Tony Pearson and TJ de Angelis don't lean on their college educations to train athletes. Instead, they draw on years of competitive athletic experience ranging from Division I football at Oklahoma State University to Division II baseball at New Mexico Highlands University. When they offer advice on dealing with a sports-related injury or disability, they know it from firsthand experience. Together, the two trainers help young athletes and their families find a balance by creating a training platform that addresses every aspect of the athlete, including the part of them that wants to fit into their high school-prom tux again.
Omnibalance's trainers mostly work to design functional exercise programs to improve exercisers’ mental and physical strength. By creating regimens that improve endurance and physical capabilities, the team of trainers can prepare their students for specific sports or provide all-around athletic training for young athletes or anyone seeking to gain a greater degree of wellness.

Jab Fitness also boasts a number of highly structured fitness programs for children, so energetic tykes can tire themselves out while learning the self-defense boxing tactics necessary for uppercutting the monsters beneath their beds.

At Hegel Yoga, instructors delve deep into yogic study, teaching not only poses and breathing, but also the science at work within the body. The studio offers a unique, twelve-week yoga anatomy class that teaches how the muscles, blood, and respiratory systems interact with each other during each movement and pose throughout a yoga practice. [Instructors] (http://www.hegelyoga.com/AboutUs.html) also nurture each student’s exploration of Ashtanga technique, with beginning level classes that focus on foundational postures, movements, and mindful breathing. As students progress they build strength and endurance through standing poses, while slower floor postures help release tension in the hips and spine. Hegel also offers mysore, open-style sessions without instructor. These sessions allow students to come in and work at their own pace, making them ideal for yogis who march to the beat of their own feet drumming on the ceiling.
Shalimar Country Club's 2,417 yards of manicured golfing terrain are peppered with towering trees, slinking sand traps, and rolling hills. The design of the nine-hole, par-33 course masterfully incorporates its scenic assets—the fifth hole sits across a yawning lake, and the ninth hole's island green is flanked on all sides by water hazards, bunkers, and punks who steal golf balls for their solar-system dioramas. To be prepared to dodge these obstacles, players practice on a driving range and chipping-and-putting green. After their rounds, golfers can wander into the restaurant and lounge for a meal or a drink or peruse the golf shop to try on new apparel and test the mettle of name-brand equipment.
