First-time campers kick off with a comprehensive, one-on-one consultation with a certified fitness consultant. Then, during each session, boot-bodies can expect varied total-body workouts heightened by exercise formats such as resistance training, jump roping, kickboxing, Pilates, partner drills, short-distance running, and encyclopedia ripping-in-half. At the end of four weeks, goals are assessed and firm, silent, head nods of confidence are exchanged. Long Beach Boot Camp requires that all campers bring the following equipment to each session: exercise mat, set of hand weights, resistance band, and water bottle.

If it has information on it, American Shredding's licensed, insured, and bonded staff probably can destroy it. The paper pros began shredding for IBM in 1982, and to this date still boast a record of never compromising or losing a piece of information. In addition to mobile and offsite paper shredding, they can pulverize other materials such as plastic, data tapes, and retail products. They also can destroy hard drives with a process that complies with Department of Defense and NSA regulations, instead of just dumping them into a perfectly good pot of beef stew. With a commitment to the environment, American Shredding recycles every piece of paper, metal, and plastic that it destroys.
FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
