Since its humble beginnings in 1935 as a small health-food store that specialized in yogurt, GNC has evolved into the world's largest specialty retailer of nutritional products. The chain's more than 4,800 retail locations throughout the country stock numerous vitamins and supplements, all of which meet the company's strict standards for truthful labeling, ingredient safety, and product potency. They carry supplements that aid in sports nutrition, protein intake, diet, digestion, and beauty. Equally as dedicated to customers' shopping experiences as it is to product quality, the company created GNC University, an online learning platform, to help staff members bone up on nutrition and fitness knowledge. The knowledgeable sales associates field questions about everything from weight-management plans to stacking supplements for optimum earlobe strength. GNC Ankeny is located in front of Super Target.
GNC's opulent aisles display a wide variety of vitamin and mineral and herbal supplements, as well as sports nutrition, diet, energy, bodycare, and other health products. The Mega Men Sport multivitamin ($19.99 for 90 caplets) supports muscle recovery and energy levels while aiding speedy male metabolisms without dangling steaks in front of their treadmills. Fuel feats of female strength with the Women's Ultra Mega Active multivitamin ($19.99 for 90 caplets), ideal for vigorous women. Two pounds of Pro Performance 100% whey protein ($35.99) distract taste buds with the flavor of chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry while smuggling 20 grams of high-quality protein into the body in each scoop. Promote healthy bones with a calcium supplement, such as coral calcium, sustainably harvested from the Okinawan Sea to provide a healthy 2-to-1 ratio of calcium and magnesium.
At locations across the country, the technicians of Lipo Laser Centers of America rely on advanced technology to produce the beautyifying results of surgery, only without the scalpels. Using a combination of suction, laser energy, and cooling techniques, their FDA-approved Cynosure TriActive machines can eliminate cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, while also massaging and soothing muscles. When paired with 15- to 20-minute vibration plate sessions, their low-level lipo-laser devices can help bodies shed fat and inches. In fact, after only two lipo-laser sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
Owner and licensed massage therapist Tawnia Leslie and her team of relaxation specialists gently cocoon clients in one-hour body wraps. Rejuvenate skin with a seaweed or mud wrap, which aim to absorb excess oils, toxins, and miniscule packing peanuts from flesh while exfoliating the skin and improving epidermal circulation. The weight-loss wrap boosts metabolism and blood circulation while knocking out muscle cramps and spasms. As clients emerge from their weight-loss cocoons as slender butterflies, fat cells and toxins are released and escape on hoverboards made of sweat.
