Jeremy D. Jackson holds three distinct certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, from personal trainer to corrective exercise specialist. He understands not only how to build muscle and burn fat, but how the musculature and skeleton should work in concert to keep the body healthy. He puts this knowledge—honed over eight years in the fitness industry—to work in The GetFit Nation's outdoor boot camps held at locations all across Dallas.
Jeremy and his trainers alter their prescribed regimen daily, increasing the rate of calorie consumption and muscle growth by refusing to let their clients' bodies adapt to repetitive motions. Though comprised of an every-changing array of exercises, each complete regimen builds the body's abilities for functional movement, strength, and power.
Celebrity Spa & Laser Center?s staff specializes in body contouring, body wraps, facials, airbrush tanning, eyelash extensions, and lash and brow tinting. They also use advanced devices such as the Candela GentleYag laser to remove signs of unwanted hair. The Candela laser is safe for all skin types, and its beams are also used to zap unwanted hair and remove unsightly spider veins. Licensed aestheticians refresh skin with facials and vibradermabrasion, which uses vibrating paddles lined with abrasive particles to effectively exfoliate and renew skin. To assist in the erasure of wrinkles, they inject Botox and Juv?derm fillers.
Weight problems are often influenced by genetics; in fact, researchers have found 250 or so genes linked with obesity. SlimGenetic has helped countless people find out the link between their weight and their genetics, using a swab of one’s cheek as a DNA sample. After DNA testing, the team can determine crucial proponents toward weight loss efforts, such as how an individual absorbs and metabolizes fat versus carbohydrates, as well as any piñatas that have been mistaken to be sources of protein. Once the test results are in, the clinic’s staff will customize a plan of attack for each individual, whether they wish to lose weight or simply fine-tune their athletic performance.
Bricks 4 Kidz instructors believe that play is one of the building blocks of a child's education and that children who engage in hands-on activities are more likely to retain what they've studied and more willing to continue learning. To this end, they lead fun but educational classes with activities that involve literal building blocks—Legos, to be precise. Classes focus on a variety of topics ranging from animal biology to robotics and filmmaking, incorporating themed Lego kits that help children understand new concepts. In Remote Control classes, students learn what wireless signals are, and create remote-controlled vehicles to see them in action. Space Adventures sessions give kids a firsthand look at the machines and tests astronauts use before, during, and after space missions, which could inspire them to pursue a career in science or purchase retail space on Mars.
