At North Ogden Chiropractic, Drs. Brian Lundell and John Tanner look beyond symptoms for underlying causes of headaches and other ailments. They can rectify chronic pain from sports, auto, and on-the-job injuries. Their drug-free techniques ameliorate joint pain and sore backs with gentle adjustments, and the team of massage therapists further eases tense muscles with therapeutic strokes. The versatile doctors also treat toddlers, helping them overcome injuries and growing pains and study for med-school exams only 25 years away.
The Pilates Body sets limbs to lengthening with multiple classes per week that test core strength and concentration in a open and modern space. Sample sessions of mat Pilates, designed to increase strength, flexibility, and tone, or take stretches to a heady new echelon with the thermostat cranked during hot Pilates. The swinging Zumba classes provide fat cells with Latin background tunes as they are danced into oblivion, and the men's conditioning class allows men and their hairy-chested mats to reap the benefits of Pilates in a testosterone-rich environment. The staff's six highly trained instructors provide the guidance needed to renovate soul digs from a tackily wallpapered waiting room to a suavely painted sanctuary. Both morning and evening classes are available, providing multiple opportunities to get the energized feeling only exercise and jet-powered clogs can provide. All mats and other equipment are provided, but reservations are required as class size is limited to 12–15 people.
At Jim McLean Golf School, all students have an impressive audience: an experienced teacher, and the mountains on the horizon. The school offers group and private lessons on its driving range, chipping green, putting green, and nine-hole course. As clients work on perfecting their swing, JC golf-swing analysis software helps chart weak points and suggest solutions, and the staff doles out personalized pointers on everything from form to what putter would best fit your body. Some packages even bundle classes with lunch and time on the nearby 18-hole Red Ledges course. During the winter, lessons can relocate to an indoor facility in Park City, where a simulator recreates the course experience on an enormous screen.
The Thinique Medical Weight Loss program combines nutrition and fitness into a comprehensive physician-supervised weight-loss regimen. Not a one-size-fits-all routine, the program can be customized for men and women or people with diabetes, based on the results of a series of health exams. The weight-loss plans detail nutrition and exercise routines, and track patrons' results thanks to BMI measurements and body-fat analysis.
Youthful Image Medical Spa is located within the Ogden Women's Clinic, and the staff treats each aesthetic procedure with the care and professionalism due a medical procedure. The attentive aestheticians are supervised by onsite physicians as they perform traditional spa treatments alongside technologically enhanced beauty services. Before a 30-minute spa facial, an aesthetician carefully analyzes the client's skin type to craft a facial protocol that addresses individual beauty concerns such as dry skin, acne, or the fine lines that result from wearing clothespins as accessories. For more intensive treatment, clients can choose one of five medical-grade chemical peels, each of which exfoliates faces with a mix of acidic agents calibrated to treat conditions including acne, fine lines, and sun spots. The technicians harness the multitasking power of concentrated light during laser treatments including spider-vein removal, hair reduction, and photofacials. During each noninvasive procedure, the technician guides a laser beam across the skin to obliterate unwanted veins, spots, and hair without the downtime or pain of surgery.
