From a season as a professional ballplayer in Marina di Ravenna, Italy, to a position as spring-training consultant for the New York Yankees, Coach Frank Dolan has seen, trained in, and taught conditioning techniques around the globe. As his professional baseball days metamorphosed into a career in sports performance, he decided that students—kids and adults—needed access to the same techniques that professional athletes were using to hone their bodies. So, with the aid of his father, Coach Dolan opened All 4 Sports and Fitness to reach a broader audience. Now, students of all stripes come to the 3,000-square-foot Sports and Fitness Performance center to get in shape or learn the sport they love, selecting the program that best suits their needs from the multitudinous course offerings. Apart from training in football, lacrosse, and snowboarding, the Coach also teaches high-performance fitness boot camps, readily squeezed into the busy schedules of adults or used to help teenagers clarify their contentious relationship with footwear.

Climbing in the Himalayas is less than an optimal time to have a medical emergency. But in 2000, Angela Strynkowski suffered a life-threatening seizure while 17,000 feet above sea level. Surviving this ordeal gave her a newfound purpose in life, eventually inspiring her to open A Jewel in the Lotus in the hope of bringing others onto their own paths of self-discovery.

At A Jewel in the Lotus, whose name comes from a mantra she picked up during that Himalayan trip, Strynkowski carries out her mission by teaching such styles as Vinyasa and classical yoga. She also leads holistically minded events and workshops and trains aspiring yoga teachers. She even has led groups out of town to seek inner peace during yoga-focused retreats.
