Pole Expression founder Jennifer Wilkins blazes an alternative path to fitness by formulating pole-based workouts that are as fun as they are functional. A fitness columnist for Pole2Pole magazine who's also been on its cover, Wilkins has a strong industry presence that's won her and her method awards in Pole Dance International magazine for Best Instructor and Best Training Method. She's also a sponsor and a judge at the nation's largest pole-dancing championship.
Eschewing pole-bound acrobatics in favor of muscular isolations, the studio’s signature JW Pole Fitness classes utilize the signature support beam as a prop to help create muscle stability and burn calories, all without risk of injury. Because it doesn’t involve spins or inversions, the JW method is appropriate for students of any fitness level, and can even be employed to assist those overcoming injury or a childhood fear of lampposts. For those looking for a higher-energy exercise routine, pole-dancing classes exalt feminine curves through a graduated program that guides dancers from grounded moves to gymnastics-inspired toning to the saving of flags stuck high atop the Space Needle.
More traditional fitness comes in the form of Turbo Kick and yoga, which fosters flexibility through aligned posture and held poses, as well as Pilates classes, during which instructors target the torso's core muscles to boost bodily stability without fashioning toe rings made of lead. Check the studio's class calendar for a schedule of upcoming sessions.
MaidPro’s team makes people want to dance. “I did a little jig around my house after they left,” confessed one client, and another raved that her housecleaner “renewed my spirit as she brought order to my home.” Not only are MaidPro’s staffers efficient—they follow a 49-point cleaning checklist—but they are also trustworthy; more than 90% of clients hand over their house keys and private memoirs to the background-checked employees. As crews scour bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and living areas, they can dissolve dirt with a lineup of well-known products or fulfill requests to use cleansers that boast the Green Seal of eco-friendliness. If a client ever spots a spot within 24 hours of cleaning, MaidPro's staffers will return to reclean the area free of charge.
With more than 50 years of combined experience in the cleaning industry, Leone's team renews soiled household threads with waterless washing and preservation techniques for an array of garments. Unsoiled shirts retain their smooth cuffs with hand and machine pressing before tucking their tails into custom suits designed by Leone’s staffers, who also expunge stains from ties, dresses, trousers, and suede. Bewitching bridal gowns retain or regain their immaculate glow with Leone's bridal-gown cleaning and restoration services, which pair with an optional preservation chest for optimum safekeeping. Cleaners also twirl the dirt off of home textiles, such as down comforters and dingy curtain panels, enabling their fresh fibers to once again shield household interiors from bright rays and unwanted love letters from the sun. While they wait for their stain-free vestments, patrons at the Sandy location can peruse Leone's café’s spread of coffee, tea, and smoothies.
When clients sit down in front of the mirrors that lean against the exposed brick walls of Flaunt Salon, they have a choice. They can stick with a simple cut, perhaps with a deep-conditioning treatment to keep their hair healthy, or they can go for a complete makeover. One place to start would be a corrective color, which stylists perform to fix the subpar work of other salons or the mistakes of the animators who drew our dimension. Before they know it, clients end up with brighter smiles from the Da Vinci teeth-whitening system, more durable nails from a Shellac manicure, or healthier-looking skin from the botanical antioxidants of the rehydrating facial. They can then maintain their looks by taking home hair products from American Crew, Aquage, and Pureology.
