Function. That's what CrossFit is all about. And that's what got Shaun and Jenna Tieman so hooked on the method that they decided to open Hoosier CrossFit. During classes, CrossFit's system of constantly varied movements are performed at a high intensity. Because the movements are functional, they increase agility, speed, and power while readying participants for all manner of physical activity. Classes rely on tools such as gymnastics rings and bumper plates instead of machines, ensuring that the body is doing all the work. To initiate the uninitiated, instructors start all beginners out with On-Ramp classes, which familiarize exercisers with CrossFit basics.
Window Genie deploys trained professionals to scrub windows to a shine inside and out or upkeep home exteriors with a suite of services. To start window cleanings, techs wet glass and scrape away any paint flecks or other debris, then scrub and squeegee each pane clean. Before stepping back to admire their handiwork, they wipe edges and sills dry and check for any smudges or drips. Their no-streak guarantee empowers homeowners to call workers back if they're unhappy with the job or just want to watch them levitate to the second floor again.
In addition to cleaning, Window Genie can tint windows to protect furniture from fading or napping cats from sunburning. Their blinds and shutters stylishly block unwanted sunbeams, and homeowners can keep the Window Genie number on file for when they need gutter protectors, pressure washing, or tile-and-grout scrubdowns.
Chef Alexa Lemley’s gourmet marshmallows were never supposed to be sold. The thoughtful chef prepared these sweet, inventively flavored cubes as gifts for 240Sweet’s original catering clientele, but they quickly became a customer favorite.
Today, chef Lemley keeps up with demand by gathering quality local and organic ingredients to craft small batches of her inventively flavored gourmet marshmallows. She combines Michigan beet sugar, Ohio glucose, and Indiana cornstarch and whisks everything together into dense, fluffy cubes, which she then flavors with handmade vanilla extract.
She has developed a line of creative, standard flavors such as Hoosier strawberry, maple and brown sugar, and coffee chocolate chip. Additional flavors rotate in celebration of monthly events, including the Dirty Leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day and Love Stinks! for Valentine’s Day. Each individual treat is sold in thoughtful, minimalistic packaging: a clear plastic bag tied with a ribbon. 240Sweet also provides online recipes for other sweet treats, including popcorn balls and salty s’mores, and it runs marshmallow-making classes where patrons can combine their own unique flavor combinations or make a life-size marshmallow snowman.
