Members at Curves, a fitness center designed for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, strengthen bones, and increase metabolism. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to help create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Doctors of Chiropractic Freericks and Doyle make adjustments at two Discover Chiropractic locations, addressing pain, arthritis, stress, and whiplash in their discipline's signature, drug-free style. The practice takes on patients of most ages, including children and older adults, establishing it as a wellness center where one's entire family can receive treatment. And family is important to each of the clinic's practitioners, as each doctor lists time with their loved ones among their favorite off-hours activities. That approach informs the team’s care philosophy, affording the doctors firsthand perspectives on the physical demands of many of their patients’ up-tempo lifestyles. With adjustments, x-rays, and other modern equipment, the team is able to find the sources of patients’ pain and help them heal while getting them back to their regular routines with less discomfort.
