Better Bodies sculpts muscles through a variety of group fitness classes taught by experienced, motivational trainers. One month of unlimited boot camp tests your body’s ventricular fortitude, as each session is said to burn 1,000-plus calories per hour and provoke spontaneous grunting from unannounced bouts of vigor and strength. Reduce stress, lose weight, and increase your wattage while moving from one powerful exercise to the next under the tutelage of certified trainers—some with military backgrounds. Better Bodies offers a flexible schedule filled with multiple boot-camp classes per week. The training gauntlet is usually performed outdoors in a park with very little equipment, allowing exercisers to harness Mother Nature’s nesting bird barbells and tree-branch javelins.

At The Skin Place, patients can turn back sagging facial clocks with help from the Triniti three-stage laser treatment. After a complimentary consultation to diagnose the skin’s condition, uneven pigment finds itself in the corrective cross-hairs of a color-correcting photofacial beam, which works to even tone, undo sun damage, and treat symptoms of rosacea, spider veins, and aggressive kisses. Next, the Refirme laser assists in facial de-drooping by stimulating subdermal collagen replenishment with bipolar radio-frequency and light waves. Ideal for flashing away saggy under-eye circles and brow lines, the process helps to bolster long-term collagen production for longer-lasting tautness and fewer fine lines. Finally, the Matrix IR laser is deployed against mild to moderate wrinkles, using focused energy at furrowed danger zones to demurely obscure facial age. The number of required sessions is dependent each patient’s skin condition and number of faces, and though some may note immediate results after only one treatment, most take three to five sessions for optimal results.
