Once the site of the PGA Tour's Miami Open, the Miami Springs Golf course spans 6,785 yards of well-groomed, challenging terrain, playing to a par 71 from its blue and white tees and par 72 from its ladies' red tees. After dismounting from their mechanical steeds, club-wielding competitors battle cunning landscaping to prevent the covetous branches of mature trees that hug fairways' edges from seizing dimpled orbs, or sinking into the canal, which conspires to swallow plaid-covered ankles on sections of the back nine. Straighten out your swing before a round with a bucket of 70 range balls, included in today's deal, to use at the course's grass-tee driving range, or get in some moonlit swings to prepare for high-stakes blindfolded golf tournaments.
Executive Links’ golfing reps play along with golfers in order to help them to perfect their game in real time. Under instructors' tutelage, golfletes will shear strokes from their averages on their choice of local course, as opposed to a driving range. Pros go beyond just perfecting swings and focus on the mental aspects of golfing, proffering advice on course-management tips, such as when to go for the green, when to lay up, and how to motivate lackadaisical ball washers. They mold lessons around pupils' styles and goals, ensuring athletes master new techniques without completely altering their personal styles. The teachers often give corporations a leg up on competitors by escorting prospective clients around the links and doling out instruction, employing the same degree of courtesy as Romeo would have required to meet Juliet’s parents.
Philip J. Argianas's office is the golf course. The PGA of America pro instructor coaches players of all ages and skill levels with programs and lessons that are designed to yield individualized tips for improvement. Adult golf clinics are also available for short, focused study, breaking down fundamentals, short-game techniques, and swing mechanics for small groups over the course of one to three sessions.
The facilities at Bonaventure Golf Learning Center feature spacious grass areas for training exercises, which students can opt to have a video analysis to help them tweak body movements or modify the angle at which the clubface meets the ball. Philip boosts each of his prescriptions with motivation to encourage players to practice and ultimately ingrain these positive techniques into their games without having to devise a pneumonic device for "stop hopping on one foot and whistling while you swing."
The NRA-licensed instructors at Blackwater Agency train both civilians and security officers in armed and unarmed self-defense. Their class catalogue breaks down into an array of courses, covering topics such as concealed-weapon training, pressure-point control, and women's defense. They also dedicate time to teaching proper medical response, such as how to give CPR.
Blackwater Agency is a fully licensed and insured private-security firm serving Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Monroe counties.
Through a combination of lecture-based sessions and overseen practice time at their indoor shooting range, Allstate Training Academy guides civilians, law-enforcement officers, and military members in the responsible use of firearms. The faculty includes experts such as Albert Confident, a state of Florida firearm instructor and NRA handgun and shotgun instructor, who covers the fundamentals of marksmanship, firearm maintenance, and knitting holsters. During other courses, the instructors teach students to defend themselves with retractable batons in obtaining the necessary skills to become a professional security guard.
My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 30 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level—starting as young as 6 months—and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6 to 9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity, and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
