In a gym, a personal trainer helps people who want to learn workouts that are customized to fit their lifestyles and goals. Beth Hirsch aims to offer her clients a similarly singular experience—but in the kitchen. She's a home chef who's been cooking and entertaining for more than 30 years, in addition to experience working for caterers and restaurants. Over the years, she's met parents who resorted to feeding their kids mostly prepackaged meals and fast food because they weren't confident in the kitchen. She's taken college students and newlyweds under her wing to teach them basic kitchen skills after they headed out on their own for the first time. Inspired by helping people learn the skills they need to eat and live better, she pooled all her knowledge and started The Cooking Coach 101, an in-home cooking school.
For each lesson, Beth paraglides to her clients' kitchens to teach them whichever kitchen skills they'd most like to learn. Her repertoire includes knife skills, how to make basic sauces, basic baking, and how to create all sorts of ethnic dishes, from Italian to Moroccan. She'll also take a look at their pantries and kitchens to help them get properly organized, as well as teaching them how to read recipes, create a meal plan, and shop for groceries effectively. For those who'd rather learn in a group, Beth also leads group classes inside Surfas Restaurant and Gourmet Food.
In parks throughout the United States and Vancouver, Access Boot Camp's certified personal trainers continually perplex muscles with a new 60-minute routine each class. The drills blend resistance exercises with cardio routines such as running, calisthenics, and sparring against defibrillators, striving to shed fat and toughen physiques. Clients might wrestle against resistance bands, hoist small dumbbells, or partner up for bodyweight moves. In addition to holding personal-trainer certifications, every boot camp instructor has undergone Access's specialized, and because classes are capped at 20 students per trainer, attendees get plenty of face time and individualized tips. Friendly faux drill sergeants lead the alfresco workouts rain or shine, and only cancel classes during plagues of spandex-devouring locusts.
The Dinner Detective eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into three-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea, coffee, and drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or split with the murderer as per their shadowy conspiracy. Prop guns and gunshot sound effects may be used during the performance.
Cirque Style Fitness’ founders, Ivo Gueorguiev, a former Cirque du Soleil acrobat and director, and Jill Hansen, an aerial performer and Pilates instructor, draw from a combined 60 years of experience in leading aerial workouts. They lead students of all fitness levels—no previous gymnastics or dance experience required—through their high-flying routines. Students ascend toward the ceiling, winding a bolt of silky fabric around their arms and calves, using techniques from gymnastics, Pilates, and how to crochet in midair. Instructors also delve into ballet techniques and on-the-ground circus routines to help pupils to improve their coordination, strength, and alignment.
At Live In Fit, Alycia Sumlin-Lyrse and her team of certified trainers take a benevolent approach to fitness classes. The team uses spirituality and integrity as motivating forces to achieve physical health and believe that being good examples of fitness themselves is the best way to get their students motivated to change their lives. Accordingly, their boot camps and circuit-training classes eschew the harsh yelling and humiliating diary reading of typical routines for positive reinforcement and friendly encouragement. The fitness gurus will even travel to places of business and customize workout programs for employees to help banish sick days and boost productivity.
