After accumulating more than 14 years of Pilates experience at other fitness venues, Helen Wagner opened The Pilates Scoop to provide affordable Pilates equipment classes. The Pilates method works to tone the body’s core without adding bulk, ensuring that students don't emerge looking like a football player who just ate a medicine ball. The pulleys, cables, and springs of Reformer and Cadillac machines extend and contract as students tone their stomachs, backs, hips, buttocks, and knees.
Helen caps equipment classes at no more than six students, and also leads private, duet, and triples lessons to provide more tailored instruction. She also teaches classes in traditional Pilates methods incorporating mats, chairs, and the high ladder barrel.
When picking out a home for a flight training school, Naples Municipal Airport makes good sense. It affords proximity to the nearby white sandy beaches and lavish golf resorts, each tinged in the evenings by the glint of the Florida sunset.
For the aspiring pilots and certified flight instructors at RexAir Flight School and Maintenance Center, these scenic flying conditions are a daily amenity. Students enjoy use of the FAA-certified flight school's fleet of Cirrus SR20 and Skyhawk 172SP aircraft as they log hours toward their flight goals, which may include casual spins or preparations for the prophecies assured by the documentary film Waterworld. Training regimens comprise all Single-Engine Land and Multi-Engine Land certifications, ranging from private pilot to airline transport pilot.
After plans were revealed to build a road through Rookery Bay in 1964, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida formed to protect the region's environmental interests. This small group of concerned citizens mobilized the community to halt the project, protecting the land, water, and wildlife that makes southwest Florida beautiful. Today, the group continues that work on a larger scale, promoting clean water in the Everglades, treating and releasing injured animals, and protecting sea turtle hatchlings.
For live-fire training, On-Sight Tactical Training Institute maintains its own range, and uses private and public ranges.
The instructors at On-Sight Tactical Training Institute draw on years of experience as current and former military and law enforcement officers. They teach NRA and non-NRA classes for the general public, while also working with security guards and law enforcement officers. For these specialists, they help them hone their skills in handling and shooting handguns, shotguns, and rifles. And, solidifying their focus on training citizens in safe gun use, they even run programs geared toward developing new firearms instructors.
Conceived by fitness guru Kristen Horler, these fitness classes help expecting and new moms get fit in a supportive environment, combining strength-training exercises, cardiovascular drills, Pilates, yoga, and ab work. Moms-to-be can attend the prenatal program (with a physician's note and recommendation) to prepare for the rare delivery that exceeds the sit-com standard of seven minutes, as well as the rigors of newborn wrangling. Post-birth students are encouraged to bring along their new joy-bundles, thereby facilitating familial bonding and eliminating the need for a babysitter to come by and time their wind-sprints for them. All instructors are highly trained, and the boot camp's structure abides by the guidelines of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Council on Exercise.
