Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by inserting plant-based hormone pellets under the skin.

Nutrition coach Lori Haddle is very aware of how uncomfortable someone who is overweight can feel. As a child, she battled with body-image issues and struggled with her weight for years.
She made the decision to improve her life after having her first child, but it wasn't until 10 years later—when she started working with a health coach—that she finally figured out how her body responded to certain foods and diets. From that moment on, everything changed. She was able to make informed, guided decisions about health and nutrition, and was ultimately able to drop the weight, boost her energy, and even stop taking her cholesterol and acid-reflux medications.
To help others make the same changes that she did, Lori became a health and lifestyle coach. She follows the principles of bio-individuality—which teach that no one diet works for everyone—and she creates personal wellness plans that are as individually tailored as a tattoo listing the names of all your former teachers. Lori offers a variety of services for families, teens, and adults.
Lex Fitness owner and exercise physiologist Jeff Brown does more than merely lead a class or workout session. With over 12 years of experience under his belt, he and a trio of trainers motivate clients who want transform their lives outside the gym, adopting healthier lifestyles with next-level exercise regimens and good-nutrition. During the complimentary initial consultation with a trainer, clients divulge their fitness goals, from losing weight to defeating a cheetah in a foot race. The trainers then evaluate the client’s medical history and scope out physical terrains with body-fat testing, measurements, and cardio and strength tests. Clients then tackle a fitness plan tailored to their specific needs, building muscles with free weights and strength-training equipment, carving lean physiques in boot-camp classes, and torching calories on cardio machines backed by flat-screen TVs.
All classes take place at a new exercise studio, open seven days a week. With over 20 classes taking place a week at all times of the day, each session involves high-intensity cardio and strength workouts from college-educated trainers. Exercises include lunging, jumping, sprinting, and push-ups.
