Founder Patrick Willard keeps the gym open to everyone and leads a team of nationally certified fitness experts to teach everything from Zumba to martial arts and yoga. Trainers motivate clients during small-group boot camps, swift 30-minute circuit-training classes, or one-on-one training sessions. Nutrition seminars supplement the sweating by preventing budding bodybuilders from undermining their gains by falling prey to unhealthy diets of cement sandwiches.
Green Pro Lawn Care’s green-thumbed staff keeps grass vibrantly verdant with core-aeration services intended to reduce soil compaction and naturally rejuvenate lawn health. A layer of dead roots and lawn debris can build up between a lawn’s grass and soil if not regularly maintained. This layer, known as thatch, can harbor pests and complicate plant growth, and core aeration ($32/1,000 sq. ft.) seeks to naturally break down thatch without damaging any dirt-based frescoes beneath the surface. Armed with professional equipment, trained professionals extract small plugs of soil and deposit them on the lawn’s surface, unleashing ravenous hordes of beneficial microbes that gorge themselves on the topsoil’s growth-inhibiting buffet of thatch. Treatments can help preserve a yard’s overall health, and Green Pro Lawn Care particularly recommends this service for homes with bermuda and zoysia grasses or AstroTurf carpeting.
Scan the menu with precision before zeroing in on a taste-bud-blaster such as Ghassan’s signature hot sub—the steak and cheese ($4.99 for six-inch, $5.69 for eight-inch), topped with grilled steak and melted provolone and served with chips and a pickle. Diners can expand appetite appeasing by getting either size of the sub with a platter of fries and a salad ($7.29 for six-inch, $7.79 for eight-inch). Treat your cardiopulmonary system to a tasty, beneficial treat with a heart-healthy chicken kebab platter ($6.49), opting for the Lebanese salad instead of the fries in the platter to give your bloodpump an extra high-five, or take in a traditionally delectable gyro ($5.99 for sandwich, $7.89 for platter), with grilled beef and lamb slices on a grilled pita with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and homemade cucumber sauce. Herbivoyeurs can hit the jackpot with hummus on a pita sandwich ($5.29 sandwich, $7.49 platter) or combine all the veggie options with the vegetarian plate ($7.49), which features falafel, hummus, salad, pita bread, and a pickle.
