Motivating, highly trained staff and spacious facilities complement Charter Fitness's battalion of cardio machines and strength-training equipment. Huge flat-screen TVs motivate gym-goers as they lift weights, stationary bikes, and their reflections in large mirrors.

After workouts, private showers or public water fountains sluice away sweat.
By sharing duties between two locations, Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Centers’ chiropractors, Eric Miller, John W. Revello, are able to work double-time on fostering healthy bodies and minds. Thanks to advanced equipment and tried-and-true chiropractic techniques, the duo is able to reduce stress on each client’s nervous system, which allows the body to naturally heal from within and, in turn, avoid the use of medications, surgery, or back-up bodies. During their first visit, patients can ask if they need chiropractic services; if so, the staff can create a personalized chiropractic game plan that can include regular adjustments, acupressure massage, and rehabilitation from auto accidents and other injuries.
The quartet of dental professionals at American Dental Associates, Ltd. unite a skill set that ranges from general oral care to specializations in endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. Each member of the team brings their own unique personality and approach to their profession, though they share a philosophy of patient education and communication. Before undergoing such dental treatments as implants, oral surgery, or teeth whitening, each client works one-on-one with their doctor to devise a treatment plan that addresses their current dental condition and previous life as a shark.
ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.
