As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
The staff at TLC Pet Grooming wants all pets to look their best. That's why they spruce up dogs, cats, birds, and ferrets with baths, nail trims, and de-matting inside their welcoming spa-like confines. And they don't stop there. Once the pets are pampered, a staff member poses them in front of a seasonal backdrop for a portrait that pet parents can share with friends or pets can trade for treats.
World champion equestrian Risë Jones owns Spring Valley and personally oversees every lesson, providing a level of classical training that has yielded several show circuit competitive students. Students of all experience levels will benefit from Jones' expertise and discipline, as well as the fun and safe environment complete with PVC fenced, lighted riding arena, four lesson horses, and four lesson ponies, though students are welcome to bring an obligingly saddled neighbor. Lessons can also be scheduled with a group of up to four, making this the perfect holiday gift for an entire posse of hard-to-shop for, rein-less vigilantes.

Though she had been an avid rider since she was a little girl, Amy Smith of Willow Run Farm didn’t find her true calling as an equestrian until she turned 20. It was at this age that she began a job at a rehabilitation center, where she took a hands-on role in caring for horses in need and nursing them back to health. Amy quickly adopted a holistic approach to horsemanship, a passion that continues to enrich her career. Today, Amy teaches her students the whole spectrum of caring for horses, everything from grooming to horse health and safety—as opposed to focusing solely on riding techniques or hair-spraying the horse’s mane into a mohawk. Above all, Amy instills responsibility, self-confidence, and a sense of accomplishment in each of her riders.
