As children grow, their minds begin to grasp the routines in their lives and create habits that stay with them as they age. That's why the founder of Little Turtle Yoga believes that yoga classes for kids can be so beneficial. In addition to boosting strength and flexibility, yoga helps children obtain a calmness and personal awareness that can be translated to all sorts of activities, such as doing homework and trading currency futures. Each Little Turtle yoga class incorporates games, music, and storytelling to engage imaginations while developing coordination. In addition to classes, the Mini Yogis–certified instructor also hosts yoga parties for ages 3 and older.
As its name suggests, Muscle Rock Fitness focuses on strength training. At local parks, their certified trainers help exercisers build lean muscles that continue to burn calories long after the workout ends. The trainers can adjust the specific exercises to accommodate everyone from beginners to experts.
Koko FitClub?s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko?s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user?s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body?s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
Rounding out 15 months in the sports-bar scene, JT's Sportsgrille's menu entertains appetites with an ensemble of classic American dishes served in a family-friendly establishment. Dining duos can practice synchronized eating routines while digging into a starter of bottle caps—breaded and flash-fried jalapeños—or chowing down on avocado dip that, like a gambler in the desert, arrives at tables with hot chips. Pairs can snatch up an entree of 10 crispy wings dipped in one of 18 sauces, including italian, lemon-pepper, or jamaican, or bite into a third-pound Angus burger bejeweled with a customizable cavalcade of onions, cheeses, and mushrooms. The menu’s Big Dawg section (not valid during lunch) boasts a savory assortment of sweet and salty entrees, including shrimp tacos, sprinkled with cheddar and pico, and french toast that tickles taste buds with powered sugar, bacon, and witty anecdotes.
