Globally Preferred Academy trains cadres of young cosmeticians to enhance brows, eyes, and lips with permanent pigmentation. Their licensed technicians first consult with clients hoping for claret-red lips and dramatic winks, then deftly embellish faces during appointments that last 1.5–2 hours. Globally Preferred Academy’s staff also combats wrinkles and blemishes with dermal rolling and skin needling, both treatments that aim to promote collagen production, and their synthetic extensions elongate lashes in a variety of colors.
Mount Auburn Club strives to be a one-stop shop for fitness, wellness, and recreation. Members can sweat as they cheer on their favorite infomercials in the cardio theater, plunge into the salt-filtrated lap pool, or practice their tennis strokes out on 11 indoor and outdoor courts, which were featured on the Tennis Channel. Professional fitness instructors pump upbeat music for more than 90 group fitness classes each week, from Les Mills classes such as BodyPump to spinning and Zumba. The mind/body classes include five styles of yoga, tai chi, and ballet barre. Joint-friendly aquatics classes take place in the four-lane, 75-foot-long lap pool overlooking the gardens and deck. Swimmers can recover in the whirlpool after practicing their synchronized doggy paddling.
The club's personal trainers help members map out fitness plans centered on achieving their personal goals. After they've worked out on equipment such as TRX Suspension Training bands or BOSU balls, exercisers can head to the café for one of Chef Julio's healthful creations or submit themselves to the spa team’s capable hands for massages, facials, and other pampering treatments.
Though weight loss may seem like an individual pursuit, it’s a team activity at Medithin Weight Loss Clinics. A medical staff, many of whom have participated in the program themselves, walk each patient through the weight-loss process, with the use of FDA-approved or all-natural appetite suppressants, checking weight loss, BMI, and vital signs in weekly checkups, and providing psychological support. They complement this medical assistance with a eating plan geared toward fat burning. For maximum effectiveness, the team tailors each component to the patient’s goals, medical history, and current physical condition, as assessed by a nurse during an initial appointment, rather than just a check for visible band-aids.
Though she's a relatively recent inductee to the club of "dog people"—adopting the first of her two canine kids in 2009—Kate de Felice has quickly attuned herself to pooches’ needs. With an arsenal of organic shampoos, she cleanses each pet’s skin and coat before toweling them dry by hand, keeping the bath time as gentle as possible. Kate's subsequent grooming sessions include a variety of localized spruce-ups—including nail trimming, ear cleaning, teeth brushing, and elegant beehive hairdos—each of which she also offers à la carte.
