Strive 4 Strength is designed to emulate the comfort of at-home workouts with toiletries, a steam room, towels, and no daunting crowds. In the boutique, the staff responsible for personal training and fitness classes works to set every visitor at ease. Drumrolls of feet on the floor drift from boot-camp classes, which get hearts thundering with squats, shoulder presses, and jumping jacks. Vinyasa yoga, on the other hand, teaches slow, breath-paired postures designed to bolster flexibility and relaxation. In cardio rooms, iPod-compatible treadmills and elliptical units whirr, tracking speed, distance, and how many lyrics to ?Eye of the Tiger? you know. Expresso bikes pit exercisers against online opponents, and free weights build dense knots of muscle with a clattering din.
Dr. Charles Goldsmith was a successful OB/GYN. His practice was thriving, but his patients weren't. Each of them was worried about weight loss and attempting their own home-brewed ideas of how to drop those last few pounds. Rather than see his patients rely on misinformation, Dr. Goldsmith, soon to become widely known as Dr. G, created his four-pronged approach to weight loss.
Targeting appetite, metabolism, diet, and habits, Dr. G's physician-supervised plan works to not only change people's consumption, but change their lifestyles. From a five-day cleanse that evicts toxins from the body to a physician-supervised program including dietary supplements, Dr. G keeps his clients' systems humming like tuneful supersonic jets. His additional cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and Revitalash, help to ensure clients' exteriors are as pampered as their interiors.
Dermatologist Dr. Jeffrey R. LaDuca and the team at Reflections strive to ensure their clients have all the facts about their cosmetic services. To that end, the beauty specialists offer free consultations to educate and enlighten those interested in injectable, chemical, and laser-driven procedures. Their expertise helps people choose the most suitable way to fight signs of aging on the face or cellulite on the body, and to address medical conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, or human scales. The clinic's skincare boutique is stocked with pharmaceutical-grade products such as SkinCeuticals serums and lotions, along with mechanized at-home cleansing systems.
In a tranquil spa space, Saggio Spa's aestheticians and massage therapists alleviate stresses stored throughout the body with a range of traditional and exotic facials, massages, and other spa services. Seven types of massage blend various modalities and may incorporate oils, hot paraffin, or hot stones to soothe aching muscles and relax tattoos of growling tigers. Both massages and facials sometimes call on aromatic essential oils and scrubs to refurbish skin; standouts among these include eucalyptus and mint oils, sea salts, and manuka honey. When not soothing back pains or flushing dirt from pores in their private treatment rooms, the spa staff organizes bridal and birthday parties for larger groups.
Brothers Richard and Philip Samuel operate Maximum Tan, pitching in daily to maintain four levels of tanning equipment at seven salons. A computer system monitors the freshness of lamps in every lie-down and standup UV bed, tracking each bulb's hours so that it can be changed before the standard recommended time. The employees, who are trained in skincare, tanning hygiene, and equipment operation, can bronze bodies with custom airbrush tans or escort guests to self-operated VersaSpa booths. Each store is kept cool so that customers can stay comfortable after tanning sessions or long days babysitting electric blankets.
