The grueling, seven-hour Krav Maga black belt test has an average pass rate of 50%—that is, at least, unless you’ve trained at Krav Maga Houston, which boasts an untrammeled pass rate of 100%. Such impressive pass rates are made possible by 2nd Dan black belt, C.J. Kirk, who helms a vetted and experienced team of instructors that teaches the Israeli fighting system to amateurs, military personnel, and law enforcement officers. Classes educate pupils on all aspects of the discipline, including how to respond to stress, act on instinct, and execute textbook strikes, blocks, and Eskimo kisses. To accommodate all levels, the center offers flexible class times as well as time slots dedicated to childrens’ fitness and fighting classes.

It's easy to see that Sherry Summers-Ball is passionate about the human body. She has traveled throughout Texas training doctors, clinicians, and therapists in Endermologie; and she has advanced knowledge on post-surgery healing. She now runs Body BeneFits, which has received many accolades in Living Magazine's Best of The Woodlands, including best spa, med spa, facials, tanning, waxing, and massage.
Under Sherry's guidance a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and medical professionals beautify bodies with time-tested and cutting-edge treatments. An array of body wraps, such as the Sudatonic infrared Detox wrap, help to smooth and soften the skin, whereas Endermologie treatments help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Clients can also receive services such as skin tightening, IPL, and laser hair removal. And just walking into Body BeneFits itself can help clients relax—an orchid blossoms inside the lobby, which soothes eyes with neutral tones and cradles bodies on a giant sectional sofa.
Doctors of Chiropractic Daniel Dannug and Alayna Pagnani both graduated from Texas Chiropractic College with recognition and have degrees in biology. The two Texas natives leverage their advanced educations to see to the needs of clients afflicted with a diverse range of conditions, and they do so using multiple approaches for ailments. They can address back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, or an ankle sprain. But they don't just put some ice on the area of pain and send their client home. Dr. Dannug and Dr. Pagnani treat the body as a whole, and they get to the root of the problem and treat its cause. This is why HealthPro Chiropractic & Acupuncture’s list of services is so long. By combining traditional chiropractic work with other approaches such as acupuncture, cold laser therapy, and the Graston method, the doctors are able to mitigate a range of problems as wide as Virginia when it stretched to the Pacific.
