Inspired by the bright, rich colors of 18th-century French and Swedish design, longtime Greenville resident Jennie Leigh Gainey revitalizes tired old home decor or furniture pieces with a distinct aesthetic that Town magazine calls "Alice in Wonderland meets Ethan Allen." Gainey's refurbished furniture pieces evoke simultaneous airs of refined gentility and informal hominess, like an ivy-covered country manor or an English baron in sweatpants. Having traded in the makeup brushes she once used to makeover the likes of Matthew McConaughey for more conventional art supplies, Gainey uses coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to impart an antique finish to nearly any surface. Eager DIY-ers can gather to glean her technique during relaxed BYOB painting parties.

Certified professional photographer Gene Taylor has fine-tuned his artistic vision while working in photojournalism and portrait photography for more than 30 years. During classes at Your Photo Safari, Gene introduces students to the photographic arts and the workings of DSLR cameras. Sessions begin in classroom settings, allowing students to get acquainted with camera basics as well as advanced features such as setting white balance and reducing blur. After learning how to navigate the multiple settings and buttons on their digital cameras, students traipse to area gardens to explore the natural world through their lenses. The hands-on experience allows students to take home artfully composed shots of plants bathed in natural light or trees planking over riverbanks in a bid for Internet fame.

Since 1994, Brit's Brothers Gym has behaved more like a personal-training facility than your standard health club. Though the facility features a slew of exercise equipment and the word "gym" on its sign, owner Olly Pierce and his team of trainers also offer the personal touch of boot camps, nutrition counseling, and, of course, personal training. Additionally, to reach the most exercisers without sacrificing one-on-one time, the team organizes small-group trainings that help build strength and muscle tone while encouraging camaraderie.

Anytime Fitness is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and every day of the year with nonstop security. The open schedule ensures you have no excuses not to get in shape—unlike its competitor, Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska, location during solar eclipses. A 30-day all-access membership (a $69 value) gives bodies access to enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them capable of running a marathon inside a swimming pool filled with mud.
