FERNDALE — After many months of closures, gyms and fitness studios across Michigan were allowed to reopen Sept. 9.

Heiress learns that you can have fun without money on Rich Kids, Skint Holiday

A rich heiress used to the finer things in life – including £8,000 pieces of jewellery and a £31,000 car to drive – gets a tough wake up call while on holiday with a skint family. 

Roumaissa, 18, from London, spends a few days in Norfolk with self-employed handyman Neil and part-time teacher at a school for special needs children Nicky Cope and their three daughters, Grace, 14, and twins Lauren and Charlotte, 13. 

Living off the generosity of her father, who owns Africa’s biggest dental laboratory, Roumaissa splashes £300 to £400 a week on fine dining, and spends another £500 a month on makeup, hair and beauty treatments, and clothes. 

She also drives an Audi TT, priced at £31,000, courtesy of her father, and owns a £32,000 designer handbag, also gifted by her parent and uncle for her 18th birthday – which Neil observes ‘could pay half my mortgage.’

Teens and young adults on TikTok are scraping their teeth away with nail files to achieve a perfectly aligned smile, and dentists are panicking over the new trend.

In videos posted on the social media app, some of which have thousands of views, likes and comments, TikTokers admit the idea is a bad one before completing what dentists call irreversible damage.

The trend involves shaving away the enamel — the outermost layer of teeth — to fix ridged edges, uneven “buck” teeth and other imperfections.

Planet Fitness obtains ‘essential business’ classification, reopens ahead of other gyms | News

After obtaining certification as essential businesses, Planet Fitness franchises in Kern County have been allowed to open for indoor workouts, even as other gyms are restricted to outdoor activity only.

Kern County Public Health Services classified the local fitness centers as an “essential healthcare/public health service” after the gym chain joined the Medical Fitness Association, a North Carolina-based nonprofit that seeks to integrate medical practices into fitness facilities for better health outcomes.

“Our approach is we take anybody that comes in the door, whether you’re an absolute elite athlete or a grandma,” said association President Bob Boone. “Our goal is to optimize your well-being no matter what state you might be in.”

Members of the association are encouraged to follow procedures that transform gyms into part of a community’s overall health care network. Although fitness centers do not need to have all of the association’s guidelines in place to join,
