When Tina Cristiano signed up for her first Zumba workshop, the only thing she knew about the program was that it involved Latin dance moves. She soon became addicted to the high-energy workout and encouraged her friend, Brianne Galante, to give it a chance. Within a few years after their first encounter with Zumba, both Tina and Brianne became instructors and opened Feel Good Fitness to spread the health benefits of the rhythm-filled routines. Today, they teach Zumba?which blends hip-shaking dance steps and international music?to students of all ages and skill levels. Tina and Brianne meticulously select each song and craft routines by blending traditional Latin steps dance styles including salsa, cumbia, and merengue with moves inspired by belly dancing and African rhythms. When they aren't helping classes swagger toward svelte frames, Tina and Brianne bring their encouragement to the community at large, hosting charity events to support worthy causes and volunteering for shifts on local superhero teams.
Healthy living has been passion for Roselle Health Plus owner Keith Broadway all of his adult life. An avid fan of drinking nourishing juices and caring for himself, he spent a lot of his time keeping his body in peek condition, and sharing his knowledge with those in his community. His personal way of life eventually became his professional career when, in 2002, he left his job as a regional director of an employment agency to open Roselle Health Plus. Though he has since expanded his business into a larger location, his professional mission remains the same: to provide customers a resource for affordable health products and information for improving their personal health.
At his store, customers can peruse a bevy of healthy foodstuffs, from vitamins and herbs to supplements and cleansing drinks. The shop's juice bar keeps clients full and full of energy high by serving up nutrient-packed wraps, smoothies, and juices, saving them from resorting to unhealthy fast food burgers or gulps of air from a pizza shop oven vent.

Holistic techniques meet contemporary technology at Partners in Healing, where practitioners aim to improve clients' overall well-being through a balanced, multidisciplinary approach. The center's bodywork sessions often incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage modalities, treating the chronic pains caused by tension-laden musculature along the way. These sessions may also incorporate reflexology, Reiki, or pranic healing techniques to restore balance to the body's natural energy flow. For a more technological approach to wellness, practitioners also harness infrared light energy to improve clients' skin tone, shrink adipose cells, and reveal any images tattooed with invisible ink.
