Servando Dominguez and his team of certified trainers hold indoor and outdoor workout routines seven days a week. During each four-part session, trainers spend less than an hour guiding students through cardio exercises while thoroughly explaining each movement to prevent injuries. In addition, Servando's team provides three different nutrition plans and online access to Fitness Magazine. They also encourage students to persevere by way of emails, text messages, and smoke signals. Pep talks escalate to tangible incentives with Servando's body-fat contest, which rewards faithful participants with prizes such as cash, photo shoots, and massages. Servando's confidence in his program is reflected in his satisfaction guarantee—should participants follow the program for 30 days and not see results, they will receive a full refund.
Normally, a hot-stone massage marks itself among a massage studio's most luxurious modalities, during which smooth, heated river rocks sit atop sore spots, radiating warmth into the muscles to ease out knots and stress. At stoneSmassage therapy, the nationally board-certified therapists incorporate hot stones into most of their treatments. During Swedish massages, the therapists administer the same soothing, medium-pressure strokes that define the modality, only now they work the strokes around the heated rocks that complement the service. But the staff doesn't rely on rocks alone to vanquish tension; all-natural and organic lotions and microfiber sheets augment soothing massage experiences.

Best Face and Body aims to be a respite from the hectic pace of modern living. Inside the warmly lit spa, professionals pamper clients with soothing massage services, healing aesthetic treatments, and their own line of proprietary skincare products. Founder Bonnie Best developed the B.Best line to reinforce the impact of her spa treatments with a skincare regimen clients could follow at home. As she carefully calibrated each formula, she eschewed ingredients such as mineral oil, alcohol, or perfume, which she knew from experience can dehydrate skin and clog pores. Instead, her products incorporate state-of-the-art substances recommended by skincare manufacturers and chemists to help hydrate, protect, and nourish skin.
Michael Silverman along with his staff of seven massage therapists believe in massage's ability to heal as well as relax. Joined by his wife Leilani Lee and a staff of compassionate therapists, they work to follow through on the studio's goal to heal and relax by soothing aches with assorted bodywork modalities. These include gentle Swedish strokes, firm deep-tissue pressure, or a custom combination massage. Each massage takes place in a private treatment room, allowing the therapist to fully concentrate on seeking out knots without the distraction of ambient noise. These modalities work in conjunction with massage oils and pain-relief creams, both of which can encourage the body's natural healing processes.
