"That camp changed how I felt about basketball and my future. It was the turning point in my life." That's how Michael Jordan summed up his experience at Five-Star Basketball, the premier hoops camp founded by Howard Garfinkel and Will Klein in 1966. In addition to Jordan, the alumni list is studded with stars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and coaches such as Chuck Daly. In total, more than 500 NBA players have come to Five-Star to refine their basketball talent.
Today, Five-Star continues its tradition of elite basketball training for future college and professional basketball players. Open to boys and girls aged 10?18, the camp's coaches teach young players the importance of possessing basketball fundamentals, being in shape, and having a strong head on their shoulders. Players have many opportunities to show off their skills, such as demonstrating a finely tuned crossover dribble during Five-Star's highly competitive pickup games or eating the most orange slices at lunchtime.

During the black belt success system, which is targeted specifically at kids, children learn the finer points of self-defense while getting in shape and exercising their natural desire to break things in half.

At True Health & Wellness, Doctor of Chiropractic Joe Labriola helps clients work toward weight-loss goals with Lipo-Light treatments. When used in conjunction with a nutrition plan and exercise, Lipo-Light can help rid the body of excess fat. Pads placed on the target area emit red light that can make fat cells release their contents, which are then escorted out of the body through natural metabolic processes. The 20-minute treatments work best over a four-week period, and results can be maintained with regular follow-up visits.
