Pure Fitness (formerly known as Powerhouse Fitness and still owned by Scott and Nikki Holland) has a full roster of certified personal trainers and seasoned group-fitness instructors who guide exercisers to physical peaks, building strong muscles and healthy lifestyles. The workout room helps guests to slim down their silhouettes with new exercise equipment, including calorie-torching cardio machines and dumbbells perfect for toning biceps or hurling at cardboard cutouts of Charles Atlas. There's also a recently added athletic-training center.
Group classes range from Les Mills dance aerobics to CrossFit functional training, which strengthens sinews with Olympic lifting drills and gymnastics-inspired bodyweight exercises. A juice bar replenishes vitamins and minerals, and saunas banish stress with warm, dry air. To help parents squeeze exercise into busy schedules, the gym offers childcare services seven days a week.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 1,800 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
Most of Boston Car Care's locations open shop seven days a week. That's because they know that mechanical problems can happen throughout the week, and that engines don't always take Sundays off for diesel-mimosa brunches. So technicians stand by all weeklong to bring cars to peak performance. In addition to oil changes, tire rotations, and inspections, the team offers comprehensive car-care packages that cover a balanced diet of maintenance. These care packages promise the full attention of a qualified technician, who takes a close look at the engine, tires, belts, and bristles in order to keep cars on the road and off the shoulder.
At three area locations, Atlanta Car Care Center's teams of technicians keep motorists driving safely in healthy, happy automobiles. The auto techs perform tasks big and small, from major transmission overhauls to routine maintenance jobs such as balancing tires, fixing flats, and giving chest bumps to fired-up bumpers. They also have plenty of on-the-road advice for drivers to keep machines moving smoothly year-round.
