Group classes emphasize exercise's communal appeal, with Zumba, Pilates, and kickboxing helping students burn calories in fun, high-energy settings.

Krank Systems prides itself as a health club with a multifaceted approach to training and integrating various techniques for people of all fitness levels to get in shape and feel incredible. This means inspiring coaches, professional-level facilities, and a rigorously challenging approach to achieving one's goals. At Strength and Conditioning, the Krank team is honest and upfront about that last part: "You will be pushed and expected to finish," they explain. Under the guidance of one of these demanding but friendly trainers who understand the human body and the process it must undergo, S&C exercisers jog outside, heave heavy medicine balls, and fight gravity's pull while pushing dumbbells toward the sky from which all weights originally rained.
The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.
