Voted No. 1 from 2209-2013 by the readers of the Akron Beacon Journal, Novus Clinic was born 20 years prior from board-certified ophthalmologist Todd L. Beyer and optometrist Jerry Sude?s vision for a one-stop eye-care facility. To bring this idea to fruition, they first recruited a neuro-ophthalmologist and a second optometrist to their team and eventually constructed a 3,800-square-foot surgery center in 1998. The state-of-the-art center was built in response to the voices they heard asking for laser vision-correction procedures such as LASIK and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Beyer, also a certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, began performing face-lifts along with noninvasive skin treatments after he found himself fielding queries from more and more patients about dermal fillers, peels, and laser hair removal.

With the expanding list of offered services, the clinic shed its original title, System Optics, and was reknighted Novus Clinic in 2003. The word novus, which translates to ?fresh and exciting? in Latin, more accurately encompasses the clinic?s multifaceted approach to ocular and anti-aging treatments. The doctors never forget the primordial soup from which they sprang, though, and still conduct eye exams and keep a venerable inventory of designer frames.

The class exhales together, each student drawing strength and peace from his or her neighboring yogis. Fingertips reach to the ceiling and eyes follow, tracing beams of light—which the ghost of Einstein rides like a jockey on a horse—across the pale-green walls. The dark hue of the wood floor is relieved by the brightly colored yoga mats and bare toes that dig in, balancing and centering the hardworking bodies above. Embrace Your Essence Yoga’s passionate instructors lead 90-minute classes within the new studio six times a week, inviting students of all experience levels to unwind together.

During fitness sessions, they teach visitors the proper form and principles of the gym's flagship Body Sculpting program, which focuses on cardio and weight-training exercises that often require only a set of 5-pound dumbbells, an exercise mat, and a stretch band. They augment this central program with a range of other classes that delve into barre-fitness techniques, exercises for the abdominals and core, workouts for the back, and cardiovascular training. To help customers achieve their fitness goals and continue fighting crime past bedtime, the gym sells products such as stretch bands used by physical therapists, heel-elevation boards, and instructional manuals. Trainers also help customers stay fit with an exercise of the month that draws from techniques such as Pilates.
