When chiropractic physician Dr. Vincent Simokovich, DC, was 19 years old, he suffered a sports injury that would change his life forever. He was told he needed surgery on his lower back, but after watching both of his parents endure a lifetime of pain following their own back surgeries, Simokovich decided to forgo the invasive procedure. A relative introduced him to chiropractic care, which not only resolved his discomfort but also inspired a more-than-two-decade career helping others achieve similar relief. Simokovich is currently working on the completion of a diplomate in chiropractic neurology and metabolic function and directs Procare Wellness Center, where he and chiropractic physician Dr. Sam Galati, DC, take a multipronged approach to alleviating chronic health conditions.
Chiropractic physicians Simokovich and Galati—a former Air Force avionics specialist who is also currently pursuing further training in functional and metabolic medicine—maintain a multifaceted treatment philosophy that aims to unveil the underlying causes of illness. They combine neurological treatments such as spinal-decompression treatments, vibration therapy, olfactory stimulation, and adjustments to correct subluxation with lab testing designed to develop strategies based on a client’s metabolism. The duo also uses an innovative, laser-based technique to combat allergic responses commonly triggered by food, pet dander, or prolonged exposure to homework.
The certified wellness curators at Total Body Image work to evict freeloading impurities in an effort to prevent ailments including constipation, skin disorders, bloating, and arthritis. They achieve this through detoxifying holistic treatments such as colon-hydrotherapy that clears out the body's pipe works and infrared-sauna sessions that promote perspiration, thus removing toxins through the pores. To achieve healthy skin and appearances, they also use Endermologie technology to tone it and reduce cellulite, as well as a variety of anti-aging products and facial treatments.
With locations in 24 states, it’s safe to say Fitness 19’s approach to fitness has piqued exercisers’ interest. Each gym houses Life Fitness cardio machines and Hammer Strength strength-training equipment, as well as a staff of personal trainers who oversee one-on-one workouts and a group of caretakers and professional ranch hands who wrangle the kids' area. Certain locations also offer group classes such as the senior-oriented Silver Sneakers program.
The muffled thuds of boxing gloves pummeling headgear or backs blasting into floor mats resound throughout Strong Style's steel- and chain-link-clad gym. Child and adult classes fuse moves from the judo, muay thai, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu traditions as students throw punches and kicks or discuss international politics while grappling in two full-size boxing rings. Conditioning classes work the entire body with functional training tools such as weighted ropes, TRX suspension straps, and improbably huge truck tires, previously Paul Bunyan's rollerblade wheels. To zero in on individual fitness goals, clients may schedule personal-training sessions or design their own workouts using the facility's weights and cardio machines.
