Avid golfer Chris Verhoff spent many a winter counting down the days until the temperatures would rise and clear away the snow so he could hit the links. Impatient with the grueling winter months, Verhoff had an idea that grew into the Wisconsin Indoor Golf Center, a place that allows golfers to swing their clubs year-round, rain or shine. The 10,000-square-foot space features indoor driving ranges installed by Verhoff himself with his own two hands and one of his feet. Golf simulators transport people through 23 popular courses?including Doral and Pebble Beach?with high-tech software that factors in club speed, ball speed, ball spin, and wind speed to mimic a real game of golf.

Jill Volckmann, the nationally certified instructor at Classic Farms Riding Academy personalizes each lesson to help beginners and advanced riders learn the ropes of English-style riding. With 30 years of experience behind her, including stints in Texas and Kentucky, she puts an emphasis on safety and fosters well-rounded riders by also focusing on grooming and horsemanship. In addition to teaching new students the equestrian ropes, Jill also introduces little ones to friendly horses during Tiny Tot lessons, schedules special private sessions that focus on grooming and horsemanship, and brings the fun of riding to birthday parties and special events. When not busy with human students, she and her team train and show American saddlebreds in competitive divisions that range from English pleasure to hunt seat riding.

Throughout the summer, the paved paths of Frame Park welcome outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and interests, including riders seated on High Roller Fun Rentals's unique bikes and pedal carts. Two-, three-, and four-wheel vehicles transport groups down the 1.7-mile river walk?a path flanked by playground equipment, picnic areas, gardens, and volleyball courts.

For those looking to make a splash, High Roller Fun Rentals also maintains a floating fleet of creature boats, canoes, and kayaks. These inventive vessels allow groups of two, three, or four to navigate the Fox River with ease. And for added convenience, the rental center hands out maps to encourage exploration.

The staff members at Cyclesmith use knowledge gleaned from their own cycling lives and participation in local races to furnish athletes with the necessities for off- or on-road excursions, from Trek and Haro BMX bikes to apparel and accessories from Mavic and Bontrager. Armed with the Fit Kit bicycle-fitting system, technicians tailor new rides to individual frames, providing a ride as custom and smooth as a RoboCop's uniform. Once techs have helped patrons to select fresh cycles from their top-shelf assortment, customers can apply credit from trading in old bikes toward their purchase. The shop also offers repair services to keep cycles running smoothly.

Driven by a desire to share the life-changing potential of martial arts, Dean Konley founded American Dojo in 1994. But his journey to that point wasn’t easy. As a child, Konley struggled with dyslexia, a condition that followed him into adolescence. Weighed down by bullying and constant frustration, he resorted to destructive behavior. Then, Konley found martial arts. Practicing martial arts gave Konley an outlet, and it quickly became a source of the success, discipline, and self-confidence he’d lacked in other areas of life. Konley earned his first black belt in 1986 and hasn’t quit progressing since.

Today, alongside his wife, Virginia, and a staff of highly trained instructors, Konley heads two American Dojo locations. Both of Konley’s facilities are family-oriented, and both offer classes for students as young as 4. Beyond empowering its members through goal-oriented lessons and programs, American Dojo opens its doors for birthday parties, too, allowing youngsters to burn off energy in a more positive manner than teaching the dog how to count cards at the casino.
