Kimberly Garsed founded Urban Dog Playcare to provide dog owners with a place to put their pets when they were otherwise engaged with work or play, thus making it possible for more people to welcome dogs into their families. Kimberly has more than 20 years of experience training dogs, and her core staff draws on more than 10 years of experience when attending to the health and happiness of their clients? canines. During playcare, four-legged friends roam around a 5,000-square-foot facility with five distinct play areas, two of which have a rubber surface to cushion dogs? feet and better facilitate their self-directed gymnastics competitions. Owners can keep tabs on their pooches through the facility's webcam, unless the staff and their charges have embarked on one of the frequent custom field trips to exotic, pet-friendly locales such as the Santa Monica Mountains.
Boarders visiting the hospitable facility eat nutritious meals and tire themselves out during vigorous walks before being escorted to slumberland by a skilled dog wrangler who continues to watch pets into the wee hours. Dogs sleep atop beds or blankets in kennel runs or crates with housemates. Because the dog wrangler stays with the doggies all night, the animals are never alone.
Though the term “boot camp” may conjure images of aggressive drill sergeants barking orders as their recruits struggle through grueling tasks, Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp sessions are much the opposite. Their enthusiastic trainers motivate patrons in outdoor boot-camp classes, issuing positive reinforcement as they work together to burn calories and excess fat through challenging, but not defeating, exercises. Each one-hour session is designed to promote fat loss with a varied routine of interval training that my involve weightlifting, push-ups, sit-ups, and plyometrics. Many activities require participants to band together to tackle obstacles, bolstering a sense of support and camaraderie. Instructors then lead exercisers in a cool down with yoga and stretching, leaving them more limber than a linguini noodle basking in a jacuzzi.
In addition to the calorie-blasting boot camps, Body Proud Fitness Boot Camp’s weight-loss specialties include one-on-one personal training and nutritional counseling. Clients gain access to the Truestar at-home training and nutrition programs, which lead them toward overall wellness with custom meal plans and supplements paired with tailored fitness routines.
At Pittsburgh Alternative Health, friendly staffers join Doctor of Naturopathy Darrell Misak and needle-free acupressure specialist, Dr. Wan Huang to restore and maximize bodily health and mental well-being with holistic treatments. Toxins are expelled during sauna sessions, where infrared light saps contaminants from muscles, and relaxing ionic footbaths, which kiss the feet with gentle electrical charges. Relaxed patrons can glide into a private mental-rest room, where a programmed audio-visual show lures minds into a state of alert relaxation with music, lights, and footage of baby pandas learning to cartwheel. The health center can also aid patients on the road to health with analytic testing. During an EAV test, technicians use a fusion of mechanical methods and ancient acupuncture pressure points to study the body’s energy. The results can pinpoint sensitivities to foods, chemicals, or existentialist poems that may be decreasing energy or causing other health problems.
White delivery vans scrawled with purple and teal lettering roll into driveways twice a week, hauling dirty clothes away and returning them clean and fresh. The magic happens at Four Seasons's Squirrel Hill headquarters, where a second-generation owner helms an array of dry and water-based cleaning services. He and his cleaning team inspect each piece to single out stains before subjecting them to a dry-cleaning machine with organic-based fluid and other eco-friendly techniques. During their specialty Execu-Shirt regimen, techs hand-scrub collars and cuffs, replace missing buttons, and quiz them on Fortune 500 companies before ironing and folding or hanging them. They also tailor ripped seams and sagging hemlines, store furs in a temperature-controlled vault, and preserve wedding gowns with a museum-style, acid-free protection process.
In the late 1970s, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's particular set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
