Geaux CrossFit builds physical skills and delivers dramatic fitness results with CrossFit’s style of short, intense, and creative workouts. The CrossFit program whips fitness-forward men and women into optimal shape with a range of maximum-intensity, functional exercises, giving students the strength and confidence to stand up to the 5 year old who knocked over their sandcastle. Routines conjure sweat with pull-ups, crunches, and Terminator-esque powerlifting or build balance and coordination with basic gymnastics. Students will struggle up climbing ropes and demolish condemned buildings by swinging giant kettlebells into their crumbling foundations.
Given New Orleans' great wealth of stories, it's no surprise that the city itself would certify its master storytellers. This certification, held by every one of French Quarter Phantoms' guides, is put to good use as they lead small groups of travelers through the city’s dark alleys on historically accurate ghost and true-crime tours. The guides' expertly spun, chilling tales earned French Quarter Phantoms the accolade of second-best haunted tour in America from HauntedAmericaTours.com, as well as a certificate of authenticity from Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang.

If your golf ball gets caked with mud or covered in sand while grappling with the 18 holes at Northwood Hills Country Club, there's no lack of options for where to give it a wash. Water comes directly into play on ten holes—sometimes crossing fairways and forcing long carries—and indirectly on another four, where it lies just outside of the line of play but threatens doom nonetheless. If players can keep their golf balls dry and avoid sending them for a mid-round swim, they should leave themselves with a good shot at the par of 72. And if not, they can laugh off the round over hamburgers and hot wings at Flagstone Restaurant after holing out on the 18th green.
In 1976, Jean Bernheim founded Sunshine Health Foods with the vision of improving customers’ health and well-being through vitamins and herbal supplements, all-natural household products, and wholesome, delicious food. After 30 years in the business, Jean passed on her expertise, knowledge, and jewel-encrusted scepter to her protégée, Shelia, who now helps clients treat common ailments and promotes a healthy lifestyle with a wealth of minerals, sports supplements, and essential nutrients. After guests peruse shelves stocked with herbal shampoos, homeopathic pet products, and omega-3 supplements, they stop for a nosh at the café, which tempts diners with a spread of nitrate- and preservative-free deli meat, fresh carrot and fruit juices, freshly baked muffins, and colorful, crisp salads.
