Housed inside a capacious 50,000-square-foot training facility, Xtreme Performance Center provides exercise equipment, a pool, a basketball court, and energetic group classes led by a knowledgeable staff. One-month memberships afford gym-goers access to muscle-nurturing weights and lung-stimulating cardio equipment, as well as entry to the 25-meter indoor pool, where three lanes let swimmers glide powerfully through the water without constant arguments about their water wings slapping a neighbor's floating easy chair. Alternatively, five fitness classes or all-inclusive three-month memberships let exercisers drop in to specialized co-ed classes for a mix of strength and conditioning workouts. Regardless of age, background, or number of blue ribbons from flexing competitions, muscle coaxers can punch their way through mixed-martial-arts courses, pummel bags in kickboxing classes, or power their way through intense boot camps.
Dr. Alexander Liu, an Ivy League–educated tooth tender with a background in oral surgery, helms the team of dental specialists at Otay Lakes Dental Group. The family-oriented office scouts mouths young and old for periodontal concerns and draws from a tool belt of advanced technological devices to boost smile health and aesthetics. The team uses digital x-rays to cut down on radiation exposure, intraoral cameras to diagnose hard-to-see issues, and electric hand pieces that remove decay faster than traditional methods or cease-and-desist notices. Dr. Liu offers options for dental concerns of all kinds, from teeth-whitening measures to root canals to dental implants, all of which occur in tidy treatment rooms.
Drawing from more than 25 years of experience working in the med-spa and cosmetic-surgery field, Kathleen Rocca harnesses her knowledge and skills as a clinical aesthetician at her own skincare and anti-aging haven: Eastlake Rejuvenation Center. Guests pass through a lushly landscaped patio area as they arrive for the noninvasive cosmetic treatments, including facials with red and blue LED light, body-contouring laser lipolysis sessions, or photofacials that use intense pulsed light to tighten lax skin loosened after one too many trips to the moon.
In addition to helping area residents look and feel better, Rocca stays involved with her community on a grander scale, sharing beauty advice on Fox 6 news and serving as the president of the Bonita Business & Professional Association.
Dr. Hector Gomez and his associates keep mouth healthy and looking good with their 80 years of combined experience. The dentists’ specializations include endodontics, oral surgery, periodontics, and orthodontics. Their routine checkups search teeth and gums for signs of disease, decay, and hidden sugar cubes. Dr. Gomez and his team also offer implants, IV sedation, conscience sedation, and pedodontics.
Dentists Jessamine Sunglao and Nelson Deleon create healthy, glowing smiles with general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry and thoughtful, personal treatment. The digital x-rays the doctors employ to detect any abnormalities use safer, less harmful rays than their standard counterparts. Painless anesthesia from Milestone can comfort patients who fear the needle. Email- and text-confirmed appointments help busy patients work dental care into their packed schedules. Both doctors tend to general checkups, dental exams, Zoom! teeth whitening, and root-canal therapy. Dr. Deleon also offers orthodontics, and gives patients the option to straighten teeth with ClearCorrect invisible aligners or the old fashioned way of using plaster casts.
