Beth and Jim Trammell started 5280 Gymnastics to share their love of gymnastics with students young and old, novice and expert, casual and competitive. They assembled an elite team of coaches that trained Olympic gymnast Sasha Artemev and placed graduates on the gymnastics teams at Stanford University, into officer's education at West Point, and onto the diving team at Northwestern University. Under this refined tutelage, the two USA Gymnastics teams that regularly train within 5280's confines took home awards at regional, state, and national levels of competition.
The owners and coaches recognize that not everyone desires to train for peak levels of gymnastics competition, and so the range of classes encompasses plenty of other options, including casual, confidence-inspiring play for tots and free running and parkour classes for older students. During the summer, daily camps keep kids busy during sunny hours with athletic games and arts-and-crafts projects such as building a balance beam out of popsicle sticks.
Exercise enthusiasts Annie Garland and Lori Melchior founded Epic Ryde to provide indoor cyclists with an experience that rivals that of outdoor cycling. Their modern facility recreates everything but the wind in riders’ hair, with bikes positioned in stadium seating in view of Sloan's Lake and immersive widescreen video of outdoor scenes. Completing the scene are RealRyder ABF8 stationary bikes, whose articulating frame allows riders to lean from side to side to simulate turns or demonstrate extreme swagger.
Epic Ryde’s facility also incorporates TRX training, which uses resistance from suspended body weight and gravity to give exercisers a full-body workout. A team of certified instructors teaches the array of classes, which include Mountain Ryde and Epic Mix, a combination of cycling and TRX training.
Like farming, picnics, and attempting to climb a skyscraper with suction cups, golf outings are dependent on ideal weather conditions. Striker Golf's facility takes rain and cold out of the equation by offering golfers a chance to play in a climate-controlled compound. Within the 4,200-square-foot facility rest four expansive hitting bays for practicing long drives and a 700-square-foot putting green for fine-tuning one's short game. HD golf simulators replicate rounds on famous courses through vivid images and precise motion-tracking sensors to give players an authentic experience without having to dodge runaway golf carts.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center understand that each child learns differently. They design custom lessons based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Sylvan's instructors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12 to improve their confidence and independence leading to their educational success. Many of Sylvan’s certified teachers work in local schools and have familiarized themselves with common practices, which help them understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
