Josette Puig, co-owner of GetJosette Fitness Studio, admits that hitting the gym for an hour is not what makes a difference when it comes to losing weight?it's really what you eat, when you eat, and how often you eat. That's why her fitness studio's members get access to nutrition education, including nutrition plans, clean-eating recipes, and simple rules to follow, including picking out two days a week when you get to make yourself a dessert or sneak a bite from your co-worker's ice cream cone. Josette believes that healthy food is the key to burning fat, building muscle, enhancing energy, and improving sleep.
Once patrons properly fuel their bodies, they can blast calories in fitness classes such as Insanity, which relies on long bursts of maximum-intensity exercises and short periods of rest to chisel bodies, and Body Barre classes, which use ballet barre moves and heart-pumping music to sculpt muscles.
Across Daly Foot Care’s three locations, Drs. Albert and Jack Daly draw from more than a decade of experience to treat all types of podiatric issues—from toenail fungus and warts to heel pain and sports injuries. They also design custom orthotic inserts that fully support the unique shape of each foot while walking, exercising, or stomping grapes in a bathtub.
All sorts of clients entrust their eyes to the team at Eye Care Specialists, P.C. Perhaps it?s because each member of the staff has been supplied with glasses or sunglasses from the optical boutique, allowing them to personally recommend frames and lenses for each customer. Customers also come there for the wide selection of frames from brands such as Gucci, Pro Design, Ray Ban, and more. For those who like to spend their time in the sun, progressive lenses and prescription sunglasses are also available.
Dr. George Violin, armed with nearly a quarter-century's worth of refractive-surgery experience, goes to battle with patients' misshaped corneas so they can enjoy functional sight without glasses or contact lenses. Instead of a traditional thin metal blade, the IntraLase procedure creates corneal flaps with rapid pulses of laser light, resulting in reshaped corneas that can heal faster and withstand awkward eye contact from strangers. Prior to the procedure, patients must come in for a complimentary consultation and pre-operative eye exam where the experienced staff will perform diagnostic tests to ensure that eyes are viable candidates for LASIK. After the surgery, which takes five to 10 minutes per eye (the entire appointment lasts about 45 minutes), patients will typically come in for follow-up visits throughout the next year to answer questions and remedy x-ray vision.
