Dr. Edward Perraut hasn't just performed more than 50,000 LASIK surgeries, he's also undergone the laser-based procedure. This boosts the credibility of the Johns Hopkins fellow and his fellow doctors, who speak from experience when advising clients on the LASIK procedures. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with a small incision to open a flap over the corneal surface. Using a small-spot laser beam, WaveLight's Allegretto Wave Eye-Q laser helps reforms the curvature of the cornea according to calibrations customized for each patient. The flap is then closed and begins resealing immediately, thanks to the eye's ability to heal quickly. The surgeons furnish patients with home-care instructions, as well as recommendations for follow-up appointments. A small percentage may need touch-up procedures, which are included if the patient is a viable candidate. An FAQ page anticipates common questions, such as, "will LASIK affect my x-ray vision?"

Bill Burnett’s staff of wellness whisperers imbues students with fitness expertise amid a supportive and educational environment. During a metabolic training class, pupils partake in fast-paced, full-body routines that can include lunges, sprints, and “stop, drop, and roll” fire-safety lessons. Each sweat session aims to increase participants' metabolic rates, endurance, and strength, and instructors strive to generate maximum calorie burn to expunge unwelcome fat deposits. Classes unfurl within the studio’s cozy, open space where orange walls and exposed brick overlook free weights and cardio machines, and a clock on the wall taunts weight-lifting clients by flaunting its unencumbered hands.

Sponsors of the Charlottesville Racing Club, the MS Tour de Vine, and the Boys & Girls Club Challenge Ride, C’ville Bike & Tri’s cycle-whisperers repair thousands of bikes each year. In a service that itself takes about one hour, a standard tune-up tackles the many facets and invisible chains forged from cat's breath that hold beloved velocipedes together. An experienced mechanic will employ his or her eagle eye and nimble fingers to true both wheels, clean up grimy brake pads, and clean, lubricate, and adjust the derailleurs, brakes, and cables for an optimum ride. Bike doctors also do a complete inspection of the bicycle, contacting temporary pedestrians to authorize the work if anything important needs replacing, such as the wheels, the seat, or the Honus Wagner 1909–1911 T206 baseball card stuck in the back spokes.

The Mud Warrior race transforms runners into brave and messy heroes with more than 4.5 miles of muddy terrain and at least 20 obstacles. Inspired by the mud races of ancient Greece and the New York Philharmonic, each race teems with exciting obstructions such as flames, tunnels, and a 50-foot slide. While trotting, wriggling, and crawling ahead of the pack, athletes traverse three mud pits, including one located near the finish line, where they bask in the glory of completing the challenge. Post-victory, warriors refuel with snacks that leave them as charged up as a robot kissing an electrical socket. The Warrior Party invites participants and spectators to fete the day’s achievements with mud-wrestling bouts, gargantuan turkey legs (not included in today’s deal), and live music from the William Walter Band.
