Inside Melting Point’s sultry studio, woodblock Buddha prints smile serenely upon students as they smoothly transition through a series of body-strengthening poses. The temperature hovers between 100 and 105 degrees, ensuring that beginning and advanced practitioners can attain deep stretches, detoxification, and bowls of soup not quite warm enough to be enjoyable. Wide-blade ceiling fans and bamboo-hardwood floors evoke a tropical bungalow, and wide windows carry a flood of natural light into the studio space. Because of the high temperature, towels are mandatory during classes; students can bring their own or rent towels and mats from the studio. After class, students can capitalize on their primed and supple muscles with a Swedish or neuromuscular massage from a licensed massage therapist.

Dr. Larry Compton fixes problematic teeth with his sharp dentistry skills and technology. He uses a special computerized anesthesia system that numbs one tooth at a time, which diminishes excessive numbness and the typical drooling that occurs with other anesthesia methods. A soft-tissue laser helps Dr. Compton remove diseased patches without the need for a scalpel or stitches. When he’s not fixing smiles in the office, Dr. Compton shares his extensive knowledge with others during seminars and long waits at the DMV.

Devan Kline was a pitcher in the minor leagues for the San Francisco Giants, focusing his attention on making it to the majors when another career opportunity blindsided him. In the summers of 2009 and 2010, he began helping Vanessa—the mother of the host family he lived with during home games—train to get back on shape. Devan witnessed firsthand her rapid transformation as she lost 45 pounds, and he saw the positive impact it had on her and her family's lives. The grateful clan told Devan that his time with them had changed their lives, and it’s then that he knew he wanted to dedicate himself to helping others in the same way. That’s when he founded Burn Boot Camp.

Now, Devan—with the help of a coterie of trainers—conducts indoor boot camps in six locations, using exercises that Devan himself used to get into shape during his days as a professional athlete. The team supplements those regimens with loads of body-weight-resistance training and heart-pounding cardio drills that include sprinting short distances or boxing defibrillators.
