The certified trainers at 6 Degree Fitness believe that the best motivation for keeping up a gym routine is measurable results. Working to make their gym a welcoming, accessible place for everyone, regardless of fitness level, the professional staffers here offer intense personal training and group fitness sessions such as boot camp. Nutritional counseling is also available, helping members boost their metabolisms while they're shredding calories. The fitness center features a full array of weight-training and cardio machines—everything clients need to succeed along their path to better health.
Food is the body's fuel, and the staff at Fenix 5-4 centers its efforts on making sure that fuel is as powerful as possible. That's why their menu of juices and smoothies features wholesome, raw fruits and vegetables grown without pesticides. Wheatgrass is a special star here—the potent superfood comes in concentrated shots and sippable teas laced with honey. It's all in an effort help their guests eat and live more healthily, with more whole nutrients and less refined sugar and preservatives. Café offerings take the same approach—the team pairs many of their sandwiches with nitrate-free ham imported from Italy or meat-free substitutes that taste just like chicken or beef.
The masterminds behind Fenix 5-4 will soon be putting their wholesome efforts into a brother restaurant, The Rusty Monk. An upscale space that features a creative wine list and a slew of Belgian and German draft beers, the restaurant will nourish diners with the same life-giving nutrients in a gourmet seasonal menu.
The chefs at Los Cinco Puntos strive to correct the Americanized image of ground-beef tacos by marinating, braising, and frying a trove of traditional Mexican meats. Sizzling carne asada, spiced carnitas, and lengua, just to name a few, play starring roles in the eatery's authentic menu and get executive-producer credits for each movie made about the restaurant's quesadillas. Chefs roll these meaty specialties into burritos, layer them atop fluffy buns for their special tortas, or twist them in fried tortillas for perfectly crispy flautas. They also create tamales by the dozen, filling the husk-wrapped treats with a similar array of succulent meats.
