Q&A with Linda Yellin, Founder

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

Going back to when I started showing people the gems of Detroit as a hobby in 2001, we strive to take people behind the scenes to see and experience things that they may not discover on their own. We have long-standing close relationships that allow us access to places and people that will surprise and delight our tour guests. Our goal is for everyone to say "Wow! That's cool, I didn't know that was here!"

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Prepare yourself to experience, explore, and enjoy Detroit, as we help you to become more familiar with all the fascinating things the City has to offer.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

We warmly welcome our guests, treating them like family and friends. Our signature style is fun and engaging, and not too serious. We have a great time while we are learning and exploring. Even people who are long-time Detroit visitors, residents, and supporters learn new things on our tours, and have a fabulous time doing it. We have lots of repeat guests, and we conduct private tours for all kinds of groups and occasions.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Beyond Eastern Market tours, we offer all sorts of outings all around the City of Detroit, private and public, by foot, car and bus, emphasizing the food, fun, architecture, music, history, culture, art, and unique neighborhoods of our City. Customized tours are our specialty: for family groups, friends, co-workers, social clubs, seniors, school children, community recreation departments, social workers, and non-profit organizations.

Coaches of Renewal Body Bootcamp coaxes hard work, discipline, and buckets of sweat from fitness-seekers during her intense, full-body workouts. One of her specialties is TRX resistance training, which involves suspending students by their arms, legs, and torsos from straps and harnesses dangling from the ceiling. Exercises require participants to fight gravity and their own body weight to build muscle. Coaches sometimes combines TRX with Pilates core-strengthening work or a rigorous plyometric regimen, mixing up workout routines daily to maximize effectiveness. In addition to physical training, she supplies students with nutritional counseling that measures appropriate caloric intake by the day, creating balanced diets that supply ample energy without extra carbs, fats, or whatever compound butter is made of.

Aromas in the castle-like dining room immediately waft over diners when they visit Ollie's Lebanese Cuisine, which the Detroit News praised for authentic preparation techniques. “A baker is stationed at the bread oven visible from the dining room, constantly pulling out the puffy rounds of pita bread on a long-handled paddle. The warm bread, wrapped in sand-colored linen napkins, comes quickly to the tables to be dipped into an olive oil and za'atar dipping sauce.”

The rest of the menu also adheres to the region’s culinary traditions as chefs charbroil beef tenderloin, marinate swordfish, and repeatedly question lentils about what kind of plant they are exactly. Steam trickles from the dishes up toward the columns and faux-stone arches towering over the dining room, which includes mezzanine-level seating at the top of a pair of imposing stairways. The song of ice against glass floats from the full bar, where servers pair meals with carefully mixed cocktails and glasses of Lebanese wine. The restaurant transforms into more of a lounge on some weekend evenings to celebrate Middle Eastern culture with a lineup of live music and undulating belly dancers.

Light filters in through the towering windows of the expansive Infinity Fitness facility, brightening private training studios and exercise rooms filled with cardio and strength-training equipment. Instructors lead students towards weight loss, improved flexibility, and increased energy during group fitness classes such as yoga, Pilates, indoor cycling, and certain Les Mills classes. They also work to bolster muscle mass and Jesse Ventura impersonations during BodyPump training sessions, as well as improve tone and core strength during BodyFlow classes that cull moves from yoga, tai chi, and Pilates. Past classes and workout rooms, massage therapists dole out services in a private studio and clients soak their weary muscles in a healing isolation float salt tank. Additionally, kid-minded chaperones run an onsite childcare center where parents can drop off toddlers, children, and dogs they’ve taught to coo and gurgle convincingly.

After mastering traditional group fitness classes such as cardio kickboxing and Zumba, instructor Sandy Pierani hungered for more rhythm. To fan her passion, she spearheaded her own program, channeling both her years of dance experience and her love of West African music. Her five-part workout engages the entire body, set to the lively beats of a world-dance medley. She produced original music, recording percussive tracks with West African, West Indian, and Latin influences, specifically designed to complement dance moves while discouraging sloth impressions. Today, she leads guests of all backgrounds and builds through her energized maneuvers, fusing strength training, cardio conditioning, and stretching into one-hour bouts of boogying. She modifies the steps according to each student's comfort level, leading them through the dynamic warm-up to the breath-centric cooldown at their preferred pace.
