Years before he became the avid runner, swimmer, and certified fitness trainer he is today, Jared Harrison was a chubby kid. It was only after taking up sports in high school that he began to whip into shape. When he resolved to start his own fitness business during college, he eventually lost a total of 80 pounds. His hard work has paid off—not only is he a svelte and muscular titan of an athlete, he now owns and operates his own fitness program, Hit Fit.
Amid the professional equipment and private studios of the local One 2 One Training Center, he and his staff of fellow trainers lead one-on-one and small-group training sessions, as well as nutritional counseling sessions. They take their fitness sessions outside to local parks, challenging students with their boot-camp program's high-energy exercise routines. Covering both fitness and nutrition, the program is designed to help patrons lead overall healthier lifestyles and fit back into their high-school hot-dog costume.
North Cypress Family Practice & Laser Center’s resident physician Dr. Amrit Thandi has experienced the evolution of lasers over the past decade by serving as a Luminary Advisor for Alma Lasers Inc.⎯the brand she still relies on to tighten slack skin, remove hair, and rejuvenate damaged complexions. The technology helps her maintain a practice that avoids invasive procedures, although she can perform minor surgeries at her office or refer patients to other specialists within the North Cypress Medical Center.
A graduate of Dayanand Medical College in Punjab, India, Dr. Thandi completed her residency in family practice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Today, she practices general medicine and performs cosmetic enhancements with equal care aided by an aesthetician and a medical assistant. Dr. Thandi meets with each of her patients and has a hand in every procedure, from cosmetic injections to preventative care exams. The two aspects of the practice seem to balance out. Gentle body-sculpting treatments can be incorporated into a weight management regime, and up-to-date medical acuity can address dermatological concerns such as psoriasis or an embarrassing tattoo of the Pythagorean theorem.
The licensed massage therapists at Horizon Massage & Spa have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
The massage therapists at 8 Spa Massage balance yin and yang with traditional Chinese massage methods, including the diverse tactics of Tui-Na. During an hour of Tui-Na, practitioners knead away rigidity using a choice of light or heavy pressure and organic, hypoallergenic lotion mixed from jojoba, shea butter, cloud down, and sesame oil. Massage mavens stroke, tap, and perform acupressure on muscles with qi gong techniques to help to reverse the progress of pain or extra toe growth. Customers may request either a male or female massage therapist when booking their appointment.
