"Running is such a beautiful metaphor for life,” Back on My Feet founder Anne Mahlum says on her organization’s website. “Life is about choosing different roads and our program teaches the importance of choosing roads filled with opportunity, hope and happiness.” Anna’s understanding of life and running intertwined and strengthened during her own daily runs. Every morning she would follow the same route, but despite her conditioning it began to take her longer and longer. This was because her route took her past a homeless shelter, and what began as jogging past without breaking stride turned into waving at familiar faces and then stopping to talk. Today, Back on My Feet is dedicated to the empowerment and self-sufficiency of underserved people. Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. Through running, people experiencing homelessness gain community, self-esteem, and confidence alongside other people of all backgrounds. Anna’s efforts have led to a running club in Philadelphia and have since expanded to the Baltimore and Washington DC areas. The organization funds its cause by hosting events and races throughout the year, including various 5Ks, half-marathons, and The AT&T Sneaks Come Out at Night 15K & 3x5K Relay.

Licensed acupuncturist Karen S. Oliva embraces toyo hari acupuncture, first developed by blind practitioners in the 1930s. Nicknamed gentle acupuncture, toyo hari employs very subtle palpations to release blockages in the chi—the body's vital energy—that can lead to pain, disease, and March Madness. Karen believes in supplementing acupuncture with holistic therapies such as herbs and facial rejuvenation therapy, which boosts collagen and elasticity in worn-out mugs.

At CrossFit Harbor East, participants row, dead-lift, squat, and sprint their way to better bodies and improved overall health. High-intensity, varied, functional movements are the name of the game when it comes to workout programming, with each day consisting of a different assortment of exercises that snuff out weakness and help individuals perform better in everyday life experiences, such as dead-lifting their backlog of telephone books. Exercisers pump out reps on pull-up bars, ropes, rings, kettle bells, and other apparatuses side-by-side with their classmates, but they'll never touch weight machines, which fly in the face of the CrossFit ethos of self-sufficiency.

Just as each day of exercise is an eclectic assortment of routines, the certified coaching staff at CrossFit Harbor East represents a similarly wide spectrum of backgrounds and expertise. Former collegiate and pro athletes, CrossFit games competitors, and strength and conditioning experts fill its ranks, bringing a fresh perspective and a positive attitude to the gym every day. The gym was recently recognized by Spot Me Girl as one the "Top 15 CrossFit Gyms In America."

The Works Fun Center opened its doors to provide youngsters with a fun, safe place to let off steam, have a good time, and quite simply, act their age. Inside the entertainment emporium, kids unwind while learning the fine art of tag-team parallel parking while behind the wheel of a bumper car. They can also rack up high scores in an arcade or tumble through the colorful tunnels and tubes of the indoor playground. But, while the focus is on kids, The Works makes sure to help out adults, too, specifically with party-planning packages that include pizza and decorations.
