Camp Gladiator founder Ally Davidson?s childhood obsession with the outdoors and sports led her to pursue a degree in exercise physiology. After her 2008 win on the TV show American Gladiators, Ally decided to share her love of fitness with the world at large. Camp Gladiator reflects Ally's passion for fitness in its mission, which espouses their desire "to positively impact the physical fitness and ultimately the lives of as many people as possible." During Camp Gladiator Total Transformation, participants lose weight and gain energy in a friendly, positive environment. Over four-weeks, trainers focus on accountability, competition, motivation, and fun at multiple locations.

If you ask a professional cheerleader how she got her toned physique, agile limbs, and powerful muscles, she might point you to Jay and Lin Johnson. The husband-and-wife duo are the brains behind Jay Johnson's Boot Camp Fitness?an exercise program designed to slim waistlines and pump up muscles of students of all abilities, from fitness newbies to professionals and prestigious clients such as the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. They have also introduced the program to national audiences through numerous television appearances, including Dr. Phil's Ultimate Weight Loss Challenge.
Drawing from their extensive training in the US Army and years of fitness experience, the pair and a staff of elite trainers?including professional football players and mixed martial artists?lead boot-camp programs in the Dallas area. Within parks, fields, and parking lots, they conduct high-intensity workouts, keeping patrons engaged with constantly varied regimens, along with games, obstacle courses, and scavenger hunts. They focus on functional training throughout the sessions, challenging students to heave barbells, flip tractor tires, and lug fire hoses.
The trainers also offer a specialized cheerleading boot camp ideal for high-school teams training for upcoming seasons or assistant grocery managers seeking ways to motivate their teams of disillusioned bag boys.
The business acumen of Radiant Skin Clinic’s medical aesthetician has been noted by the Globe and Mail, and she has appeared on the Global Regina Morning Show to discuss summer skincare practices, which most dermatologists agree is even more necessary for beautiful skin than sleeping face-down in a bowl of goat’s milk.
The team of dedicated medical professionals at Radiant Skin Clinic employs laser technology to execute a wide array of appearance enhancing services. Photofacial treatments use beams of light to tighten visages, whereas fractional laser skin resurfacing allays wrinkles and blotches, leaving behind smoothly repaved swaths of dermis. The clinic eradicates sagging with Botox injections and helps patrons work toward slimmer silhouettes with VelaShape contouring treatments. IllumniWave laser hair rejuvenation invites fuzz to grow faster than a baby cheetah fed with only multi-grain cheerios, and those who would rather bid hair adieu can enlist long-lasting laser hair-removal treatments.

Cypress Medispa resident physician Dr. Amrit Thandi has experienced the evolution of lasers over the past decade by serving as a Luminary Advisor for Alma Lasers Inc.?the brand she still relies on to tighten slack skin, remove hair, and rejuvenate damaged complexions. The technology helps her maintain a practice that avoids invasive procedures, although she can perform minor surgeries at her office or refer patients to other specialists within the North Cypress Medical Center.
A graduate of Dayanand Medical College in Punjab, India, Dr. Thandi completed her residency in family practice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Today, she practices general medicine and performs cosmetic enhancements with equal care aided by an aesthetician and a medical assistant. Dr. Thandi meets with each of her patients and has a hand in every procedure, from cosmetic injections to preventative care exams. The two aspects of the practice seem to balance out. Gentle body-sculpting treatments can be incorporated into a weight management regime, and up-to-date medical acuity can address dermatological concerns such as psoriasis or an embarrassing tattoo of the Pythagorean theorem.
In one room, skincare specialists swath bodies in an all-natural seaweed gel, sprinkle on a potpourri of nourishing herbs, and let infrared heat draw out their toning and detoxifying qualities. In another, acupuncturists realign clients' chi and fine-tune their physical and emotional fields. And behind any door, massage therapists may be kneading tense muscles, chiropractors may be adjusting injured backs, or aestheticians may be resurfacing complexions to a radiant glow with oxygen facials.
A staff of professionals from many areas of expertise come together under the roof and stress-zapping force field of Balance the Clinic, where they work together to bolster physical and emotional health with natural remedies and clinically tested treatments. In addition to consulting with any of these staff members, guests also can retreat into the privacy of an infrared sauna. From a private changing room, individuals or couples step into a hypoallergenic, odor-free basswood chamber equipped with a sound system that sets the sauna gently vibrating in time with relaxing music.
