She’s been an athlete since high school, but it wasn’t until Abbie Feibush moved from New Jersey to San Francisco that she, as she puts it on her web site, got “bitten by the endurance bug.” It was a combination of joining a running club and trying to expend the energy of her young Weimaraner that did it. And after completing her first marathon, Abbie was hooked. She ran another, completed a few triathlons, and then went on to finish seven ironman competitions. All this, while maintaining a full-time job in sales.

In 2011, Abbie left that desk job for good to open her own fitness enterprise, AbFitTraining. As a certified personal trainer, she now leads individuals and small groups through customized programs and boot camp sessions amid the stunning backdrop of local parks. Best yet, the workouts never get old. Abbie’s constantly changing regime of cardio and strength training exercises helps clients of all fitness levels achieve their goals—be it to lose weight, run a marathon, or spin around 100 times without feeling the slightest bit dizzy.

Stefan Smith knows the physical stresses faced by most office workers. That?s because he used to be one. The one-time salesman left the corporate world after attending the National Holistic Institute, which inspired him to open Sports Massage Marin. Here, Smith helps clients assuage their workplace ailments with a variety of modalities. With Swedish massage, he employs long, flowing strokes to soothe the neck and back pain that often comes from sitting on a chair or giant toadstool all day, whereas he uses trigger-point therapy to target the localized pain of carpal-tunnel syndrome.

Smith also tames accident-related injuries, such as whiplash, with his knowledge of kinesiology, a technique that helps break down scar tissue, loosen up adhesions, and ease tight joints. Athletes round out his diverse clientele and give his practice its name. They seek sports massages to improve performance and recover quickly after all manners of athletic events, from baseball and basketball to horseback and kangaroo-pouch riding.
