Ken Wozniak—or "Coach Ken," as he's known to members—founded Energize Zone Wellness Center to create a safe place for people to commit to nutrition and fitness. He says that changing his nutritional habits "gave me my life back, so it's something I wanted to share with the rest of the world."
He and a team of wellness coaches help patrons reach their goals through fitness classes, body-transformation weight-loss challenges, and nutrition sessions. When new members come in, the trainers assess their fitness status with complimentary wellness profiles, which contain custom health and nutrition information, such as how many calories and how much protein they should eat to maintain a healthy weight. The coaches follow up with regular assessments—which members can request whenever they'd like—that help them track their progress between sessions, whether they're seeing how much faster they can run a mile, how many more pushups they can do, or how many more Van Halen songs they can perform at turbo speed in one karaoke slot. In addition to nutritional coaching, group fitness classes, including boot camp, cardio kickboxing, and Zumba, keep bodies moving.
Ken says many of the club’s members are new to wellness or are at the ends of their ropes with other methods. "The people who come here are the people who don't want to go to the big gyms," he says. "We call this a safe haven for people who want to come here and get healthy." He credits their supportive atmosphere to the fact that he and the other coaches have similar histories to many of their clients; one of the coaches, for instance, dropped 90 pounds as a member before becoming a coach to help others do what she did. "We are people who have been there," Ken says.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Tracy McCall uses her healing hands to heal at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery. She performs procedures that ease the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and Dupuytren's contracture.
Though hands are the center's specialty, the skilled staff also perform other aesthetic and plastic-surgery services, such as skin-rejuvenation treatments performed by experienced aesthetician Cari Kavetschanky. Cari helps each client create a custom skincare regimen to address his or her beauty concerns. When creating these regimens, she takes the time to consider clients' budgets, lifestyle habits, time constraints, and preferred utensils with which to smear cream on their faces.

Created by fitness trainer and life coach Dr. John Spencer Ellis and led by owner and certified fitness professional Doug Krueger, the Lake Country Adventure Boot Camp program shepherds women to physical fitness with motivational workout regimens and nutritional counseling. Before the camp starts, trainers take your measurements and body-fat percentage before hopping into a curious pod, leaping into the future, and comparing them to those of the trimmer post-camp you. In the interim, the four-week or three-day workout regimen cycles through circuit training, jogging, kickboxing, and yoga to surprise and challenge muscles. During winter months and unforeseen Renaissance festivals, sessions move to spacious indoor facilities.
