In 2005, Sili Kalepo and a friend started working out in an old warehouse; it was their solution to the complete lack of neighborhood gyms in Rainier Beach. Fortunately, the space suited their style of exercise pretty well, their programs caught on, and they started a gym. They became part of the non-profit Urban Impact, striving to promote healthier lifestyles in the community. Time treated them well, and in 2013 they relocated to a brand new facility on the ground floor of the Emerald City Commons, with their CrossFit program taking over the space next door. These days, workouts incorporate a variety of agility, strength, and endurance training techniques. The routines can get pretty intense, but the trainers are on-hand to monitor maneuvers and ensure participants stay healthy. "We believe that all people have a threshold that is safe for their bodies to handle," says the CrossFit trainer. "All workouts can be modified to your intensity level and ability."

For Beautiful Bike founder Peter Cannon, it was love at first bike. Within months of his first ride at age 10, he progressed from wobbly pedaling to bunny hopping up and down the block. This aptitude for tricks helped him turn his love into a career; he spent the '80s as a competitive BMX racer. After retiring from the circuit, Peter founded Beautiful Bike to share his velocipedestrian love with the world. Today, his customized indoor cycling classes help riders of all ages and experience levels improve their form while getting in shape. During these sessions, students climb atop revolutionary RealRyder bikes, which combine stationary bikes' stability with real cycles' ability to lean and bank. This innovative combination simulates the sensation of outdoor riding without the hassle of encountering traffic or having to share air with wild beasts.
