The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.
Certified trainers mix and match weight training, core strengthening, metabolic conditioning, interval training, and kettlebell exercises to maximize the benefits of each workout at Solution Fitness. Personal-training sessions focus on one person’s specific fitness goals, while adult and youth small-group sessions provide a supportive environment. The experts also offer nutritional coaching to aid in weight loss and healthier eating with sample meal plans.
The meaning behind the name of Niyama Yoga Studio is twofold. Founder Nicole Zornitzer wanted to pay homage to yama studios in Maryland, where she completed her training with renowned yoga guru Diane Finlayson. But the deeper significance of the Sanskrit word, which translates to "observance," involves the way individuals conduct themselves on a personal level, and how their behavior affects others. Nicole not only wishes to introduce people to the many benefits of yoga, which can include decreased blood pressure, improved range of motion, and the ability to nimbly slice a bundt cake without removing it from the back of the refrigerator, but also aims to enhance clients' mind-body connection and self-awareness. Nicole shares her knowledge as a certified children’s yoga instructor (CCYT) and certified prenatal yoga instructor (CPYT), and directs a teacher-training program in which the majority of her current staff completed their yoga education. She has also worked with professional athletes and is the official yoga instructor for Livingston Public Schools. In addition to a schedule of private and group yoga classes, the studio offers yoga-therapy sessions that include a body-type analysis and chakra work. The instructors customize each class to meet the needs of the students in attendance, using music that swells from soothingly calm to lively and energetic. The studio features a mural painted by local artist and class participant Ilene Skara.
UFC Gym is not a standard fitness center playing dress-up as a boxing studio—its pugilists hit away at 150-pound punching bags while wearing 16-ounce gloves and bobbing and weaving on high-impact floors, and don't have to share space with dance-aerobics classes—but neither is it the dank boxing gym of yesteryear.
Alongside the high-quality boxing equipment in the brightly lit gym are free weights and cardio and strength machines to mold a well-rounded fighter. In addition to boxing, trainers, most of whom have amateur or professional fighting experience, teach muay thai kickboxing, mixed martial arts, kids' self-defense classes, and personal training.
A new mom, Lisa Druxman was determined to continue exercising despite the demands of motherhood. Her solution: make pushing her son's stroller part of the workout. More new moms soon joined her, following Lisa's routine of stroller pushing, cardio, and strength exercises that required only a resistance band. Her idea continued blossoming, and today, more than 300 Stroller Strides franchisees lead classes in 43 states.
