CHEF JONI DENNIS K EEPS IT SIMPLE WHEN ENTERTAINING FRIENDS ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY MEEKA COOK

INTERNATIONAL CHEF JONI DENNIS LOVES TO ENTERTAIN HER FRIENDS. What she doesn’t love is spending hours in the kitchen when friends come to visit. She is the quintessential queen of creating meals with ease and lightning speed. “The key to simple meals is using five ingredients or less,” she says. “This helps keep the cost and the time to a minimum.” This recipe fits all the requirements of a great dish. It is delicious, and the presentation is beautiful. INGREDIENTS + 2 pounds fresh shrimp with shell + 5 star fruits + 5 lemons + 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning DIRECTIONS 1. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. 2. Boil the shrimp for 3 minutes. 3. Run cold water over the shrimp. 4. Toss with Old Bay Seasoning. 5. Squeeze juice of two lemons over the shrimp and toss well. 6. Garnish with cut lemons and sliced star fruit. CHEF TIP: Take the whole lemon and a small sharp knife. Carve zig-zag cuts all around the fruit. Once you’ve made it all the way around, carefully separate the halves and trim off rough edges. This is called a Van Dyke cut. ChefJoni.com

PUT A NEW SPIN

ON YOUR WORKOUT + THREE FITNESS TRENDS TO TRY IN 2018

INDOOR

CYCLING / AKA

SPINNING

IT’S ALWAYS EXCITING WHEN THE HOLIDAYS ARE BEHIND US, AND JANUARY COMES AROUND WITH A SENSE OF PURPOSE AND ALL THE EXCITEMENT OF A NEW YEAR. This is traditionally

the time when many people start something new. Quite often, goals are set to become a healthier, more fit version of yourself. Lucky for you, Smyrna and Vinings are all up to speed with experts and venues offering you all the latest fitness techniques. INDOOR CYCLING AKA SPINNING Cycle Élan by Asson Michel 4585 S. Cobb Drive SE, #600, Smyrna 470.755.8610 CycleElan.com

The art of indoor cycling and the concept of spinning started in the mid-'80s, but over the last decade, it has piqued the curiosity of fitness enthusiasts nationwide. The cultlike culture of spinning enthusiasts has grown exponentially, and the sport now beckons to clients with dim or strobe lighting, toned instructors and sleek modern cycles. The extreme cardio workout builds a healthy heart, and the calories burned build lean muscle definition. In Smyrna, Asson Michel will take you on an exhilarating ride. This boutique cycling and yoga studio just celebrated its one-year anniversary, and Smyrna residents are smitten. The company operates on three basic principles: are we raising the bar, will our clients feel better after the session, and have we done everything possible to ensure our clients have the best possible experience? If you are a beginner, no worries. You can start with their 30-minute easy ride class. They teach you proper form, posture and breathing techniques to help build up your stamina and endurance.  They raise the bar by always looking for new ideas and concepts. "One of our most popular classes right is the Cycle & Tone class. We give you a hardcore 30-minute ride followed up by 30 minutes of body toning. This is a perfect way to get in that gym-type workout with your trainer as well as your cardio on the bike," Ann Ruff, Cycle Elan sales and customer experience manager, says. "Another thing that's popular with our clients is Yoga & Bellini Saturdays. Customers are led through an amazing restorative yoga session then get rewarded with a delicious Bellini at the end.”

FROM

BALLET TO BARRE

FROM BALLET TO BARRE Pure Barre by Maggie Tarver 4300 Paces Ferry Road SE, #476, Vinings 770.989.1375 PureBarre.com

The elongated, toned limbs and grace of the ballet dancer have long embodied the vision of perfection. A ballet barre is a significant tool for the dancer and the beginnings of an innovative fitness concept called Pure Barre. Pure Barre promises to lengthen and tone your body while cultivating increased flexibility and balance. The “barre physique” is accomplished through the combination of a ballet barre, Pilates, yoga and music. The marketing of graceful beauty has attracted a largely female audience who prefer sleek muscles to bulk. Owner Maggie Tarver will dance you through the movement from beginner to ballerina goddess at her Pure Barre studio. This cozy studio gives you a full-body workout in

less than an hour. You will get warmed up pretty quickly with planks and pushups, then move on to your thighs and finish up with some intense abdominal exercises. “Every class is different and driven by the power of music—pushing clients through that final 10 count every time," Maggie says. The "secret sauce" of Pure Barre is the community. “It’s easy to make friends in the class," she says. "Workout buddies will hold you accountable for showing up to class.” Beginners, don’t be shy!  “We offer a ‘breaking down the barre’ workshop once a month that covers the basics of the program," Maggie says. "Additionally, newbies can come early to class, and we’ll offer them a brief pre-class orientation.” To promote the community atmosphere, Maggie plans a range of events including theme days and a class on Hermi’s Bridge once a year. Comments you may hear after a workout are, “I feel great,” “That was a doozy," and “I’m going to feel that tomorrow.”

IT’S A NEW YEAR AND TIME TO PUT A NEW SPIN ON YOUR WORKOUT

(CON TI N UED)

“Barring disease, if an individual starts to exercise on a regular basis, and as part of a structured program, and better dietary habits, their health will always improve.”

PERSONAL TRAINERS MAKE IT PERSONAL

PERSONAL TRAINERS MAKE IT PERSONAL Fit Family by Robert Dothard 1675 Cumberland Parkway SE, #413, Smyrna 770.436.1381 RobertDothard.com Be prepared to have a personal relationship with your personal trainer. This type of training holds you accountable to your mission. Initial meetings with your trainer will outline goals and commitments including time and nutrition guidelines. Through a series of one-on-one sessions, the personal trainer can assess your strengths and your weaknesses and ease you along the journey to your goals. Most trainers have a wealth of experience in fitness and are chock-full of great ideas on how to help you to reach your personal best. Robert Dothard in Smyrna could be the right choice to propel you towards your fitness goals. If you are ready to get serious about your workout, then an excellent place to start is at Fit Family studio with Robert as your personal trainer. He was your Wake up Workout celebrity trainer for five years on Channel 11 and also the coach for "Atlanta’s Biggest Loser" for the 2008-09 season. After owning a franchise for several years, Robert opened his Fit Family studio in Smyrna 11 years ago. “The entire family is brought in once a need is established," Robert says. "For example, mom comes in to tone up and lose weight, and after seeing her success, the husband comes in to get in better shape for activities like golf or tennis. Now, we are trusted with the kids because many are only getting limited training with their sports and activities.” Robert starts out with a new client with a clear message. “Barring disease, if an individual starts to exercise on a regular basis, and as part of a structured program, and better dietary habits, their health will always improve," he says. Robert loves creating a program for beginners as he gets to watch the progression and see the transformation of an entire family. There is no time like today to choose a fitness style customized to your passion. Love every minute of becoming your best version of yourself.

IF YOU WANT TO BE PROACTIVE ABOUT YOUR HEART HEALTH BUT DON’T HAVE A CARDIOLOGIST, I RECOMMEND THE KNOW YOUR HEART SCREENING PROGRAM AT WELLSTAR VININGS HEALTH PARK. Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death for both men and women. This screening program empowers patients and provides valuable information. To schedule, call 770.956.STAR (7827). TIPS TO LOWER YOUR RISK FOR HEART DISEASE

TENECIA ALLEN, M.D., WELLSTAR CARDIOLOGIST + Lives in Vinings + Serves patients at WellStar Vinings Health Park and WellStar Cobb Hospital

1. Maintain a healthy weight. Obesity is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke and many other conditions. 2. Eat a heart-healthy diet. Include healthy fats, like avocados and almonds, vegetables and limit red meat.   3. Aim for 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week. Hike nearby trails on the Chattahoochee while getting exercise and bonus stress relief.   

+ Undergraduate degree in chemical engineering: Florida

4. Reduce stress. Consider deep breathing, spirituality or exercise.  

A&M University

5. Stop smoking. It is the most reversible cause of heart disease.

+ Medical school, residency and cardiovascular training: Emory University School of Medicine

6. Take all medications as prescribed for your hypertension, diabetes and cholesterol. 7. Look for apps, support groups and, most importantly, see your doctor. WellStar Medical Group Cardiovascular Medicine, WellStar Vinings Health Park, 4441 Atlanta Road SE, Smyrna, GA 30080. 470.956.9480

LOCAL’S CHOICE

CANDICE CUNNINGHAM

SHARES HER CONFESSIONS CARDIO, COCKTAILS AND SLEEP

ARTICLE JORDANA KLEIN CANDICE CUNNINGHAM BELIEVES THAT STICKING TO YOUR WORKOUT AND DIET PLANS ARE CRUCIAL TO SEEING RESULTS, BUT SHE ALSO KNOWS THAT A BIT OF MODERATION MAY BE JUST AS IMPORTANT! Without a splurge here and there, it's difficult to refrain from straying completely from your goals. As a personal trainer in the Atlanta area, Candice works with clients both one on one and in small groups, even focusing on pre- and postnatal fitness training and corrective exercise, and she loves what she does! She trains clients both remotely and from CYB FITLAB, located at 3098 Piedmont Road, 1st Floor, Atlanta. Now, back to those splurges! Here are a few of Candice's confessions about the world of fitness. Shhh ... we won't tell yours!

You can’t take sleep for granted anymore. With her schedule, Candice doesn’t have as much time to sleep as before, but she knows that sleep regulates hormone levels and helps your metabolism. It also helps with the recovery and resting process and can even help with weight loss. Cardio is not the only thing you can do to lose weight. For many, you may feel good after a long run, but it’s the combination of lifting weights to tone and what you eat that matters, too! Candice knows cardio may be a fallback, but, just like those splurges, it’s best in moderation! 34

Vinings Lifestyle | January 2018

Pizza, frozen yogurt and a good cocktail, these are her go-tos, but in small doses, of course—it’s the 80/20 rule. She’s a big fan of Antico’s white pizza, Oreos and cookies and cream on her froyo and a cold glass of white wine—just as a treat— but a good treat, nonetheless!
