Healing Touch Physical Therapy’s staff—armed with professional certificates from organizations like the American College of Sports Medicine and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America—sandblast away the body’s excess baggage with a five-part personal-training regimen. First, your corporeal sculptor will assess your cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, body composition, and natural imperviousness to anvils. After determining concrete, measurable fitness goals both short-term (do 15 good crunches) and long-term (rip the space-time continuum in half with your bare hands), you and your trainer will vanquish adipose tissue through a carefully calibrated montage of cardio blasts, free weights, balance boards, stretches, and a few surprises to keep the muscles guessing.

Pilates Fitness Club is a Pilates studio that specializes in the Joseph Pilates method of Contrology, and pays special attention to proper biomechanics. Owner Christopher Moxley’s fascination with biomechanics stems from a life spent in athletics. He competed in numerous sports in high school, including track-and-field events such as the high jump. He later joined the Marine Corps, where he found a niche athletically training fellow Marines one-on-one. He finished up his contract with the military and headed off to college to study kinesiology.
Despite all Christopher’s hard work and insight into how to move healthily, he injured his back in 2007. It turned out to be a fortuitous injury, as it introduced to him to the Pilates Method. It was a style that, like him, emphasized biomechanics. He completed 1,300 hours of practical application before he began teaching. As owner of Pilates Fitness Club, Christopher shares his knowledge and skill with students of all ability levels, helping them develop strong cores and lead healthy, balanced lives.

During a couples massage session, therapists help to strengthen the bonds between friends, spouses, and significant others as they rejuvenate and relax in unison.
