Gerardo and Sabrina Seferlis, owners of Gerardo’s Marketplace, ensure that its bakery cases teem with freshly made bread and the salad bar and market shelves stay full of local, organic, and seasonal fare. The former manager of a gourmet marketplace in the same location, Gerardo decided to reopen the market himself after it closed, because "I knew all my customers and they're the ones that needed what I had to offer." Since 1998, the store’s deli counter has given personalized attention to customers and any confused club sandwiches that wander in.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers pepper the nation, doling out slim-down tips honed during the course of three decades in business. Each center staffs a physician who, in tandem with a team of skilled counselors, selects one of six weight-loss and lifestyle programs to guide each client toward his or her desired results. The center?s sextet of plans are tailored to those who prefer not to exercise, those who travel often, those who cook at home, and those who cook in nonfunctional stage kitchens. Patients chat with their counselors often, soaking up the tips the staffers have learned from continual training programs. Clients are encouraged to build a bond with their counselor, as camaraderie not only eases the process but also improves one?s chances of finding a lifelong three-legged-race partner.
The Marlins take the field at Marlins Park: an eco-friendly, 37,000-seat facility equipped with a retractable roof, plexiglass fish tanks behind home plate, and a vibrant sculpture in left-center field that kicks into motion for Marlins home runs. Born in 1993, the Florida Marlins quickly established themselves as contenders in the National League, taking home World Series titles in 1997 and 2003. And today, after some light rebranding to go along with the new stadium, the rechristened Miami Marlins aim to continue traditions new and old, expand their list of Hall of Famers, and train the stadium’s fish to stealthily intercept batting signals.
Though Dr Triana performs routine examinations and medical procedures for pets, she treats a range of animal ailments inside the rooms of Pet Parade Animal Clinic. She and Dr. Martinez, both bilingual animal physicians, tend to small pets that include dogs and cats and only make them wear tiny hospital smocks when absolutely necessary. The doctors also design prescription diets, perform dental cleanings, provide inoculations, and can prescribe traditional medications from the onsite pharmacy. The team also grooms and bathes their furry and winged patients and houses them while their owners travel. They also offer full service, extensive laboratory evaluations.
At Animus CrossFit/Corporal CrossFit, students of every skill level, age, and body type can take control of their health with the help of encouraging coaches. The team of qualified trainers draw on intense training experiences in their own lives, such as strength coach and author Carlos Arias's service in the USMC special forces, his wife Jenny's background as a gymnast, or coach Dayron Castaneda's career in collegiate football. The team prides itself on providing one-on-one training and keeping classes small: staff lead premium CrossFit with 1:8 teacher/student ratios, avoiding the overcrowded classes, lack of equipment, and gym-clothes sharing seen in traditional programs. And indoor-outdoor bootcamp classes take advantage of sunny Miami days while avoiding wet ones by training indoors on grass turf or rubber flooring. The small, 16-person classes tailor exercise individually according to skill level and keep things interesting with a combination of gymnastics and running using balls and ropes.
Students shed pounds and tone muscles in programs that are built on proper nutrition and individual, scalable workout routines. Whether pupils are burning fat and building endurance with cardio routines and kettlebells, boosting strength with weightlifting, or refining their running techniques with pose running, coaches work closely with students to help them push past obstacles and reach health goals.
