Though she had been an avid rider since she was a little girl, Amy Smith of Willow Run Farm didn’t find her true calling as an equestrian until she turned 20. It was at this age that she began a job at a rehabilitation center, where she took a hands-on role in caring for horses in need and nursing them back to health. Amy quickly adopted a holistic approach to horsemanship, a passion that continues to enrich her career. Today, Amy teaches her students the whole spectrum of caring for horses, everything from grooming to horse health and safety—as opposed to focusing solely on riding techniques or hair-spraying the horse’s mane into a mohawk. Above all, Amy instills responsibility, self-confidence, and a sense of accomplishment in each of her riders.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
