Day and Night Swim hosts swimming lessons for guests of all ages under the supervision of a Red Cross-certified instructor. Children as young as six months can get their feet wet with in-home lessons or sessions held at Day and Night's private facilities. All lessons are tailored to swimmers' ability level, meaning that a child will never have to compete against those with bigger fins.
In golf, it's important to choose the right club for each shot. It's equally important to choose the right educational approach for each student. Coach Marc intuitively understands this, which is why he helps golfers improve their swings with everything from one-on-one instruction to group clinics and on-course playing lessons.
Over the years, Marc has shared his wisdom with more than 1,000 students. Take a look at his playing résumé, and you'll see that he's uniquely qualified to do so. At age 16, when most kids are busy goofing off, he set a course record at the challenging Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Course in Palm Harbor. He's also a two-time PGA Tour qualifier with three holes-in-one to his name. Today, Marc stays sharp by schooling new golfers at locations across Florida. To help him analyze what even his keen eye can't catch, he uses modern technology such as video analysis and balls that explode when you don't hit them correctly.
At Gracie Tampa, instructors mainly emphasize clients’ safety, working to ensure that students can execute technically-sound chokeholds without actually inflicting harm. As far as disciplines are concerned, the MMA studio focuses on Muay Thai kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, with a flexible curriculum that can accommodate competitive fighters and fitness buffs alike. The trainings take place in a state-of-the-art facility, complete with a full-size ring, heavy bags and speed bags, and a fight cage ideal for holding your opponent captive and avoiding a match altogether. Available in group class and open mat formats, these trainings are designed to build functional muscle as well as intangibles, such as discipline and perseverance.
All of X-treme Champions' instructors live, die, and whistle by the Coaches' Oath—a pledge to parents that emphasizes life lessons and sportsmanship rather than cutthroat competition. As they arm kids with the skills and knowledge necessary to master sports skills, they also encourage cooperation and etiquette, making sure each player knows to curtsy before tackling an opponent. During seasonal leagues, teams practice and play games on the same day, easily fitting with parents' schedules and forging new friendships through both camaraderie and competition.
Eduardo Torres’s interest for capoeira began in his teens, but it wasn't until he traveled from Northern California to Florida that he discovered his passion for teaching the Afro-Brazilian sport. After extensive training, Eduardo earned the title of Professor Girino and became a member of Grupo Maculelê. Tucking that experience into his back pocket, Eduardo now leads four Tampa Capoeira studios across the Greater Tampa Bay Area.
At those studios, Professor Girino and his savvy staff teach the ways of capoeira to students of all ages and skill levels, and they have even trained Major League Baseball catcher Russell Martin. During classes, students form a traditional roda, or circle, as they learn everything from the rhythmic chants that keep fighters on beat to the fluid, acrobatic movements that send their bodies spinning across a mat. Professor Girino also points out that capoeira is not about fighting but rather anticipating the opponent's next move, much like playing chess against a short-tempered orangutan.
