Like any bride-to-be, Melissa wanted her big day to stand out. Tired of the same old garter toss or all-orangutan wedding band, she hit on the idea of installing a photo booth into the proceedings, but the costs were prohibitive. That?s when she and her now-husband, Eddie, formed Just For You Photo Booths. Since then, the couple has dispatched the booths to weddings, parties of all stripes, and bar mitzvahs, where they capture memories in high resolution more effectively than swinging a butterfly net through a person?s brain. Patrons can choose color or black-and-white photos and customize photo strips with graphics or text. Once the revelry ends, the couple sets the pictures in scrapbooks, on CDs, or in magnetic frames.

In 2005, stress pushed Michelle McCormack to the brink of spiritual and physical collapse. Though her fast-paced finance job tested her limits, it had the happy consequence of awakening an interest in yoga, relaxation therapies, and holistic healing. Soon, she drew up a business plan and founded IHP Clinic Solution, a practice that serves the mind, body, and spirit of its patients. Today, at Aviva Health and Wellness Clinic, McCormack oversees the operations of wellness professionals who help patients become healthy inside and out.
Instead of just prescribing drugs or spoonfuls of sugar, Aviva's medical professionals thoroughly evaluate each patient. Then they recommend treatments that combine the best practices of conventional and alternative medicine. Medical services, including treatments for diabetes and heart disease, improve physical health, whereas spa and wellness services, such as acne treatments and body wraps, simultaneously improve looks and confidence. Treatments target a wide range of health- and beauty-related desires, helping patients lose weight, recover from illness, or reverse signs of aging.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they use a four-step Sylvan Insight process to design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. SylanSync technology complements in-person tutoring sessions, allowing kids to use iPads to further their learning. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Orlando Gateway Sport Pilot Aviation Center's Ramon Gil's first encountered the spectacle of aerial navigation at an early age, when his family lived near an airport. It was love at first sight. Since then, Ramon has become a flight director and works with student pilots. His partner, Roger Frechette, has logged more than 5,000 hours of flight time since he took to the skies back in the 1960s. Together they have gathered a team of experienced instructors to help spread their love of cloud wrangling and maintain a fleet of meticulously cared-for, FAA-approved aircrafts, including Cessnas and Tecnam Bravo. From their base at Kissimmee Gateway Airport, the pilots lead sport-pilot-training flights, and their crafts carry pairs of sightseers over the area's most beloved landmarks, such as Disney World and Old Town Orlando.
After spending nearly 15 years experimenting with fad diets and ineffective workouts, James and Stephanie Cuilty found a program to which they could commit. The nationally certified personal trainers now lead the 45-minute classes at Warrior Fit Club, encouraging guests of all ages and builds to conquer a diverse palette of exercises. Five days a week, they gather campers indoors for an ever-changing, customized medley of cardio, resistance, and abdominal-tightening maneuvers. They motivate groups with supportive mantras and dispense basic nutrition tips, such as “Don’t eat that Necronomicon,” to instill healthy habits for life.
