Because it's held at Dynamic Training & Rehabilitation's Burlington facility, B-Town Bootcamp keeps its classes in close proximity to personal trainers, alternative health practitioners, and physical therapists. The certified trainers lead exercisers during the high-intensity group boot camps, and through custom routines during one-on-one sessions. A team of alternative-medicine practitioners, including chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists, act as sherpas on journeys toward health. The staff also works to rehabilitate injuries with physical-therapy sessions aimed at preventing future problems and uncovering the root causes of knees' recurring nightmares.
Erin Mills Fitness allows its members to exercise individually, during group classes, or one-on-one with personal trainers. The facility houses a full circuit of strength training equipment, as well as cardio equipment and ample free weights. In other areas, instructors teach yoga, Pilates, and Zumba classes. Erin Mills Fitness complements its exercise services with registered massage therapy and chiropractic care.
A multilingual team speaking a total of nine languages, the healers at Physio Active Rehab aid clients of all backgrounds with injury rehabilitation and prevention therapies such as foot-reflexology massage. Massage specialists stimulate precise points on the feet believed to correspond to other areas of the body. By strengthening the connection between these corporeal coordinates, therapists help restore and nurture energy pathways, boosting circulation while imbuing bodies with the calm of a satellite floating in outer space. Further benefits may reduce muscle stiffness, increased ability to reach top-shelf candy stashes, and even relief from health issues such as asthma and sinusitis.
Dr. Joseph B. Neiman, a board-certified dermatologist with more than 30 years of experience to his credit, draws on training from New York University, the University of Tennessee, and Brown to treat the entire body. His background also includes hair restoration and nailcare. Together with a pair of trained nurse practitioners, he works over intense-pulsed-light units, hair-removal lasers, and other pieces of modern technology. In treatment rooms, the team also draws upon an arsenal of Botox, Radiesse, and other products to help patrons meet beauty goals without always having to give a fairy godmother rides to the airport.
Despite spending most of their 125-plus-year history as a minor-league organization, the Bisons were a major-league club from 1879 to 1885. All told, nearly 3,000 players and managers have donned the Bisons uniform, including 20 who have been immortalized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Currently, the Bisons compete every summer for an International League title, as well as the Thruway Cup—a regional and bragging-rights-based trophy chased by the Bisons, the Rochester Red Wings, and the Syracuse Chiefs. The Bisons have played half of their games since 1988 at Coca-Cola Field, which boasts the largest video board in the minors and an infield kept moist by hoses that spray water and not the soda that the field’s name would suggest.
