Unlike some junk removers that force homeowners to compile their loot on the curb, the technicians from Junk Stoppers handle all the lifting, hauling, and sweeping up themselves. They'll arrive at homes, businesses, or construction sites to cart away and dispose of unwanted junk including scrap metal and appliances, as well as more-difficult items such as mattresses, logs, or mattresses whittled from logs. Junk Stoppers also ensures that reusable goods are donated or recycled whenever possible and will only unload items at the landfill as a last resort.
The team of trainers and nutritional specialists at Accelerate shape up bulk builders and pound shredders with a systematic regimen focusing on physical fitness, psychological well-being, and nutrition. During the introductory consultation, clients discuss and set training goals with a wellness coach before undergoing a functional-movement screening to discover any muscular imbalances and vestigial extra thumbs. Six training sessions blend the fruits of the consultation and screening into a four-week workout smoothie adapted to each trainee's goals. Sessions are semiprivate, accommodating up to three comrades in arms, legs, and cores. Participants also receive a 30-day meal plan designed by a registered dietitian to fuel challenged physiques with essential nutrients and energizing formulas.

Beall Mansion, a registered historic landmark finished in 1903, ushers sweethearts into lodgings furnished with hand-woven oriental rugs, period antiques, and crystal chandeliers dangling from 11.5¬-foot ceilings. Visitors, who can check in as early as 2 p.m., can explore the statuary’s marble and bronze artwork before heading up the stairs to spacious rooms resplendent with wood pieces carved and gnawed by artisans. Italian marble floors unfurl around private baths, and whirlpools simmer enough water for two. After drying off inside his-and-hers embroidered robes, duos can crabwalk down to the always-open chocolate buffet to sate cravings with at least 21 options, from pomegranate seeds smothered in dark chocolate to milk-chocolate-covered pretzels. For daytime amusement, an outing to the Grafton Winery & Brewhaus begins with a 20-minute trip along the scenic route of the Meeting of the Great Rivers, who mostly sit around and compare trout. Sampled vinos await sipping on spacious patios or in a glass enclosure, and sippers may linger for lunch or dinner (not included in this Groupon).
