For Petra Cliffs owners Steve and Andrea Charest, purchasing the climbing and bouldering school wasn't just a good business opportunity, but a way to add value to the local climbing community. Avid climbers themselves, they helped the facility develop into a place where beginners feel comfortable grabbing their first grips, but also one where advanced climbers and boulderers still feel challenged. Within the 8,500-square-foot space, visitors can climb, take lessons, tackle a high-ropes course, or even work out on strength-training equipment. Of course, the staff puts safety and knowledge above all else, and they teach and keep up with professional development courses so they don't miss learning about new protocols or new rock formations that may have evolved in the last five years.
Krav maga is the official fighting style of the Israeli Army, but it seems like US Armed Forces members are enjoying it too. Marc Delnicki and Mark Messare, who served in the US Army and Air National Guard, respectively, draw on decades of martial-arts experience to teach Kelevra Krav Maga?s students how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. Using modern, practical fighting techniques, their krav maga classes impart self-defense skills while also providing an intense, full-body workout. Marc and Mark also lead kids' martial-arts classes, and KFX fitness classes that use scientific research and anatomy knowledge to design workouts.

The staff members at Rocksport Indoor Climbing & Outdoor Guiding Center regularly explore the Adirondacks and mountain ranges throughout the world, mentally cataloging the frost-kissed crags and adrenaline-soaked sheer expanses. When they are not leading adventurers on ice-climbing expeditions or scrambling through narrow caves, the climbers can be found on the 4,400 square feet of climbing space at their facility. There, they teach students to how to deal with complex stone surfaces in order to navigate actual cliffs or volunteer at the local gargoyle shelter. Rocksport owner Tom Rosecrans leads the crew, lending knowledge from three Himalayan expeditions and his self-published book Adirondack Rock and Ice Climbs.
