Key West native Chef James helms The Chef 4 U, channeling 10 years of experience as a culinary teacher, personal chef, and caterer. During classes, the sounds that fill the kitchen grow gradually more confident as students learn to slice veggies, apply the proper bend of citric juices to ceviches, and squeeze salt from seawater for margaritas. The menus for classes and precooked meals alike are ripe with influences from Cuban, European, and Asian culinary traditions, which peep through in shredded pork, wine sauces, and miso glazes. While working in the kitchen to sate his own clients, Chef James flips through a rolodex of ingredients he went to school with in order to craft menus for vegetarian and gluten-free tastes.
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 coach is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues that tell participants it's time to move on to the next station. 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. Traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, so each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Because each workout warrior is at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles. The CurvesSmart system programs machines with personalized information, churning out move-by-move feedback to help clients meet and challenge personal fitness goals.
