Alliette Chignoli understands how difficult it can be to get in shape. After suffering injuries to her foot and spine, she tried to become a “gym rat,” by “pounding the gym and eating like a bird.” But this combination did not help her lose weight and gain strength. Instead, she discovered that each body needs an individual balance of nutrition and exercise. Using this knowledge, she founded Physical Revolution, to evaluate bodies for fitness, nutrition, and exercise needs to improve overall health. Her personal-training workouts target a variety of muscle goals including flexibility, endurance, strength, and core conditioning. Kettlebell and TRX suspension training use props to help burn body fat and build muscle endurance, while body transformation workouts focus on reducing overall body fat through intense exercises. Physical Revolution also helps clients plan their nutritional intake with food-shopping courses, a home nutrition makeover, and a restaurant field trip to determine healthy menu options.
HealQigong promotes health, enlightenment, and spiritual discovery with the 5,000-year-old Chinese practice of qigong. A central part of traditional Chinese medicine and practiced by more than 200 million people worldwide, qigong involves gentle but powerful physical movements and meditation that relieves pain and reduces stress. Before healing begins, the patient states his or her degree of stress on a 1–10 scale, with 10 being excruciating and 1 being sleeping on a bed of mashed potatoes. During the one-hour proceeding, a healer moves his or her hands over the patient's body without contact, acting as a channel for the universe's healing energy to pass through.
