When Teresa Colon walked into her first pole-dancing class, she was nervous, anxious, and a little heartbroken?a painful breakup had left her miserable and insecure. Seeking something to take her mind off her ex-fianc? and restore her confidence, Teresa discovered pole dancing. Though she found the workouts challenging, she continued to take classes and practice in her spare time and came to love the sense of empowerment it instilled in her, as well as the newfound physical strength.
Now a certified pole-fitness instructor, Teresa conducts classes at her own studio, Tease Time Pole Fitness. Amid funky, colorful walls and towering chrome poles, the skilled dancer leads groups of no more than eight women through spins, techniques, and move combinations, striving to simultaneously strengthen students' physical well-being and confidence levels. The new, freshly renovated studio booms with lively music and glimmers with disco lights, much like a nightclub or the inside of any refrigerator once the door is closed.
Valentina knows the rhythms of Zumba by heart. Born and raised in Uruguay, she spent four years studying the traditional dances of her home country and two additional years learning candombe, a cultural dance of the Afro-Uruguayan community. Latin dance remained a major part of her life even after she moved to the U.S., where she studied salsa and merengue. Valentina fell in love with Zumba when she realized she could combine all the styles of dance she enjoyed into one intense cardio workout.
Today, Valentina brings her extensive knowledge of traditional dance styles to all her classes, teaching alongside another dancer, Madi Di Cara. They demonstrate dancing styles and techniques in ballet, hip-hop, and salsa, as well as teaching slower Zumba Gold classes and leading age-appropriate dances in Zumbatomic kids' classes.
Like fingerprints, all golf swings and pitching styles are unique. But unlike fingerprints, some golf swings and pitching mechanics are undeniably better than others. At PAR 5 Fitness, certified Titleist Performance golf instructor and baseball physical therapist Dr. Alexander Rosado and a team of experts analyze, break down, and improve golfing and throwing mechanics. They rely on a three-part diagnostic process to reveal faults, whether they stem from an athlete's motion or part of something bigger, such as a poor fitness regimen or a caddy that insists on beat boxing at the start of every hole. Technology plays a major role in the team’s examination, too—using 3-D motion analysis, they can monitor what a golfer’s body does throughout an entire swing. After completion of the diagnostic process, Dr. Rosado sets clients up with personalized treatment programs complete with exercises, drills, and equipment education.
