Set within a tranquil, nature-inspired spa setting, Grass Orchid harnesses the high-tech rejuvenating power of infrared light to fight the ravages of aging. LED light therapy bathes damaged skin in both visible and invisible wavelengths that are precisely calibrated to induce cellular collagen factories to ramp up production and promote elasticity. Inside a comfortable capsule similar to a tanning bed, LED lights stimulate the body's processes for fighting the effects of sun exposure, toxins, and bad paint jobs in soothing 15- to 20-minute sessions. Sun-damaged, wrinkled, oily, or acne-scarred epidermises can benefit from a catnap in the light of the bountiful beams, enabling faces to smile sans smile-lines and backs to shrug off the endless whining of problem pores.
Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
