  • The Little Gym Green Bay/Appleton
    In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes opened The Little Gym based on his new take on physical education. His curriculum emphasized motivating children to achieve instead of pressuring them to win. As a result, The Little Gym became a noncompetitive, positive, nurturing environment where young ones could develop physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Since then, The Little Gyms have sprouted up across the country. The programs and classes aim to help kids develop skills such as rhythm and coordination, and kids camps during winter, spring, and summer breaks prevent children from creating finger paintings that express the existential ennui they feel when school is out of session.

  • Mills Entertainment
    Originally opened in 1927, the Genesee Theatre slowly deteriorated over the course of the century until its closing in 1989. But starting in 2001, a $23 million cash infusion from the city allowed 120 volunteers to restore the theater to its Gilded Age splendor. Its elegant trappings include authentic wall fabrics, an exact replica of the original marquee, and a 2,200-pound chandelier that gently spotlights the grand lobby and every audience member passing underneath to show how everyone is a star if you really think about it.

  • Ellipse Fitness Appleton
    At Ellipse Fitness, the only pieces of machinery that you operate are the levers, pulleys, and ball-and-socket mechanisms of your own skeleton. The gyms abstain from treadmills and bikes in favor of a full class schedule and a cooperative group atmosphere. With 35 or more lessons scheduled per week, certified instructors guide students of all experience levels through an ever-changing line-up of strength and cardio drills. These routines incorporate tools such as resistance bands, TRX suspension cords, kettle bells, battling ropes, and kickboxing equipment, though the primary instrument is always the human physique. In addition to their standard classes, the staff also hosts boot-camp sessions and seminars on mastering your metabolism. Their weight-loss programs encompass weekly check-ins, during which clients receive nutritional resources and gauge their progress by taking measurements instead of stockpiling all the food they didn't eat in a jar. Regardless of its ultimate goal, each Ellipse Fitness regimen involves personal attention and a holistic, full-body approach to wellness.

Throughout her life, she has gained a strong groundwork for dance, performing at the prestigious Makaroff School of Ballet and moving on to study contemporary and modern dance in college. Now a teacher at her own studio, she believes that everyone can learn to dance. She aims to free her students of their self-imposed limitations, motivating them to move their bodies to the music and gain confidence in their own styles. Following in a tradition she learned from her parents, Harley also offers reiki sessions for people who want to relax sans toe tapping. The studio’s light and airy atmosphere contributes to the freedom of leaping as high as your body will allow. Upbeat music plays over the speaker system, a cushioned wooden floor prevents injuries, and floor-to-ceiling mirrors wrap around the walls to expose any tap-dancing shadow people.
