A common sight at boot camp is a red-faced instructor shouting intimidating commands to participants straining with pain. At Davis Training, the trainers aim to erase this stereotype by creating an encouraging and supportive environment in which they never force their members to do military-style drills. Each session is geared toward virtually any fitness level and is different from the previous, and this variety helps foster full-body conditioning instead of just building muscles in the arms, legs, or toes.
CrossFit remixes a long lineup of functional push, pull, and hurl movements that incorporate yoga, boot camp, cross fitness, and more. Kettlebells are an integral part of the routines, as they provide unmatched natural fitness via fluid, powerful, and nearly injury-proof techniques. Though the intensity is high, both men and women of all ages and fitness experience are welcome. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability for fitness buffs of all makes and models. Many CrossFitters find the discipline addictive because of the fast, demonstrable results achieved through hard work and external motivation. Side effects of CrossFit training may include: shearing apart newly tight-fitting clothing by simply breathing, and flying into the stratosphere with one push-up.

Although becoming a doctor is a good way to make any family proud, the family of Dr. Zhizhong Nan—of Nan's Acupuncture and Wellness Clinic—were especially delighted upon his graduation. That's because by going into acupuncture, Dr. Nan became the third generation of his family to practice this ancient art. Now, more than than 20 years later, he uses his experience in traditional Chinese medicine to heal patients for a range of maladies. Using tiny needles, he can harness the body's chi and natural energy to heal itself, whether he's calming down kids with ADHD or helping insomniacs get to sleep at night. His treatments can also be used for more debilitating illnesses, from pain to asthma to TMJ. Rather than just alleviating symptoms by prescribing numbing medication or giving patients more and more candy until they feel better, acupuncture helps Dr. Nan resolve the core issue behind illnesses.
As a naturopathic doctor, Tom Demaro combines natural treatments and advanced technology to spark dramatic change in the body. Infra-Slim may be the most notable result of this innovative approach: Demaro fused the idea of pressure therapy, which has long been used to help patients suffering from circulatory problems, with infrared heat, which natural healing experts often call on for its detoxifying powers. The treatment is based on the idea that when fat cells heat up, they expand; add pressure to the mix, and the cell walls will burst, flushing their contents out through the body's lymphatic system. Infra-Slim is said to trim up to five inches from the waistline in as little as three sessions, a claim the center backs up on its website.
