Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, staff meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength, cardio condition, and bionic-limb manufacturers. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthful eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.

Dr. Alexandra Solano, physician and founder of Dr. Solano’s Ageless & Wellness Medical Center, helps patients to realize their health and weight goals by implementing the Ultra Lite program, which promotes weight loss through nutrition, fitness, and dietary supplements. During an initial consultation, a physician or medical assistant performs a comprehensive medical screening and reviews trends from a four-page online questionnaire that can identify food allergies, biochemical imbalances, or lead-plated organs that can hinder weight loss. A medley of lab tests supplies data on thyroid functioning, cholesterol levels, and metabolism, which Dr. Solano uses to generate a custom diet plan that boosts fat burning with a balance of proteins and carbohydrates spread across three daily meals.
