It can be difficult to find a perfect wedding gown, a pair of jeans that strikes the right balance between style and comfort, or a clown suit with the same amount of polka dots as the letters in your last name.

With its prompt service and option for free pickup and delivery, Total Care Cleaners minimizes the pain of being without one’s favorite clothes. The professional cleaners can dry-clean or launder a wide variety of fabrics, including delicate leather and suede.

When Max Schneiderman began his family’s business, it was a grocery store first and foremost. Then Schneiderman’s began to carry a few furniture items and slowly these grew to overshadow the cans of soup and produce until the furnishings finally swallowed the foodstuffs whole.

Now, Schneiderman's Furniture has spread from the Iron Range to spots throughout the Twin Cities. The showrooms stock local and foreign furniture from more than 100 manufacturers. Many items in stock can be customized in color and texture to match a homeowner's current obsession with plastic flamingos.

To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape for Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then comes 25 minutes of cardio: the trainers might start novice exercisers with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for enhanced results.

The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To track ladies' progress toward reaching their goals, the trainers measure their weight and body-fat percentage every two weeks.

After his security team escaped unscathed from an attack during a refueling mission, AJ Reyer received an ARCOM medal with valor from the US Army. He served eight years, during which he flexed his teaching muscles by training 140 soldiers in convoy security. When AJ returned home in 2005, he became a law-enforcement officer, patrolling Minnesotan streets and eventually joining the department's SWAT team.

He channels these experiences into classes at Protection and Security Services. While his beginning students learn gun safety and shooting techniques, his advanced pupils participate in real-life SWAT training scenarios that incorporate room clearing, hands-on self-defense, and firing airsoft replica handguns while moving. When he's not teaching his students, AJ and his team dole out subpoenas, run private investigations, and supply security services for corporations, weddings, and large red buttons.

Drafts of cool air usually clue homeowners in to air leaks around windows or doors. But larger, more problematic air leaks may be hidden in attics, basements, ductwork, and crawlspaces, leaching the efficiency of heating and cooling systems. Elite Energy Efficiency's experienced, BPI-certified technicians find the leaks during home energy audits, which they conduct using diagnostic tools such as infrared cameras. Techs can then seal the leaks with caulk, spray foam, and weather stripping. These services reduce energy bills and may qualify clients for further rebates from energy companies.
