Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($4,000–$7,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.

After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn?t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.

Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition?s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.

In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10?14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5?21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.

It was the early 1980s, and after devoting about a decade of her life to fitness, Zayna Gold felt like her body was beaten up. Over time, she began noticing that her high-intensity gym workouts were hurting her body as much as—if not more than—they were helping it. Her husband, Clark, was having the same problem. An avid weightlifter and runner, he found the physical wear and tear was starting to prevent him from maintaining his physique. Zayna recalled teaching Pilates early on in her career, and how it worked her entire body with low-impact movements. She returned to the lengthening and strengthening classes, and by 1989, she and Clark founded Boston Body Pilates.

Their mat, equipment, and barre classes each call upon low-impact stretches and resistance moves that strengthen the core, elongate muscles, and promote overall muscle tone. Zayna's signature program, Brand New Body, challenges students to complete 30 Pilates or barre classes over 2–3 months; and upon completion, they may notice significant changes to their figure. The schedule also includes spinning classes, in diverse variations such as Zen Spin and Spin Bootcamp. In any class, Zayna and her large team of instructors inspire their students to establish a mind-body connection, helping them to feel both physically and mentally stronger, much like solving a crossword puzzle carved in stone.

To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.

The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.

As a ballroom-dance teacher, Monica had already mastered the dance floor when she found out she was pregnant. Though the news meant she had to give up some of her larger responsibilities, she kept teaching up until a week before she gave birth and came back just eight weeks after, driven by her love of dance.

But her months of working during pregnancy had taught her something: dancing was social and active, which was “keeping her sane.” Not only did it improve her mood, the stimulation of dancing helped keep her child, Oscar, calm both in the womb and in his carrier. Spurred by her new experiences, Monica founded Mama Ballroom to share the joy of dancing with other expecting and brand-new moms. Monica’s one-hour classes impart basic steps and patterns in a variety of ballroom styles, allowing moms of any experience level to move to the music and ensure their baby’s popularity at kindergarten cocktail hours. Mama Ballroom incorporates elements of classical, Latin, and tango to teach students to sway to the sultry sounds of Sinatra, salsa, and merengue.

William Gapinski understands fitness from every angle. He practiced martial arts, amongst other fitness disciplines, for 20 years, served in the US Marine Corps, and even overcame multiple skeletal injuries resulting from a major highway accident. Fueled by a desire to help others grow, heal, and overcome their obstacles the same way he did, William started Gold Medal CrossFit.

Following CrossFit's core principles, he and his staff of trainers follow a three-pronged approach to fitness: functionality intensity, and variation. To that end, they change up workout routines daily, blending functional exercises such as plyometric exercises, Olympic-style weightlifting, and gymnastics into an endless array of rigorous regimens. Community is is another element to their approach—they cultivate an atmosphere of support, camaraderie, and accountability so that all participants get the most from their time in the group sessions.

Since the exercises are difficult and require proper form, William and his crew recently launched a foundational skills training class to introduce the unique program to beginners. Unlike the regular group workouts of the day, they limit introductory lessons to only one student at a time. This ensures that the trainers can give each student ample personal attention, helping them master form and hone their grunting noises before joining the group class.
