Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, staff meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength, cardio condition, and bionic-limb manufacturers. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthful eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.
Flabbergast occupies jumpy juveniles with an indoor kingdom of colorful slides and cushy trampoline-floored rooms. Set kids loose to ricochet off the walls of six giant inflatables, or accompany them to the giant climbing fortress to teach how our mountaineers practiced feudalism. Elsewhere, Flabbergast's huge arcade area plays host to more than 50 games, and the café builds up playtime energy with a menu of snacks. All children younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult; in between peeking at their youngsters from the lounge area, chaperones can revel in grown-up comforts by sinking into a plush chair, watching the flat-screen TV, browsing on the free wireless Internet, or comparing driver's-license photos.
For the past 29 years, John and Loie Laimon have proudly contributed to the tight-knit fishing community that surrounds them by running their own fishing-and-bait business. Whether they are selling U.S.-made, handcrafted baits or other handpicked products, renting pontoons for small groups, or winterizing boat motors by fastening Santa hats to them, the Laimons approach each service personably and attentively. This approach has helped them grow to two locations on Pewaukee Lake.
