Standing atop a board, a paddler rhythmically dips an oar into Old Tampa Bay's sparkling waters, smoothly skimming the surface while soaking in views of the sun sinking beyond the horizon. Tampa Bay SUP's team welcomes the uninitiated and veterans alike to experience this for themselves via paddleboard lessons and rentals. Their lessons last 20 minutes before students are free to enjoy leisurely paddling, which affords lofty vantage points from which to gaze upon marine wildlife and boosts core strength so that students may wrestle the animals into submission. Once they are ready to go out on their own, paddlers can request that staffers bring boards to various launch sites around the Tampa/Clearwater region, or pick them up at Tampa Bay SUP's beachside shops. Tampa Bay SUP also rents kayaks with all the necessary equipment included, sells paddleboards, and gives tours.

They offer group classes, as well as private lessons, and hold open dance socials where everyone can strut their stuff.
A woman enters a chiropractic clinic, but she's not there to talk about a stiff back, a knot in her neck, or even sinus pressure. Just a short time before, the woman underwent a surgery that resulted in a clipped nerve, adversely affecting both her uterus and bladder. Recognizing that an adjustment would offer little relief, Dr. William Buhrman Jr. instead applies Avicenna laser therapy to encourage tissue regeneration. He soon receives a call from his patient, during which the woman tells him she's regained use of her bladder.
A second-generation chiropractor, Dr. Buhrman takes an integrative approach to structural care and rehabilitation, beginning with orthopedic and neurological evaluations to identify what treatment methods will most positively impact each patient's whole-body health. Dr. Buhrman then designs a care regimen, which may combine therapies such as massage, custom nutrition based on a gene SNP DNA screening analysis, and jetpacks that reduce the impact of walking.
Fit Body Boot Camp's instructors all over the world share a common goal: to help clients hit their fitness and weight-loss goals with regimented training programs. Trainers lead group workouts that combine cardio with resistance exercises, strength training, and light alligator wrestling. They design the workouts to be as time-effective as possible and vary the routines constantly to avoid workout plateaus that can leave clients feeling uninspired. Trainers empower their students with healthy eating guidelines to keep motivation high outside of class.
During one-on-one sessions, certified personal trainers plan out tailored fitness programs, which clients can take with them to Fit Body Boot Camp’s gyms to continue shaping up on their own.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Sprawled out on the ground, sweaty, and holding a tire--this is how Kandis Dunn often leaves her charges at the end of one of her CrossBoot classes. The certified personal trainer and ultra-runner constantly changes her exercise routines, using variable training techniques and muscle confusion to dramatically reshape the body. Another added benefit to Kandis's outdoor CrossBoot classes is the supportive group environment where students cheer each other on as they bang out another set of kettlebell swings or challenge an old draw-bridge to see who can hold plank position the longest.
