The dynamic instructors at each of the six centers teach a holistic approach to yoga and noncombative martial arts that targets flexibility, strength, breathing, and energy sensitivity. Schedules vary from studio to studio, with regular open-level classes such as those at BR Holistic Healing integrating a core regimen of stretching, breathing, and strengthening postures that improve keg-stand techniques tremendously. Vibration sessions at the Body & Brain Center in Metuchen and Dahn Yoga in Closter and Oradell can release stagnant energy and recharge bodies to take on exhausting second jobs impersonating the Energizer bunny at birthday parties. Instructors monitor students' progress, suggesting home-workout plans tailored to personal strengths and vulnerability to fire.

"In three years, I've never repeated a workout. Who wants to do the same thing over and over again?" said Total Core Fitness Boot Camp’s head trainer, Ryan Toth, according to Fighting For Life. The seasoned athlete's creative, constantly varied workouts have drawn more than 400 fitness seekers to his program and earned a feature on News 12's Get Fit Fridays. Amid his two studios' pull-up bars, kettlebells, and punching bags, he and his staff of fellow certified trainers lead functional workouts, favoring blasting through total-body movements over working on weight machines or running on treadmills. Ryan’s dedication to fitness seeps into his personal life as well, as you can spot his wife Dori sweating alongside him while their three young children watch and record their critiques. Ryan and the trainers encourage their patrons to achieve healthy lifestyles beyond the classroom with nutritional counseling, arming them with custom meal plans, nutrition tips, and wholesome recipes. His online program provides busier fitness seekers with complete at-home workouts, enabling them to bust moves at home or during manager's long-winded motivational speech at the office.

The experienced ophthalmologists at Manhattan Lasik Center have successfully sharpened the vision of more than 50,000 pairs of peepers using some of the latest technology in the field. They only perform LASIK and laser vision-correction surgeries at this facility, so patients can count on specialized expertise in the doctors' care and their prowess at laser tag. Free consultations help to determine which option from their menu of treatments is best for individual specs wearers.
NY NJ Lasik stretches its five fully equipped clinics, including a Manhattan location for fuzzy-sighted New Yorkers, across its two neighboring East Coast states. Each facility is presided over by its own board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in the use of laser-based technology, such as LASIK and PRK, to restore eyesight lost to astigmatisms and far- or nearsightedness. Over the past 15 years, they have performed upward of 50,000 of the outpatient laser procedures, turning once-squinty patients into crystal-clear seers.
The clinics’ lineup of expert eye docs includes Dr. Mark Buchsbaum and Dr. Irida Llambiri, both of whom regularly engage prospective LASIK patients in complimentary consultations. During these brief meetings, they either deem the patient to be a suitable candidate for LASIK, recommend an alternative surgery, or advise patients to remove their photographic memory's lens cap.
