Patients rarely expect a medical office where they can meet with their primary-care physician, get a chiropractic adjustment, and round out their visit with a cutting-edge laser or aesthetic treatment. Dr. Angela Vecellio, Dr. Sal Pilato, and Dr. Kimberly Stein made that myth-like destination a reality at Palm Beach Medical, wisely choosing to do so above sea level after the mistakes of Atlantean small-business owners. Dr. Vecellio leads the friendly and multidisciplinary team from her own advanced training in nutrition, pediatrics, and weight loss, addressing physical ailments with chiropractic care and a variety of innovative therapies. Dr. Stein oversees medical treatments, administering flu shots and performing physicals.

CrossFit newcomers and regulars can work out side-by-side at Crossfit Athletic Co. That's because the studio assigns two coaches to each class, one to instruct beginners and another to push more seasoned CrossFitters to their limit. Regardless of fitness level, however, exercisers should be ready to work. The daily workouts, which consist of functional exercises such as pull-ups, pushups, and throwing things out of rage, are designed to be as intense as exercisers can handle.
