Fitness, Friends and Fun is a gym on a mission. So named because founder Veronica Rosignoli believes that clients can love exercise if fitness routines are community-oriented and fun, this fitness center prides itself on being welcoming and accessible to all ages and fitness levels. Here, members will find cardio and strength-training machines, 37 group fitness classes per week, free weights, personal training, and nutritional counseling, as well as free childcare in the afternoons and early evenings.
Drs. Daniel and Kristi Newton first met in dental school in Memphis. After graduating and getting married, they began their careers in dentistry together on a Navajo reservation in Arizona, where they tended to the teeth of underprivileged patients. Now, they keep mouths in mint condition at Newton Cosmetic Dentistry. No matter the procedure, patients can take advantage of the duo’s comforting amenities, whether they’re watching flat-screen televisions during cleanings or donning wireless headphones that block out the sound of dental instruments or radio signals picked up by a set of braces.
20/20 Eyecare's optometrists examine eyes and dress them up in specialty lenses and designer frames. They can recommend gear for almost any pair of soul windows with a supply of scratch- and glare-resistant lenses as well as OSHA–certified safety glasses. Technicians offer free adjustments, perform minor repairs, and change glasses' oil, often with same- or next-day service.
As an Alcon–sponsored Dry Eye Center of Excellence, 20/20 Eyecare is notably equipped to treat dry-eye syndrome.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Getting fit on your own can be a drag—watching what you eat and fitting in daily exercise can start to feel like a full-time job. At Unlimited Possibilities, you're not alone. A trained staff of physician assistants and registered nurses create personalized weight-loss systems designed to help clients shed up to 1 pound a day. The medically supervised treatment is calculated based on medical history and weight-loss goals as well as current health issues, such as elevated cholesterol and sleep disorders including sleep apnea and sheep-counting fatigue.
To ensure each client can stick with the program and achieve long-term results, Unlimited Possibilities schedules regular check-in sessions and keeps an onsite nurse available to answer any medical questions. For additional support, you can be paired with another client on a similar diet plan to offer encouragement and commiseration. To boost results, Unlimited Possibilities may recommend the use of high-protein bars, vitamins, shakes, and other supplements.
