While attending Austin College, two important things happened to Kirby and Kristi Carmichael: they fell in love with art, and with each other. When Kirby moved to Italy after graduation to expand his pottery education, Kristi followed. During that time, she discovered she had a knack for majolica painting––a craft that Renaissance-era artists used to decorate vases, jars, and plates, all of which Leonardo da Vinci invented. The couple realized they had a sturdy link between their talents, and eventually returned to the United States jobless, engaged, and ready to share what they'd learned.

In October 2005, the Carmichaels opened Quiggly's Clayhouse, where potters and painters alike have since been crafting masterpieces and sharpening their skills with lessons. The studio's flexible walk-in availability encourages artists to visit whenever inspiration strikes—be it for painting pottery, sculpting clay, fusing glass, or forging mosaics. Frequent themed events also bring groups together in the name of casual creativity, including adult wheel nights, ladies’ nights, and kids’ nights.

At a time when many schools around the country are forced to cut back on art programs, Abrakadoodle has emerged to fill the empty creative space left behind. The studio began in 2002, when founders Mary Rogers and Rosemarie Hartnett set out to unify proven educational methods with kid-friendly art instruction. By opening Abrakadoodle, the duo wanted youngsters to experience one of the most rewarding aspects of art: having fun.

Today, Mary and Rosemarie’s vision has developed to include mobile programs that expand imaginations across the United States, as well as studios stationed throughout the world. With guidance from Abrakadoodle’s certified teachers, students aged 20 months to 12 years practice various means of self-expression during painting, drawing, sculpting, and design classes. While developing new skills and keeping the stain-remover industry in business, pintsize Picassos explore their own talents and learn about professional artists. Abrakadoodle keeps all of its class sizes small and caters to kids of any skill level.

Even though they're officially running toward a finish line 5 kilometers away, you can tell participants in the Rave Run are actually headed to a pretty trippy party. Bedecked in glow-in-the-dark clothing and glow bands and sticks and holding flashlights, headlights, and other forms of lighting, they take off from the starting line and speed into the night. Since runners don't need to program a rooster to wake them up at 5 a.m., they tend to be well rested, which means they have plenty of energy left after the race to enjoy the postrace shindig that goes all through the night.

Thomas Volmer credits his wife, Rachel, for inspiring them to start helming boot camps. She wasn’t always a fitness guru, though. "She was a commercial banker and she was 70 pounds overweight," Volmer recalls. Once she started to reclaim her life, "she just fell in love with fitness," he says. She eventually dropped 80 pounds with proper exercise and nutrition, spurring her to earn her AFAA personal training certification and pursue a career as a full-time trainer.

Personal experience lends Rachel and the other trainers—including Sharon Monk, who lost more than 200 pounds by exercising and eating healthily—empathy and a motivating demeanor when working with campers. At each location, they get groups doing pushups, swinging kettlebells, and flipping tires in a positive environment that's focused on teamwork, rather than competition. "You start as a group, you finish as a group," says Thomas. "But the activities that you do in between might be different based on your abilities."

In addition to leading sessions, Rachel creates easy-to-use online meal plans (including a vegetarian plan), which campers can customize to help them stay on track. Options range from the simple, such as cereal with fruits, nuts, and flaxseeds, to the creative, including honey-sweetened oatmeal peanut-butter cookies. She also includes the calorie count for each recipe. Users can pick from simple meals made for one person or larger entrees designed with an entire family or pet elephant in mind.

Owner and educator Rashida Hobbs has always had a passion for music and dance, leading her to open Pole'iticians Fitness Studio, where she and a troupe of certified instructors create a supportive setting for ladies to build strength through sensual dance classes and workshops. Invented by Hobbs, Floormotion classes, also known as Sensual Dance, focus on the art of erotic movements, building on the principles of cardio striptease to transform students' regular dance moves into sexy shimmies. Pole-dance classes impart students of all skill levels with erotic moves to add to their exotic bag of tricks, enhancing the quality of future routines performed for a significant other, in front of the mirror, or during awkward silences in idle conversations. The Pole'iticians team also leads a breadth of Zumba, dance, and yoga classes, and opens the spacious studio for private parties and special events.
