Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Absolutely. People are beautiful by how they treat others. Not how they appear.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
We use cream (unless it is a hot-stone massage). This will not leave our customers feeling oily after a massage. They can go where ever they want after the appointment without having to stop at home first.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
I had a gentleman who had surgery years ago. He had feeling in his toes, but always had a tingling sensation in them. He said that since his massage, he no longer has that feeling.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our massages are a full hour on the table. We do not take away time for paperwork or the process of getting on/off the table.
During the summer, visitors to certain North Carolina parks might see a bunch of athletic Europeans urging kids through drills. They shouldn't worry?this isn't some covert invasion. It's just the Barcelona Soccer Camp. Organized by ISL Futbol and UE Cornella of Barcelona, and partnered with FC Barcelona and Blackburn Rovers FC, this four-day program serves the dual purpose of building kids' confidence and soccer skills and preparing them for potential recruitment; assistant coaches scout each camp to find the ideal candidates for training and eventual placement in professional football clubs around North America and Europe.
Even more importantly, though, the program is designed to help kids have fun. UEFA Pro?licensed Spanish coaches?holders of the highest soccer-coaching level in the world?join forces with NCAA coaches and players. With one coach for every 12 campers, the six-hour days are filled with lessons in soccer theory and dynamic, hands-on training. Programs follow elite Spanish training methodology and are broken up into skill-specific workshops on dribbling, controlling and passing, possession games, and perhaps most importantly, real scrimmages with a team.
Club Fitness’s 50,000-square-foot facility fills with the low rumble of more than 75 cardio machines and the clanging of tens of thousands of pounds of free weights and strength-training equipment from Hammer Strength and Life Fitness. Youngsters scamper through the KidZone or children's nursery while their parents pump iron or grab a spot in the cardio-cinema room, an area that allows people to work out while enjoying a movie in surround sound. The gym’s trainers lead one-on-one sessions as well as group fitness classes. The soft squeak of feet against floors drifts from yoga sessions, and popular Les Mills classes include BodyPump, which combines high-energy music and repetitive moves like somebody repeatedly pushing the wrong way on a dance-club door. The purr of blenders drifts from the smoothie bar, where patrons refuel and chat after workouts.
Before opening Carolina Karate & Fitness Center, Shihan White garnered a slew of achievements in martial arts. He became an inductee to the National Sport Karate Hall of Fame—an honor his son and co-instructor Matthew also obtained—earned a 7th degree black belt, and clinched a Doctorate in Martial Arts Philosophies and Martial Arts Sciences. Like his father, Matthew's martial arts accomplishments could fill a breakable board, including being ranked 5th in the world as a junior black belt. Shihan and Matthew bestow their wisdom on students during adult karate classes and self-defense courses. They also oversee weapons classes where students wield wooden swords, meld yoga and karate, and round out fitness programs with boot camp, body sculpting, and other classes.
The fish-fryers at Catfish Junction hope their rib-sticking southern fare takes you back to a simpler time, when the fish you ate was caught in the crick down the road and the okra wasn't genetically modified to wink at you. The menu bears out that goal. Old-fashioned starters such as fried dill pickles and spicy pimento cheese make way for the restaurant's specialty: fried catfish with coleslaw and a side such as sweet-potato fries or Cajun rice. Elsewhere on the menu, diners will find blue-crab claws, crayfish tails, and steaming bowls of jambalaya or shrimp and grits. A huge stable of po' boys, featuring catfish, shrimp, or chicken fingers nestled between bread, rounds out the experience.
