Born from the passion and ability of world champion kickboxer Khunpon Dechkampu, Bangkok Boxing Fitness challenges newcomers and veterans alike to enter the rough-and-tumble world of muay thai, otherwise known as the science of eight limbs. Harnessing the power of a fighter’s elbows, knees, hands, and feet, the martial-arts style is a favorite among MMA fighters. Bangkok Boxing Fitness' instructors fully embrace the style, and some are quite decorated, in addition to possessing extensive mixed martial arts fighting experience. Beyond fitness classes, they also lead beginner-friendly sessions that cover MMA techniques.
Welcoming pure fitness-seekers and fighters alike, they've created a lineup of fitness Thai kickboxing and boot-camp classes that focus more on fitness than combat, unlike full-contact stationary cycling.
Self-defense classes for kids and adults are the focus for this martial arts academy, in both group and private settings. During HapKiDo classes?a derivative of classic karate?black-belt instructors Maurice Murphy and R.J. LoPresti lead children through combat techniques that are designed to boost confidence, improve focus, and avoid the high price of bodyguards. Adult training also incorporates meditation and philosophy. The staff offers up nutrition tips throughout class, and are available for one-on-one consultations.
At Golightly Fit, what many might consider the bleak expanse of a warehouse shines as a beacon of hope for struggling exercisers. Here, trainers urge clients toward their fitness goals––whether they be to lose weight, bounce back from pregnancy, or improve their sports performance––with compact boot-camp and personal-training sessions that jump-start metabolisms and process calories efficiently. They also provide complimentary 30-minute assessments to help clients pin down their fitness goals and outline a plan for achieving them.
If practice makes perfect, then Suddenly Slimmer may have created the perfect body wrap. Suddenly Slimmer has performed more than 30,000 of the inch-reducing treatments. Owner Julie Tracey first decided to open her own business after body wraps changed her life by helping her drop four dress sizes. Today, Suddenly Slimmer wages a war on toxins, inches, and cellulite with the crown jewel of the business—a vast array of all natural, non-dehydrating, mineral body wraps.
Powered by the Victorian Morton Process, the different wraps purport to permanently slim thighs, tummies, and chubby earlobes. Some of them are designed to whittle down waist lines or smooth cellulite, but clients can opt for the whole shebang and jump straight to the Supreme Wrap. So confident is Suddenly Slimmer in this top-shelf palliative, they guarantee clients will lose between 14 and 30 inches or they'll just give the next one away for free. No matter the wrap, Suddenly Slimmer looks out for their clients' safety by using only food grade ingredients in each of their mineral- and nutrient-infused wraps.
The clinicians and dietitians at WeightLoss MD, helmed by medical director Dr. John Ouderkirk, tip the scales in dieters' favor by employing lab test results and custom, one-on-one advice. Their client base is 85% composed of women, so they understand the unique weight-loss challenges posed to women, but they are just as skilled at helping men ditch unhealthy belly fat. While not included with vitamin-B-complex injections, lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants can bolster calorie burning and control, and the meal plans are tailored to fit each participant's lifestyle, tastes, and mouth size.
