During her time as a fashion model, Donna Michelle D'Aurio knew the importance of staying in shape. But, when she became a trained fitness instructor, she quickly learned the importance of being both fit and healthy. With this philosophy in mind, Donna established Bella Fitness as a mobile fitness company in 2006. Since then, the company has grown into a fitness business where a staff of personal trainers, dance instructors, sport coaches, and nutritionists designs customized fitness plans for everyone from kids to senior citizens.
Within the studio, clients can work up a sweat in semi-private Pilates, Barre, Zumba, TRX, and dance cardio classes that reflect Donna’s own group fitness certifications from the Arthritis Foundation, SilverSneakers, PiYo, and YMCA. For younger clients, kids' yoga and Zumba classes are also available. At the other end of the spectrum, personal training sessions provide one-on-one attention as exercisers focus on mastering specific fitness routines or strengthening their levitation abilities. Bella's facility is also equipped with a Korr Reevue breathing test, which determines resting metabolic rates, as well as plenty of space to host training courses on CPR and fitness instruction.
The licensed massage therapists at Finishing Touch Therapeutic Massage offer an expansive menu of massage modalities for therapeutic and medical purposes. In private treatment rooms, they perform massages that may integrate eastern techniques, such as Thai acupressure and shiatsu, western methods such as deep-tissue and Swedish bodywork, or northern methods such as reindeer hoof and candy cane therapy. Finishing Touch also offers facials to rejuvenate the complexion and soothing aromatherapy to ease tension.
Aveda products are as renowned for their plant-based ingredients and eco-friendly packaging as they are for their beautification prowess, so it’s no surprise that the experts behind Glendale Aveda Salonspa rely on them during each of their styling treatments. Armed with their botanical tinctures, the salon’s stylists, mold manes with marshmallow-root texture lotions and lather locks with aromatic shampoos and conditioners. They also tint hair with colors infused with plant oils that subdue damage and leave each strand shiny and healthy. These hues come in natural blonds, browns, and reds, as well as primary and secondary colors distilled from sustainably harvested crayons. On the other side, spa staffers also reach for Aveda products—including hydrators and cleansers—as they clarify and rebalance careworn epidermises. When they aren't nourishing clients, the stylists at Glendale Aveda Salonspa attend weekly classes to hone their skills. They also donate their time to nonprofit organizations, such as the Coalition for Clean Air and the Glendale Health Fair.
The aestheticians at Orchid Skin Care keep clients at their most beautiful with personalized services for the whole body. Using exclusively Yon-Ka skincare products, the staffers regenerate faces with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments backed by nourishing botanicals. Meanwhile, eyelash extensions and permanent makeup enhance facial features without the hassle of morning cosmetics routines. The experts also melt tension through aroma-infused massages and wraps, and spray tanning imbues skin with a UV-free bronze glow to help prepare for trips to the beach or attempts to infiltrate the Olympics as a third-place medal.
At Pristine Nails & Spa, nail technicians enhance fingers and toes with a full spectrum of mani-pedi services. Clients can sink into cushy pedicure thrones as the techs buff away rough calluses and file toenails before adorning them with colorful polish. Nail artists lavish similar treatment on hands, but they can also top pointers with acrylics, french tips, or chip-resistant gel polish. On the spa half of the salon, aestheticians soften complexions during European facials and lather skin with warm wax to strip away unwanted hair or pasted-on dryer lint from the brows, legs, and bikini line.
The staffers at Andso Ageless Skin Care use only all-natural, paraben- and preservative-free products to tame skin during their facials. Though most of their treatments aim to refresh aging skin and keep it youthful-looking in the long run—as the business’s name suggests—they also perform facials that target acne, clogged, pores, and dull skin.
