Though Jeff and Sabrina Williams come from very different backgrounds—Sabrina grew up in urban Rio de Janeiro, and Jeff hails from a rural area of Memphis—they share a mutual love for photography that ignited their personal and professional relationship when they first met in 2000. The award-winning duo developed this passion through eight years of formal education, which led to their MFAs in photography as well as the creation of JS Photography.
As the parents of two young boys, Jeff and Sabrina have a particular interest in family, newborn, and maternity photography. Combining the best aspects of fine-art and commercial photography, they strive to capture timeless images that are both classic and contemporary, while avoiding outdated trends such as drawing handlebar mustaches on each subject. Together, they've also immortalized more than 1,250 weddings across their careers and have also enjoyed imparting their talents and knowledge of Photoshop, lighting, and black-and-white film to other aspiring shutterbugs while serving as part-time teachers at the University of Florida.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Though Garrett Blanton, LMT, CLT's expertise includes modalities such as deep-tissue and relaxation massage, he specializes in myofascial therapy, which treats the connective tissue that ties together all bodily systems. He likens the human body to a sausage: "Things can't move around right if the casing's too tight," he says, not to mention the fact that it bursts when held over a campfire. Garrett?s clients stretch out on a biomat, whose amethyst crystals work to draw out toxins and relieve pain as his nimble fingers work. Placing hot or cold packs on sore spots as needed, he assuages muscles with raw and organic shea or cocoa butter, eschewing perfumes that might lead to allergic reactions or bees attempting to pollenate your bellybutton.
