Julie Johnston founded Boot Camp Las Vegas in 2005, when—after unsuccessfully trying to lose 60 pounds through a battery of exercise techniques—she considered enlisting in the military solely for the physical challenge and camaraderie. Upon reconsideration, she decided to reclaim some turf from the lazy birds in nearby parks and stage her own workouts to build the physical and mental toughness she knew she was capable of developing. Today, a team of instructors—all certified personal trainers who have completed 64 days of boot-camp training—preaches Johnston's program to exercisers of all fitness levels. To help monitor and maximize workouts, they stage weigh-ins, take measurements, perform physical-fitness tests, and dish out a nutrition packet to shed light on healthy eating.
For exercisers, BodyFuel Fitness has everything they need, no matter when they need it. The 24-hour facility's floor is stocked with a full compliment of Cybex, Precor, FreeMotion, and Nautilus machines to torch calories and sculpt muscles. And, when clients need encouragement or motivation, they'll be able to easily find a group fitness class in which to enlist, including spin, Pilates, and boot-camp sessions.
Calling out for sanctuary is futile when constrictive shoes silence your toes, and that's why Barefoot Sanctuary encourages freedom of the soul and the sole. Barefoot is the first and only yoga studio to reside amongst the fresh produce and organic wares of a Whole Foods Market. Barefoot Sanctuary’s inspirational classes bring together Cirque du Soleil performers, certified yoga instructors, and famous workshoppers to expertly guide you through the fun, body- and mood-altering movements.
When Katie and Scott Gillespie opened Sassy Chic, they filled its confines with cozy touches that beckon clients to relax. A plush couch hosts waiting clients, and sheer, flowery curtains frame doorways throughout the salon. They also peppered the pale-blue walls with three-dimensional flowers and butterfly-themed artwork. Stylists dispense trendy haircuts in front of gold-framed mirrors, and nail technicians paint keratin sheets with polish colors that range from bold solids to glittery hues.
The career of skinfuzion owner Kimberly Hutchinson has spanned both coasts—while living in New York City and then in LA, she earned years of aesthetic and skincare experience, as well as certifications in laser technology and jaywalking. Now, with much practice under her belt, she performs targeted laser treatments in Las Vegas to remove unwanted hair and veins, and rejuvenates skin with dermaplaning and acid peels. Along with Kimberly, new additions to the staff at skinfuzion, Kendal Olsen and Megan Pingree, bring years of experience and expertise in aesthetics and skin rejuvenation.
