Spanning 4,000 square feet, the climbing surfaces at First Avenue Rocks mimic the natural textures of the abundant local sandstone boulder terrain. One hundred varied climbing routes up to 17 feet high greet climbers who choose to ascend by bouldering without ropes on angled walls and roofs dotted with challenging foot-and handholds or on the facility’s ropes courses. For safety, the facility positions its vertical terrain above the floor’s 10-inch-deep Asana pads for safe landings in the event of missed holds or misguided urges to fly. Instructors are available to prep students of all ages and ability levels to tackle the gym's terrain, teaching three stages of introductory climbing courses and two advanced lead-climbing courses. When not on the rocks, guests can hone muscle cooperation through onsite fitness programs in weight training, yoga, CrossFit, and climbing-specific training. Outdoor excursions are also available with the gym's guides, certified by the American Mountain Guides Association, in top rope, sport climbing, and bouldering.

Dedicated to a next-day turnaround for many assignments, Thompson's encases everything from diplomas to completed jigsaw puzzles within the ornate borders of more than 2,000 customizable frames. Guests can also peruse a collection of 300 ready-made frames that will fit snugly around standard-size pictures, or commission custom tabletop frames to showcase unconventionally sized posters. More than 100 framed, beveled mirrors further populate the store, silently reflecting the reversed T-shirt graphics and snarky grins of each shopper's personal doppelgänger. Frames and mirrors are complemented by a collection of original oil paintings, which help homeowners adorn their walls with a colorful still life, a muted landscape, or an unflinchingly honest portrayal of the human condition.

To ensure each of The Fish Market Restaurant’s dishes are as fresh as possible, the two families at the restaurant's helm carefully source the seafood in everything from the eatery’s classic fish and chips to the heartier charbroiled swordfish steak. The chefs often infuse their creations with Greek and Cajun flair by sautéing shrimp with feta cheese and sliced olives or topping snapper with etouffée and crawfish. Thanks to a constant influx of culinary inspiration, the menu expands regularly, adding to the custom selections available for off-site catering services that can nourish gatherings from small dinner parties to massive cloning experiments gone wrong.

After working for decades as a successful oil executive, National Senior Games gold medalist Homer Brown decided to shift gears, opening BumperNets in 1999 to promote his beloved sport of table tennis to the masses. Nestled within the Riverchase Galleria Mall, Brown’s well-stocked, interactive emporium lets visitors hone their ping-pong or pool skills under the tutelage of a trained professional, or master the finer points of team management at the foosball table. Homer and his knowledgeable staff help guests deck game rooms in felt-clad pool tables, glittering pinball machines, and skee-ball alleys for rental or purchase, and can assist with onsite assembly.

What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.
