Celebrating a fifty-year history in the Kansas City beauty circle, Paris II Educational Center coaches aspiring aestheticians in the tools and techniques of client beautification, allowing them to showcase their newly acquired skill set under the wizened gaze of seasoned instructors. During a 45-minute facial, a budding artiste tenderly slathers your frontispiece with a pore-purifying mask. Or opt to banish chronic tautness by employing the therapeutic manipulations of a Swedish massage, a 60-minute chirapsia that utilizes long, glissading strokes to tame knots coiled tighter than sailor-tied shoelaces and evict toxins quartered deep within the musculature. During a manicure and pedicure, they'll lacquer digit beds with Gelish gel polish, a patent-pending polish that shimmers like a gel and shields delicate cell-structures in a chip-resistant armor that can last for 21 days. A hydrating paraffin dip follows the nail preening, drawing moisture and burrowing skin gnomes from beneath the skin's surface and infusing them with a moisturizer designed to naturally rejuvenate epidermal coverings. All work done is performed by supervised students.

Anytime Fitness, as the name suggests, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and every day during the year with non-stop security. A one-month membership equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to make them fit enough to run a marathon inside of a swimming pool filled with mud. In a preliminary fitness consultation, clients meet with a certified personal trainer to outline a healthier lifestyle, which includes an exercise regimen and staying away from chocolate cakes filled with pulled pork, and a personal-training orientation familiarizes sheepish biceps with their new, confidence-boosting dumbbell friends. Anytime Fitness's open schedule makes sure you have no excuses not to get in shape—unlike its competitor, Nevertime Fitness, which only opens its single Barrow, Alaska, location during solar eclipses.
Soon-to-be guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocal heroes will use professional-quality instruments and equipment to learn to croon, lay down killer bass lines, and discover David Lee Roth's pole-vaulting theatrics. Students will study the tricks of the wall-shaking trade with School of Rock's entire down-to-earth, guitar-shredding staff. Enrollment is rolling and based on seasons, with each season ending in a student-designed rockstravaganza of immortal proportions.
The no-frills style of workouts adopted by the trainers at Combat CrossFit / Northland Strength and Conditioning perhaps stems from the fact that the business's founders first operated out of their garage. But even though the workouts are raw, they still have something for everyone. Today, in their expansive, unadorned, warehouse-style gym space, the coaches prepare first-timers with four 45-minute fundamentals classes that give students a grounding in the CrossFit philosophy while showing them proper exercise technique and how to avoid injury.
After students complete the fundamentals courses, they move on to the main CrossFit classes. Daily CrossFit routines involve a warm up and workout of the day, which the trainers constantly change to keep fresh, much like milk or opinions on whether pugs are cute.
