  • JOOS
    After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn?t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again. Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition?s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits. In flavors such as Green Power, Citrus, and Glow, these wholesome juices teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10?14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits and veggies. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 3?21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.

  • Challenge Rocks
    Challenge Rocks may sound like an intimidating name for a rock-climbing gym, but rest assured: the gym's bouldering and adventure courses are only as challenging as the climber wants them to be. While the gym's staff believes in always pushing oneself to climb higher and faster, they know that everyone takes climbing at their own pace. That's why their indoor rock wall offers a variety of routes for all skill levels, many of which change regularly. Of course, like starting a giant bonfire, climbing is always more fun outdoors. Once you've built up the strength and confidence necessary to tackle real-life boulders, you can join a staff-led trip to the White Mountains for some rock climbing the way nature intended.

  • The Iron Way
    An exercise regimen coupled with poor nutrition is like a hoarder?s home with a fresh coat of paint?the outside may look great now, but eventually everyone will notice that the inside is filled with junk. In that spirit, The Iron Way creates comprehensive fitness programs administered by personal trainers and nutrition coaches. The small-group setup keeps costs lower than with traditional one-on-one training, but students still have enough autonomy to receive tailored instruction.

  • Nancy H Starr
    Dr. Nancy H. Starr, who graduated from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in only three years and has been in practice for nearly 30 years, leads a team of experienced technicians at Starr Family Dentistry. Her Invisalign treatments eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of the patient’s mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift smiles into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.

  • Path to Euphoria Yoga Studio
    Nicole McCarthy was searching for a balance in her high-pressure career and busy family life and heard that exercise was a great way to burn off stress. She tried a few fitness classes, but once she tried yoga, she became hooked. She found that in addition to increasing her strength and flexibility, yoga helped her achieve the inner calm she was looking for. Motivated to share these benefits with others, she became a certified yoga instructor and eventually opened Path to Euphoria Yoga Studio. Nestled within a pastel-yellow, colonial-style home, the studio is bathed in warm terra-cotta shades and soft lighting. Here, she guides her students through a series of postures as soothing music and aromatherapy drifts through the air. Most classes last 60 minutes and are limited in size to ensure each student receives personal attention.

  • American Kempo Karate Academy
    American Kempo Karate Academy founder Mark DiNino is an eighth-degree black belt?and a father. In fact, three of his own children train at the academy, meaning the South Shore native shares many of the same hopes and concerns as other parents of AKKA students. But he also understands the benefits children can reap from the academy's program, which since 1995 has improved fitness and increased self-confidence, discipline, and concentration. Of course, kids aren't the only one's who can benefit from a boost in self-esteem, which is why AKKA also offers an adult program, where grownups can achieve similar gains and release stress brought on by their job or lack of homework.
