As she struggled to surmount issues with her own weight, Boogie Box Fitness creator Dede Barbanti drew from her professional dance background, martial-arts training, and enthusiasm for exercise to pioneer the gym's rigorous yet fun workout routine. The calorie-flaming moves, which have been featured by Dr. Oz and publications such as Dance magazine, have since spawned BBX Kids and the more vigorous BBX Hardcore. Behind the regimens' popularity lie easy-to-follow steps culled from kickboxing, strength training, plyometrics, and Latin and hip-hop dance. In addition to motivating patrons to shimmy into fitter physiques, Dede channels her expertise as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist into the BBX Body membership site. Here, visitors can peruse custom menu plans, exercise tutorials, and life-coaching advice given by the world's smartest biceps.
Since Brad Wenneberg donned his first martial-arts uniform in 1971, it’s become his business attire as well as his athletic wear. After studying many forms and disciplines, Wenneberg opened his own school, American Marital Arts Academy, to teach Goju-Ryu to a new generation of students. That commitment continues through to the present, with more 10,000 students, including dozens of black belts, served over the past twenty years. Like many traditional martial artists, the instructors spend as much focus on mental discipline and self-confidence as on physical fortitude, skill, and splitting firewood for the winter. Shihan Wenneberg insists on a holistic approach, encouraging students to improve their social skills, perform better in school, and get into better shape to complement their training.
Owner Sunny Woodall's vision for Addiction Salon & Fitness Studio brings together beauty and fitness. Her team of dedicated beauticians and fitness instructors cultivate a friendly atmosphere as they lead exercisers through workout routines or touch up hair and faces.
Contemporary light fixtures illuminate crystal chandeliers around the salon's baroque interior. Clients can relax in a waiting area sheathed in purple damask wallpaper before heading to styling chairs, where beauticians transform locks into voluminous curls and makeup artists doll up faces with cosmetics and faux lashes.
In Addiction's fitness studio, clients tone muscles in piloxing and cardio barre sessions and take part in upbeat pole-dancing workouts, which are divided by skill level and ability to spin in perfect synchronization with the rotation of the earth. Groups of up to 15 can also join in the aerobic fun as they celebrate bachelorette parties and ladies' nights out with private lap-dancing workshops.
