After soaring the open skies as an air crewman inside of military helicopters, Chris Duffy decided to use his fine-tuned leadership, interpersonal, and physical strengths to start a business. Now, instead of restoring order from above, Duffy keeps his feet planted and sends pressurized blasts of water upward onto roofs, siding, and thirsty clouds. Since its founding in 2005, Duffy's Dirt-be-Gone has rejuvenated the exteriors of buildings ranging from residential homes to hospitals to 25-story hotels. The licensed and insured company uses pressure washers that powerfully spurt out a specially formulated cleaning solution designed by Chris to break up dirt, mold, moss, and algae without damaging plants or treant house guards. Professional technicians arrive at each job dressed in uniform?jeans or khakis with a Duffy's Dirt-be-Gone shirt?and are often accompanied by Chris himself.

Sunbeams spill through the windows at MeTime Personal Saunas, making tall, green grasses sprout from the planters that line an exposed-brick wall. Down the hall, six personal saunas draw inspiration from these rays to help humans cultivate wellness. Each sauna emanates far-infrared heat, which penetrates the skin to boost circulation, jump-start the immune system, and extract toxins such as mercury and lead. By summoning sweat, the warmth may also help the body shed calories and expired skin cells. Unlike ultraviolet rays, far-infrared beams warm the body uniformly, without burning the skin. To make stress evaporate, each sauna comes with an MP3-friendly audio system, which can fill the space with the soothing sounds of string quartets, ocean waves, or beatboxing seagulls. LED lights help lift gloomy moods with a choice of seven hues, from calming turquoise to energizing red. After marinating in the therapeutic heat, sauna-goers may rehydrate with complimentary bottled water, whisk away sweat with oshibori-style towels, or peruse the spa’s selection of organic skincare and nutrition products.

Richmond Fencing Club has molded budding fencers since JFK was president and humankind had just turned its eyes to the moon. Today, three instructors—each with their own titles from the Virginia Division Championships—helm the educational efforts, overseeing a program that educates students as young as 6 in the foot- and bladework required to wield a fencing foil competitively. They teach in a no-nonsense facility, its cinderblock walls decorated only with pegs to hang fencing equipment, its smooth hardwood floors interrupted only by well-worn fencing lanes. The fencing-dedicated space keeps elaborately uniformed students cool with central air conditioning instead of replacing helmets with ice buckets like lesser establishments.
