Fit4Lincoln packs its schedule with small-group exercise classes that burn calories and build muscle. A martial-arts specialist from the U.S. Marines leads the 45-minute kickboxing sessions, which impart self-defense strategies while inducing sweat with punching, kicking, and timed multiplication-table drills. Yoga classes demonstrate poses that cultivate strength and flexibility, and the Butts & Guts session shrinks and solidifies abdomens and glutes with squats, lunges, and plyometrics.
Instead of handing clients lightning rods, Fit4Lincoln raises energy levels and torches fat by equipping clients with nutrition tips. During one-on-one meetings, the studio’s personal trainers devise specific workout goals and an action plan for achieving them.

The amiable employees at Proven Nutrition, a family-owned-and-operated establishment, dole out all-natural multivitamins, energy boosters, and appetite suppressants in a banquet of FDA–approved dietary supplements. The Acai 1000 ($39.99) pairs acai extract and antioxidants, which together naturally suppress appetites and boost energy for bench-pressing manatees. Clients can heighten endurance and build lean muscle with the Amp'D dietary supplement ($34.99). Omega Essentials, a partnership between fish oil and omega acids ($34.99), increases blood circulation and helps clients achieve regular sleeping patterns more effectively than a bed of puppies. Though today's Groupon is only valid for Proven Nutrition's own line of products, the shop's shelves are also lined with well-known brands such as Dymatize, BPI, and Scivation.
A certified, professional photographer, Jaime Incontro harnesses more than 10 years of experience when capturing sexy shots of female clientele clad in garter belts, corsets, and baby-doll dresses. The shutterbug works one on one with clients during studio and on-location sessions to ensure that they feel completely comfortable and empowered throughout the shoot. One week after shoots, subjects are welcomed back to feast their eyes on the resulting photos, which can be retouched in an effort to soften or smooth out any physical flaws. Pleasing pictures can be reproduced in a plentitude of products, including prints and calendars, and make great holiday gifts. Images can also be stored inside black leather-bound books, CDs, or shoeboxes provided by the client.
