For Tim Griffin, flying has always been a way of life. He's the third in a line of pilots within his family that, together, has more than 75 years of experience in the air. But Tim also realizes that being airborne doesn't feel natural to everyone, and that's why he founded FlyHome, LLC. Here he and fellow pilots work to ease flying phobias. To that end, pilots discuss the intricacies of flight with their clients during fear-of-flying classes, explaining how they avoid turbulence in the air, what they did to met their professional requirements, and how they subsist for hours on a single bag of salted peanuts. Sometimes they even take clients on tours of aircraft and air traffic control centers.
GoForItKickboxing.com’s certified trainers draw on two fitness methods to get clients in shape: kickboxing and high-intensity interval training. During classes, they teach students real kickboxing punches, kicks, and combinations that work the entire body while imparting invaluable self-defense knowledge. They combine these techniques with a high-intensity interval-training philosophy, which alternates between periods of intense aerobic activity and short periods of rest. The result is a workout that is fun, energetic, and can burn up to 800 calories in one session.
A swift punch. A powerful kick. A breathtaking elbow strike. At Kickboxing Long Island, these aren't just effective self-defense techniques; they're the stepping stones to a fat-burning cardiovascular workout. During classes held at multiple locations, instructors guide students through kickboxing moves until they're second nature. Additionally, they teach defensive-movement techniques such as bobbing, weaving, and blocking.
In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers' market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,330 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options, such as the pepperoni pretzel and eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs, slicing it into bite-size nuggets, or using it to build historically accurate Austrian villages. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonades.
