Results Personal Training enlists certified male and female trainers to piece together personalized fitness and nutrition plans that target time-specific fitness goals and allow for anytime onsite access. When paired with a client, each trainer crafts a program geared toward desired results—such as muscle gain or weight loss—and an ultimate end date, which can correspond with upcoming weddings or long-awaited preschool reunions. One-hour workout sessions then draw on an armory of free weights and Pilates balls to activate different muscle groups and prevent bodies from adapting to the routine. With trainers always on standby, clients can walk in on the hour to start a training program without an appointment and report to the center an unlimited number of times per week.

Before each patron’s first workout, an on-staff nutritionist outlines a healthy meal plan customized to his or her needs. Each menu includes the amount of calories that they should consume per meal and day, a list of foods that rev up metabolisms, and arguments to convince tomatoes that they are vegetables. Clients can visit their nutritionists at any point during their membership, and weekly analyses of their progress ensure that they are staying well on track to meet their health objectives.

Thomas Volmer credits his wife, Rachel, for inspiring them to start helming boot camps. She wasn’t always a fitness guru, though. "She was a commercial banker and she was 70 pounds overweight," Volmer recalls. Once she started to reclaim her life, "she just fell in love with fitness," he says. She eventually dropped 80 pounds with proper exercise and nutrition, spurring her to earn her AFAA personal training certification and pursue a career as a full-time trainer.

Personal experience lends Rachel and the other trainers—including Sharon Monk, who lost more than 200 pounds by exercising and eating healthily—empathy and a motivating demeanor when working with campers. At each location, they get groups doing pushups, swinging kettlebells, and flipping tires in a positive environment that's focused on teamwork, rather than competition. "You start as a group, you finish as a group," says Thomas. "But the activities that you do in between might be different based on your abilities."

In addition to leading sessions, Rachel creates easy-to-use online meal plans (including a vegetarian plan), which campers can customize to help them stay on track. Options range from the simple, such as cereal with fruits, nuts, and flaxseeds, to the creative, including honey-sweetened oatmeal peanut-butter cookies. She also includes the calorie count for each recipe. Users can pick from simple meals made for one person or larger entrees designed with an entire family or pet elephant in mind.

Although Stewart Yaros has performed with numerous elite companies, including the Boston Ballet and the Basel Ballet in Switzerland, his true passion is teaching dance. Teaching allowed the University of Massachusetts and Martha Mahr School of Ballet alumnus to combine his finely honed dance expertise and his zeal for communicating with others via the "common language" of dance in particular and the arts in general.

That theme of unity and togetherness dates back to the early days of Dance International, circa 1991, when the now bustling center for dance tutoring consisted of three students, their devoted teacher, and an old player piano that played Chopsticks. Today, the organization has swelled into a hub for upbeat, accessible instruction from professional-level teachers and is well-known for organizing the Austin Ballroom Festival.

Part of the guiding vision for Dance International is a focus on community service, as well as promoting the arts by introducing music and visual forms into the dance milieu. True to its multidisciplinary ambitions, the Dance International empire recently achieved 501(c)3 national nonprofit status and will soon add art and music classes.

TH3 arcade brings joystick jocks together in a dynamic space that fosters multiple styles of simulated competition and collaboration. Guests can exhaust their digital trigger-fingers at TH3 Zone, a green-lit gallery of 22 Xbox systems where clients seated in leather chairs engage in the hyper-realistic, strategic carnage of the Halo, Modern Warfare, or Wheel of Fortune franchises, viewed through the prism of a personal 1080p LED monitor. For serious tournament or cooperative play, gamers 16 years and older can descend into TH3 Bunker, where two private rooms allow teams to make tactical adjustments without being overheard by enemy surveillance. For more casual simulated dabbling, guests can chill out at TH3 Lounge, where they can tap into multiple gaming consoles plugged into monitors set up opposite cushy couches.

TH3 arcade keeps parched gamers playing with concessions that can be delivered to gaming stations with the touch of a button, allowing players uninterrupted concentration during final-round showdowns or attempts to name every controller in the complex.

In a world where monsters, aliens, and zombies freely roam convention tables and hatch plans to steal all the autograph markers, luckily there are superheroes around too. At the El Paso Comic Con, it's nearly guaranteed you'll see your favorite freakish idols of page and screen?or at least people dressed up as them?whatever their allegiances may be. In addition to cosplay contests and a convention floor filled with likeminded attendees, EPCON also brings in dozens of vendors who sell comics, artwork, and rarities. Special guests also show up, often including stars from Star Trek or other fantastic worlds from TV and the movies.
