Rick Verastegui is a jack-of-all-trades. As a kid, Rick could be spotted marching around his yard holding a trashcan above his head, imitating either bodybuilder Charles Atlas or the neighborhood's most muscular garbage man. Although he eventually set the trashcan down, Rick never lost his passion for health. He carried that into adolescence and adulthood, earning a black belt in karate, playing football, and becoming a certified personal trainer.
In between all of that, Rick found time to earn his master's degree in business, plus degrees in Spanish, government, and economics—all of which he taught at some point. Still, fitness remained an integral part of his life. Rick expanded on his already lengthy resumé by becoming a nationally certified massage therapist, a skill he practices extensively at Unearth the Power. Rick also provides weight-training, stretching, and bodywork services, all while using his diverse background to connect with clients.
As a mother, Dr. Kimberly Roberts knows that women need more than just medical attention—they need emotional attention, too. In her words, “I will always give patients the time and attention necessary to address all of their concerns.” Dr. Roberts and Dr. Ceeccy Yang, also a kind and empathetic mother, oversee the all-female team of medical professionals at Contemporary Women's Health, where they help women achieve healthier lives through gynecology services and obstetrics care.
While the center’s medical professionals attend to matters of the body, aestheticians and massage therapists work to rejuvenate spirits and boost beauty. Spa services yield smoother, healthier skin, and include facials, laser hair removal, and waxing. Massage therapy, on the other hand, relieves muscular tension and relaxes firmly clenched tendon fists.
From the corporate store to each franchise location, the staff members of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition go beyond stocking and suggesting supplements to offer health help through a variety of channels. Sales associates in the stores help to discern the optimal body aid to achieve the personal fitness goals of athletes, bodybuilders, and everyday exercisers, be they weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, toxin-flushing, or intimidating a superhero into ripping a cumbersome collection of old phone books in half.
A certified sports-nutrition specialist can also sit down with clients to chart their age, gender, height, and basal metabolic rate to draft a comprehensive, custom nutrition plan. The written word further fortifies customers' soul cages in Max Sports and Fitness, a monthly magazine brimming with health-supplement advice and fitness tips.
