Charter Fitness encourages exercise sleuths of all ages and fitness levels to uncover toned silhouettes in a television-lined strength training and cardio center. Before embarking on a journey to a world of muscle, Charter Fitness' experienced staff members can demonstrate the safest way to use the equipment. After that, guests roam the facility in search of stretching and core-training zones stocked with mats, medicine balls, and stability balls, which prepare the body to balance on tight ropes or wobbly garden hoses. Charter's clean, modern facilities are equipped with personal showers, locker rooms, and tanning booths (where available, prices vary) for pampering fatigued physiques. Personal training is available for an extra fee.
The space at Studio Evolve serves a dual purpose. Half the time, the purple-walled studio with dark, glossy floors serves as the calming, heated sanctuary for yogis who stretch and center during hot yoga. The rest of the time, the wall-length mirror reflects the colorful lights that illuminate the high-energy movements of Zumba classes in full swing.
Albuquerque Teeth Whitening’s technicians help cultivate lustrous, radiant grins with the PearlBrite professional whitening system, often used by dentists. A special LED light emits rays from the blue end of the spectrum, stimulating a peroxide whitening gel into erasing discoloration. The powerful kits—all made in the United States—can beget smiles that stay up to eight shades whiter for one year, depending on each person’s oral hygiene and mud-eating habits.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Straight Chiropractic's doctors and assistants team up against pains in the neck, back, and spine, drawing on years of experience and chiropractic certification to rid bones of uncomfortable aches and potentially damaging misalignment. A new-patient exam identifies problems in need of spinal solving. A spinal-thermography scan uses infrared imaging to assess nervous-system function and identify misbehaving body parts that could cause future pain, illness, or mandatory minutes in the timeout corner. After the initial exam, clients can take advantage of the two adjustments by sticking around that day or scheduling them within the next week. If the doctor thinks an x-ray is necessary to determine what’s ailing your life vessel, up to four x-rays will be taken as needed.
