The Oriental Martial Arts College (OMAC), founded by Sr. Grand Master Joon P. Choi? a 10th Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo? has been teaching the Moogong-Ryu system of martial arts since 1963. All of the dojang's instructors must know Korean martial arts in order to make classes accessible to as many people as possible. OMAC's classes range from Little Tigers (ages 3?6) classes for kids and youth (7+), taekwondo, hapkido, gumdo, fitness and healing arts like power tai chi, action yoga and kimoodo healing art, to advanced black belt training with Grandmaster Choi throughout their multiple Central Ohio locations. OMAC has more than 35 branches worldwide.

Carlos Rubio of Salsamante says they aim to give their students the “confidence and skills to dance the salsa anywhere, anytime, and with anyone.” And that’s what they instill when they teach the seductive and graceful moves of salsa—confidence. They do that during private and group lessons for couples and individuals. Classes are designed for complete novices as well as veterans looking to shake the rust from their dancing feet.

Murals of forests and beaches greet students as they enter Oreste Dance & Fitness Studio, inspiring them to move their limbs like soaring branches and majestic ocean waves. Ballroom classes invite singles and couples to hone waltzes and rumbas, and Zumba cardio workouts pair Latin-inspired dance steps with rhythmic world music. Non-dance options such as Vinyasa yoga cultivate strength and flexibility with flowing stretches and poses.

A carefully curated collection of fitness equipment furthers toning outside of class with a treadmill, spin bike, elliptical machine, and strength-building equipment. Cable TV, WiFi, and cushy leather furniture help weary bodies and rhythm-addled brains recharge after class in the lounge—which, like the rest of the facilities, is open 24/7.

Shooting a 55 over nine holes isn't much to brag about. But doing it your first time on a golf course makes it noteworthy, and being 12 years old at the time makes it remarkable. Since then, PGA member Chip Inks has shown his natural golfing ability in more than 50 PGA section events and led more than 10,000 lessons. Whether at the driving range or on the course, Chip coaches golfers until they play consistently using any club in the bag. A V1 pro video-analysis system meticulously compares students' swings to those of professional players and Western saloon doors. Chip is also certified to fit players with Callaway, Titleist, and Mizuno clubs.

Ables Golf on Avery doesn't let the seasons dictate business. Players can improve their skills year-round thanks to 30 covered and heated tees, and, during warmer months, aim for the dozen target greens while swinging across two acres of grass tees. Even with these expansive driving-range areas, Ables doesn't neglect the short game. The facility also boasts a tournament-quality putting green, a pair of pitching greens, and a nicely landscaped 18-hole miniature golf course that's ideal for family outings, younger children, and training baby golf carts. As an added bonus, PGA and LPGA instructors are also available on site for group and private lessons.
