As one of the oldest cosmetology schools in the area, the Salon Schools Group has been churning out highly trained manicure mavens, visage revolutionaries, and overall bodily beautifiers for nearly eight decades. Drop by any location and let one of the up-and-coming cosmetologists stage a performance of their freshly honed skills under the supervision of an expert instructor before they matriculate to some of the finest salons in the area. Services, which vary by school location, include a cranberry bog facial from Westerville's spa menu, which cleanses and heals the skin with antioxidants and essential oils and, like any fruitful spelunking expedition, concludes with a shampoo and blow dry ($32.50). Heath's salon menu offers deluxe haircuts with a blow dry and curling-iron style ($9–$11) and cap highlights ($29–$30). Liberate upper lips and eyebrows from the tyranny of excess fuzz with a wax from Canal Winchester's spa offerings ($7 each), or sharpen your claws with the full set of sculptured nails offered on Karl Road's salon menu ($20). There are a slew of equally indulgent treatments at all seven locations. Go in for a marathon glam session before the office prom, or spread out services over multiple visits.

Q&A with the Fitness Training Profesonal

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Show them where they started from, show them their progress or how far they've come, and remind them the reasons they began.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?

Well, most people who come to our club, like to work out with no distractions. But what we do offer is nutrition consulting and suggestions. And [along] with our nutritional supplements we have...ready-to-go drinks and bars, soft goods, etc... Also, we're working on adding a reflexologist soon.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

Yes. we have been and always will be a "judgment-free zone."

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Just this: I've worked with all walks of life in fitness for over 30 years. I know this one thing to be true, for any human, high intense athlete or gardener, the body needs 1) supportive eating 2) cardio exercise and 3) resistance training for over-all heath and wellness.

If it has wheels and a motor, then chances are you can find it racing around Columbus Motor Speedway's 1/3-mile oval track. The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track roars to life every Saturday evening, when up to 5,000 men, women, and children flood the grandstands and enter a world of high-octane and checkered flags. Trips around the track may feature different vehicles?perhaps modern stock cars or nostalgic "legend cars" that hearken back to racing's earlier days. For some homegrown octane, the track also showcases Columbus Modifieds: aerodynamic machines with high-performance V-8 engines.

Columbus Motor Speedway also serves as a training ground for racing's future stars. Newer competitors cut their chops by racing in four-cylinder compact cars before moving on to the sport stock class and more high-powered motors. Non-competitors can even get in on the thrills during the Tuesday evening's Ride?N Drive experience, when they slip behind the wheel of a legend car.

Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
