Eyes & Smiles Optometry’s international team of accomplished eye-care professionals unites patients with perfectly matched prescription lenses and contacts. The staffers help patients find stylish frames from brands such as Gucci, Armani, and Banana Republic, and they can communicate with patients in Spanish, Tagalog, German, Farsi, and interpretive dance. When they’re not checking ocular health, the accomplished physicians Dr. Nazak Mozaffarieh and Dr. Bernard Hale, who were raised in Austria and England, respectively, spend their free time volunteering for vision nonprofits and independently raising two sets of twins.
At Pinole Chiropractic, Dr. Jennifer Hammett vanquishes chronic and acute pain from patients not only with traditional spinal adjustments and physiotherapy techniques, but with modern tools as well. Cold-laser therapy, for example, sends light into injured tissue to help stimulate healing and reduce pain; this, combined with chiropractic care, helps promote overall well-being by restoring healthy muscle and nerve function. But whether traditional or new, all of her treatments have something in common: they don't require any medication or surgery. Instead, Dr. Hammett triggers the body's own ability to self-heal.

Certified Zumba instructor Cassie Venegas wants to share the joy she’s had of getting fit through dancing since she found Zumba. Zumba—a fusion of fast-paced aerobic dance moves and upbeat Latin rhythms—is a dance fitness class that often seems more like a party than another day at the gym. The combination of hypnotic beats and fun, simple-to-follow movements makes Zumba a good class for beginners and seasoned exercisers alike.

Lesha Kastl, operator and co-owner of Hercules CrossFit, is also a certified trainer who lifts at an Olympic level. But she favors movement-based workouts including Muay Thai boxing, Pilates, and runway-overthrowing Ms. Fitness competitions. Bryan Kastl, co-owner of Hercules CrossFit, muscled his way to certifications in Olympic lifting in 2009. But he has studied fitness and physiology since the early ?90s, when he became a certified personal trainer through Hayward State University. Both Lesha and Bryan have studied massage therapy to supplement their expertise of internal musculature. Bryan even sought the guidance of a chiropractor to learn injury-specific techniques such as active-release technique.
The Kastls area also both Level 1 CrossFit trainers with certifications in CrossFit mobility and gymnastics, which they rely on during CrossFit classes comprised of nonspecialized, functional exercises. Weightlifting and gymnastic-ring work, for example, are selected because they can be easily adjusted according to fitness level and directly improve mundane tasks such as hauling groceries or catching trapeze swings to work. As a result, the workouts are remarkably inclusive, and the Kastls have guided energetic kids and those struggling with physical ailments toward strength and cardiovascular health. Lesha's background in sports nutrition enables her to design dietary programs that boost performance and bolster the effects of exercise.:m]]
