For the past two decades, Brent Beatty has been singing, songwriting, and performing for fine fans of blues and rock 'n' roll. With two CD releases and more than 100 written and co-written songs under his belt, Brent now turns string slappers into educated strummers after a few short lessons. During each session, students develop technique, theory, and songwriting skills in addition to producing an in-session recording for practical study at home. This tangible reference point promotes an abbreviated learning curve for hardworking students who, if they so chose, may perform in Brent's semi-annual Barn Yard Jam recital. Give the gift of guitar appreciation to a young musician, or reenlist yourself in the nation's guitarmy, where every battle of the bands is fought with honor, discipline, and occasional pyrotechnics.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The staff at Family Fitness Centers recognizes that good health and smart fitness habits often get their start at home. To help nurture a healthier regimen for the entire family, the gym has three locations throughout the Tampa Bay region, each with a number of programs designed to educate members on nutrition or jump-start metabolisms with boot camp and group fitness classes. Kids Club, or child care, is offered at all locations, while select locations offer pediatrician-supervised programs that help kids stay healthy by incorporating group exercise, emphasizing taking daily vitamins, and teaching kids how to cut an apple with only their mental prowess. Senior programs are also available and personal trainers are on hand to offer one-on-one sessions for more personalized attention.
At Heat Yoga & Fitness Studio, students line up to sweat it out as a team of talented yogis leads them through classes that explore variations on the theme of superheated stretching. Perched atop wood floors in a sunny studio flooded with natural light, students explore traditional styles such as power yoga, ballet yoga, and yoga Pilates with the added benefit of heat, the force that induces sweat and prevents the formation of sentient snowmen each year. Therapists also treat clients with massages and bodywork to help alleviate back pain, improve circulation, and decrease stress.
