After meeting the physical demands of army training and working for two decades in the fitness industry, president of Custom Fitness Concepts Tom Kalka channeled his health and fitness savvy into CFC's training programs. His expert team of personal trainers visits homes and corporate offices to lead patrons in custom workout routines. Furthering fat-burning efforts, educational seminars on conditioning, nutrition, and orchestrating funerals for annihilated calories prime attendees for a salubrious lifestyle shift. CFC instructors also chisel away unwanted fat with a boot-camp series, whose ever-shifting medley of calisthenics and strength training was deemed the country's second-best boot camp in 2008 by Exercise TV.
In 2001, husband-and-wife team Todd and Anne realized two of their biggest dreams: they started a family and opened The Bike Lane. Throughout the store, bikes by Trek, Electra, Felt, Mirraco, and Surly lean on their kickstands alongside accessories such as water bottles, bells, or high-heeled spokes for date night. Certified staffers leap down from their stationary penny-farthings to perfectly match riders with new bikes through fit services that are free with purchase of a triathlon/TT, road, or mountain bike. In the repair shop, mechanics with 40 years of combined experience service bikes, overhauling brakes, installing parts, or custom-fitting wheels. To stay connected with its network of riders, The Bike Lane organizes educational safety events, advocates for bicycle-friendly communities, and sponsors more than 50 cycling events per year.
The board-certified dermatologist Dr. Theodore Sebastien and his team of certified dermatology assistants and technicians rejuvenate weary neck toppers with chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Like the restoration of ancient art or an upgrade of Mr. Potato Head features, the chemical peel's solution reveals a newer façade by removing the epidermis’s top layer. Treat sunspots, uneven skin tone, and upside-down frowns with the restorative session that promotes cell growth and can produce healthier-looking skin. The microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates the epidermis sans chemicals or lasers. Minimize the appearance of scarring, fine lines, and sun-damaged skin with the therapy's gentle resurfacing, done with microdermabrasion crystals and past-revealing tarot cards.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Kim Doud Galli and her skillful staff youthify beauty-seekers with custom chemical peels. During each 30-minute treatment, technicians sheathe epidermises in a naturally derived glycolic-acid solution designed to slough off superficial layers of dead skin, fading fine lines and to-do lists scrawled on cheeks in ballpoint pen. Clients can also opt to magnify results with multiple peels. Afterward, some faces may experience mild peeling as the skin regenerates, eventually revealing a refreshed complexion as a chorus of pores sings a breathy “ahhhh.”
Reston Pilates Studio's ardent instructors dispense body-toning modalities in an intimate workout environment during their one-hour mat classes. Unlock Pilates' core-boosting power and graceful artistry during each intimate session as instructors foster familiarity by capping class size at 10 participating pupils and two observing mannequins. Classes run once a day Monday through Friday and alternate between morning and evening start times. In addition to group sessions, Groupon holders also undergo one-on-one body boosting during a private lesson as teachers examine students for strengths, weaknesses, and evidence that they might be the reincarnation of Joseph Pilates.
This community-focused, flow-based yoga center boasts a plethora of calming to rigorously bendy sessions steeped in the mind-body-spirit trifecta. All fitness levels are welcome, from those only familiar with the sedentary couch pose to those fluent in back-bending crane-warrior stances. Fledgling flexibles can ease into beginners yoga, focusing on fundamental moves and proper alignment, and those with a foundation of supple stretchiness can nonviolently tackle Vinyasa Two, a session concentrated on more vigorous movement linked with sun salutations and hat doffs to the moon. Both the Reston and Great Falls locations offer a variety of classes and class times for pliable aspirants and their limberness-seeking limbs.
