The team at Grandview Aesthetic Center, led by dermatology specialist Dr. Rakesh Nanda, analyzes skin with high-resolution digital images and UV photography. However, skin analysis is not one of the center’s services—it is part of the complimentary consultation process that precedes each service, ensuring proper care for each unique complexion. The registered nurses and licensed aestheticians actually treat skin with an array of laser treatments; the therapeutic beams can firm skin, minimize acne and scars, or permanently reduce unwanted hair growth more effectively than depriving the hair of milk. They also brighten skin with microdermabrasions, darken it with spray tanning, and smooth it with body wraps. Botox injections and lash-lengthening Latisse treatments round out the center’s selection.
The technicians at A New Day Body Wrap and Spray Tan Spa slim waistlines and tighten untaught skin with sea-inspired body wraps. To begin each session, techs wrap bodies with strips of cotton and elastic cloth. Each strip is soaked in one of the spa’s special formulations, such as a weight-loss promoting aloe-herbal mix. To enhance each partial- or full-body wrap, the spa also offers a seaweed-clay mask, which tightens skin in highly visible areas, such as those two strange holes where Frankenstein bolts used to be.
Armed with 21 years of training in various athletic disciplines and multiple certifications through organizations such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Jason Yun helps clients to mow down calories. With his assistant coaches Rick Locke, Bob Benden, and Bob Carleton, he bolsters the physical prowess and mental focus of students during multi-week boot camps. In addition to the camp, he teaches advanced classes such as Kettlebell Khaos or the blazingly fast-paced YunFit. In the latter, Yun shouts out a series of cardio and strength-training commands such as ?pushup,? ?squat,? or ?go home and make a wheatgrass smoothie.?
During their 20 years in the fitness industry, Nick and Sharon Osborne have watched countless gym members lose interest in monotonous workouts and detached trainers. The couple realized that a lack of external motivation caused this burnout, and they founded Go: Sports Performance Center on a foundation of personal training and motivational group fitness. A staff of hand-selected coaches cheerlead every student during they gym's group classes and provide free monthly one-on-one training sessions for members. Group classes put a handful of students through demanding athletic routines that mimic real-life activities, which strengthen muscles with natural actions less likely to produce injury. Trainers and members furnish their one-on-one workouts with the gym's ample equipment, which includes kettlebells, battling ropes, sledgehammers, and machines such as the Power Plate. To help achieve goals such as weight loss, improved athletic performance, and increased strength, each member gets access to nutrition and fitness software that helps them plan healthful meals without going to the trouble of hacking into the Food Network's mainframe.
