24/7 Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with state-of-the-art fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let anyone tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling. For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
The crack of a bat signals another powerful hit inside Extra Innings' spacious, 70-foot-long batting tunnels.

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.
The Cornhole.com story began in 2004 when a group of craftsmen began designing cornhole boards and bags in their small wood shop in Germantown, Ohio. Since then, the shop has blossomed into one of the nation's leading suppliers of cornhole products, shipping quality boards, bags, and accessories around the globe. The company’s designers fill duck-cloth bags with real corn kernels and the baby teeth of unicorns and cut boards from plywood in accordance with American Cornhole Association regulations. In addition to being used by prominent companies such as GEICO, Vitaminwater, and Livestrong, their sets have been seen in a variety of sports and entertainment media, including on the Rachael Ray Show and ESPN.
