Delaware Fit Factory is unlike any factory you've seen. For starters, there's no heavy machinery to take up space on the floor. The studio's instructors instead use the expansive space to their advantage, leading CrossFit and krav maga classes that focus respectively on functional fitness and real-world self-defense skills. Though the programs themselves don't change, the intensity of the workouts is individually scaled and the actual exercises vary constantly. Children looking to build the muscles necessary to tear through thick stacks of homework can check out the KidFit class, which involves fun activities such as running, jumping, and throwing.
Doug Schwaberow was sick of the personal-training industry—the repetitive exercise programs, the competition between trainers, and the outdated, even dangerous techniques he saw some trainers using. So he decided to open Achieve Fitness as a better alternative for fitness and sports conditioning. He took a hands-on approach to designing each program, from two types of boot-camp classes to semiprivate fitness sessions. He and his team also lead Sports Performance training for kids from third grade to high school, helping them become stronger, more agile, and less prone to injuries.
It’s no surprise that as a mother of five, a Cub Scouts den leader, and a tutor to autistic children, Tender Touch Farm instructor Lisa Gilliam has a way with children. She’s been sharing her passion for riding with youngsters for more than a decade, encouraging them to grow and learn through equestrian experiences such as camps and lessons. Within one-hour lessons, she teaches kids how to maintain their balance and communicate with the horse without the use of words or Morse code messages nudged into their sides. After lessons, kids also get exposure to the nonriding components of horse care, such as grooming and anatomy.
