Toes wiggle cheerily against the squishy polyurethane soles of Dansko footwear, which fills the shelves of Clogkingdom.com with comfortable Danish ingenuity. Inside the site’s brick-and-mortar storefront, The Clog Shop in Oceanside, New York, founder Jeffrey Levine leads patrons to fresh styles of the no-nonsense footwear he originally supplied to doctors and nurses in New York City hospitals. In-store and online, miniature feet march along in pairs of Dankso kids' clogs in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials, and pairs of Birkenstock sandals which showcase feet proudly in thong, clog, and Arizona-style straps. Alongside kicks from other designers such as Ecco, Earth, and Minnetonka, hiking shoes from Keen beg patrons to scale challenging mountain ranges and daunting out-of-order escalators with sturdy strips of leather and patches of mesh for ventilation.
The Oceanside Wellness Center contours away inches and tightens skin during quick, noninvasive Lipo-Light sessions. During the 30-minute treatments, lasers slip past skin's outer defenses, targeting the adipose tissue that lurks just beneath. Stimulated by the light energy, these cells give up their fatty contents, which then vacate the body during normal lymphatic cycles. The treatments also strengthen the target area's collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in a tighter, more toned surface. The center also offers additional therapeutic services.

The beauty experts also enhance winks and coded eye flutters with lash extensions that last up to 22 days.

World-renowned fighter Tiger Schulmann and his staff of certified instructors motivate jabs from knees, legs, and feet during calorie-blasting kickboxing classes. Schulmann crafted his style with techniques from mixed martial arts and street self-defense, concocting each kick to improve students' strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and the ability to fight back against vigilante soccer teams. The studio's martial-arts mavens also help novice kickers craft a customized diet plan during a nutrition consultation, and more modestly clothe naked fists in a pair of complimentary training gloves. Once students master beginning moves, they can advance to other martial-arts challenges, such as high-kicking their way out of a room made of Jello.
