With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Led by Columbia-educated surgeon Dr. Susan Lovelle, the friendly staff of follicle exterminators at Axtell Plastic Surgery eradicates unwanted fuzzy regions with a relatively pain-free non-surgical treatment, which uses light energy to target pigment inside the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. Take care of unwelcome face-fur with upper lip ($155), chin ($200), or neck ($200) treatments, or stun a would-be purse-snatcher with your newly non-hirsute under-arm ($400), bikini line ($450), lower back ($455), or lower leg ($455). Body bristle must be targeted during its re-growth phases for long-lasting no-hair-ness; Axtell normally recommends as many as six treatments on a given area. Fortunately, customers can double their derma de-furment by snagging two Groupons, ensuring their chosen body part will be rendered as sensuously slick as any well-margarined waterslide.
When it was conceived in 1975, Hesston Golf Course was designed as a public course that any and every skill level could play. The layout of the course certainly mimics that original concept, with five sets of tees at each hole and wide, lush fairways that spill over into fast-moving greens. The 5th and 18th holes may count as signature stops along the course, Hesston considers its group of par-three holes its true calling card—in fact, the course features more than 900 yards in par threes alone. In addition to its welcoming design, Hesston also features a state-of-the-art irrigation system, ensuring playing conditions remain pristine and bottles of water don’t get snatched out of carts by thirsty trees.
