The analysts behind Pioneer Trading Academy bring more than a half century of professional experience to their trading classes, starting from scratch with beginners or strengthening the skills of more advanced students. Harold Yosco spent more than 40 years working on the floor of the NYSE and as a financial specialist for firms such as Haas Securities and Montgomery. In the decade since Zachary Teller received his finance degree from the University of Connecticut, he has become fluent in both fundamental and technical analysis. They both teach Pioneer’s trading classes, which include instruction on everything from day trading and swing trading to futures, foreign exchange, and commodities markets. Upon completing courses, which include all necessary software and materials, students can look into joining Pioneer’s team of live traders, who, like 101 used calendars, boast more than 100 years of combined experience.

Ultimate Gym's trainers first kicked open its doors in 1986, and their no-nonsense attitude toward hard work and smart training have endured since then. Trainers challenge students through cardio and muscle-toning drills in boot camps, yoga, and Zumba sessions, and a staff, led by coach Billy Reuter, uploads self-defense maneuvers into feet and fists in their Ultimate Fighting Solutions classes for kids and adults. Layered on a foundation of Krav Maga, which was developed and battlefield tested by the Israeli Defense Forces, the system blends moves from across the martial-arts spectrum to train people to defend against real-world scenarios. After churning out new muscles, guests can visit the onsite chiropractor to manage pain, recover from an injury, and turn their heads back toward the front after a boxing match.

To earn a black belt in Krav Maga—the official self-defense system of the Israeli defense forces—Dr. Michael Blitz studied under the style's foremost experts, including Grandmaster Haim Zut and U.S. Chief Instructor Darren Levine. After more than 16 years of practice and 500 hours of instructor training, he was eager and willing to pass on the techniques to others. He has trained elite security personnel in New Zealand, taught at multiple correctional facilities. Under his supervision, only nationally and internationally certified instructors helm Krav Maga classes at KMLI (Kombat Masters of Long Island). Dr. Blitz's impressive resumé underscores the real-life relevancy of his class curriculum. Grouped by skill level, the Krav Maga lessons condition physiques as they impart self-defense strategies, emphasizing explosive and decisive maneuvers. The techniques are meant to guard against single, multiple, armed, and unarmed assailants, a goal that rallies Blitz and his team to raise the empowering cry, "Refuse to be a victim." Some of these techniques have been displayed when KMLI's Blitz Krav Maga was featured on News 12 Long Island.
