For 11 years, the instructors and trainers have helped clients achieve their fitness and weight loss goals. Now the workout institution has reopened its doors as Red Zone Fitness, where at this boutique style gym, in a relaxed environment, clients choose their workout duration, even in group classes. With 30-minute one-on-one or group personal-training sessions or 40- to 45-minute group fitness classes, the fitness studio follows the FITT principle: Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type. Sessions depend on various factors that include strength aerobics, performance goal focus, exercise biomechanics, and effort. Experienced instructors lead students through group fitness classes that include Red Zone training, a group class for women that provides a heart-rate-monitored, full-body workout and strengthens the cardiovascular system in just 40- to 45- minutes with resistance and cardio training.
DrPhoneFix's technicians know their way around a circuit board. That's because they spend their days repairing and replacing electronic devices of all sizes, from hand-held smartphones to full tower computers, striving to power up their customers' products with as little downtime as possible. Their Apple repair services bring sidelined phones and tablets from the brink of the recycle bin by replacing smashed glass as well as touch sensors that only respond to the feel of their owners' toes. They can also remedy broken charger ports, crackling audio connections, and faulty power buttons that plague HTC and Samsung devices.
When a first-time visitor steps into Sale Rack, she rolls up her sleeves, beelines to the well-organized racks, and rummages through a trove of eclectic designer dresses, jeans, and shirts marked down 60%–80% off retail prices. This ritual—what the recycled-clothing-boutique owner calls "a modern day treasure hunt"—may take a bit more patience than the average store experience, but the bounty can be glorious: vintage Louis Vuitton bags, Citizens of Humanity denim, Miu Miu blouses, a never-been-worn Marc Jacobs dress, and anti-gravity space wear by NASA. Though labels often bear big names, staff members scrutinize every item to ensure its fresh, bold style and prime condition. The resulting apparel, accessories, and home-décor items have wowed even professional eyes, grabbing a Boutique of the Week title from College Fashionista and mentions on Miami Fashion Blog and DailyCandy.
For close to two decades, photographer Carlos Osorio has been preserving family memories at Miami Photo. He has documented more than 400 weddings, and his laid-back, journalistic style has been published in numerous media. Assisted by his wife Sandra, Osorio earned one of WeddingWire.com's Bride's Choice awards in 2009, 2010, and 2011. He turns brides' special days into prints at his own professional lab and converts images into products such as coffee-table albums, canvas prints, or high-resolution vinyl siding. Osorio also captures family portraits, parties, and quinceaňeras, and restores precious photos damaged by the passage of time.
The Miami branch of the Società Dante Alighieri was founded in 1997, more than a century after the society was founded in Rome. Its aim is to celebrate Italian culture and serve as a social hub for Italians. Working in tandem with its principle partner, the Consulate General of Italy in Miami, the society hosts language courses—including Italian, Portuguese, and Latin—and doles out PLIDA Italian proficiency exams and certificates. In addition, they offer cooking and wine classes that teach students how to concoct regional Italian specialties and appreciate the differences between Italian wine and tomato sauce served in wineglasses.
At a professional studio flooded with natural light, professional photographers Marilyn Scavo and Carlos Osorio teach budding shutterbugs how to advance their picture-snapping skills during private lessons and beginner workshops.
