What would you most like Bee readers to know about your business? “I started working in finance for ten years, and then veered away to become an entrepreneur. I was previously a personal trainer, health coach, and Division 1 college basketball player at Niagra University,” Small said. “When I was considering opening this type of business, I was hoping to create a healthy hangout in the community — a place where everybody feels welcome. I love helping people feel better, and I had been visiting Newtown and drove by the location a couple of times. It’s a great location and Newtown is such a great community — it’s got a pretty large population, but it still keeps its small town feel.”
