The YMCA of Coastal Georgia promotes healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility through a variety of fitness and wellness classes. Membership includes access to gymnasiums, pools, strength and cardio equipment, and group exercise classes such as Contoured Bodies at the Effingham branch, in which simple deep-muscle movements tone the body to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and the likelihood of causing nearby coworkers to sit up straighter in their chairs. Various locations host traditional yoga and flexibility-technique classes, and Zumba classes fuse energetic music with calorie-burning dance moves for a lively workout experience. Groupon buyers also receive $25 to use toward classes, programs, and benefits not included in the monthly membership, such as a 30-minute massage from a licensed massage therapist ($25 for members), or a fall youth soccer session ($50+ for members) that teaches good sportsmanship, the value of exercise, and the importance of being able to manipulate a large object with one's forehead.
Over the course of a 15-year career, chiropractor Trek R. Smith has learned a lot about the body. He guides the staff at Back to Health Chiropractic with this knowledge, working to treat headaches, chronic pain, and other conditions, as well as helping his patients bounce back after accident or injury. Using advanced techniques such as spinal decompression, electrical muscle stimulation, and sweet-talking your vertebrae, the clinic’s team moves patients toward a state of improved health and reduced pain. Additionally, Smith and his staff can suggest herbal and nutritional supplements to help boost health and performance.
Lord Eye Center's showroom currently boasts thousands of frames from over 30 designer lines. Its refracted selection has expanded over the past 30 years under the direction of Lord Eye's founder, Dr. R. Whitman Lord, who is vice president of the Georgia State Board of Examiners in Optometry. His staff of certified optometrists can straighten a distorted reality typically within an hour, using the on-site optical lab and privileged access to the Matrix's source code. Bringing some panache to impaired pupils, the Lord Eye Center carries a plethora of frames from designer brands such as Candies ($128+), Harley Davidson ($128+), Guess ($168+), and Nike ($198+). Single lenses ($69+) discipline myopic peepers into long-distance focus and bifocals ($99+) render both newspapers and stop signs comprehensible.
