Maine Optometry’s skilled optometrists determine prescriptions for contacts, such as Acuvue Oasys, and glasses, such as the eye boutique's more than 750 frames including brands such as Oakley, Kate Spade, and Banana Republic. These frames encircle everything from simple single-vision lenses to specialty lenses that cater to athletes or clients who stare at a computer monitor all day waiting for it to blink. Clients interested in throwing off the yoke of eyewear entirely can discuss refractive surgery with the doctors.

Maine Optometry also outfits clients in designer sunglasses and concerns itself with the environment, working with an e-prescribing system that eliminates paperwork, which trees hate to fill out.

Q&A with Ben and Tommy, Trainers

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Short and long term goal setting, modifications for any age or fitness level, regular evaluations and progress assessments, a lot of fun, and creative and challenging training that will never be repetitive.

What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?

No motivation, incorrect form, no accountability, too much routine, lack of variety in training, unrealistic goal-setting, not fun or interesting, no spotter, ignorance, or no outside encourage and/or coaching.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Fun, challenging, full-body training relevant to their specific goals. It is not unlike being hit by a mac truck.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Bring a barf bag and come hydrated.

Out in the park, its not uncommon to see dozens of people swinging their hips, hooping and laughing. They're not going for a Guinness Book record or even competing: they're burning calories in a fun way. It's what Hardcore Hooping is all about—getting people together for energetic, healthy activities that shed pounds. The hooping experts design their multi-colored hoops specifically for the task, weighting them perfectly with water. That water swooshes around while hooping, creating a rhythmic sound that fosters a trance-like focus. Besides burning calories, hoop exercises build core strength and improve balance and flexibility. Hardcore Hooping also offers rental packages for events and leads high-energy fitness classes.
