Jessica and Karina each hold two licenses: one for driving a vehicle, and one for teaching Zumba classes. At Zumba Fitness, it's the latter that matters most. With international tunes as their soundtrack, the pair leads pupils through easy-to-follow dance moves that help them drop pounds and sculpt their physiques. In addition to traditional Zumba workouts, the duo teaches Zumba Toning classes, which incorporate light hand weights for strength-training exercises, and Zumba Sentao courses, which use chairs during targeted resistance-training routines.
AfterBurner workouts combine resistance training and a motivating group workout with a personalized regimen to suit students of all levels. The coaches mix up the routine daily to avoid plateaus and boredom and customize guests’ workouts to help them transform as much fat into muscle as possible.
A veritable smorgasbord of functional training equipment speckles the astro-turf floors of Alpha Omega Sports Performance's intimate facility, where expert instructors lead energetic boot-camp classes, vigorous CrossFit workouts, and professional weightlifting lessons. The trainers cater to individuals of all ages, even offering a specialty youth program, where they guide kids through comprehensive workouts and counsel them on the importance of healthy habits. During all classes and training sessions, the instructors employ the use of professional workout tools—including Concept2 rowing machines, weightlifting platforms, and Rogue infinity rigs and monkey bars. Dedicated to fostering healthy lifestyles outside the gym, trainers provide clients with nutritional advice while warning them against dangerous weight-loss strategies, such as skipping breakfast or placing a live bobcat in the pantry in the hopes that it will eat all your high-sugar cereals.
The dental professionals at Comfort Dental Care, led by director Dr. Alan Farrugia, administer exams and x-rays to address cavity-stricken jaws and share Zoom! whitening trays to brighten base smiles. Clients head to the office for a comprehensive examination of chompers' strength, condition, and tendency to bite strangers. Bitewing x-rays showcase the upper- and lower-back teeth, exposing tooth decay. Zoom! whitening trays can illuminate hues several shades, but may be uncomfortable if tooth decay is present, so dentists will advise patients on the decision between the cleaning and teeth-whitening options after their exam. Clients who opt for dental cleaning recline as a hygienist rids grins of tartar, plaque, and long-lost retainers. Panoramic x-ray angles display a broad view of the jaws, teeth, and sinuses to reveal unseen problems such as cysts, infections, fractures, and impacted teeth.
Dr. A. E. Miller’s path to Summit Dental was anything but direct. After manning a solo practice for 10 years, Dr. Miller sold it and moved to Hana, Maui, where he administered nonprofit dental services. When he returned to Pensacola, he continued to perform nonprofit dental services while also designing coursework and intricate hedge mazes for dental students at the University of Florida.
Soon after, he opened Summit Dental, reestablishing himself in private practice and employing his expertise in family and cosmetic dentistry. He and his experienced staff dedicate themselves to helping patients gain self-confidence with a smile-makeover approach, which seeks to optimize the natural beauty of each patient’s smile.
