Chef Chris Borden has sliced, diced, and sizzled up countless gourmet dishes for more than 17 years. A master of making fine food on a tight caloric budget, Borden's career spans work at establishments ranging from luxurious country clubs to diet-conscious healthcare facilities. At Fresh 'n Fit Cuisine, he's backed by a highly trained culinary team and a registered dietitian, all of whom work to make the finest meals no matter what the client's nutritional needs. Borden uses fresh ingredients, shying away from the frozen, dehydrated, or astronaut-friendly ones often used in other premade meals.
The menus rotate regularly, and meet the guidelines set by the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Cancer Society. After Chef Borden and his team prepare the dishes within a USDA-approved kitchen, they’ll prep them for pickup at one of Fresh ‘n Fit’s 79 area locations.

Healthy living has not always been a top priority for Alexander Simmons. But after watching his father battle cancer that was too advanced to respond to alternative treatments, Alexander knew he needed to change and take a preventive view toward health. Since adopting this outlook on wellness, Alexander has gone on to establish Wholebody Systems, where he helps everyone from athletes in their prime to senior citizens strengthen their muscles while minimizing stress on joints and ligaments with low-impact bioDensity and whole-body vibration machines.
The clinicians and dietitians at WeightLoss MD, helmed by medical director Dr. John Ouderkirk, tip the scales in dieters' favor by employing lab test results and custom, one-on-one advice. Their client base is 85% composed of women, so they understand the unique weight-loss challenges posed to women, but they are just as skilled at helping men ditch unhealthy belly fat. While not included with vitamin-B-complex injections, lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants can bolster calorie burning and control, and the meal plans are tailored to fit each participant's lifestyle, tastes, and mouth size.
Fit & Fabulous Bodywraps possesses the ability to slenderize and smooth clients' bodies with a bevy of body-wrap options. The Express Power Wrap and Wrap Utopia each utilize an herbal-based, collagen-enhanced formula to promote supple skin, boost a loss in inches, and restore skin's elasticity. Once expertly wrapped and high-fived, clients who choose the Express Power Wrap will sit with a movie, book, or soothing music in the Far Infrared Sauna. One session burns up to 1,200 calories—more than a typical cardiovascular workout—while also releasing toxins from fat cells. Designed for clients who cannot sit in the sauna due to medical conditions, the Wrap Utopia applies heat via a one-hour Scandinavian chair massage and achieves results similar to the Express service. The Smooth Away My Cellulite wrap combats dimpled skin on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, while simultaneously improving blood circulation and burning fat and calories in eternal volcano fire.
