The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education. This approach doesn't just assuage painful symptoms—it's also designed to uncover the root causes of ailments such as whiplash, insomnia, headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and more.
In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
As a lifelong equestrian, Emilie Goddard has ridden horses in many disciplines, including hunt seat, trail riding, and vaulting. But as the head instructor at Pemberley Riding Academy, Emilie teaches dressage, a style of riding she is most passionate about because of its grace, beauty, and distance from rush hour trail traffic. As she trains to compete at the Grand Prix level of dressage herself, Emilie coaches new equestrians in the discipline, while also mixing in basic english equitation and jumping skills. Students as young as 4 are encouraged to test their skills and build upon past successes, with the end goal of emerging as a safe and efficient rider. Emilie also expands on the lesson curriculum with camps and mini clinics, designed to create well-rounded equestrians through topics such as equipment, barn upkeep, and horse breeds.
Bodyfit’s three classes all have one thing in common: intensity. During Punch, students swaddle fists in wraps and slip on gloves before pummeling 6-foot heavy bags nonstop. Kettle-Kombat mixes kicks and punches with fast-paced kettlebell exercises. Burn keeps patrons on their toes with ever-changing routines and exercises using an assortment of equipment such as battling ropes, sandbags, and tires.
Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis. Instead of guests fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches each exerciser's abilities. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, machines use push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Every thigh- or torso-transformer is equipped with the CurvesSmart personal-coaching system, which uses programmed information on weight, endurance level, and fitness goals to automatically calibrate the perfect challenge for individual bodies. The CurvesSmart system also delivers a postworkout rundown on the strength built and progress achieved during each session. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and to squirt overheated guests with a Super Soaker.

Rebecca Noland believes women should support each other, which is one of the reasons she founded Lexington Live Fit. Rebecca understands the daily struggles of women because she has experienced them herself, from body-image issues and dietary pressure to the stress that comes along with everyday life. At Lexington Live Fit, she designs short workouts that harness the philosophy of Tabata circuit training—performing high-intensity exercises with short periods of rest in between. The workouts typically last 20 minutes and can help burn calories while also boosting metabolism.
