Q&A with Marcie Callan, Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Because we're fun. Some yoga studios take themselves way too seriously and intimidate people. We're open, fun, welcoming, and warm.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

No. Although it's sometimes fun to workout so hard you can't walk the next day, it's a silly thing to do to your body on a routine basis. All of our classes are challenging and appropriate for all fitness levels.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?

We sell Hard Tail clothing?which is made in the US?and local, handmade products, such as soy candles, in our boutique.

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

Our most popular class is the Yoga on the Go class we offer from 12:05?12:55 p.m. Downtown workers love it because they can get some yoga in the middle of their work day.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

When Annie Federoff played volleyball in college, she realized she wasn't just making it through the workouts?she was pushing her teammates, too. She recognized her own ability to motivate others and founded her own personal-training business after graduation. In her 13 O'Clock Adventure Boot Camp she helps even more people live healthier lives. She leads campers through four-week sessions that get them into shape with a constantly varied cycle of activities, such as Pilates, weight training, and obstacle courses. On any given day, she might lead groups through jumping rope and doing yoga or taking off for a hike. Annie ensures that her students of all ability levels can safely do each exercise but still be challenged by the workout. As her athletes do functional-training and core-conditioning exercises, Annie watches to make sure everyone is using proper form to avoid injury and get the most out of each exercise.

Annie called the camps 13 O'Clock to refer to the mythical time when you plan to do something, but never actually get around to it. She helps her campers finally find time to get in shape, and the changing nature of each session keeps bodies from getting bored and falling asleep mid-pushup.
