Golf Shores Fun Center's mini metropolis of family fun welcomes guests of all ages with two mini-golf courses, an arcade, and ample space for groups of frolicking tykes. Sapphire waters trickle down stone walls and spring from rocky outcrops alongside the outdoor mini-golf course, where subtly sloping greens can complicate even the shortest of gimmies. At Golf Shores' indoor course, players traverse a darkened wonderland illuminated by black lights and neon décor, where both jungle- and underwater-themed decorations convince phosphorescent golf balls that they are amphibious.
Alongside the putters' park, joystick jockeys can warp into the Center's video arcade and take aim at pixilated game in Extreme Hunting or contemplate the nutritional value of blue ghosts while playing Ms. Pac-Man. The Center also encompasses a cozy coffee shop with free wireless Internet.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
Before he studied fitness at Purdue, Chris Tedesco learned the subtle art of inspiring others during a trek through the dessert. As a Marine squad leader, he needed to keep up morale while getting his troops to march across 36 miles of arid wilderness with him. This same determination saw him straight through to three Ironman Platoon championships. Today, as owner and founder of BodyQuest Personal Training, he brings those heat-honed lessons with him to each session, just as he did when he helped a snowboarder recover from near total-lower-body paralysis.
He and his team of four dedicated trainers partner up with clients, getting to know them, their eating habits, and their fitness goals to help them lead healthier lives. They constantly vary exercises via a circuit designed to keep bodies burning fat long after the workout and even tailor training-session soundtracks to suit clients' whims, so long as those whims don't include whale songs as covered by an eccentric theremin player. The exposed brick walls of his gym feature wooden sculpture and wall hangings that capture the feeling of motion, perhaps subliminally inspiring patrons to push themselves.
From ancient Greece to modern India, the healing power of heat has been recognized throughout the world by such medically conscious minds as Hippocrates and Bikram Choudhury. A good sweat releases tension, increases flexibility, and purifies the body of toxins. Combine healthy perspiration with stretches that activate certain joints or compress particular organs, and the result can spur the body’s natural healing processes and increase strength. Such is the philosophy behind Bikram yoga and the many other varieties of hot yoga taught at Heat Yoga & Wellness.
The studio’s bendy instructors teach nine varieties of yoga. Their Bikram classes follow the traditional format of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, all practiced in a studio heated to more than 100 degrees. They mix up the standard routine with classes that incorporate hip-opener exercises, which improve lower-body mobility and make it easier to limbo under a closing garage door. Hot Vinyasa classes begin with a series of sun salutations before moving to more intense cardio and weight-bearing asana postures. The expert yogis also stretch outside the bounds of traditional yoga for exercise ins
Lasers can be used to solve virtually any problem at Ultimate Vein Care. Specifically, the technicians?under the guidance of board-certified vascular surgeons?enlist three different cosmetic laser systems that provide them with the flexibility to treat various skincare conditions using minimally invasive means. By bombarding the skin with specific wavelengths of laser light energy, the technicians are able to rid clients' bodies of unsightly stubble or spider veins, and they can also improve the skin's overall tone and texture by minimizing the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. The versatility of the laser systems allows the staff to more effectively treat clients with a range of skin types. However, lasers aren't the center's only recourse for dealing with varicose or spider veins. Sclerotherapy is also an option, sealing off blood vessels with the help of very fine injections instead of microscopic strands of caution tape.
