Elizabeth Morrell knows what it takes to lose weight. After battling her demons and shedding more than 115 pounds, Elizabeth now helms Fitness Range to help others shave off excess mass and cultivate healthy lifestyles, even earning a feature in Courageous Woman Magazine. With help from her troop of certified instructors, she helms a diverse lineup of fitness classes such as yoga, spin, Pilates, and boot camps. She designs each of these sessions with students and female Jack LeLanne impersonators of all fitness levels and workout preferences in mind.
Korrie's Pilates Place’s founder, Korrie Sudweeks, channels her experience as a personal trainer and former gymnast into an entire spectrum of wellness services, including yoga, Pilates, massage, chiropractic medicine, and skincare. Her classes adhere to the philosophies of Hatha yoga, which carefully ties breath to movement in slow-paced flow or heart-pumping power-yoga sessions. Pilates veers down a different path to fitness, employing mats or equipment such as reformers, Wunda chairs, and the Barrel to strengthen and tone the core muscles that buttress spines and tricornered hats. Large mirrors reflect students’ progress against the backdrop of lime-green walls and hardwood floors.
Besides a working kitchen, there are two things a person needs in order to cook: the right gear and the right recipes. The chefs and food aficionados at Kitchen Fantasy supply both with an extensive stock of cookware and a full schedule of cooking classes. Kitchen Fantasy's products run the gamut from tools, like cheese slicers and meatball makers, to accessories, such as chef's coats. Its courses, taught by a team of experienced chefs, touch on general and specific cooking techniques, from knife skills to vegetable-cooking methods less destructive than flooding a garden with boiling water.
At Aces Comedy Club, a rotating lineup of local and touring standup comedians flocks to the stage to unpack its bag of funnies. The calendar of upcoming performers includes Patrick Deguire (May 10–13), a vision-impaired jokester who often pokes fun at needing his four kids to help him cross a dangerous intersection in his neighborhood. The freakishly talented Taylor Williamson (May 17–20) is the youngest comic ever to perform on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He's been featured on NBC's Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and MTV's TRL––all of which were cancelled soon thereafter, which he wears as a badge of pride. Seasoned funnyman Vince Morris (May 24–27), who has made appearances on HBO's Sex and the City and BET's ComicView, simultaneously splits sides and challenges perceptions with a chuckle-inducing routine packed with social commentary.
