"In three years, I've never repeated a workout. Who wants to do the same thing over and over again?" said Total Core Fit Camp’s head trainer, Ryan Toth, according to Fighting For Life. The seasoned athlete's creative, constantly varied workouts have drawn more than 400 fitness seekers to his program and earned a feature on News 12's Get Fit Fridays. Amid his studio's pull-up bars, kettlebells, and punching bags, Ryan and his staff of fellow certified trainers lead functional workouts, favoring blasting through total-body movements over working on weight machines or running on treadmills. Ryan’s dedication to fitness seeps into his personal life as well, as you can spot his wife Dori sweating alongside him while their three young children watch and record their critiques.
Ryan and the trainers encourage their students to achieve healthy lifestyles beyond the classroom with nutritional counseling, arming them with custom meal plans, nutrition tips, and wholesome recipes. His online program provides busier patrons with complete at-home workouts, enabling them to bust moves at home or during their manager's long-winded motivational speech at the office.
After a debilitating car accident left Elyissia Wassung’s mother, Barbara, unable to commute to work, she stayed busy in the kitchen, devising her own homemade chocolates. Nine-year-old Elyissia would then load her mother’s sweets into a shopping cart and sell them door-to-door around the neighborhood, learning entrepreneurial skills that would last a lifetime. After leaving a telecom job as an adult, Elyissia returned to selling chocolates by founding 2 Chicks with Chocolate (the other chick being her mom), teaming up with master chocolatier Patrick Coston and lead chocolatier Stephanie Vazquez. The dessert innovators create diverse flavors, such as spiced pear and caramel ganache, s’mores, and hazelnut praline, from scratch with spices and sea salt. Customers can also create their own bars online without venturing into the store, building on a selection of chocolate bases and toppings that range from pistachios to gummy bears. The store also hosts chocolate classes and enlivens parties with chocolate fountains and chocolate tastings.
