The MyoFitness instructors work hard to knock down the barriers that prevent people from getting fit. Rather than summoning clients to gyms, they come to homes and offices for private personal-training and private yoga sessions, sparing clients the hassle of driving home sweaty or finding a babysitter for their needy, needy house plant. Unlike following along to yoga and fitness videos, this brand of one-on-one attention helps ensure proper form and reduce the chance of injury. And to assist with ongoing progress, the instructors also dole out nutrition advice and counseling tailored to suit the needs of each client.
Though programs vary based on each individual, trainers typically begin programs with a focus on core strength and balance skills, and then move on to secondary muscle movements—a progression designed to reduce the risk of injury. In addition to participating in on-location sessions, clients can opt to meet trainers at the gym or join group fitness classes and rigorous boot-camp workouts.
Invisalign aligns teeth with a series of clear, removable trays made to fit each client's mouth structure. To prepare teeth for the see-through straightening, an experienced dentist conducts an initial Invisalign exam, checking the strength and health of teeth without playing a "Guess Your Tooth Strength and Health" carnival game. The canine consultation includes a set of x-rays and impressions to determine the severity of spacing and alignment issues. Those choosing to proceed with the mouth-formatting service are fitted for the Invisalign removable trays and are given a $1,000 discount off the total cost of the service (usually around $3,500–$6,000).

For more than 20 years, the techs at Five Star Furnace—a family-owned-and-operated enterprise—have been minimizing fire hazards, ousting excess dust, and even helping to alleviate physical symptoms such as watery eyes and sore throats by cleaning out air vents. They use a negative-air-pressure method, which involves sending a powerful vacuum unit into main trunk lines, and use poles, brushes, pressurized air, and rubber whip heads to handle individual vents. All of Five Star's HVAC methods and equipment are National Air Duct Cleaning Association–certified.
In the late 1970s, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's particular set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
