At Wasatch Foot & Ankle Institute, a cadre of foot specialists keeps patients on their toes via a comprehensive approach to medical care. Each doctor draws upon years of experience in their respective fields—which range from ankle reconstruction to non-surgical fungus removal—to focus on individual issues. During many treatments, the staff uses a monitored dose of nitrous oxide to help patients relax, sparing them from having to squeeze a stress ball to milk the drops of nitrous oxide concentrated inside.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
The Pilates Body sets limbs to lengthening with multiple classes per week that test core strength and concentration in a open and modern space. Sample sessions of mat Pilates, designed to increase strength, flexibility, and tone, or take stretches to a heady new echelon with the thermostat cranked during hot Pilates. The swinging Zumba classes provide fat cells with Latin background tunes as they are danced into oblivion, and the men's conditioning class allows men and their hairy-chested mats to reap the benefits of Pilates in a testosterone-rich environment. The staff's six highly trained instructors provide the guidance needed to renovate soul digs from a tackily wallpapered waiting room to a suavely painted sanctuary. Both morning and evening classes are available, providing multiple opportunities to get the energized feeling only exercise and jet-powered clogs can provide. All mats and other equipment are provided, but reservations are required as class size is limited to 12–15 people.
