ACE-certified personal trainer. Nutritionist. Monica Moore clearly has the credentials to help clients move weight, but she also has the passion for helping others achieve their goals. At Body by Monica, LLC, she meets with clients, either in person or online via Skype, to build individualized meal and exercise plans.

The staff at Arsenault Family Chiropractic Centers harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over target areas, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The gentle, noninvasive treatment requires little to no recovery time.
Cheryl Taylor, head trainer and owner of Incite Fitness, challenges her clients to charge through local streets or push through grueling interval workouts, depending on the class. At Urban Run sessions, attendees tackle the former, zooming down 2- to 5-mile paths that include pit stops where they can work out. In contrast, at women’s boot-camp classes, quick spurts of energy power participants through intervals of cardio, resistance training, and plyometrics.
The highly trained staff at HLC Med Advanced Laser and Skin Care harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify. In the guffawing face of father time, technicians roll up their sleeves and unholster their lasers, blasting away acne scarring, rosacea, or hyperpigmentation with the Radiancy SpectraClear system. A chilled-tip laser uproots party-crashing hair from any skin type, and a Q-switched KTP YAG laser sends sun spots packing. Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
The dedicated technicians of Spa Medique rejuvenate and restore waning exteriors to a beautiful, youthful state with anti-aging therapies, hair-removal treatments, and pampering services. Trained aestheticians cater to each client by customizing renewing treatments, from FDA-approved Pelleve sessions, which tighten skin with radio-frequency waves, to microdermabrasion facials that exfoliate complexions until they're as smooth as a freshly shaved bowling ball. Natural White Spa cosmetic teeth-whitening treatments brighten smiles, Swedish massages soothe muscles, and IPL hair removal leaves woman- and manscapes silky. Spa Medique’s weight-loss specialists draw from more than 15 years in the slenderizing game as they tailor programs to help clients lose fat, gain muscle, and achieve the metabolism and body weight of a hummingbird.
