CrossFit’s creator, Greg Glassman, sought to fuse the skills and training regimen of a gymnast, sprinter, weightlifter, and rower. At Concord CrossFit, a staff of CrossFit certified trainers continues this mission during rigorous workouts. With a chorus of kettlebells and jump ropes clattering in the background. Members hoist their body weight on pull-up bars, rope climbs, and gymnasts rings or pull pounds on the horizontal weight sled. Over the sounds intense workouts, instructors expound upon proper weightlifting form or explain where there is a gulch full of phonebooks to rip apart. Concord's staff also hosts CrossFit competitions, during which teams and individuals compete at events such as clean and jerk and kettlebell squat.

Julianna Freed developed a love of putting dinner on the table early on, helping her dad fish along the West Coast. Back at home in the kitchen, she watched her mother turn the catch into new dishes and fresh takes on familiar recipes. And when she visited her grandfather’s house, she got to wander among his garden’s vegetable plants and fruit trees. Though she spent years working as a middle-school teacher, this food-focused upbringing and the enthusiasm of independent producers at her local farmers’ market eventually spurred her to create Chef Julianna, which provides catering, cooking classes, and personal-chef services.
Julianna and her chefs adhere to strict standards of farm-to-table dining; in catering and cooking, they use local and sometimes organic meat, produce, and cheese harvested from local farmers’ markets. Before each private cooking class, Julianna’s chef-instructors meet with customers in their kitchen for a consultation, during which they survey the existing amenities and check for poltergeists hiding in the cabinets. At class time, they arrive with their own ingredients and cookware to coach students in common cooking methods and recipes for the customer’s chosen culinary style. Personal and private chefs carry the personal attention even further, planning meals, shopping for groceries, and cooking in customers’ preferred styles.
