Nationally certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor Vicki Tri welcomes all fitness levels to her indoor and outdoor boot camp sessions. Held throughout the week and on Saturday mornings, the boot camp classes combine aerobic and anaerobic conditioning for a cross-training effect. Participants alternate running and walking hill segments, plyometric drills, and traditional military exercises such as push-ups, jumping jacks, and intense saluting, as well as resistance training, abdominal work, and yoga stretches. Vicki can also modify the routines to accommodate those with physical limitations, such as knee or hip problems, and those new to a workout program. To eliminate stress on feet and legs, all outdoor sessions are in grassy areas and never on pavement, which is full of dangerous mother-back-breaking cracks. Vicki also provides nutritional advice to help participants lose weight, placing an emphasis on behavior modification and portion control. Her women's weight-loss support group meets indoors on Thursdays and combines 20 minutes of nutrition work with 40 minutes of exercise.
Therapeutic Concepts' owner Sherri Chapman, whose sports-massage prowess was previously employed to assuage the aches and pains of members of the Dallas Cowboys, leads a team of licensed massage therapists and medical massage practitioners who target the source of clients' pain and knead it into submission. During custom therapeutic massages, the massage therapist gently manipulates muscles' top layers, incorporating occasional stretching techniques and ice-dancing routines as she sees fit. The salutary strokes help increase joint flexibility and range of motion, easing lower-back pain, sports injuries, and chronic stiffness as a result of fibromyalgia. The therapeutic massages also thwart headaches, cooling craniums without gluing ice packs to eyebrows. At home, soak away stress with Therapeutic Concepts' homemade bath elixir, made with epsom salt, essential oils, and a touch of eucalyptus or lavender.
