Max Muscle found its feet in 1990, when a group of athletes set out to build a brand of supplements that would effectively boost performance. From this concept grew a national sports-nutrition franchise, with a spectrum of supplements that help to nurture weight loss, maintain overall health, bolster muscle mass, and build endurance for marathon games of Go Fish.
At more than 100 locations across the United States and through an expansive online store, Max’s muscle mavens dispense multivitamins and protein shakes to both solo customers and affiliated personal trainers. The company places a special emphasis on women’s health and fitness, offering supplements specially tailored to women’s bodies. Max Muscle locations also aid customers in beginning their wellness journey through nutrition consultations, during which certified staff members draft nutrition plans customized to clients’ specific bodily needs and lifestyles.

A burbling waterfall wall and live palm fronds welcome clients to the earth-toned oasis of Elk Grove Massage29. Before beginning any session, the spa’s licensed therapists consult with clients to determine the best massage for their needs; it could be Swedish strokes to slake general stress or hot stones to melt away tension and determine which extremities are really just frozen burritos. The therapists also specialize in hot-pack massage, which uses grain-filled pouches that are heated to 170–180 degrees in order to release tension and increase flexibility.
