  • Jazzercise National
    Today, it's undeniable: Jazzercise is a worldwide empire, spanning more than 1,800 locations and 32,000 weekly classes across the globe. It's also hip; gone are the leotards and legwarmers of the 1980s, replaced with a high-intensity blend of cardio, strength training, kickboxing and power yoga performed to hits by chart-toppers from Shakira to Justin Timberlake. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set, with recent additions such as Fusion, Core, and Strike broadening the workouts' variety and application. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background. This sense of community keeps Jazzercise devotees coming back, but so too do the results; benefits ranging from weight loss and boosted core strength to increased flexibility and stress relief. Jazzercise's continued success can be traced to the innovation of its founder, Judi Sheppard Missett. While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, she decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. Little did she know that this ?just for fun? class was the prototype for what would become the Jazzercise sensation.

  • Wheel & Sprocket
    Chris Kegel started at Wheel & Sprocket in 1973, two weeks after the bike shop opened. Back then, he was a bike mechanic, but over the past four decades, as the bike shop grew to multiple locations, Chris worked his way up. Today, he's Wheel & Sprocket's CEO, and keeps the company true to its founding goal: making bike rides more fun. Wheel & Sprocket does that not only by selling bikes in more than 18 categories, but also by taking care of them. Its mechanics can repair any bike they sell, and they also offer comfort-enhancing bike fittings. Every week, they also highlight cycling's social aspect by hosting group bike rides, which unlike the name implies, doesn't involve everyone piling onto one bicycle.
