Armed with 21 years of training in various athletic disciplines and multiple certifications through organizations such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Jason Yun helps clients to mow down calories. With his assistant coaches Rick Locke, Bob Benden, and Bob Carleton, he bolsters the physical prowess and mental focus of students during multi-week boot camps. In addition to the camp, he teaches advanced classes such as Kettlebell Khaos or the blazingly fast-paced YunFit. In the latter, Yun shouts out a series of cardio and strength-training commands such as ?pushup,? ?squat,? or ?go home and make a wheatgrass smoothie.?
At Old Skool Fight Sports and Fitness, the coaching team focuses on boxing. In fact, head coach Rob Pilger is a boxer himself?he has won three Golden Gloves championships and fought professionally. Nowadays, though, he and his team helm boxing workouts for all levels. Their boot camps, for instance, focus on skills more than fighting in the ring, with exercises like jump roping, burpees, and footwork drills. They also lead more advanced training sessions for competitive boxers, along with youth boxing workouts and mixed-martial-arts sessions.
The menu at Tadka features dishes of double-fried tofu and hot-garlic beef point to Sichuan influence, while tomato-chili paneer and curried noodles brim with Indian spices.

Once ready, servers ferry the feasts to tables in a red and mustard-yellow dining room adorned with waterfalls, Asian accents, and black stalks of bamboo.

As a designer, Rian Neil draws on not only his study of visual communication and interactive media design, but also on the philosophy of a mentor he has never met: Frank Lloyd Wright. Neil strives to follow the philosophy behind Wright’s Fallingwater home, which fused aesthetics with a respect for the existing landscape. With this in mind, Neil tailors each of his projects to his client’s unique situation or “landscape,” whether he is crafting a website, branding a product, or shooting a family portrait. Neil’s photography endeavors extend beyond family portraiture; however, he can also snap shots of newborns, capture newlyweds’ bonds, and ply photos with special effects to create antique-style Fauxlaroids, rather than the original antique-style photo: a good cave painting.
