Owners Jeff and Michelle Dow met at the University of Iowa on athletic scholarships for gymnastics. After decorated careers that included spots on the U.S. Nationals team, the duo moved to Lubbock and founded Tega Kid's Superplex in 1995. Assisted by a skilled staff, they entertain and educate kids in teamwork and the athletic arts during sports programs, camps, and events. Though planted in gymnastics classes and fertilized with hand-grip chalk, the 18,000-square-foot facility has blossomed into a diverse space that teaches noncompetitive dance, cheerleading, tumbling, and swimming lessons that follow the USAG Junior Olympic Program's curriculum. The facility also houses a preschool, afterschool activities, and summer events and is a licensed provider of Motion Evolution, an interactive fitness program for kids.
More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students? math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.
Seasoned musicians Brady Stark and William Stanton and their troupe of instructors approach guitar lessons with an easy hand, letting students follow their own musical path in styles such as classic rock, heavy metal, jazz, funk, and blues. In their guitar-strewn practice room, the duo of instructors hosts laid-back lessons for beginners and in-depth sessions in music theory for advanced students, earning enthusiastic reviews from clients both young and old. Stark, Stanton, and their instructors have a special affinity for particularly difficult music, relishing the challenges of blistering metal solos and hard-rock jams as indomitable as a speeding locomotive loaded with kryptonite.
As a child, Samantha would wonder around her family's river cabin shooting pictures of wind blowing leaves and endless roads winding through woods. That fascination at finding beauty everywhere, whether in a weather-worn fence or a parent's proud expression, is as strong as ever to this day. Today, she brings that enthusiasm to portrait sessions for kids, families, and weddings. After sessions, she can memorialize the event with high-quality prints, wall panels, or custom-designed albums.
Fresh Outlook believes that life’s biggest problems can be solved with a laser—as long as those problems involve unwanted hair, acne, warts, or spider veins. Using Fotona lasers, certified staffers carry out skin-resurfacing treatments and benign-lesion removal. With the Lapex BCS LipoLaser, they can attack fat in a noninvasive treatment. Aside from laser treatments, staffers also smooth wrinkles with Botox or a dermal filler such as Radiesse or Juvéderm.
