Zumba Fitness New Jersey's licensed head instructor Melissa Marcketta and her enthusiastic staff lead over thirty light-hearted, hip-swiveling Latin dance workouts per week across five locations. During one-hour Zumba with Zumba Toning classes, students become acquainted with pulse-pounding dance moves and strength training exercises that create physiques as tight and toned as a bass drum crafted from recycled Tarzan posters. The calorie-crushing combination of aerobic gyrations and shimmy-infused strength training is accessible for all ability levels. The studio employs multiple instructors to ensure varied workouts, eclectic soundtracks, and a spectrum of opinions surrounding the optimal peanut-butter-to-broccoli ratio for a postworkout sandwich.
Graham Fitness trainer and founder Norman Graham took an interest in fitness at age 12, when he was deeply insecure about his skinny frame. Determined to change and strengthen his body, he sought advice from every expert he could access, beginning with his weight-lifting cousins and "everyone who [he] thought had muscular size." Now a muscular, prize-winning lifter, Norman consults with Olympic athletes and powerlifting champions. His own quick progress convinced him that working one-on-one with experts is the best way for people to reach their physical goals, whether they hope to lose weight, build muscle, or grow as tall as their favorite redwood trees. To make personal training accessible, he started Graham Fitness' in-person and online training options, both of which deliver custom fitness and nutrition savvy.
Along with personal-training services, Graham Fitness hosts high-energy group classes such as Zumba, yoga, and pole fitness. Whether clients come for one-on-one sessions or group workouts, the trainers emphasize a positive, supportive environment, celebrating its "biggest losers" on Facebook posts and online.
When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop—then called Pete's Subway—proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.
Today, Subway restaurants number over 34,000 around the world—almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway's website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutrition information and fastest mile time online.
At Mexican Post, you can customize every classic, including tacos, burritos, and that sombrero you're forced to wear on your birthday. Mild, green-tomatillo, or hot salsa can accent chicken, carnitas, steak, or tofu on flour or whole-wheat tortillas.
