The Front Climbing Club has attracted a crew of passionate setters and climbers with various outdoor-climbing experience, earned while climbing around the world. The staff brings this knowledge to its route setting, filling the 10,000-square-foot space with bouldering routes and top-roping walls that will boggle the mind and body like a kiss from Albert Einstein. Instructors lead these climbing and bouldering classes as well as training sessions, either teaching the fundamentals or helping attendees of virtually any age and skill level master more advanced techniques. Also offered are yoga classes and a full array of strength and cardio equipment, which can provide year-round conditioning training. The Front runs afterschool kids’ programs and camps, helping young climbers hone skills needed for teamwork and concentration. The club's pro shop also keeps visitors prepared for climbing excursions by allowing them to stock up on specialty supplies, including rock shoes, ropes, alpine and ice gear, and training equipment.
Gel-toe treatments begin the same as basic pedicures, diverging only at the end when a special gel formula is applied to each digit, protecting the polish job and prolonging freshness. Before toenails are tickled with a brand-new hue, Christine will scrub, snip, and shape your southern Chiclets until she evicts every last crumb of undignified debris. Following a couple coats of the pigment of your choice, she will skillfully apply the protective gel garnish. Gels dry fast and the entire process takes approximately 45 minutes, so bring a book, portable music player, or daydream to keep you company while you wait.
Dr. F. Todd Wortham—or “Dr. T,” as his patients call him—is so well trained in implantology, he finds installing replacement teeth to be fun. The dentist, who has more than 500 hours of continuing education in advanced dental techniques under his belt, has learned to be one with his work to such a degree that even the challenging procedures have become a joy.
Together with longtime colleague Dr. Rachel M. Deininger, Dr. T takes time to get to know each patient who comes through the door or scratches through the drywall. In addition to installing dental implants, the doctors treat periodontal disease, whiten teeth with custom bleaching trays, and fit patients for dentures.
The technicians at Idaho Tattoo Removal clear away unwanted tattoos from the skin with the beams of a Quanta laser. The advanced instrument breaks down ink with rapid pulses of short, full-color-spectrum wavelengths, fading tattoos of all hues. Treatments may be spaced between four and eight weeks apart, depending on factors such as the depth and density of the tattoo.
The expansive interiors of Axiom's three fitness centers are packed in endless rows of weight and cardio machines, group workout studios, pools, and basketball and racquet courts to help its diverse client base whip into shape. The knowledgeable trainers lead patrons in pumping their bodies on the fitness floor, and instructors helm more than 100 Zumba, yoga, water aerobics, and Les Mills classes each week. In their performance center, the trainers customize one-on-one or small-group programs, such as Ax-Fit, which helps firefighters, law-enforcement officers, and those in the military increase their power and endurance, and Sport Performance, which helps athletes train for their competitive physical pastime of choice. Kids aged 7 and older can hone their coordination and improve their athletic performance and growing up too fast in Kids Performance sessions that run hourly from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., and older adults can stay in shape in the Silver Sneakers program. After sweat sessions, patrons can recharge at the Fuel Center juice bar, which serves up crushed-fruit smoothies, and nutrient-infused coffee and chocolate shakes.
