Cassie Moore and Dana Harmon know that whether it's the height of midsummer heat or winter's deepest chill, calories still burn. They specifically design boot-camp classes to take advantage of current weather conditions, mixing classic workout elements such as pushups, lifts, and lunges with more fun elements such as relay races or pinning the tail on an actual donkey.
Dr. Justin Fogo's life has taken him from farms to clinics. Born and raised in the rural community of Superior, Nebraska, his natural drive inspired him to pursue higher studies. He supplemented his bachelor's degree by becoming a doctor of chiropractic, earning service awards, scholarships, and several high-fives in the process. Dr. Fogo continued his education by studying treatments for neuromusculoskeletal disorders and becoming a certified acupuncturist.
Today, Dr. Fogo brings his multifaceted experience to Chelsea Chiropractic. Inside private treatment rooms, he blends clinical chiropractic techniques with holistic medicinal principles to strengthen clients' nervous systems and foster natural healing. Dr. Fogo also teaches anatomy at Jefferson State Community College, where he shares information about the human body and expertly explains the lyrics to "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes."
Head trainer Lee Gravlee humbly founded Gravlee Fitness in his mother's garage 20 years ago and eventually expanded his business to a duo of Birmingham-area gyms staffed by nine trainers and fitness instructors, and was nominated for an award as one of the best gyms in northern Alabama in the process. The Mount Laurel hub’s legion of treadmills, ellipticals, and stairmasters torches calories before free weights forge new colonies of lean muscle. Upstairs, an expansive fitness studio hosts Zumba, Pilates, and yoga classes, Fit Train, TRX, and senior sessions, and thumb wars between patrons who wish to be the first to descend the stairs back to the first floor. TRX sessions levitate limbs in hanging straps to create body-weight resistance and toughen toning moves, and high-energy Zumba sessions torch calories with a Latin-inspired dance routine set to international hit tunes.
The 18 holes of Eagle Point Golf Club wind around tall forest groves and water hazards that come into play on six holes. Playing to a par of 71, the course requires golfers to steel their nerves as they size up their golf balls on the bermuda-grass fairways and execute a few key shots. These include the approach into a sand-surrounded green on the 7th hole and the tee shot entirely over water on the par 3 15th—as well as the final putt on the 18th hole, without which the round would never end.
