FitnessQuest's team of certified trainers and dedicated managers empowers clients of any age and fitness level to pursue healthier lives, starting with a fitness assessment that informs a custom-built program of exercise classes and nutritional guidance. Through these assessments, they create customized regimens that can help clients overcome medical issues, lose weight, or excel at sports-related tasks, such as throwing a baseball or ceremoniously hurling a water cooler at the coach from across the field after a victory. They helm a wide variety of basic and specialized classes that range from personal training, to fitness parties and corporate wellness programs.
The team also offers specialized health programs tailored to different demographics within their client base. They are also members of the Healthways SilverSneakers program, an innovative health, exercise and wellness program that helps older adults to live healthy, active lifestyles. Female-centric concerns, such as finding effective prenatal and postnatal workouts or overcoming difficulties with osteoarthritis, are addressed in their women-only exercise and nutrition program.
In addition to health regimens, the staff supplements exercise with massages to leave muscles feeling their best after long workouts.
Vixen Aesthetics arose from a passion for healing people and caring for skin. Medical director Dr. Jerry Greib developed an interest in aesthetics while treating patients in the emergency room. Leann Griffin, a registered nurse and the CEO of Vixen, fueled her passion for skin rejuvenation after caring for patients in the critical-care and burn-intensive-care units. Together, these two helm a staff that beautifies clients with medical and nonmedical aesthetic procedures. Wrinkles relax after injections of Botox or Dysport, and facial fillers such as Artefill, Restylane, and Juvéderm work to restore fullness. The staff rejuvenates complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasions as well as more advanced treatments, such as carboxytherapy—the practice of injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide into the skin to improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and lingering marker mustaches. With the assistance of versatile laser systems, they can also remove hair, resurface skin, remove tattoos, and eradicate nail fungus.
Refine - Michigan's LipoLaser Center's noninvasive laser technology disrupts the membranes of fat cells. After lasers seek out the cells in their subcutaneous hiding spots, they get the cells to give up their water, fatty acids, and lunch money. The human body then takes care of the rest, flushing out the purged waste or burning it for energy.

At Elwart Family Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Derek Elwart relies on an arsenal of noninvasive chiropractic services to alleviate spinal ailments without the use of surgery or drugs. Rather than limiting his focus to specific problem areas, Dr. Elwart adopts a holistic approach that accounts for the body’s overall health before determining the proper course of treatment. First visitations commence with a consultation, during which the doctor identifies chronic ailments and discusses treatment options. Even the slightest of abnormalities stands little chance of escaping Dr. Elwart’s eye as he peruses spinalscapes in search of bulging discs, pockets of tension, and unturned wind-up keys. Treatments for back injuries and other maladies may involve any combination of corrective exercise, adjustments, massage, and a Zamboni that rolls across shoulders to resurface ragged musculature.
