After a car accident in 2009, Stephanie Lakritz needed regular chiropractic care for her neck and back––and her sessions doubled as introductory classes on the body’s inner workings. Fascinated, she went to school to become a licensed massage therapist. Nowadays, she tends to her clients' physiques with a choice of three massage styles, or a custom mix of all three. Her gentle Swedish strokes, for example, relax stressed muscles; her neuromuscular therapy sessions, meanwhile, dissolve pain by focusing pressure on the body’s scattering of trigger points.

Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution—an organic plant- and mineral-based gel—to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen-peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from the highway overpasses of their smiles. To continue the process, patients can also take home a personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.

Though Doctor of Chiropractic Mike Krebill’s corrective exercises, chiropractic adjustments, and cold-laser treatments help alleviate achy backs and joints, he doesn’t stop there. He also searches out the underlying causes of pain to prevent future discomfort. His spinal and postural screenings root out hidden problems, and nutrition counseling teaches patients about proper dieting and how many times each morsel of food should be chewed.

Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary based on location.

Baby Boot Camp Colorado Springs’s owner and trainer, Alexandra, attended pregnancy boot-camp after the birth of her first daughter and found the workouts so effective that she decided to open her own branch of the business. In her classes, moms push their babies around in strollers as part of the routine, which relies heavily on strength training moves. Baby Boot Camp’s founder, Kristen Horler, designed the boot-camp-type workouts as a way for new moms to regain their pre-baby bodies in a supportive, women’s only environment using strength training and cardio.
