Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We provide a supportive community, nurturing and knowledgeable instructors, and a clean and safe space to practice in. We meet people where they are, and are not necessarily results-oriented, rather we are more focused on encouraging healthy habits and lifestyles. Our motto is "Be Your Cure": we promote a proactive approach, personal responsibility, and ownership of your health and well being.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
The mistake IS trying to do it on their own. It's important to have support whether it's the professional support of teachers or being in a community of like-minded individuals to help motivate and keep you encouraged.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are a total experience and not just an exercise gym. You will meet positive people that are not judgmental. We have a great community that stands on a foundation of caring and knowledgeable instructors and a desire to change lives for the better, forever. The yoga we provide is unique: the room is heated to 105º and 40% humidity, generally a little warmer then your average "hot" yoga studio. The style of yoga offered comes from the Ghosh lineage of Hatha yoga. ... Kat Kelley-Chung, director of BYC, brings in her own extensive 14 years of teaching experience to these classes that includes training in the Iyengar and Anusara styles of yoga.

The showroom at Vespa of Philadelphia is a scooter enthusiast's dream. Classic and modern Vespa models sit alongside Piaggio scooters and motorbikes. Some are for rent. Some are for sale.

Here, techs change oil, make repairs, and prep scooters for winter.
