To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
It's no coincidence that Brian Silva won Golf World's Golf Course Architect of the Year award in 1999, the year after his two tracks at Waverly Oaks Golf Club opened. Acclaimed by outlets including Golf Digest and the New England Journal of Golf, Waverly Oaks' signature course meanders through tree lines and sand traps for 7,114 challenging yards. Each hole boasts its own playful moniker. The ninth hole, for instance, is dubbed "Double Trouble," a reference to the two ponds golfers must clear?one between the fairway and the tee, the other on the left side of the fairway as it approaches the front of the green. But Silva didn't stop at the signature course. Alongside, he crafted a 9-hole, par 33 challenger course ideal for novices or golfers trying to squeeze in a round before taking their caddie out to dinner.
Championship Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 7,114 yards from the tips * Course rating of 74.0 from the tips * Slope rating of 129 from the tips * Four tee options
Losing unwanted pounds requires an approach that combines short-term and long-term regimens to generate real change over time. At Massachusetts Medical Weight Loss Centers, such multifaceted treatment plans are used to help individuals achieve the body image they desire. The centers' medical director, Dr. Joseph Palma, oversees a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical assistants, and registered dietitians. Their nutritional counseling and lifestyle guidance help patients make changes in their everyday lives that can help them shed unwanted weight. Support is also offered in the form of metabolism-boosting injections, appetite suppressants, and noninvasive Lipo-Light body contouring, which uses light energy to trigger adipose tissues into releasing their fatty-acid contents. When coupled with regular exercise and a healthy diet, these body-contouring treatments can help shrink stubborn fat deposits on patients' limbs, torsos, and vestigial tails.
