At OC Fitness Boot Camp, exercise isn’t just about summoning an instant endorphin rush or fitting into a smaller pair of jeans a few weeks down the line. It’s about helping people live longer, healthier lives. Held at scenic parks and beaches, workouts help participants cultivate a love of fitness that endures when life throws them a curveball or a water balloon filled with chocolate pudding. Here, participants of all fitness levels cheer one another toward goals during strength-building exercises such as burpees, squats, push-ups, and sit-up variations. In addition to torching calories, running and jumping drills fill the group with energy, like a pep rally led by anthropomorphic lightning bolts. A seasoned instructor oversees each camper, doling out exercise demos, technique tips, and a hearty dose of motivation.
Spread across KMC Rejuveno Wellness Center's 2,300 square feet are four treatment rooms—one for nails, one for massages, and two for facials. Inside the latter, skin specialists grab Dermaquest, Murad, and Magnolia Orchid skincare products, then refine complexions with seven different facials. Spa-goers can also indulge in an aromatherapy massage in the candlelit massage room or a gel mani-pedi amid the nail room's tropical-muraled walls. Outside these rooms, crystal chandeliers glimmer over the ornate interior decor, which includes red velvet loveseats and cherubs plucking harps until Cupid retires and they get the call.
Premiere Health Care's Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Rosano takes aim at recurring ailments with chiropractic care, acupuncture, and injury-rehabilitation services. Four massage modalities—including Swedish, shiatsu, prenatal, and deep-tissue styles—relieve tense physiques, while orthopedic braces and supports lessen stress on injured limbs. Premiere also carries a full stock of nutritional supplements and natural health-care products, which kick-start immune systems more effectively than forcing pairs of white blood cells to participate in a one-legged race.
