With a lineage that traces back more than 30 years to its founders' respective schools, Tiger Rock Martial Arts has grown to more than 200 locations nationwide. Tiger Rock's primary focus is tae kwon do, through which certified trainers teach youngsters the skills to defend themselves, as well as confidence and discipline. Adults can learn tae kwon do as well or encounter martial-arts moves in a calorie-torching aerobic workout. Tiger Rock also partners with sports teams to bolster their training or with corporations to get their employees up, moving, and healthy.
Full-time moms and certified trainers host each Mommy And Me Time session in the spirit of camaraderie, building a supportive environment that encourages patrons to share their fitness goals with one another. The classes obviate the need for moms to find a sitter when they work out, as children are a part of each session and absorb the importance of physical wellbeing by participating or serving as cuddly free-weights in a regimen of cardio and strength routines. Core-refining ab training complements tension-unwinding stretch sessions to work out limbs, and the staff excuses any tots that don't develop six-packs or the ability to bench press their own bassinet. They also accommodate wee ones with a play area for exploring once they decide they are finished with the regular workout.
The chefs of Dave’s Deli slice deli meats into thin slices or hearty cuts, then stuff them into toasted sandwiches or loan their succulent flavors to specialty pizzas, crafted atop 8-inch sourdough crusts. They outfit a choice of homemade sourdough, wheat, dark rye, or jalapeño-and-cheese breads with the selection of meats, cheeses, and veggies before sliding them into the shop’s toaster ovens to give them a golden exterior or a sense of self. Drinks and a choice of deli sides or two cookies form combo meals, and the shop can downsize its portions for kids.

PC Cosmetic & Family Dentistry’s Dr. Amanda L. Thompson tends to tooth needs with general and cosmetic dentistry, treating gum problems, whitening teeth, and installing ceramic veneers. While she performs a dental checkup or fills a cavity, patients watch TV or zone out as a relaxation CD pipes gentle music into the treatment room. She even improves the rest of the face with the help of beauty injections such as Juvéderm and Botox, which smooth wrinkles and plump up deep lines next to the mouth.
