After meeting the physical demands of army training and working for two decades in the fitness industry, president of Custom Fitness Concepts Tom Kalka channeled his health and fitness savvy into CFC's training programs. His expert team of personal trainers visits homes and corporate offices to lead patrons in custom workout routines. Furthering fat-burning efforts, educational seminars on conditioning, nutrition, and orchestrating funerals for annihilated calories prime attendees for a salubrious lifestyle shift. CFC instructors also chisel away unwanted fat with a boot-camp series, whose ever-shifting medley of calisthenics and strength training was deemed the country's second-best boot camp in 2008 by Exercise TV.
There's no mistaking the purpose of the dozens of 150-pound punching bags dangling from the red metal frames that span LA Boxing Sterling's floor. Whether members consider themselves professional fighters or aerobic exercisers, the gym is a place to punch things. Under the watchful eye of mixed martial arts instructors, students pound away at bags with fist and foot, elevating their heart rates to fulfill the cardio-conditioning portion of the gym's signature national program. Participants occasionally pick up weights or jump ropes, but it's all part of the training to get back to the bag and make the stuffing rue the day it turned down the chance to fill a wild teddy bear.
Dr. Joanna Barnett and her associates at EyeDocDulles assess and correct eye issues from their Sterling offices. After a comprehensive vision examination, visual acuity and refraction tests discern eye health and ability. A Computer Vision Syndrome screening pinpoints symptoms, from dry eyes to headaches, which may be linked to extended computer gazing, enabling the doctor to prescribe a specific course of action for relief. Patrons shed their face-frames during a contact-lens fitting, and stroll out of the office toting prescriptions for both contacts and eyeglasses, as well as a month of Extended Premium Wear contacts that let faces finally show off their nose-bridge tattoos.
Dr. Roy Heron, a bariatric specialist and veteran member of numerous local medical societies, helps patients attain svelte, healthy physiques through personalized weight-loss plans that highlight his signature low-carbohydrate philosophy. Backed by a motivating staff of nutritional counselors, Dr. Heron had performed more than 1,100 SmartLipo procedures and lends his extensive medical wisdom to the customized programs, each of which is tailored around clients’ unique health histories, dietary habits, and jumping-jack preferences. Tools such as BMI assessments, B12 injections, and appetite suppressants assist patients throughout the program, and minimally invasive laser treatments can help augment results by trimming lingering fat. To further fortify results, Dr. Heron can give thoughtful recommendations on valuable local services, such as health spas, fitness clubs, superhero meetings, and dermatology offices.
