Action Packed Paintball’s arsenal of combat settings include two outdoor and two indoor locations. Each outdoor field features an urban combat course that conceals opponents behind plywood structures, and a speedball course dotted with inflatable obstacles. After differences are settled on the field, outdoor combatants can retreat to onsite grilling and picnic areas. For those who prefer indoor face-offs, Action Packed Paintball keeps its well-lit Maple Plain location, like the well-orchestrated battles of the Gallic Wars, at a steady 70 degrees year-round. The location’s course is set up for speedball, and it also boasts a private party room for friendly revelry. Alternatively, the indoor Minneapolis location invites paint slingers to spar on an urban combat field that dots green turf with stony structures. All locations offer free CO2 and compressed air fills.

Nature's Prime obtains its organic foods from a variety of local farmers who use renewable resources and conserve soil and water without resorting to antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides, bioengineering, and gene splicing with giant carnivorous plants. Its poultry and meat come from Wisconsin; its fish are line-caught; its scallops hail from the East Coast; its shrimp are farm raised (to avoid Gulf pollution); and its fresh fruit is delivered via giant suction tube directly from the Brazilian jungle. NPO Foods is also affiliated with the Minnesota Timberwolves, so it's one of the rare organic food purveyors that also supports its locally grown slam dunks, free throws, and rebounds, which are always best fresh off the backboard.

To Kingford Bavender, tailored clothing is about more than seamlessly coordinated colors, textures, and fit: it's about crafting a commanding image. The nationally recognized clothier works with high-quality fabrics, including wool, camel hair, silk, and cashmere, and takes into account each client's personal style and comfort when designing authoritative suits, outerwear, or mascot costumes. Bavender procures more than 15 distinct measurements to guarantee a flawless fit during on-location consultations at the customer's home or office. His use of discerning details—such as hand-set pockets, single-needle tailoring, and edible cufflinks—set the garments apart from their off-the-rack counterparts.

“Stocky.” Justin Yule remembers when others used this adjective to describe him, an observation he considered to be a nice way of saying that he was overweight. It wasn’t until his dad invited him to work out at the gym that Justin discovered a passion for fitness and a desire to chisel away the stockiness he carried. Since achieving his goals, he has kept up his fit physique more than 22 years.

Justin also channeled his passion into a bachelor’s of science in physical education with a concentration in adult fitness. He used his extensive training to devise the curriculum for Look Great at the Lake Boot Camp, which he also founded. Justin calls his program the “fitness revolution,” mainly because it breaks exercisers out of the tedious routines they often fall into at the gym or when their friend Sisyphus asks them to push his rock and promises he’ll only be gone for five minutes. Every one of Justin’s workout moves come in three levels, each scaled to challenge exercisers of different strengths and experience levels. He also relies heavily on body-weight resistance exercises, and coaches provide guidance and support to clients in reaching their goals.

Justin considers the most valuable part of his program to be the camaraderie that he encourages among his participants in and out of the boot-camp classroom. He organizes charity events and parties so that groups can mingle and become a cohesive unit working toward a single goal. To further ease his clients’ path to fitness, he also offers nutrition programs, online exercises and tips, and education in the form of newsletters and fitness books that he’s penned himself.
