At Achieve Medical Weight Loss’s myriad locations, physicians and nutritional counselors promote lasting lifestyle changes. Rather than relying on fad diets or strapping tiny treadmills to their clients’ feet, their simple program espouses a combination of scientific analysis, exercise, and nutrition. Lab work and body-composition analyses allow the staff to personalize programs to each individual’s unique needs. Then, through exercise and dietary plans, the team helps instill good habits that stick. Should clients require an additional boost, appetite suppressants and vitamin injections can help kick-start their weight-loss efforts.
Even though board-qualified orthodontist Dr. Tom Lowder has beautified smiles for nearly four decades, he doesn’t like to rely on braces to do the straightening. He encourages straight smiles by guiding growth during patients’ formative years, using muscle-trainer appliances and muscle-function exercises in lieu of braces, which can only correct bites retroactively. When braces are necessary, he keeps treatments inconspicuous with Invisalign clear braces, which nudge teeth into position while remaining virtually invisible.
At Westside MMA, professional mixed-martial-arts instructors tutor students in the calorie-destroying, stress-relieving methods of attack and defense. Having trained everyone from first-timers to internationally competitive pros, the Westside MMA staff is fully equipped to teach pupils the fundamentals of kickboxing. Participants will relish a month of fun, challenging workouts while getting their gloves on proper punch and kick techniques, blocking skills, and footwork drills designed to make full-contact ballroom dancing less intimidating. In addition to forging a stronger core and increasing flexibility in its practitioners, kickboxing can help build confidence, and as a practical self-defense method, it has proved to be 100% more effective than carrying around a balloon with a scary face drawn on it.
Dustin Williams is a bit old fashioned, at least when it comes to fitness. As the owner and head personal trainer at Precision Fitness, he doesn't buy into fancy equipment, miracle weight-loss drugs, or fad diets. Instead, he focuses on the time-tested methods of hard work, motivation, and accountability. Dustin leads 30-minute group personal-training classes, which banish fat while toning physiques, and abs, butt, and shoulder classes, which build strength and reduce pain. In addition, he's a National Strength and Conditioning Association?certified strength and conditioning specialist and uses that expertise to train those preparing for bodybuilding and figure competitions.
The science behind the impressive results of Fabulous Tranzformations is complex and nuanced, but its aim is simple: enhance a naturally occurring metabolic process. Dr. Delilah Parker uses the Yolo Curve and Lapex Lipo Laser target fat cells with noninvasive laser energy, causing them to release water, fatty acids, and glycerol, which results in smaller fat cells and inch loss.
Fat Loss & Laser Clinic's technicians use machines that bottle up heat, light, and sound to reshape clients' bodies. They wield Lipo-Ex instruments to nonsurgically melt away fat with waves of heat. They zap the skin with precision lasers that remove hair or diminish the appearance of sun damage and wrinkles. They even have lasers that remove tattoos by blasting color off the skin.
