To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical.
The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.
Across Daly Foot Care’s three locations, Drs. Albert and Jack Daly draw from more than a decade of experience to treat all types of podiatric issues—from toenail fungus and warts to heel pain and sports injuries. They also design custom orthotic inserts that fully support the unique shape of each foot while walking, exercising, or stomping grapes in a bathtub.
As a 5-year-old in the Soviet Union, Daniel Kazachkov underwent a four-hour root canal with no anesthetic. Though the procedure could have ignited a lifelong phobia of dentistry, Dr. Dan instead vowed to become a dentist and prevent others from going through similar pain. After graduating from Tufts University's School of Dental Medicine, he founded his own practice, Dental Arts of Westwood, where he keeps that memory fresh in his mind while carefully monitoring patient comfort.
In their sunny, yellow-walled practice, Dr. Dan and his team tend to the cosmetic and medical needs of teeth with a range of services. X-rays and a CT scans help them to nip disease in the bud, and lasers make surgical procedures quicker, safer, and more likely to finally impress the neighbors. In addition, Venus bleaching treatments whiten teeth. Youngsters can wait in a kids' area with toys, and televisions equipped with Netflix streaming distract patrons from procedures.
All sorts of clients entrust their eyes to the team at Eye Care Specialists, P.C. Perhaps it’s because each member of the staff has been supplied with glasses or sunglasses from the optical boutique, allowing them to personally recommend frames and lenses for each customer. Customers also come there for the wide selection of frames from brands such as Gucci, Pro Design, Ray Ban, and more. For those who like to spend their time in the sun, progressive lenses and prescription sunglasses are also available.
With five distinct courses etched into the New England countryside, Sterling Golf Management promotes pin-hunting recreation for Boston-area golfers of all abilities. The longest and most difficult of the five, The Shattuck Golf Club's 18-hole course kicks off with a 409-yard par 4 where players hack their way toward a green that is visually wreathed by the rising red rocks of Mount Monadnock, setting the tone for a scenic, 6,764-yard round. Groves of trees ensconce the fairways and barter over carbon dioxide at Norwood Country Club's recently renovated course, a relatively flat layout characterized by smallish greens and flanked by a lighted driving range. Designed in 1921 in the Donald Ross tradition is Maynard Golf Course, a picturesque par 70, 9-hole course with a full-service clubhouse. The same sylvan makeup returns at Newton Commonwealth's course, where lush tree lines cast shadows over a creek as it snakes across the fairways of seven holes. Rounding out the grassy quartet, Chelmsford's nine-hole course takes golfers careening across 2,467 yards of narrow fairways, placing straight drives or skilled golf ball pilots at a premium.
Owner Richard Lanza began Open Doors as a metaphysical healing center and store in 1992, and he carried that healing spirit into the yoga studio he opened in 2003. At Open Doors Yoga Studios, Richard's goal is to create a space where people feel empowered to explore their personal beliefs on a path toward self-healing. Thus, yoga instructors at the studio's numerous locations help practitioners achieve their personal goals through accessible classes, each designed to build core strength while quieting the mind and increasing body awareness. From slow-flow heated classes to unheated Hatha sessions, students can participate in a variety of yoga styles geared toward beginners, more experienced participants, and those who only feel comfortable in a 98-degree room.
