At the five-star, PADI-authorized training facility, certified instructors teach recreational and technical diving skills in classes that range from introductory dive lessons to Divemaster accreditation courses. PADI Discover Scuba sessions let sub-aquatic hobbyists dive into the world of underwater inhalation without any previous experience, and open-water certification classes test candidates with course materials, pool trainings, and four open-water dives at West Hawk Lake, mortal enemy of East Falcon Lagoon. Along with certification courses, Underworld Scuba & Sport trains people in specialties such as cavern diving, wreck diving, and ice diving. When staffers aren't readying the next generation of divers, they lead trips to Grand Cayman and Bonaire or supply customers with brand name diving gear in the shop.
Even after opening his own clinic in 2004, Dr. Manfred Ziesmann continues to split time between three other area offices, practicing a craft he's mastered over the course of more than 25 years in the industry. Working in tandem with a quartet of nurses and laser technicians who harmonize lullabies as they ease patients into surgery, Dr. Ziesmann delicately uplifts hips, tummies, facial tissue, and chests. Thirteen nonsurgical specialties further enhance clients' anatomies, including laser treatments that coax hair to regrow and infrared treatments that tighten skin. The clinic also offers dermal fillers, which smooth facial wrinkles and plump pouts from the inside, leaving results that are far more permanent than those obtained by applying lots of lipstick or kissing a vacuum-cleaner nozzle.
Medi Spa Laser Skin Renewal Clinic's three board-certified dermatologists procure advanced aesthetic procedures, techniques and equipment to bolster their clients' bodily beauty. During a pulsed light hair removal treatment, the Palomar Pulsed Light System disables overzealous follicles with a karate chop of concentrated photons.

Treatments for the underarm (a $341.60 value) and upper lip (a $280.60 value) can take roughly ten minutes. Afterwards, clients may feel a sunburn sensation, minor swelling, and a strange feeling that they've been through all of this before.
Every week, certified yoga instructors help guests stretch into fitter versions of themselves, drawing from their certifications in yoga and fitness training. Seasoned yogis at the Curves club lead all classes within its comfortable facilities. As a Curves trainer, Debra Vandekerkhove also holds within her mental hard drive an encyclopedic knowledge of diets, nutrition, and the favourite snacks of 19th-century prime ministers.
Dermatologist Dr. Minuk, winner of several Consumer Choice Awards, and his experienced staff vanquish the appearance of aging with noninvasive procedures. Botox treatments take about 10 minutes and smooth out wrinkles via injections containing a natural, purified protein that yields quick results. Crow's feet and other fine lines keep themselves at bay for 3–5 months, and little-to-no downtime means that patients can stop in to service their faces during their lunch hours or between pie-eating contests.
