In 1977, David Schwartz had to get his tennis racquet re-strung. Disappointed to find that the service would take three days at the local sporting goods shop, David did what anyone would do: he opened his own place to stock high-quality tennis gear and offer same-day racquet re-stringing.
That original 750-square-foot shop has since turned into the 19,000-square-foot sporting goods emporium that is The Tennis & Golf Company. Over the years, David has expanded his store's inventory beyond just tennis goods—these days it includes golf gear, running shoes, and general fitness apparel from the industry's top brands. The store also features demo areas, where customers can try out new racquets and clubs to make sure they feel comfortable and are not made of plutonium.

Mark Cortis wants people to feel safe and comfortable when firing a handgun, so much so that the NRA-certified instructor offers a lifetime retake option for his concealed-carry students. That's no small gesture. Since 1991, Mr. Cortis has trained thousands of people, including those who work as professional security officers, private detectives, and law-enforcement officers. He's also pretty easy to get ahold of, offering classes seven days a week.
An active-duty officer with the Detroit Police Department, Jeff Banks helps students of all levels of marksmanship obtain a state Concealed Pistol License, also known as a CPL or CCW permit. With that aim, he teaches the Michigan CCW/CPL Training Class that, in addition to imparting the basics of operating a handgun, covers methods of non-violent conflict resolution.
The instructors at Al Irish's Shut Up and Box channel more than 14 years of experience into intense circuit-training workouts brimming with dynamic movements and power-packed blows. In addition to variable workout formats such as TRX straps and kettlebells, classes feature live DJ tunes that couple music and fitness better than a mariachi band performing on a treadmill. Captivating laser projections zip and scatter across the gym walls and replace traditionally somber gym decor with an invigorating, club-style atmosphere.
