Getting in shape after giving birth can be difficult; taking care of the baby takes a lot of time and leaves bodies weary and sapped of energy. Stroller Strides understands these common struggles and has designed exercise regimens with new mothers in mind. All you need to get started is you, your baby or someone else's baby, and a stroller. Classes, which are taught by specially trained instructors, take place outdoors most of the year and consist of a warm-up, a buggy-bandying power walk, and interval stations where participants do a variety of body-toning exercises. Musically enhanced indoor classes are also available if you'd rather spare your body and baby from winter's clammy clutches. Instructors provide everyone with any additional equipment and, in the event of a fussy-baby episode, will show you exercises you can do with your baby.
Lee Rose’s love of photography dates back to his youth, but he took a detour through corporate America as a senior executive before committing himself to a photography career. Now, having traded in suits for jeans, Lee works with his partner Cindy Penn to capture life’s moments of beauty with his camera. Skilled at composing and capturing unique shots, Lee snaps portraits and immortalizes important moments such as weddings, graduations, or the first time you saw a double-decker bus. He also captures smoldering glances with boudoir photo shoots, which are customized to match the model’s personality and comfort level.
The creative director of Flying Colors Apparel couldn't have known that taking a pair of scissors to an oversized basketball jersey would lead him to rub elbows with celebrities while promoting his apparel at the Sundance Film Festival. But that's exactly what happened. According to a 2010 article on Thrillist.com, the idea for Flying Colors' business began when the designer "cut up a Heat jersey, patched elements of it onto a polo shirt, and was bombarded by fans who wanted one." Growing tired of the same-old, ill-fitting sports attire, and was seeking something more original and stylish, the designer decided to fuse his eye for fashion with his zealous team spirit, and Flying Colors a division of Global Fashion Works, LLC was created.
Flying Colors Apparel creations—which were featured in a shopping blog on NBC 6 in 2010—include a signature "fade out" fashion tee and a "collar scholar" polo, whose collar conceals phrases such as "Terrapins," or "GO NAVY". In addition to Canes-themed threads, the company has expanded to include officially licensed collegiate apparel for more than 50 schools such as Virginia Tech, Florida State, the University of Florida, and Baylor.
