Since 1993, the family-owned EyeMart Optical Outlet's goal has been to furnish central Iowans with affordable eyewear. The eye boutique spans nine locations and its inventory of basic and designer frames presents stylish options for all face structures. Optometrists at each location furnish their patients with prescriptions that can be quickly traded for single-vision or progressive lenses with protective coatings and lasers.
Since 1979, Bruce Kennedy has leapt from airplanes more than 5,900 times. He opened Skydive Iowa in 1991, turning his love of thrilling free falls and bird's-eye views into a business. He and his team of USPA-licensed instructors teach visitors safety concepts and skydiving techniques before accompanying them into the air. At a height of 3,000 feet, skydivers leap for tandem or solo jumps. Jumpers drift above the earth for up to five minutes before a radio guides them toward a soft landing. Many of Skydive Iowa's instructors specialize in videography and can capture photographs or videos of skydivers for posterity.
Anytime Fitness is a busy, popular fitness chain that works to remove common obstacles to working out. At any one of the 21 locations this Groupon is valid for, clients have 24/7 access to the gym’s cardio and strength-training equipment, and some locations offer group fitness classes, such as Zumba and small group training. Certified personal trainers are available to help those looking to take their workouts to the next level, and members can finish their exercise routines with a stop off at the onsite tanning booth to add a summery glow to muscles.
ActivEdge Fitness Club's experienced fitness gurus shepherd clients toward a tighter body with two stories worth of cardio and weight equipment, an ample number of group classes, a basketball court, and a 25-meter lap pool. Gain a better understanding of your overall well-being with a health screen, a preliminary fitness assessment that utilizes resistance and balance tests, optional body-fat measurements, and a trainer consultation to calculate an individualized plan for achieving physical goals. Then guests can put their plans into action by piloting more than 50 cardio machines in workout zones equipped with several flat-screen televisions. A variety of group classes, which include Kardio Kickboxing and the pool-based Nautical Noodles, confuse muscles much more effectively than performing a triathlon in zero gravity or telling sinews they were adopted. While adults enjoy postworkout tanning, the kids' club's mini basketball court lets active little ones exercise away pent-up energy and mimic legendary video-game character Michael Jordan.
Shortly after brothers Eldon and Clarence Klauer co-founded Klauer Optical in 1939, they found themselves making binocular lenses for the United States Navy during World War II. Today, the company's work orders have changed, but the Klauer name remains. Clarence's grandson Jeff oversees the operation, and Eldon's son Charles fabricates the store's eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Dr. Dennis Yossi approaches dentistry with an innovatively non-terrifying philosophy focused on minimizing pain and eliminating the onus of oral shame. After the initial exam for the Whitening for Life program, an incisor scourer will make a mold of your mashers and supply two weeks' worth of bicuspid bleach, which sparkles up mouth bones without the need for diamond-dust toothpaste. These oral artistes will provide fresh coats of bleach as long as their canine canvases return biannually (every six months). The office's guilt-free policy means that if patients are lectured or made to feel guilty about their use of floss for games of cat's cradle, the exam and x-rays are free. New patients may request their first appointment online.
