While Dave Updike's passion for photography isn't surprising—his grandfather and father both owned photography studios—Jacques Nell only fell for the art form in his 20s after taking some formal classes. Dave's more than 35 years of experience and Jacques' passion for portraiture form the current backbone of JayLynn Studios, a studio in business since 1906. In addition to Dave and Jacques' pictorial expertise, JayLynn Studios' partnership with CoverLook—represented for the last 20 years by certified makeover maiden Cynthia Kimball—beautifies clientele for in-studio or on-location shoots. Specialists hand finish each print package for families, high-school seniors, weddings, or businesses with precise retouching, finishing, and gentle caressing of printed images.

The rental stores of years past were filled with televisions broadcasting out-of-date trailers and celebrity interviews. Gamers Rentals, on the other hand, is a modern rental store, full of visitors playing games on Playstation 3 and Wii systems, or making use of the fleet of computers. Amid the excitement is a library of current games and movies for rent, including popular series such as Call of Duty and Men in Black.
Gold’s Gym lures fitness seekers from all walks of life with cardio decks, strength-training equipment, and aerobics rooms filled with energizing classes. Instead of reciting Shakespearean monologues as they jog and pedal, guests can watch movies in a cardio theater lined with treadmills, bikes, and an oversize projection screen. Free weights encourage biceps to bulge, and resistance machines tone arms, abs, and legs. Sports lovers dribble basketballs and volley racquetballs on shiny courts (available at most locations), raising their heart rates as they hone hand-eye coordination. Like the nightly news, Zumba classes take an hour and set Latin-inspired dance moves that vaporize calories to vibrant world music, along with a slew of available selections, including cardio and spin classes. Consult each location’s webpage for a class schedule and a list of additional amenities, which range from childcare to personal training (not included in today’s Groupon).
When the American Heart Association was founded by six cardiologists in 1924, the only prescriptions given for heart disease were permanent bed rest and a diet of Valentines Day cards. Almost 90 years and 22.5 million volunteers later, the organization has accomplished much to combat the number one cause of death in the United States, not only by developing and disseminating effective treatment plans, but also by increasing awareness of preventative care and raising money for cardiovascular and stroke research. Outreach programs include CPR training, fundraising run/walks, and essential programs for healthcare professionals, educators, and caregiving everyday heroes alike.
At Dogs R Us, pups lap up first-class care from award-winning trainers and a knowledgeable, keen-eyed staff. Four-pawed guests come and go as they please between a climate-controlled indoor play area and a spacious outdoor yard, where they can bound through swimming pools or take a breather under the canopy.
The facility's full-service grooming shop keeps bow-wows looking fresh, and an onsite pet store stocks its shelves with all the necessary supplies for keeping pets happy and healthy. Tail-wagging worthy luxuries continue into the evening with overnight stays, which take place in bedrooms large enough for pooches to fit all their belongings, such as toys, beds, and life-size cardboard cutouts of their owners.
