Bicycle One's staff maintains bicycles, preserving their roadworthiness with expert tune-ups, and stocks the shop's shelves with a cornucopia of cycling gear. Cycling sages adjust brakes and gears before truing wheels to prevent bicycles from veering off-trail into sasquatch dens. The service concludes as adept hands lubricate the velocipede's cables and drivetrain and tighten all other bike-bound components.
Craig and Laura Decker seem to have a difficult time making up their minds. They also seem to have a knack for turning this indecisiveness into an advantage at every turn. When it came to opening their new business, for example, they briefly wondered whether it should feature a wine shop, a wine bar, or a gourmet bistro. Their solution? All three.
This spirit of inclusivity pervades The Wine Guy Bistro, where the Deckers pair seasonal wine varietals with globally inspired cuisine. Rather than choose between European elegance and New-American pizzazz, they settled on a compromise they describe as “Old World chic.” This label suits a menu that features small plates of housemade meatballs and bruschetta alongside assorted cheeses from around the world. The focus on small plates is in keeping with the Deckers’ have-it-all mentality and gives diners the option to sample several dishes without having to barter with adjacent tables.

Buckeye Kettlebells’ owner and chief trainer, Dave Clancy, believes that training is about pushing his clients past their perceived physical limits, showing them what they're truly capable of. He shares that spirit with a crew of 10 Russian Kettlebell Challenge certified trainers, one of the largest such teams in the country. They lead their charges in a host of kettlebell classes, in which they heave the spherical burdens toward total-body fitness in addition to facing off against their body weight in exercises including pull-ups, push-ups, and squats. Clancy is also a certified strength and conditioning specialist, who uses that knowledge to motivate clients to build muscle, flexibility, and range of motion.
In another sense, however, Clancy teaches the power of believing in yourself. He inspires patrons to tap into hidden stores of self-confidence to overcome physical and accompanying mental challenges—a skill that is useful in all of life's arenas, especially the local coliseum.
For Kingdom of Bounce owners and lifelong bounce enthusiasts Sara and Jason O., the best part about coming to work is seeing the faces of each awestruck child the moment they first catch sight of the giant floor-to-ceiling inflatables. Bounceable obstacle courses, slides, and castles reign supreme inside their air-conditioned facility, where youngsters are encouraged to run, jump, and ricochet off the walls. Carefully supervised by Sara and Jason's capable staff, sock-clad wee ones defy gravity during all-access open-bounce sessions, parties for up to 25 guests, and Pizza-and-a-Bounce events that fuel leaps with slices of pizza while parents and errant inflatable knights stay equally entertained via complimentary WiFi.
