At Footprints to Wellness, owner Paula Jurko knows that in order to take the right steps toward wellness, one starts with the feet. She helps alleviate pain and symptoms of health concerns by applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. She also preforms raindrop therapy, which applies nine essential oils into the spine and feet to help the body align structurally and electrically. Along with raindrop therapy, she preforms Reiki to balance the body and release tension.
Scheduled daily throughout central Ohio, Fit Body Boot Camp sessions combine a supportive group environment with individual attention to target calories with cardio exercises and a fiery zeal for fitness. The enthusiastic trainers encourage a commitment of at least three to five sessions per week for both the one-month boot camp and the two-week Fat Flush system, which comes with a diet plan to help participants reach their goal of squeezing spinach directly from the can. These sessions combine the benefits of cardio, weights, and core training to develop an all-over, effective workout. The high-energy, goal-oriented exercises are calibrated to individual needs and abilities, and the early morning and late afternoon sessions are easily integrated into a busy schedule of nine-to-five jobs and moonlighting as an oil baron.
The Cachet Salon has treated lads and ladies to rejuvenating makeovers and style resuscitations for the last 21 years. Strand sculptors Brandy, Christie, and Nina attack sloppy mops with skilled chops to create comely cranial topiary, offering an array of services to clients in need of both minor maintenance and major overhauls. Men’s and women’s haircuts with styling begin with careful coiffeur appraisals before the scissor-wielding snip savants commence their artful cutting ($39). Eyebrow tinting ($15) and eyebrow arch waxing ($17) accentuate the ocular canopies that keep the forehead from invading the rest of the face. A semipermanent coloring treatment using Paul Mitchell products ($48) is a wonderful, simple conduit for reinventing a tired look or establishing differentiation between twins who refuse to wear nametags.
"This is the coolest thing I've ever seen!"Whenever proprietor Laura Knipfer hears kids say things like this about Sky Zone Columbus, it makes her heart soar. It’s the same feeling she remembers having the first time she visited a Sky Zone franchise. The moment happened when she and her family gave another location of the indoor trampoline park a try while on vacation in St. Louis. That afternoon, each person emerged drenched in sweat and beaming with smiles. On the heels of those enjoyable moments, she knew she had to open her own location near home, an endeavor that has also earned accolades from Columbus Parent magazine.Both flat and angled trampolines cover approximately 10,000 square feet of the cavernous space, all catapulting kids and grownups under the watchful eye of safety monitors. In the main arena, jumpers freestyle on 33 trampolines, doing flips, belly flops, or directing traffic. A smaller court hosts players launching soft balls at each other during dodge-ball games and a pit of foam cushions cannonball dives. Non-jumpers can watch the action safely from platforms at the entrance to the arena or benches scattered throughout the facility. A concession stand restores nutrients spent jumping with pizza by the slice from Jet's, warm pretzels, and Clif bars, which can also be burned off in trampoline fitness classes and birthday parties at the facility.
