What makes your business stand out?
Even though kettlebell fitness has been around since the early 1700s as training for the Russian military, it has just recently … become known as an extreme way to [combine] cardio and strength building in one. My business is a unique business at this time, due to the fact many people are utilizing kettlebells incorporated in their other workout routines in the gym but not many have any idea how to work out exclusively with kettlebells. I teach them that, and they are getting amazing results very rapidly!
What is your most popular offering?
The unlimited group fitness classes for individuals and couples [are] the most popular because [they] give my clients the most flexibility with their schedule and a huge discount. The other [popular option] is our private in-home lessons, [which] are great for the very busy people who cannot make it to our location. We go to them [for class], which is a 30-minute session.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
One of my customers came to me at the beginning of class, very hesitant and negative about thinking he will not get a good workout working exclusively with kettlebells. Ten minutes into the class, he bowed his head to me and said with a smile, "You have humbled me in a great way, I'm so glad I came." He is a very dedicated customer to this day!
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Helping people on a daily basis get healthier and reach or, even better, exceed their fitness goals. I truly love people and love what I do!

Melody Miller, the owner of TMT Spa, seeks to connect the body, mind, and spirit through massage. A therapist licensed by the state of Texas, she specializes in classic massages that combine popular techniques during a treatment customized to the client's needs. She performs therapeutic massage to relieve chronic pain, Swedish massage to help reduce stress and relieve pain, and hot-stone massage to invigorate key points on the body.
Licensed massage therapist Cassandra Dunlap has studied more than a dozen techniques in hopes of healing and rejuvenating her clients with integrative massage therapy. Rather than forcing each client to select a single massage style, such as reflexology or trigger-point therapy, she combines modalities based on individual ailments, recurring symptoms, or health goals. Before every session, Cassandra consults with clients to learn about any health issues—from chronic migraines to pulled muscles—and tailors her pressure and style to help ameliorate symptoms and reduce stress. House-made blends of aromatic oils inspire emotions and bolster positive moods; Pep Talk blends peppermint and sweet orange to bolster confidence, and Energize mixes lemon, rosemary, peppermint, and notes from the Rocky theme song. The spa's serene setting showcases a stone path winding through an indoor garden and an office decorated with ambient lighting and warm yellow walls.
True to its name, The Yellow Brick Salon announces itself to the outside world with a distinctive yellow facade. But for all its exterior beauty, it's what's inside that really counts. Here, you'll find seasoned stylists Vonda and Sandra giving their clients custom services that include anything from designer haircuts to vibrant highlights and hydrating conditioning treatments. They precede each appointment with a consultation, during which they evaluate the client's facial shape and get a feel for their personal style. That kind of care helps them create looks that leave their clients happy, but not so happy that they mess up their hair in celebration.
