Melanie has been active in the health community—as a fitness consultant, personal training, and yoga and Pilates teacher—for more than 14 years. But it wasn’t until she discovered pole fitness while mining that she was able to combine all her passions into one activity. As she started experimenting with pole fitness, she felt her experience with yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes coming together into one comprehensive workout. She knew that with her background in health and fitness, and passion for pole fitness, she would be able to help students achieve their fitness goals. And so PoleFIT Revolution was born. Today, she and a team of instructors teach a variety of classes, such as pole fitness, aerial yoga, boot camp, and stretching classes to ensure all students are receiving the workout that best suits their body.

The name encompasses not only the mission, but the scope as well. Kids Matter International works to show children that they are important even if they live in poverty—even if they were abandoned or orphaned—setting their sights as close to home as Northern Texas and as far away as India and Honduras. In Texas, its work is apparent in children heading to school with new clothing and supplies. In India, an orphanage gives children a home through political unrest and natural disaster. And in Honduras, the organization provides transitional housing for young girls who have faced abuse.
Yet the people behind Kids Matter International know that when facing a foe as intractable as childhood poverty, no one can solve the problem alone. That’s why the organization—which comprises just four full-time staff members—teams up with hundreds of volunteers and dozens of corporate partners to put on programs that directly benefit disadvantaged children.

Dave Fannin remembers when treadmills were found only in doctors’ offices. As someone who has watched the fitness industry evolve since his first front-desk job at a gym in 1984, it’s no surprise that his weight-loss programs incorporate a wide range of techniques. Since opening his training business seven years ago, he’s helped more than 1,000 clients achieve a healthier lifestyle with a combination of nutritional coaching, fat-burning workouts, bursts of cardio, and ample support and motivation. He shares these regimens through one-on-one sessions, small-group personal training, boot-camp classes, and by acting them out in games of charades. Regardless of a client’s fitness level or unsuccessful attempts at weight loss in the past, Dave welcomes the challenge of helping them get healthy.
A nonprofit organization promoting cinematic art, the Lone Star Film Society gives three-star members free admission to select events at the annual Lone Star International Film Festival (LSIFF), 25% off festival passes, entry to year-round panels and classes, and a 2011 LSIFF t-shirt. At the LSIFF, cinephiles can watch new independent films and listen to luminaries like past guests Robert Rodriguez or Harry Dean Stanton speak in the curious tongue of faraway Hollywood. Three-star members also receive advance notice for sneak previews, film retrospectives, or protospectives on high concepts still gestating in the minds of baby producers.
The 17th annual Celebrity Cutting event raises funds for the Careity Foundation while bucking fans to the edge of their seats with equestrian competition, celebrity appearances, and performances by country-music stars. This year, a fresh lineup of famous faces saddles up in search of horse cutting glory. Judged by a panel of experts, competitive cutting bouts spotlight the relationship between rider and horse, as the tandem work together in attempt to prevent shifty cattle from slipping past and rejoining the herd without first presenting proper identification. A combination of speed, agility, and balance, 2.5-minute rounds are scored on each sprightly stallion's training and skill. Meanwhile, live performances by Lyle Lovett, Presley Tucker, Radney Foster, and various other stars help assuage the heat of competition faster than the intial bites of a frozen salt lick.
