For a company that has pushed more than 1.5 million people out of planes during the course of 38 years, Skydive Baltimore enjoys a top-notch reputation among adrenaline-seeking sky travelers. Tandem skydivers pair off with their trusty instructor before ascending to 11,000 feet, taking in views of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay as they discover what gravity feels like 2 miles above the ground. Divers can commemorate their jumps with video and photographic evidence captured by their instructor, a third jumper, or a borrowed spy satellite.
The staff of medical professionals at Katzen Eye Group, which first opened its doors in 1968, brings blurry vision into focus at four locations in Baltimore, Abingdon, Lutherville, and Rosedale. Attentive physicians peer into peepers of all ages as they administer comprehensive exams, outfit patients with prescription glasses, and help prevent diseases such as glaucoma. Lasik surgery can correct one's distance vision. Cataract surgery, which replaces one's cloudy natural lens with a clear implantable lens is also performed at Katzen Eye Group. Additionally, a staff of aesthetic professionals beautify bodies through services including skincare and cosmetic laser treatments, which can eliminate wrinkles around the eyes more effectively than staring at a jar of cold cream.
Straighter teeth, whiter smiles, and vanished wrinkles are just a few of the potential benefits of visiting Abingdon Family Dentistry, which has served its community for more than three decades. Dr. Modiri calls upon her years of training in the fields of dental work and facial aesthetics to help her clients achieve their ideal smiles, add youthfulness to their faces, and escape jaw pain caused by TMJ or constantly being surprised. In addition to traditional dental and aesthetic care, the office's staff also performs sedation dentistry, which allows patients who have a chronic fear of dental work to sleep through it all.
The trainers at Get Fit Boot Camp of Harford County mold athletes. They work with clients seeking many different things, whether it's to fearlessly don a bathing suit and head to the beach or fearlessly tackle opponents in a college football game. To get their charges ready, they use a combination of classic calisthenics and bodyweight resistance exercises—pushups are featured heavily—mixed with interval and strength training. Outside of boot camps, they help their athletes train specific abilities, such as running speed, jump height, or the ability to flex triceps in the most attractive manner.
The old warehouse didn't seem ideal to house much of anything, but the rent was cheap once George Bennett offered to make all his own renovations. Drawing from a background as a builder, he created his own architectural plans, and he and a friend set to work on construction. For months, George arrived early in the morning to demolish old partitions and install lighting and windows. As the transformation neared its finish, the pair mounted new walls, spread mulch floor covering, and set up targets and quivers in the 8,000-square-foot archery range. George invited the National Shooting Sports Foundation to examine his facilities and received a four-star rating.
Now, more than a decade later, arrows sing through the air, slipping percussively into three types of targets. The targets sprout up from a tree-dotted floor under rustic wooden rafters along the indoor, climate-controlled range. Traditional targets stand 45 yards from the shooting area, and computer-controlled moving targets in the form of three-dimensional deer, beavers, and wolves trot across the range, challenging archers to pin them with warning notes addressed to loudmouthed owls. Additional animal targets positioned closer to the shooter's area allow traditional longbow and recurve bow users to test their marksmanship. To prepare for successful shooting sessions, visitors peruse the pro shop's racks of compound bows from the Mathews series as well as Mission gear and Matthews Officially Licensed Products. Quivers brim with Carbon Tech arrows, and George and his staff make other arrows by hand, which George sometimes inscribes with Deer Creek's logo with the care of a painter autographing his children.
