Silverado Point Spa and Salons owes its every open hour to owner Connie Kotlowski and a team of smiling stylists, cosmetologists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. An authorized Bare Escentuals dealer, the spa tends to patrons' frames with nourishing body wraps and beautifies façades with mineral makeup. Five styles of massage erase tension from torsos and uneasy mannequins as soft lighting illuminates muted walls and understated yet elegant décor, enhancing the air of tranquility and restfulness. Joining the salon and spa are a tanning parlor with both traditional and spray-tanning options, and a coffee house featuring specialty drinks, sandwiches, a drive-thru and free WiFi.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 1,800 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio and Hammer Strength machines and hoist Iron Grip free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they?re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness?s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
When swimmers plunge into either the warm-water or lap pools at Pinnacle Health and Fitness, they might feel as if they?re relaxing in the ocean. That?s because the pool isn?t pumped with harsh chemicals?instead, the staff maintains a salt water system. And rather than restricting themselves to swim lessons and laps, the staff leads aquatic group exercise classes, aqua-based boot camps, and even personal-training sessions in the pool.
Their array of on-land fitness activities includes boot camps and group exercise classes such as kickboxing-based TurboKick, Zumba, and TRX Suspension Training.
Travis, Pinnacle Health and Fitness?s on-staff dietician, buttresses fitness routines with nutritional guidance. Personal trainers also assist patrons who want to get fit, lose weight, or focus on specific goals such as triathlon training, volleyball conditioning, and finally winning the egg-and-spoon race at the next family reunion. After workouts, members can reward themselves with a trip to the sauna or steam room, pick up a smoothie from the juice bar, or retrieve their offspring from the childcare center.
The Tutoring Center’s instructors follow a proven curriculum method that goes beyond merely helping students with their homework. The Rotational Approach to Learning, developed by Tutoring Center founder Edward S. Thalheimer, PhD, is designed to help students in grades K–12 overcome scholastic issues through one-to-one instruction sessions followed by short independent study sessions where they can apply what they just learned. Not only does this system boost grades in school but it also bolsters students’ self-confidence and ability to work effectively alone or if the rest of the quiz-bowl team got suspended. The Tutoring Center's individualized programs use this teaching system and focus on specific subjects, such as reading, math, writing, and pre-SAT prep or study skills.
