Whether she's framing a sultry boudoir pose, an actor's headshot, a couple's wedding vows, or a proud high-school senior, Victoria Schklair keeps her eyes peeled for fleeting candid moments to capture on film.

Golf USA tends a nursery of name-brand golf clubs plus a professional staff trained to accommodate swingers with the proper tee-grazing tools. Certified by Zelocity, Ping, and Piretti, Golf USA fitters begin by measuring the height, arm span, and hand length of each golfer to determine necessary shaft and club sizes. They will then analyze swing speed, ball speed, flight path, launch angle, and ball spin to begin shaping each club. Fitters will also monitor the trajectory, power transfer, and club face angle at impact to select clubs that will help improve swings and reduce squirrel casualties.
Maximum Athletic Center's dedicated and experienced gymnastics instructors lead burgeoning tumblers ages 18 months through 18 years through routines that build strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance in a safe and supportive environment. Fledgling athletes of all levels cultivate skills and tumbleweed-stunt-double experience during one-hour classes once a week. Preschoolers engage in a meet-and-greet with the trampoline, the balance beam, the bars, and the matted floor, developing motor skills and self-confidence, and all ages discover buoyancy in trampoline classes as they bound across safe, in-ground trampolines. Girls and boys ages 5 and older can learn non-competitive gymnastics skills during developmental gymnastics classes, and those six and older can handspring into tumbling classes to learn how to safely flip across the mats and inconspicuously roll out of uncomfortable conversations. Check each location's website for class schedules.
