  • Curves Columbia
    As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. Thirty seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

  • The Cooper's Oak Winery
    The Cooper’s Oak Winery is located on the premises of A&K Cooperage, proprietor of fine American and French oak barrels. This isn't a coincidence—the winery uses those high-quality barrels as vessels for its blended and specialty varietals. The barrels' contribution is clear in sips of the Toasted Oak, a cabernet sauvignon mixed with merlot and aged in heavily toasted oak, and the Triple Oak Bliss, a dark and bold red blend of three domestic grapes, aged in American oak emblazoned with tasty smiley faces. Cooper’s also crafts sweet blush wine, a vidal ice wine, and a French hybrid vignoles.

  • Columbia Academy of Music
    When a school of music also contains a live-performance venue, it?s an indicator that the lessons stick. Such is the case with the Columbia Academy of Music, where private practice rooms sit just steps from The Bridge, a club accustomed to welcoming musical talent from down the street and around the country. A stage within range of instruction can inspire even the most stage-frightened students to step into the spotlight, where they?ll get the hands-on, feet-on stage experience that renders books worthless. The academy?s tuneful staffers are no strangers to this kind of public performance?some instructors have shared the stage with the likes of Chuck Berry, Sting, and Hank Williams III?but many also are experts in what goes on behind the music. In lessons tailored for all ages, skill sets, and music-making manners, the school strengthens the confidence of budding musicians in once-a-week sessions. Instrument instruction infuses students with techniques across a range of musical genres; audio-production and engineering courses teach students how to make solid records and tolerate most singers? misguided requests for more Steak-Umms in the monitor.

  • Hail Ridge Golf Course
    Jones and Norene Gann first imagined transforming their property into a golf course 18 years ago, and constructed an 18-hole course and golf facility now managed by the Rapp family. Open seven days a week, the course challenges golfers with outstretched trees, formidable bunkers and mounds, and hazardous waters. Designated cart paths wind around and through the course, guiding drivers to the next hole on their route or through a wormhole leading to the twenty-third century. Nestled atop the sprawling property, practice facilities help golfers warm up swinging arms, and a pro shop lets athletes restock balls and read up on instructional guides to high-level golfsmanship. In regular golf instruction, owners Bill and Philip Rapp help students fine-tune their swing and boost their game with new skills. On Tuesday evenings, young putters can hone their swinging skills in free lessons.

  • Empire Roller Rink
    Throughout the week, Empire Roller Rink owners Willie and Lisa Trent connect with members of their community by hosting skating lessons, hockey games, and public skating sessions. Willie's father opened the rink in 1938, now Lisa teaches artistic and basic skating lessons, and Willie often disc jockeys skating sessions, pulling tracks from a digital library, which includes a selection of worship songs he breaks out for Friday Christian skate nights. Empire Roller Rink is also home to the Artistic Skate Club, a team that practices creative and competitive skating and travels to competitions across the country in a giant 15-passenger motorized rollerskate.

  • Paintball International
    The Battlecreek Paintball's six fields see prismatic warfare year-round, rain or shine. On any of the five outdoor woodland fields and indoor urban assault course, squads of players mimic firefights with flanking maneuvers and extended periods of playing dead. With normal admission, the staff provides markers and all the protective equipment needed to survive a mural to the face.
