Dr. Nicki Hill enjoys sharing her optometric skills with those in need, whether that entails working with patients at U.S. Veterans Affairs Hospitals or performing free eye exams for tornado victims in Tuscaloosa and Pratt City. Shoppers can find the same level of care inside Bell Road Eyewear's airy emporium. There, staff members guide visitors through a large inventory of designer eyewear and illuminate the distinctions between single-vision plastic and polycarbonate lenses. Frames by Danish brand ProDesign and chic styles from Vogue, DKNY, and Jai Kudo rest atop antique-style wood tables. Shoppers can also peruse selections of children's glasses, sunglasses, and monocles fitted with stained glass. Although Dr. Hill can diagnose visual capabilities in-house, Bell Road Eyewear will also fill lens prescriptions from outside optometrists.

Q&A with Marjorie Jean Anderson, Principle Instructor And Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Regular practice with hands on adjustments will help give you the tools to combat your daily stresses. And just like life, the practice can be difficult some days and easier on other days. The practice helps get you through hard times in your personal-, business-, and family-life. So, it's not just a exercise it's a form of movement therapy.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

Tapas is a word used in yoga which means to burn. We must burn old latent impressions, and in order to heal we have to feel. We as people tend to avoid the things that are difficult in our lives just like certain yoga postures, but the practice at a shala (yoga home) gives you support.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

A cardio workout, a restorative release, or both at the same time. It's a grounding, growing experiences.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

MJ yoga gives you the ability to feel like a kid again, while finding alignment with a exercise you can do your whole life.

Most gym’s membership fees resemble a club’s cover charge; they get a person in the door but don’t come with any special attention. BodyTrac Health & Fitness’s trainers alter that traditional structure, providing three small, group personal-training sessions a week for every member. They take on one to four students at a time, focusing on the five areas of fitness as outlined by the College of Sports Medicine: body composition, cardiorespiratory fitness, flexibility, muscular strength, and muscular endurance. They fuse together the quintet of exercise areas in one-hour appointments, spending the first 30 minutes on cardio heart-rate training. Their efforts to elevate your pulse encourage muscles to burn extra calories as trainers move you on to 30 minutes of strength training. In this second portion, they use equipment from all over the gym, including TRX suspension harnesses, kettlebells, and medicine balls, which must be swallowed with a silo-sized glass of water.
