Yoga instructor Derek Black applies a gentle hand during yoga classes, emphasizing breath control and calm minds over achieving wild feats of flexibility. Although he demonstrates this approach best with beginners, teaching them breathing fundamentals and introducing them to poses, he heads Ashtanga classes filled with every age and skill level of student.
At My Fit Core, owner Yvette Scamperino and her staff help clients lose weight during structured workouts in supportive small groups. A blend of cardio and resistance exercises comprise the studio’s semiprivate personal-training sessions as well as its intensive boot-camp classes. Specialized classes such as the 6 Pack Abs Camp round out the schedule, and to augment exercisers’ efforts, the staff offers nutritional advice and meal plans.
Many people associate chiropractic care with sore backs. Jeremy Bernath, a doctor of chiropractic, ends up working with a much broader group of patients, though. At HealthStrong Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, he oversees a team working to treat carpal tunnel, headaches, and a range of other issues. Because the back is connected to so many other systems, simple adjustments to the spine or changes in posture can help. The crew also relies on a range of high-tech equipment, x-ray machines, and computers that aren't grossed out by the human body.
Matteo Baker didn't put “220” in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be “second to none.” With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to acupuncture to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, karaoke cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy.
