  • Quaking Grass Wellness Center
    After spending time in Quaking Grass's furnished loft studio, you learn why some of the yoga, Zumba, and holistic-dance instructors refer to the space as their "big living room." Once inside the studio, you find yourself in a sprawling, high-ceilinged loft. Natural light spills in from tall windows and onto green walls, where African art and decorative Asian fans hang. Scanning the room, you see plush furniture, a kitchenette, and a massive Native American dream catcher, painted white and hanging 6 feet to the floor. Quaking Grass is home to the Healing Arts Collective; many of its members left positions as businesspeople, teachers, and lawyers in favor of a more relaxed lifestyle. According to director Heather Straube, they each felt called to help others through techniques such as massage, yoga, and dance. Instructors lead students through progressive poses in Vinyasa yoga, dances set to Latin and Caribbean beats in Zumba, and blends of meditative martial arts and freeform movement in Earthquake Ecstatic and Nia dance. Though they guide some classes step-by-step, instructors emphasize free exploration over adhering to a strict routine—reminding students that they can meditate silently, pair off with partners, or dance alone to practice leading and following at the same time. Once each month, Quaking Grass's members also host an open community clinic, experimental salon, and potluck. Practitioners stationed throughout the space introduce curious guests to basics of tarot-card reading, massage, hypnosis, quantum touch, and a host of other holistic methods—with the hope that visitors, like babies balancing their first checkbooks, experience something new. Individual members, artists, or community practitioners may also lead workshops or lectures explaining their craft.

  • The MultiSport Advantage
    As a citizen of “Track Town USA,” Jeff West has vast experience with all varieties of endurance athletics. An accomplished rower and rowing coach, Jeff balances triathlon training and ultra-distance running with volunteer work as a firefighter and paramedic. At The MultiSport Advantage, Jeff leads a team of coaches as they work with and challenge athletes. Up to eight cyclists hook into the CompuTrainer system, riding against each other in classes that help max out aerobic capacity and refine the economy of one’s biking motion. The center’s custom-made TRX apparatus can also accommodate eight athletes, helping them build dynamic strength by blending body-weight exercises with plyometrics and BOSU balls. The center’s metabolic testing identifies the baseline and limits of an athlete’s capacity, and helps trainers craft a plan for the triathlon students. Triathletes can also rent wetsuits that will keep them dry during the traditional Gatorade and kombucha bath they receive after crossing the finish line.

  • Nature's Touch Healing Center
    Licensed acupuncturist and herbalist Cindy Conlin is sensitive to the pain people can feel. Her experiences interning with Survivors of Torture, helping patients with post-traumatic stress syndrome, and continuing her education in pain-management training have given her a unique insight into holistic healing. At Nature’s Touch Healing Center, Cindy employs natural, drug-free remedies to aid visitors with everything from relaxation to treatment of depression, chronic aches, and infertility. She consults with clients at the start of each visit, discussing their health history, symptoms and expectations, and the root of the word “stethoscope.” From there, she maps out the most appropriate treatment plan. Cindy’s methods often enlist not just acupuncture, but any number of her specialties in cupping, medical essential-oil therapy, Chinese herbal therapy, and nutrition counseling to encourage the body’s natural healing processes.

  • CrossFit Code Red
    When he isn't at his gym or steering a helicopter through commercial and instructive flights, owner Jake Maslin coaches high-school and college-level lacrosse teams, channeling his own experiences in competitive sports to condition players. He also draws on the discipline ingrained by his service in the military, a resolve that fuels his passion for communal CrossFit workouts. Their inclusive group ushers total beginners and regulars through a vigorous but rewarding fitness regimen guided by 10 core values, such as honor, honesty, and leaving no one behind. The tenets all bespeak a tightly knit atmosphere that underlies each new Workout of the Day, pushing members through every last rep and away from ice-cream stands. Techniques from Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, and sprinting merge to form challenging routines with movements that are scalable to all fitness levels.

  • Jazzercise National
    While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise. Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren't needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.
