Incorporating lifting, basic gymnastics, and cardio, CrossFit Absolute bolsters bodies with a broad fitness formula, used in high-intensity locales such as police academies and military special-operations units. Small-group classes contain four to eight participants who boost group mind as they fortify bodies for fitness with squats, sit-ups, push-ups, and heart-pumping pinky crunches. CrossFit promises universal scalability, meaning that loads and intensities of classes may be adjusted to accommodate anyone from a bench-pressing neophyte to a champion heavyweight capable of crushing a brick with a sneeze. CrossFit schedules its svelte-sessions all day Monday–Saturday.

At first it seemed like the only people who would ever hear about Patrick Caldwell's pies were his friends and family. Using a recipe born in North Carolina and passed down from his mother, he'd craft his specialty white-sweet-potato pie for every family gathering. But it was his mother-in-law who gave him the final push to turn his pie-making hobby into a full-time endeavor. Using the family recipe as a blueprint, Patrick began to tweak the formula to make it perfect, aging his white sweet potatoes in a wine cellar for nine months to enhance their natural sweetness and cure them of their fear of the dark. Before long, Patrick's Famous Pies were in high demand at area farmer's markets, where he still sells them today alongside other specialties like sweet-potato bread and peach cobbler.

Occupational therapists Dr. Brian R. Foltz and Ross E. Sato founded Pediatric Motor Playground to help children aged 2.5–12 develop physical and academic skills needed to succeed in school. At centers in Lafayette and Danville, the therapists and their team of educational-fitness instructors guide kids through the company's patented Motor Curriculum: 50 straight minutes of activities specifically designed to develop skills such as hand-eye coordination and social interaction. During these sessions, instructors might have kids play basketball, climb on foam-padded gym equipment, exercise with fitness balls, and practice their handwriting.
Dr. Foltz and Mr. Sato aren't comfortable just letting any instructor or animated snowman teach their curriculum. Each educational-fitness instructor completes at least 240 supervised hours of training and must pass both written and physical evaluations.
