Dream Body blasts fat cells with YOLO Curve LipoLaser technology to refine body contours and reduce unsightly cellulite. During each 20- to 30-minute noninvasive procedure, concentrated light permeates an insulated region—such as the chin, waist, abs, back, thighs, or arms—reaching the subcutaneous fat layer to release fatty acids and triglycerides. A subsequent 10 minutes on a vibration platform aims to mimic the effects of an hour-long workout. The vibration machine stimulates bodily functions, burning the released fat stores and expelling them through the body's natural excretory processes or prepaid ground shipping. Due to its nonsurgical nature, lipo laser incurs zero discomfort, downtime, or need to make peace with your appendix, and clients may notice visual results from just one treatment.

Pole Fitness Studio owner and operator Fawnia Dietrich is a pioneer of modern pole-dancing fitness. She cut her teeth as a professional exotic dancer, learning the sultry art as she went along, like all the other dancers. She wondered why there wasn’t a place to learn these difficult moves and was motivated to start teaching. Soon after, she opened her own pole-dancing studio, something not common to the world of 1994, much like time-traveling hovercrafts. Fawnia has continued on as a force in the industry, producing the first instructional pole-dance video in 1998—followed by six more videos—and creating the pole-dance instructor-certification course. Thanks to her chiseled physique, she has also been featured in three spreads in Muscle & Fitness magazine.
She now leads a team of instructors in teaching a variety of flirty fitness styles, including burlesque, pole-, lap-, chair-, floor-, and dance classes. Each 55-minute class takes place in their spacious studio, where 17 poles stand ready to hold ladies aloft as they spin and practice complex inversions. An additional 11 poles can be found downstairs, should more space be necessary. Beyond the steamy dance classes, the instructors also helm more traditional fitness classes such as cardio kickboxing, salsa, yoga, ballet, go-go hip-hop and boot camp classes..
