Clients in search of nonsurgical solutions to their skincare needs can hop into Cavi Spa Skin & Body Center’s Visia complexion analysis, which peers into the topical and subsurface layers of the skin, exposing UV damage and pore depth, before serving up a personalized skin-youthifying blueprint. A course of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or injectables can leave complexions radiating with reclaimed vigor, or teeth-whitening procedures can remove stains and add subtle sparkle to smiles. Clients looking for more dramatic results can explore the doctor’s surgical options, which can transform torsos, limbs, and faces into stunningly youthful, and often undetectably natural, versions of their former selves.

Open 24 hours a day, XSport Fitness gilds pallid patrons with sunless Mystic Tan at the Falls Church location and VersaSpa systems at the Alexandria location as well as regularly re-lamped UV beds. With Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tan sessions, unstained patrons stand in private booths while a moisturizing mist sweeps over the skin, bestowing the body with the healthy golden glow of a Spanish doubloon polished up for a night on the town. In about two minutes, airbrushes apply a natural tone that can be customized according to body size, skin type, and desired color. The formula imbues epidermises with bronze, line-free tans without the hassle of spending all summer loitering around sandcastle hard-hat zones.
Further Fitness trainers Jamie Dreyer and Maribel Torres have made it their mission to "dispel . . . myths and old-wives tales" about fitness. Inspired by their backgrounds in youth sports, exercise-science studies, and a chance encounter with fitness godfather Jack LaLanne, they have created an effective, challenging, and exciting program focused on the fundamentals of boosting metabolisms and muscle mass. Their stripped-down studio builds bodies with simple tools, such as kettlebells, battling ropes, and sandbags. To stimulate the cardiovascular system, Jamie and Maribel might have students haul a weight sled and pull in equal amounts of physiology and anatomy knowledge. Sessions are held in semiprivate and group settings, and an athletic-strength program devotes itself exclusively to training high-school-level athletes and any toddlers that can run a decent 40-yard dash or live in the requisite angst in which high schoolers often live.
D-Fine Fitness's facility is abuzz with motion as fitness expert Craig Hatchett and his staff of 14 certified trainers captain fitness classes and personal-training sessions, helping patrons to bolster their physical and mental well-being. Beyond rooms of cardio and weight-training machines lie private training rooms, where instructors elucidate weight-loss and toning strategies during one-on-one sessions. The trainers offer specialized sessions for teens, during which they learn to reduce body fat and build enough muscle to finally defeat their principals in games of hopscotch.
For group sweat sessions, the instructors lead classes including Pilates, Pilates for Golf, Zumba, and kickboxing. The center's massage therapists enhance athletic performance and flexibility through restorative massage, and the registered dietitian designs programs to help patrons to make healthy eating choices and learn to trap and butcher their own asparagus.
Unlike fashion trends, one-hit-wonders, and tattoos that say “I voted for Nixon,” flat stomachs and well-defined muscles never go out of style. Fueled by Joseph Pilates's core-focused philosophy and signature workout regimen, the certified instructors at A Body in Balance Pilates Studio strive to keep abs and limbs toned, leading group classes, private sessions within a mirrored studio stocked with row after row of reformer machines and other equipment, and preparing new instructors for BASI Pilates certification. When not helping beginner- and advanced-level students increase their muscle definition and balance, the staff spends its time and money donating to national and local organizations such as Three Square, Positively Kids, Woman’s Club of Summerlin and local schools.
The Center Street Club offers boutique-style private training and relaxation in an uncrowded urban oasis. Like reality-TV contestants, the club's attentive trainers come out of their shell and start to reveal exercise secrets during one-on-one personal training sessions. Private Pilates gets solo stretchers reaching for the remote without leaving the sofa, and stressed souls slough off tension with a Swedish massage. When the 50 minutes in heaven is complete, mettle-testers can roam over 10,000 square feet of amenities and slick workout equipment, growing guns with free weights, raising heart rates with the StairMaster, and drafting home-sauna blueprints on the fogged-up walls of the steam room.
