Tanning beds, meanwhile, allow guests to highlight contours and show off the hard work they've been doing on machines by Precor, Cybex, and Powertech, while a smoothie bar, salon, and massage studio await to refuel and refresh bodies post-workout.

When setting out to found Aquus, cofounders Julie Abraham, a slave to chronic pain for decades, and Barb Bergmans, the fitness coach who helped free her from it, envisioned a place where individuals could work out without feeling intimidated. They now put this plan in action along with help from a former professional ice-hockey player, who devises wellness plans geared toward individual needs. The team’s progressive approach to personal training includes three tiers—each focused on nutrition and exercise—that build upon the previous stage. In addition to personal training, they captain group classes ranging from Zumba to PiYo.

The varied workouts get underway in two studios. One has maple-wood floors for group classes, yoga, and personal training, and a second studio contains a clattering chorus of free weights. An infrared sauna and juice bar refresh patrons before they return to work or go back to ripping apart a rival’s phonebook collection.

As he revealed in an article on MLive, Garry Von Myhr thinks about cell-phone repair so much that he talks about it in his sleep. Von Myhr opened Genius Phone Repair with partners Jordan Notenbaum and Steve Barnes. The startup has blossomed out of parent company Note Tech Industries—a cell-phone repair business that Notenbaum was running out of his basement—into a successful organization with four convenient storefronts.

The entrepreneurs' speedy and affordable services were praised in a feature on WZZM 13 News. They specialize in repairing iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android mobile devices, and they stand behind their work with a 90-day warranty. The crew also purchases broken or functional devices for cash, and can recommend phone accessories such as protective cases or pasta-making attachments.
