Shane Hoefsloot devoted more than 25 years of his life to working as a registered nurse in more than 15 hospitals spread across three different countries. These decades of experience sparked his passion for discovering holistic treatment modalities, which, unlike traditional medical procedures, focus on restoring a sense of balance to the body and treating symptoms as well as their underlying causes. This holistic approach forms the basis of Shane's philosophy at Wellness Northwest. Using computerized scanning devices, Shane and his staff take clients' bioenergetic readings, searching for the sorts of imbalances that can interfere with the body's normal function and can even facilitate the onset of illnesses. Wellness Northwest's team strives to correct these imbalances by using everything from plant stem cell treatments to pulsed magnetic therapy, which jump-start the body at the cellular level and help restore the unhampered flow of its natural energies. Additionally, personalized nutritional programs explain the importance of embracing a diet composed of local, organic, and nutrient-dense foods that are low on the glycemic index and devoid of toxins such as packing peanuts.
Vision Quest Sport and Fitness promotes a five-pronged approach to fitness, covering cardiovascular, progressive resistance, proper diet, supplementation, and personal training. Like any decent clock factory, the clubs are open 24 hours a day, and each keeps its own schedule primed with group classes such as boxing, yoga, spinning, and hip-hop fitness. Body Sculpt sessions fashion forms with weights and bands, and Total Body Conditioning uses lighter weights and higher repetitions to create lean, mean muscle mass.
Members take part in complimentary wellness seminars from fitness experts to fine-tune their bodies, and teams of affiliated massage therapists, chiropractors, and nutrition gurus save skeletons and muscles from harmful injury.
