After living everywhere from Washington, DC, to Guatemala, the owners of Urban Moves wound up in Columbus, and decided to pursue their passion for fitness and entrepreneurship. They bought the gym from its previous owner, and transformed it into a membership-free fitness studio dedicated exclusively to exercisers working with trainers, either one-on-one or in group classes.
In the boutique studio, the team of personal trainers designs programs to suit their clients’ goals, whether they want to complete a 5K race or take a bite from the famed nougat peak of Mount Everest. The troupe also hosts a variety of group classes in a wide range of exercise modalities, from gentle yoga to high-tech Power Plate training—a bona fide miracle of modern science that shapes muscles through vibration.

Q&A with the Fitness Training Profesonal
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Show them where they started from, show them their progress or how far they've come, and remind them the reasons they began.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Well, most people who come to our club, like to work out with no distractions. But what we do offer is nutrition consulting and suggestions. And [along] with our nutritional supplements we have...ready-to-go drinks and bars, soft goods, etc... Also, we're working on adding a reflexologist soon.
Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?
Yes. we have been and always will be a "judgment-free zone."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Just this: I've worked with all walks of life in fitness for over 30 years. I know this one thing to be true, for any human, high intense athlete or gardener, the body needs 1) supportive eating 2) cardio exercise and 3) resistance training for over-all heath and wellness.
Balanced Family Academy Fitness was founded by two sisters, Rebecca Handley and Sarah Fite. Their goal? To bring together all the elements of a sane parent's lifestyle in one place. Besides high-quality childcare, the duo also provides
workout sessions for parents and fresh food for families. This eclectic mix of services draws on Sarah's bachelor's degree in education and Rebecca's certification in personal training.
Childcare sessions at Balanced Family Academy Fitness are far from dry. In the teacher-led portions, everything hinges on literature. Reading is the jumping-off point for lessons on science, vocabulary, and drama. The stories brim with kid-friendly adventures, which youngsters can reenact during their free play time.
The academy's workouts for adults come in a variety of styles. During some, participants master Tae Bo punches and kicks, whereas in others they flow through yoga poses, or get their heart rates up with intense cardio. One extra perk? The schedule was clearly designed with working parents in mind. Classes as early as 5:45 a.m., and as late as 6:30 p.m.
With rotating menu items like hummus-and-veggie pinwheels or graham crackers with peach sauce, the mostly-organic kids' meals here sound good enough for adults to enjoy. The kitchen crafts an entire separate menu of take-away meals for adults and families, however. It features paninis, salads, and other dishes healthier than their kids' miles of leftover grilled cheese crusts.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Melanie Ash Fitness stands out from other trainers because of our dedication to our clients. Your program is completely customized to your needs, resources, ability, preferences and goal. We are invested in your success and go above and beyond to help you accomplish your goals.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Accountability is key to success in any diet and exercise program. I keep clients motivated by checking in regularly to see how things are going, discussing potential obstacles that could be holding them back or affecting their motivation, and developing strategies to overcome these obstacles.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I believe that being healthy and fit improves your life in all areas. Taking care of your body by exercising regularly and eating healthy is the best thing a woman can do for herself. My goal is to empower women to feel strong, live confidently, love their bodies and believe in themselves.
What do you love most about your job?
What I love most about my job is having the chance to work with so many inspiring women! Nothing brings me more joy than watching clients transform physically and mentally. Getting healthier isn’t just about a pant size or a number on the scale. My clients learn to love feeling strong and capable.
