    Feezell, Dr. Randall E.
    In a nutshell - I lost 50 lbs in 4's how we did it. My husband and I were 50+ lbs. overweight, OK, maybe 70 lbs., friends of ours told us about Dr. Feezell and the New Directions program that they started and were seeing great results. I was all-in, my husband was skeptical, but we both acknowledged that if we didn't do this weight loss in a sensible way (being in our 50's), it wouldn't stick and it could be dangerous. Dr. Feezell believes in treating the entire person and being medically safe, not just getting you to a certain weight. We went to the orientation and were impressed immediately with Dr. Feezell and his staff. We decided to try it; not only did it seem to be working for our friends, but the fact that we were medically tested prior to starting (full blood workup, EKG, etc.) made me feel better about it. I knew my blood test would show high chol. and triglycerides and I was surprised that I wasn't admonished for it, but it was a point in time to start. The first week was not easy, but I've been eating Pop-tarts or muffins for YEARS. I can tell you that the first 2 days were hard - I was craving carbs - but after that, the cravings went away and I NEVER felt hungry - the best part was that I didn't have to cook, shop for groceries or worry about what was for dinner. I have lost it a little slower than I would have liked, but after 4 months, I hit my 50 lbs. lost!!!!! I'm healthier than I have been in 20 years, feel great, have lots of energy (no need for naps) and no longer reward myself with a snack on the way home from the grocery store. I am still on it, my total weight loss is 65 lbs. and am starting the "adapting" phase, where they introduce you to food that you need to eat to maintain your weight. This is a fantastic way to lose weight while being medically supervised - I meet weekly with one of the nurses and monthly with Dr. Feezell - I HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone for safe weight loss that produces results.

    Alltime Family Fitness
    We have been using them for 6 years. I go there every day. They have new and good equipment. The building is probably 20 years old or so, but is a modern building. They have free weights, exercise machines, elliptical bike, recombinant exercise machines, StairMaster, back exercise machines, treadmill, stationary bikes, and inclined ramps for sit-ups. Anything you would find in a modern large city fitness center, you will find there. They are well stocked in terms of their machines and training equipment. The environment inside the gym is user friendly. They have a large room specifically for women having its own resistance training machine. The women could go to any part of the gym, but there is women's portion for women only. It is exceptionally clean and well lighted. They provide a swipe card and you can enter any time. It is open from 10 in the morning to 6 at night. There is a women's locker room and men's locker room for showering and changing clothes. There are lockers available. The ambiance is conducive to exercise. They have a pipe-in music that has a good beat to it. They also have two televisions with independent channel selectors for people who are doing the treadmills and the stationary bicycles and recombinant machines. They can sit there watch. They use head phones to pick up the audio. I would rate them highly. I will absolutely use them in the future.

    Walton Life Fitness Center
    They have an amazing amount of equipment and the circuit room is great. It is a room with about 10 stations that each work different parts of your body in 1-2 minute increments. The pool is amazing and the customer service is pretty good. The fitness center also offers free classes on certain days whether it be zumba, yoga, and whatever else you can find available.

    Fitness Unlimited
    It is $35 a month.  I like their location because it is close to me, they have all of the equipment that I need, but some of their equipment is outdated.  The staff is very friendly.  You have a 24 hour a day option, you just have to pay extra.

    Alltime Family Fitness
    I've been going to Alltime Family Fitness for a few years now. The owners are friendly with fantastic service. The facility is always very clean. You have access 24 hours a day. It's a very safe environment with cameras available for security. I enjoy going and would highly recommend Alltime Fitness to anyone. A great fitness center!

    Heber Springs Community Center
    They are wonderful for fitness. It opened up about 2 years ago and it is $10 a month.  It is cheap, clean and friendly. They have any machine that you could want or need. Anywhere else is twice or triple the price. You buy 3 months at a time and their is no contract. If you add someone it is even cheaper. They take donations too.

    City of Rogers Adult Wellness Center
    The fee is $60/year.  To find access to all this exercise equipment at a similar rate is unheard of.  The down side might be that there is very little coaching or instruction.  They do have classes that you can take for a range of fees.

    Overall I was satisfied with Hitchcock Academy of Martial Arts because of the clean, friendly, comfortable atmosphere I found there, after being surprised to fine it in Waldron, Arkansas.  I was interested in working out, but found the availability of Martial Arts Classes added to the attractiveness of the place.  Tread mills can get boring and some martial arts training might be fun, but at this point I am still considering doing that.

    Titan Martial Arts
    From my first conversation with the owner/instructor, Mr. P.J. Bonner, I was troubled that he seemed,at best, to be unable to describe what type  of martial arts he planned to teach the children.  At worst, he seemed to be confused about this himself.  When classes began a month later, my husband and I were alarmed at the about $200 worth of equipment we were expected to buy and the fact that he insisted we buy it from him.  We were not newcomers to martial arts and we already owned a full set of protective pads for our child, but he insisted without seeing what we had that only his equipment was good enough.  After we attended the first class in a basic martial arts gi, we found that he insisted that the children could only wear black shorts and his logo T-shirts that, again, we HAD to buy form him.  At another time, we were told that we had to spend another $35 to buy FROM HIM a gi with his logo on the back. We began to feel like he recruited students only to sell more and more things to their parents.   But our misgivings were, for a time, overcome by Mr. Bonner's considerable charm and his warm interaction style with the children.   I was concerned that the class included kids from as young as kindergarten up to age 11 or twelve, from tiny tots to full-sized preteens.  Then as classes progressed, the children were told to engage in increasingly aggressive, no-holds-barred grappling and sparring sessions.  I witnessed my husky daughter being regularly paired with opponents who were 2 to 3 years older than she and considerably taller, though not heavier, than she.  I saw her repeatedly put into choke holds and other holds about the head.  The teacher was also seeing this and did nothing to intervene or instruct the older kids to be safe around the younger ones, except an occasional remark about being "using control."  He never explained what he meant by this.  When I expressed my concern to him about the choke holds, his response was to tell me that I had to trust him to keep my child safe and he had to be free to match the kids with opponents of his choosing.  I watched each Monday class with increasing anxiety; I stopped attending Wednesday classes because I could not stand to watch the wrestling sessions where the choke holds were used.  Eventually, my daughter was injured by another child's hook punch that made a hard impact under her jaw in an area not covered by her headgear and snapped her head back.  Mr. Bonner noted this and told my daughter to shake it off and get back in there.  She sat on the sidelines of the mat and her eyes filled with tears.  I smiled at her from  my chair at the back, hoping to reassure her.  She got up and came to me and laid her head in my lap and wept.  She asked me to take her home.  As there were 10 minutes left in the class, I agreed.  I had to walk, shoe less, on to the back part of the mat to get her bag of expensive gear before we could go.  Bonner at this point walked over to us to see why my child did not get back in the fight.  He asked to speak tome.  We walked a short distance away, where he proceeded to dress me down: "In the future, you do not walk on my mat and you do not call her over to you..." etc.  When he paused, I explained that as I was not a child and a student, he should not be issuing orders.  I tried to explain that she came to me and that because she was so upset we were leaving.  He told me she had to get back in and said, I will never forget: "My gym, my rules."  So I responded, "My child, and I will decide what she needs."  And I walked away. The last straw came in April when I picked Miranda up on a Wednesday and she was in tears again.  She told me that a new big boy was in class and that she had been asked to grapple with him, and that the big boy had lifted her off he feet and thrown her onto her back.  She hit her head hard when she landed and she was in pain.  We didn't talk much more about the incident until the weekend, when she asked me if she could quit martial arts.  I asked her why she wanted to quit.  She said that she saw in class that Bonner would cheer and clap and congratulate kids when they got hurt.  She said that she felt like Bonner wanted the kids to hurt each other.  She said she did not feel safe in his classes. No one had any further contact with Bonner until he sent me an e-mail in May asking for the next tuition payment.  So I responded to him that my child had decided to quit.  He asked again about being paid.  I responded I would let my husband work that out with him.  Bonner responded with an extremely offensive text messaging, threatening to turn me over to his lawyer for non-payment of our contract.  I had never mentioned even the possibility that we would not pay.  i responded that I did not like his threats, and then his next message was overflowing with the words "yes ma'am."  And he asked for money again. That is pretty much the pattern with Bonner.  He is fluent in superficial courtesies.  But his arrogance is overwhelming.  And it is this arrogance that interferes with his ability to run a business and to provide a safe learning environment for the children he purports to teach.  I have known many gentle, humble, kind people who practice and teach martial arts that I am proud to call my friends.  There is no reason to put up with this guy's personality problems.  And I warn you that your children are not safe if you entrust them to this man.

    Nu Energy Weight Management & Spa
    I arrived 10 minutes early and the girl at the desk never greeted me I sat there for 14 minutes before another girl asked if I could be helped while she was texting on her phone. I explained I was here for a consultation and she said and quot;OH OKand quot; and began to speak to the other girl in Spanish! really uncomfortable. She hands me a clipboard and a pen and say k just fill this out and walks away. I fill out the form and put in on the desk wait another 10 minutes the girl behind the desk is eating Hershey kisses and drinking a coke? Weight loss facility that is weird! Then I finally get taken in the room the girl asks me what do you want here. I said excuse me, what do you want why did you come in today? I said Like I said on the phone I want to learn about the program. She said ok and she pulls out a price sheet asks me how much weight I want to lose gives me a quote of over 300 bucks and says you want to join. HAHAHAHHA, what a joke. I asked about the full diagnostic test I was told I would get and I asked how the program works and she said I had to sign up first to get this information. I politely declined and left. They call me 3 times a week and I repeatedly tell them I am not interested so maybe if I let others know what they are doing wrong they will change. I will never use this service and I would not recommend anyone else does.
