At Leadership Fit, ISSA-certified personal trainer Eric Banks rules with an encouraging fist. During boot camp and personal-training sessions, he motivates exercisers through an assortment of football, weightlifting, and track and field drills. To complement the workouts, he also offers wellness coaching. In addition to providing a fitness plan, wellness coaching provides a meal plan that shows exercisers how many calories and grams of protein, fat, and carbohydrates they need to eat each day and how many they need to throw at the ice-cream man.
The concept behind Reformed Body is simple: two classes, each geared toward tightening and toning the body from head to toe. Choreographer and dancer Rachel Hosea founded the studio where she offers barre classes, which combines Pilates, ballet, and yoga.
Set to upbeat music, the “high-energy” barre classes tighten the entire body, but have the most prominent toning effect on the arms, thighs, abs, and glutes. The studio's pure Pilates classes—which are only offered twice weekly—challenge muscles with slow and steady movements. This boosts flexibility, encourages weight loss, and enhances the ability to easily fit into an air duct.
No man is an island, but you can still develop muscles that are hard as rock. The personal trainers at One2One Training Center have helped everyone from professional athletes to body builders get into the best shape of their lives. Anyone who goes through One2One's fitness program—natural athlete or otherwise—must be willing to admit the following: "I can't do it all by myself." With a dedicated staff of trainers so close at hand, that's not such a bad thing. Trainers work with individual clients to develop realistic fitness goals, then follow through with the help of advanced exercise equipment at one of three local facilities.
As a physical therapist, Carrie Moore worked to help patients rehabilitate their musculoskeletal injuries for five years. Throughout her practice, she noticed a troubling trend: a striking number of the dysfunctions were the result of insufficient or nonexistent fitness regimes. From this realization sprung RipQuest Boot Camp, Carrie's four-week offensive against sedentary lifestyles. Along with her staff of physical therapists and trainers, Carrie motivates groups of 20–30 toward lean and toned physiques via muscle confusion. This technique is based on fast-paced, dynamic workouts that target different muscle groups to prevent them from getting too accustomed to certain routines, thus rendering exercise ineffective. Tweaked to accommodate varying fitness levels, the boot camps rally sluggish bloodstreams with cardio, strength-training, speed, and agility exercises using a variety of fitness equipment. Patrons power through lunges to build solid quads, hurl medicine balls to bolster core and arm strength, and jump ropes for a calorie-annihilating burst of cardio. Boot campers should bring a water bottle, yoga mat or towel, jump rope, and hand weights or supportive gnomes that weigh 5 to 10 pounds.

Under the medical direction of Dr. David Braunreiter, the staff at You Only Younger provide skincare and beauty-enhancement services using only medically proven products. Licensed aestheticians perform skin-moisturizing facials to combat blemishes and signs of aging. Our injectors use dermal fillers and neuromodulators to erase fine lines and wrinkles. With technology such as the micro laser peel, the team can also remove outermost layers of skin to exfoliate with absolute precision ranging from 6 to 50 microns per treatment. Laser services also extend to tattoo and hair removal as well as fading stretch marks and spider veins that don’t look as cool as Spider-Man’s. To treat cellulite and loose skin on thighs, arms, and chins, they use The Reaction by Viora, a system featured on The Doctors.
