Glowing neon-red-and-blue wall accents complement the staff members' bright attitudes at American Bodyworks gyms. They strive to make connections with each member, remembering their names and favorite prime numbers, as they guide them through rows of cardio equipment?each with an attached LCD TV screen?and strength-training machines affixed with illustrations on their use. Guests can work out in the daytime hours or swipe their membership key for nighttime access, pushing through free-weight reps while personal trainers sleep inside their resistance-band cocoons. Amenities such as childcare, tanning, and group classes round out the gym services at several American Bodyworks locations.
With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including quick in-and-out oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts.

Valvoline extends its care to cars of all makes and models as well as charitable organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and Children's Miracle Network.
Houston Family Transportation shuttles passengers across the Atlanta metro area in one of three rides: a Lincoln Town Car, flashy Infiniti G35 Coupe, or a Chrysler Town & Country van. The fleet’s licensed and insured drivers help globetrotters load and unload their luggage, and free them from the trouble of hailing a cab or stealing a horse en route to a fancy gala or other special event. An online reservation system makes booking a ride from Houston Family Transportation easy.
For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at DEKRA Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions inspections. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle?s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, DEKRA Emission Check?s umbrella company, DEKRA, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
Because they travel to vehicles parked at homes or offices, the detailers from Payless Automobile Detailing are able to hand wash, wax, and buff exteriors while cars stretch their tires on familiar pavement. The clean team also shampoos seats, repairs dents, refinishes paints, and installs window tints that enhance cars’ privacy and aesthetic value. When they’re not performing work by hand, the technicians call upon the high-pressure cleaning power of EPA-certified sprayers, which blast grit and grime off of sidewalks, driveways, decks, and other broad surfaces such as home exteriors and whale smiles.
