Brothers William and Norman Dabish opened the first Powerhouse Gym in Highland Park, Michigan, in 1975. That gym still stands today in its original location, and has more than 300 sister sites throughout the world, which have hosted workouts by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cameron Diaz, Jerome Bettis, and other celebrities. The internationally recognized chain of gyms keeps its 1.2 million members in shape through fitness classes and a host of free weights and resistance machines at every location. Powerhouse Gym’s rapid growth has even led to the development of a line of branded sportswear, an annual magazine, an internal broadcast network, and the gym's own proprietary muscle.

Bees help our ecosystem thrive, pollinating plants as they fly between them to keep our planet's flora diverse and healthy. Yoga serves a similarly comprehensive, connective purpose for the health of our minds and bodies, according to instructors Julia and Nicole Bush. That, and the honey moat they built, is why they named their center Yoga Bee Studio. The classes they and instructor Jennie teach incorporate a variety of sensory elements and yoga styles. "Practicing multiple styles and techniques," say the Bushes, "allows your body to feel its full range of experience."

Among the classes Julia, Nicole, and Jennie teach is Candelight Vinyasa, which is designed to shift students' focus toward the way poses feel rather than what's going on around them. There's also hot Vinyasa, which takes place when the wood-accented studio reaches 90 to 100 degrees. Hatha routines feature poses held for extended periods of time. Restorative classes are recommended for those who are older or healing from injuries. They use props, like soft wedges and rubber chickens that give pep talks, for a gentler experience.

Passionate staff members stroll through bell-shaped fairy doors at The Bead Gallery’s Ann Arbor location, which has housed a voluminous spread of crafting accessories in an idyllic Victorian abode for more than 20 years. Both here and at the store's Howell locale, sprawling aisles house an epic selection of Czech pressed glass beads, Swarovski crystals, and semiprecious gemstones, which customers can buy loose, by the strand, or in repurposed Skittles bags. Crafters can also sign up for classes that cycle through beadwork, metal and stone techniques, and methods for manipulating wire and glass. Along with their expert instruction, The Bead Gallery’s crackerjack staff can also flex their restringing skills to repair beaten-up baubles.
