For classes that incorporate live-fire training, Ready Learning Academy works out of their private shooting range in Georgetown, Texas.
Depending on the course, customers can rent 9 millimeter semi-automatic handguns such as a Ruger SR-9 or Glock 17/19, a tactical pump shotgun such as a Remington 870 or Mossberg 500, and an AR-15 such as a Colt LE 6920, Sig Sauer M400 or an LWRC M6. Models are subject to availability.
Ready Learning Academy's professionally trained instructors believe that responsible gun use comes from a solid foundation in shooting fundamentals. That's why the academy offers three levels of handgun, carbine, or rife and shotgun classes. During these sessions, instructors teach students of all experience levels on the fundamentals of stance, grip and hold, and trigger control. Pupils progress onto more advanced skills such as defensive tactics, cover and concealment, shooting while moving, and engaging multiple threats. Away from the range, the staff offers a variety of services including gunsmith tune-ups, sells firearms at its store and conducts self-defense courses.
Some of the hyper-interactive classes at IQuest Global Enrichment Center cover subjects kids might encounter in school—math, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese—but others challenge them to use their critical thinking skills in totally different ways. Some sessions teach kids to create YouTube-appropriate digital films, while others focus on engineering simple machines from Legos, rather than from a little brother and an extra-large hamster wheel. Groups are kept small and, whenever possible, surrounded by innovative technological tools in a space where goldfish float near the ceiling and a map of the world sprawls across the floor.

Austin Fit Magazine named RockBody Boot Camp its Best Boot Camp of 2011 and also lauded its owner, Brian Prinzo, as one of the city’s Top 10 Fittest Trainers in 2010. But for Brian and his staff of experienced trainers, it’s not about the accolades; it’s about helping others lose weight and reach their fitness goals. Classes eschew routine courses of treadmills and bench presses for a variety of challenging workouts that put participants through a mash-up of strength, core, cardio, and interval training designed to push them to their personal limits. Best of all, the workouts provide the motivation and accountability needed to help exercisers push past plateaus, and exercises can be tailored to accommodate many fitness levels and concerns, such as arthritis, body pain, and conjoined sweatbands.
By the time a child turns 6, his or her brain has already reached 90% of its developmental potential. Froggin Learning Center's teachers use the years leading up to this deadline, helping kids fill their expanding minds with a second language instead of ideas for mud-based desserts. Not only do students absorb the second language better than adults, but the process of learning that language helps develop kids' creativity and intelligence.
Froggin's teaching methodology relies heavily on the work of two renowned child psychologists: Piaget and Gardner. They believed that a positive, stimulating environment, much like chalkboards made of candy bark, keeps children engaged and motivated. With a max of eight children per teacher, each classroom bustles with personal attention, games, music, and interpersonal activities designed to organically incorporate English or Spanish into speech.
