Anthony Russo, a first-generation Italian, spent years in the kitchens of his parents and other Italian chefs learning authentic Italian recipes for sauces and pastas. He eventually drew on his experience kneading New York?style pizza to open his own chain of coal-fired pizza franchises. Exposed bricks surround the burning embers at the core of the oven, which bakes thin-crust specialty pizzas, such as escargot with pesto, alongside heart-healthy pies with fresh spinach and artichokes. After sliding out golden-crusted pizzas and singed fairy-tale witches, chefs fill ovens with calzones and flatbreads. A full wine list supplies bold cabernets and crisp pinot grigios.

Trainer Ian Andracchio developed RowZone's unique blend of rowing exercises and full-body toning techniques to help students of all ages and abilities stave off the boredom and plateaus of other fitness regimens. During RZ Core workouts, instructors provide helpful pointers and encouragement to students as they shape up with body-toning ergometers.

Each structured session presents a total-body workout that incorporates rowing, resistance training, and fitness techniques that solidify cores and improve flexibility. Students learn proper rowing technique so that they can explode during the drive, stretch out during the reach, tighten the core during the finish, and flip through an issue of National Geographic during the recovery. Additionally, free-weight curls, crunches, lunges, and other rowing exercises work to provide an effective strength-endurance workout.

Results Personal Training enlists certified male and female trainers to piece together personalized fitness and nutrition plans that target time-specific fitness goals and allow for anytime onsite access. When paired with a client, each trainer crafts a program geared toward desired results—such as muscle gain or weight loss—and an ultimate end date, which can correspond with upcoming weddings or long-awaited preschool reunions. One-hour workout sessions then draw on an armory of free weights and Pilates balls to activate different muscle groups and prevent bodies from adapting to the routine. With trainers always on standby, clients can walk in on the hour to start a training program without an appointment and report to the center an unlimited number of times per week.

Before each patron’s first workout, an on-staff nutritionist outlines a healthy meal plan customized to his or her needs. Each menu includes the amount of calories that they should consume per meal and day, a list of foods that rev up metabolisms, and arguments to convince tomatoes that they are vegetables. Clients can visit their nutritionists at any point during their membership, and weekly analyses of their progress ensure that they are staying well on track to meet their health objectives.
