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.
