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.
Led by certified and enthusiastic instructors, Hardbody Outdoor Fitness offers its adherents access to one-hour morning classes from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. at Meadowbrook Park in the spring and summer and in Inside Out Performance in the fall and winter. Throughout each boot-camp-style regimen, lethargic muscles are forged into lethal weapons with resistance training, core work, and optional bionic reconstructive surgery. The functional program utilizes stability balls, medicine balls, hula hoops, resistance bands, jump ropes, and other equipment to emphasize balance and stabilize neurotic musculature. Sessions are also designed to work for and with people from all walks of life, from marathon runners to school teachers training to defeat a cruel chalkboard in hand-to-hand combat. Choose the 5- or 10-day pass to sample training sessions, or pick the one-month membership to take part in up to 16 one-hour classes.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
Desai Dental Care's Dr. Chetna K. Desai touts more than 20 years of tooth-soothing experience, beautifying mouthscapes with advanced brightening technology. The in-office Power Bleach teeth whitening blasts away smile blemishes in about an hour, imbuing dull, stained, tie-dyed, or discolored chompers with an ivory gleam. Dentally adept incisor artists apply a protective gel or rubber shield to gums, and then slather tooth formations with a bleaching agent. Special light beams then bathe bicuspids, inspiring the bleach's peroxide to whiten teeth five to seven shades, cutting through discoloration caused by age, coffee, or tobacco products. Due to their impenetrable, half-robot nature, dental accessories, such as crowns, bridges, and fillings do not bleach.
Dr. Jeff Muneses, inspired by his personal success with chiropractic treatments, now works to help others suffering from health problems that range from ulcers and headaches to sports injuries and neck pain. During an initial consultation, patients outline their health history using words, Venn diagrams, or finger puppets before undergoing an examination. Exams, along with x-rays, help assess each patient’s current physical condition, making it easier for Dr. Jeff to develop effective treatment plans. Spinal adjustments correct vertebral subluxations, and therapeutic exercises, soft tissue work, cold-laser therapy, and electric stimulation aim to ease pain caused by working on your feet all day at a pretzel factory.
