the trail to nowhere.

Best bike shop outside the bubble: Derby Bicycle Center

Derby is an amazing bike store, and it’s got style. From cruisers to Giants, Derby has a huge selection and a super patient, informed and
honest staff.

Best place to cuddle up in the lap of luxury: St. Julien Hotel

You don’t need to stay at the St. Julien to feel luxurious. While its spa is on the pricey end, it’s a fabulous way to indulge…or just grab a glass of wine at Jill’s and pretend you’ve spent all day at the spa.
