After three decades of holistic-therapy research, Brenda “Bebe” Ball founded Rejuvenation Station to share her belief in a natural path to wellness. The center’s noninvasive treatments range from infrared body wraps, which fight cellulite and burn calories while also improving skin, to ion detox footbaths, which draw out toxins and boost energy. Bebe has also brought Japanese technologies to Rejuvenation Station in the form of an electro reflex energizer, which stimulates acupressure points, and an e-power machine, whose high-frequency energy works to accelerate healing and aid mental focus.
With three locations in the Valley area, Roanoke/Botetourt Athletic Clubs offer extensive facilities, a focus on member convenience, and a variety of group-exercise classes a week. (Class descriptions and schedules here.) Membership to any of the clubs allows you to use all three facilities. The family membership includes the buyer, his or her spouse, and any children younger than 21 who live at home. Both membership options offer unlimited workouts at any of the locations, allowing patrons to keep their muscles nervous and on edge by constantly varying the time, frequency, and location of exercise. Fitness seekers at the Roanoke Athletic Club and Botetourt Athletic Club can make use of cardio theaters, gymnasiums, steam rooms, professional-grade racquetball courts, and the track. Indoor and outdoor pools allow aquaphiles to immerse themselves in the object of their love year-round, and pool-goers at the Botetourt location can combine the joy of swimming with low-friction delight in the form of a 23-foot water slide. Complimentary child-care is also available at the Roanoke and Botetourt locations. Members with little time can participate in lightning workout rounds at the smaller, more centrally located Zoom express fitness center in downtown Roanoke (however, your Groupon cannot be initially redeemed at this location).
Owner James Rosar of Cyclo-Ward Bicycle Repair draws upon years of bicycle familiarity as a veteran long-distance cyclist and professional mechanic every time he nurses wheels back to health. Recruit his tour de expertise for a basic tune-up and listen to the bike purr as he adjusts major bearings, derailleurs, and cable tension, followed by an alignment of brakes, handlebars, and seat. After a light wheel truing, Rosar then gives each wheeled stallion a functional test ride to make sure all parts are operating in the spirit of peace and harmony. In addition to all procedures included with the basic tune-up, the complete bicycle overhaul tacks on removal, cleaning, and fresh coal for the drive train, full disassembly and greasing of the major bearings, and a frame alignment check. Though recommendations for replacement parts may be made, this Groupon only covers labor.
Both the Lynchburg and Roanoke locations have year round batting cages, 36 holes of championship miniature golf, the best gameroom around with the largest prize center in the area. The Lynchburg facility has go-karts and bumper boats.
