Since 1998, the team of bike technicians and enthusiasts at Indian Valley Bikeworks has been pairing customers with bikes that suit their physique and riding style. The team’s custom-fitting process—a task they’ve performed more than 10,000 times—ensures that purchases from their inventory of Fuji, Trek, and Surly frames fit their new riders like wheeled gloves.
With 15,000 square feet of floor space between its two locations, Human Zoom houses a vast selection of bikes from Trek, Cannondale, and Santa Cruz, as well as snowboards from Gnu, Roxy, and Arbor. They also stock a variety of accessories and parts such as gloves, shoes, pedals, and wheels. In the repair shop, mechanics fix broken bike spokes, adjust derailleurs, and install new handlebars so riders will have a place to put their hands while biking. The staff also performs 90-minute bike-fitting sessions, during which they interview clients and perform adjustments to optimize their ride’s performance.
At American Fighter MMA Academy, instructors integrate modern fighting philosophies while abiding by the ancient bushido code of the samurai. Training students aged 4 and up, instructors specialize in the teaching of ryukyu kempo pressure-point self-defense and Brazilian jiu-jitsu submission. Classes help mold and hone balance, hand-eye coordination, focus, and self-control in students and teach trainees to count to 10 in Japanese and dream in Bruce Lee fight montages. Cardio-heavy Les Mills BODYCOMBAT classes aim to get hearts racing all while toning muscle and improving self-confidence.
The feeling of wind against your face. That rush of adrenaline as you lean into a hairpin turn. The first time a snowman asks you for your autograph. These are the moments that make skiing one of the world?s most exhilarating sports. While Utah supplies the snow-capped mountains and rolling hills, Skis and Tours handles the equipment. The skiing and snowboarding shop is located within close proximity to ski resorts such as Canyons and Park City. Its expert staff pairs customers with sets of rental poles, skis, boots, and boards from brands such as Rossignol. In addition to renting this gear, they also tune up and wax boards and skis to get them ready for the slopes.
In 1933, the founders of Keswick Cycle opened their doors with a common goal in mind: to make each visitor feel like a part of the family. Almost 80 years later, a staff of avid cyclists and triathletes maintains the same friendly vibe at all three locations, meanwhile stocking an assortment of bikes and accessories. Bicycles from Cannondale, Specialized, Electra, and other big brands conquer myriad terrains, from roads and triathlon courses to mountain trails mucky with discarded cooking oil. Tires, apparel, and other accessories round out the inventory, situated around the shop's central hub, the services department. Here, factory-trained mechanics tune up or overhaul any type of bike or shopping carts masquerading as bikes. These same experts fit athletes for competition at the triathlon studio and, in their spare time, lend a hand to local charities.
