Developed by Jaime Brenkus, the star of the 8 Minute Abs workout videos, Slim & Fit's weight-loss program has earned acclaim for balancing nutritional, behavioral, and fitness strategies designed to help participants lose up to 30 pounds. At 12 weekly sessions, a Slim Coach records progress at the weigh-in and guides the client through a personalized plan for preparing six healthy meals a day at home. Participants record successes or their new abs' first words to them in their daily-victory journal, gathering encouragement from Jaime Brenkus's e-book, Get Lean in 15.
Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. With a passion for wellness burnished by her experiences in that job, she earned her teacher’s license to show young people how to preempt diet-caused illness. That endeavor eventually led her to create Target Metabolism, a health-and-wellness company that champions weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric tracking. Beth and her team of registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and they delve into thinking past carbohydrates and focusing on a “calories in vs. calories out” metric. This caloric count is based on the client's specific metabolism, rather than the average metabolism of the client's age, weight, height, and gender group. In addition to dieticians, the staff includes massage therapists that offer specific treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process. Modalities include hot stone and aromatherapy.
HotBox Pizza’s cooks adorn three varieties of hand-tossed dough canvases with six savory sauces, cheeses, and 26 toppings to create a menu of dine-in, takeout, and delivery pies. The signature HotBox combines double spicy pepperoni and banana peppers, and Big Al’s Fredo fights off pernicious poultry cravings with a combination of chicken, roma tomatoes, fresh spinach, and banana peppers. Aspiring pizza architects can blueprint their own pies by laying down traditional, thin, or multigrain foundations and selecting from six varieties of sauce-carpeting. Doughy disks simmer with mozzarella, ricotta, Wisconsin cheddar, or fontina cheeses to hold down up to four toppings such as pepperoni and artichoke hearts. Circle-eaters can also save room in their knapsacks or hollow shoe-heels for fresh salad and bundles of breadsticks that come with nacho-cheese, pizza, ranch, or garlic sauce, and wash down stubborn bites with refreshing slurps of soda.
When Dr. Brian Green isn't treating patients at Back To Health, he can often be found in a courtroom testifying as an expert witness for auto accidents, as well as reconstructing the accidents based on the injuries they've caused. Green has developed these powers of deduction over the 20 years he's worked as a chiropractor. Spinal decompression and massage therapy are two techniques that he employs on those suffering from accident injuries, as well as on those suffering from sports injuries and work-related injuries. Yet, he provides more than pain-relief services, offering nutrition consultations and spot fat-reduction treatments that use a noninvasive slimming Lipolaser to sculpt arms, bellies, thighs, or egos with concentrated beams of light.
Based on the concept of balancing bodies with all-natural supplements and organic food, Nature's Pharm opened its first health-centric emporium in Fishers 13 years ago. It has since built up a tiny fiefdom of three stores across central Indiana, where a bounty of pastas, sauces, condiments, and gluten-free snacks keeps pantries wholesomely stocked. Curated shelves of carefully formulated amino acids, omega-3 supplements, and vitamins equip systems with vital nutrients. These herbal capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids infuse bodies with the power of nature without the need for planting a whole garden or licking a tree.
Front Porch Wellness Spa welcomes guests into their tranquil space with practiced hands and cozy massage tables. The center’s massage therapists offer Swedish and hot-stone massages for those seeking a more relaxing treatment, and therapeutic and deep-tissue massages for clients looking for relief from pain, soreness, or tension. Self-care and personal improvement is also fostered by way of the quantum biofeedback program, a holistic and natural treatment designed to heal the mind and body, and the energy-balancing work of cranial sacral therapy.
The experienced staff at Pearl MediSpa strives to reveal the natural beauty of every client with advanced aesthetic and body treatments from massage therapy to custom weight-loss programs. During consultations, staffers focused on revitalizing forms and reducing stress discuss clients’ aesthetic and wellness goals before commencing with custom services. Private treatment rooms cradle techs defuzzing bodies of unwanted hair with the Candela laser system, which aims to clear small body areas of hair in just four sessions. Licensed aestheticians pamper pores during facials with organic Luzern Laboratories skincare products. On the salon floor, stylists waltz up to cutting chairs armed with products from brands such as Australia's Kevin Murphy and Italy's Alfaparf Milano. Coppola keratin-complex hair-straightening treatments tame tresses and Hairdreams extensions add length. Those looking for a day of indulgence can snatch up a spa package, most of which include a session in the spa’s infrared sauna, which melts away stress the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart.
