If you walk amid bFit Studio’s high ceilings and sprung floor within the Fox Chapel Yacht Club, you would not see solo exercisers walking aimlessly among complicated machines without knowing how to properly use them or motivate themselves. Instead, your eyes would meet the sight of bodies moving in tandem to energetic beats that pump from a surround system. That’s because the staff of certified instructors focus all their attention on classes, in which clients of all fitness levels make use of equipment such as TRX straps, BOSU balls, and Kangoo boots.
Just as doctors keep instrumental parts of the body healthy, the Gillece Services team keeps essential components of the home working safely and efficiently. Instead of working on hearts and brains, though, the company's steady-handed technicians operate on heating, cooling, plumbing, and electrical units.
Their commitment to customer satisfaction stems from founder Tom Gillece, who started the business in 1980 and has since integrated his son Tom Gillece, Jr. into a leadership role. In the company’s more than three decades, the team, under the Gillece family's guidance, has made urgency a top priority. That means they're available when needed most, including on weekends, on holidays, and during breakups. Gillece Services also aspires to make a positive impact on its community and on the world; the company even sent one of its plumbers on a relief mission to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010.
Eddie’s Inspection Station & Repairs makes sure that cars are legal and safe for the roadways. They do this with state inspections and emissions testing, but they also perform a variety of repairs on cars and SUVs to keep them operating at peak performance. They service radiators, alternators, starters, and brakes, and they also conduct oil changes and tune-ups to further bolster the vehicle’s drivability.
The efficiency experts at WeatherKing Heating and Air Conditioning drag domestic climate systems into the digital age with high-tech gadgetry. WeatherKing's techs, armed with meticulous training and science, deploy to homes to help clients work out cost-effective, convenient ways to keep living spaces comfortable. Rather than outright replacing furnaces, air conditioners, or barbecue pits filled with old newspaper, techs take the time to run through options that might include introducing an existing furnace to a touchscreen thermostat that's synced with WiFi to monitor energy output.
The staff also keeps homeowners breathing easy. Duct cleaning seeks out and eradicates mold and allergens stationed in vents, and heat-recovery ventilators purify musty in-home air, redirecting it back into the heating system and recycling up to 84% of otherwise wasted energy. The company’s motto—“We treat you the way we want our own family to be treated”—undergirds each of its services. To this end, dispatchers man phones 24 hours a day, at the ready to send out crews to replace furnaces, subdue burst pipes, or disperse the gang of mermen that have taken over the guest bathroom.
