Many fitness professionals spend years studying exercises but ignore how those movements impact the physical makeup of the body. The instructors at Fitness360 stand out from the crowd of exercise experts by each holding four-year degrees in physiology in addition to their training certifications. The team shares its copious knowledge as it leads individuals and small groups through private workout sessions. Instructors use nontraditional training gear such as heavy ropes, weight sleds, tractor tires, sledgehammers, and cartoon anvils to target each muscle group and keep things interesting for their clients. Each of routine is designed with fluid movements to encourage muscle definition all over the body while simultaneously increasing cardiovascular health. In addition to regular classes, the 360 team also hosts specialty workshops for distance runners.
While they take advantage of Fitness360's facilities, guests can also stop by the juice bar for a protein rich shake before heading home.
The instructors and practitioners at TendingShen devote themselves to spreading the word of acupuncture from its roots in Eastern Asia to Western shores. They believe that five-element acupuncture—a descendant of traditional Japanese and Korean styles—makes a versatile complement to Western medicine, augmenting treatments that address ailments metabolically with holistic methods designed to stimulate the body’s own natural healing.
Patricia Mahone and Barbara Simpson, the healers at Gate of Life, treat patients holistically, employing a combination of modern Western medicine and traditional Eastern acupuncture and moxibustion. The duo use their years of experience and understanding of Five Element acupuncture to treat the root cause of patients' pain. Sessions commence with an initial assessment, during which therapists evaluate patients' medical history and determine that they are not evil twins. The therapist then gently inserts the thin needles along the body, targeting specific energy points to help to relieve aches, strengthen the immune system, increase energy levels, and, ultimately, free up stagnant chi. Gate of Life also provides moxibustion sessions⎯burning cones made of the Chinese plant moxa⎯along the acupuncture's injection sites to enhance the treatment's effects.
Drs. Jennifer and Dennis Lesniak(http://lesniakchiropractic.com/ about/) utilize their experience as athletes and their education in exercise science to immerse customers in a conditioning regimen deigned to work out the entire body. One-hour sessions begin with a dynamic warm-up that prepares muscles for intense intervals of core work, cardio circuits, functional full-body movements, and sudorific walks to water fountains. A proper cool down ends each workout while the instructor addresses comments, concerns, or suggestions from the newly fatigued class. Boot-camp sessions convene 12 times throughout the week with Drs. Jennifer or Dennis leading most of the classes while suggesting ways to tailor exercises to individual fitness levels and preparing students to crab walk their way through ultramarathons.
Cardinale Acupuncture is owned and operated by Chet Cardinale, a licensed acupuncturist with extensive training beneath his homeopathic belt. Sidle up to his perforation palace, prepared to explain your particular maladies and allow the treatment to be tailored to your individual needs. Acupuncture technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of health care in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. It works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good health. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be an effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies.
