Complete Nutrition recognizes that dietary supplements fill only one realm of a healthy lifestyle, so the team also emphasizes hydration, exercise, and a balanced diet. To help clients achieve such well-rounded wellness, the stores employ certified personal trainers and strength coaches, who educate customers while simultaneously showing them how to flex the bridge of their nose.
The brains behind Complete Nutrition collaborate with nutritionists and healthcare providers to formulate new proprietary supplements for their shelves. In addition to designing products that can help patrons lose weight, build muscle, or increase their energy, the teams also figure out how to combine complementary supplements into specialized kits, which compound the effects of individual products.
Licensed Zumba instructor Beth Golden—who also holds certifications from the AFAA, Red Cross, and PADI—leads easy-to-follow dance routines inspired by Latin salsa, merengue, and tango moves. A soundtrack of high-energy tunes and rolling r’s keep students motivated as she helps them shimmy off pounds with or without the help of muscle-toning sticks. She regularly changes up her dance routines to prevent boredom and keep feet guessing. In addition to group classes in the studio, Beth hosts private Zumba parties, taking her portable speakers and headset to beaches, parks, offices, or clients' homes to liven up special events.
Beneath a canopy of towering palms, visitors to Sarasota Children’s Garden trace a winding pathway around a koi pond and animal topiaries. The idyllic environs stem from owner Joan Condon’s vision to provide a playspace immersed in Sarasota’s natural beauty. Garden curators hone in on nature’s whimsical side, dotting the premises with fairy gardens and sculptures of mythical creatures. Beyond providing ample space for frolicking and befriending retired tooth fairies, the garden also strives to introduce stewardship to young minds with classes and events.
Flip Flop Shops outfits bare feet with stylish footwear from brands such as Roxy, Havaianas, and Volcom. Customers can engage in bold displays of barefoot exhibitionism with an array of women's footwear, including the sateen sheen of a braided bounce sandal by Cobain ($26), or a pair of Reef braideau sandals ($28) ideal for taunting ornery sand crabs. Masculine sand strollers can garb digits with the island-inspired exuberance of Flojos Catalina men's sandals ($30). And pint-size pedis nab their own open-air flair with a vibrant array of kids' flip-flops, such as Havaianas kids team sandal ($12.50), which attracts more attention than a fish out of water at the aquarium.
