The certified trainers at Elite Fitness know that the best motivation is seeing results. When rating their clients’ progress, they transcend mere measuring tapes and scales; they also use the FitRanx fitness rating system, which allows clients to rank themselves against others in their community. With every sweaty pull-up and jumping jack, clients watch themselves move up the ranks within their age group, gaining momentum as they increasingly grow stronger, leaner, and more confident.
A staff of bariatric doctors helps the pounds fall of their clients’ frames with custom weight-loss programs. They teach their patients how to create a healthy diet with food easily obtained at a local grocery store, while out at a restaurant, or at a vacationing neighbor’s house. As medical professionals, the team also expertly recommends any accompanying prescription diet medications that may help individuals safely attain their weight-loss goals.
Sometimes, boot camp classes carry a military tone—one that dilutes encouragement in favor of brutish yelling.

Complementary nutritional guidance, meal planning, and fitness evaluations available to all campers helps to achieve goals.
Sanctuary Hair Design's professional stylists beautify their clients with subtle to dramatic new looks. A hair service can be as simple as a basic trim, or a whole new color and style. Beauty doesn't end with hair, though: along with hair care services, they also pamper with facials, manicures, and waxing. Meanwhile, makeup and formal styling get guests looking their best for special events such as weddings and Tuesdays.
Board-certified physician James A. Coomes leads Advanced Anti-Aging and Weight Loss, so it's no surprise that the clinic has a decidedly medical bent. The medically supervised weight-loss program incorporates everything from hormone balancing and Zerona body sculpting treatment to lab-analysis work. ??Dr. Coomes turns to such technological tools as nonsurgical Pixel laser skin-rejuvenation treatments, which employ lasers to create thousands of tiny perforations in the skin, thereby stimulating a healing process that can erase fine lines and pigmentation problems. Microdermabrasion treatments revive skin texture and diminish light scars via apparatus-assisted exfoliation, and chemical peels employ fruit acid, herbs, and antioxidants to stimulate the release of dead skin cells from bodily exteriors and encourage the production of collagen and novelty hats. The clinic also offers results-orientated medical facials to clients.
