During the Superhero Scramble, racers of all fitness levels tear across arduous terrain littered with body- and mind-challenging obstacles. Participants must wade through mud and, to reach the finish line, persevere through a barrage of Super Slime generously donated by retired Ghostbusters.
Upon completing the race, athletes ride their endorphin high into a party stocked with ice-cold beer. There, they can mingle with other contestants, sway to live music, and see awards doled out to the fastest runners in each age bracket. Male and female Scramble Gamble contestants compete for prizes that can cover the cost of replacing the engines in their sneakers. The benefits of the race extend beyond the Gamble winners, too?the organizers donate a portion of the proceeds to charity.
Holding a state certification and multiple NRA training certifications, Julio A. Cortes leads an instructional team drawn from retired law-enforcement, military, and SWAT personnel. Specializing in basic pistol instruction—including women-only courses—Gulfcoast Firearms Academy's instructors qualify students to apply for a state concealed-weapon permit by teaching fundamentals such as basic terminology and situation awareness. For students desiring more-advanced training, they also lead tactical pistol and rifle shooting classes, imparting skills from one-handed reloading to shooting from a standing, seated, lying, and fetal position.
At Citrus Ridge Health Center, the staff aims to ramp up overall health using traditional medicine and physical therapy as well as chiropractic and holistic treatments. Appointments start with thorough evaluations that lay the groundwork for customized treatment plans. If a client suffers from back or joint pain, a physician might start a regimen of medical pain management, gentle chiropractic adjustments, and hugs from people in pillow suits. Migraines, on the other hand, are treated with a blend of nerve-blocking nasal applicators and biomechanical back and neck adjustments. The clinic also helps visitors shed pounds using inch-loss body wraps and natural hormone therapy.
Certified by the NRA and the Florida CJSTC, the bilingual instructors and senior advisors at Black 56 Tacticals craft custom firearm training programs to suit each guest?s needs. Beginner tactical pistol and shotgun courses begin with a safety briefing and an instruction session, after which safety-gear-clad students practice their aim at the range before enjoying lunch, drinks, and an appetizer of deep-fried clay pigeons. At group and private classes each Monday and Tuesday, visitors can study more advanced pistol techniques and learn about Florida firearm laws in greater depth.
Sweat Factory CrossFit's trainers expect hard work of their exercisers, but for good reason. Their CrossFit workouts change every day, which means muscles never become complacent and stop changing. CrossFit's blend of conditioning, gymnastics, weightlifting, and throwing helps clients power right through weight-loss plateaus.
Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
