In View Golf renders rainchecks obsolete by virtually teleporting patrons to more than 30 famed golf courses—including Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill—via 12'x9' high-def projection screens. As golfers take to the cyberlinks, video analysis software, previously available only to touring PGA and LPGA pros, records every swing, capturing such statistics as shot distance, club-head speed, and the golf ball's potential earning value. During a 45-minute private lesson, In View's professional instructors analyze the videos to make individualized adjustments to patrons' natural golf swings. Or forgo in-person tips on chips and grips, and instead opt for a round of 18 holes in the golf simulator with a fellow iron-wielder, using the instant video feedback to see and measure the results of tweaks to techniques and tempers.

It was 2007 when event planner Desmone Black bought her first dance pole. She realized that a pole's presence, like an elf in a bustier, could add just the right mix of sauciness and whimsy to a party. When she brought dance polls to her events, the women loved it. That got the cogs in Desmone's head turning. Pole dancing could make for a really fun workout. And that's how Sway Dance and Fitness was created. At the studio, Desmone teaches students the fundamentals of pole dancing in beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes.
