The certified personal trainers at Personal Power Training travel to various fitness studios, clients’ homes, or outdoor locations on a mission to burn the fat off their trainees’ bodies. They call upon years of experience to find the right exercises to help clients see results as quickly as possible and get them motivated to continue until goals are met. In addition to losing weight and building muscle, they also focus on improving sports performances and boost quality of life by relieving pain carried in the back, neck, joints, and gills.
Before Jeremy Scott was named one of the top 50 hottest trainers in the country by Shape magazine, he was a collegiate basketball player and a trainer to college athletes, fitness competitors, and people looking to get fit without resorting to wrestling the neighbor's bobcat. The lifelong athlete has gone on to appear in Men's Fitness, Muscle & Fitness magazine, and AZ Foothills magazine, touting his philosophy of being the best one can be. But these aren't empty words from the workout guru—they're a call to action, which he backs up with high-intensity sessions and nutritional coaching. In doing so, he helps each client lose unwanted fat, chisel firm muscles, and eat nutritious foods to lead an overall healthy lifestyle.
Taking individual fitness goals into account, the trainers at Premier Fitness Systems empower all members to live a healthy, active, balanced lifestyle. They create a supportive, inviting environment and host classes that simultaneously improve mobility, strength, balance, core stability, and cardio health. Their high-intensity boot camps combine aerobic exercises with strength training to create full-body workouts, and their personal-training sessions help patrons develop proper form and technique. With sports-specific training, they help athletes elevate their game to the next level. And because fitness alone doesn't necessarily lead to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, the trainers also educate members about nutrition.

As a 23-year-old junior, Tom Hatten didn’t spend his evenings at the raucous parties or ice-cream socials associated with college life. Instead, he’d spend the waning hours of his evenings waiting by the dryer for the last batch of towels before collapsing into bed. In the morning, he would lug them to Mountainside Fitness, the gym he opened as a student that he has thrown all his energy into maintaining ever since.
Today, the humble 4,800-square-foot space has bloomed into nine gyms that average a sweeping 41,000 square feet. Tom’s vision of creating a friendly neighborhood gym that greets each guest with a warm towel underscores every decision he makes for the different locations, from the colorful kid-care spaces to the entertaining group fitness classes. Personal trainers plan regimens tailored to each client, helping them lose weight, build muscle, or target the muscles that will help build a better golf game. Clients can create their own routines with the help of cardio and weight machines, or explore the different amenities at each location, such as saunas, rock-climbing walls, and indoor basketball courts.
Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
