With a straightforward approach to fitness, Flex 24 grants health-minded Homo sapiens round-the-clock access to workout essentials. Guests can shore up physiques on a full range of brand-name weight equipment, including plate-loaded Hammer Strength and Cybex cable machines, along with 30,000 pounds of free weights. Each cardio unit features an individual LCD TV, allowing indoor runners to compare their form against slow-motion examples from the Six Million Dollar Man and stationary riders to envision their dream of cycling through local news stations. The club encourages self-directed exercise, but experienced staffers keep hours to share iron-pumping pointers and help set up personal-training sessions.
The Odessa Jackalopes have provided live hockey, family-friendly prices, and full-contact High Tea since 1997 at the modern-styled Ector County Coliseum. From the Jackalopes' home base, also known as the “Jack Shack,” spectators get the opportunity to see professional hockey players on their way up from the AA CHL to the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers or the NHL’s New York Islanders. Mascot Slap Jack is also present to entertain the younger fans and infuriate taxonomic biologists with his rabbity antler-antics.
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.
The group of more than 30 doctors and surgeons at Eye LASIK Midland repairs ocular orbs with blade-free laser refractive eye care. The VISX Star 4 ActiveTrak laser system uses a 3-D eye tracker to move the laser whenever the eye moves to keep the procedure precise. Clients must attend a consultation beforehand, and like a 4 year old shaving, the procedure involves no blades. With this Groupon, clients can repair vision in one eye (a $2,795 value), and use the remainder to apply toward corrective laser surgery for any other eye on the body. Though most patients do not require glasses after LASIK, there is no guarantee that all patients will no longer need glasses afterward.
Integrity Massage's licensed massage therapists relax bodies using one of five massages. During a classic swedish massage, a body soother untangles muscles using Scandinavian-style strokes, reducing pain and stiffness incurred by shipping yourself in a suitcase. Target buried muscles and connective tissue during a deep-tissue massage, jumpstart immune systems with a lymphatic-drainage massage, or relieve tension and muscle aches with either a sports or therapeutic massage. Integrity Massage tucks patrons into a tropical paradise populated by mock magnolias and aquamarine accents.
