Behind every talented musician lies the massage therapist who keeps him or her calm and relaxed before each night’s show. Licensed massage therapist Heather Chaney has lent her therapeutic touch to the tours of musicians such as Britney Spears, Kenny Chesney, and Blink 182. At SoBRO Bodyworks, Heather customizes each treatment to the needs of her client by integrating the smooth, gliding movements of Swedish massage with the manual muscle therapy of deep tissue treatments. Treatments can also integrate soothing essential oils made from herbs, fruits, and daffodils that Toby Keith kisses each night before he goes out onstage.
After four years spent playing football at the University of Illinois, and three years in the Canadian league, Morris Virgil circled back around to become a fitness coach. ?Each client is a direct reflection of me,? he says. ?Not in their physique, but in form, effort level, and dedication.?
He springboards off that philosophy during his 45-minute sports-inspired workouts, challenging patrons through functional training methods designed to improve overall health rather than just build washboard vanity abs or butter-churn biceps. Each workout divides time equally between cardiovascular routines, strength-training that leverages body weight, and muscle-sculpting exercises with free weights. The focus of each session alternates by the day of the week, so students can arrive daily for an all-around fit-?em-up routine or drop in on specified slots to focus on slimming down, toning muscles, or building strength.
