Western-style boxing. Thai boxing. Wrestling. These are just a few of the fighting techniques that make up krav maga, an Israeli self-defense system. At Alpha Krav Maga Connecticut, whose owner has been training in the martial arts for more than 30 years, instructors teach these skills and demonstrate how to use them in real-world situations. In addition to self-defense, krav maga can also help students lose weight and build muscle.

The technicians at Cheshire Cycle know bikes inside and out, not only because they repair them on a daily basis, but also because they spend hours and hours riding them. The adventuresome crew even sponsors a road-racing team that took home more than 50 top finishes in 2012 alone. They couple this insider knowledge with advanced technology to perform like-a-glove fittings and offer services that range from basic tune-ups to total overhauls. Their shop stocks reputable brands, including bikes by Scott, Jamis Bicycles, and Stolen BMX and clothing by designers such as Louis Garneau, Fox, and Pearl Izumi. Whatever bikes or equipment the staff don't have on the shelves they can order from a catalog supplier or have the elves in the backroom make from scratch.
