Working out shouldn't feel like a chore, which is why every single fitness class at Power Studios emphasizes fun as well as results. Described as "fusion" fitness, most of these classes incorporate elements from a variety of workouts to create a dynamic, engaging experience. Movenze classes, for example, are inspired by aspects of contemporary dance, while Kick-Hopping blends kickboxing, dance, and cardio bootcamp and sets it to hip-hop music.
You won’t find the usual gym equipment you might see at most physical therapy offices at Dr. Shmuel Tatz’s studio. Instead, the office, overlooking a garden near Columbus Circle, showcases piles of books in six different languages, posters of the human anatomy, and most importantly, the doctor’s hands—a pivotal tool in his body tuning sessions. Osteotherapy is the mainstay of Dr. Tatz’s treatments, and he supplements this hands-on approach with yoga exercises, patient education, and perhaps even acupuncture. By “tuning” the body, the doctor can alleviate a variety of conditions, including chronic back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even broken ankles. It’s no wonder that famous faces, including Kathleen Turner, Lou Reed, and Isaac Stern, swear by Dr. Tatz.
Led by podiatric Dr. Sid Sharma and Dr. Shital Sharma, the medical doctors at One Podiatry provide a long-term solution to the fungal infections that cause toenails to appear thick, brittle, discolored, and otherwise unsightly. They accomplish this by using cosmetic laser systems, which delivers pulses of laser light energy through the nail to destroy the fungal growth without damaging the surrounding healthy tissues. The laser can eradicate the infection in as little as one 10-minute procedure, which allows healthy nails to regrow over the next two to four months?roughly the amount of time it takes a book club to discuss the thesaurus's newest edition.
