Though Executive Cleaners has three locations where patrons can drop off their dirty duds for dry cleaning, the company’s staffers also make laundry day even more convenient by traveling to clients’ homes and picking clothes up themselves. All customers need to do is leave their unwashed textiles at their door, and Executive Cleaners' team will whisk them away to one of its locations, where the staff will carefully inspect, clean, and press the items before dropping them back off. To ensure immaculate threads, Executive Cleaners encourages clients to leave a note with special instructions and even use the provided spot marker to point out stains or start games of tic-tac-toe. In addition to dry cleaning and laundry services, Executive Cleaners keeps entire ensembles in pristine condition with alterations, shoe repairs, wedding-gown preservation, and leather repairs.
A lot of fun can be had in a pool, whether you’re at a birthday party, competing in a swim meet, or practicing the underwater waltz. So Yoga of Dickson takes that premise and applies it to yoga, by offering aqua yoga as part of their roster of eight classes, which also includes Vinyasa flow and teen yoga. Whether wearing a swimsuit and using water as a resistance tool, or stepping onto a mat to execute traditional poses, students of all skill levels are welcome at their private and group classes. In addition to the single-topic classes, the studio's instructors teach beginning, intermediate, advanced, and mixed-level courses in the tranquil, 2,000-square-foot space.
Before joining forces, Jennifer Goldstein-Fritz and Alba Gonzalez-Nylander spent years pursuing their individual passions for video, honing their craft separately at renowned companies including FOX, E!, and CBS. Eager to venture out on their own, the two women joined their talents in 2010, co-founding AJ Media Services with the goal of combining their knowledge, with services that include bringing major-media quality techniques to home movies. In the years since filming their first promo, Jennifer and Alba have worked tirelessly to create polished, unique moving pictures via a host of services, from video production to duplication and transfer services. To create immersive digital experiences, AJ’s virtual tours throw viewers into smooth, 360-degree views of spaces, from the dining room of a recently opened restaurant to a new home’s finished basement and its organ-playing phantom.
While music lilts through the workout spaces of Seren Motus Fitness Studios, instructors guide limbs through the muscle-lengthening maneuvers of Suzanne Bowen's BarreAmped programs. Many of them have augmented their extensive dance, gymnastics, and fitness backgrounds with training from Suzanne Bowen herself—including the Franklin studio's Amy Weber, who has practiced BarreAmped since before it was branded and now trains fellow teachers. All of them specialize in the method's combination of dance, Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching, demonstrating how to leverage the body against a ballet barre for deeper holds. With small movements that shift each posture, they tighten traditional problem areas such as the seat, thighs, and water wings that have been stuck on arms since childhood. They also align each student's physique with hands-on corrections during class.
Though it's an airy indoor facility, The Crag Indoor Rock Climbing gym gleans its name from the jagged outdoor cliffs that climbing enthusiasts often strive to summit. Designed by a respected indoor rock-wall builder, The Crag safely recreates the excitement of inching up a punishing rock formation. However, not every wall at the facility is so challenging. It's frequently populated by skilled youth climbers and kids as young as 8. The younger climbers at The Crag often become adept through joining the youth climbing team, or by attending the gym's skill-building summer camp, where campers learn to scale walls by practicing belaying, top roping, and stealing Batman's utility belt. The facility's designer also kept adults and seasoned practitioners in mind by creating more than 100 routes that range in difficulty from beginner to more advanced.
