To prepare for his Army training, CrossFit Waukesha's Coach Ryan first sought out several personal trainers. When their regimens didn't have the desired effects, he decided to take his health—and subsequently, that of others—into his own hands. By running CrossFit Waukesha, Ryan is able to lift, run, and toss medicine balls alongside his students. He leads classes whose movements are scalable to all skill levels, utilizing tools such as pull-up bars, barbells, and gymnastic rings to craft ever-varied routines. His expertise as an ACSM-certified trainer complements his devotion to the CrossFit method—exercises that mimic real-life movements, performed at a high intensity for functional fitness.
Michael's Italian Restaurant's kitchen cupboards are bare. Their sparseness doesn't stem from a food shortage, but from the eatery's devotion to fresh ingredients. To wit: chefs deftly knead fresh batches of homemade pizza dough daily, and they coat the disks with ladles of from-scratch pizza sauce. They simmer organic beef with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, and they fly in fresh fish from Chicago each morning before enhancing the fillets with white wine lemon sauce. In addition to traditional dishes, they've added contemporary flourishes to the menu such as gluten-free pizzas and pastas and meatballs equipped with 4G technology. Regardless of which entree guests select from the expansive menu, knowledgeable servers are always on hand to suggest pairings from the eatery's vast wine list.

Wisconsin Vision’s crew screens eyes for aberrations and illnesses and presides over an extensive selection of designer frames and lenses. At each location, optometrists perform thorough exams, producing prescriptions that recommend single-vision or progressive lenses from Zeiss. Newly ground lenses can then be fitted into any number of designer frames from the likes of Ray-Ban, Coach, or Calvin Klein. Antiscratch coatings protect the glass panes, and Transitions lenses allow any set of specs to turn into sunglasses when one steps outside or auditions for a classic-rock band.
