James Rothery served as a military policeman for 10 years, serving two tours of duty in Iraq and training other military personnel in hand-to-hand combat. It was telling, then, that after investigating many styles of martial arts, he chose to stick with wu zu quan kung fu. The name of his chosen art translates as "Five Ancestor Fist," describing its history as a combination of styles. James breaks those styles into digestible chunks for his students, arming them slowly with more advanced skills or simply focusing on fitness and self-defense for those interested in purely practical applications.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 250 locations blanket 36 states and eight countries?Planet Beach Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. The range of services include total skincare, wellness, weight management, relaxation and renewal treatments. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.

It was 2007 when event planner Desmone Black bought her first dance pole. She realized that a pole's presence, like an elf in a bustier, could add just the right mix of sauciness and whimsy to a party. When she brought dance polls to her events, the women loved it. That got the cogs in Desmone's head turning. Pole dancing could make for a really fun workout. And that's how Sway Dance and Fitness was created. At the studio, Desmone teaches students the fundamentals of pole dancing in beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes.
