For generations, the Anderson family has cleaned homes around the east side of Cincinnati, where they live. To this day, the owner personally helps clean each house, overseeing a team of licensed, insured, and bonded techs. As the team cleans, they sanitize bathrooms, scrub kitchen surfaces, and vacuum carpets. Before leaving, workers remove trash bags and wipe down walls and windows, removing fingerprints or floor-to-ceiling spirals of bacon grease.

Q&A with Brian Calkins, President/Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We believe that fitness should be fun and inspiring. We believe that every woman should be healthy and fit, full of energy and enthusiasm for life, and look and feel fantastic! We believe that in order to get fit and healthy, all you have to do is ask your body to do just a little bit more than what it?s accustomed to doing, regardless of your current shape, size, age or ability. Adventure Boot Camp provides workouts that foster fun, support, community, accountability, inspiration, and teaches women how to look, feel, and perform their best in life.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

I do not. In fact, I think in the context of today?s ?box? gyms, pushing intensity beyond capability, is completely stupid and entirely unnecessary. Does that mean exercise is easy? Of course not. Exercise must be smart in that it meets the participant at her level, and it progresses at her pace, based on her unique characteristics. Because the opposite is true too. The same ole routine, day in and day out, leads to stagnation, boredom, and no results. There?s a fine balance between exercise that is too hard, and workouts that are too easy in that they are a waste of time. Adventure Boot Camp has perfected that balance, we call the sweet spot in fitness.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?

Clients come to our facility for workouts that are fun. They come to our facility for leading edge education on fitness, health, and nutrition. And they build lifetime relationships within our community.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

My approach to fitness has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, and I have been honored as one of the nation?s top 50 personal trainers by the American Association of Personal Trainers. I have been a local media consultant in the area of health and fitness for the past 8 years.

Queen City Cookies, baked in Cincinnati. Kinkead Ridge wines from Ripley. Riehle’s Select colorful popcorns from Southern Indiana. The shelves at Keegan’s Specialty Seafood Market read like an atlas of the region. The range of seafood, on the other hand, travels from around the world each day, the fresh tubs of ice brimming with sunset-hued king crab legs and live oysters. With Carabello Coffee and locally crafted wines from Kinkead Ridge filling the shop with earthy aromas and revelry, chefs in the kitchen craft a host of prepared foods. There, clams simmer in a creamy chowder base, a smoker cooks tuna belly and mahi mahi at low temperatures, and whisks dream of being used as anything other than an imaginary microphone.

Assembled in an old schoolhouse, Clough Crossings populates its menu with bites to satisfy seafaring stomachs and carnivorous canines. Nosh on fish tacos ($10.95), bacon-encrusted scallops ($13.95), citrus salmon salad ($15.95), or the grilled-chicken pita sandwich ($9.95) while your eyes ogle the local historical photographs. Share the grilled wings with a date or body double ($7.95), or salivate over standout patron favorites such as the pan-roasted chicken ($16.95) or the caramelized salmon resting on a bed of sweet-potato mash, covered with julienne vegetables and a honey-merlot glaze, each served with a choice of salad or soup ($18.95). Pair amiable eats with a glass of wine ($6.50–$8.75) or saddle up to the bar, stocked with enough imported, domestic, and craft brews to cultivate minds, spirits, or a giant briefcase full of alcoholic dissertations. During the summer, diners can enjoy meals amid trees, flower gardens, and fresh breezes on Clough Crossings' scenic patio.
