  • Pilates In East
    Internationally trained and Pilates Method Alliance–certified instructor Ahmé Bovée channels more than 15 years of experience as a fitness instructor into her core-strengthening workouts. After ending her five-year career as the host of Canada's popular Pilates in Guelph television series in 2007, she founded her open, sun-kissed studio. At Pilates in East, she helps students of all ages and abilities boost flexibility and endurance with resistance bands, weights, and reformer machines during group Pilates classes and private training sessions. This busy instructor deftly divides her time between these Pilates classes. She hosts teacher training certification programs and—like that dollar bill with the online tracking URL—travels the country to present at Pilates on Tour conferences.

  • Cascade Yoga Studio
    Cascade Yoga Studio's trained yogis teach students to rekindle inner harmony. With an emphasis on body awareness and the controlled inhalations and exhalations that support each posture, they teach this ancient yet progressive holistic practice. Classes of all skill levels take place in rooms adjusted to heat levels between 72 and 90 degrees to augment each class's effects. The studio works to abolish physical and mental limitations with a variety of yoga types, which include Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Yin. Most of Cascade's instructors migrated to yoga from careers in healthcare, and many are practicing physical therapists or have knit sweaters for cold stethoscopes. Cascade Yoga Studio also illuminates the path for aspiring yogis by hosting teacher training classes, which teach meditation, key alignment principles, and each yoga style's effects.

  • Endurance Fitness
    Group fitness classes and personal trainers are only a small sliver of the amenities at Elite Fitness. The gym also offers childcare services and a children?s dance studio so parents can work out worry-free. Tanning beds, meanwhile, allow guests to highlight contours and show off the hard work they've been doing on machines by Precor, Cybex, and Powertech, while a smoothie bar, salon, and massage studio await to refuel and refresh bodies post-workout. And, of course, the facility boasts immaculately maintained locker rooms where guests can shower (towels provided) and change back into their everyday clothes or hot dog suits before heading home.

  • Curves
    With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

  • Moby's Dive Shop
    Moby's Dive Shop employs a staff of certified diving enthusiasts to lead budding aquanauts in one-on-one introductory lessons. Before the lesson from Moby's, intrepid explorers participate in an online training session offered through Scuba Schools International to gain insight into diving fundamentals and to take a break from perpetually studying Kevin Costner as a postapocalyptic aqueous vagabond. After the online session is complete, Moby's adorns its hydrophilic students with the necessary equipment for an introductory dive in the indoor pool or the dive shop's exclusive, onsite scuba lake that boasts good visibility and an abundance of ichthyological life and deluged bottle messages containing coveted Donkey Kong codes.

  • Genius Phone Repair
    As he revealed in an article on MLive, Garry Von Myhr thinks about cell-phone repair so much that he talks about it in his sleep. Von Myhr opened Genius Phone Repair with partners Jordan Notenbaum and Steve Barnes. The startup has blossomed out of parent company Note Tech Industries—a cell-phone repair business that Notenbaum was running out of his basement—into a successful organization with ten convenient storefronts. The entrepreneurs' speedy and affordable services were praised in a feature on WZZM 13 News. They specialize in repairing iPhone, iPod, iPad, Samsung, LG, and Motorola mobile devices, and they stand behind their work with a 90-day warranty. The crew also purchases broken or functional devices for cash, and can recommend phone accessories such as protective cases or pasta-making attachments.
