As owner of Aspen Fitness, Matthew Grill teaches students to live healthier, more active lives in four simple steps. But he believes the most important aspect of training happens before the first session even begins. He's talking about the decision to fit fitness into one's hectic schedule, and he aims to make that goal as easy as possible. That's why he holds at least 35 group fitness classes a month, including Zumba and RIPPED Yoga, as well as 30 specialty classes from CrossFit training to MMA conditioning, in which you have to knock the weights unconscious before trying to lift them.

With a wealth of medical weight-loss techniques, the team at New Image Weight Loss and Wellness strives to excise unwanted pounds with Zerona LipoLaser treatments, HGC diet programs, diet modifications, and bioidentical hormone therapy for men and women.
