The expert fitness instructors at Sweat Fitness's Philadelphia-area locations help students of all ages and fitness levels track down svelter silhouettes with Precor training equipment and fat-roasting classes—including yoga, Pilates, spinning, Zumba, and kickboxing. Committed to fostering a supportive community for all fit seekers, the trainers devote individual attention to each patron to help them meet their fitness goals. Clients first undergo a body-fat analysis to assess their preworkout fitness level and to help them gauge their progress throughout their journey. During group sweat sessions, patrons can tone their bodies in classes such as Group Power and Power Pump, which blast subdermal meat suits via squats, lunges, and curls. A full aquatics center welcomes guests to dive into relatively narwhal-free waters for swimming lessons, triathlon training, and pool parties.
Acupuncture is a gentle application of specifically placed thin needles that promote healing and decrease pain. This ancient modality dates back to 5000 BC and is currently world renowned for its affects on the reduction of pain.
Dr. Faustino certainly has his chiropractic specialties—which range from subluxation correction to sports injury rehab—but he also takes a holistic approach to wellness. That means he treats the entire person and offers preventive treatments rather than focusing on symptoms only when they arise. For the past 25 years, he's relied on this foundation while adjusting spines. He and his trained staff at Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center tend to patients at all stages of life, from infancy to those already in their second robot bodies.
Dr. Lenny Roberts is a champion of perseverance. After making it to the 1993 NCAA Division III National Football Championship, he underwent his sixth knee surgery and was forced to call it quits. But "quit" isn't exactly in Dr. Roberts's vocabulary. He forged ahead to pursue a career in amateur boxing and won a silver medal in the 1999 Georgia Games before conquering the San Diego marathon in 2006 and the Philadelphia Triathlon in 2008. After earning his chiropractic doctorate from Life University, Dr. Roberts fused sports with medicine in what some might consider a dream job: chiropractic consultant for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Today, Dr. Roberts treats patients with the same care that he would afford an NBA player or a baby who has been drafted into the NBA. His chiropractic services help to improve spinal biomechanics, implementing techniques ranging from spinal decompression to extremity adjustments for joints such as shoulders, ankles, and wrists. He also works closely with his staff to help relieve pains, induce relaxation, and rejuvenate the skin with massage therapy and beauty treatments.
When he isn't mastering endurance sports, healing NBA players, or diffusing suspicions that he is Batman, Dr. Roberts volunteers his time for Habitat for Humanity and Little League baseball.
Unlike most salons, Wynnewood Salon is not in the business of styling hair. Instead, board-certified practitioner Emily Jones uses electrolysis to rid the skin of unwanted strands. She administers treatments to areas across the body—the hairline, chest, legs, hands, toes—and to patients with all skin types and hair colors.
The experienced staff at New Image and Wellness aim to help patients look and feel their best through a total wellness package of nonsurgical treatments. The staff performs laser-light therapy, as well as a range of quick, easy, and noninvasive beauty treatments: comfortable lipo-laser treatments target fat cells to remove inches, facial sculpting nonsurgically chisels faces or shaves mustaches off Michaelangelo’s David, and whitening treatments blanch teeth quickly and effectively.
