Having adapted his training philosophies over the years, Austin Gwaltney quickly realized that there is no substitute for intensity. At Innovative Strength & Conditioning, hard work pays off as exercisers test their limits with a bevy of traditional and innovative routines. Gwaltney’s highly efficient workouts use full-body, multi-muscle movements to simultaneously ramp up the metabolism, burn fat, and build muscle. Gwaltney and his team also work with students who haven’t worked out in weeks, getting them up to speed after a winter spent on the couch or a spring spent in a Fluffernutter cocoon.

It’s easy to never think about what chemicals make up your soaps and body lotions, but the staffers at The Soap Salon like to make sure you know what you’re getting into. That’s because they hand-make their signature line of soaps, body oils, and bath salts exclusively with wholesome vegetable oils, herbs, and nut butters. The staff takes the education one step further by inviting customers to learn how to make their own soaps and lotions through a variety of classes. Students always take home finished products, which they can then use to lather up their front lawn.
Yoga Loka co-founders Bill and Sandy McCauley, inspired by the centering benefits of Bikram yoga, worked to achieve Bikram teaching certification and open their own yoga studio in 1995. Now supported by a talented team of instructors, the McCauleys welcome students of all experience levels to discover the 90-minute Bikram style. During each class, instructors lead students through a set of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, and the studio's balmy temperatures, like South American vacations, induce sweating to help rid the body of toxins and build an appreciation for winter.
