Norwood Custom Glass's owner and experienced glass molder Stan Sabick instructs budding crafters in a bevy of glass-forming techniques, operating a gallery to show off his own translucent creations. A two-hour hot-glass fused-pendant workshop includes all the frits, stringers, dichroic scraps, and pronunciation guides for the aforementioned materials to forge thoroughly fashionable trinkets. After a quick trip to the kiln, newly minted pendants cheerfully accompany their creators home, where they can adorn swanlike necks and chic rearview mirrors. Classes include both day and night sessions for busy professionals and artistically inclined vampires.
Since its founding in 1980, Sun & Ski Sports has remained true to its philosophy: “do a few things, but do them better than anybody else.” The shop stocks equipment in five categories of extreme and outdoor activities, including camping, skating, running, bicycling, and water and snow sports. It specializes in these to ensure its merchandise maintains a high standard of quality, and its employees are knowledgeable participants in the sports their department represents.
Bikers can drop off their steeds for tune-ups from certified mechanics who put all brands through the rigors of a 12-point inspection, checking chains and adjusting wobbly pedals and malfunctioning spoke-card motors. While waiting, curious eyes might linger on a North Face two-person tent, a Blackburn Airtower bicycle pump, or a vast selection of shoes from brands such as New Balance and Asics. Men and women can traipse nearly barefoot in the park with Vibram FiveFingers, which offer minimal structural encumbrances for a more natural stride, or cast their feet aside for the new-wheeled prowess that comes with a Fuji SL-1 LE Ultegra performance road bike.
In the heart of Cincinnati’s business district, work ends and play begins. Here, at The Yoga Bar, bodies and minds bask in a vibe that’s both festive and calming, like a piñata brimming with ocean waves. Helmed by Rachel Roberts—an instructor who has trained in India, Bali, and Europe—this studio explores international yoga traditions such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Yin. Teeming with bends, balances, and other physical challenges, classes fill students with energy rather than draining it away. Healthful beverages such as kombucha and coconut water flow from a mahogany bar, hydrating drinkers as they take on ancient yoga poses and modern, Pilates-inspired movements. On Friday nights, classes blossom into yoga socials where live music, tarot-card readings, and fashion trunk shows punctuate deep-breathing exercises. In addition to shepherding students toward metaphysical wellness during group and private sessions, Rachel leads yoga retreats in exotic settings such as Bali’s beaches and the moon’s bowling alleys. Between classes and retreats, Rachel makes mantra-inspired jewelry and serves as a community ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.
When Jason Reser isn't pouring his energy into competitive mountain-bike racing and trail improvement, he's tending to his business—Reser Bicycle Outfitters, which was named one of America's best bike shops for 2013 by the National Bicycle Dealer Association. At two stores, one of which earned a Best Bike Shop recognition from Northern Kentucky Magazine in 2012, he leads a team of competitive cyclists, technicians, and fitting specialists certified by the Serotta International Cycling Institute. At the Over-the-Rhine location, staffers match customers to city-friendly bikes and accessories; at the Newport, Kentucky store, they instead oversee a stock specializing in sports-focused bikes. Their inventory encompasses brands such as BMC, Civia, Orbea, and Ridley. The technicians service all makes and models in onsite repair shops, treating bicycles with everything from basic tune-ups to major overhauls to unproductive psychotherapy sessions. They also measure customers and frames at more than 30 points and swap out parts to complete custom fittings.
World Peace Yoga thrives on a sense of community. Through the movements performed in each class, instructors aim to create a feeling of connection. They believe that yoga allows its practitioners to tap into reservoirs of love and empathy and that by healing oneself, each individual is closer to healing the world. This philosophy seeps into every aspect of the studio. It starts in the studio’s roots—a diverse band of instructors who infuse their certified teaching methods with rich, varied personal experiences—and branches out to each student with sundry class offerings such as spirit-energizing Laughter Yoga and body-toning Pilates mat classes.
World Peace Yoga is a part of World Peace Earth, a foundation dedicated to creating change both on a global scale and within individual habits and mindsets. The foundation aims to foster a more peaceful world through small actions such as sustainable eating habits and larger gestures such as creating a sanctuary for exploited horses.
Mechanized towers stand along the shoreline of Wake Nation Cincinnati's 10-acre lake, steering riders across the water as they grip cables rather than lines attached to boats. Cruising clockwise from the cables, up to seven people at a time can wakeboard, water ski, kneeboard, or waterskate around the aquatic arena at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. Wake Nation designed the main lake for everyone from beginners to elite-level riders, and peppered it with manmade obstacles and floating jumps, allowing boarders to zip along and pull off tricks that sometimes aren’t possible behind a boat. They also have a smaller practice lake for beginners and young riders from 5 years old and up.
Experienced staff members observe boarders at all times, supplying safety tips, training, and navigational advice for circumventing Poseidon’s rose bushes. Visitors can bring their own equipment, or rent or buy necessary gear from Wake Nation’s pro shop. A cast of instructors lead lessons and observe riders during freestyle riding, fun summer camps, and special events such as birthday parties.
At Neusole Glassworks, gurus of all stripes and skill levels come together to fuse, blow, and mold glass both for independent projects and classes that explore the art form. The nonprofit facility sets the stage for inspired creation with flame-working, hotshop, and fusing studios that help the crew and their pupils transform raw materials into polished paperweights, unique pendants, and colorful new windshields. Upstairs, Neusole Glassworks invites browsers to tote pieces home from the gift shop or let their eyes feast on the myriad colors and textures at Atmosphere @ Neusole—a gallery for emerging artists and the facility’s students. In addition to welcoming anyone into its facility, Neusole Glassworks dispatches a mobile glassblowing studio to enliven street fairs and churn out slippers for palace dance parties.
Since 1989, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has saved more than 1.5 billion pounds of possessions from nearby landfills, earning mentions on Dr. Phil and a starring role on A&E's Hoarders.
After booking appointments, clients receive a two-hour window during which the crew will arrive, as well as a warning phone call 15–30 minutes before its actual appearance. Once onsite, the team quickly clears away 19 types of undesirable items from cluttered homes, businesses, and construction sites, loading them into their truck before thoroughly cleaning the vacated area to make way for life-size statues of Felix Unger, the patron saint of cleanliness. Once loaded, the bric-a-brac makes its way to recycling centers, donation drops, and safe disposal sites, preventing usable furniture, computer monitors, and worn-out banana suits from languishing in landfills.

Designs by Paolo started out manufacturing specialty cases for medical professionals, but the vintage-looking doctor bags soon caught the attention of fashion-conscious consumers seeking distinctive accessories. Since then, the handbags, folios, and travel cases have graced the forearms of celebrities including socialite Paris Hilton, chef Emeril Lagasse, and guitarist Carlos Santana. Each trendy bag is handcrafted in a Cincinnati factory from high-end fabrics and leathers before gracing Designs by Paolo's unique showroom, where colorful carry-alls line shelves as far as the eyes or sentient binoculars can see.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
Fibergé's kaleidoscopic array of yarns from brand names such as Blue Sky Alpaca, Spud & Chloe, and Rowan beckons knitters far and wide into the boutique, where they'll also find the needles and accouterments needed to pursue creative knitting endeavors of all kinds. The shop's expert artisans host a schedule of intimately sized classes, during which they expose beginners to basic knitting fundamentals and challenge preacquainted yarn binders with slightly more complicated projects, such as knitting baby hats and lobster mittens. For more advanced classes, stitchers use their favorite skeins and their own trusty needles to craft one of more than 200 patterns.
Lauded by the Wall Street Journal for their handcrafted suits, Romualdo's team of old-world tailors sews impeccable garments from high-quality fabrics, complemented by a selection of ready-made clothes and accessories. Like tuxedo-clad koala babies, ties hug necks snugly and formally ($68–$135) and come in a variety of styles to coordinate with any suit. After taking careful measurements, tailors fashion custom suits from bolts of fabrics available in myriad colors and patterns. Suits from the Bronze Collection service the needs of most classy party goers with worsted wool, while the Platinum ensemble combines finely-spun high-grade wools from around the world with superior attention to detail to create an elegant suit fit for dignitaries or the bodies attached to the heads of state. Under the influence of nimble needle-wielding fingers, sets of measurements and folds of fabric are transformed into elegant ready-to-wear outfits over the course of four to six weeks.
