High cholesterol and high blood pressure—the doctor who gave trainer Emeka Umeh this diagnosis unknowingly lit a fire beneath a patient already tired of his XXL-sized wardrobe. Emeka worked to overcome the unhealthy habits that had fallen into, completing hardcore workouts that eventually slimmed him down to a mere 10.3% body fat. With compassion for those in similar plights, Emeka now guides patrons of all fitness levels through intensive workouts designed to boost their metabolism and tone their musculature at Fit Body Boot Camp. Each session combines both cardio and strength training, drawing together innovative suspension training and battling ropes with primal strength-training techniques that hark back to when early humans first drove their Camaros out of the primordial soup. Over the course of camp, many patrons see slimmer physiques and beefed-up brawn emerge. In addition to leading boot campers, Emeka also offers personal-training services, conducts body assessments to chart his clients' progress, and outlines nutritional plans, pushing his patrons to live healthier lifestyles.

Jim Bertrau, the founder of Great Lakes Wellness Group, turned to alternative medicine as a result of his own personal experiences with healthcare. After conventional medical treatments failed to meet his needs, Bertrau discovered that eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, and raising his own spiritual awareness were the keys to better health. He now believes that the path to overall health begins with treating the whole person, rather than the symptoms.
To share what he has learned, Bertrau performs holistic treatments that address the underlying causes of disease and discomfort, all without the use of drugs or surgery. He empowers people to actively participate in their own future well-being by offering nutritional consultations and customized, four-phase programs designed to get to the root cause of illness. The programs include a pH analysis to check sugar and salt levels, a personalized food plan, and a live-cell analysis—a nutritional-microscopy technique used to find internal imbalances. Bertrau is also certified in auricular acupuncture by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), which he uses to diminish stress and pain by placing needles at five designated points along the outer ear.
Koru, the Maori word from which Koru Therapeutic Massage takes its name, describes a spiral shape that signifies rebirth and growth– concepts that certified medical massage therapist Meghan Caterino understands well. After suffering from paralysis-inducing Guillain-Barre syndrome since childhood, she made an almost-full recovery thanks to a combination of physical therapy, massage, and acupuncture. The experience spurred her on a path to help others heal through massage.
Her nimble hands use all-natural products when working to reduce tension and stress during relaxation and therapeutic massage sessions, during which she helps the body recover after injury, inactivity, or napping with a pet boa constrictor. Meghan has special certification in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya abdominal massage, which she claims helped her conceive her second child without conventional fertility treatments. The focused strokes of this therapy aim to shift internal organs back into position–restoring emotional and physical wellbeing, easing digestive issues, and aiding the reproductive system for both men and women.
