At La Belle Fit, fitness classes, spa services, personal training, and nutritional counseling team up to lead patrons toward total-body wellness inside and out. Visitors can choose from more than 50 fitness classes at the gym's four locations each week, tackling sessions dedicated to dance, spin, barre, and active conditioning. Students bestride Star Trac Spinner stationary bikes in spin classes and line up at the ballet barre in Studio Barre, which combines elements of Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching to form a low-impact, high-intensity program. To singe calories and tone physiques sans dance moves, trainers lead sessions of step, kickboxing, and TRX suspension.
La Belle Fit complements their group fitness programs with one-on-one personal-training sessions and body-rejuvenating massage services helmed by a certified massage therapist. An on-site nutritionist helps patrons maximize the results of their workouts by recommending healthy grocery shopping lists free of bacon-stuffed twinkies deep fried in bacon-stuffed twinkie fat.
Author of The SuperLongevity Rx, Dr. Paul G. Grussenmeyer uses the latest technological advancements in a well-rounded approach to maintaining his patients' health and comfort. Dr. Grussenmeyer is one of the few dentists in the area to treat jaw-joint issues and upper-body pain, using methods such as intraoral appliances, myofascial-release techniques, and trigger-point therapy. He also harnesses cold-laser therapy to noninvasively treat tooth sensitivity, periodontal disease, and TMJ disorders. Instead of taking old-fashioned impressions with alginate or silly putty, Dr. Grussenmeyer creates digital impressions for restorations with the Cadent iTero 3-D system. Focusing on cultivating patient comfort, the caring doctor is able to use fewer shots and less anesthesia for soft- and hard-tissue procedures thanks to laser dentistry, for which he holds associate fellowship status and certification.
The Makeup Bar Salon may be named for its chair-lined countertops that brim with signature cosmetics, but its staff of stylists and aestheticians brings much more than just makeup artistry to the table. Supervised by Lisa Severino, a makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience, the salon’s many claims to fame include a seaweed facial that was a 2011 Pick by InStyle magazine and a blow-dry bar with a choice of three styling options: tousled, straight, or Louis XIV. Meanwhile, eyebrow specialists flaunt years of over-eye artistry in brow-shaping sessions that both correct past tweezing blunders and ensure flattering contours when brows grow out. Clients can put a bow on their spa and salon services with exclusive cosmetics, whether the salon’s own or the feng-shui-inspired Color Elements line designed by Severino herself.
As an Aveda concept salon and spa, Belliard's Hair Design Studio and Spa naturally augments its services with the wholesome, herbal products Aveda has become known for. Pairing these with a hodgepodge of techniques, the aestheticians pamper complexions during facials and body treatments, including steam baths fueled by minerals, sea salts, and fuming rubber ducks. Stationed across the spa's hardwood floors, hairstylists shape manes into fashionable 'dos, massage therapists dish out a repertoire of kneads, and nail technicians accent fingertips with OPI Gelcolor. A warm fireplace collaborates with subdued lighting to soothe clients sitting in sleek styling chairs.
A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue. Not all the staffs' attention is focused on the scalp, however—aestheticians deftly apply cosmetics before nights-on-the-town, perform rejuvenating facials, remove unwanted fuzz with wax, and shape cuticles during mani-pedis. Massage therapists, meanwhile, use swedish and deep tissue techniques to ease tension from the body, making clients appear more relaxed, approachable, and less likely to pop a neck vein.
Nestled among towering trees in a stone-flanked cottage, Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists of Cherry Hill highlights clients' inner beauty within a serene, homelike environment. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lyle M. Back calls on more than 20 years of experience as he polishes silhouettes with focused surgical procedures and in-office cosmetic services. Meanwhile, his veteran staff enhances appearances with a slew of nonsurgical treatments—including facials, massage, and waxing—that return bodies to the ravishing, youthful state they flaunted when first hatching from their eggs.
