A 65-foot curvilinear orange slide spits out kids into the nearly 210,000-gallon indoor pool with a splash during recreational-swim time. Twenty-five yards in length and separated into eight lanes, the pool also makes for excellent exercise. With water kept between 81 and 83 degrees, the pool also keeps muscles loose for programs, such as Aqua Zumba Fitness and Aquacize, each designed to incinerate calories and boost cardio through fun dancing and aerobic workouts. Committed to safety, the facility is supervised by top-notch lifeguards, and experienced swim instructors equip the water-bound with the skills needed to put a midsize fish in its place. To provide the community with top-notch facilities, renovation was completed in 2007 to include amenities such as changing rooms with lockers, showers, diaper-changing stations, and restrooms. Families are also welcome to relax on the outdoor patio while the little ones patter about in the splash zone.
In under two years, what started as a humble boot camp founded by Taryn Landberg has grown into a full-blown fitness powerhouse. In addition to the signature camps, NASM-certified trainers lead a number of programs, each designed around specific goals. Classes range from basic group workout sessions that spur exercisers on with peer support to the Women's Elite Training, a CrossFit-style workout that focuses on strength building without the competitive atmosphere. Taryn's Transformation in 60 sessions incorporate her fitness and nutrition knowledge to get folks fit in two months by teaching them how to develop long-term lifestyle changes. No matter the program, Dream To Be Fit sticks closely to its founding principles, keeping class sizes small to avoid the impersonal atmosphere of big-box gyms.
Though Excell Cleaners can launder, dry-clean, and tailor nearly any garment its customers bring in, its best feature is the time it reserves to accomplish this feat. The company's five locations stay open 24 hours per day, freeing customers of the familiar rush to pick up their clothing before the cleaners close. Beyond its professional pressing, expert hemming, and knack with delicate materials such as suede and beaded silk, a special stain-removal system helps renew garments that have been smeared with makeup, dappled with wine, or borrowed by a black-and-white movie star.
Unlike an outdoor field, The Perfect Swing's more than 60,000 sq. ft. facility isn't ever affected by bad weather or movie crews shooting yet another inspiring comeback story. The sound of cracking bats and thudding balls fills the training space rain or shine year-round. Baseball and softball players face off against seven automatic pitching machines, which hurl balls at speeds between 35–70 miles per hour, while pitchers work their arms in 17 practice tunnels.
The Perfect Swing also offers four indoor turf fields for year-round baseball, softball, and soccer. Shoppers who are looking to stock up on softball and baseball equipment can visit the on-site store.
Athletes aren't left to swing and throw blindly, though. The Perfect Swing boasts a staff of more than 25 baseball and softball instructors, including many current and former professional players. During private and group instruction, these experts help students hone fundamental skills in areas such as hitting, pitching, catching, fielding, and agility. Instructors also lead outdoor baseball camps during the summer months.
