Drs. J. Clarke Sanders and Erin Biehle helm the team of experienced dentists, periodontists, endodontists, and oral surgeons at Stonecreek Dental Care. With so many specialists on staff, the facility can cater to clients with a variety of dental needs, from implants to Invisalign braces. It's only fitting that they're equipped with the best technology available, including digital x-rays and laser treatments. Much of this technology is intended to make patients as comfortable as possible. And if that's not enough, the office is furnished with plush leather chairs, a fireplace, and a refreshment bar that should do the trick.
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.
Omari Kittrell, a Pilates- and SilverSneakers-certified trainer at Optimo Fitness Association, takes inspiring his clients to the next level—when their energy flags, he does their workouts along with them. He and his eclectic group of fellow trainers, such as engineer-turned-martial-artist Jeff Love, will even make house visits to accommodate their clients. Their passion for fitness shines just as brightly in their more-traditional group classes, which run the gamut from Pilates’ lean-muscle building to kickboxing, a combat-inspired style that tones bodies more effectively than just head butting whoever annoys you.
Open year-round, Deer Creek State Park's championship-style course administers a 350-acre test of club control, patience, and aim to golfers of all skill levels. As dimpled balls traverse from tees to holes throughout the par-72 course, they have to avoid an array of obstacles, including 52 sandy traps, 10 ponds, and numerous distractingly beautiful trees with distractingly hard-to-hear singing voices. With four par-3 holes, the Jack Kidwell-designed maze features lengthy bluegrass fairways finely combed with real banjo strings. Manicured bentgrass greens and French-tipped fringes offer golfers a curvy, challenging short game. Golfers looking to warm up their elbows before using them to steer the included cart can take advantage of Deer Creek's driving range and practice putting green.
