Whether working with beginning golfers or birdie collectors, Mark Spinelli draws upon decades of experience to help players improve their skills and mechanics. A self-described historian of the game of golf (and its iconic swings), Mark gleans inspiration from the greats—Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus—to perfect his own technique, which he uses to regularly compete in long-drive championships. He starts novices out with skill-appropriate drills, such as the fundamentals of a sound swing and the short game, and helps advanced golfers improve their accuracy so they can land balls on their boss's car more frequently. He shows players how to respond to course variables such as wind, lie, rough, and green speed, particularly through on-the-go adjustments to factors such as grip, putting stroke, and erratic ball patterns.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning?s numerous centers design personalized programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Fit From The Ground Up’s stripped-down approach to fitness is best exemplified by its boot-camp classes, which rely on body-weight exercises, sprinting, and basic tools such as pull-up bars, heavy ropes, and oversize tires. The theme carries over to other classes as well, whether muay thai, kickboxing, yoga, or Zumba. To keep things engaging, the staff regularly adds classes based on exercisers’ wants.
The Spa at Commerce Casino ensorcells forms with treatments that sap away stress and improve introductory aesthetics. Revivify tired mugs with the 30-minute Fast Signature Facial, which begins with an in-depth skin analysis that identifies epidermal problems, including dryness, excessive oil, and difficult-to-detect camouflage pigmentation. Pore cleaning unclogs acne-prone skin, followed by a choice of a hydrating or deep-cleansing mask that lets face-bearers customize their rejuvenating treatments. In the therapeutic Swedish massage, skillful digits ease kinked-up bone movers, leaching out achiness and leaving muscles relaxed enough to avenge crushing Twister defeats from arrogant Gumbys. An ionic foot bath finishes off spa sessions, gently coaxing toxins out through feet with the allure of a warm bath.
Fred Astaire's highly experienced instructors instill clients with the subtle elegance of waltzes, fox trots, and tangos. Private introductory lessons teach a choice of over 20 styles during 40-minute sessions, as individuals or couples dance over the basics of ballroom dance, dance-floor etiquette. Group classes encourage amateur dancers to test out their skills with fellow frolickers during 40 minutes of sashaying and socializing. By the end of their introductory education, students whirl and waltz through the studio's spacious dancing environment with more confidence than the Lord of the Dance at an Irish nightclub.
