Zumba with Sharon and Roz has accomplished something rare—making exercise something to look forward to. The two certified instructors personally lead each Zumba workout, creating a party-like atmosphere as they cycle through dance moves to the tune of international music. The sounds of grunts and laughter mix over the course of each 55-minute session as students work out their abdomens by crouching down to marvel at their swiftly moving feet. Though the schedule sometimes varies, it generally includes morning classes on the weekends and night classes throughout the week.
Each Eye Doctor’s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop’s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp’s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
Under the supervision of physician and skin care specialist Dr. Eyad Alsabbagh, Dania Medical Esthetique’s skilled staff helps clients achieve aesthetic goals with a diverse palette of cosmetic and medical services.
