CrossFit is a high-intensity, results-oriented program designed for all fitness levels, luring lethargic muscles out of hibernation until they rise with walnut-crunching fury. Skilled trainers help build body strength and foster a healthy competitive spirit within classes, lending once-tender trainees the mental toughness to soften pretzels telepathically. An ego-free environment and no-nonsense interior provide the setting for grunts, squats, rowing, clean-and-jerks, pushups, and more. Sessions last about an hour and are scheduled throughout the morning and afternoon, so there's every reason to leave your inflatable castle to enjoy some refreshing exercise.
Licensed cosmetologist and make-up and nail artist Doreen Matheny has a passion for making her clients look and feel their best, earning a coveted Brides' Choice award from WeddingWire in 2013. Her skill set spans a wide range of cosmetic treatments, from soothing spa mani-pedis and natural hair removal, to wedding day makeup packages and natural-looking sunless tanning.
Speaking of tanning, each of Doreen's UV-free spray tans is a work of art applied by a real-life skilled technician, not an orangey glow obtained by an automated booth or an accidental fall into a vat of molten butterscotch. As a result, customers can expect a natural, glowing bronze customized to their specific skin type and tone.
Locally owned and operated by a family with more than 25 years of restaurant experience, Inner Circle Pizza has been spinning homemade pizza dough in Austintown since 1999. Watery-mouthed patrons can quell hunger pains with Inner Circle's versatile menu of munchables, which offers a variety of specialty pizzas. Nibble on a chicken bacon ranch pizza ($7.29–$19.99) or admire the thick crust shell on a taco pizza bedecked with sausage, cheddar, mozzarella, taco seasoning, diced lettuce, tomatoes, and a side of sour cream ($3.49–$19.99) as it explodes beautifully against an unadorned wall. Inner Circle Pizza's popular jumbo wings are made fresh and lathered in one of a plethora of sauces, such as garlic ranch, parmesan garlic, teriyaki, or kamikaze—an ideal snack for watching the big game or C-SPAN's newest congressional rock opera. The vast menu also boasts barbecue ribs ($9.49 half slab, $16.99 whole slab), pulled-pork sandwiches ($5.79), Philly steak sandwiches ($5.49), and meatball subs ($5.59), as well as traditional Italian pasta dinners. Thirsty patrons can delight in the full bar, equipped with liquor, wine, and nine different draft beers for making libations to pizzeria deities.
Youngstown Propane has been fueling sizzling barbecues and cozy homes for nearly 30 years. Heed the warbling of the birds and the entreaties of frozen chuck and prepare for a summer of grilling with a propane tank refill. Customers can refill their own vessel or request assistance before meditating on the perfect marriage of savory meat, roasted sweet corn, and unsettlingly friendly neighbors. Upon return to the homestead, grills will snort and paw the ground at the sight of the tank that, like a mackerel-shaped station wagon, is filled to the gills with fuel.
The ClassRoom challenges fitness fiends and neophytes alike with a schedule packed with 10 different types of booty-kicking group classes, each between 30 and 60 minutes long.

Legs and arms transform into high achievers in 101 and honors classes, which define limbs with weights, resistance bands, and plyometrics, and the high-energy, Latin-influenced choreography of Zumba results in head-turning tone and eye-catching confidence boosts.

Chomp on chicken fingers ($4.25 for five with a small dipping sauce, $5.25 for a basket with fries and ranch sauce) or the beefy Bill's burger ($4.85) with a large side of fresh-cut french fries ($2.75) inside, where hanging televisions showcase sporting events and neon-signs light up the faces of ghost storytellers.
