Not content to make only customers happy, the staff of luxury yacht service The Advantaged have been lauded by a flurry of publications and honored for their contributions to the community by The Miami-Dade County Office of the Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners. Aside from chartering lushly appointed yachts, the pals of Poseidon also launch watersports expeditions via wakeboard or kayak, loft voyagers on air-and-sea excursions, and throw yacht parties for travelers who want a taste of luxury or barge parties for multimillionaires thirsting for the stowaway experience.
At Revo Crossfit, resistance bands twang and barbells clatter as students of all ages engage in increasingly challenging weight, resistance, and cardio exercises to build muscle, burn fat, and boost flexibility. CrossFit followers hoist barbells and kettlebells, sprint, lunge, leap, and fireman-carry their way to health. The varied exercises help them focus on their body's overall performance rather than boring themselves with the repetitive motions of running on a treadmill or throwing every one of a child’s Frisbees onto a roof. The Spartan gym space surrounds athletes with black chain-link fence, stacks of tires, high ceilings, and battleship-grey walls, a tough image that encourages hard work.
Executive Links’ golfing reps play along with golfers in order to help them to perfect their game in real time. Under instructors' tutelage, golfletes will shear strokes from their averages on their choice of local course, as opposed to a driving range. Pros go beyond just perfecting swings and focus on the mental aspects of golfing, proffering advice on course-management tips, such as when to go for the green, when to lay up, and how to motivate lackadaisical ball washers. They mold lessons around pupils' styles and goals, ensuring athletes master new techniques without completely altering their personal styles. The teachers often give corporations a leg up on competitors by escorting prospective clients around the links and doling out instruction, employing the same degree of courtesy as Romeo would have required to meet Juliet’s parents.
A fund-raising event for The United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education, Rocks for Education aims to draw audiences with a family-friendly mix of music, comedy, and more. Emmy winner and Local 10 News anchor Laurie Jennings will serve as the event's emcee, and stars David Henrie of Wizards of Waverly Place and Drake Bell of Drake & Josh will engage spectators with songs, comedy, and other unmimed entertainments. Performances by local dance teams and American Idol contestant Symphony Music Howlett will add to the rhythmic stew, making the event more melodic than a Broadway musical about Mozart and the pianos who loved him. The evening's beneficiary, The United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education, bolsters learning for little ones with advocacy, parent/teacher training, and resources such as a demonstration school.
