Having accrued 15 years of teaching experience, the staff members at Tennis Innovators prioritize exciting instruction and curriculums over barraging students with volley after volley. They appreciate the challenge of holding a child's interest and create fun drills for junior pupils, who can begin to learn racket-swinging techniques as early as age 3. The QuickStart and JuniorExtreme programs act as intriguing introductions to the sport for adolescents and work on improving their coordination, mobility, and athleticism, both on and off the court. In fact, they don't require a court to host their afterschool programs and will adapt lessons to fit any suitable space, such as a gymnasium or the least occupied patch of an in-use baseball diamond.
Classes aren't just for children—the staff hosts adult sessions aimed at improving overall game play and fitness in a supportive environment for fully formed humans of all skill levels. Staffers also lend their management expertise to neighborhood tennis clubs, providing guidance for hiring and training processes, court maintenance, and marketing.
At Central Park Medical Practice, Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova treats patients by engaging her two specialties: women’s medicine and aesthetics. Her gynecology and fertility treatments maintain reproductive health, and her beauty services enhance physiques. Microdermabrasion, for example, sloughs away the skin’s rough surface layer, exposing the more youthful hide beneath; laser hair removal’s long pulses of light noninvasively reduce stubble and destroy any miniature planets orbiting the head.
Instead of setting up shop inside a brick-and-mortar building, Classtivity stretches its fitness-bestowing reach throughout five cities, inviting people to burn calories, tone muscles, or find inner peace—all on their own schedule. Students simply search for the type of class they wish to take, such as yoga, cardio dance, or strength training, along with the time, price range, and location, before booking it online. With hundreds of activities and 20,000 available classes, the right class is always just around the corner. The company even includes classes in artistic pursuits such as guitar and painting. Classtivity’s CEO and founder Payal Kadakia sums up the business’s philosophy succinctly: “Because finding a class shouldn’t be harder than taking one.”
