Sheryl Langley, Owner FIT36
Denver Highlands Location

No traditional workout can provide elite-level results in 36 minutes or less. No traditional fitness plan can match the efficiency of the FIT36® workout. We do high intensity interval training / HIIT and we do it like no one else. Once you HIIT at FIT36® Highlands, you won’t want to HIIT anywhere else.
We run our circuits for two weeks at a time. This quick muscle-memory plan allows your body to go from unable to able to expert on these movements in a two-week span. Once you become great at these movements, we shake up the circuit and start over again.
This is modern training for the modern athlete. We use everything from kettlebells to TRX® and beyond, and we use it in intervals. We use movements you never thought existed. We use movements you use every day. Combined together, these movements can build strength and improve athleticism.
We have a certified personal trainer in each class to ensure proper technique and improve efficiency. Our movements are self-limiting, taking you to the max while prioritizing your safety. We don’t make you do what you can’t do. We can make you better at what you can do.
We are happy to offer all those attending a FREE week of classes at our location 3774 Julian Street, Denver Highlands.

Gleam car wash is a flex-serve car wash, which means you can 
get just the outside washed for as little as $6 all the way up to a
completely restorative detail, we call the Sale Ready Detail, and 
everything in between. We chose this concept, because it offers 
something for everyone. Gleam is the greenest car wash in the 
state. We recycle all of our water and re-use over 90% of that. 
Plus, we have 32 variable frequency drives for all of our big 
motors and 41kw array of solar on our roof. We also love 
giving back to our community and neighborhood by offering 
all local items in our lobby, by donating to Children’s Hospital 
and Groundwork Denver, and by employing adults with 
disabilities, and refugees. So, as you can see, you’re not just 
getting your car cleaned when you come to Gleam…

The newest version of the Tap & Burger concept moves into a stretch of redevelopment that was previously the St. Anthony Hospital campus, but now sports several new apartment, retail and office buildings, with more condos and townhomes slated for the coming years. While the restaurant might feel a little isolated now, it's only a block off Colfax and within stroller-pushing distance of the West Highland and Sloan Lake neighborhoods, as well as the tiny enclave of Edgewater.
Some items on the menu will seem familiar, even if the new Tap is considerably brighter and more spacious than its older sibling. But along with the well-loved Shroom Luva's and Tap burgers (the latter heaped with pulled pork),  there are plenty of new additions to the roster, both in burger form and otherwise. The house burger, called the STB, runs a couple of bucks more than its menu-mates but features grass-fed beef from Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe and Tender Belly bacon. There's also a whole new "Colorado Barbecue" section featuring bison brisket, Colorado lamb, pulled pork and green-chile cheddar hot links, all smoked over wood that includes barrel staves from local distilleries and breweries.
Also new are pork hanger steak skewers, shrimp ceviche, Spanish chorizo corn dogs and Puerto Rican asopao, a soup made with shrimp, chicken and rice.
At the bar, expect a large variety of beers on tap and in bottles, here divided into sections named for Colorado's geography: Arikaree River (the lowest elevation in Colorado), Grasslands, Rolling Hills, High Plains, Foothills, Treeline and Summit — progressing in potency as the elevation increases. Ten house cocktails, a handful of wines — including Bar Dough's house red, rosso and white on tap — and a deep list of spirits round out the selection. While you're seated at the bar, marvel at the the tap tower, which splits off into eight shiny pipes that race across the ceiling and disappear into the kitchen wall. Juan Padro says the setup added about $100,000 to the budget but was necessary given the high ceilings and configuration of the restaurant.
Chef Eli Odell, who has been with the Padros since the beginning, heads the culinary program for both Taps, with chef Toby Prout, who joined the team at Bar Dough last year and was previously executive chef at Leña on Broadway, overseeing day-to-day operations. Padro explains that he is a believer in cross-training with his restaurants and bringing talent along through the ranks, and he also gives the leaders at his restaurants (general managers and executive chefs, for example) an ownership stake.
Sloan's Lake Tap & Burger is now serving dinner beginning at 3 p.m. daily, but Padro says the restaurant is still in a soft-opening period, so all menu items might not be available, and some minor shifts may occur before early next week, when the restaurant will formally open. Keep reading for more photos of Sloan Lake's newest eatery.
