Exercisers burn up to 600 calories during Jazzercise, Inc.’s 60-minute total-body workouts, which meld moves from diverse realms such as jazz dance, kickboxing, and yoga. Set to a medley of popular tunes, sessions are open to all skill levels and start off with a gentle warm-up before 30 minutes of cardio, strength training, and a closing stretching segment. The discontinuation of the Nobel Prize in Jazzercise ensures a noncompetitive class atmosphere, and whippersnappers aged 4–12 can get in on the fun during Juniors Jazzercise classes.
Under the watchful eye and deft hands of Dr. Jason Van Ness, the eponymous Van Ness Chiropractic's staff of doctors and licensed massage therapists aligns spines and soothes muscles to boost the holistic health and athletic prowess of their patients. The doctor's cocaptain, Dr. Jeff Parkin, infuses the practice with an enthusiasm gained by hard-won, firsthand experience with chiropractic care as a patient. As a child, Jeff’s immune system was as strong as a starving lion’s moral resolve. Drinking an entire bottle of Pepto-Bismol a week became normal. Years later, he decided to try chiropractic and fell in love instantly, saying, “All of my allergy, digestive problems, and infections were gone.”
Fitness 19 welcomes exercisers into its pristine workout facilities lined with Life Fitness cardio machines, free weights, and fully staffed childcare rooms. A personal trainer works with fitness seekers to create motivating custom workouts, helping members set goals and chase them down with the precision of a saint bernard leading a search-and-rescue mission in an inflatable-ball pit. Heart rates rise and calories evaporate during jogs on treadmills and pedaling sessions on stationary bikes. Dumbbells and barbells encourage lifting and curling, and Smith machines help bodies perform squats safely and effectively. Make muscles ripple with plate-loaded strength-training equipment, an eight-station crossover cable, or high-intensity deadlifts with a complimentary water bottle.
Dr. Younis’s chiropractic career was born from his fascination with the natural healing ability of the human body. Today as the owner of Lake Zurich Wellness Group, he draws upon 30 years of experience to help patients achieve healthy lifestyles through chiropractic care and muscle therapy. Dr. Younis and his staff can treat a range of injuries, from neck and back pain, to more serious chronic pains caused by work- or auto-related accidents. The facility boasts an on-site x-ray room for convenient glimpses into the inner workings of the skeletal system, as well as a therapy studio with an adjustment table, exercise balls, and ample space for exercising or practicing moonwalks.
Dr. Alma Lombardo believes that a trip to the dentist should be unintimidating and anxiety-free. To accomplish this, she adopts a compassionate attitude with patients of any age and she stocks her practice with cutting-edge medical technology. Digital x-rays give the practitioners a clearer look at a patients’ mouth, televisions in every room help patients relax, and the office’s computerized system allows the staff to keep detailed records without wasting paper or hand-chiseled stone tablets. In addition to the technology, Dr. Lombardo and her practitioners draw on their vast experience to provide comprehensive general as well as cosmetic dental care, preventing the spread of disease and keeping smiles bright.
