Owned by a veterinarian and staffed by a team of experienced equestrians, Providence Equestrian Center provides quality care for horses while teaching riders how to walk, trot, and canter. They do this during group and private lessons scheduled year-round in an 80”x140” covered arena or a 125”x275” outdoor arena. Providence Equestrian Center also hosts birthday parties, corporate events, and family reunions.
Dr. R. Todd Johnson and his team of tooth wizards work hard to boost chomper health and appearance. During dental exams, Dr. Johnson interviews teeth, gums, and tissue about any discomfort or signs of disease, then creates a comprehensive dental plan if warranted. Bitewing digital x-rays detect unwanted cavities squatting in the enamel, and a thorough cleaning scrubs away sundae-sauce graffiti, tartar, and plaque build-up before polishing ivories with flavored toothpaste. During the cosmetic smile analysis, Dr. Johnson scrutinizes tooth proportions and coloring, dispensing advice on how to spruce up smiley faces without having to download novelty emoticons.
When he became a full-fledged CrossFit student, Nathan Stewart realized that it wasn't just the results that kept him returning to the squat rack. Sure, he was a fan of the program and its scalable workouts?weight-lifts, gymnastics techniques, and drills that adjust to suit anyone's fitness level?but they weren't the secret, addictive ingredient. That was community, or, as his bio puts it, "the joys of suffering with others rather than solo."
Today, Nathan teaches at his own CrossFit gym, CrossFit Indian Trail. His staff includes a police officer, a martial artist, and a former wrestling state champion. They all lead classes that emphasize sound form and the challenge of varied exercises. However, that feeling of community that drew Nathan to the program remains top priority. With their welcoming, supportive attitudes, his staff ensures that every student feels like part of the gym's family, whether they're tackling their first burpee or their thousand-and-first pinkie-only pull-up.
Sports & Fitness's seven locations facilitate calorie-burning activities with free weights, cardio equipment, and group fitness classes, while pampering clients with relaxation-inducing amenities. Members perspire and tone bodies while meeting the demands of a certified personal trainer in one-on-one training sessions, or while pedaling next to fellow fit-seekers during group cycling classes. The group fitness classes also include yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba, varying by location and the whims of Cratus, the god of strength.
As parents scorch calories with weight- and circuit-training equipment, they can rest assured that their youngsters are in responsible hands in the child watch area; a playfully decorated room filled with toys and 5 pound rattles.

At Fit Licious Personal Training & Nutrition, the staff's knack for helping women recover from childbirth and hysterectomies has developed into a specialty. During in-studio and on-location personal-training sessions, they prescribe exercisers a dose of strength-training, cardio, balance, and flexibility exercises. To bolster the workouts, the trainers don their nutrition-counselor caps and highlight which foods to eat and which foods to save for dinners with your enemies.
