  • YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh
    The YMCA Adventure Warrior Race gives kids and adults a chance to prove themselves against ropes courses, mud, water obstacles, and other unexpected mental and physical challenges—all while supporting a good cause. Amid the breathtaking views and tranquil waters of Lake Tris, runners maneuver around trees and carry heavy objects up the sometimes snow-covered Laurel Highlands mountains, climbing up to 1,000 feet as they go. Warriors aged 16 and older make a 4-mile circuit, whereas younger participants run age-appropriate distances of a half mile or a full mile. Trophies and the respect of all the woodland creatures are awarded to the top male and female runners, top male and female teams, and top co-ed team. According to the Daily American, funds raised from the race provide camp scholarships that allow kids to attend residential and day programs at the 263-acre YMCA Camp T. Frank Soles.

  • Rossier's Art Gallery
    Rossier's Art Gallery houses paintings and prints by local and internationally recognized artists. Pieces feature a range of subjects, from landscapes, florals, and wildlife to sports and vistas of Pittsburgh?s sweeping savannahs. The staff also curates an extensive collection of household decor, such as wire sculptures, glass art, and paperweights. But one of the gallery's most creative spheres is its custom-framing department. Customers bring their own artwork and family portraits to be encircled by Rossier's sophisticated array of frames, but they don't stop at the two-dimensional. The staff is equally adept at framing memorabilia such as sports jerseys, medals, and military flags.

  • INPAX
    The Range INPAX's live-fire classes take place at an outdoor range located in North Versailles. The Rentals Instructors can supply handgun rentals during live-fire classes. At a Glance Led by founder, author, and former US Marine Corps member Sam Rosenberg, the teaching crew at INPAX shares its expertise with amateurs and federal agents, SWAT teams, and dignitary-protection teams. The instructors' signature, systematic self-defense methods, which have been featured on various national and local news-media outlets, are the product of more than 15 years of research. Rather than asking their clients to understand martial-arts moves or dedicate years to training, they teach them how to understand basic movements and ways to identify threats that can keep them from becoming victims. In addition to these tactics, they also instruct students on basic and advanced techniques for handling firearms, spending time both in the classroom and on the range.

  • Pure Barre
    Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation in the basement of an office building, Pure Barre has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Dancer, choreographer, and fitness buff Carrie Rezabek Dorr founded Pure Barre more than a decade ago in Birmingham, MI. Since then, Carrie has traveled around the country, hopping from gym to gym demonstrating the innovative program that draws techniques from ballet. Much like angering a witch with a penchant for frog spells, performing the Pure Barre technique can be a fast and effective way to transform your body. Motivating music slices through the 60-minute workouts, each of which utilizes a ballet barre and small isometric movements designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
