Snap Fitness, bustling with cardio and strength-training gear, throws open the doors to its facilities 24/7. Before exercisers put sneakers to treadmills or lift their first weights, staff meet with them to talk about their fitness goals before suggesting personalized fitness plans based on clients' strength, cardio condition, and bionic-limb manufacturers. The gym keeps members motivated with regular check-in calls and demystifies healthful eating with custom online meal plans designed by nutritionists. Staff also forestall exercise-routine boredom by working individually with clients on a routine basis.
At Touch of Sol, a licensed massage therapist relaxes mortal coils during massages and five different naturally derived body wraps. Inside a cozy room draped with a floral rug, the relaxation massage deploys nimble fingers over epidermal canvases, unfurling light to moderate pressure for overall stress relief. The therapeutic massage employs greater pressure to reach muscles deep beneath the skin’s surface, relieving tension and pain caused by somersaulting to and from work. Alternatively, clients may opt for a choice of five 75-minute body wraps. The Dead Sea mud formula is designed to decrease inflammation, and the sea-algae mud treatment is designed to purge toxins, stimulate circulation, and improve skin elasticity. After the mud concoction is slathered over the body, a layer of hot towels helps hides to soak up the vitamins while disguising them from lovelorn swamp things. A quick shower rinses clients clean before the therapist lavishes skin with lotion for extra hydration.
The horseback lesson takes place at Sunflower Farms, which boasts 170 acres of pristine wooded lakefront farmland, ideal for galloping horses and running a mildly successful Internet business. Start the two-hour session with an hour-long ground lesson that helps riders get to know their horses, covers the basics of riding equipment, and teaches horse-grooming methods. Once riders feel comfortable enough around a horse to not be overwhelmed with the desire to challenge it to a staring contest, they'll saddle up and ride for a full hour, outfitted with a certified helmet from Saddlers Row. Sunflower Farms instructors will work with riders of any skill level, from beginner to competition level.
