A star offensive lineman for Stanford University, 315-pound Brian Cassidy—his team up by five touchdowns against Washington State—set up for a routine extra point. Suddenly, a player leaped across the line of scrimmage and landed on Brian’s knee, tearing both his ACL and MCL in one life-changing second. His hopes for an NFL career nearly dashed, Brian moved on to his rehabilitation, but instead he suffered one more debilitation: a herniated disc. Nearly paralyzed, Brian had a breakthrough: as a muscular-training specialist pointed out, his body wasn’t aligned properly, making his recovery nearly impossible. Brian started training with a new focus, emerging months later faster and stronger than ever before—and dedicated to a new multilevel training philosophy that he continues to develop at ADAPT Training.
There, trainers help clients recover from their injuries or simply enhance their personal fitness level by ensuring that four key structural joints—the shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles—work in balance with one another and maintain their proper alignment, thereby strengthening the durability and gas mileage of the entire body. Clients participate in everything from classes focused on physical therapy to strength-training regimens to boot camps, all personalized to meet the individual needs of each student.
The Sight Shops operated by the Oregon Eye Specialists allow clear-sight seekers to browse a vast selection of designer frames such as Coach ($199+), Elle ($159+), and Armani ($259+), as well as a wide array of sunglasses by Oakley and Maui Jim.

To accompany their stylish frames, each Sight Shop exhibits high-quality progressive lenses in a variety of designs including single-lens, bi-focal, and tri-telescope helmet. The opticians at Oregon Eye Specialists—who are certified by the American Board of Opticianry—can help customers secure specific ocular solutions when assisted by a prescription from any physician. All frames and lenses carry a minimum one-year warranty.

Currently, Thrive Aesthetic boasts the skin-smoothing power of two laser systems, Coolglide Excel and Lumenis HS Duet. Both are extremely effective at removing fur coats, with a few variants on how they approach particular follicular canvases. Coolglide Excel uses a long-pulsed laser with a chilling tip, suitable for more sensitive skin types or areas, such as the chest, nipples, and bikini line. Lumenis HS Duet uses vacuum-assist technology to treat areas in a quick, comfortable manner. Though all skin types and hair attitudes vary, six laser hair-removal sessions from either system typically provide long-lasting results, unlike traditional methods that rely upon duct tape, open flames, and multiple Ouija boards.
