Founder Linda Taix has one mission: to help clients achieve the ultimate positive change in body, health, and spirit––without half- hearted crunches. Employing a team of certified personal trainers and former military personnel, Linda's civilian-style fitness boot camp was featured on Good Morning America. Linda modeled her six-week boot-camp sessions after a real military boot camp, with an enlistment phase to gauge fitness levels and one- hour classes that blend military exercise drills, resistance training, and plyometrics with cardio activities such as obstacle courses and double-dutch jump-rope contests against local youths.
Cutting out traditional boot-camp yelling and huffing, the team fosters a supportive and motivating environment for students of all skill levels. Furthermore, Extreme employs nutritionist and fourth-degree black belt Jake Nelson to guide clients with diet advice and personal consultations on how best to break a board with a honey-glazed ham.
Core Fusion Fitness models its facility after a day spa, from its chic aesthetic to its mix of private and shared spaces. Instead of manicure stations and private treatment rooms, however, there’s a room with Pilates machines, a space for stationary bikes, an open gym area with punching bags and a boxing ring, and a spacious studio with high ceilings to facilitate dumbbell juggling. Busying themselves in these areas are the facility’s fitness instructors, who schedule a multitude of group classes. They lead traditional yoga, Zumba, boot camp, and cycling along with more fight-focused sessions, such as kickboxing and muay thai.
With its unexpected pairing of services, Shear Rhythm Hair Salon & Dance Studio offers a host of fun events and comprehensive beauty regimens. Dance genres such as ballet, jazz, and Zumba dominate the class schedule. Stylists cut, color, and retexture hair, and bridal packages make over entire wedding parties. Special events include Wine and Dessert Nights, when clients are encouraged to bring a bottle and a friend to the styling stations.
