The AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl, named as a tribute to the military presence in the Shreveport-Bossier City area, pits pigskin players from the Atlantic Coast Conference against their Mountain West Conference counterparts in a hard-hitting college football matchup. For this year's game, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (6-6) will take on the Air Force Falcons (8-4) in a battle between the two of the nation's best rushing attacks. Watch elusive Georgia Tech running back Anthony Allen try to outgain Air Force running back Asher Clark, who's been equipped by the military with helicopter blades to glide over Georgia Tech's linebackers. With a south end-zone seat, you'll watch the game from the quarterback’s perspective, without having the responsibility of leading offensive plays or maneuvering gracefully in shoulder pads.
Peek into Expressions Studio’s deep-red space, and you'll spy ladies of all stripes—cheerful friends trying something new, plucky mothers hoping to get into shape, and confident businesswomen seeking to let off some steam after work. The instructors welcome women of all ages and athletic ability into their private pole-dancing studio, where they offer classes and private instructional parties for beginners and seasoned dancers alike. They lead students through basic spins, climbs, and transitions before moving onto more difficult moves, such as tricky sit-ups where you use your elbows and graceful twirls where you must name 10 US presidents before your feet touch the floor. During Vertically Fit classes, they shift the focus of the lesson from erotic dancing to pole exercises that tone abs, legs, and arms. The instructors also offer open pole sessions, where students can utilize the studio's six stationary, professional-grade Lil' Mynx poles and three petite poles to practice moves on their own.

Sharing studio space, Gorilla Fitness and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Shreveport/Bossier imparts different fitness techniques to its students, with the ultimate goal of students carrying their teachings into their everyday lives. Over on the Gorilla side of things, personal trainers instruct exercisers in one-on-one sessions. The trainers put emphasis on working out the whole body instead of just quickly prepping clients for slinky summerwear, including focusing on habits and lifestyle. They see the human body as a machine that needs to be reprogrammed in order to see lasting results. Meanwhile, students at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Shreveport/Bossier learn the Gracie style of martial arts, which gets bodies and minds to work together to affect change, just like a movie set in a high school gets rival cliques to work together to plan prom.
