One of the nation's largest drag-boat-racing competitions, the Ozarka Oklahoma City Nationals pits a string of specially designed top-fuel hydro boats against each other in a series of high-speed quarter-mile drag races. Unlike traditional drag-car racing, boats begin at a crawl before gunning their engines to toupee-toppling speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, nearly half the speed of light. A general-admission ticket grants you a cozy spot along the downtown river's verdant thoroughfare, where you can take photos of the action while remaining relatively still in your lawn chair. Though not included with this Groupon, you can sate seafaring appetites with vittles from the event's on-site vendors.
Under the direction of Dr. Taylor, the certified laser specialists at Vanish Laser Tattoo Removal help patients return their skin to ink-free states. Using Astanza Trinity laser technology, they disassemble ink particles that make up tattoos or birthmarks that spell out "Charlie Forever" so that the body can naturally absorb the unwanted pigment. The Q-switched Nd:YAG laser treatments are effective on black and color inks, although certain hues, such as yellow or white, require more sessions to remove. The specialists also aim their laser beam at age spots or other naturally occurring skin discolorations to leave complexions clearer with no needles, potions, lotions or pills.
At Dermatology and Laser Center of Fort Worth, Dr. William Cothern and his team treat conditions ranging from melanoma to unwanted tattoos through services that span both advanced cosmetic and traditional dermatology therapies. Dr. Cothern's staff takes pride in customizing each patient's treatment through personal consultations and in its expertise with devices such as CoolSculpting panels, Fraxel lasers, and LightSheer diodes.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
