Family Fitness and FitZone for Women are spread across six locations, but they share a common goal: to help guests find their ideal physique. They accomplish this mission by filling their 15,000- to 25,000-square-foot facilities with ellipticals, arc trainers, and treadmills that engage cardios, cores, and limbs alongside group training classes led by certified personal and group fitness instructors. Visitors can also keep tabs on their progress with the centers’ fitness monitoring program and body mass testing.
At Family Footcare, four qualified foot specialists hold more than 80 years of clinical experience. Combined, they've treated all manner of foot and ankle ailments, from toenail fungus and ankle sprains to bunions and diabetic education.

Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 21 locations in Maryland, Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and western Michigan, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins—which are typically a cosmetic blight—may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation—an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
At Holt Chiropractic Center, doctors of chiropractic Cathy Boufford and Guy Giordano take a preventative approach to overall wellness, emphasizing good health before sicknesses can occur.

Dr. Boufford specializes in children and expectant mothers, improving their postures and easing the after-effects of 5K hopscotch marathons. The center also hosts a warm assisting staff and a trio of massage therapists, whose calming kneads coax tension from recently refurbished backbones.
