At Auto Shine Detail, customers weave through a well-waxed inventory of quality pre-owned vehicles. The automotive stables include performance sedans from Audi and Volkswagen, sporty Jeep Wranglers, and heavy-duty Dodge trucks. A dedicated sales staff helps facilitate the car search process with detailed information about each vehicle’s history, condition, and snacking preferences on long road trips.
The savvy staff at Spark Bike Run Sports furthers athletic pursuits with top-of-the-line track and wheel gear and carefully rendered cycling services. Spark's signature service, the Pro-Clean Tech Tune, refurbishes velocipedes in like-new condition with a professional-level clean performed without disassembly, a comprehensive safety check, and a squeeze bottle of champagne to squirt over the chassis. After drying, bipedal steeds are treated to an essential readjustment of the brakes, derailleurs, shifters, and bottom bracket, as well as a wheel alignment, readying bikes for a long winter of traversing icy roads and avoiding hitchhiking snowmen on the highway.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get in Shape for Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. Each of their small-group sessions are tailored to each exerciser. The trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then, they do 25 minutes of cardio—the trainers might start beginners with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for increased results.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To track ladies' progress toward reaching their goals, the trainers measure their weight and body-fat percentage every two weeks.
The trainers of Be Fit Performance, Inc. never fit in at big, corporate gyms, where, they felt, clients' needs often got lost in the hustle. So they decided to create an environment that values personal relationships and depth of training over the quantity of training. During one-on-one personal training sessions, they help students of all levels build strength and burn fat, with regular health assessments to measure their progress. They also challenge groups with high-intensity Be Fit eXtreme fitness classes.
