With one foot planted in traditional martial-arts pedagogy and the other roundhouse-kicking modern sports science, Tiger Rock Academy schools limbs with fast-paced, total-body fitness classes. The health-and-fitness program consists of Kisado kickboxing, which blends martial arts and nutritional counseling to build up the whole body and tone each strand of hair on the head. Martial arts classes for adults and kids cover counter aggressive forms such as taekwondo and hanmudo, a style based on grappling and takedowns.
In pools heated to a comfortable 90 degrees, Aqua-Tots' experienced instructors pass their aquatic knowledge on to younger generations. Before taking to the water, the team sorts prospective swimmers between the ages of 6 months and 12 years into one of eight swim levels along with similarly skilled and aged peers. Instructors work alongside the parents of infants and toddlers to practice water-safety skills and other swimming fundamentals such as blowing bubbles and singing whale songs. More advanced swimmers, meanwhile, master different strokes and techniques, and instructors incorporate more advanced concepts as their students progress through the levels. Parents can rest assured that their children are in good hands—each Aqua-Tots instructor has completed 32 hours in the company's Lessons for Life training program and a rigorous water-safety instructor exam.
In addition to swimming lessons, Aqua-Tots offers a number of other programs, including an Adaptive Aquatics program that features water-therapy sessions designed for children with special needs. It also donates a portion of its proceeds to World Vision, a nonprofit organization that helps children and families worldwide gain access to such necessities as clean water, food, medical supplies, and education.
At the Cox Classic, world-renowned club swingers battle for PGA Tour positioning on 200 acres of well-maintained fairways designed by golf course architect Jeffrey Brauer. Onlookers enjoy a panoramic view of players navigating through an 18-hole course featuring impeccable maintained greens and molds for creating sand trap castles. A one-day clubhouse ticket grants fans admission to the Champions Run clubhouse, access to the Champions Run golf shop, and an opportunity to witness skillfully executed golf cart wheelies.
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.

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
We have bright, cool colors that help the client feel calm, relaxed, and refreshed. We have a comfy white sofa in our reception area, along with privacy screens on the windows. Our center is very modern with a very clean feeling. Music is available in all rooms to help client feel more relaxed.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
We have registered nurses, a physician assistant, and an aesthetician on staff.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We love all of our clients, but we really love it when they bring in their pets. All dogs and cats are more than welcome to come in while a client is being treated. We'll even "babysit" your dog or cat for you while you are in the back receiving a treatment. Everyone loves our fun and laid-back atmosphere. We truly love meeting new clients and really getting to know our clients personally. We pride ourselves on being professional, but fun and casual.
You won't find any hardcore sales people here, either. Our staff claims that they are not sales people, but they clearly love what they do and believe in the treatments, as they naturally are able to "sell" to everyone who walks through the door, except for the dogs and cats, who I believe would prefer to keep their hair.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our pricing is amazing. Many people are shocked when they learn about our prices in comparison to other places in town. We also treat each person individually. They're just not another body zone that comes through the door. We recently added professional teeth-whitening services, which has everyone smiling brite as they leave!

They welcome participants of every age and build to their many Kosama locations.
