Davidson Networking Spotlight: Elle Borg at Body20 Jacksonville Beach

June 17, 2019

 | 

Think of a typical gym and visions include mirrored walls of dumbbells, treadmills and endless weight machines. You may also envision bored gym goers spending hours practicing ineffective workouts.

 

Enter Body20, a technology-driven workout system that uses EMS (Electro Muscle Stimulation) to mimic the natural action of our central nervous system to stimulate muscles, thereby supercharging your workouts for results NOW.

 

Body20 workouts have been shown to boost strength and endurance while preventing injury—all in a fraction of the time you’ll spend in a conventional gym. Workouts take, you guessed it, just 20 minutes.

 

This format is catching on and Body20 is expanding fast. In fact, a new location recently opened in Jacksonville Beach. We connected with franchise owner and manager Elle Borg to learn more about Body20 and just how it achieves big results far better than other gyms.

New construction or existing home: 3 not-so-obvious questions

June 11, 2019

 | 

When you move to the First Coast, you have some decisions to make. Will you move to the city, suburbs or beach? Will you choose Jacksonville, St. Augustine or another nearby town? And of course, will you look for an existing home or new construction?

Beyond the numbers, there are other fairly obvious differences—aesthetics, access to amenities and good schools, appliance warranties, neighborhood, and so on.

 

Here are three important but not-so-obvious questions that may help you decide:

 

Do you want more house or more yard?

While there are certainly exceptions, many existing homes tend to be on larger lots and boast less square footage inside. The average home built in 1990 barely broke 2,000 sq. ft. while homes built today average nearly 2,700 sq. ft.

The National Association of Realtors annual meeting in Washington DC just wrapped up and Dr. Lawrence Yun, chief economist at the National Association of Realtors made an interesting prediction of changing future migration patterns of buyers. “Because of significant differences in home prices between metro markets, he says there may be a steady shift in the relocation of people and companies into more affordable regions of the country. Housing affordability has been falling according to NAR’s Housing Affordability Index.” Florida Realtors

 

Another Florida Realtors article discusses the 2018 American Community Survey state-to-state migration flows. Florida had the most domestic in-movers, with 566,476 people moving from another state within the past year.
