The staff at Route 2 Wellness doesn't feel it's enough to simply treat your body—they want to help you understand how it works and why––sometimes––it doesn't. Dr. Casey Walker and his team specialize in chiropractic care, using it to treat anything from headaches to scoliosis, dispensing client education along the way so that people can learn to manage their pain and discomfort.
And by adjusting spines, Dr. Walker feels he's not just diminishing physical strain, but also opening up a main channel that allows energy to flow throughout the body. His team supports this holistic mindset with additional services, such as massage therapy and nutritional guidance for specific ailments. Those needing more serious care can also take advantage of physical-therapy sessions, as well as blood testing for early detection of various diseases or just to be sure your veins aren't empty.
Inspiration Fitness's owner and published author, Angela Ramos, hurtles clients toward their fitness goals in camps, classes, and workshops throughout the week. The fitness guru, one of the only trainers in the area certified in Russian kettlebell, transforms viscous cores into torsos of molded steel, always employing an eye for safety that she plucked from certifications by the International Sports Sciences Association and Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology Institute. Whether working one on one with clients or leading group sessions, she leans on a rotating roster of high-intensity exercises to promote weight loss, tone muscle, and give patrons the body they want without having to raid a wax museum.
Certified personal trainers at dlux Training flex their mental muscles to devise one-on-one workout programs that maximize results, economize time, and protect joints and muscles from injury. Each 20-minute workout combines slow cadences with a high-intensity range of strength-training exercises to deliver results regardless of one’s age, fitness level, or sports-team preference. Trainers design each exercise to pose a deep challenge to the body’s muscles, forcing them to shake off their somnolence and add kindling to the steadily growing muscle fire.
At Lipo Laser, physician and surgeon Dr. Nicolas Sanez performs noninvasive, nonsurgical laser treatments as an alternative to liposuction. He employs the i-Lipo Ultra system, a low-level laser device that addresses specific areas of stubborn fat and cellulite. The system leaves skin feeling smooth thanks to a combination of infrared rays, vacuum massage, and voiceover narration by Al Green, and is often used to contour trouble spots that have not responded to other weight-loss methods.
Designed in 1960 by John Ellis, the Tuckaway Golf Club course is located 40 miles from downtown and features 6,225 yards of greens, fairways, and sand traps. Though only one par 5 exists on the front nine, the back nine challenges players to make up for lost scoring opportunities with three par 5s and cups not covered with cellophane. Gently sloping fairways bob and weave through beautifully forested acreage, bending around majestic pines and stately oak trees and opening up onto small greens. Prior to tee times, players can practice their hacks on the driving range's 20 grass tees or work on greenside feel at the chipping and pitching green.
