Developed in Austria by sports physiologist Dr. Norbert Egger, HYPOXI technology merges moderate aerobic exercise with innovative medical technology. Futuristic-looking capsules surround the cardio machines, providing light vacuum suction and massage compression to augment the flab-busting process. HYPOXI Studio Ballantyne lines its sunlit studio spaces with HYPOXI's contoured capsules, each designed to address stubborn areas of the body. Though the HYPOXI Trainer S120 and L250 both aim to tone thighs, buttocks, hips, and lower abdomens, the L250 is a lower-intensity option ideal for those with high blood pressure or joint problems. The HYPOXI Vacunaut targets cores as joggers don a pressure suit and set their soles atop a treadmill. Requiring no activity, the HYPOXIDermology consists of a specialized suit with 400 pressure chambers that help diminish cellulite and signs of aging. Each body-shaping session lasts about 30 minutes and is ideal for all ages, fitness levels, and time-traveling schedules.

Pam Ennis is a certified Nutrition Counselor, a Natural Food Chef, and regularly contributes to healthy-living publications such as Livestrong. Oh yea, and she founded her own business, Ylive Juice Bar. Pam takes a very friendly, straightforward philosophy toward helping her clients get healthier. "Progress, not perfection," she says.

Pam and her staff provide one-on-one consulting with every client who walks through the door of her Juice Bar. The goal is for clients to educate themselves on the benefits and possibilities that come from a juice cleanse. Outside of the consultation, Pam even maintains a Cleanse Computer Station, which clients can use to quickly reference different plans and choose the best one for their lifestyle. She also knows that a juice cleanse can be challenging, so she alleviates some of the difficulties by delivering juices to clients at their homes, offices, or super-secret cleanse yurts.

Satori means sudden enlightenment, and at Satori Salon that moment comes when stylists spin clients around to face the mirror and a brand new cut and color are revealed. Inside this Washington Avenue salon in the Heights, dark bamboo paneling and wooden Buddhas create a Zen-like feeling. The Satori experience isn’t just about getting a haircut; it’s about creating the perfect hair design in a lush atmosphere. The designers here are all established stylists, and many have master-level color training and experience working on photo shoots and runway shows. A great hairstyle might not lead to sudden enlightenment, but it can definitely be a great surprise during the big reveal.
