Twisted Bodies

Twisted Bodies Pilates & Yoga is a unique fitness studio offering Pilates, yoga, pole fitness and other work out alternatives. Owned by Carissa Kniss and Khristen Pahler, these moms came together and out of their boredom with the typical gym atmosphere created a studio focusing on small classes with individualized training and a strong supportive atmosphere. Twisted Bodies builds both physical and emotional strength, all while sharing in a love of giving back. Both Carissa and Khristen are certified in the Stott Pilates method and have extensive backgrounds in dance, yoga and other fitness modalities. Twisted Bodies is also the first studio in Denton to offer Pink Ribbon training to women and men who have battled breast cancer.

Upon opening the doors to their new studio, Carissa and Khristen made a promise to give back to the community and in doing so have partnered with Susan G. Komen of North Texas.  Helping to further breast cancer research and education was a natural step for Twisted Bodies after Khristen’s personal experience with her mother’s battle and several of their clients and friends.

On January 18-19 they will be hosting their first annual Pin-Ups with Purpose event at their studio and will be joined by Kiss FM’s Billy the Kid. Women around the metroplex will participate in a Pin-up style photo shoot which includes hair, make up and costumes. Free for breast cancer survivors/patients, non-survivors/patients are asked to donate $150 to reserve their spot. All proceeds will be given to Susan G Komen of North Texas for the treatment, education and early detection of breast cancer.  This event was made possible by donations from local businesses such as Photo Xpressions by Lisa, Sugar Queen Cupcakes, The Mane Beautique, and Rose Costumes.  For more information visit or call 940-465-6595/972-345-0992.

Opened in 1992, Fera’s Italian Restaurant remains family owned and operated which creates a relaxed atmosphere for all to enjoy. Uncle and nephews started a new pizza and pasta spot, formally known as Bari’s in Denton. From their original endeavor, one brother managed the store while the other expanded businesses to Sherman, Tyler and most recently Gainesville in 2009. Although the Denton location caught fire in 1999, after rebuilding, this restaurant continues to be a favorite with locals and the college group. Don’t be confused by the name change.  Bari’s to Fera’s, but everything else remains the same. Currently all locations are open 6 days a week, offering daily lunch specials as low as $5.95. If you need a break from work or class whether a slice of pizza or to treat your family to a spaghetti supper, stop in and try their “Best of Denton” award winning Italian cuisine.

The Exchange Gold Store

Hi, this is Brandon,  owner of the Exchange Gold Store. People are wondering what the big deal is with the “cash for gold” advertisements.  Well I am here to tell you!

Gold has gone from $650.00 an ounce to almost $1200.00 an ounce in the one and a half years we have been in business in Denton.  People are getting more than double the price over what they received a year ago for the old jewelry sitting in their jewelry boxes, and never being worn.  Out of 2500 customers so far, the average payout has been on average $268.00.

The Exchange Gold Store buys gold, silver, platinum, diamonds, coins and flatware. We pay cash on the spot!  Locally owned and operated, come see us today at the northwest corner of Loop 288 and I-35,  located behind Jack in the Box.

Need Cash for the New Year? We can help!
