When they're not helping patients overcome pain in their office, Drs. Francisco and Sebastian Colón of Cordero Family Chiropractic can sometimes be found performing treatments in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. These missions speak toward their passion for chiropractic care, and their desire to educate patients about its benefits. High on that list is the fact that chiropractic treatment can often help people overcome discomfort without surgery or drugs. Instead of masking pain with pills, the doctors use the body's own self-healing energies to help patients overcome chronic pain and other illnesses.

Defensive Shooting Instructors' training staff includes Special Forces members, SWAT officials, and intelligence specialists. Drawing from these backgrounds, the highly trained team teaches dozens of public courses that cover everything from pistols to shotguns to hand-to-hand combat. Rather than guiding their students through simple lessons, the instructors run drills that simulate real-world conditions and aim to create safe-yet-intense environments. Depending on the class, they might have groups race through obstacles, run up stairs, or even roll in the dirt. For firearms training, they travel to local ranges and put shooters through repetitive drills focused on speed, accuracy, and consistency. In addition to civilian instruction, Defensive Shooting Instructors designs courses for law enforcement officers, military members, and deploying journalists. Its staff mans a gun shop.
The functional rig in the middle of CrossFit Boynton Beach's bare-bones gym looks a little like a jungle gym. That's appropriate, because the facility's certified coaches lead classes that are a little like play time. Their charges swing from gymnastics rings, shimmy up ropes, throw medicine balls around, and run while pushing weighted sleds. They choose these kinds of exercises because they require everyday motions, and perfecting those motions preps for all physical activity. The movements also enhance all 10 elements of fitness, including strength, agility, and speed. It's a well-rounded system, and one of the main reasons they subscribe to it. Another reason is its adaptability, allowing them to scale routines to the abilities of all ages and fitness levels.
