I disabled the majority of JavaScript options in the Extra tab of the theme and disabled the Layer and Flex sliders. I cleared cache on the server and ran your GTMetrix test again. Page size INCREASED by 250K, Speed Grade slightly worsened to 94%, although the page loads faster by a mere 0.5 seconds.

You might be interested in this example for reference. The grade speed is lower, at 90%, but note that a 12MB page with running video loads in just 3 seconds.

So practically, there is no improvement. Do you have other suggestions? Again, this is not only poor end user experience, but this is also bad for SEO.
