Although the top priority at Evolutionary Sports is to help others get into shape, the facility aims far beyond that by creating an environment that makes every guest, member, and first-time exerciser feel part of something bigger. To accomplish its mission, the business offers group workouts, personal training, and a full slate of classes at two different facilities. Those classes range from boot camp and yoga to karate and cross training, which fuses kickboxing techniques, cardio drills, and weight training into one intense session.
In the past few years, many commuters have switched to a more environmentally friendly style of getting around. Bicycles zip down streets quickly and make it easy to run an errand or go out without needing to hunt down a parking spot. To help people fuel their passion for two-wheeled motion, Dash Bicycle sells, services, and rents bikes to people across the community to cyclists of all levels of experience. Though the shop specializes in bikes for urban cyclists and commuters, it also stocks a range equipment from fixed-gear track bikes to mountain bikes in a variety of brands, including Bianchi, Pake, and Fyxation.
The Caster family's bike centers have been treating two-wheelers since 1919, and recently received Best of Rhode Island honors from the editors of Rhode Island Monthly. The shop's basic tune-up begins with a safety check and frame wipe-down followed by an inspection designed to determine vintage and appellation. Experts skilled in two-wheelism then adjust bearings, tinker with wheel tension, inspect and lube the drive train, and align the brakes to enable unfettered pumping power.
The Cardio Corner's nine certified instructors propel exercisers toward fitness goals during classes teeming with kickboxing moves and other dynamic methods of sculpting the physique. During cycling classes, they help up to 12 stationary riders envision the towering hills, freeing descents, and detours through enemies' flower gardens that are fundamental to an outdoor bicycle ride. Filled with deep breaths and slow, graceful poses, all-levels yoga classes provide a calming alternative to cardio classes' vigorous tempos.
The expert caretakers at Barney's Bicycle refurbish bedraggled bikes with a comprehensive, tires-to-handlebars tune-up. With the surgical precision of Doogie Howser, friendly staffers recalibrate wheels to cure listing bikes, adjust brakes and derailleurs, check the bearings, and test out tire pressure. Up-tuners also perform holistic restorations including bicycle tightening and adjustment, general lubrication, and cleansing frames of common contaminants such as gravel dust, mud, and earthworm stowaways. Groupon–holding cyclists can also receive a 10% discount on all over-the-counter two-wheeler essentials, such as gimmick horns and handlebar-mounted convection ovens.
