The interior of Crossfit 290 resembles a cross between a warehouse and a gym. There's a towering ceiling, sunny windows, and a slew of plyometrics boxes, chin-up bar stations, and squat racks scattered across the sprawling floor. Essentially, the space is a perfect stage for CrossFit's daily workouts. CrossFit is a no-nonsense fitness discipline that relies on functional exercises such as chin-ups, squats, and dead lifts. Its exercises can be customized to suit all fitness levels, which was proven when CrossFit officials successfully trimmed a couch potato into a couch french fry.

Karen Mones's passion for fitness began at a young age, exercising to Jane Fonda videos with her mother. She went on to play softball, earn her bachelor's in exercise and sports science, and obtain six instructor certifications in everything from yoga to strength training. She founded Houston Adventure Boot Camp to share her knowledge and passion for fitness with as many people as possible.

She and her trainers create different regimens each day, taking advantage of the city's natural spaces and natural forces to enhance their workouts. They challenge gravity by having students lift their own bodyweight or free weights. Students plow through the heaviest friction the air can throw at them in sprints, and they hold up under constant pressure from the sun to nap in the middle of a field.

Treating symptoms is relatively straightforward. Addressing the underlying causes and promoting holistic wellbeing across the entire body is a more ambitious goal. As a licensed acupuncturist and practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, John Shay attempts to accomplish the latter by channeling centuries-old treatments intended to locate and remove the blockages inhibiting the natural flow of the body's energy. The idea is that unrestricted energetic flow allows the body's natural healing mechanisms to operate at peak efficiency and not only relieve painful symptoms, but also prevent other conditions from arising in the future.

Originally born in Taiwan, Shay studied at the Chinese Culture University in Taipei before immigrating to the United States and obtaining a formal degree in acupuncture and oriental medicine. His approach to healthcare adopts a holistic focus, aiming to restore a sense of balance to ailing systems throughout the body. In addition to acupuncture, he also uses natural Chinese herbal medicines and cupping sessions to help ramp bodies back up to peak performance.

MyVita Houston Hormone Treatment Center's Dr. Zbigniew Chmielewski and President Leonard Ventimiglia don't promise a pill that can reverse the signs of aging, but they do have a pill to make aging easier. Before any treatment is performed, a free consultation with a doctor maps out the patient’s goals. Then, using all-natural hormone complexes and noninvasive procedures, the doctors regulate hormones levels in the patient’s body. The new burst of hormones keeps both men and women feeling balanced, and they reinvigorate patients' lives by eliminating hot flashes, fortifying against emotional highs and lows, and keeping things interesting in relationships.
