As she struggled to surmount issues with her own weight, Boogie Box Fitness creator Dede Barbanti drew from her professional dance background, martial-arts training, and enthusiasm for exercise to pioneer the gym's rigorous yet fun workout routine. The calorie-flaming moves, which have been featured by Dr. Oz and publications such as Dance magazine, have since spawned BBX Kids and the more vigorous BBX Hardcore. Behind the regimens' popularity lie easy-to-follow steps culled from kickboxing, strength training, plyometrics, and Latin and hip-hop dance. In addition to motivating patrons to shimmy into fitter physiques, Dede channels her expertise as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist into the BBX Body membership site. Here, visitors can peruse custom menu plans, exercise tutorials, and life-coaching advice given by the world's smartest biceps.
Since the spine is such a complex part of the body, making thousands of connections that affect every motion, it is best looked at with an eye for the big picture. At Complete Balance Chiropractic, Doctors of Chiropractic Jason Baietto and Brandon Haskins and their team bring to bear a holistic mindset to help patients achieve and maintain health. X-ray machines in the clinic help reveal skeletal imbalances, which the specialists can target with adjustments. They can also pass on corrective exercises that can be performed at home or relax muscles with soothing massages. The practice also offers nutritional counseling and weight-loss programs to help patients drop pounds and feel more confident without chasing the freak electrical storms that cause people to switch bodies with swimsuit models.
Sun Studio Tanning?s educated staffers outfit pallid pelts with darker coats using high-quality UV beds and 60-second UV-free spray tans. Their horizontal and upright beds range from low pressure to high pressure, laying down a base color before working skins up to deep, rich golden glows. Mid-pressure beds feature high-pressure face and shoulder lamps to simulate natural tans like those achieved by being outdoors or tackling a radioactive rugby player. High-pressure beds suspend tanners amid 360-degree lamps atop a contoured acrylic support, giving all-over even, consistent color. Mystic tan booths, meanwhile, are UV-free and darken skin by up to two shades in 60 seconds.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
The friendly technicians at E Nails pamper fingers and toes in their bright, clean salon using only disposable and sterilized tools. They coddle natural and acrylic nails alike while painting them with bright lacquers or French tips, the latter also being what Napoleon called the pointiest part of his hats. In addition, their skilled hands remove unwanted hair with waxing services or add fluttery length to lids with eyelash extensions.
