Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation in the basement of an office building, Pure Barre has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Dancer, choreographer, and fitness buff Carrie Rezabek Dorr founded Pure Barre more than a decade ago in Birmingham, MI. Since then, Carrie has traveled around the country, hopping from gym to gym demonstrating the innovative program that draws techniques from ballet. Much like angering a witch with a penchant for frog spells, performing the Pure Barre technique can be a fast and effective way to transform your body. Motivating music slices through the 60-minute workouts, each of which utilizes a ballet barre and small isometric movements designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
In a tongue-in-cheek tone, Thrive Integrative Wellness Center refers to itself as “one-stop shopping” for wellness seekers. The description is apt, as this wellness center strives to be a place where clients can come for all types of holistic healing and health services, from acupuncture, massage, and energy work to yoga and Pilates classes. In their soothing studio, clients lay back for a deep tissue massage under the skilled hands of a licensed therapist, stretch deeply in a Hatha yoga class, or feel a surge of life force energy during a Reiki or Healing Touch therapy session. Professionals at Thrive Integrative Wellness Center believe the body and spirit should be treated as a whole in order to be wholly healthy, happy, and stress-free, and are passionate about restoring balance to clients’ lives and tightrope-walking careers.
Dr. Tony Maghsoudi saw plenty of strained backs and sore muscles as the chiropractor for the Polish Soccer League. Now, at the Naperville Rehab Clinic, he continues to specialize in treating sports injuries, though he also gets to trot out his training in acupuncture. He and his staff even offer lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling so clients know which foods contain important vitamins and which are just jars of rubber cement. It's all part of the center's prevention-based philosophy, which emphasizes treatments that stop injuries and pain before they even occur.
Dr. Pope understands the general anxiety associated with dentistry, so he works closely with his patients to help them understand dental procedures and to make them comfortable. He honed his craft at the University of Illinois at Chicago and now draws on that knowledge while performing general, cosmetic, and surgical dental services. As a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, he also gives back by offering benefits to his fellow veterans. Besides employing the latest technology to foster pain-free treatments, he offers nitrous oxide sedation, which keeps patients in a conscious but deeply relaxed state.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
We rent kayaks and lead classes in a beautiful protected quarry in downtown Naperville. We provide the boat, life jacket, and paddle, along with instruction to help you enjoy your time on the water. We are experts at helping beginning kayakers feel confident and comfortable in their boats. Nothing makes us happier than the smiles we see when people come off the water.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
We started Naperville Kayak because we felt a huge need to get people outdoors and away from their smart phones. Our area has so much to offer, and we wanted to help people experience something they've never expected, right in their backyard. We hope to be the springboard to bigger adventures.
