Though Israeli Tactical School's modern indoor range facility for professionals often welcomes police officers, the instructors here are particularly skilled at working with the general public. Owner and instructor Tomer saw combat as a former Israeli special forces member, and also served in the Shin-Biet (Israeli Secret Service) in embassies around the world. At Israeli Tactical School's tactical training classes, students are provided with the most up-to-date training for skill levels from beginners to law enforcement special units, combining elements of hand-to-hand combat and shooting scenarios, including firing while on the move. To enhance their students' training, the instructors set up several attack scenarios during each class.

"You are smart. You are nice. You are pretty. You are uniquely you." This is the mantra at Viva La Girls Spa & Club, where beauticians aim to increase kids' confidence and expand their brains, too. They can perform an array of treatments at their perch within Glam Spa Lounge or travel to a location of the client?s choice to doll up youngsters with nail art, facials, and glitter makeup. Spa soirees make kids feel like movie stars, princesses, or CIA agents disguised as princesses with beauty services packaged with add-ons such as a pink limo service, candy buffets, yoga lessons, and lip-gloss-making stations. Lessons in etiquette and cooking are also available, and the Viva La Girls club keeps youngsters engaged with books, field trips, and community service.

Colleen Seely, a horse trainer and judge for local equestrian shows, channels her love for the gentle creatures into Fox Pointe Farm, L.L.C., which she opened in 2005. The 27-acre expanse houses two arenas—one lighted with professional footing and the other sandier than a hermit crab's beach house—as well as two barns' worth of stables, grassy pastures, trails, and a swimming pool. Within the tranquil setting, Colleen and her staff train and board steeds for showing at local venues or the farm's own school. Focus shifts from horses to riders during lessons for all ages and abilities, in addition to summer camps for avid athletes. Some overnight camps span an entire week, during which 10 girls bunk in the air-conditioned Fox Den cabin after a day of riding.

In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers 4 months old–12 years old with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.

Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents magazine.
