Core Fitness & Spa tones and tightens patrons with a full slate of core-centric classes in the fields of Pilates, yoga, and TRX suspension training. In Pilates classes, a friendly, trained instructor leads students through conditioning exercises designed to strengthen and stabilize their body's centres while building long, lean muscles, releasing pent-up tension, and establishing proper muscle use. Hatha flow yoga, meanwhile, combines poses, breath control, and relaxation as a means of bringing bodies, minds, and the scales of justice into balance. First inspired by U.S. Navy SEALs conditioning, TRX suspension training uses a versatile set of straps dangling from the ceiling to perform hundreds of leveraged body-weight exercises, which sculpt sinews simply and effectively. Core Fitness & Spa offers morning and evening classes as well as a once-every-17-years option for cicadas. Consult the schedule for times and dates.

The only thing Megan Gollop loves more than beautifying her clients’ nails is the clients themselves. Between getting to know new faces during inaugural manicures and catching up with her growing circle of regulars over relaxed nail-art sessions, Megan finds time for familiarity during every service. With years of experience under her belt, Megan possesses the know-how to both deftly gussy up natural nails and work with faux nails from brands including LCN, Brisa, and Entity One. She specializes in custom nail art, which she tailors to fit each client’s personality and penchant for low-fiving. Aside from nail care, Megan also removes strands with lip and eyebrow waxing or adds them with the application of Permalash eyelash extensions.

They can help patients bid adieu to fine lines and age spots as they are escorted away during IPL photofacials or combat acne with a combination of green light, red light, and heat, and laser teeth-whitening treatments erase discoloration and graffiti left behind by vengeful spinach. Laser liposuction tightens stubborn areas and kick-starts collagen production with infrared light and radio frequencies, instigating a surge of cellular activity that helps tighten sagging skin and smooth out creases caused by cellulite deposits and powernaps on computer keyboards.
