Designed in Switzerland in the 1970s and refined in Italy, the Figurella weight-loss method is a natural way for women to get in shape all over the world. The program combines exercise inside a transparent dome called the Bubble to reshape specific body areas and oxygen baths inside the SpaShell to accelerate fat metabolism, improve circulation, and hydrate skin. In addition, clients will get dietary advice that is personalized to their body, lifestyle, and fitness goals. A team of health professionals, including dietitians, supports each Figurella therapist with the knowledge necessary to help each individual.
To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get in Shape for Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. Each of their small-group sessions are tailored to each exerciser. The trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating 30 minutes of strength-training drills—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each student's abilities. Then, they do 25 minutes of cardio—the trainers might start beginners with a walk on the treadmill or light elliptical training, and challenge more advanced exercisers to high-intensity interval-training sessions for increased results.
The trainers supplement group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To track ladies' progress toward reaching their goals, the trainers measure their weight and body-fat percentage every two weeks.
When Dr. Sasson Moulavi worked in an emergency room, he noticed that more people in their 30s and 40s were experience heart attacks. In reaction to the trend, the bariatric physician developed a diet program that uses organic ingredients, triple-filtered water, and hunger-controlling foods. Now unexpected foods such as muffins, shakes, and soups, can help people lose weight. There is even a cookie diet, in which a healthy cookie—formulated to be a perfect balance of fiber, protein, and amino acids—aims to help clients lose several pounds per week.

The green-minded, chemical-free cleaners at Pure Palm Beach employ modern technology to help rid residential and commercial spaces of bacteria, dirt, and dander. Over three hours of cleaning, the trained, insured, and bonded staff divides and conquers households, wiping out debris and airborne allergens with a three-step process. A four-level HEPA filtration vacuum system, proven to be 43% more effective than commercial dirt-suckers, captures microscopic dust mites and pet dander, as well as messes waiting to happen in the form of mold or jawbreaker-stuffed piñatas. The grime annihilators then steam and sanitize appliances, countertops, floors, kitchens, and bathrooms with antimicrobial vapor-steam equipment, designed to disinfect surfaces in 0.5 seconds. Lastly, a series of vivid color-coded microfiber cloths are used to subdue any remaining impurities lurking on surfaces, leaving the interior of any home, apartment, or blanket fort sparkling clean.
Nicole Bergstrom is as artistic with babies as she is with tiramisu—although she rarely photographs them together. A former food stylist, Nicole and her husband Allan founded Kinder Image in 1994, and since then have captured the likenesses of 1000s of newborn babies. The shuttersmith specializes in studio sets as well as onsite photography, snapping timeless images as families and children frolic in parks, on the beach, or in their own homes in front of one of Kinder Images' 20 backdrops. Unique specialty packages can follow expectant mothers through each month of their pregnancies or revisit newborns throughout their first year, documenting the ways they grow and change from tiny cherubs to ringleaders of their local stroller gang. After each session, clients can pick their favorite edited shots during a personal viewing session, which Kinder Image prints in sizes ranging from desktop pictures to sprawling canvas wraps and wall art.
