After studying with prestigious leaders in the hair styling field and serving as the artistic director for Randy Rick Hair Concepts, Cari Nelson learned firsthand that the best stylists are the ones who can effectively fuse artistry with professionalism and problem solving. Adopting these qualities within herself, she sought out other imaginative, yet disciplined scissor wielders to staff her very own salon. Today, she and her team of master designers and seasoned veterans build relationships with clients as they craft flattering coiffures sure to impress onlookers. When Nelson isn't stationed atop her studio's black-and-white floors, she leads trainings and takes advantage of shadowing opportunities.

At MMAXOUT Fitness, certified trainers fuse high-impact circuit workouts with the punishing training techniques of MMA fighters. A sample class might find students transitioning from slicing upper cuts through the air to dropping down and pounding out mountain climbers and muay thai elbow strikes against a pad on the ground. Each week focuses on a different muscle group, helping participants build a balanced, toned body. Instructors challenge their students to dig deep, leading the charge through vocal shouts of encouragement and silent yet stirring kabuki movement pieces.
