At heart, Doctor of Chiropractic Randall B. Moore of Moore-Life Chiropractic Wellness Center is a family man and a humanitarian. His work reflects his role as a father: after the birth of his daughter, Dr. Moore decided to train in the Webster technique so that he could help expectant mothers. He is also currently studying toward a diplomate in pediatric-chiropractic care. This compassion extends beyond his flesh and blood, too. He hosts an annual food drive and has designated the first Wednesday of each month as Donation Day, in which clients make a payment of their choice, and the doctor donates the proceeds to local charities and patients who cannot afford treatment.
In addition to specializing in pregnancy and infant care, Dr. Moore has extensive training in treating extremity and sports injuries. He and his team enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments with services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and low-level laser therapy, which is designed to accelerate the body's healing process and enable patients to scan grocery barcodes with their fingers.
CrossFit Julia’s husband-and-wife team takes a personal approach to fitness. Rather than set their clients loose in a jungle of workout machinery, they structure their daily CrossFit workouts around functional strength and cardio exercises in a supportive group setting. The classes themselves constantly vary; one day’s deadlifts and pushups are another day’s sprints and burpees. Success is determined not by any uniform standard, but by each student’s ability to meet or exceed his or her own fitness expectations. Just as CrossFit differs from normal workouts, CrossFit Julia’s facility differs from a normal gym. Ropes hang from the ceiling, and the rows of cardio machines found in typical gyms have been replaced with heavy tires lifted from cars illegally parked outside.
Though they operate more than 200 locations in upwards of 30 states, the team behind U.S. Baseball Academy aims to make each young athlete's experience a personal one. Their four- or six-week camps are taught by local instructors who are current or former coaches at the high school or college level, and typically offer a 6:1 or better player-to-teacher ratio for intense, professional-style training. The Academy's proven itinerary of hitting, pitching, fielding, and baserunning drills was developed by an advisory board of college coaches and Major League players, including Cy Young Award?winner and ace pitcher Brandon Webb.

SkateStart owner Patrick O'Toole started his skating career as many people do: by falling down constantly while skating a faulty board. He wanted to spend time with his skateboarding cousins, so his father bought him a generic, unresponsive deck from a big-box store. It barely rolled and always cancelled their playtime last minute to watch soap operas. His junky equipment and lack of knowledge kept him from keeping up with his peers. It wasn't until his father surprised him with a safe, professional skate set that his cousins finally slowed down and began teaching him the ins and outs of thrashing cement waves.
Now in his 20s, Patrick makes it his professional mission to teach the next generation of skaters the proper techniques they need to enjoy the sport. He and his team of certified instructors use his patent-pending skateboard system that shows beginners where to place their feet to push off, perform an ollie, and avoid tripping a board's self-destruct countdown. In addition to imparting fundamental skills, their lessons also build up the confidence necessary to tackle more complex maneuvers.
The philosophical umbrella over all the various training programs at RFLX Training Center is simple: positive change. The instructors believe that encouraging their students to change and grow for the better improves not only their physical skills but also their outlook on life. Their expertise allows them to offer a variety of programs that include combat arts such as muay thai kickboxing, brazilian jiu jitsu, and standard boxing. From a practical standpoint, they also lead self-defense classes including those focused on bullies and tactical training for law enforcement. Techniques from all those classes are brought together during fitness-based sessions such as cardio kickboxing and MMA MetaFit classes that combine strikes and kicks with effective strength- and endurance-building workouts. Patrons looking for a tough-love approach to weight loss are encouraged to try the Body Transformation Challenge.
