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was sick of the personal-training industry—the repetitive exercise programs, the competition between trainers, and the outdated, even dangerous techniques he saw some trainers using.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 awards continue to pile up for Longaberger Golf Course, which in 2014 was named the top public course in Ohio by both Golfweek and Golf Digest. Located about 40 miles outside of downtown Columbus, this Arthur Hills-designed masterpiece meanders gracefully from ridge top to valley. The imaginative design incorporates the area's natural layout into its wide, rolling fairways, and panoramic views around every turn truly immerse golfers into the area's beauty.

Visitors can also appreciate stunning views of the course from inside the 60,000-square-foot clubhouse, where elegant furnishings, cathedral ceilings, and a dramatic stone fireplace wait to greet tired players or thirsty golf carts. Those luxurious details carry over into The Overlook restaurant, whose floor-to-ceiling bay windows and outdoor verandah overlook the 18th hole.

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.
