Strongtown Fitness is Southbury's #1 Gym!
I sat down with Dan at his gym in Southbury, Connecticut last week to understand the bold claim that "Strongtown Fitness is Southbury's #1 Gym!" Apparently if you're looking for a gym near Southbury, CT this is the place to go.
Apparently I was right. As I sat down with Dan at Strongtown Fitness located on 1432 Old Waterbury Rd in Southbury, CT I noticed something different than any other gym I've been to in the past. I heard talking...
People were actually talking to one another. It wasn't the awkward gym setting with people with everyone having their headphone in and scarcely even making eye contact. I realized then, that this gym was something special. It was less of a gym, fitness center or health club and more of a community.
More than a Health Club, Fitness Center and Exercise Classes!
I figured that maybe the people in here were just friends and joined together. Then I noticed a new person "dropping in" for an exercise class come into the gym. Immediately, everyone wanted to know who he was and where he was from! Dan told me that the community aspect of CrossFit Strongtown is why people stay with their newly adopted healthy habits.
If a customer was to choose between your gym and 3 other gyms in Southbury, Oxford or Middlebury - Why Choose You?
Dan, the owner of Strongtown Fitness explains:
We have a lot of competition nearby. Our biggest competition is actually the big box gyms like Planet Fitness, Fitness Edge and since there's a Planet Fitness right on Main St South - it's hard to get people to try a free class here.
Once people try a free class, they realize what they've been missing!
We just need to get people in the door. Sometimes people see our photos of "ripped" women or buff guys lifting heavy weight and get intimidated. They think that they'll get hurt... Which they won't.
I asked why not? Isn't it more dangerous to lift heavy weight?
It's only dangerous to lift heavy weight with bad form. Heck, it's dangerous to do anything with bad form, but at our gym - no matter what fitness class you take - a coach is watching you. Our coaches are keeping you in line, working out with the right form. They check to make sure your back is in proper alignment during exercises like the squat, deadlight and power clean. We also check to make your knees are in the correct position during workouts.
It sounded like Dan could talk about correct workout form for an eternity!
How does your Free Fitness Class Work?
I've taken free exercise classes before so I explained to Dan that there's always a catch when you sign up for a free yoga class, free personal training session, free gym pass or something along those lines.
Dan let me know that they offer a 100% Free, No Obligation, Class to either their CrossFit Classes or Academy Classes by simply going to their gym website and scheduling a time to attend.
He also explained that trying a gym class isn't like sitting down a personal trainer. "We're not going to be selling you a expensive membership! You're going to figure out after one class if this is the right place for you to get in shape or not".
Where your Gym Located Located?

Who is CrossFit Strongtown For?
Dan explained that many people assume that they need to get in shape before going to a CrossFit gym, but in fact it's much the opposite. When people get in shape by themselves they often establish very poor movement patterns which can actually lead to injury.
CrossFit Strongtown has something for everyone:
It's for people who want to...
Strongtown Fitness is Southbury's #1 Gym because it's not just a place to lose weight, get healthy or get in shape - instead it's the place to all that and more while making friends along the way!

CrossFit 203 of Danbury is your friendly neighborhood gym
I recently interviewed Melissa and Kirk Reed, the owners of CrossFit 203 of Danbury to find out why their gym in Danbury is so popular. I might have to take them up on their Free Trial Class too!
There's a big difference between most gyms in Danbury, CT and CrossFit 203 of Danbury. For example the Fitness Edge of Danbury is where most people to go not to work out! They pay their $20 membership and head to the gym when they feel motivated. At CrossFit 203 of Danbury it's not just a gym to belong to so you can say you "I belong to a gym". CrossFit 203 of Danbury is a community of people who have made their fitness a priority in their lives.
They have many different kinds of classes including Bootcamp Style Fitness Classes that involve no barbell work and are an excellent way to get in shape without lifting the heavy weights that CrossFit is known for. CrossFit 203 of Danbury also has endurance classes that involve a ton of different endurance based exercises without the heavy weight lifting.
If you're into the heavy weight lifting they have an Olympic barbell class that meets weekly! The most popular classes at the gym are their CrossFit Classes. They have a healthy schedule of class times that is convenient for the working families.
CrossFit 203 is located in Danbury, Fairfield County, Connecticut at 16 Beaver Brook Rd, Danbury, CT 06810. You can find their gym on the map below.
Mel Schwartz - Marriage Counselor and Therapist in Westport CT is interviewed by our Westport Review Team!
We recently expanded outside of of the Danbury area into Fairfield, Westport and Norwalk. This week we interviewed Mel Schwartz, a Marriage Counselor out of Westport, Connecticut. He really impressed us with his professional accomplishments and the fact that he was featured on a Ted Talk!
Mel talked to us about many different things, but most importantly we interviewed him about his therapeutic services. Mel Schwartz offers a variety of different therapies including:
You can contact Mel Schwartz Marriage Counselor directly at 203-227-5010 or look at his website.
Mel Schwartz and his Therapeutic Approach:
I find that being wed to a single therapeutic approach—psychoanalytic, Jungian, or cognitive behavioral therapy, for example—would be limiting. I tailor my therapeutic engagement in a more customized, bespoke way by integrating multiple disciplines, which provide me many tools in my toolbox. I trust that we’ll find the most effective method for you early in our work together. My perspectives have been very greatly influenced by innovative thinkers from outside of my field. My orientation is toward systems thinking, philosophy, and the emerging sciences, which allow me to facilitate cutting edge methods into my practice.
I don’t diagnose my clients other than for insurance requirements. Diagnosing tends to turn people into objects, We all struggle at times and I resist the practice of labeling and pathologizing people. My intention is to connect with empathy yet offer insight, and guidance when helpful. I invite you into a co-participatory yet compassionate process and help clarify and facilitate your path forward. I use all of the skills, experience, and knowledge available to me to ensure that you’ll achieve your goals.
I believe in everyone’s potential and devote myself to helping people manifest their possibilities. My work isn’t truly work—it’s my most passionate calling. I am proactive and share any part of my own journey that may be helpful in assisting others.
Unlike many therapists, I don’t simply focus on your childhood and past. Although we need to appreciate and frame your life experiences, I focus more on providing you with the tools to become the master of your life. Freeing yourself from the experiences and imprint of your past is altogether achievable.
If you have a goal you wish to achieve and have the willful intention to do so, there’s no reason we shouldn’t succeed.

One thing that they learned more than anything else was how to put things into perspective. Interviewing Mel Schwartz Marriage Counselor was like interviewing a professional athlete, but of the mind. He had so many tips, tools and tricks that he shared with our team that we are forever thankful for his time and energy!

Newtown Landscaping Pro is interviewed by The Danbury Review!
This week we interviewed Newtown Landscaping Pro located in Newtown, Connecticut. They have been in business for the last 3 years and work with over 30 homeowners across Sandy Hook and Newtown. Newtown is the biggest town in Connecticut in terms of acreage! Chris the owner of Newtown Landscaping Pro tells me that they haven't scratched the surface when it comes to how many clientele they provide property maintenance for.
What kinds of Lawn Services do you offer in Sandy Hook?
In both Newtown and Sandy Hook we offer a complete variety of lawn services for your every need including:

We Interview Kent Lawn & Landscaping from Kent, Connecticut.
Today I met with David from Kent Lawn & Landscaping in Kent, Connecticut to learn about his new lawn care business. David is a younger guy who's been working his tail off for a larger company for years. David's father works for the landscaping company as well. His whole family depends on having enough work to put food on the table.
The problem is - sometimes there isn't enough work.
David decided to start Kent Lawn & Landscaping that focuses on providing quality lawn services to the homeowners in Kent, Connecticut. The lawn services he offers includes:
What's the difference between your Lawn Care Company and other Landscapers in Kent?
The biggest different between Kent Lawn & Landscaping and other lawn care companies is our attention to detail. We're a newer company and looking to make a name for ourselves.

MR. Tree Service of Fairfield, CT 06825 offers Affordable Tree Removal!
I met with Mr. Tree Service of Fairfield which is located in Fairfield Connecticut in the Fairfield County area and talked about his new tree service. He recently moved up Fairfield Connecticut after running a successful tree company in Naples, FL for 25 years. One thing that separates his Tree Service Company from the other companies around the Fairfield area is that he's 100% lisenced and insured.
Many homeowners don't realize that after Hurricane Sandry ripped through Connecticut that everyone had a get rich quick scheme of becoming a tree service. Many regular contractors with little to no experience felling trees became "tree services" and got into tree work.
You can visit his website at www.treeservicefairfield.com or give him a call directly at 203-242-7510.
Do you do Tree Removal in Fairfield, Connecticut?
Removing Trees is one of our specialties. We have a highly trained and experienced tree cutting crew that handles tricky removals from many homeowners throughout Fairfield Connecticut. Doing a tree removal yourself is one of the most dangerous things we see people do.
Take tree removal seriously and hire a professional!
Does your Tree Company do Tree Stump Grinding?
Tree Stump Grinding is one of our core services at Mr. Tree Service of Fairfield because after you cut down a tree you'll still have the stump sticking out of the ground. I like the call the stump, the second half of the tree because it's like doing another job.
We bring this big machine in, the stump grinder and hover it over the stump as it slowly chips away at the stump. You'll certainly get a lot of wood chips as we remove the stump.

WiltonDentist.com is new to Wilton, Connecticut and Already Making an Impact!
I sat down with Dr. Glenn MacFarlane of WiltonDentist.com on Friday to learn about the new dental office located in Wilton, Connecticut. There are many different kinds of Dentists in Wilton from Cosmetic Dentists, Pediatric Dentists, Orthodontists, but never had I heard before about Sedation Dentists.
Apparently, this new form of dentistry - sedation dentistry has been around for a long time. They simply give you a little pill and do the procedure then you wake up when the work is done. No laughing gas, no needles (I can't stand needles) and no stress.
Dr. Mac who's originally from New Jersey has been performing cosmetic dentistry and sedation dentistry for a number of years. He's got an extensive background in the field and a wealth of experience fixing smiles for pageant winners.
You can reach their dental office at 203-567-4866 or visit them online at WiltonDentist.com
Dr. Glenn MacFarlane, What's your Dental Background?
For the past 20 years, Glenn MacFarlane has been the official Cosmetic Dentist to the Miss New Jersey and Mrs. New Jersey America pageants
Glenn MacFarlane, D.M.D., referred to as “Doc Smile” by his pageant winners for his award winning cosmetic dental work, is an aesthetic focused dentist. He has dedicated over 32 years to brightening smiles across the country.
A lifelong New Jersey resident, Dr. MacFarlane was born in Newark and grew up in Belleville and North Arlington. He attended the Seton Hall Prep School in South Orange and later earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the Fairleigh Dickson University in Madison. His Doctor of Dental Medicine degree was obtained from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1985.
Dr. MacFarlane now performs expert cosmetic dentistry in Wilton, CT and his other office in NJ. Using the latest technology available combined with cutting edge restorative dentistry materials, he is able to offer complete smile restoration.
Dr. Glenn “Doc Smile” MacFarlane is part of several prestigious dental organizations including:
American Dental Association
Besides working on aspiring pageant contenders, Dr. MacFarlane is proud to say that working class people who simply want to impress their friends and family constitute the majority of his clients. Little known fact - Dr. MacFarlane has lectured in over 16 countries for a prominent dental laser company while authoring smile enhancement articles in National Dental and Leisure Publications.
Dr. Glenn "Doc Smile" MacFarlane has been featured in many publications including:
Outside of recreating wonderful smiles, meticulously placing dental implants or treating sleep apnea, Dr. MacFarlane spends time with his two daughters, Perri and Christina, who have all grown up in the blink of an eye.
Looking for Martial Arts Classes in Brookfield, Connecticut?
Today I met with Rick from Family Martial Arts Center, a local Martial Arts School in Brookfield, CT 06804. Their studio offers kids classes for a variety of disciplines including Taekwondo, Karate and much more. I'm not an expert in throwing punches or kicking, but after sitting down with Rick for an hour I learned that FMAC is much more than that.
Family Martial Arts Center or FMAC has been a part of the local Brookfield Community for years. They regular have Karate Classes for Kids, Teens and Adults.
How many Karate Classes in Brookfield are offered weekly?
Karate Classes, Martial Arts Classes, Taekwondo Classes, the list goes on and on. I learned during our conversation that many times the words karate, martial arts and taekwondo mean the same thing to many parents, but those different arts are much different in the world of martial arts.
I thought that Karate and Martial Arts was simply the same thing, but that Taekwondo was something completely different, similar to Muay Thai. Rick, the owner of FMAC corrected The Danbury Review many times during our conversations about this martial arts dojo (as I called it) that there's a big difference between the different kinds of techniques.
I asked him repeatedly what term is used the most frequently for this martial arts school, because like the terms taekwondo or karate, the words school, dojo and studio often mean the same thing. He explained that many people are looking for "Martial Arts Schools in Brookfield" but often the same people search for "Taekwondo Academies in Brookfield" or "Karate Dojos in Brookfield".
Our conversation was long and confusing, but what I learned is that Rick really knows his stuff. He's been working with kids at FMAC for a number of years and has a great group that he works with on a regular basis.
Often times kids will enroll in their very first martial arts class and work with FMAC until their teen years. He says it's a wonderful thing seeing kids he's worked with as toddlers grow up with the help of martial arts discipline.
Where in Brookfield is Family Martial Arts Center Located?
Family Martial Arts Center is conveniently located on 14 Del Mar Dr in Brookfield, CT. It's in the same plaza as John's Pizza, Computer Trouble Shooters and Massage Mend Me. Del Mar Drive is off of Federal Road in Brookfield.
Rick explains that many of the kids from New Milford, Bethel and sometimes Danbury attend his classes as well. It seems that parents will drive a little ways for a good instructor like Rick.
You can learn more about FMAC's Class offerings, Class Schedule or Try a FREE Martial Arts Class by visiting his website at www.family-mac.com or calling 203-441-0808.
The Danbury Review Interviews Luke Huizinga, Owner of Mechanical Detail in Southbury, Connecticut.
I sat down with Luke Huizinga of Mechanical Detail Plumbing in Southbury, CT for our interview. Luke is a straight forward, warm, friendly individual who is loved by many. He's a competent business owner, and Luke Huizinga won the Commit To Be Fit Challenge over at Prime Time Fitness which is actually how we got into contact.
Luke is a local plumber, father and often takes time to work in the community. His small plumbing company has just grown to 3 employees as he does the right work for the right people. He can be found fixing ac units, repairing heaters, troubleshooting boilers or simply turning on the water for someone who thought their washing machine was broken. Although Luke will shy away from Appliance Repair he certainly will help anyone that needs anything repaired in their home.
He's a member of PCNG, a local networking group and the other members swear by his handyman skills. He's a millennial, but a hard working smart one at that. Hopefully we'll see a new breed of hard working millennial in the upcoming years.. Hopefully.

An Interview with Growing Solutions Landscaping & Design in Ridgefield, Connecticut
Many people are searching for Landscape Designers in Connecticut especially in the lower Fairfield County towns such as Ridgefield, Westport, New Canaan, Wilton and Fairfield. It seems like every landscaper out there is now calling themselves a landscape design specialist.
I sat down with Chris & Paul of Growing Solutions Landscaping & Design to get their expert opinion on finding the right landscape or garden designer to work with. Their Full Service Landscaping Company services all of Fairfield County and is located in Ridgefield, CT.
How do you find the right Landscape Designer in CT?
Honestly, it can be a troublesome task finding the right landscape designer near you. We're often speaking with a prospective homeowners who've already talked with half a dozen "designers" who have remarked that they've never even sat down with the designer on staff. We've got a full-time landscape designer, Brid, who works with us and collaborates with all our clients.
First and foremost you'll want to make sure that if you're talking with a landscaping company that they have a full-time designer on staff. The second thing I'd watch for is their certifications. It's expensive to maintain these certifications and most lawn care professionals don't keep theirs up for that very reason. Paul and I are both NOFA accredited organic land care professionals. I'm also a Connecticut State Licensed Arborist and Paul is a Accredited Turf Manager. Paul also carries a Connecticut State Custom Grounds License. Our Landscape Designer, Brid Craddock is a Connecticut Master Gardener and is serving as the president of the Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Professional Landscape Designers.
Often times you'll see landscape companies without the slightest bit of certification. It's unfortunate to see homeowners get taken advantage of by smooth talking lawn maintenance guys. It's not rocket science to lay down a set of new patio pavers, but when a heavy rain storm comes you'll find out who is an irrigation expert.
Where can a Ridgefield Homeowner Find New Landscaping Design Ideas?
I'm not at all surprised by that question! We actually field many questions about landscaping ideas or garden design ideas on a weekly basis. Often times people aren't 100% sure what they want. We always suggest to hop on pinterest to find some inspiration or sit down with our Landscape Designer. Many homeowners throughout Connecticut wonder the same thing, but often don't get a chance to find those answers.

Looking for a Landscaper in Brookfield, CT?
Today I met with Corby from Pro Landscaping of Brookfield. Their Lawn Care Company offers many services including mowing, trimming, pruning, mulching, bed maintenance and much more. He was right on time to the interview unlike most of the other landscapers I've had the pleasure of sitting down with in the past.
He helps many residents in Brookfield, Southbury, Newtown and other Fairfield County towns with their property maintenance.
When did you start Pro Landscaping of Brookfield?
I started Pro Landscaping of Brookfield two years ago and we're rapidly growing due to the hard work our team has been putting in. One of the best choices I've ever made was handpicking my staff. I'm lucky to have such a great team to work with on a daily basis. Landscaping Companies make or break depending on how good their staff members are. Many of them reside locally in nearby towns such as Danbury, Newtown and Oxford.
What's the toughest thing you went through when opening up Pro Landscaping of Brookfield?
Opening up any business is difficult. There's always hoops to jump through and often unexpected obstacles. We've been more fortunate than most Lawn Care Companies in Connecticut because of my personal business experience. Having business experience in the past definitely gave Pro Landscaping of Brookfield a distinct advantage over the competition.
Wrapping things up with Pro Landscaping of Brookfield, Connecticut
Corby was a great guy to get to know. He and I traded laughs as he explained the humble beginnings of Pro Landscaping of Brookfield. Not all Landscapers are full service. He explained that Full Service meant that he not only offers mowing and trimming like the other landscapers in Brookfield, but he always offers mulching, pruning, weeding, mosquito control, property maintenance, tick spraying and much more. See all the service offered at www.prolandscapingbrookfield.com! If you're a resident of the Town of Brookfield you should definitely give Pro Landscaping of Brookfield a call. They've got the one stop solution for all your lawn care needs.

Appliance Repair Pros of Danbury are here to help!
Appliance Repair Pros of Danbury is a local appliance repair company. They handle all almost everything including refrigerators, dishwashers, stoves, washing machines, dryers and other kitchen appliances.
Many people throughout the Greater Danbury area rely on them for all their repairs.
What is unique about the Appliance Repair Pros?
The one thing that separates the Appliance Repair Pros from the rest of the repairmen across Connecticut is that we don't come out unless we can fix it. Most appliance repair companies just try to collect as many service call fees as possible.
We focus less on collecting service fees, but rather focus on repairing just the appliances we can.
Let's say your refrigerator goes dead. Most repair guys will take advantage of the urgency that goes along with all your food going bad and slap you with a high service fee. If you give the Appliance Repair Pros of Danbury a call instead we'll go through a thorough phone conversation to make sure you're not just better off buying a new fridge.
What parts of Connecticut do you service?
We get many service calls from not only Danbury, but surrounding towns. Our team regularly repairs subzero and wolf refrigerators in Ridgefield, Connecticut. The New Fairfield area also reaches out to our appliance repairmen for service. We get a couple calls from Brookfield, CT, but they are primarily looking for someone to come out next day.
We do next day service if we have room. Given our growing popularity in the Greater Danbury region we don't always have room.
What's hardest about being in the Home Appliance Repair Industry?
Definitely the hardest thing about repairing appliances for a living is letting people know that you can't fix their appliance. We try avoid this awkward conversation in the first place by having a thorough talk over the phone.
9 out of 10 times we can repair the given appliance, but once in a while there is just nothing we can do. In that case we need to let the homeowner know that they'll have get a new refrigerator or dishwasher for example.
What's the hardest Appliance to Repair?
GE Appliances are by far the hardest to repair. Often they come with touch screen monitors that we can't usually fix. Those monitors tend to break rather quickly and only can be fixed by a specialized GE technician.
If you're going to invest in a General Electric Appliance make sure to get the highest warranty.

Quality Dental of Danbury is much more than a Cosmetic Dentist!
I was searching for a Danbury Dentist the other day to interview. I was floored with how many choices came up when I typed in "Dentist Danbury CT", but I scanned through to see who had it all.
I decided to setup an Interview with Dr. Tagliarini of Quality Dental of Danbury. His dental office was tucked away on North Street in Danbury offers bonding, crows, dental implants, fillings, headache treatment, oral cancer screenings, orthodontic treatment, tooth extractions, periodontal disease therapy, and so much more.
Dental Implants, Headache Treatment, TMJ Treatment, Fillings, Bonding, Crowns... What more could you ask for?
Needless to say, I was really impressed with how many dental services Dr. Tagliarini was able to offer. He had so much passion when he talked about fillings, headache treatment, and dental implants. Clearly, Dr. Tagliarini has dedicated much of his life becoming one of the top notch Dentists in Connecticut as a whole. If you're looking for a Dentist in Danbury CT then just look up Quality Dental of Danbury!
People travel from throughout Connecticut to his office for his expertise in TMJ Headache Treatment, and Cosmetic Dentistry. I never really knew about TMJ, or what it was, but apparently people suffer from these terrible headaches for years. Through his dental expertise he is able to cure TMJ / TMD permanently.
Dental Associates Danbury CT
Dental Associates Danbury CT is another nearby Dental office. I tried calling them as well, but couldn't get in touch with a dentist there to schedule an interview.
Looking for Fence Installation in Connecticut?
I met with Adam, the owner of Connecticut Fence and Landscaping LLC which is out of Brookfield, CT. CT Fence & Landscaping provides Fencing, Landscaping and Masonry for much of Connecticut. After coming out of the Marine Core Adam knew that he wanted to start his own business. At first he only handled landscaping, but one day one of his clients asked him to a build a fence.
The local homeowner who tasked Adam with building him a fence fell in love with the results. Adam started building fences for homeowners throughout Brookfield, and that's how Connecticut Fence and Landscaping started.
Connecticut Fence and Landscaping is setup to handle every job in house without having to depend on outside contractors. He has a 2 Masonry crews that stay busy year round working on pools, patios, outdoor kitchens and that kind of stuff. Adam also has landscaping crews that handle bigger planting jobs, landscaping and a bit of maintenance.
Connecticut Fence is doing much more than just regular fencing. They are breaking into Glass Fencing, Gate Automation, and do all the welding on site.
During the winter like any Landscaping business they handle snow plowing, and snow removal.
What's the toughest thing you went through when opening up Connecticut Fencing and Landscaping LLC?
The toughest thing I went through when opening Connecticut Fence and Landscaping was definitely the time away from my family. We're still in growth mode here at Connecticut Fence, and I'm working nights, Saturdays and Sundays.
We may have 18-20 full-time employees here at CT Fencing, but we're just getting started. Recently, we've gotten into gate automation and glass fencing.
Whats the toughest part of having a Fencing & Landscaping Business in 2017?
Competition is growing. When I first started with fencing there was just three of us. Now there are tons of landscapers that also do fencing. The added competition brings the overall costs of the work we do down while the price of trucks, gas and rent is always going up.
Not matter our costs I always make sure to do the job 100%. The outstanding work we provide sets us apart from the rest of the competition in CT. I've got a lot of friends in the industry; they give me work because they know I do good work not because they are friends of mine.
If a Customer was to choose between your CT Fencing and 3 others just like - why should they choose yours?
The best thing about Connecticut Fencing and Landscaping is that our loyalty is unparalleled. If a customer from 5 years ago calls me to complain about a fence post that is leaning then I'll make it my priority to get over there.
I won't sleep well unless I know that my customers are taken care of. Growing up my father was in the car detailing business, and his business grew through his high quality work alone. Here at CT Fencing we believe in the same values: high quality work, fair pricing, and lifetime customer service.
Wrapping things up with Connecticut Fencing & Landscaping
Meeting Adam of Connecticut Fence & Landscaping was a refreshing experience. He built a great fencing business from scratch, but hasn't let the growth of his business change what he does on a daily basis. Adam is on site to make sure the jobs are done by CT Fencing's high standards. He's working weekends, nights, and continually reinvesting into the business.

Looking for Landscaping in Danbury CT?
The Danbury Review interviews Corby Hocker, The owner of The Grounds Guys of Danbury. The Grounds Guys offer lawn maintenance, and full service landscaping to the local Danbury area including Southbury, Brookfield, Bethel, Newton, Sandy hook and more. Corby had a very interesting story as he was traveling the world as an investment banker not too long ago. He had been doing landscaping as a hobby his entire life, but only recently did he take his passion for the outdoors and turn it into a reality.
Being an investment banker meant much time away from his family, and even less time outdoors. Nowadays, he's a The Grounds Guys franchisee, and spends his time building a business he loves. Corby can be found planting shrubs, gardens, perennials, annuals, trees, and cleaning up after storms. When he's not caring for his clients throughout the Greater Danbury area you'll be able to find him on the soccer field, basketball court or skating around the hockey rink with his energetic four kids!
When did you start the Grounds Guys of Danbury?
I started The Grounds Guys in March of last year, and we're growing rapidly with the help of our team. Becoming a part of The Grounds Guys was one of the best choices I've ever made. The Grounds Guy's core values were right in line with mine, and the franchise provides a ton of support including the back office, marketing and brand recognition.
Cara McArdle joined The Grounds Guys team as a Design & Marketing expert, both graphical and garden design. She's equally skilled in creating our marketing materials and designing/installing flower and vegetable gardens for our clients. We've recruited some great people over the past year, but are always looking for hard workers who have a passion for providing high quality service.
What's the toughest thing you went through then opening the Grounds Guys of Danbury?
Hiring the right people isn't the easiest thing to do. The weather isn't always sunny and warm, and the days aren't always short. We have high requirements for our employees including drug testing. The hardest thing for us was finding good help. Today's new culture is different, and hard workers are definitely hard to come by. But I feel great about the team I have, know they have the same values for quality service that I do, and we are ready for spring.
If a customer was looking for landscaping in Danbury and had to choose between the Grounds Guys and 3 other businesses just like it - why choose yours?
The customer service that The Grounds Guys is able to give to each and every customer. There are a lot of landscaping services around, but not many that have a standard of service required by a parent company. Those standards combined with my own personal commitment to building a trusted, reliable, high quality landscaping business are what set us apart. You know when a uniformed, scheduled Grounds Guy landscaper comes to your home you can expect a very high standard of service. The reviews on our Facebook page confirm that. Every customer matters. If there is a rain or other delay the customer is notified of that. I do exactly what I say I'm going to do. Superior customer service combined with quality service is the name of my game.
Some services sell on price, and you know, you get what you pay for. I focus on the value you get from my services. I want you to feel like the investment was worth it, and it will show in your landscape. That’s what makes me excited to get out there every day.
There is plenty of business around the Danbury area, and I know my clients have a choice. When they give the Grounds Guys a chance to meet their home care needs, our clients are happy with the results and continue as our clients. We can’t wait to meet more of our neighbors in the Greater Danbury area and show what the Grounds Guys can do.
In 6 months from now, where would you like the Grounds Guys Business to be?
Double in size! I'd like us to be at 2 trucks, and 2 full-time crews. There is plenty of business around the Danbury area, and many people are settling for sub-par lawn service. Our team can't wait until the Greater Danbury area realizes what they're missing out on!

Corby was a real stand up guy. Learning that he was traveling the world as an investment banker, but changed his whole career around to be able to spend time with his family and work outside was impressive. Making a big career change while needing to support a family is admirable.

Keeping all the deadlines. When we get a rain storm that continues for the week it can difficult to find time to do all the accounts. Balancing time with the family while trying to build a business can also be difficult.

Looking for Personal Training in New Fairfield CT?
I met with Will from Will Power Fitness in New Fairfield. Will Power Fitness handles all the personal training at Prime Time Fitness located in New Fairfield, CT. Will got his start while training friends & family during his college years for what he refers to as "lunch money". After graduating College he went on to work as a Sports & Fitness Director for a local non-profit.
After spending a couple years as a Sports, Fitness & Recreation Director he got married, and wanted to start a family. Will knew that he couldn't start a family in Fairfield County with a non-profit salary. He decided to renew his National Academy of Sports Medicine Personal Training Certification to start training full-time.
Will Power Fitness wasn't born just yet. Will started at a local "group personal training" studio called Earthfit. After working there for 10 months he explained that it was time to move on because there wasn't as much growth potential as he was led on to believe there was.
He then joined Revive Fitness's branch at World's Gym in Brewster, NY. Within 3 days of working personal training in Brewster a Training Manager spot opened up in New Fairfield. Will made the hard choice to come back to New Fairfield and train within a mile of his previous employer, Earthfit. "It wasn't my ideal situation, but I had to take the promotion for my family's sake," explained Will.
Will soon realized that the situation he was in at Revive Fitness wasn't much different than at Earthfit. He was met with constant backlash as he tried to grow the business in different directions. Will stuck with Revive to learn as much as he could about running a personal training business and sales.
Instead of repeating the same process Will decided to offer to buy out Revive Fitness. A short few months later... Will Power Fitness was born.
What made you want to get into the Personal Training Business?
I value helping people. I loved my time working with youth, and always felt better at the end of the day. After having two back to back terrible employers, and decided to run with it myself. I wish I did this earlier. Will Power Fitness is so much different than any other personal training business in New Fairfield, Danbury or even in Connecticut. I had been a die-hard Crossfit Junkie for years, and loved the community that they had created.
Taking what I've learned at in Crossfit classes, personal training conferences, and knowing exactly how NOT to setup a personal training business gave me a real plan to follow. I knew after working at Revive Fitness that I didn't want to have crazy contracts. I wanted to seal my personal training clients with a handshake instead of a lawyer-ed up piece of paper. I wanted to give all my nutritional information up for free instead of charge for it. Most of all I wanted to do things my way, and give people the results that they pay for.
What's the toughest thing that you went through when opening Will Power Fitness?
One thing is for sure, my previous employer Earthfit. She wasn't too keen on me opening up a Personal Training business of my own right next door to hers. In fact, her sister wrote bad reviews on my social media pages. She slammed me on her facebook right after I left which was expected, because that's how it is in the personal training world.
I can't even tell you the half the grief I got from my previous employer, Earthfit. I got phone calls about my website that I couldn't say this, or I couldn't say that. I'd get letters from her lawyer threatening me not to violate my non-disclosure agreement. Heck, I'll probably get some crap for this participating in this review!
That's no problem though, because I know if you've got haters than you're doing something right!
If a customer was to choose between Will Power Personal Training, and 3 other businesses just like it - why choose yours?
You get me! That is the number one reason. Will Power Fitness combines many different aspects of training into one comprehensive 1 on 1 training program. You've got a dynamic warm up that specifically targets the weak & inhibited muscles with activation while stretching the over-active muscles. Following the warm up you've got a 45 minute personal training session with me.
I'm a total form nazi! We'll have your exercise technique down pat within the first month of personal training. Whether you'd like to lose weight, gain muscle, trim, tone or all the above with Will Power Personal Training we'll achieve all of that and more. Little do you know, but during the training session I'll be employing behavior modification techniques to change your habits, mindset, and empower you to be the best version of yourself. After our training session we'll do mobility to further stretch those over-active muscle groups, and allow you to recover from our workout session.
I've been to Crossfit, worked at "Group Personal Training" studios, and I can tell you with confidence that there is not another program like Will Power Personal Training. We give it all to you, the corrective exercise, powerful workouts, behavior coaching, and mobility infused cool downs.
One thing was missing from Will Power Fitness however... The community. The reason bootcamps, crossfits, and other group personal training gyms are so effective is that they instill a cult-like atmosphere. I'm not saying Cult in a bad way. I totally drank the cool-aid while I was throwing 275 pounds over my head at Crossfit.
However, after reading extensively about behavior modification, habit creation, and psychology I realized that being part of a group was one of the biggest factors to secure positive behavior change. So now I offer a kettlebell class which is free for all my personal training clients.
The Kettlebell class meets on friday's at 6:15am, and 7:15am and so far I've received great feedback about it.

Will's lengthy story about the origins of Will Power Fitness was certainly interesting. He gives a lot to his clients, and enjoys what he does immensely.

Looking for a Handyman in Ridgefield, Wilton or Weston CT?
I met with Al of Handyman Pro of Fairfield County who handles handyman work throughout Ridgefield, Wilton, Weston and the rest of Fairfield County. He was in the trades industry for the 30 years, building new homes, fixing older homes, and restoring almost everything.
People looking for Carpentry Services call Al for many different needs from Windows, Cabinetry, and Hardwood Flooring to Lock Replacement, Doors, and Skylight Installation.
He’s your local jack of all trades Handyman who will handle any home improvement job.
What made you want to go into the Handyman Business?
People always need something fixed at home. Having 30 years of experience in the industry I knew that I could do right on every handyman job I received. Helping people in the community is a great feeling, and people really appreciate the fair price I give them.
What was the toughest thing about opening your Handyman Business in the Ridgefield, Wilton and Weston Areas?
Although I’ve lived in Ridgefield, Connecticut all my life the hardest thing about opening my Handyman business was getting my name out there.
I could tell you a hundred things that weren't hard! Now that Pro Handyman Pro of Fairfield County is off the ground the only thing that can be difficult is scheduling. I try to be as flexible as possible when it comes to timing my jobs, but sometimes jobs can take longer than expected.
If a customer was to choose between your Handyman Business, and 3 others just like it – why choose Handyman Pro of Fairfield County?
I’ve been in the trades for what seems like a million years, and I’ve seen it all. I’ve got the utmost confidence that I’ll be able to handle a job faster, and better than any other Handyman in the business.
There are a ton of people in the Handyman niche nowadays. A lot of them have gotten their start because of fixing things around their own house so they figure they could do it for others while making a couple bucks.
Handyman Pro of Fairfield County is different. I’ve been in the trades for the last 30 years, and moved into the handyman industry to help the local community. It’s hard finding a fair price these days. I get a ton of repeat customers, and referrals because of my honest pricing.

Looking for Athletic and Personal Development in CT?
I met with Keith Deyo the owner of The EDGE Performance Training located in the Danbury Sports Dome. The EDGE Performance Training works with youth athletes and their families by providing them with the tools and resources to maximize their genetic potential. Their unique training programs provide a three-dimensional scope of training to tap into and develop the body, mind and soul.
The EDGE Performance Training located in Danbury CT isn’t anything like just seeing a personal trainer. They specialize in working athletes both young and old. In order to ensure that every client is a perfect fit they even have a 90-minute qualification process that each athlete must undergo to be accepted into one of their programs. The athletes that are truly committed to outperforming their competition and ready to put in the work on and off the field will do very well in this initial qualification process.
If a customer was to choose between The EDGE Performance Training, and three other athletic training facilities in Connecticut – why choose yours?
The results we have had with our youth athletes does the talking. We do very little talking about the success of our athletes and taking all the credit for their success. We allow the athlete to shine and look forward to seeing them reach their goals and dreams. Being able to provide development mind, body, and soul while at the same time really getting to know our clients and their families sets us apart from other programs in our area.
A high percentage of our scholastic athletes often become Captains of their sports teams at school, excel in their classes with 3.5+ GPAs, and set huge goals each year to accomplish both physically and mentally. Personal development has become a huge part of our training, and we expect our clients to be committed to succeed both on the field, in their community and in the classroom. Our facility is a low risk high reward environment that breeds excellence while attracting some of the area’s most talented, hard working, committed, well rounded youth athletes and their families.
Training the body, mind, and soul is the key to having a huge impact all year long with our athletes. Follow us on Twitter @successct or find us on Facebook @TheEDGEPerformanceTraining or Instagram @The_EDGE_Performance to see our testimonials.
If you had to start over from Day 1 – What would you have done differently?
I would have focused 100% in my business rather than spending the first few years doing it part time. Getting a dedicated facility was the key to our growth. I wish I could go back as an athlete because at age 32 I was already 3 knee surgeries in, and told I could never play sports again. That’s not where I saw myself at that stage in life. I was wired for sport and competition and looked forward to being very active every day. All of the banging on my body throughout my childhood and as a 3 sport collegiate athlete had finally caught up.
That was tough, as a youth athlete I would of loved to have a facility like ours to train in. I also wish I had someone take the time to show me how important personal development and building up my mind was when I was growing up. Physically we are all limited, but mentally we are all unlimited. Mindset is the difference between the goods and the greats; the greats are mentally focused and willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want.
Wrapping it up with Keith of The EDGE Performance Training in Danbury CT
I had never actually been in the Danbury Sports Dome until my interview with Keith of The EDGE Performance Training. They’ve got an amazing facility there. The turf they use is low impact, and makes a huge difference for any athletes training directly on it. Keith speaks about his training system with such conviction and energy that you can easily tell that this is a true passion for him.

Looking for a Tree Service in Danbury CT?
I met with Bill of the Danbury Tree Service Pros. He's got two tree work crews, and a lot of history in the tree service industry. Bill has been working with his hands since the young age of 15, and personally supervises every tree removal that his tree service handles.
Bill has been in the Tree Business for over 20 years, and has seen it change from a tight knit group of professionals to a much larger and less professional group. After the storms of Irene and Sandy there have been tree services popping up on every corner in Danbury. This influx of "Tree Removal Experts" has created a bad name for the tree care industry, and resulted in a common distrust of tree care professionals.
Bill knows that it won't be easy to improve the name behind tree services in Danbury, but he's devoted to changing people's minds one tree job at a time.
If a Customer was to choose between L & T Tree Service, Barts Tree Service, and Torcasio Tree Service - why choose yours?
We've got nothing bad to say about L & T Tree Service, Bart's Tree Service or Torcasio. Each one of those professionals are great at what they do. Bart's handles some very tricky tree removals throughout Fairfield County as a whole. The guys from Land and Tree are great guys, and they put 100% into every tree removal they do. Torcasio Tree Service has been here almost as long as we have. Tony, the owner of Torcasio is a great guy, and he runs a serious tree work crew.
What it really comes down to when choosing the right tree service is price and availability. Bart's Tree Service, L & T, Torcasio Tree Service, and our Tree Service will all do a great job. Each one of us handles tricky tree removals, and other tree work. We don't really know any of the other tree services in town as well as these guys.
Do your research, look at each tree service's website, reviews, and make some calls. Compare quotes, and availability. We won't always be the lowest in town, but we'll make sure you get taken care of very quickly.
Wrapping things up with the Danbury Tree Service Pros
I know who I'll be calling for my next tree removal. Bill is a real stand up guy, and he's answered the previous question much difference than most people do. It was great meeting Bill, and learning about his tree service.

Looking for Wedding & Event Design, or Custom Wedding Invitations?
I met with Enza and Briana from Enza Events and Pretty in Print who share a space in Ridgefield, CT. It was like I was walking into my wife’s Pinterest board from our wedding when I arrived at their Wedding & Event Decor showroom located at 23 Danbury Road in Ridgefield.
Enza Events handles everything from Wedding Design, Floral Decor, Bar & Bat Mitzvah design, Event Decor, Furniture Rentals, Specialty Linens and much more.
Briana owns Pretty in Print which focuses more on printed materials and event branding. Items she offers include invitations, menus, posters, logos, escort cards, signage, and table numbers...all which are custom designed to match the event. She understands that people want the perfect invitation for their event and don’t want to settle for the stock options others offer. Wedding invitations in CT are a big deal!
What made you want to go into the Event Decor and Invitation Design Business?
Enza and Briana both worked for a big event design company in Westchester and decided to leave to fuel their creative juices. Their showroom in Ridgefield is new, but they’ve both been in the wedding planning, decor, and invitation business for 20 years.
Enza Events doesn’t just do wedding design and décor; Enza works with a lot of bar and bat mitzvah clients to design the perfect event for their families. One of the most popular services they provide is branding, because no one settles for the average bar or bat mitzvah.
If a customer was to choose between Enza Events & Pretty in Print or three other companies in the Wedding Design Niche – why choose yours?
Our event design & custom stationery business is completely personalized. We work in collaboration with our clients to discuss their vision so that we can make it a reality. The 100% customization is really what sets us apart from the competition. We have the resources to do huge events with a custom boutique feel while still dealing with our customers one on one.
Where would you like to see Enza Events and Pretty in Print in 6 months?
We’d like to have a production space up and running in about 6 months. We do big events, and having a second space to house everything nearby would be ideal. We’re working to grow both of our businesses, but want to maintain our personal touch.
We limit the amount of events we take in to make sure our clients receive the highest quality.
Wrapping things up with Enza Events & Pretty in Print of Ridgefield CT
If my wife was doing this interview, she’d be here for 6 hours! Their showroom is like a Pinterest board where all things wedding come to life. They’ve created such a beautiful environment with so much to see and experience. I was impressed with both Enza and Briana on how quickly they were able to get on their feet after leaving a big event décor company. They are both busy professionals, and take what they do to the next level.
Looking for Waxing in Danbury CT?
I met with Samantha who is the Manager of the European Wax Center of Danbury. The European Wax Center is a professional waxing spa dedicated to turning the sometimes unpleasant experience of hair removal into an amazing experience.
All the wax at the European Wax Center of Danbury CT is patented specifically for the European Wax Center. They don’t just do hair removal, but rather they educate their customers on the whole process of waxing, how to take better care of their skin, and keeping their skin healthy year round. They specialize in Revealing Beautiful Skin, in the atmosphere of a beautiful, elegant salon.
What made you want to go into the Hair Removal and Waxing Business?
Samantha started her career working for the Stamford, Connecticut location of the European Wax Center. She enjoys the brand and was promoted to become Manager of the European Wax Center of Danbury. The European Wax Center uses a specific comfort blend of wax that is a lot less painful than other hair removal shops, and a 4 step process that ensures skin care.
If a customer was to choose between the European Wax Center, and three other hair removal spas in the Danbury CT area – why choose yours?
We specialize in waxing, and only waxing. Our focus is to reveal our guest’s Beautiful Skin. We use a 100% beeswax formula, and have a unique 4 step process that really sets us apart. We educate our customers on how to take care of their skin at home so they can receive the full benefits of waxing.
We also give one FREE WAX to all of our first time customers! For women we offer a FREE eye brow, underarm, and bikini line waxing or a Brazilian at 50% off. We also service men, and offer FREE eyebrow, ear, or nose waxing for them.
What’s the toughest thing about having a business in Danbury?
Getting the WORD OUT! People are still very unaware of what we do here. We’re located right in the Stop and Shop Plaza on Newtown Road in Danbury, but people just don’t know exactly what the European Wax Center does. As we continue our marketing efforts, the word is definitely spreading about our wonderful Wax Service!
Besides offering a comfort specific wax blend, a 4 step waxing process, and lower rates, we also have the ambiance of the Wax Center. Our staff is friendly, welcoming, and are all certified aestheticians.
Finishing things up with the European Wax Center of Danbury
I was offered a free wax for helping the European Wax Center out with a feature on The Danbury Review, and I gladly obliged. I got a full back wax which may be too much information, but there was a significant pain difference between them and the other places I’ve been in Danbury CT. They did a great exfoliation beforehand, and gave me some great tips for skin care between waxes. I’ll definitely be heading back to the European Wax Center of Danbury.

Looking for more than just iPhone Repair in Brookfield?
I met with David Ruhs, owner of Brookfield CT’s uBreakiFix location. uBreakiFix is a repair everything franchise dedicated to changing the perspective that people have on throwing away their expensive electronics, buying new ones, and then repeating this vicious cycle that is continuing to fill up landfills throughout the country.
In Brookfield uBreakiFix literally fixes everything under the sun. They fix electronics in Brookfield from PS4s, XBOXs, Computers, TVs, iPhones, Androids, iPads, Tablets, and many more electronics. Everything that has a power cord can be fixed at uBreakiFix in Brookfield, Connecticut. The only thing they were unable to fix was a 1964 Tandberg audiotape reel because after scouring the internet for weeks they couldn’t find a replacement motor.
uBreakiFix attracts many people from Danbury, Bethel, New Fairfield, Ridgefield, Brewster, and as far up as Rocky Hill or Griswald. When I was invited into their back office I noticed a ton of different electronics being repaired including a 70 inch TV, a mini ATV, a control panel for a snowplow, the console for a lexus, and they even take care of drones.
What was the toughest thing about opening a cell phone repair shop in Brookfield CT?
Trying to get people to understand the type of services we offer. We don’t just fix phones on tablets and screens, but instead we fix everything with a power button. uBreakiFix of Brookfield also has the exclusive right to fix the new Google Pixel phone, and when the Google Pixel is repaired at a uBreakiFix location then the warrenty stays intact.
Asurion is the insurance agency that Verizon, Walmart, and Target use for their phone & tablet repairs. Through Asurion we handle all their repairs in house. When your verizon phone breaks you simply bring it to our shop in Brookfield (2 minutes from Danbury), and we’ll have it repaired for you in two hours.
We do a free diagonstic on your broken phone so it doesn’t cost you anything for our repair techs to look at it. All of our repairs get a 90 day no hassle warranty which includes parts & labor. On top of all that we focus on customer service so if you’re device is not repaired then you don’t pay.
If a customer was to choose between uBreakiFix in Brookfield CT, and three other cell phone repair businesses in Brookfield, Bethel and Danbury why should they choose yours?
Our massive inventory of parts in stock – no one can compete. Our parts are of the highest grade quality available. Most repairs are done same day. We have over 275 stores in 32 states including Canada, and your 90 day warranty covers you in all locations. In fact, we get a lot of snowbirds that come up from Florida to Connecticut, and they love that their warranty lasts in both areas.
According to one customer on their facebook page “After being turned down by the geek squad over at Best Buy in Danbury, and the apple store located in the Danbury Mall – I was shocked to see Ubreakifix be able to repair my phone in 12 minutes.”
People should know that we do more than just repair phones, ipads, xboxes, playstains, drones, and anything else that has a power cord. uBreakiFix is very involved in the local Greater Danbury Community. We work with Ability Beyond Disability to get their people into our workshop from 2-5pm for a whole week. They get to learn hands-on skills with high precision tools.
uBreakiFix has only been here in Brookfield for 4 months, but we love to engage with the local community. We have many people that depend on our ability to repair the impossible from Danbury, Bethel, and into NY.

Looking for Cell Phone Repair in Danbury?
I met with Ricky Espinal of MobiFix.Repair, a phone repair business that comes to your home in Danbury. MobiFix repairs iPhones, Androids, iPads, and all other smart phones or tablets. Their quality is just as good, if not better quality than other, more well-known cell phone repair shops in Danbury, Connecticut.
In addition to providing quality phone repair service in Danbury, MobiFix also provides the excellent customer service. By the time you drive to the mall, wait in line at the phone repair kiosk, wait for the repair to be done, and then drive home… You could have had MobiFix at your home, a phone repaired, and have played 25 minutes of Candy Crush or Pokemon go – whatever you’re into.
Not to mention the money you’ll have saved on your smart phone repair. MobiFix doesn’t have expensive overhead that kiosks, and phone repair shops in the Danbury Mall do.
What made you want to get into the Mobile Phone Repair Business in Danbury?
"I’d also like to be able to service the other CT areas such as Brookfield, New Fairfield, Bethel, and Ridgefield with additional vans. It’ll definitely be difficult to find others with the same passion as myself, but I’m very optimistic," says Ricky.
If a customer was to choose between your iphone repair business, and three others just like it in Danbury CT… Why choose yours?
“I’m a local business in Danbury. I’m not cellaris, the sprint store, or a random cell phone repair kiosk. I could be making 10x a much at my old job, but I’m building my phone repair business because it’s a passion of mine. You’ll notice that passion in my quality repairs, and great customer service."
