It's your business: Fit with Z brings fitness to your door

It's your business: Fit with Z brings fitness to your door

For those who would exercise if only the gym would come to them, Urbana-based personal trainer Ziemowit Mazur has launched a new business called Fit with Z.

He'll bring his training, nutrition counseling and sports conditioning services to your home or office – at any hour.

"If they want to work out at 3 a.m., they can," he said.

Mazur holds a master's degree in education and a bachelor's degree in sports management from the University of Illinois, and he's also worked for nine years in various health clubs. He is certified in both personal training and nutrition.

Mazur said bringing training and equipment to his clients eliminates the barrier many people have to getting in shape – having to get in their car and go someplace or sign a membership contract.

Each workout is customized to the client's needs, Mazur said, and a free fitness assessment comes with each package of services. Clients can work with him alone or with a friend.

Mazur said he has also made arrangements with some area hotels to offer personal training services to hotel guests.

New addresses

Gossett Clinic of Chiropractic and Spinal Center of Champaign have moved south – from the corner of Neil Street and Kirby Avenue to 2401 S. Neil St., at the corner of Windsor Road and Neil Street.

Dr. Tom "T.K." Gossett said he is now sharing space with Central State Chiropractic and Rehabilitation.

Gossett, who has been in business for 28 years, is a chiropractic physician with postgraduate training in orthopedics, acupuncture, sports medicine, and insurance and claim review.

The Spinal Center offers nonsurgical spinal decompression treatments to treat herniated discs, Gossett said.

White Sands Tanning has opened in its new location at 1052 S. Market St., Monticello.

The tanning salon, owned by Nancy McCleary, is now next to Hair of the Dog, a pet grooming business and groomer academy owned by her daughter, Tracy Kaufman.

Kaufman bought the building late last summer and expanded and remodeled it, said her sister, Alicia Force, who works in both businesses.

White Sands Tanning has three traditional tanning beds and one stand-up bed and a new tanning product that covers scars and stretch marks, Force said. For its grand reopening, it is offering discounts and chances to win a getaway vacation or $1,000 Internet shopping spree, she said.

White Sands opens weekdays at 8 a.m. and closes at 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and at 5 p.m. on Friday. Weekend hours vary. For more information, call 762-7200.

Name change

Togo's Eatery at 515 S. Neil St., C, (which shares space with Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins) is now Dunkin' Deli. But the menu of salads, soups and sandwiches remains almost the same, according to manager Hema Modi.

Dunkin' Donuts, Baskin Robbins and Togo's all share the same parent company, Dunkin' Brands Inc., a division of Allied Domencq PLC of Bristol, England.

The Champaign restaurant was one of 45 Togo's that was switched to the new Dunkin' Deli concept – a move intended to capitalize on the higher name recognition and customer loyalty Dunkin' Donuts carries in this part of the country, the company said.

Now open

American Legend Homes, a manufactured-homes business, has opened a new sales office at 204 N. Eastwood Drive, Mahomet, next to the IGA grocery. It has five model homes on site, all available for tours.

Hours are weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment.

General Manager Lee Jessup said the business will have a weeklong grand opening starting April 1 with food served and prizes available.

For more information, call 586-3790.
