Catering to competitive athletes as well as casual enthusiasts, Peak Performance Fitness' instructors motivate visitors to bolster their quality of life and overall wellbeing with training regimens that address specific attributes. Their high-intensity routines are designed to improve agility, balance, or speed, although they can also adopt a broader approach. Circuit training and CrossFit workouts based on functional exercises each emphasize the importance of engaging muscle groups across the entire body. Similarly, the mixed martial arts and boxing classes incorporate practical skills into total-body workouts, developing strength and stamina while teaching attendees how to safely defend themselves and subdue sentient punching bags.
Though their workouts are tough, the trainers promote a friendly and noncompetitive atmosphere in which fit-seekers of any ability can get into shape. Further enriching their clients' wellness, they also offer nutritional guidelines.
As a trained aesthetician and makeup artist, Jade Olsen has seen it all, from glitter-dusted eyelids to fake gashes across the face. But more importantly, she has personally applied it all. It is with this hands-on experience that Jade has honed her aesthetic skills, which she showcases from within Tropical Sun Tanning Resort. During makeup applications, bare faces are dolled up with smoky eyes, glossy lips, and blushed cheeks using top-quality products from Urban Decay, Temptu, MAC, and Ben Nye. Lash lines are also given the royal treatment as Jade darkens and defines them by painlessly applying natural-looking extensions or miniature steel scepters to each individual lash.
