Tango Argentina Club's dance teachers—native Argentinian Ruben Carrasco and his wife, Marie—strive to introduce new people to tango and ignite a lifelong passion by holding dance lessons and hosting a BYOB dance party on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday night. During these parties, which spill into the early morning, attendees can dance to live DJ sets, snack on a buffet of French and Argentinian food, and watch an energetic tango dance show. Throughout the month, the duo takes a brief break from tango dancing to yield the floor to outside experts, who teach such styles as salsa, ballroom, and West Coast swing.
Motivating, highly trained staff and spacious facilities complement Charter Fitness's battalion of cardio machines and strength-training equipment. Huge flat-screen TVs motivate gym-goers as they lift weights, stationary bikes, and their reflections in large mirrors. Seasoned personal trainers who all hold certifications or four-year degrees in their specialty guide members through an initial personal-training session, introducing clients to the best equipment for their fitness goals. After workouts, private showers or public water fountains sluice away sweat.
Rather than having clients run on treadmills, ForwardFit owner Bill Waltzek teaches them how to perform goblet squats and turkish get-ups. Both are kettlebell exercises, two of many in the gym's catalog of workouts for functional fitness. Bill and his staff embrace these machine-free moves as means to condition the entire body. They utilize equipment such as free weights, battling ropes, and resistance bands during their programs, which include group classes and private training sessions. Regardless of the routine, ForwardFit's approach encompasses a blend of strength and cardio work combined with nutrition counseling. Instructors also commit to tracking their clients' progress, adjusting their fitness regimens to suit goals as they arise.
With a massage therapist's license and 10 years of experience in his pocket, Shawn Cassady knows his way around a back. He easily targets common complaints such as stress, muscle tension, and pain by zeroing in on each muscle and limb with practiced strokes and a fine sense for knots and kinks. His repertoire of styles ranges from the Swedish massage, which brings about a feeling of full-body relaxation with light-handed strokes and gentle pressure, to deep-tissue and sports massages, which are designed to help the bodies of athletes and overextended gym bags to recover from the rigors of an active lifestyle. Shawn's empathy for those who live with the ramifications of a physically demanding or stressful career runs deep, which is why he knocks 10% off his prices for military, police, and fire personnel.
Helmed by a trio of doctors—Dr. Greenspan, Dr. Haeffele, and Dr. Laima—Wheaton Medical Center keeps a well-trained eye on patient health with services that range from vaccines and physicals to minor surgical procedures and blood tests. The center's staff of massage therapists draw on their medical training in neuromuscular re-education to tailor each massage to target clients' specific problem areas and sore spots with a combination of Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu techniques. Designed to help heal soft-tissue injuries, neuromuscular re-education helps reteach proper balance and range of motion to muscles led astray by chronically truant fascia.
