The staff at Legacy Fitness never yells, berates, or curses at their patrons during Legacy Fitness boot camps. Instead, they motivate them with a sense of humor and positive encouragement. To keep them engaged and prevent them from suffering workout burnout, they lead them in a new routine every day. This ever-varying approach prevents bodies from adapting to the workouts, so muscles must always work their hardest, burning more calories and building strength more quickly. They conduct the camps at multiple indoor and outdoor locations, drawing from the surroundings to guide the workouts. On any given day, students might flip oversize tires end over end and work as a team to push a car down an empty street or do sprints and heave medicine balls in a gym. These functional workouts help patrons tone their entire bodies more safely and effectively than swimming laps in a quicksand pit.
Nationally certified massage therapist Vana of Comfort Cove Massage designs custom bodywork sessions that account for her clients' individual needs. Vana begins each treatment with an assessment that helps her design a plan to remove muscle discomfort. She then begins one of her three signature treatments: a chair massage, a hot-stone massage, or a therapeutic massage that blends techniques from various modalities. Therapeutic motions induce a sense of calm, whereas an optional heated massage table and massage oils deepen relaxation. During the hot-stone massage, Vana moves hot stones across the back, alternately kneading with the stones in hand and stationing them in place for longer heat concentration. At the conclusion of each service, clients receive a warm-towel treatment for the neck, face, or any other area with lingering stiffness.

Evolve Paleo Chef aims to recreate the human diet before the age of agriculture and civilization, crafting nourishing meals of smoked fish, grilled chicken, and steaks that satisfy primal hunger pangs. The kitchen's paleo (short for paleolithic) diet fuels the body with the same nourishment that was available to our distant hunter-gatherer ancestors?little to no sugar, no dairy, no gluten, plenty of meat, and the fear of sabertooth tigers. Chefs design delicious meals and snacks around these core nutrients, which can be picked up or delivered directly to your doorstep every week. Each meaty meal is made with products from local companies such as Dodge City Beef, a rancher-owned producer of pork and beef, or Campo Lindo Farms, a source for flavorful, pasture-raised poultry.
Dr. Jay Goodbinder is a huge proponent of respecting and listening to the signs the body provides. To that end, the dedicated practitioner analyzes not just his patients’ symptoms, but also their bones, muscles, and their very molecules. He uses laboratory tests to unearth the root source of pain and discomfort, which might include nutritional deficiencies or toxicities. He then crafts a personalized treatment plan around these findings, which may include acupuncture therapy, simple adjustments, or myofascial release to heal damaged soft tissue as well as nutritional counseling or kinesio taping. Dr. Goodbinder and staff also use Nebulizer breathing treatments to administer nutrients directly to the blood stream.
