Body by Zerona's staff has performed more than 15,000 successful Zerona procedures, helping clients achieve their ideal figures with the FDA-approved technology. The device’s noninvasive lasers disrupt fat cells’ membranes, causing them to release their contents and shrink. This can result in 3.5 or more lost inches.
At PeakFast Fitness & Sports Training, experienced coaches whip exercisers into tiptop shape with functional fitness training and a hearty helping of encouragement. Well-versed in disciplines such as physiology and kinesiology, the coaches draw upon scientific research to help their charges reach their fitness goals. Powered by kettlebells, resistance bands, bodyweight exercises, and teamwork, boot camps and other group fitness classes revolve around everyday motions such as pushing, pulling, and rotating to help students thrive in their everyday lives. Their personal-training sessions are tailored to meet specific goals, from losing weight to running a marathon to hitting more homeruns on the hockey rink. The one-on-one sessions include a nutrition assessment to enhance the custom workouts, which can be designed to boost the metabolism, strengthen the muscles, or rehabilitate an injury.
The doctors at NKY Weight Loss, a nutrition-based weight-loss facility owned and operated by physicians, help clients slim down with custom weight-loss programs. After listening carefully to each patient’s goals and health histories, doctors create custom nutrition plans that increase protein intake and limit carb intake. They also suggest exercise programs to build fat-fighting muscle without having to bench-press the living room sofa. Additionally, doctors may prescribe appetite suppressants and recommend natural supplements in order to facilitate weight loss.:
LipoLaser Cincinnati’s FDA-approved cold-laser technology slims physiques without surgery or post-treatment downtime. The treatments contour areas unresponsive to dieting and exercise by draining their fat cells, rather than destroying them. A full protocol of 6–12 treatments—or a modified set, depending on the patient's needs—can smooth away cellulite and slim the body's circumference, much like slipping out of the inner tube you’ve worn since birth.

Nutrition coach Lori Haddle is very aware of how uncomfortable someone who is overweight can feel. As a child, she battled with body-image issues and struggled with her weight for years.
She made the decision to improve her life after having her first child, but it wasn't until 10 years later—when she started working with a health coach—that she finally figured out how her body responded to certain foods and diets. From that moment on, everything changed. She was able to make informed, guided decisions about health and nutrition, and was ultimately able to drop the weight, boost her energy, and even stop taking her cholesterol and acid-reflux medications.
To help others make the same changes that she did, Lori became a health and lifestyle coach. She follows the principles of bio-individuality—which teach that no one diet works for everyone—and she creates personal wellness plans that are as individually tailored as a tattoo listing the names of all your former teachers. Lori offers a variety of services for families, teens, and adults.
