Colon Care Center's proprietor, Rosie Machette, oversees the withdrawal of toxins from bodily systems via holistic treatments such as ion-charged foot baths, FAR infrared sauna sessions, and colon hydrotherapy. She also boosts her clients' health with massage therapy, nutrition counseling, and ear candling—all of which uphold the old adage that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," made famous by Ben Franklin and later appropriated by the oft-injured Wile E.

While he was earning his degree in architecture, Caleb D. Howard hoped to build stunning structures that had a positive impact on passersby. As a certified personal trainer, his goal remains the same—he's simply sculpting bodies, not buildings. And, like any good architect, he isn't just concerned with outer appearances. He and his team take a holistic approach to exercise, focusing on strengthening their clients' muscles as well as their mental and spiritual resolve.
To that end, trainers might meet with clients for one-on-one Focus sessions, which are geared toward different levels of exercise experience from "novice" to "seasoned." These customizable routines can be adjusted to target a range of goals, such as mastering the sit-up to applauding at the top of each push-up. Split-Focus sessions divide the trainer's attention between two people, and friendly competition helps fuel these workouts. They also provide group power circuit classes that combine muscle-toning and cardio drills. Those who can't make it to the gym can sign up for online E-training, and follow weekly workouts and nutrition plans that present opportunities to make wholesome lifestyle changes.
