At Vanity Weight and Beauty Institute, patients can lose weight around their middles through E-Lipo treatments, an FDA-cleared procedure that combines two kinds of electrical stimulation. To kick off treatments, cranial electrical stimulation is applied across the earlobes to bring about a state of relaxation. This treatment has also been known to help treat insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Next, bioelectrical stimulation is applied to the abdomen to burn calories and slim down and tone waists.

Viewed from above, Basic Training?s fitness boot camps look like a track meet designed by worker ants. On the ground, participants bound over hurdles, crawl through obstacle courses, and wield heavy objects such as sandbags, sledgehammers, and beer kegs. In actuality, these workouts are designed by a human fitness expert: Rodney Carson, a drill instructor who has trained at military bases such as the Army National Guard Camp San Luis Obispo and the United States Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego.
Based on the Marine Corps physical-training regimen, his boot camps propel participants toward fitness goals while boosting their confidence and breaking their bad habits. Many workouts draw from his experiences preparing for track-and-field events, such as the International Masters Track Circuit, where he won three gold medals for his speedy footwork. Calories melt during his boot camps? sprints and fartlek runs, and bodyweight exercises make muscles more ripply than an ocean preparing a shaken martini. During field-meet days, dodge ball, kickball, and tug-of-war battles jump-start workouts with an extra dose of fun.
Experienced instructors lead each session, inspiring the group with friendly shouts, hearty claps, and tips on form and technique. In addition to helming camps for civilians of all fitness levels, Rodney and his crew train first responders, such as police officers, firefighters, and soldiers, during special-operations sessions.
Clinical aesthetician and visual artist Sherry approaches each client's skin as if it were a canvas, painstakingly attending to it until it flourishes with a glowing beauty. Inside ZÁD Salon & Spa, her full-service, ultramodern salon—reminiscent of an art gallery with white walls interrupted by bright flounces of color—she uses her 20 years of international experience and the Dermalogica skincare line to design and customize facials, body wraps, and hair-removal treatments. She’s joined by master hair stylists, a nail technician, and massage therapist, who create masterpieces similar to the artwork adorning the walls or the one-act plays put on by the cleaning crew at night.
