Temples often stand as monuments, long-lasting reminders of the incredible dedication it took to erect them. At Get a Better Body Fitness, this is what they mean when they say, “Your body is your temple.” There, trainer Lamont Nash and his fellow instructors help students build and sculpt their bodies with a training method inspired by Jack LaLanne. Their ideology focuses on daily body-weight exercises such as pushups and crunches coupled with a nutritious diet.
Training unfolds across multiple facilities, including a colorful gym—called “the playground”—that houses ample punching bags, and a small field of turf embedded in the middle of the room. The center also runs a pro shop with fitness apparel and workout flash cards that can be used to construct new regimens at home or study for phys-ed finals that require students to carve the answers into the tops of their desks.
Inside George Brown Fitness, ISSA-certified personal trainer Scott Sherman leads his students toward their fitness goals with little more than some sets of straps and a will to succeed. An independent trainer, Scott often meets clients in-studio or outdoors in the fresh air, under the nonjudgmental sun, where he helps people of all sorts get in shape, from teens and new moms to conditioned athletes looking to progress in their sport. Sessions vary, but Scott often calls upon exercises such as heavy-rope training, sit-ups and body-weight moves, and TRX suspension training to mold his clients’ physiques.

Rejuvenations Day Spa Salon’s professional technicians restore full-body beauty with spa and salon services in a Spanish-style space studded with rounded archways, wrought-iron fixtures, and whitewashed walls. As clients nestle between the crisp sheets of a massage bed, therapists temper crabby muscles with one of four modalities, from the gentle effleurage of the Swedish technique to the nose-tickling scents of aromatherapy massage.
After being diagnosed with juvenile arthritis at the age of 6, FitnessSocial's Dina Juve spent more than 15 years in a sedentary lifestyle. At 21, she decided to take charge of her health and began to educate herself on the principles of a healthy lifestyle.
