If motivating people is the job of a personal trainer, Rose Galvin leads by example. In the last 20 years, she’s earned her ACE certification, become a cancer-education specialist, and honed a repertoire of fitness tools and techniques including Balancepoint Pilates, Resist-A-Ball, and Urban Rebound. Her latest project was the founding of Body Science Personal Training, where she and a team of NCCA-accredited personal trainers help clients shape their bodies into svelte parallelograms during solo or partnered workouts. With a new studio expected to open November 10, 2012, clients will soon be able to tone their bodies in a bright and polished corner studio in Braintree Square, which features top-of-the-line equipment and an updated ab-equipment studio. Opening day for this location includes an open house from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., and gives clients an opportunity to visit the new space and meet the personal trainers.
Owner Jim Veneto and his team of expert stonemasons work closely with clients to dream up custom landscaping and decorative architectural structures crafted from natural stone. Asphalt, concrete, and paving stones lay out patios and walkways, and natural-stone walls channel the property lines constructed by early farmers attempting to demarcate Capture the Flag boundaries. The experts can erect outdoor kitchens and brick pizza ovens for upscale outdoor dining and natural-looking stone waterfalls to transport homeowners into fantasies of birds of paradise flitting about preparing a backyard soiree. Also specializing in maintaining and repairing clients' stone-crafted structures, the stonemasons can reconstruct brick walkways, stairs, and chimneys.
The seasoned contractors at Oceanside Roofing and Siding have been building and repairing area roofs for more than two generations. Teams of skilled experts nimbly ascend the sides of homes to plug holes, replace loose shingles, or perform complete rebuilds of roofing and vinyl siding.

At our bathroom remodeling division we compete directly with Glue On Liner Companies. Our concept is we don't glue liners over old bath tubs, we rip out your old tub and walls and install a completely new bath tub and surround by the industry leader Kohler Sterling. And we do it for far less than our competitors.
Lapels Dry Cleaning's professional staff purifies prized fabrics with environmentally friendly practices that have earned the cleaners certification as an EnviroStars business. Prices vary from location to location, but customers can drop off sullied sweaters ($6.25+), pants ($6.35+), two-piece suits ($13.45+), or down comforters ($30+) for a cleansing encounter with an odorless, nontoxic solvent. As a further commitment to eco-friendly commerce, Lapels recycles all hangers and bags, and uses only low-energy LED signage rather than coal-powered billboards or easily weaponized nuclear marquees.
With 16 years of experience under their trowel-holding belts, The Secret Gardeners confidently craft lush lawn landscapes. To start the design process, designers first ferret out the client's most deeply repressed gardening desires during a free initial consultation, when they'll evaluate the site, take photos, and commence relocation negotiations with the elf community living on the projected site of a new patio. Then after two–three weeks, they'll return to present a working design plan that arranges plantings, patios, and pergolas into a customized backyard Shangri-la. Diagrams in hand (a $60 average value), clients can argue the finer points of shrub placement with their designer, who will return to the site after the initial consultation to hand-deliver the design (a $50 average value for travel).
