If practice makes perfect, then Suddenly Slimmer may have created the perfect body wrap. Suddenly Slimmer has performed more than 30,000 of the inch-reducing treatments. Owner Julie Tracey first decided to open her own business after body wraps changed her life by helping her drop four dress sizes. Today, Suddenly Slimmer wages a war on toxins, inches, and cellulite with the crown jewel of the business—a vast array of all natural, non-dehydrating, mineral body wraps.
Powered by the Victorian Morton Process, the different wraps purport to permanently slim thighs, tummies, and chubby earlobes. Some of them are designed to whittle down waist lines or smooth cellulite, but clients can opt for the whole shebang and jump straight to the Supreme Wrap. So confident is Suddenly Slimmer in this top-shelf palliative, they guarantee clients will lose between 14 and 30 inches or they'll just give the next one away for free. No matter the wrap, Suddenly Slimmer looks out for their clients' safety by using only food grade ingredients in each of their mineral- and nutrient-infused wraps.
In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
Throughout KangaZoom's 12,000-square-foot facility, youngsters aged 2–12 and their parents whoosh down giant slides, carom about jump castles, and dart through obstacle courses during daily open play sessions. The inflatable basketball court's added bounciness makes it easier for kids to dribble the ball or each other, and a separate area for toddlers allows them to safely interact away from older children’s high-octane play. Though adults can join their children as long as they're wearing socks, they can also kick back in the lounge café and snack on concessions and drinks. Three private rooms host birthday parties for groups of up to 20 revelers, and KangaZoom's staff run regular dance and fitness classes for kids to learn impressive moves before the kindergarten prom.
