The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.

As a former personal trainer and fitness model, Jillian Panzella knows what it takes to shed pounds, especially since she fought her own battle against weight-loss. After having a child, Jillian gained 50 pounds, but she managed to shed the extra weight in just 12 weeks by following her own transformation plan, which she now shares with others at Jillian Panzella Nutrition. Her plan takes a holistic approach to nutrition and wellness, focusing on making lifestyle changes such as eating nutrient-rich foods, exercising regularly, and reducing stress, which can lead to emotional eating.

Final Round Boxing and Fitness’s Olympic-sized boxing ring trembles with the stomping of feet as veteran fighters circle one another, each seeking the split second opening that will lead them to victory. Ringside coaches and instructors shout advice, assailing the combatants with tips and tricks until they’re seasoned enough to take on a real fight. The gym has produced more than one champion, earning such titles as the New Breed Fighter’s middleweight champion or Gold’s Gym Strongman Competitions strongest heavyweight.
But the boxing ring only accounts for a small portion of the 16,000 square feet of workout space. The rest houses all of the machines, free weights, and kettlebells required to condition athletes. Brightly lit, hardwood classrooms provide a venue for less combatively themed classes, such as Zumba dance or extreme chess, in which players must complete a whole game by dead lifting actual knights in full armor.
