At Goga Studios, 10-minute sessions on whole-body-vibration Goga platforms pair with infrared saunas, himalayan salt lamps, and ionized water to detoxify and rejuvenate bodies. Each experience at Goga centers on the FDA-recognized vibrating platforms, which oscillate and simulate a walking motion. This causes muscles to contract up to 30 times per second for a multitude of benefits, such as weight loss, toned muscles, decreased stress, and an improved shimmy. Sessions in the infrared sauna further aid weight loss by stimulating the body’s metabolism with warm, soothing infrared light.
The instructors at Beyond Yoga encourage awareness of the body on a physical, mental, and spiritual level through yoga classes for participants of all levels. The classes blend elements of Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa yoga styles, with content that varies with the time of day—morning classes prepare clients for the day ahead and evening classes help guests unwind and get over their fear of the moon. On certain weekday mornings, instructors lead sessions on a rooftop patio amid an inspiring combination of sunshine and skyline.
Many of the med-spa services at Vibrant Life Center lead to instant results—cold-laser lipo body contouring deflates fat cells on contact, and a three-pronged combo of laser, microcurrent, and ultrasonic therapy fades wrinkles and blemishes obtained from sucking on a lemon for 24 hours. But these treatments just enhance the effects of long-term solutions, including customized weight-loss programs with wellness coaching and raw-eating education, homeopathic treatment plans, and holistic approaches to healing, from acupuncture to ionic footbaths.

Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled Sgt. H2O's Aquatic Boot Camp after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. Each aquatic session tests fitness practitioners of all ability levels with moves designed to maximize lung capacity, boost swimming speed, and tone the entire body.

Exercisers tackle tasks such as pool sprints, towel swims, treading water with weights, bending submarines over one’s knee, and group exercise drills, as well as aquatic conditioning kicks. In Dallas, Sgt. H2O's personal training programs entitle trainees to attend complimentary boot-camp classes if they complete three hours of personal training per week.
