Concept Cyclery originated in a Silicon Valley entrepreneur's humble dream of a bike shop that allows novices and experts to efficiently shop in a domain tailored to their needs. The pros at Concept will adjust your bicycle's brakes, derailleurs, hubs, headset, and bottom bracket, all the while resisting the urge to accidentally misplace the Mickey Mantle rookie card callously tucked away in your spoke. For a linear ride, front and rear wheels will be trued and rear derailleur, chains, and cassete will be removed and cleaned. The hawk eyes of Concept Cyclery's wheel wizards will assess wear and tear and determine if any replacements are necessary. For a fresh and clean first ride post-tweaking, your handsome velocipede will be thoroughly wiped down and festooned with a blue ribbon for Best in Show.
A practicing chiropractor since 1986, Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Musich supplements traditional chiropractic techniques with innovative and advanced solutions. For instance, to treat lower- and midback and neck pain, the doc might enlist the Gonstead method of chiropractic care, designed specifically to correct spinal misalignments. The gentle electrical currents of electro-acuscope, meanwhile, can catalyze the healing of injured tissues for quicker relief of torn muscles, tendonitis, and ligament sprains. Perhaps Dr. Musich’s best-known service, however, is neurocranial restructuring. By inflating a small balloon inside the nostril and throat, the doctor can “unlock” specific areas of the skull, resulting in relief from a variety of conditions ranging from TMJ to Alzheimer’s.

Today, Grace puts her expertise to use in developing Fatfighter Fitness’s boot-camp programs, through which she and certified personal trainer Erick LeVell guide her clients. In addition to challenging workouts at Fatfighter’s indoor facility, she provides trainees with meal plans and tips to help them shed weight and maximize their fitness.
