Real Body Boot Camp founder Bernadette Silva has always made time to work out. Even when while running her private psychology practice and raising three energetic kids, she developed her own high-octane workout regimen. With a blend of boxing, yoga, Pilates, and sports drills, participants burn fat and build lean, powerful muscles through fun exercises that fully engage the mind and body, unlike boring runs on the treadmill or the confusing twists and turns on stationary bikes. In addition to strengthening bodies with TRX, boot camps, yoga, and barre classes, clients build valuable self-defense skills through krav maga training under martial arts expert David Ordini.

With 20 years of experience in chiropractic care and physical therapy, Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Fano was well equipped to help patients when he opened Advanced Rehab & Wellness Center, P.C. in 2010. But beyond healing his paying customers, he was ready to help the community by offering free chair massages to help ease the tension levels of office dwellers throughout the area. Dr. Fano’s dedication to the overall health of his neighbors shows in all of his treatments, which he has curated to include only techniques that will improve a person’s quality of life. Though Dr. Fano specializes in spine-realigning chiropractic treatments, his staff also provides physical therapy to get clients back on their feet after accidents and acupuncture to open up energy meridians for a balanced, healthy body. They're also masters of a range of massage techniques, which help clients get some time in for stress relief without the hazards of replacing their office chair with an affection-starved grizzly bear.
A native of Northern Ireland, Fedelmia Mullan Davis started Irish dancing when she was five years old. With her graceful movements and a strong sense of rhythm, she went on to win three All-Ireland championships and five Ulster championships. Upon arrival in the U.S., Fedelmia and five other T.C.R.G.-certified instructors founded the Irish Dancing Teachers Association of North America in New York City. This organization blossomed to include more than 600 certified teachers and maintains ties to its parent body in Ireland. Fedelmia also founded the Davis Academy of Irish Dancing and has spent the past 45 years training students of all ages in the art of Irish dance. Over the years, her students—along with her daughters and grandchildren—have followed in her sprightly footsteps by competing at the championship level.

At Allwood Optical Boutique, licensed optician Donald Trischetta oversees an onsite optical lab that turns out lenses specialized for a wide range of tasks.

His lab is also equipped for emergency repairs of broken lenses, which it prioritizes with same-day service.
