Durell Dental's experienced staff specializes in creating sparkling smiles, uniting personalized service with technologically advanced equipment. Each two-hour Zoom! whitening appointment commences with a careful prep of lips and gums, ensuring soft tissues remain protected. Next, the light-activated Zoom! hydrogen-peroxide gel is applied to teeth, setting the stage for the special light to beam down its grin-whitening rays. Patients relax in one of the private rooms, watching one of the in-room TVs or listening to XM radio, as the light and gel work together to gently break up deep stains, discoloration, and Tooth Fairy crime rings, resulting in chompers that can be 6–10 shades whiter.
Planet Fitness embodies a judgment-free zone where guests of all ages and fitness levels can sculpt their physiques with myriad aerobic and strength-training options within a friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere.

With the help of a trained instructor, guests can design a custom workout program based on exercise history, medical background, and goals of completing an underwater bicycle race. Thirty-minute small-group classes concentrate on strengthening and toning specific body parts, and others promote salubrious bodies with full-body circuit workouts designed to give each and every lackadaisical muscle a Popeye-like infusion of metaphorical spinach.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year.

Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or bop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
For more than 17 years, Natasha Walker has practiced yoga—honing her craft everywhere from local studios and public parks to the comfort of her own living room. The seasoned yogi was eager to share her passion with others, so she learned the ropes of power yoga instruction at Colorado's CorePower Yoga. Today, Natasha runs Transcend, where she gears her moderately paced Vinyasa power yoga sequences to beginners. She sets sessions to music and guides students through moves intended to stimulate the entire body by building strength and increasing flexibility. Natasha runs through the sequence during morning classes six days a week alongside evening wind-down classes twice a week.
