Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment.

For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling.
For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
Dr. Mark Woolley dedicates himself fully to podiatric and orthopedic care, helping patients overcome foot and ankle issues with noninvasive, minimally invasive, and surgical treatment options. His expansive roster of services covers a wide range of conditions, such as nerve pain, pulled tendons, and toenail fungus.
Youthful Image Medical Spa is located within the Ogden Women's Clinic, and the staff treats each aesthetic procedure with the care and professionalism due a medical procedure. The attentive aestheticians are supervised by onsite physicians as they perform traditional spa treatments alongside technologically enhanced beauty services. Before a 30-minute spa facial, an aesthetician carefully analyzes the client's skin type to craft a facial protocol that addresses individual beauty concerns such as dry skin, acne, or the fine lines that result from wearing clothespins as accessories. For more intensive treatment, clients can choose one of five medical-grade chemical peels, each of which exfoliates faces with a mix of acidic agents calibrated to treat conditions including acne, fine lines, and sun spots. The technicians harness the multitasking power of concentrated light during laser treatments including spider-vein removal, hair reduction, and photofacials. During each noninvasive procedure, the technician guides a laser beam across the skin to obliterate unwanted veins, spots, and hair without the downtime or pain of surgery.
Dr. Kris Davis and Dr. Daniel Davenport of Spinal Care Center of Utah bolster clients’ back and bodily health through holistically focused chiropractic treatments. Spinal columns undergo careful scrutiny during consultations in which the docs chart complaints and conduct orthopedic, neurologic, and spinal examinations, taking all necessary x-rays to check for bone stability and souvenir seashells posing as vertebrae. Their massages simultaneously unload muscle-held stresses and unwind tissue knots, while their K-Laser saturates tissues with a combination of specific wavelengths of light that help biostimulate body repair. These stimulating sessions can increase natural bodily processes to accelerate tissue repair, improve vascular activity, and speed recovery from whiplash incurred at the office’s annual rolling-chair demolition derby.
Propulsion Pilates' instructors rely on the familiar Pilates contraptions that fill most studios, but they alter the time-tested workout regimen by incorporating it into a more modern style of circuit training. They combine sequences on the Reformer, Tower, and Wunda Chair with occasional cardio exercises and kettlebell work, creating challenging sessions that manage to refine technique while bolstering strength and flexibility. To keep classes teetering on the cuttingest of edges, the instructors attend at least two Pilates workshops every year to update their mental cache of fitness tricks, but they always leave a little disappointed that a flying Reformer machine appears to be at least another six months off.
In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
