PADI instructor Bob Henry dove in the Caribbean, South America, and other tropical locales, but he always returned to his home base?B & W Dive Co., a scuba shop he founded in 1991. Since the ?90s, his children Amber and Warren have taken the reins, carrying on their dad?s legacy by organizing dive trips and helping students earn their PADI certifications. The shop?s classes cover topics beyond open-water diving, though; they can introduce pupils to scuba basics, such as breathing underwater without trading in their ability to breathe on land, or focus on snorkeling and swimming. Visitors can also outfit themselves for solo underwater journeys with dependable aquatic gear, culled from makers such as Oceanic, Tusa, and Sealife.

The Range

For live-fire tests, San Jac CHL's instructors use the range at Pasadena Gun Center.

The Rentals

Instructors rent semi-automatic handguns to students who do not have their own firearms. They also supply safety gear; students can purchase ammo at the range.

At a Glance

San Jac CHL's owner Wes Geddes knows how to safely handle firearms. His career as a deputy constable for Harris County depends on it. When not on duty with the police department, Wes teaches classes that qualify students to apply for concealed-handgun permits. These sessions start in the classroom, where lectures touch on topics such as weapon safety. A live-fire test follows, before students return to the classroom for lessons on gun laws and assistance in completing the required application, with Wes available for help with followup questions.

Chris Green's passion for basketball has led him from the courts of his high school to the major arenas where he played with the ABA West All-Star Team. Though he was bestowed with many awards and accomplishments throughout his career, Green realized that his life's calling was not with basketball, but with helping people improve their lives through fitness. Eager to use his athletic talents to make a difference, he graduated with a degree in kinesiology and became certified in personal training through the International Sports and Science Association.

Today, Green combines the athletic prowess he cultivated on the basketball court with a positive, yet intense style of training during six-week boot camp programs, personal training sessions, and motivational coaching sessions. Dedicated to propelling students towards their fitness goals?whether those goals include losing weight, toning muscle, or squeezing into child-sized giraffe costumes?he supplements training sessions with regular motivational videos. Green also conducts regular self-improvement seminars on nutrition and body image.

Named Best Honey in 2008 by the Dallas Observer, Round Rock Honey's 100% natural local wildflower honey is harvested from more than 90 sites by owners Konrad and Elizabeth Bouffard and their crews of trained beekeepers. With precision, they remove the liquid gold from hives by centrifuge, ensuring that pollen, trace minerals, and complex sugars are never compromised during the honey harvest. They then pour the honey through a stainless-steel sieve to remove potential bee legs and wings, wax caps, and miniature tiaras before bottling it and selling it to specialty stores, farmer's market visitors, and online customers.

A similar procedure happens in other parts of the country at Round Rock's beekeeping schools. During classes, Konrad Bouffard and Beekeeping Academy teachers impart their beekeeping knowledge upon suited-up students while they extract honey from a live beehive. Along the way, novices learn about the finer points of raising bees and keeping them healthy, as well as bee handling and lullaby-buzzing.

For more than 40 years, Gonzales School of Languages has unraveled an array of tongues with group and private language lessons for all ages, taught by native speakers. The staff of instructors gets novice linguists started on their paths to becoming master polyglots during interactive classes, sharing their own anecdotes and experiences while instilling knowledge of the target language's culture. Small-group classes allow for a variety of basic communications among students and their instructors, and the one-on-one nature of private courses provides a tailored experience for advanced students who are tired of practicing by shouting into caves.
