Crossroads Bootcamp’s seasoned instructors challenge students to exceed their fitness goals at 60-minute boot-camp-style workouts and CrossFit sessions. In addition to teaching participants how to stop time with an intense stare, boot-camp classes sculpt the entire body with intense cardio and the strength-building power of barbells, kettlebells, and medicine balls. Like interpretations of traffic laws, no two boot-camp workouts are identical, which keeps minds and muscles on their proverbial toes. CrossFit sessions team small groups of exercisers with an inspiring coach to practice strength-and-conditioning exercises that, though challenging, can be scaled to suit any fitness level. The intense workouts and disciplined mindset of CrossFit training makes it a popular choice among police, martial-arts trainers, and cops who specialize in capturing rogue martial artists.
Each Crossroads class unfurls in a 4,500-square-foot loft studio, which provides ample room for Herculean barbell lifts and spontaneous zeppelin crashes. Classes are scheduled seven days a week.

Once Harley Sears' treatment is concluded, you'll return quickly to your natural state, better equipped to overcome life's hurdles, such as the miles of wooden hurdles that obstruct your morning commute to work.
Bare Essence Med Spa’s goal is to boost confidence and pamper bodies within brightly colored treatment rooms decorated with flower art and real orchids. In these rooms, aestheticians exfoliate dead skin with microdermabrasion and vitamin-C enzyme peels. They further tend to skin with facials that hydrate or fend off signs of aging or acne. A battery of Image skincare products both protects and fortifies the skin, feeding the dermis a powerful diet of nutrients, vitamins, and tears from teenage pop stars. Technicians can also erase unwanted body hair through laser treatments and help clients slim down with detoxifying body wraps made from three types of seaweed.
The science behind the impressive results of Mind, Body, & Soul is complex and nuanced, but its aim is simple: enhance a naturally occurring metabolic process. The Yolo Curve and Lapex Lipo Laser target fat cells with noninvasive laser energy, causing them to release water, fatty acids, and glycerol, which results in smaller fat cells and inch loss.
