When discussing Breakthrough Fitness’s training philosophy with reporters from the Seminole Voice, owner and lead trainer Dominic Lucibello quipped, “we train movements, not muscles.” That’s why the fitness coach eschews machines that focus on only one area of the body for training equipment that utilizes many muscles at once. Drawing from his degree in exercise science and his years as a certified personal trainer, Dominic joins a staff of seasoned coaches to lead group fitness classes, semiprivate training sessions, and sports conditioning programs. They’ve stocked their spacious sunlit studio with kettlebells, free weights, and suspension bands, leading clients through high-intensity functional exercises designed to increase their muscle tone and chances of being elected their state’s congressional power ranger. Their dedicated program-writing department draws up customized workout plans for members based on their current level of fitness, taking into account their interests and goals.
Whereas most people enjoy retirement by relaxing, Mary Lou Boyle has enjoyed hers by helping others relax. By transitioning from her radio job to her current role at Saving Face and Body, Boyle returned to her original career path: More than three decades ago, she opened and operated one of Oviedo’s first full-service salons. Years later, she garnered more experience as a cosmetologist at an upscale salon, where she also delved into aesthetics. Boyle left for a stint in media and, after retirement in 2008, opened Saving Face. Now, equipped with years of experience and a license in massage therapy, she along with a team of therapists relieves pain and tension through massage therapy and rejuvenates skin with a collection of facials.

The space at Shears Plus Salon has more color than a box of crayons. Depending on where you look, the walls may be bright red, neon green, or mint. And then there's the hair-washing room, with snow-white molding set against soothing lavender paint. All these jazzy accents remind patrons that the salon is a place of creativity, as well as craftsmanship. Clients can request a traditional wave, a modern pixie cut, or leave it to the stylist's whim for a cut tailored to face shape and personality.
Doctors of Chiropractic Eric Janowitz and Chad Rose and their team bolster clients? health with massages, chiropractic adjustments, and diagnoses of imbalances in spinal alignment.
