Q&A with James Mundia, Director Of Training

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

One of my first jobs was a youth soccer coach for 4 to 6-year-olds at an indoor soccer facility. I fell in love with coaching and helping kids get better at the game. That continued when I took on older kids, eventually coaching at the high school and college level, where I am now. Soccer is a unique sport in that there are so many different qualities needed to be a successful player, and I am passionate about helping families unlock the codes to achieve that.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Kids should come ready to play with soccer gear on, their ball, shin guards, a spare T-shirt, and water or a sports drink. We'll be doing a lot of work, most of it with the ball, so they should be ready to run and work hard.

What?s your favorite part of your job?

I love meeting new families and helping them get the most out of their soccer experience. The kids are always amazing and I like challenging them to become better players and better people.

Each Capitol City Brewing Company location comes equipped with an in-house brewing system. It allows brewmaster Kristi Mathews Griner to monitor every step of her process and start serving her latest handcrafted batches within hours of completion. The system is a point of pride for Capitol City, whose Arlington eatery prominently displays its brewing technology for visitors.

Capitol City's set-up yields four signature beers year-round, including Amber Waves Ale, winner of the Great American Beer Festival's bronze, silver, and gold medals on three separate occasions. Inspired by English-, Belgian-, and German-style brews, Kristi also creates a rotating selection of seasonal beer such as golden ale made with real fruit, rather than the tempting fruit snacks she found in her lunchbox.

Beer not only fills up at least seven or eight Capitol City taps year-round, but also finds its way into the kitchen. Chefs marinate grilled breasts of organic chicken in Amber Waves Ale and flavor juicy bratwursts with Prohibition Porter. Though beer-free, other regional dishes—such as crab cake sandwiches served with house-made Old Bay tartar sauce—are specifically made to complement the bar's pours.

Owner and fitness contributor to WebMD the Magazine, Michael Lin promotes full-body conditioning through functional movements at CrossFit Rosslyn, an addendum to Verve Health & Fitness. Lin developed his passion for fitness while growing up as the descendent of a long line of doctors in Yilan, Taiwan. Now, as part of a staff of more than a dozen trainers, he designs exercise routines that take place in the facility's open weight room.

During CrossFit classes, visitors leap into high-intensity routines that challenge participants with intuitive maneuvers such as pushing, running, jumping, and throwing. Arms swing kettlebells to kindle muscular burns, while medicine balls bounce and dangling ropes tempt climbers to scale their way to the top. The constantly shifting workouts blend elements of gymnastics with calisthenics and Olympic weightlifting, crafting each maneuver so that patrons can adapt it to suit their strength level. Classes also invent friendly competitions, tracking time, points, and the number of grip errors in barbell-twirling performances.

Though some of Virginia Wine Tours’ staffers swear by Argentinean Malbecs and others favor New Zealand Rieslings, one thing’s certain: they’re all passionate about Northern Virginian wines. These aficionados conduct tours through a sweeping array of vineyards across the region, including the intimate Bluemont Vineyard in Loudon County, the sprawling Gray Ghost Vineyard in Rappahannock County, and the mountainside Naked Mountain Winery in Fauquier County. During these full- and half-day trips, they enlighten groups with local area viniculture facts and anecdotes, as well as encourage them to mix and mingle amongst their fellow wine enthusiasts. Virginia Wine Tours provides tour groups with transportation to and from wineries, sparing customers the inconvenience of having to worry about parking their cars or mastering the art of vehicle levitation.
