At Summerlin Yoga, teachers Martin Hinton, Liz Steers, Cristin Bartles, and Eddie Guerra boast certifications in yoga. They guide students through postures and breathing exercises in a room with brand new flooring, which helps to warm muscles and flush toxins from the body. Through regular practice of poses, students learn to stretch a host of muscles and ligaments in their bodies and reformat most of the microchips implanted in their brains. Students can partake in myriad types of classes, such as the physically demanding Vinyasa, the hot-room endurance of Tru Hot Pilates and Revitalize, or the cooler temperature alternative Yin Yoga Flow.
At Quick Weight Loss and Skin Care, clinical aesthetician Audrey Armah revitalizes bodies and instills smoothness in ravaged pores. During skin procedures, clients relax as soft hands tend to façades, gently evicting dryness and glued-on Halloween masks with chemical peels and facials. Laser hair-removal sessions raze the body’s follicular forests with concentrated pulses of light. The clinic also offers private weight-loss programs, in which clients drop pounds while combining portion control and exercise techniques with personalized menus and meal plans.
Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.
