Brad Pugh has followed a healthy diet and exercise plan his whole life?until a few years ago, that is. Frustrated by the time and energy commitment, he decided to take a break from working out, which led to three years of inactivity and 30 extra pounds. As he huffed and puffed his way back to fitness, he resolved to use this experience as an opportunity to help others get back into shape. In 2000, Brad founded Shaping U Personal Fitness, a gym specializes in small-group exercise programs.

A nationally certified personal trainer, Brad earned local renown when he was named the city?s runner-up personal trainer by Birmingham Magazine. Six days a week, he runs indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes as well as personal-training sessions available on a one-on-one or semiprivate basis. Brad helps his clients modify unhealthy eating habits as well by designing meals based on the 14-day detox plan. Healthy meals centering around lean cuts of meat and high-nutrient vegetables are prepared by a chef and delivered to the home.

What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.

In her early twenties, Denise Wheeler was injured in a car accident. Daily headaches and neck pain served as a constant reminder of the incident. The pain left her unable to concentrate on her college work, so she sought medical assistance from doctors and therapists. Nothing worked for her until she found a chiropractor, whose careful adjustments relieved her of pain and changed the course of her life. So whole was her recovery that it inspired her to become a chiropractor as well, and after many years of schooling, she opened Pelham Family Chiropractic.

Doctor of Chiropractic Wheeler addresses each patient’s issues on a case-by-case basis, examining medical history and symptoms and perusing x-rays before conducting her own orthopedic exams. Based on her findings, she provides patients with a clear diagnosis and recommends a course of treatment, which can consist of adjustments to correct subluxations or interventions to coax the hipbone and thighbone to just get along.

It's clear that Orthodontics South PC is unique as soon as patients enter the office. A curved line of treatment chairs snakes around the windowed perimeter of the lobby, affording each guest his or her own scenic view. Wood floors, glossy tabletops, and earth tones cultivate a calmly contemporary feel. And most importantly, there's Dr. Brandon Boggan, who helps addresses oral issues, straightens teeth, and make smiles shine brighter than a lightbulb winning a spelling bee.
