Q&A with Jessica Rask, Owner

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

Our school is a warm, loving place with a great community. We encourage students to get to know each other so they are more likely to come practice together. We also offer both 60- and 90-minute classes, so if a student can only find an hour in the day, he or she can still take a class. We love what we do, and that excitement often inspires our students.

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

We are planning to open a juice bar in the fall, where we'll serve cold-pressed juice?the healthiest form of delivery for nutrients to your body. The juice is never heated and no preservatives are used, ensuring the juice is the highest quality possible.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

We believe that every body can practice our yoga, whether injured or uninjured, sick or well, old or young. There is no judgement from our staff or students about where you are when you begin. There is always a place to start, and never a place to finish.

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

Please contact us with questions if you have a specific injury. We can help no matter what.

His team of expert trainers leads guests through group fitness classes that turn bodies into granite sculptures through a series of weightlifting routines and the crystallization of magma. Patrons can coax coy muscles from epidermal hideouts with free weights, dumbbells, squat racks, and an expansive cardio circuit, all accessible to members by keycard 24 hours a day. Meanwhile, Heavy Metal Crossfit?the gym's in-house CrossFit program?takes a different tack to fitness, leading exercisers ever-changing rotation of high-intensity functional movements.

For custom guidance, guests can pair up with a personal trainer or can sign up for the structured Laser weight-loss program, a regimen designed to blast off pounds with a laser focus but without actual lasers.

Chris and Pam Schmick had spent six months cleaning out the scrap metal from their abandoned silos and just finished drilling thousands of holes in its walls. With little time to spare, they prepared for their climbing gym's grand opening on September 2, 1995—a date on which they had already agreed to hold a regional JCCA competition. The effort they've expended in the nearly 20 intervening years shows: today, climbers scramble on top ropes, lead ropes, and more than 20,000 square feet of lava-free climbing surface.

Instructors prepare visitors to surmount the gym's features in a range of classes, such as Rock Gym 101, which is an introduction to top-rope climbing that covers climbing safety, basic technique, and equipment. Once climbers are equipped with gear from the pro-shop, staff shows them around a multi-level bouldering cave, a main climbing area with 30-foot walls shaped by arêtes, cracks, and waves, and the building's five original silos. Elsewhere inside the gym, six auto-belays safely cradle visitors who wish to climb without taking a class.

At the end, all cards with the full 20 punches are entered into a drawing for a three-month gym membership.
