CrossFit Blythewood and CrossFit Vista have joined forces to create Warrior Fitness. Warrior‘s trainers guide athletes through traditional CrossFit classes, which tackle a new Workout of the Day (WOD) every day. Exercises vary, though they often include moves such as weight lifting, running, rowing, and unconventional moves such as tire flipping. Warrior Fitness also conducts outdoor boot camps and special fitness classes for kids.
Simply Chiropractic's name doesn't mince words, and when it comes to promoting the benefits of chiropractic adjustments, neither does Dr. Johnathan Dabney. In an industry saturated with techniques of mixed effectiveness, Dr. J brings chiropractic back to its roots, administering tried-and-true spinal and joint adjustments designed to bolster the body's recovery mechanism. After he tracks down the source of discomfort via a thorough examination, he tailors gentle, hands-on pressure to each individual in order to nudge slipped vertebrae into healthier positions.
Dr. Manly Hutchinson has practiced obstetrics and gynecology for more than 30 years, making his mark as one of the pioneers of endoscopic surgery. He brings the same clinical rigor and professional tact to the practice of aesthetics and to the chore of making his bed in the morning. He's assisted by the staff of licensed aestheticians and registered nurses at the Hutchinson Center for Aesthetic Medicine. They include Angela Heaton, a licensed aesthetician with special interest in working with lasers, treating sun-damaged skin, removing tattoos, and performing a range of other treatments. Dr. Hutchinson turns his focus to minimally invasive techniques for smoothing and contouring the body. Aside from performing laser-assisted liposuction, he relies on laser technology to clear skin of wrinkles, unwanted hair, and superficial veins.
Even before he founded PowerFit Bootcamp, JR Spear always felt a calling to transform people into fitness machines. A fourth-degree black belt and studied martial artist, Spear spent years training future Marine Corps officers and Iraqi soldiers in self-defense and combat skills. Later, Spear taught his own MMA fitness and cardio-kickboxing classes, along with personal and group training sessions. At PowerFit Bootcamp, he and his staff of fitness instructors encourage each student to persevere by leading motivational and high-energy classes. At 12 indoor and outdoor locations, students undergo full-body workouts designed to jettison fat and tone muscle. Trainers welcome students of all stripes, giving them a period of time to complete each move, rather than a number of repetitions, encouraging each student to do as much as he or she can without feeling uncomfortable, overexerting, or resorting to time travel. Along the way, coaches track progress and motivate students by noting benchmarks during physical fitness tests on the first Monday and Tuesday of each month.
Stronghold Gym, a full-service climbing and training facility, helps budding rock-scalers hone their abilities on a 45-foot climbing tower and two onsite bouldering caves. Climbers can scamper up the walls like a man with incredibly long legs and rubber-cement hands with the help of friends or opt to drop by from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends when staff members are present to help with belaying. After ascending to the rocky heights, individuals can hit Stronghold's cardio and weight training equipment to continue their workouts post-climb. Yoga and fitness classes are also offered onsite in its two fitness studios.
Woolfson Eye Institute’s founder and medical director Dr. Jonathan Woolfson is a board-certified ophthalmic surgeon who has performed more than 70,000 laser vision-correction procedures. Such clinical experience has helped him earn the trust of other medical professionals; he has performed more than 300 surgeries on his fellow eye doctors and trained and certified more than 100 North American LASIK surgeons. He has also fine-tuned the eyesight of professional athletes, including Ovie Mughelli, Curtis Lofton, and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons.
Dr. Woolfson draws upon this extensive experience each time he customizes a laser procedure to his patients’ needs. He and his staff of doctors begin every treatment with in-depth consultations, where they determine the lasers, instruments, and novelty sound effects needed to successfully enhance eyesight. Once they’ve completed their procedures, they also offer eligible patients a Lifetime Assurance Plan, granting them free lifetime access to any fine-tuning surgeries.
Armed with more than 30 years in the tooth-treatment business, Palmetto Dental Services ensures healthy smiles with orthodontic, periodontal, and preventive dental services. The mouth maintenance begins with a complete scrubbing of the teeth, which removes caked-on plaque and fossilized cake frosting. Chompers are then inspected for wear and decay, along with an evaluation of the gums and surrounding bone for signs of periodontal disease. A set of x-rays caps off the inspection, peering deep into each tooth and below the gum line to find abscesses, bone loss, and nascent werewolf fangs.
