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.
Thinking of the city rarely calls images of fog-ringed mountains and wolf-filled forests to mind, but Discover Outdoors?formerly known as Outdoor Bound?turns these scenes into reality. Owner, avid outdoorsman, and eight-time marathon runner Kirk Reynolds makes sure of it. He and a staff of experts?each a licensed trail guide and Wilderness First Responder or Wilderness EMT?temper the stress of city living with day trips to nearby natural enclaves and weekend camping excursions. The getaways thrill with activities such as hiking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and horseback riding.
International trips, meanwhile, quench a thirst for life-defining adventures beyond trips to the grocery store during peak Saturday hours. Among them: hikes up famed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, treks to Machu Picchu in Peru, and jaunts through the Canadian Rockies. Some of the journeys even grant travelers the opportunity to fundraise for a worthy cause as they explore.
Daralyse Lyons, founder of Emotional Yoga, knows the recovery powers of yoga firsthand. After struggling for years with an eating disorder, anxiety, and OCD, she began practicing yoga to help release some of her emotional pain and trauma. But yoga alone wasn't enough—it helped her recognize the pain, but not release it. So she combined her yogic work with the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), an emotional acupressure method developed by Gary Craig. EFT helps unblock negative energy through talk therapy and pressure-point tapping. With the joint help of yoga and EFT, she had a healing breakthrough. Today, she shares the benefits of what she's experienced with students at Emotional Yoga. Students can opt for private, couples, and group sessions—both for emotional yoga and yoga sessions.
Just like construction workers, the podiatrists at Kentner Podiatry are experts at building healthy foundations. Across two state-of-the-art facilities, the docs draw upon cutting edge technology such as FDA- approved Nd:Yag lasers, which set their sights on onychomycosis, or nail fungus. Beyond treating conditions such as athletes foot, ingrown toenails, and piggies that won't share their roast beef, the specialists are also well suited to help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with bunions, tendonitis, and flat foot, or to design a custom healing regimen for athletes suffering from sprains and other injuries.
At Lyceum Physical Medicine, we know that each patient is an individual, each condition is different and that each person needs specific care. Our protocols have the ability to restore normal function and create lasting health using an integrated approach to neck, back and spinal injuries.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
