Certified personal trainer and global martial-arts competitor Zak Lee roundhouse kicks through the geographic barriers that separate him from his students. During his online courses, he pulls from 30 years of martial-arts and fitness experience—accrued at studios throughout the world—to transform newbies into kick-smart experts. The curriculum, provided through the National Council of Certified Personal Trainers, accredits and prepares users to teach kickboxing and martial arts, with a focus on leadership skills and technical proficiency. Lee’s sessions detail proper alignment for kicks and punches, discuss how to string the two together to build different combos, and outline the best maneuvers for punching a piano in half. Each class also includes guides on building drills, conditioning exercises, and sample workouts for equipment-based or equipment-free kickboxing.
Sears Carpet & Upholstery’s fully insured cleaners can tackle more than just carpet. They bring their quick, effective cleaning serums down on myriad home furnishings, from couches and tile to ducts and hardwood floors.

The company’s two-step cleaning process inundates furniture and carpet with a cleaning solution followed by a thorough scrubbing and a rinse with pH-balancing serum that eliminates leftover soap scum.

For 10 years, Shoreline Pest Control’s bug-squashing technicians have been bravely standing up to termites, spiders, and other types of vermin with a comprehensive five-step elimination process. Technicians start by inspecting suspected areas of infestation, removing the pests’ food source, and identifying points of entry such as cracks, crevices, and microscopic doggy doors. Then professional-grade pesticides are applied conservatively in doses designed to be as people and pet friendly as possible. A follow-up monitoring program sees the techs returning to ensure home conditions are kept as unwelcoming as possible for creepy-crawly squatters. In addition to keeping indoor and outdoor areas free of infestation, Shoreline manages its own team of carpenters that specializes in repairing wood damaged by termites and fungus.
