The coaches at CrossFit 631 help students get into shape with a fitness program designed around CrossFit’s philosophy of broad, general, inclusive, functional fitness.

Example exercises include Olympic-style weightlifting, performing dips on suspended rings, rowing, and exercising the core with medicine balls. CrossFit is scalable for students of all ages and fitness levels.
Lifetime Laser is a beauty-boosting medical spa that maintains sterling faces with a vast menu of skincare services. A Botox cosmetic injection treatment smoothes faces marred with frown lines and crevices from sleeping on keyboards. This Groupon is good for 10 units of Botox or for $200 toward a syringe of Radiesse, an injectable product for enhancing lips or reducing the appearance of some scars, frown lines, and nasal furrows ($395). Cluttered pores can be unpacked with a microdermabrasion facial treatment, which deploys an army of mild abrasives to coerce loitering dead skin cells to decamp, softening skin and fading age spots. For treating freckles, acne scars, and unsightly spider veins, customers can choose the photo facial to blast away facial foibles with light and radio frequencies that improve skin texture and head-bobbing dance endurance at discotheques. Lifetime Laser typically recommends three photo facials for best results.
