When discussing Breakthrough Fitness’s training philosophy with reporters from the Seminole Voice, owner and lead trainer Dominic Lucibello quipped, “we train movements, not muscles.” That’s why the fitness coach eschews machines that focus on only one area of the body for training equipment that utilizes many muscles at once. Drawing from his degree in exercise science and his years as a certified personal trainer, Dominic joins a staff of seasoned coaches to lead group fitness classes, semiprivate training sessions, and sports conditioning programs. They’ve stocked their spacious sunlit studio with kettlebells, free weights, and suspension bands, leading clients through high-intensity functional exercises designed to increase their muscle tone and chances of being elected their state’s congressional power ranger. Their dedicated program-writing department draws up customized workout plans for members based on their current level of fitness, taking into account their interests and goals.
Emboldened by her training at High-Tech Institute, Sarah Elliott set out to ease her clients' tension and help them regain bodily harmony by opening her own studio in the Serenity Center. As guests recline on a microfiber blanket in a private, candlelit massage room, Sarah mends muscles with an array of soothing massage modalities, some of which incorporate essential oils and hot stones. During integrated-massage sessions, she combines Swedish relaxation techniques with trigger-point therapy, deep-tissue massage, and stretching to loosen muscles and subdue pain. As a prenatal-certified therapist, Sarah can also treat expectant mothers suffering from nausea, back pain, and stress through targeted kneading. Regular recipients of massage therapy often cite a host of benefits, such as better sleep, improved concentration, and the ability to finish friends’ sentences for them.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
Listening to music from a young age does more than help someone dance well enough to get on the Jumbotron during basketball games. It can also improve a child's brain development, social skills, and emotional connections. The staff at Grow and Sing Studios make it their mission to aid in the development of children through a wide variety of age-appropriate classes. Instructors lead students through activities steeped in song and rhythm, from the parent-baby drumming in Kindermusik Village to the group sing-alongs during Music for Aardvarks. They also teach piano lessons.
Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
With a collection of Flyboards, which combine jet-ski horsepower and jetpack form, at their disposal, FlyBoard Rentals of Orlando grants momentary relief from the burden of gravity. Invented by champion jet skier Frank Zapata, the Flyboard's foot- and arm-mounted nozzles harness the turbocharged engine of a modern jet ski to propel riders up to 30 feet into the air, beneath the surface of the ocean, and directly into Justice League headquarters.
