At Warrior Fit Body Boot Camp, nationally certified trainer Darrin Walton uses metabolic-training techniques to help clients get fit and svelte as quickly as possible. His classes revolve around high-intensity intervals and circuits, which often include kickboxing moves, bodyweight exercises, and battling-rope drills. Many workouts emphasize Tabata training, in which participants rest briefly between intervals to rev up their metabolisms for up to 48 hours. During each class, Darrin exudes enthusiasm and cultivates a supportive vibe among students of all skill levels. He also charts students' body composition to keep them motivated as they watch their fat levels drop, their muscles bulk, and their pecs lay eggs and multiply. A collection of online tools—including a goal tracker, a meal planner, and a nutrition learning center—helps students cultivate healthy habits outside the classroom.
Allante Life Med Spa's med spa lavishes patrons in peels, dermal fillers, cosmetic laser treatments, and Botox treatments, preserving youthful complexions with minimally invasive treatments that diminish the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, such as freckles shaped like phonographs.

Gem State Dermatology’s certified epidermal artisan, Dr. Mings, restores frontispieces to grin-inducing glory with a noninvasive microdermabrasion skin-resurfacing treatment. After a free, yet optional, 45-minute cosmetic consultation with amicable aesthetician Caitlin Hutchinson expunges facial filth and burrowing skin gophers during a preprocedure cleansing. Then, the Diamond Tome system gingerly sloughs away sullied epidermal layers and dead skin cells with a diamond-tipped wand, paving the way for new cell growth and rubber-band-grade elasticity. By reducing tegument thickness, the procedure helps to unclog pores brimming with blackheads and loose change, and may also shoo away mild acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. A slathering of moisturizer and sun block completes the treatment, leaving faces hydrated and protected against UV rays.
Radio-frequency probes sound like something used to discover new stars, but they’re actually one of the many technologies used by Dr. Frank Fazzio to improve his patients’ lives. Dr. Fazzio has been practicing medicine since 1978, and his surgical attention has been focused solely on vein disorders since 2004. The medical veteran wields some of the most modern tools available to his specialty, including endoscopic cameras, advanced lasers, and the da Vinci Surgical System, which uses robotic technology to perform complicated operations. It’s not just the technology that makes Dr. Fazzio an authority in his field, though—he has performed an astounding 15,000 surgical procedures during his career, only 6 shy of Babe Ruth’s record.
Like millions of corn stalks, Dr. Fazzio has roots in Illinois and found his way in the dining halls of a Wisconsin college—Marquette University. After studying medicine at the Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Fazzio completed a residency in general and peripheral vascular surgery at the University of Utah. But he’s now firmly planted in Idaho, and during his career he has even been the president of the medical staff at Treasure Valley Hospital.
