Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.

Accelerate Sports Performance
The certified National Strength and Conditioning Association trainers at Accelerate Sports Performance design sports-specific training programs around increasing athlete agility, speed, movement, and strength inside a state-of-the-art fitness facility. Before clients begin training, a seven-movement FMS screening identifies movement inefficiencies and areas to recalibrate muscle memories. During 90-minute small-group trainings, the Dartfish video-analysis system offers real-time reviews that superimpose efficiency progress over flat-screen displays of former habits. Shock-absorbing plyorobic floors, air-pressurized Keiser racks, and 25 meters of turf optimize pursuits of gridiron glory or speed landscaping trophies. Post-workout, athletes can kick back in front of the lounge's 55-inch plasma TV, or use iPads to update a social-media page for their budding bicep muscles.
