Sweatfilled, Soulful Showcase

The girls that look the worst in the gym, look the best outside of it, and this list of vendors is sure to help get you there. 

The concept of this directory is to be an “Urban Spoon” style of the health and fitness industry. I have a grass roots approach to supporting the local fitness scene from the 757 and beyond.  By traveling around to many gyms and fitness studios, I am able to provide a true unbiased opinion of what a facility has to offer. No matter what level or interest, there is a place for everyone. Virginia Beach is packed full of health and fitness studios and has been named as one of the fittest cities by ACSM.

Each establishment or product is subject to a series of visits and testing. I interview the trainers and other members of the facility. I provide an account of my experience in their establishment. The review is not a pass/fail, but instead a true representation of what the visit was like. Some factors described in the reviews include: difficulty, atmosphere, price, and even the instructor. An individual’s health and fitness journey is extremely personal and unique. My idea is to help anyone who is passionate about living a healthy life, find the place, products, or group that is right for them to live the lifestyle successfully.

—Leslie  owner of Dream Float Spa “Social media has been a huge help in promoting our spa, sharing info on the benefits of Floatation Therapy and spreading the word on our current specials. As a small, local business owner, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are great, inexpensive tools to advertise. Dream Float Spa has used Facebook exclusively to advertise our $29 Military Monday Float sessions and it is now one of our busiest days. We recently did a promotion with The Fit Petite on Facebook and gained 8 new clients!”
