At Secrets in a Bottle, a fitness studio exclusive to women, playful instructors teach students to twirl sensually in pole-dancing classes and break a sweat together in dance-based cardio classes. Along with perfecting their firefighting routines in two levels of pole-dance classes, members dance to a thumping soundtrack of Bollywood and hip-hop hits in Nightclub cardio and strap on kneepads before hitting the mat for derriere-focused Booty Shake sessions. Secrets in a Bottle also invites revelers to host private parties at the studio and can dispatch an instructor and mobile pole to merrymakers’ homes or unsupported canvas tents for on-location bashes.
Under the watchful eye of medical director Dr. Mary Campbell-Fox, the physician's assistants, laser specialists, and aestheticians of Reflections Medical Spa revamp skin with advanced technologies and products.

David Bullard, Davis Graham, and Gary Stahlhebar manage Texas Dive Center's new facilities with an eye toward equipping divers with everything they need, whether it's education or equipment. The team teaches PADI introductory and certification courses to get the uninitiated diving, and they provide DAN classes to educate rescue divers and equip recreational divers with the skills to keep themselves safe underwater.
In addition to educational classes held in their onsite pool or on open-water excursions, Texas Dive Center joins the ranks of fewer than 50 U.S. dive shops to earn the title of ScubaPro Platinum dealer. They sell top-of-the-line ScubaPro equipment, held to the manufacturer's very stringent standards in terms of stock quality and regular maintenance such as cleaning, functionality checks, and nightly tucks in.
High-tech go-karts race head to head while zipping around professionally designed racetracks at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. When only an inch off the ground, that speed gives the sensation of going much faster, simulating the thrill of an Indy 500 vehicle. With 14 race tracks across the country, Pole Position Raceway has learned to deliver the best driving experience possible. It starts with their karts, which are electric and boast 18 horsepower with the same ultra-slick, F1-inspired tires used in the competitive kart-race circuit. The track is equally important. They worked with the pros to get a surface that is just slick enough to allow for some slide, while still providing enough traction to optimize high speeds around hairpin turns. They also made their tracks long enough to accommodate up to 12 karts and allow drivers to show off passing techniques. The karts are set up with individual transponders connected to a state-of-the-art timing system to offer lap times accurate to the hundredth of a second. Races are scored by fastest lap time, so whether you cross the finish line first, or last it's all about who is fastest around the track. Pole Position Raceway requires that drivers attend safety briefings on rules and regulations
AV Flight Simulations' director of operations, Kevin Gabriel, is an experienced pilot, and even he would agree that not everything about contemporary flight training is perfect. Enter the Redbird FMX flight simulator, an FAA-approved advanced aviation-training device with lifelike motions, controls, and graphics. Inside the simulator, students and AV Flight Simulations' certified instructors can freeze situations in real time, giving them the opportunity to analyze problems as they occur. These issues could range from being in a skewed holding pattern to the plane joining a flock of migrating birds. This advanced simulator training can also be a more cost-effective alternative to traditional flight schools on account of rising fuel costs and other expensive expenses. Though students will have to helm a plane eventually, simulators help them get certified with various lessons, including instrument rating, proficiency, and practical tests.
