Personal Trainer and Lululemon Ambassador Darsenio Hunter knows that great trainers have to be able to lead physically and mentally.
"The key to a good workout is to keep smiling!"
Darsenio continues to inspire his community even when he isn't leading classes at Cyclebar South Lake Union or Rival Fitness in Capitol Hill. He once held a plank for 53 minutes, and did 501 push-ups in 30 minutes to raise over $4,500 for Breast Cancer Awareness research. He was featured in Seattle Magazine’s Feb. 2017 lifestyle section as one of “Seattle’s Top Trainers."
Darsenio knows that motivation comes in different forms for everyone so he's sharing his favorite places to break a sweat. Check out the Vermouth app to discover where this trainer does fitness.

Jessie Poole and her family brought the heritage of a small gold mining town in Southern Idaho to Pioneer Square in the Spring of 2013. This early Americana-style space is half store, half bar, and fully welcoming.
Elmer and Mary Smith were their great-grandparents who instilled this true American spirit into the family.
"It’s a heritage that inspires us. It evokes images of family huddled around a wood fire, of young men and women on horseback through open fields, of community gatherings at the local “Hub”... It’s the true American spirit that is currently in a resurgence. We are tiring of a consumer culture based on disposable products. There is a shift in our country back to quality goods, crafted by hand, slow and thoughtful and beautiful... and we feel it."
The family extends to the employees too. They take an annual camping retreat every Summer to relax and take a few days off from the hectic life of selling a rotating stock of goods, tending to a bar, and living life as business owners.

CEO and co-founder, Jamien McCullum has brought "Apptivism" to the public eye. Since its inception, McCullum has been keen on ensuring Vermouth is a different type of business. The integration of philanthropy and business strategy is the concept behind "Apptivism" and McCullum intends to inspire change. With the announcement of the company's partnership with Planned Parenthood, many have rallied around the app's pledge to donate $1 for every download. The Seattle-based company Glassybaby has also agreed to match the first $50,000 raised by Vermouth through their White Light Fund.
We will continue to look forward to the work that McCullum and his team have in store for us in the coming months!
