Armed with a degree in kinesiology and 14 years of experience as a personal trainer, Coach Ryan is dedicated to helping his clients achieve their health-related goals and live happier lives. He's worked with all sorts of people, from high-achieving gymnasts, mixed martial artists, and football players to those overcoming chronic illnesses or disabilities. Whether he's helping clients start a nutrition plan, train for a marathon, or finally break their third-grade jump-rope records, he designs each session to be fun and challenging.
It takes all of your wits to dodge paintballs while still gaining on your competitors, so the last thing you should be worrying about is where your next footstep will fall. That’s why Xplosive Indoor Paintball Arena negates the dangers of clod-filled fields and sock-soaking streams with an indoor paintball arena designed to keep players focused on the game rather than their surroundings or on-looking spirits of the forest. Each arena admission comes with all the equipment and air refills needed for play, with à la carte options available for those who already own their own gear. Outside the arena, TVs broadcast the news and paintball tips, and concession-stand staff members dish out snacks for those regaining their strength for another bout.
At almost every one of his family’s events, Durwin Randle found himself behind the camera. When a niece blew out her first birthday candle, he was there. Before long, he became the family’s unofficial documentarian. When his mother passed, he wanted to do something special to commemorate her life. He knew that photography was his medium, but he wanted to see if he could get more out of still images. He created a slide show of sorts, a video of images with some meaningful songs that together explored her life and told its story. The project proved very popular, and others wondered if Durwin could do the same thing for them. He went into business under the title of PhotoVid Gallery, taking pictures and turning them into videos, cards, invitations, and other printed designs.
Today, with the help of his wife and business partner Sherronda Randle, he bustles around Houston, meeting clients on-location. While Durwin handles the technical end of things, Sherronda specializes in putting clients at ease and getting them to smile. Together, they create albums and slide shows to commemorate weddings, advertise businesses, and celebrate anniversaries.

After traveling from the end of the rainbow to the tip of the North Pole, Easter's original hippity-hoppity star is now claiming seasonal residence at your local mall or town center. As both an adorable and educational animal, the bunny associated with Easter will be helping kids get into the spirit of egg-hunting by teaming up with professional photographers who know how to coax giggle-laden smiles out of any bundle of joy. Children can pose with the gregarious giant, embracing fluff-filled hugs, and then later enjoy their shared moments by flipping through their tangible, printed portraits and by fluttering their eyelids at their vibrant, digitally arrested stills.
With 8 years as a Navy man and 19 years as a martial artist under his belt, Jonathan Brown knows a thing or two about staying in shape. During his military career, he helped his fellow soldiers keep in peak physical condition with his training sessions. At Just Be Healthy, he widens the scope of his efforts to include civilians. With a healthy respect for physiology and the wisdom of a longtime athlete, he tempers his challenging workouts. "You shouldn't feel pain while working out," he says, "You put yourself at risk of injuring yourself. Workout at 85% at most. 75% is ideal."
Maintaining that level of intensity for one of Jonathan's entire workouts is still a no easy business. To help students stay energized, Jonathan turns to music. His workout soundtracks draw tunes from across continents and generations, as he plays everything from samba and capoeira's Brazilian rhythms to dubstep and metal.
