My Gym children's fitness center, which currently has more than 300 international locations, began more than 31 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp around. This dedication to imparting the benefits and fun of fitness still earns acclaim today; in 2014 alone, My Gym was named the best children's fitness center by Entrepreneur magazine.

My Gym's popularity stems from its signature program, which helps children from 6 weeks through 13 years of age develop their physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being. This development unfolds in the centers' fun classes, which teach kids fundamental skills through music, dance, games, sports, and more. In addition to boosting physical attributes such as balance, coordination, and strength, these fun classes also teach kids important social abilities, as well as boosting their self-esteem. Classes are run by the warm, energetic crew of teachers and supervisors at the Jacksonville branch. Team members also understand the value of the hands-off approach; the center offers practice & play sessions dedicated to unstructured (but parent-supervised) play time.

My Jax Golf operates on the philosophy that there are many ways to swing a club. Each lesson and teaching approach strive to help students develop a consistent, dependable swing true to their form and athletic abilities. The junior academy focuses on educating students in the fundamentals of golf while developing skills in a safe and fun environment. Not to be confused with Purchasing Golf Accessories, adult lessons adhere to the PGA process of acquiring a perfect swing—correct Posture, club Gripping, and body Alignment—while emphasizing the putting, chipping, and wedging maneuvers of the short game.

The learning center also offers specialized lessons with TPI-certified professional Tom Long, who employs the use of video analysis while conducting swing-sequencing lessons. This technology displays an unwavering digital perspective on the student’s swing while churning up a custom report that analyzes fitness levels, posture, and movement. An accompanying fitness regimen sculpts mortal physiques into golf-ball-swatting machines and golf-cart-racing iron men.:m]]

Located on Jacksonville’s south side, The Comedy Zone has been hosting some of the nation’s finest standup comedians for decades. Tucked away inside the Ramada Conference Center and Hotel, the Comedy Zone is a quaint, dim, charming nightclub venue filled with cozy tables and chairs. The thick carpet underfoot cushions the space further and keeps noisy shoes and squeaky chairs to a minimum. The small, gleaming wood stage is back-dropped by a large brick wall, reminiscent of so many other famous comedy clubs. Over the years, the stage has played host to a variety of national touring comedians and lots of local Florida talent. A full bar and a variety of burgers, sandwiches and appetizers are available to order, and can count toward the room’s industry-standard one drink or item minimum. Of course, that means comedy fans must be at least 21 years of age to enter the Zone.

The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.

The wind picks up over the St. Johns River, catching the sails of Cap'n Don Stokes's fleet of boats and propelling the vessels along the coastline, where sailing instructors point out ospreys perched in the trees as the sea stretches into the distance.

This natural revelry is thanks to The Sailboat Club, whose crew frees members from the responsibilities of boat ownership—such as maintenance, insurance, and renting slips—and grants unlimited sailing on a fleet of sailboats. Additionally, as an accredited training facility of the American Sailing Association, the club encompasses a team of instructors who teach lessons for all levels of sailors, ranging from those who just noticed wind to experienced sailors seeking a captain's license.
