Gazella a go go

Debbie Bobbett and Reem Jishi have expanded the programming at their performance and wellness studio on the corner of Old Seneca Turnpike and Jordan Road in Skaneateles. It's called Gazella and is actually up above Dr. John Maurillo's eyecare office, "Village Visions."

What is Gazella? Ned Campbell reported earlier in the Skaneateles Press:

"People go there to get in shape, but don't be fooled: it's not your typical gym.

Gazella is about comfort, cleanliness and sustainability. The newly purchased equipment, and even the paint on the walls, is all environmentally friendly.

Customers can expect to use unique equipment - like the TRX suspension training chords - for the first time, but not without comfortably paced instruction.

And adding to the comfort, the larger room has advanced heating and cooling capabilities. Bobbett says the room can heat up to 95 degrees in five minutes for hot yoga classes. The glistening hardwood floors also feature radiant heat.

New this month, Gazella has opened its spinning room to offer an indoor cycling program, and has expanded its services to include facials and massage.
