It’s impractical to wear a TV screen on a necklace while going for a morning jog. But that’s what one would have to do to replicate a special technology offered for busy parents at Peak Fitness: all cardio machines are outfitted with a personal viewing screen and a channel that pipes into the onsite babysitting room. So while parents are taking advantage of a full range of services, they can keep an eye on their little ones.
Peak Fitness accommodates diverse trainees by offering a wide range of services, from personal training to spa services that heal overworked muscles to meal plans that provide the proper amount of calories. The gym houses strength-training equipment along with a cycling room and cardio floor. Its treadwall creates a never-ending rock climb that builds endurance safely. There’s even a basketball half court and indoor volleyball court, and patrons can purchase nutritional substances and workout gear from the pro shop.
Unlike lousy tour guides, the team at Peak Fitness doesn’t leave clients fending for themselves all the time. Fitness classes cater to different interests with options such as step aerobics, kickboxing, and yoga. After patrons finish their workout and tidy up in individual steam showers, they can further prepare for beach season by bronzing their skin inside a sun capsule or horizontal tanning bed.

Owner Trish Eastwood and her team of seven certified therapists possess years of training in therapeutic massage and take a serious approach to their profession. Each no-nonsense massage incorporates ample communication in order for the specialists to ease their clients' particular knots and painful spots with deep kneads, gliding strokes, and nimble fingers. To enhance relaxation sessions, steamed towels, hot stones, and aromatic essential oils warm the muscles and invigorate the senses much like a nap in a bread oven.
Led by Dr. Arnold Rivera and PA-C Scott Callahan, Dolce Vida Medical Spa's skilled staff performs high-tech skin and body rejuvenations alongside relaxing spa treatments.

Drawing from an apothecary of high-end skincare products from Éminence, SkinTherapeutic, and Revision Skin Care, aestheticians nurture façades with specialized masks, and massage therapists ease tension from torsos with hot stones, lava shells, frozen oven mitts, or bare hands.
Presence of Wellness is a haven of holistic health coaching, Ayurvedic yoga, cooking instruction, and lifestyle guidance.

Simone holds many qualifications in the realms of yoga teaching and the alternative therapies of Ayurveda.
