At Top Notch Express Car Wash, customers can choose their preferred degree of cleaning control. Each of the four locations abides by a flex system, enabling owners to drive by for a full- or express-service scrubbing. Express washes cleanse and jet-dry exteriors before patrons vacuum the interiors themselves, whereas full-service washes employ the staff to vacuum, clean windows, and oversee the application of add-ons such as wax and tire shine. Frequent clients can even sign up for a monthly unlimited wash plan, a prudent asset for autos that are regularly sullied by off-road excursions or ice-cream-truck demolition derbies.

Technicians further primp vehicles with meticulous detailing at all venues, and oil changes at West Augusta and Evans. Their focus on speed and convenience has earned them the Best of Augusta award for 14 years straight in Augusta magazine, and prompted the installment of handy amenities, including auto-pay machines and a fleet account program for company cars.

Iron Fitness's name and garage-like exterior might suggest that it holds a cavernous space full of musclemen and barbells. Instead, step through the doors and you'll find an intimate, boutique workout experience marked by 9,000 square feet of fitness machines and three studios with distinct identities.

Iron x PT specializes in personal training. During one-on-one fitness sessions, upbeat but tough-minded trainers analyze what clients need to do to reach their fitness goals, then motivate them to do it. Momentum, on the other hand, is all about the power of group fitness. Its instructors don't just follow workout trends—often, they set them, pioneering styles such as the hip-hop-based Groov3 and Pound, which celebrates percussive rhythms and prepares students for marathon meat-tenderizing sessions. Finally, the Elite studio connects gloved fists and with punching bags in a ring run by pro-level boxing instructors.

Matteo Baker didn't put “220” in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be “second to none.” With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to chiropractic care to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy.

According to Los Angeles magazine, brotherly duo Matt and Christian Shubin channeled their lifelong love of ocean sports into Poseidon Stand Up Paddle Boards, located walking distance from the pier. Their shop stocks all of the necessary gear for oceanic outings, including squat Starboard paddleboards that easily slice through the surf. Pro riders design and test-drive C4 Waterman boards before presenting them to amateurs, who propel watercraft with the store's inventory of lightweight but powerful carbon and fiberglass paddles. Accessories such as leashes, roof racks, and repair kits secure and beautify paddleboards without tacky layers of eye shadow. Customers may consult the expertise of an online board finder to pinpoint the right fit for their frames, aptitudes, and preferences.

Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape.

She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.
