Named a Top 100 Bike Retailer by Bicycle Retailer and Best Bike Shop of 2009, Gregg’s Cycle has been greasing hinges and tightening brakes in its shops, which provide bicycle maintenance and merchandise, for more than 70 years. During the minor tune-up, each cycle’s derailleurs, drive train, and bottom bracket all get a sprucing up. Expert mechanics tighten and actively listen to each loose bolt, no matter how crazy, while lubricating and adjusting wobbly hubs and headsets. Downhill trips will fly by faster than a family reunion with a brake adjustment and wheel-tension checkup.
From a six-month journey across the Indian subcontinent to graduating as one of the first yogis ever to be certified by Baptiste yoga creator, Baron Baptiste, there’s seldom been a dull moment in Lisa Black’s 12-year history with yoga. She even invented her own style of yogic practice called Shakti Vinyasa yoga in 2003. With the help of a fleet of instructors that she personally certified, she brings her wealth of experience to each class she teaches through Shakti Vinyasa Yoga’s four studio locations.
All four studio locations provide a venue for renowned yogis to visit and hold workshops while passing or levitating through town. The brightly lit, hardwood-floored rooms have hosted such experts as Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea, and Ana Forrest.

Pilates Plus's workouts combine traditional Pilates exercises with the principles of SPX fitness for a workout that keeps muscles burning until they hit failure, boosting strength gains, and speeding students toward full-body fitness. Each session on the studio’s schedule empowers students to work toward five fitness goals: muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio-respiratory endurance, flexibility, and body composition. The signature 40-minute workout routine, much like a life-or-death chess match, combines high intensity with slow, controlled movements. Students saddle up to the specialized Megaformer machine, a cousin of the traditional Pilates Reformer, which resists students' stretches, pushups, and lunges to provide a high-tension muscle workout without putting any stress on joints, the spine, or students' clockwork wind-up gear. After completing a class, Pilates Plus practitioners further benefit from excess postexercise oxygen consumption, which keeps the heart beating faster, calories burning, and nearby trees clocking overtime photosynthesis hours.
