Dustin Williams is a bit old fashioned, at least when it comes to fitness. As the owner and head personal trainer at Precision Fitness, he doesn't buy into fancy equipment, miracle weight-loss drugs, or fad diets. Instead, he focuses on the time-tested methods of hard work, motivation, and accountability. Dustin leads 30-minute group personal-training classes, which banish fat while toning physiques, and abs, butt, and shoulder classes, which build strength and reduce pain. In addition, he's a National Strength and Conditioning Association?certified strength and conditioning specialist and uses that expertise to train those preparing for bodybuilding and figure competitions.
Pellegrino's School of Music & Art molds artistic minds from toddlers to adults in a variety of visual and musical mediums. Though Pellegrino's breadth of subjects is diverse?ranging from kids' art classes to college-prep musical theory?its goal is simple: teach. Rather than splitting their time between renting instruments, selling sheet music, or any number of other services, the instructors focus intently on improving students' musical and artistic abilities through group and private lessons. Pellegrino's also takes their clients' time into account, offering music lessons over Skype so students don't have to worry about driving through traffic or running a seven-minute mile with a trombone strapped to their backs to make their lessons in time.
Skype lessons are limited at this time to guitar and drum lessons.
