Florida Tennis Center's one-hour clinics acquaint beginner and novice racqueteers with tennis fundamentals in an instructive, competitive environment. Players are grouped by age and ability, so baseline apprentices can begin to master tennis's trying techniques among those equally versed in the art of yellow-orb smashing. Glide across one of the complex's 24 green-clay courts as the ball machine serves up shots to batter cross-court with a textbook low-to-high forehand, a firm-wristed volley, or a highly illegal—but still impressive—scissor-kick. The club provides free loaner racquets to those yet to wrangle their own set of strings and the final class consists of a one-hour supervised practice match where players can test their meddle against fellow classmates and berate imaginary line judges.
Fitness Pursuits shapes malleable muscles into fully formed physiques through comprehensive one-hour training sessions. The four-week group training classes pair up to six workout warriors with a certified coach capable of helping them tap into their can-crushing potential. During the introductory classes, trainers acquaint themselves with each student’s eating habits and improvable areas through online and on-hand fitness and nutrition assessments. Participants set and work toward goals in subsequent sessions, improving overall fitness and making muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. The classes meet once weekly for four consecutive weeks, helping exercisers establish regular routines.
