Cofounded by Dawn and Joe Mader, an accomplished artist and a trained musician, respectively, Studio 915 welcomes all levels of artists into its charming, historical space with a range of classes and workshops. During sessions, experienced instructors dispense wisdom on topics such as drawing, painting, and alphabet-soup short stories, and students leave with finished works. Masterpieces from 20 local artists and craftsmen adorn the studio's hardwood floors, creamy drywall, and exposed brick, forming an inspiring hangout for culture-lovers and stonemasons. Organized events take place in the gallery space throughout the year.
Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, staff meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength, cardio condition, and bionic-limb manufacturers. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthful eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.
Fueled by the belief that fitness and nutrition go hand in hand, WCA-lauded chiropractor Dr. Ken Krimpelbein puts his knowledge of the human body and skills in diet management to use helping people transform their lifestyles. In addition to offering exercise classes, such as Zumba and yoga, Dr. Krimpelbein and his team stock their naturally lit, TV-lined workout area with free weights, plate-loaded equipment, and cardio machines, including Woodway treadmills, elliptical machines, and stationary bicycles. On the nutrition side of the spectrum, they offer weight-loss and detoxification guidance via their FirstLine Therapy program. They also run an onsite juice bar, where members can rev up with a healthful snack and a smoothie.
