The certified personal trainers at EPOC Fitness care about one thing: measureable results for all of their clients.

Personal-training mavens Rob Hatch and Rhonda Swaney mold their clients into versions of their chiseled selves with 60-minute Buns & Abs Fitness sessions. During classes, these seasoned trainers will shepherd students through a fitness regimen designed to bolster muscles and evict excess fat cells taking up space on their protoplasmic couch. They'll target the lower body with an arsenal of high-intensity interval training and strength exercises designed to define glutes, abs, and legs much more effectively than dictionary-themed calisthenics.
Sports Barn welcomes students of all skill levels and interests with an array of classes that includes gentle, intensive, and restorative yoga styles. The studio’s robust schedule of sessions helmed by dedicated instructors, focus largely on flow sessions that synchronize gracefully cascading transitions with measured breaths to create an invigorating practice. Power yoga engages limbs with vigorous dynamism as it bolsters strength, stamina, and high-fiving ability. Yin yoga draws thoughts inward with a centering sequence of poses that helps loosen uptight connective tissues with deeply held stretches as students learn to focus on improving their range of motion. Although the studios cushion postures with the necessary yoga mats and props, instructors advise students to purchase their own, as chakras can become territorial over particularly good equipment.
Since opening Nutrition World in 1979, founder Ed Jones has fostered healthy mastication with an expansive inventory of natural, organic, and gluten-free foodstuffs. As shoppers peruse the aisles, nutrition-savvy store clerks stand by to answer inquiries and suggest healthy alternatives to junk food such as chips or notoriously indulgent Cracker Jack prizes. Shelves sport boxes of DeBoles gluten-free pasta ($3.89), and refrigerators eschew lactose with cartons of sunflower, coconut, hemp, and almond milk ($2.99+). Shoppers can scarf down the protein of an OhYeah! chocolate-caramel bar ($2.49) or work on their Popeye impressions by downing Amy's spinach pizza ($7.99).
Owner Heather Simmons Alexander applies her 11 years of certified experience to personally educate students about the fitness-boosting art of Pilates. Designed to strengthen the body and increase flexibility, Pilates consists of a series of strengthening movements and low-impact resistance exercises. During 55-minute individual lessons available Monday–Friday by appointment, students tighten cores while keeping an astute, corrective eye on form. Since Pilates focuses on control and body-weight exercises, impeccable form helps students build muscle and increase their fitness with swifter celerity. Individual lessons are built to bestow individuals with a sturdy foundation of skills before they graduate to one of Heather’s semi-private mat classes, in which they may continue to build balance, flexibility, and strength with up to six others.
