Kevin Allen earned his personal training certification in 1989, but he didn’t stop there. Instead, he layered more expertise and experience onto his resume with every passing year, finally founding Namaste Personal Training to share his wealth of fitness knowledge with as many clients as possible. Now the gym has been named Oakland magazine's best gym in the East Bay in 2012 and 2013, a title Allen and his team of four trainers uphold by addressing patrons’ individual fitness goals in one-on-one personal training sessions, or obliterating bucket loads of calories in group fitness classes. They also tailor introductory fitness courses exclusively to beginners, lowering class size, shortening duration, and eliminating exercises that involve flaming jump ropes.
Certified members of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the husband-and-wife team of James D. and Lynn C. Swearingen have been tapping into patients' subconscious since 2006. The duo delves into clients’ minds to discover causes of anxiety, low self-esteem, and emotional trauma before taking steps toward behavioral change. Their treatments also help guests quit smoking, navigate 12-step counseling, or overcome their fear of taking tests while submerged in a shark tank. During each personalized appointment, the Swearingens train patients in self-hypnosis, which requires a minimum of four 50- to 90-minute sessions to master.

Chiropractors at Specific Chiropractic Centers coast to coast get their clients walking tall with advanced spine-straightening technology.

The goal is to perform as few adjustments as possible both to respect clients' schedules and to carve out more time for practitioners to work on their puppeteer careers.
