Inside CB2 Exec's stylish, edgy and eclectic holiday home!


This gorgeous 100-year-old home in the Chicago suburbs belongs to Ryan Turf, the president of furniture and decor brand CB2 that he shares with his wife, Jessica, the principal of Jessica Turf Design and their three children. What really draws them to this home is the floor-to-ceiling windows, a large fireplace in the living room and the plaster molding. Both in the business and passionate about designs, they eventually decided on a palette of black and white for their home. The results? An abode with high contrast colors with a modern, edgy and eclectic flair. Let's check it out, shall we?

Personal Training Business From Home - A Potentially Lucrative Enterprise!


This post is provided by Super Groups.

Beautiful people are everywhere, but especially on TV. We, as a society, are bombarded with images of beautiful, in shape people. Advertisers utilize beautiful people to sell their products because they know such a strategy is very practical. 

Fitness itself is indeed a very lucrative business because it feeds off of our obsession with physical perfection. Although it generally depends on the personality, most people care about how they look. Therefore, they actively engage in some sort of exercise, whether it is strength training, aerobics, or a combination of the two. Unfortunately, some people may struggle with their weight and may need the assistance of a personal trainer. It is not always easy to get in shape without professional assistance because losing weight is actually quite complicated. A professional guidance of a personal trainer may come in handy.

Being a personal trainer is a useful profession because of a simple economic principle, namely that there is always a demand for such a provider. There are always people who need the guidance of a personal trainer. Designing the right eating and training protocol is often one of the services that can be provided by a personal trainer.

Personal training can also be a lucrative business even when conducted from home. Even if there is a start up cost to buy the necessary gym equipment for a home gym, in the long run, there is a lot of money to be made. Most gym memberships are quite costly. A better alternative is choosing to come to a personal trainer who works out of a home gym. Although some gyms may offer free personal training, their personal trainers are amateurish at best. Even though a home gym may be more expensive than a beginner gym that also comes with free personal training, a home gym personal trainer ensures that there is less, if any, gym intimidation. This may be very useful to a beginner who is just starting a fitness journey.

One advice to a home gym personal trainer is to buy a sufficient array of fitness equipment, hopefully at a bargain price. Without the right combination of fitness equipment, making money from personal training will be a challenge. However, a decent array of dumbbells, a few mats and a few jump ropes should be enough for a decent workout. A skilled personal trainer can design a good fitness program with a limited amount of equipment.

It is important that a personal trainer working from home purchases a liability insurance. This liability insurance is a good protection against client unintended injury. Liability insurance is defined as a compensation to the client by an outside company just in case an injury occurs. One company that sells such an insurance is Insure Fitness Group. This company sells insurance at reduced rates. On their website, they offer insurance rates starting as low as $15.49 per month. Insure Fitness Group, located at Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, specifically caters to fitness professionals who do not work out of a commercial gym. Just like a medical professional who is trained to be a specialist in their field, a personal trainer working from home is in need of liability insurance.
