Between partner-based exercises and the inspirational commands of a certified personal trainer, community is a constant motivator during EmpowerFIT’s boot-camp classes. The savvy team of fitness gurus switch up the maneuvers of each daily class to help keep students engaged, and high- and low-impact variations of each move scale to the abilities of each student. The result is a full-body workout that relies on functional movements such as jumping, running, pushing, pulling, and bopping it.
To the art designers at S.F. Framing, picture frames should do more than simply encase art, photos, and posters. They believe they should complement decor as well. At S.F. Framing, more than 1,200 mouldings suit all sorts of aesthetic styles, from sleek, metal frames for posters to wood frames embossed with intricate gold leafing for traditional art prints and ancestor's mug shots. They also believe that frames should offer protection and draw from more than 40 years of shared experience as they armor precious objects in museum-quality frames. This archival process uses premium materials, including acid-free paper, UV-blocking glass, and framing-grade acrylic, maintaining items in mint condition for years of display. As a bonus, some of the brands on hand have earned the approval of the Forest Stewardship Council, and some actively support reforestation programs or use reclaimed wood.

Dedicated to customer satisfaction, they stand behind their cleaning services with a written guarantee.
After their house is packed up, the family relaxes while Sacramento Movers’ team rolls in to haul all items into its truck. As the job progresses, the crew places padding on furniture and disassembles all tables and robot butlers, reassembling them at the new residence. As the movers pack and transport everything for residential moves, they strive for transparency in their service fees, charging hourly for most tasks and offering free use of wardrobe boxes during the move. Free basic cargo insurance also comes with each move, a requirement by California law.
The crew puts that same effort into moving commercial businesses to new locations. With weekday, weekend, and evening hours available 24 hours a day every day, the crew not only moves items but can also be charged with boxing up computer equipment and setting up at the new office by the next day. Sacramento Movers puts in this kind of attention to detail to help businesses continue running without losing work hours or valuable red staplers.
Casablanca Market brings its collection of leather ottomans, hand-painted tables, Berber pillows, intricate mirrors, Moroccan tea glasses and tagines as they arrive stateside straight from the hands of Moroccan artisans, many of whom learned their skills as a family tradition. Hand-painted chairs and hand-woven carpets enliven rooms with vibrant colors and boast unique designs, unlike template rugs sewn by unimaginative robots. Shoppers can further their knowledge of Moroccan culture by attending the shop's cooking classes, which feature traditional recipes and ingredients. The market follows fair-trade practices to ensure artisans receive good compensation for their work and have their pay in hand before their goods ship overseas.
