Voted 2011's #1 Fitness Center by Suburban Focus, Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center’s 90,000-square-foot workout compound facilitates user-friendly body sculpting through its vast array of fitness and recreation equipment. Calibrated to absorb the pressure from running, walking, and galloping astride stick horses, the cushioned indoor track supports moving feet with a stress-free surface. Demonstrate a synchronized-swimming act in one of three 25-yard pools, or take on a revivifying blast of vaporized water in the sauna and steam room. Patrons can build biceps and tone tensors with machine-bound and free weights or stack barbells until the pile resembles their favorite president. Flanked by a squadron of rowing machines and stationary bikes, a floor stocked with ellipticals, stair steppers, and treadmills keeps heart rates pumped.

Oak Hill founder and certified yoga instructor Kris Shields has been balancing out-of-whack energies and adding lean muscle to bodies for over three decades. Not one to rest on her rich legacy, she retains the hunger for knowledge, regularly attending yoga conferences, workshops, and readings of the great masters’ diaries to add new information to her vast yogic library. This dedication to craft shows during the intimate classes held within her earth-toned studio. By keeping things small and focused, Kris ensures that each student receives her individual attention, helping her modify poses for beginners and intensify postures for advanced students. As large volumes of natural light illuminate the expansive wood floor and vaulted ceilings of the practice space, Kris teaches students to connect their minds and bodies through breathing and the postures being performed.
Bob Miller has kept men, women, and children off the ropes for more than 25 years. As a certified U.S. amateur-boxing Level II coach and professional trainer, he's armed men and women with confidence and competence to jab, bob, and weave into professional boxing careers. Bob continues to focus his pugilistic pedagogy on the nitty-gritty of footwork, conditioning, and practice lessons of aspiring boxers of all skill levels. The boxing gym sports boxing rings, heavy and speed bags, and an avalanche of tools to keep warriors light on their feet and free from the wrath of inflatable, bottom-heavy clowns. After sparring, kickboxing, or jujitsuing with one of the coaches during any number of cardio-blasting classes, students can ratchet down adrenaline levels by taking a relaxing shower in the locker rooms with free towel service.

After the session concludes, its memory remains in video form on a DVD, still images on a CD-ROM, and on glossy prints.
