Owner Jesse Johnson understands public service better than most people. He enlisted in the Navy at 17 and has served as a police officer in three states, becoming one of the youngest chiefs of police in Montana. As a result, he's spent more than two decades serving his country, including time as a contracted agent for protection services and combat overseas, in addition to serving as an Emergency Response Team Element Commander and Quick Response Team Leader for two departments. He eventually used the encyclopedic knowledge of firearm tactics and safety he gained during his decades of service to open Umbrella Tactics. Whether it?s security training or basic firearm safety, he and his team of law enforcement and NRA-certified instructors prepare students for real-world situations.

Pikes Peak Athletics founders Anna and George Heidinger are a real power couple: he's worked for years as a strength conditioning and swim trainer, she as a swim club coach and former Olympic Trails qualifier. But their decades of aquatic achievement haven't made them narrowly focused swimmers whose skin starts shriveling on dry land. In small-group and private lessons, they view even the most advanced students not as swimmers but as "people who swim," and, consequently, take a relationship-first approach to instruction.

The Heidingers are aided by a squad of experienced junior and senior coaches, each certified in CPR, first aid, and water safety—and each extensively shadowed by a head instructor and a benevolent water spirit before being turned loose to instruct on their own. Beyond basic lessons and intensive coaching, staff also organize seasonal swim teams, and lead an annual swim camp that helps students hone the four major strokes and other aquatic competition skills using video playback.

After taking up the game as an adult, real-estate broker Shawn Jardine started Diva Golf to bring women of all ages and abilities together in a golf club that emphasizes fun and fellowship. The club lets members enjoy golf in a pressure-free, socially oriented atmosphere with its weekly Nine and Wine events, during which members test their swing in a nine-hole round before sipping a dulcet vintage, networking with fellow ladies of the links, and trading suspenseful golf-ball rescue stories at the clubhouse. Members also meet for group lessons, practice sessions, and community events such as wine tastings and charity gatherings. With optional events scheduled regularly at both public and private courses, Diva Golf provides members a path to new friends and improved golf skills without having to pose as Scottish socialites.

Skate City's rinks are havens for roller-skaters tired of rough asphalt and bumpy sidewalks. Within each, a smooth white plane stretches out in front of every pair of wheels, beckoning and tempting maximum speeds. And during open-skate sessions, these rinks become mini metropolises, stirring with skaters of all ages rolling to upbeat music. Each Skate City has its own lineup of special offerings, too: at some, Sunday nights mean free slices of pizza, whereas at others, Friday nights are reserved for teenagers tired of just sitting around, getting taller. When they aren't buzzing with public skating sessions, skating instruction, and hockey games, Skate City locations also transform into the ideal spots for birthday parties.
