Doug Schwaberow was sick of the personal-training industry—the repetitive exercise programs, the competition between trainers, and the outdated, even dangerous techniques he saw some trainers using. So he decided to open Achieve Fitness as a better alternative for fitness and sports conditioning. He took a hands-on approach to designing each program, from two types of boot-camp classes to semiprivate fitness sessions. He and his team also lead Sports Performance training for kids from third grade to high school, helping them become stronger, more agile, and less prone to injuries.

The friendly staff and doctor at Central Ohio Dental Spa know that the most important aspects of a dental office include the patient's comfort and peace of mind, along with experience and top-notch technology. Dr. Nguyen meets and exceeds the requisite experience, with a DDS earned from The Ohio State University in 2000, countless hours of postdoctoral training, and membership in the American Dental Association. His office is stacked with the latest technology, from digital x-ray machines and 360-degree panorex imaging to electric hand pieces and robotic tooth fairies. Adding an extra layer of comfort to each visit, a full-time massage therapist performs complimentary hand massages during treatments and can be booked for a complete session to take place before or after dental procedures in a private therapy room. Neck pillows also keep patients cozy in the dentist's chair, and additional spa services such as herbal neck wraps can be purchased or bartered for with gold toothpicks.

Ranked 56th on Golf Magazine's 2010 Top 100 Courses You Can Play, Longaberger Golf Club's immaculate, Arthur Hills–designed course stretches across 7,243 yards of rolling hills and parkland-style terrain. Begin a day of orb-blasting bravado with a stint at the club's 25-acre natural grass driving range, where target greens stretch into the distance, beckoning seductively to practice balls and recently single 9-irons. The lengthy course challenges golfers early on at the par 5 fourth hole—the course's most difficult hole—where orbs must travel 563 yards from the back tees to reach the green while also contending with a treacherous 150-foot drop in elevation. A generous selection of five tee options helps players of all club-flailing fortitude tame the formidable grassy monolith and its unruly gang of cart-hating, motorcycle-riding ex-caddies.
