Yoga on High serves as the focal point for a growing community of yoga enthusiasts dedicated to diverse, yet related practices. The studio caters to such a wide range of interests by employing more than 30 instructors. Each instructor possesses a unique yoga philosophy that complements the studio's overall goal of creating a welcoming environment for students of all ages and skill levels. Additionally, Yoga on High's comprehensive teacher-training programs swell the studio's community by fostering the next generations of impassioned instructors.

At Yoga on High, the instructors embrace three core styles of practice. Iyengar-based Hatha classes emphasize physical alignment and mind-body awareness. Ashtanga sessions invigorate students with more active poses and a heated studio space that can reach 80 degrees. Vinyasa classes teach attendees to link breath with movement, creating seamlessly transitioning asana sequences. However, the studio doesn't limit itself to these three styles. In addition to aerial yoga and Pilates, the schedules include specialty classes that explore different aspects of yoga?meditation, breathing techniques, prop-assisted recovery poses?in greater depth.

More than 10 years ago, a young couple dreamed up Titans Gym—a 24-hour facility that would house exercise equipment, tanning services, and a cafe teeming with nutritious snacks. Since then, Geoff and Niki DelGrosso have laid the bricks of that ambition, packing their two gyms with row upon row of advanced Strive, Precor, and Magnum equipment and three levels of professional tanning beds. The duo hired a team of fitness instructors to lead an abundance of group exercise classes, personal-training sessions, and surprise games of Red Rover in their private studios. To refuel exercisers, the onsite Titan Up café serves up a dietician-designed menu of wholesome smoothies, pizzas, and desserts. In the end, the couple's efforts have earned accolades from numerous fitness media publications, and their studios have won the title of Best Urban Gym from Cleveland Scene magazine.

When Jason Reser isn't pouring his energy into competitive mountain-bike racing and trail improvement, he's tending to his business?Reser Bicycle Outfitters, which was named one of America's best bike shops for 2013 by the National Bicycle Dealer Association. At two stores, one of which earned a Best Bike Shop recognition from Northern Kentucky Magazine in 2012, he leads a team of competitive cyclists, technicians, and fitting specialists certified by the Serotta International Cycling Institute. At the Over-the-Rhine location, staffers match customers to city-friendly bikes and accessories; at the Newport, Kentucky store, they instead oversee a stock specializing in sports-focused bikes. Their inventory encompasses brands such as BMC, Civia, Orbea, and Ridley. The technicians service all makes and models in onsite repair shops, treating bicycles with everything from basic tune-ups to major overhauls to unproductive psychotherapy sessions. They also measure customers and frames at more than 30 points and swap out parts to complete custom fittings.

In addition to matching customers with any necessary equipment, Jim can rent out eager skiers a condo at Boyne Mountain’s Disciples Ridge, a scenic hideaway within walking distance of slopes, restaurants, shops, and a replica of the world’s first icicle.

People who have played golf now that it's a notoriously challenging game, but for many living with disabilities, even getting to the first tee is a challenge and accomplishment. Edwin Shaw Challenge Golf Course was built in 1999 as part of the Edwin Shaw Rehabilitation Institute to provide golf programs for people with disabilities, so it's designed with ease-of-access in mind. Features such as wheelchair-accessible paths and handrails on the tees make it accessible for everyone, including those recovering from strokes, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and amputations. While there are only three holes, each has three sets of tees so a full nine-hole round can be played. The facility is designed both disabled and able-bodied golfers of all ages with a 12-acre driving range, a practice green, and indoor hitting range.

There's seldom a silent moment at Dayton Center Courts and Tennis Academy. Ten indoor courts and four outdoor clay courts reverberate with the metronomic sound of baseline rallies and shuffling feet. On these courts, players of all abilities?ranging from "casual" to "serious" to "advanced"?take advantage of instructional clinics and lessons or they can join a league to get more match play. Kids as young as 4 begin their path to aces and winners in the junior program, which uses modern training techniques such as custom balls that make it easier for youngsters to learn proper mechanics. Ball machines facilitate independent practice sessions, and a pro shop equips players with new rackets, shoes, and strings, which make air-guitar sessions look more realistic.
