Business Beat: Firm helps folks get on the road in unique way

Helping people break free from normal modes of transportation is the goal of Paul and Mei Curtis, who recently opened SeVuR.

The store is focused on making micro-mobility a reality for people by selling compact and ultralight electric scooters, electric skateboards and eboards.

“SeVuR is how we describe the process of leaving the transportation norms of today’s society to increase fun, reduce transportation costs, eliminate emissions, adopt minimalism, improve outdoor recreation and ultimately break free,” said Paul Curtis. “It’s pronounced sever, meaning to separate.”

He said he first learned about these transportation options a few years ago through some co-workers.

“They are designed for people who have commutes,” he said.

The couple realized that other people needed to know about these options, so they started an online store and had pop-up tents at local events.

The online store then grew to a physical one, now located at 1402A Boulder City Parkway.

Five years of fitness

Snap Fitness in Boulder City celebrated its fifth anniversary recently, highlighting the feeling of family it offers members.

Owner and trainer Steele Sacks touted the fitness center’s social interaction among members. There is an area where they can relax and chat or find reading material as well as an online app called Myzone, which he likened to “Facebook for fitness.”

With the app, people can track their fitness routines as well as connect with other members to comment on their routines or offer encouragement, he said.

Mayi Rosenbaum, the center’s manager, said the business offers assorted equipment for cardiovascular health and training, weights, tanning, hydromassage and a variety of classes such as Zumba and yoga.

In addition to the regularly scheduled classes, Snap Fitness members have access to about 300 online training sessions that focus on individual areas such as core strength, abdominal muscles or overall wellness, Sacks said.

Snap Fitness is at 1030 Nevada Way. For more information, contact Rosenbaum at 702-403-1671.
