Matthew Leahy could be called a body mechanic—and not just because he works on Ironmen during their triathlon events. He's memorized the ways that the body's components can move, stretch, and strain, causing tension to accumulate in muscles. His massage treatments try to alleviate that tension with several modalities. From flowing Swedish kneads to the targeted pressure that addresses sports injuries, his approaches are customized to each client. He has also mastered ART, or active release techniques, a system of massage and specific movements that aims to restore tight, overworked tissues to their healthy state.
At Metro Eye Care, a staff of experts checks the ocular health of clients aged 5 and older and helps to improve vision with ideal sets of glasses, contacts, or shades. Comprehensive eye exams with the optometrist not only yield prescriptions, but also check for disorders, diseases, and the mythical apple of each patient's eye. After the proper prescription has been identified, a team member can help patrons to peruse the vast collection of designer eyewear from brands including bebe, BCGB, and Nike. Metro Eye Care fits these frames with lenses that range from basic plastic varieties to Gunnar Advanced Computer Eyewear. For a frame-free style, the staff also fits eyes with contact lenses.

Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing.

At its locations in Loveland and Denver, Tattoo Must Go's expert technicians erase unwelcome ink with a Q-switched laser, which sends nanosecond pulses of intense light to the treatment area. Patients go through a complimentary consultation before treatment begins, determining the number of sessions necessary depending on ink colors, skin tones, and how many Alfs are in the tattoo. During half-hour treatments, the laser breaks down particles of any color while minimally affecting the skin. A Zimmer Cryo 6 Chiller provides additional comfort during the process, keeping the treated area cool. Patients can return for their next treatment in as few as three weeks.
