Physicians Weight Loss Centers of America, Inc. peppers the nation, doling out slim-down tips honed during the course of three decades in business. Each center staffs a physician, who, in tandem with a team of skilled counselors, selects one of six weight-loss and lifestyle programs to guide each client toward his or her desired results. The center’s sextet of plans are tailored to those who prefer not to exercise, those who travel often, those who cook at home, and those who cook in nonfunctional stage kitchens. Patients chat with their counselors often, soaking up the tips the staffers learn from continual training programs. Clients are encouraged to build a bond with their counselor, as camaraderie not only eases the process, but also improves one’s chances of finding a lifelong three-legged-race partner.
Body Rock 2.0 is a 45-minute coed total-body workout led by former army fitness instructor Shane Frazier. Focusing on core strength and body sculpting, this workout tones and sculpts the body into a marble masterpiece, which makes changing socks difficult. Boot-campers have the benefits of group fitness (motivation, camaraderie) with the advantages of expert instructor training (one-on-one guidance, a steady stream of firm handshakes) and an interactive nutrition plan (dietary tips, advice about which roots are edible). Classes run Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 5:15 a.m., 8:15 a.m., and 5:15 p.m. (no evening class on Fridays), and Groupon buyers may attend Thursday night’s Punch & Crunch class at 5:30 p.m. Learn more about Body Rock 2.0 group fitness online.
At Lipo Laser USA, the expert technicians trim fat from hard-to-tone areas without a single incision.

To empower guests to make lasting transformations, ReBorn Wellness also offers a full gym with a cardio, weight training, and circuit room, and massages that help dissolve tension after long day of weight lifting or saying goodbye to toxins.
At Medical Weight Loss, LLC, staff members help customers shed pounds rapidly and maintain their target weight with the assistance of appetite suppressants, injections, and practical-eating guidelines. To determine the most effective approach, first appointments include a battery of tests such as blood chemistry, body-fat analysis, and an EKG.
Together with a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical staff, the board-certified physicians at Complete Clinics design weight-loss programs based on patients' body chemistry and specific goals. They use health markers such as resting metabolic rate, insulin resistance, and cholesterol and blood-glucose levels to customize their programs. A personalized, calorically nonrestrictive diet helps patrons achieve sustainable results without counting calories, purchasing costly specialized foods, or measuring out portions with a microscope. The clinical crew can bolster weight-loss efforts with doctor-supervised HCG injections, B12 injections, and prescription medications. This hands-on clinical approach has garnered attention from numerous local media outlets, including NBC and CBS News.
To further individualize treatment, the doctor and medical staff offer specialty programs for brides-to-be, new moms, and people with diabetes or polycystic ovarian syndrome. They help clients meet health and wellness goals with innovative equipment such as Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning technology, a pressure-changing device designed to simulate interval resistance training.
