Click Portrait Studio's professional lens charmers preserve images of families, couples, pets, and graduates through artful in-studio or on-location photo sessions. In addition to capturing natural emotion, the studio hosts a graphic-design team capable of retouching images to remove blemishes, red eyes, and ugly sweaters woven from wombat fur before delivering prints on the same day as an in-studio shoot. This combination of expressive portraiture and lightning-fast turnaround has earned the studio the Rising Star Award in the 2011 Southern Indiana Business Awards.
Dr.'s Bob and Michael Dick unite in their fight against tooth decay, leading a team of dental experts that caters to cusped and incisor alike with routine and cosmetic dentistry. The savings plan grants choppers a full year of dental protection, providing precious gumstones with security similar to bicycles locked inside Swiss banks. At the first appointment, the dentist better acquaints himself with the client’s teeth through a comprehensive exam, snapping digital x-ray images, deploying Velscope oral-cancer detection, checking bite alignment, and thoroughly cleaning gums and mouth bones. A take-home whitening kit brightens smiles safely and conveniently without the use of extracts drawn from blazingly white colonial wigs. With the savings plan, Groupon holders also receive a bouquet of discounts on future general and cosmetic dental services.
According to Bob and Shari Smith, founders of Ideal Weight, losing weight is about taking ownership of your health. They believe that obesity is largely a self-imposed affliction that can be confronted and conquered through daily nutritional choices.
Prior to shepherding clients through the weight-loss process, the company's consultants educate clients on various topics: hydration, sleep, packaged and comfort foods, metabolic syndrome, macronutrition, and cravings, among others. With this knowledge established, they equip clients with guidelines for weight loss, emphasizing a low-sugar diet with high-value proteins. From there, they touch base on a weekly or daily basis, according to each client's needs.
Although the program emphasizes weight loss, it also secures a few ancillary benefits. An uptick in water intake improves skin health, an increase in protein helps to build muscle, and a better understanding of nutrition labels makes it easier to distinguish which side of the cereal box is a word search.
For many, maintaining a healthy fitness regimen is an off-putting chore on par with cleaning the garage or assembling that backyard roller coaster for the kids. The folks behind Snap Fitness, who now boast locations all over the world, are of the opinion that this doesn't have to be the case. They believe 24-hour access to premium cardio and strength-training equipment, innovative easyFIT monitors to track personal progress, and perpetual guidance from certified professionals can help transform physical fitness into an accessible activity that yields measurable and tangible results. In addition to providing online workout rubrics and meal plans, they work to keep sweat glands up and running by offering work out rewards programs, making regular check-in calls, and measuring bodies—sans padded muscle suits—every 30 days.
