Like a beacon of fitness, Envision Memphis sits atop the historic Cadre Building in downtown Memphis. There, personal trainers await to whip clients into shape with boot camps, yoga classes, and one-on-one sessions. Visitors working out alone keep equally busy. Cardio and weight machines tone muscle alongside body balls, and ample floor space allows for plentiful pushups or spontaneous break dancing. In addition, a full-size boxing ring with padded safety equipment hosts full-contact kickboxing practice.
There are no roads in the sky—just clouds and the floating mansions of America's billionaires. Similarly, Downtown Aviation's flying lessons don't follow one set pathway to pilot certification. Using FAA-approved materials, the school's certified flight instructors can teach a fast-paced course or follow a more casual lesson plan. But the endpoint remains the same: a student, private, or sport certificate.
One of the most exciting moments during training occurs approximately 20–25 hours into instruction, when students take the controls for their first solo flight. As they soar over Memphis or Olive Branch, taking in bird's eye views through the cockpit windshield, some may feel inspired to pursue flying as a career. Luckily, they won't have to look for a new school. Downtown Aviation's faculty trains pilots for their commercial certificates and airline transport pilot licenses. The staff can also maintain pilots' aircrafts at their Cessna-certified service center.
Aboard a food truck, Crumpy's On Wheels prepares flavorful chicken wings tossed with such add-ons as lemon pepper, fiery Suicide sauce, and seasonings. Wings aren't their only specialty, though; the food truck's cooks also grill juicy hamburgers, fry fish fillets, and sizzle sausages. Sides such as fried green tomatoes and onion rings round out meals.
Capturing memories of people and places around the Mid-South area. I prefer natural lighting and outdoor settings...usually off the beaten path. I love for my clients and myself to just have fun with the experience, and in the meantime create edgy and non-traditional types of shots.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
