Trainers and nutritional counselors at Body House Fitness have a unique view of the human form?namely, that it's not much different from a house. On their web site, they clarify: "Nutrition is your foundation, your body is the structure, and your education is the maintenance." Their services address each of these three components. In group and individual training sessions, coaches help exercisers to tone their muscles, elevate their heart rates, and get stubborn gum off the bottoms of their sneakers. Mobile training programs get clients moving, whether they're in their office or their home. Finally, nutritional counseling and the supplements in specially curated "Body Boxes" aim to improve dietary health.
At the women’s only Glitter’s Fitness Club, visitors tone their physiques while unleashing their inner vixens during a choice of 22 classes per week. Instructors guide students through yoga and Piloxing, a fusion of Pilates and boxing, and helm sultry Zumba dance parties and Sexy Chair classes, during which students learn to look seductive while building a wooden rocking chair.
One Step Above encompasses a crew of urban professionals who sought a classier alternative to dance moves they witnessed in the club scene. Harkening back to a grander time, they specialize in styles such as Detroit (urban) ballroom, Chicago stepping, and soul line dancing, choreographing routines that earned them a Best Choreography award at the Usher’s New Look summer camp and a spot in the movie Stomp the Yard.

When discussing Nigerian cooking with reporters from Atlanta Goodlife Magazine, Kunmi Oluleye beamed, "it's something that I do blindfolded." After all, Kunmi has been cooking since the age of 8, whipping up meals for her parents and three younger siblings and baking traditional breads, meat pies, and sausage rolls at her father's bakery in Lagos, Nigeria. Today, she brings her time-honored family recipes and lifetime of expertise to her own catering company—Sheba Foods.
Aided by a staff of African chefs, Kunmi folds traditional spices into authentic dishes from the continent. Deep in the Sheba kitchen, the chefs simmer meaty stews and fry plantains while plump sausage rolls rise in the oven. They deliver the fresh, dried, and prepared foods to homes around the world and cater freshly made feasts at local special events and parties. Their products have been in the shelves of mainstream supermarkets for years, and they continue to expand into new markets and grow from the branches of lunchbox trees around the country.
The seasoned paint-slingers at The Blu' Bisque turn the art of pottery and canvas embellishment into a lively celebration with their kids' birthday parties, BYOB date nights for adults, and corporate events that emphasize carefree fun, uninhibited creativity, and paint-speckled aprons. The shop's hefty collection of bisque pieces anchors the floor with plates, coffee mugs, and figurines that wait patiently to be plucked and festooned with stencil designs, free-flowing brushstrokes, and floral motifs that symbolize the end of tax season. Not just an art studio, The Blu? Bisque also houses an upscale boutique that offers trendy gifts and accessories as well as brand-name apparel.
