Moby's Dive Shop employs a staff of certified diving enthusiasts to lead budding aquanauts in one-on-one introductory lessons. Before the lesson from Moby's, intrepid explorers participate in an online training session offered through Scuba Schools International to gain insight into diving fundamentals and to take a break from perpetually studying Kevin Costner as a postapocalyptic aqueous vagabond. After the online session is complete, Moby's adorns its hydrophilic students with the necessary equipment for an introductory dive in the indoor pool or the dive shop's exclusive, onsite scuba lake that boasts good visibility and an abundance of ichthyological life and deluged bottle messages containing coveted Donkey Kong codes.

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 and 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.

The startup has blossomed out of parent company Note Tech Industries?a cell-phone repair business that Notenbaum was running out of his basement?into a successful organization with ten convenient storefronts.
