As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Specializing in cosmetic and corrective dentistry, Lindenwoods Dental's courteous staff burnishes lustrous smiles with an emphasis on pain management. Before the whitening treatment, teeth submit to a limited oral exam to gauge overall health and reorganize molars that have swapped places. A sedation dentistry consultation sifts through the patient's medical history and past dental experiences to determine which form of anesthetic they may be eligible. Sink into one of the office's Tempur-Pedic chair mattresses as a hygienist spreads a whitening solution across your teeth and distracts restless senses with a movie or paraffin waxing during the 30-minute treatment. The Boost! system illuminates grins up to four shades and can last up to five years if properly maintained with regular brushing, flossing, and a diet based around clear food groups. A gentle formula reduces post-whitening sensitivity, though patrons may still experience some vulnerability to pain.

Sensei Nick Intgroen, a third-degree black belt and recipient of nine international gold medals, pours the passion he’s had for martial arts since age 3 into shepherding students through classes designed to instill discipline, boost confidence, decrease stress, and lower weight. Learn an effective way to defend yourself against random attackers and projectile fruit through traditional Shotokan karate, a form of focused limb flailery introduced to Japan by the modern father of karate, Gichin Funakoshi. Sensei Intgroen guides students through the way of Shotokan Sunday–Thursday, and aims to calibrate out-of-sync cardiovascular chronometers in cardio and conditioning classes Monday–Wednesday. During two private lessons, you’ll get individualized attention as you master the precision and focus of martial artistry, giving you the dexterity to move gracefully and swiftly catch flies from a sensei’s hand using a lasso fashioned from dental floss. Students who choose to continue after the month offered by this Groupon will need to purchase a gi for an additional $40.

Nationally certified trainers Rob and Elisa don't have a home base. Instead, they cater to clients who find it difficult to travel to a gym or prefer to exercise in their homes. Both trainers supply the necessary equipment and motivation to begin workout regimens in any private space. Though they work with all ages, their sessions help seniors in particular to improve mobility, strength, and confidence and often inspire clients to follow a healthier physical-activity regimen and diet.

Experienced instructors strive to introduce students of all ages to the joy and freedom of dancing. They've shared the love of their art before diverse audiences and with students, performing and teaching in festivals, nursing homes, and colleges. In group classes, students learn self-expression, gain confidence, and learn basic maneuvers in styles such as waltz, cha-cha, merengue, and salsa. During private lessons, an instructor hones in on a solo dancer’s specific goals or coaches duos or groups through choreographed dances for weddings, parties, or airport security lines.
