Chef Chris Borden has sliced, diced, and sizzled up countless gourmet dishes for more than 17 years. A master of making fine food on a tight caloric budget, Borden's career spans work at establishments ranging from luxurious country clubs to diet-conscious healthcare facilities. At Fresh 'n Fit Cuisine, he's backed by a highly trained culinary team and a registered dietitian, all of whom work to make the finest meals no matter what the client's nutritional needs. Borden uses fresh ingredients, shying away from the frozen, dehydrated, or astronaut-friendly ones often used in other premade meals.
The menus rotate regularly, and meet the guidelines set by the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Cancer Society. After Chef Borden and his team prepare the dishes within a USDA-approved kitchen, they’ll prep them for pickup at one of Fresh ‘n Fit’s 79 area locations.
Though it has all the standard spa treatments—facials, body wraps, massages—The Spa at Wellness Works extends its attention beyond the reach of a typical day spa. With personal-training sessions and weight-loss services, the self-improvement haven welcomes clients to a complete wellness center dedicated to improving appearances, physical health, and mental telepathy. The center also hosts a variety of fitness and education events, including boot-camp sessions, cooking classes, and wellness seminars, to teach participants skills that they can apply to their daily lives.
Like a gym, Meant Spa & Lounge wants to help clients slim down. But unlike a gym, which is full of clattering machines, shouting trainers, and people hiding inside lockers, Meant takes a more gentle, laid-back approach to weight loss. Physician-supervised staff administer PhotoSlim Lipo treatments, which rely on a FDA-approved noninvasive red light to shrink fat cells and combat cellulite, lie back and relax while a technician holds the red light over problem areas. Clients can even sip gourmet tea to help them unwind before each treatment. The treatments themselves are non-invasive, and no downtime is required.
When it's not slimming bodies, Meant's high-intensity red light provides nonsurgical face lifts. It boosts collagen production and tightens skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and slimmer jaw lines and necks.
All treatments last one hour and are administered by aestheticians who customize procedures to suit the particular skin type and belly button concavity of each client. During a celestial facial, clients are pampered with dual cleansing, steam therapy, gentle extraction, mask, and massage. The treatment balances skin tone, sloughs off dead cells, and purges pores of grease, grime, and misplaced roller-skates. The mineral salt scrub excavates deep beneath dermal strata to reveal smooth, glowing skin. Sink into a plush, heated bed to be slathered with mineral salt and then wiped clean with steam towels and kitten tongues. The treatment concludes with a warm shower, light massage, and rich body cream. Sea mud wraps detoxify, exfoliate, and nourish with seaweed, botanicals, and plant enzymes. Sealed in a warm, relaxing wrap of mineral clay, patients will feel like Cleopatra being fit for her custom-built sarcophagus. Those opting for a Swedish massage will be gently stroked with kneading and effleurage (gliding pressure applied by thumb pad or fingertip). Totally relax while circulation is stimulated and stress icicles melt into pristine mountain fresh water and edelweiss.
Atlanta Wellness and Weight Loss’s team of doctors watches over patients as they slim down, ensuring safe transformations during weight loss. Their plans focus on nutrition rather than intensive exercise; shots of B12 and all-natural Vital Nutrients supplements enhance overall health, and a custom nutrition plan saves patients the hassle of interrogating frozen dinners. Their wellness services extend beyond weight loss, encompassing chiropractic adjustments and other physical therapy.
There’s a photoshoot at the start and finish of each four-week fitness boot-camps at South West Atlanta Training Fitness. The before-and-after snapshot works as a document of proof that shows just how hard exerciser has worked in that timeframe to lose pounds and tone muscle. Each week, certified trainer Rashad McDade leads intense workouts that focus on high-intensity interval training. He splits students into different groups based on skill level, which ensures beginners, experts, and robocops all remain appropriately challenged. These group workouts form the core for South West Atlanta Training Fitness, but Mr. McDade also works with clients during personal training and sports conditioning sessions.
