Fit Body Boot Camp's 60-minute classes melt away the brain's useless boredom centers while facilitating speedy fitness results. Experienced instructors lead the group in a variety of ornery body challenges such as light running, resistance training, obstacle courses, core work, and team training exercises. Classes convene in a large, open studio that features big windows and a full array of fitness-attracting equipment, including jump ropes, free weights, and glowing bicep-whistles. Campers are encouraged to come to five days a week; the classes are offered Monday through Friday at 5:30 a.m., 6:45 a.m., 9:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m. (30-minute class), 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. For less extreme participants, thrice-weekly attendance may also yield a sizeable crop of results. Nutritional coaching is included in the program to improve at-home habits. Since Fit Body is an ongoing program, students can join classes at any time and at any personal fitness level. Bring a water bottle and reserve a spot ahead of time, as class sizes are limited to avoid overcrowding and back-to-chest sweat terrors.

Inside, a tall, lofted ceiling overlooks multiple pool tables, dartboards, and a dance floor that, during weekly events, becomes packed with swaying customers and antsy former boy-band members looking to strut their stuff one last time.
North Cypress Family Practice & Laser Center?s resident physician Dr. Amrit Thandi has experienced the evolution of lasers over the past decade by serving as a Luminary Advisor for Alma Lasers Inc.?the brand she still relies on to tighten slack skin, remove hair, and rejuvenate damaged complexions.
