Working out well

By Stephen Schmidt
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– Sometimes, you just need space to stretch out and breathe.
In January, Carey Sadler of North Liberty opened her new River City Pilates location in North Liberty at 595 Ashley Court, Suite 6, a move away from her former, cramped location on Oakdale Boulevard in Coralville.
Sadler said the move has already paid dividends.
“I have definitely been able to accommodate a lot more people,” Sadler said. “Now I’m in the process of trying to find teachers to teach for me, which is a good thing because business is growing.”
