At What Are U Eating?, a trained nutritionist draws upon her wide knowledge of dietary theory and lifestyle coaching to help her clients reach optimal mental and physical health.

With an aim toward avoiding that moment when you stare at endless rows of weights and cardio equipment and don’t know where to begin, the passionate fitness experts at Studio Fit have assembled a roster of group fitness classes that can help clients achieve their goals.

Studio Fit regularly updates its schedule with new classes so that clients can always try something new and keep their bodies guessing.
A 25-year veteran of the fitness industry and star of the 8 Minute Abs workout series, Jaime Brenkus knows a thing or two about what it takes to get in shape. His Slim & Fit program doesn't rely on strange diets or fad workouts to help clients get in shape—instead, it's centered around good nutrition, modifying harmful behaviors, and finding time-efficient workouts. At locations across the country, slim coaches help clients stick to their customized nutrition plans, and fit trainers encourage them through cardiovascular training and body-sculpting workouts. The Glenn Mills location is owned by 10-time marathoner Mike Bullinger—who loves to research new exercises for clients—and his wife, Ann Bullinger—a Doctor of Pharmacy who helps people live healthier as a slim coach.
It isn't always easy to find time to workout. Anytime Fitness accommodates their members' diverse workout schedules by giving them access to fitness equipment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The facility is monitored day and night by a security system, and members can enter whenever they wish using their own key rather than answering three riddles posed by a troll living under the doormat. Once inside, they can enjoy the gym’s many amenities, from plate-loaded strength equipment and private showers to hydromassage tables and TV-equipped cardio machines. Members can also augment their workout regimens with group fitness classes and health plans designed by Anytime Fitness's expert staff.
With two locations, the Kirkwood Fitness and Racquetball Clubs allows guests of all fitness levels to work toward getting healthy with a range of amenities.

Personal trainers can work one-on-one with members to help customize a workout routine, or just supervise the overly confident free weights when they attempt to lift themselves.
