Holme Grown allows oenophiles to experience four of the region's small-production, organic wineries on a semiprivate tour within a comfortable, biodiesel SUV. The knowledgeable and sharply dressed guides will pick up four to five individuals from nearby bed and breakfasts, hotels, or mannequin factories located in Napa Valley or Sonoma as a complimentary service, or they will travel to surrounding locations for an additional charge. Over the course of the tour, would-be wine experts will visit four small-production wineries—such as White Rock Vineyards, Volker Eisele Family Estate, and Teachworth Cabs—that farm organically, avoid synthetic chemicals, and employ sustainable procedures.
UrbanKick's agile trainers push bodies to their full potential with outdoor fitness training, indoor or outdoor one-on-one personal sessions, and 15-week UrbanRun marathon training. On the shores of Oakland's Lake Merritt, small groups of athletes support each other as they cross-train through intensive programs, running through reps of cardio, resistance, and flexibility training without the intimidating flaming hoops used in traditional boot camps. Marathon training in Danville and Walnut Creek divides groups into their proper fitness levels for weekly training runs led by experienced pacers who work to gradually build sprinters' endurance and speed. Trainers welcome exercisers of all fitness levels at all times of year, and supply all gear needed for their instruction.
The mobile technicians from Help My Headlights eschew quick-fix methods when they nurture polycarbonate plastic headlights back to crystal-clear health. Unlike older glass lenses, modern versions can oxidize when exposed to UV rays, pollution, rain, and the bottom of the Mariana Trench, so simple wipe-off treatments won’t produce lasting results. Techs start the meticulous process by taping around the headlight to protect the car's paint. They then treat the headlights before wet sanding the lens to excavate the clear plastic from behind the oxidized surface. They conclude the service by buffing, polishing, and covering the translucent lens with protective coatings.
Before Aaron Harris ever rescued a sore back with massage, he dashed to the aid of others as a paramedic. Today, he applies his knowledge of kinesiology and physiology with a backdrop of soothing sounds rather than sirens to help his clients recover from injuries and battle chronic pain. To ensure top-notch treatments, he staffs his office with current students and alumni of the National Holistic Institute who also studied kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology. These trained therapists are skilled in massage modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, zen shiatsu, and Thai. And when they aren't kneading sinews, they perform holistic techniques such as energy work, aromatherapy, crystal healing, and reiki. They can also leave their office to mend muscles and mobilize joints on-location at events, such as a tin-man convention.
