As part of its soft opening this Saturday, the new Coreology fitness studio in NoDa is offering a free Megaformer class the week of Sept. 26-Oct. 2.

Kate Curran, who co-owns the studio with her fiancé, Chase Colston, shared this information about the studio and class in an email:

“CORE•OLOGY strives to help you define and create the Strongest, Healthiest form and impression of yourself. At CORE•OLOGY we incorporate The Lagree Fitness™ Method, the most innovative approach to full body conditioning. This workout is performed on an exclusive technology called The MegaFormer™ and every move on this machine is done at the highest intensity, but is low impact and does not cause harm on your body’s muscles and joints.”

For the month of October, coaches will wear pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the studio will donate 10 percent of class proceeds to Susan G. Komen.

The studio is located at 2902 North Davidson St., across from Heist Brewery.


Wells Fargo announced this week it has awarded a $1.2 million grant to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to support its Chamber Training Institute. The grant spans two years. Funds will also be used to help more than 800 leaders from diverse chambers attend the institute, which is offered in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. Participating chambers include the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc., U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce and National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.


Charlotte-based T1V, an Inc. 500 company that makes interactive touchscreens, recently announced that Mooresville-based Lowe’s Home Improvement is using its retail technology in its two new stores in Manhattan.

T1V introduced OneShop™ Endless Aisle and Next Aisle Over software in the two stores.

For the tech company, which has its ultra high-res monitors in restaurants, college campuses and boutiques, the Lowe’s placement represents T1V working with another major national retailer. Last year, it signed a deal with Dallas-based Neiman Marcus to feature touchscreen retail tables at three flagship stores in Chicago; Austin, Texas; and Topanga, Calif. Company officials talked about their interest in working with national retailers in this ShopTalk story that ran in February.
