Steven Pierce, founder of RS Health & Fitness, doesn't limit his exercises to the gym. He sees the big picture and prioritizes wellness education on a large scale within the Detroit community. Steven's efforts have taken him to the airwaves as a featured expert on Fox 2 News, to Charter Health High School as a physical fitness educator, and to businesses as a seminar leader. Even if his clients are unable to meet with him, Steven will provide them with plans for at-home and travel workouts, such as bench-pressing a flight attendant.
RS Health & Fitness remains his base of operations, however. Here, Steven and his team of personal trainers provide customized exercise plans for anyone from professional athletes to first-time gym-goers. Each of their personal-training programs takes a comprehensive approach—they include fitness evaluations, nutritional consultations, and check-ins every 30 days that monitor progress. The instructors also host boot-camp classes for groups, accommodating all skill levels with fast-paced kickboxing drills and sandbell lifts.
At a juice and smoothie bar located just inside the Pure BDY fitness-training studio, baristas blend fresh concoctions inspired by owner Robyn Milewski’s specialty juice cleanses. Fresh fruits and vegetables meld into invigorating purees with names such as Lean Green—kale, spinach, parsley, and apple—and Good Morning—orange, carrot, and ginger. Using everything from almond milk to oatmeal, smoothies either make sweet vegan-friendly snacks or incorporate pack protein-rich formulas designed for sustaining the body before or after workouts. In either case, customers can always design their own recipes for juices or smoothies, tinkering with Pure BDY's ingredients to find just the right thing to fill the truck's radiator.
The muscular trainers that lead the variety of fitness programs at TV Fitness?Ryan and Earl Carruthers?know that every person who walks through their doors does so with their own set of challenges and goals. To help accommodate guests of all fitness levels, the duo offers a wide lineup of fitness programs at their gym. Most of their programs focus on interval training, using the high intensity moves to spike the metabolism, make uncomfortable fat cells cry sweat, and help guests burn fat for hours after exercising.

With its open floor plan, graffiti-style artwork painted on the walls, and aerial rigs hanging from the ceiling, it's clear that Pulse Fitness Training is no ordinary gym. Clients can find all the classic cardio and strenth-training equipment they'd see in a traditional fitness center, but can also work out with functional equipment such as tractor tires and battle ropes out on the floor. Aerial silks and hoops can be climbed to build upper body strength or to finally impress old elementary gym coaches. There's also a host of small group fitness classes led by certified instructors, ranging from TRX training to yoga and cardio barre sessions. After the workout, gym goers can head over to Pulse's nutritional shake bar, where a staff member will whip up a fresh protein shake to help replace burned energy.
