What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Pilates N Harmony is a new kind of studio that divides health from fitness. We see health as overall balance, and fitness as personal accomplishment. Unlike other studios in the business, we personalize our programs to accommodate each client and their unique needs.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We offer a wide rage of classes from Pilates and Yoga to Physical Care and Meditation. Our instructors cue their clients with unique visuals for each lesson in order to optimize the benefit of the exercise.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Established in 2009 by Noevia Lopez: a professional dancer and certified fitness instructor. Noevia turned to Pilates as a form of rehabilitation after a hip surgery which stunted her dance career. Inspired by her rehabilitation through Pilates, Noevia chose to dedicate her life to enriching others.

Lifelong dancer Carmen Garson chose the goddess as the symbol of her fitness studio and boutique because it represents a loving, feminine energy. She aims to channel that energy throughout each of her belly-dancing, flamenco, Bollywood, African-dance, and yoga classes, helping earn her establishment the Hollywood Gazette’s Best Place for Yoga award. Within the wood-floored studio decked out with creations by local artists, she and her team host 33 dance and fitness classes a week.
Garson also opens her space for monthly art and poetry events where women come to share their creativity and boast about how many arms their inner goddesses have. She stocks the on-site boutique with exotic clothing and jewelry, as well as with spiritual books, essential oils candles, and incense.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 1,800 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
Former US Marine Clive Phillips co-owns Iron Beast CrossFit with his wife, Eillen. Clive knows toughness when he sees it—being in the military will do that—so it's no surprise that he gravitated toward CrossFit and its intense, functional exercises.
As is the case at most CrossFit gyms, Iron Beast designs daily WODs (short for "workout of the day") that challenge various muscle groups. Adjustable to many different fitness levels, these WODs may include everything from weightlifting to sprinting. The idea is to strengthen the muscles we use every day to climb the stairs, chase the bus, or save the city from giant robots.

Savvy Rydes believes in the power of the small group. Its fitness classes are capped at 15 people so its certified fitness instructors can give attention to each participant, whether showing beginners the ropes or motivating veteran exercisers to push themselves to the limit, or to the outskirts of town. The staff fuels these personalized fitness programs with Zumba dance routines, TRX suspension-training equipment, Polar GX gear, or indoor Real Ryder ABF8 cycles that tilt and lean like real bikes.
