Armed with 21 years of training in various athletic disciplines and multiple certifications through organizations such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Jason Yun helps clients to mow down calories. With his assistant coaches Rick Locke, Bob Benden, and Bob Carleton, he bolsters the physical prowess and mental focus of students during multi-week boot camps. In addition to the camp, he teaches advanced classes such as Kettlebell Khaos or the blazingly fast-paced YunFit. In the latter, Yun shouts out a series of cardio and strength-training commands such as “pushup,” “squat,” or “go home and make a wheatgrass smoothie.”
Brian Ratcliff, who has been cleaning carpets and upholstery since 1985, leads Heartland Carpet & Upholstery Care’s charge against household dirt and bacteria. Though Brian's earned his technical prowess through years of training and takes pride in his work, it's his love of people that's kept him in the field. He approaches each job with a detail-oriented passion for transparency—before deep steam-cleaning a carpet or pulling stains from upholstered furniture, he inspects and appraises each material. He then communicates any concerns with the customer, shaping realistic expectations for their results and always confessing how many Canadian pennies he's found between the sofa cushions.
Heartland Carpet & Upholstery Care eliminates evidence of spills and heavy foot traffic with a three-step process that begins with a fabric pre-treatment and spot treatment. They then scrubs deep fibers with an electric rotary brush and unearths buried contaminants with a hot-water extraction system.
Their expertise extends beyond regular fabrics—they spot clean delicate materials such as silk and leather, and they know the methods for washing antique and oriental rugs. They also extract damaging water resulting from a flood or pet cloud that has yet to be house trained.

For more than a quarter century, the fashion accessories, stationery, and jewelry at Franny's Gift Gallery have brightened birthdays, holidays, and weddings with notes and keepsakes from brands such as Hallmark, Vera Bradley, and Precious Moments. Colorful beads of Italian Murano glass and amber glisten upon silver chains and earrings, and Dickens' Village figurines and landscapes miniaturize the quaint, old-fashioned Christmas cheer and rapidly shifting class conflicts of Victorian England.
A lifelong animal lover, Cherie Luckoff's interest in photography grew after she began chronicling the antics of her own dogs, a hobby she continues to this day. Her penchant for capturing pets in pastel led to an interest in boudoir photography—a genre she mastered during years spent training under Claudio Basso and Playboy veteran Ken Marcus. Working in concert with Cherie is staff makeup artist Jennie Sullivan, who imbues subjects with confidence by highlighting their best features. Cherie goes out of her way to set her models at ease, striking some poses herself to show how to execute a natural-looking position. A background in both art education and interior design guides her as she sets up a shoot, enhancing her portraits’ distinctive sensual auras via props such as petals, pearls, and feather boas. This attention to detail has led Cherie to develop a devoted fan base of clients who gallop into her studio from across the state as well as from Michigan and New York.
