At ProSmiles Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Lena Andriescu and Dr. Mircea Andriescu keep teeth healthy with preventative care, fillings, and root canals—but that’s just the beginning. Their general dentistry lays the foundation for cosmetic treatments, which beautify smiles more effectively than mustache perms. Invisalign treatments, for example, unobtrusively straighten teeth with transparent aligners and Zoom! whitening treatments, meanwhile, lift persistent stains. During any treatment, optional conscious sedation is available to relax nervous clients. Furthermore, both doctors pride themselves on their gentle, friendly demeanors and comforting bedside manner, and Dr. Mircea Andriescu has even been known to incorporate his DJ talents into his sessions to entertain and relax his clients.
When Regina Janesko had to take a physical fitness test in order to keep a new job, the avid gym rat and weightlifter wasn't worried about passing. Yet somehow she failed the first two times she took it, leaving her with only one opportunity left. When her test administrators suggested she try CrossFit, Regina went to Bergen County CrossFit, where co-owner Daniel Ramsay created fitness routines tailored to the requirements of her exam. Needless to say, she nailed it on the third try. Today, she's still an active member at Bergen County Crossfit.
It's a common occurrence here: people wander in, some with a specific goal others without, and eventually become part of a community that seeks to support and encourage each other. The daily classes can be modified based on age and fitness level, and incorporate techniques such as kettle bells and core strengthening. Co-owner Lily is also known to dish out nutritional advice, helping members supplement their workouts with healthful meal suggestions and tips on where to find low-cal snacks.
Boring workouts have no place at CrossFit South Hackensack. Instead, instructors lead conditioning and strength-building classes that routinely change to incorporate new combinations of Olympic lifting techniques, gymnastics, and functional exercises. Students have complete control over each exercise though, and can run, squat, jump, push, and pull with an intensity that safely pushes the limits of their current fitness level. Instructors trust attendees to challenge themselves, but will provide inspiring motivation along the way while fostering a supportive community environment where students are encouraged to help each other by offering words of encouragement or telekinetic weight-lifting assistance.
At Athletic Overdrive, it's not uncommon to see people carrying a beer keg at a full-on sprint. But they're not rushing to a raging party; rather, these elite athletes are training as part of CrossFit classes and strongman games. In addition to CrossFit classes, the team of elite trainers also leads sport-specific training based on their experience as athletes in sports such as football, track, soccer, and volleyball. They specialize in a variety of cardio, strength-training, and TRX suspension programs, as well as personal training with programs tailored to each client's individual needs.
