• For $69, you get a teeth cleaning, examination with x-rays, and smile consultation (a $320 value). • For $179, you get an in-office Zoom! teeth whitening (a $500 value). The on-site orthodontic specialists and other dental dynamos at Sasan Ahmadiyar, DDS & Associates champion sparkling teeth with advanced preventative and cosmetic oral care. During the examination, a technician appraises mouth stones by highlighting cavities and other fixable flaws, using x-rays to reveal concealed damage. Then, a thorough cleaning decimates plaque and clingy spinach, untarnishing grills for a smile brighter than a light bulb solving a Rubik's cube in 12 seconds. As they admire their work, dental professions will also provide customers with a smile consultation to discuss cosmetic options for improving grins and increasing the chances of being stunt doubles during action-packed toothbrush commercials.
Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with gym workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts lathered in a fresh coat of peanut butter every morning. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
Fairway virtuosos can putt around in a rental cart for three rounds of golf on three of Prince William County's maintained golf gardens. Forest Greens Golf Club fills its ranks with an 18-hole, 72 par course marked by lush greenery, alleys of pine trees, and fewer blind spots than a Sherman tank missing its side mirrors. Built more than 50 years ago by a cadre of farmers, Prince William Golf Course greets sultans of the swing with 6,367 yards of pastoral playgrounds, boasting a traditional course amongst a countrified bucolic setting. Meanwhile, the General's Ridge Golf Course enfolds golfers in a warm oak-forest embrace and 6,651 yards of championship layout, as well as softly undulating hills patrolled by deer, fox, and confused hawks hatching nest-fulls of Titleists.
The recent resurgence of the workout video stems from popular titles such as P90X and Insanity, both of which promise a transformed body in exchange for sweat and hard work. Although few question the videos' ability to create results—they often do when performed regularly—it can be difficult to stay motivated when you're exercising alone in front of the TV.
ACE-certified group fitness instructor Nikki Reed, who is certified to teach P90X and Insanity, decided to do something about that dilemma. As a military spouse, she understands the importance of the fitness among the military community which is why she founded Fit Military Wife LLC, which offers 30-minute Insanity classes for all fitness levels. With her upbeat and welcoming personality, she motivates students through these high-energy Insanity workouts.
