Chas DeVetter, founder of DeVetter Fitness, always enjoyed helping people get in shape, so becoming a personal trainer was a natural choice for him. He knows that each client is unique, and they might require a different form of motivation, exercise, and nutrition plan to really get results. He and his trainers lead boot-camp classes at regular locations, so people can enjoy the motivational benefits of a group workout. They also offer semi-private and one-on-one training for all ages and fitness level, traveling to meet clients wherever they're most comfortable: at home, the country club, or their favorite gym. No matter which format the training takes, the trainers adhere to the same philosophy. "Life is a marathon, not a sprint," they say. This means that they encourage people to find effective, sustainable activities and to suck energy gel out of packets whenever possible.
Across four decades and three generations, the Hoenselaar family has prepared its signature bone-in hams the same way—marinating them in secret spices and smoking them at length over a special blend of hardwood chips. At each of HoneyBaked Ham Co.'s 400 locations, specialized machinery invented by founder Harry J. Hoenselaar himself carves each haunch into a perfect, thin-cut spiral. Slices then fill sandwiches such as the croissant-swaddled Ham Classic, or join other meats on the likes of the toasted Ham & Turkey Bella, which hoists swiss cheese, banana peppers, and balsamic vinaigrette between cibatta bread. The correlation between pork consumption and out-of-control parties has not slipped past the notice of the HoneyBaked chefs, who also offer catering platters and party trays for 10 or more people.
