Under the medical direction of board-certified physicians Dr. Carson Bauder and Dr. Loakhnauth Ramkishun, the team at Wymore Laser & Anti-Aging Medicine combines cutting-edge equipment with a holistic approach to beauty.

In addition to completing advanced training in anti-aging nutriceuticals and preventive medicine, Dr. Filardo is certified in medical acupuncture and is a fellow on the Acupuncture Society of America, Inc.
While Dr. Filardo employs ancient techniques to promote wellness, he and his staff also specialize in the latest nonsurgical cosmetic treatments.

Dr. Filardo also sculpts bodies with weight-loss programs and VelaShape cellulite-reduction treatments that leave skin as smooth as a valentine written in syrup.

The duo imparts get-fit know-how during one-on-one training sessions and two types of boot-camp classes. The Average Joe's camps are geared toward beginners, whereas the Body Blitz camp is a more intense physical and mental challenge for advanced exercisers. Exercisers build muscle and trim waistlines with strength-building equipment including kettlebells, cardio machines, and medicine balls, the last of which should not be swallowed without a prescription.
Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
Forte Fitness’s owner, Alicia Streger, gathers a crew of trainers whose backgrounds are as diverse as the exercises performed within her boot camps. When not motivating people to achieve their fitness goals, instructors spend time participating in fitness competitions and charity camps within the community, building strong bonds and increasing their accountability and success as co-trainers. Each instructor's background is reflected in his or her physical and mental fitness, and they try to instill that discipline in students through their 21-day Belly Blast Challenges, boot camps, and regular kettlebell courses, all supplemented with nutritional education. For traveling clients who don’t want to lose the rhythm of their routine, the instructors assemble their 20 favorite body-weight exercises, ones that conveniently don’t require using any particular equipment or punching any particular wall.
The staff members of Winter Park Health & Fitness have devoted themselves to a simple mission: creating a welcoming space for members to set and achieve fitness goals. In addition to keeping cardio machines and Nautilus strength-training equipment spick-and-span, they're always available to answer questions and help members work out more effectively. Weekday childcare enables parents to stop in for classes that include indoor cycling, three types of yoga, and Pilates. Trainers can also show members how to use the gym's TRX suspension bands to leverage their body weight for workouts during personal-training sessions, which incorporate strength training and metabolic testing that reveals how many calories clients must burn or consume to successfully body-double for Dolph Lundgren.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
