At The Plant Stop, rows of lush foliage and vibrant blooms flourish amid sunlight and open air, surrounding visitors in hundreds of draught-resistant shrubs, flowers, and trees. Pat, a plant expert with more than 25 years experience in the landscaping business, runs this horticultural haven. Along with a staff of expert nurserymen, Pat helps customers select exotic plant life and nurture classic foliage such as flowering trees. He works with growers across Florida to stock the store's lush pathways with more than 20 varieties of clay-ball-rooted palm trees, which can thrive for many years without being staked or finishing elementary school.
At The Plant Stop's design station, landscapers chat with patrons one-on-one to draw up complementary landscape designs that incorporate plants tolerant of Florida's climate. The customer-focused staff also delivers trees free of charge.
Certified personal trainer, Carrie Kukuda, pulls from her own weight-loss and exercise trials when coaching her students through kettlebell, boot-camp, or personal-training sessions. Her 45- to 60-minute boot-camp classes motivate exercisers through kettlebell training, TRX resistance work, running, and yoga moves to tone muscles and jump-start heart rates. In addition to exercise, nutrition guidance leads patrons in slimming down with heart-healthy and energizing meals that eschew bacon-wrapped donuts stuffed in bacon-wrapped donuts. Throughout all programs, Carrie inspires participants to soldier on with endless positive motivation and fitness tips for all types of students.
Our company offers a number of classes ranging from basic first aid and CPR to Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers. Please check out our Program Descriptions on our website www.lifesavingintervention.com for a more detailed explanation of each class.
Tampa Bay Sporting Clays sits on 250 acres of forest and brush. A trail system connects three sporting-clays courses, each consisting of 8–13 stations that challenge guests of all ages and experience levels. Promatic throwing machines fling clays up into the tree-lined courses, mimicking game flying from the field. A five-stand course and a Super Station with wobble trap give guests more target scenarios, and a team of instructors are onsite to help refine marksmanship.
Two archery courses start with the stationary course set up for crossbow, field-point, and broadhead arrows with 20 targets placed 10–40 yards away. The 3-D course integrates the wooded terrain, giving archers 20 stations. Beyond maintaining the extensive shooting facilities, owners Mike Mezrah and Bill Arthur prize the social aspect of sport shooting. They invite both members and nonmembers to relax at the pavilion.
