Husband-and-wife team and Prana Power Yoga cofounders Philippe and Taylor Wells foster an environment in which clients can explore holistic wellness through yoga, intensive workshops, and events. Instructors at each heated studio locations roll out the welcome yoga mats, encouraging students of all interests and skill levels, from mothers-to-be to veteran sun saluters, to build strong bodies and peaceful minds in a judgment-free environment. During athletic Vinyasa-style yoga classes, certified instructors crank up temperatures as high as 99 degrees before taking mat mavens through a sequence of sweaty postures linked with mindful breathing exercises designed to boost lung capacity to Sting-like levels. Meanwhile, visitors in search of a transformative experience can attend one of the studio's workshops or events, which range from juice cleanses to destination yoga retreats in Nayarit, Mexico.
With more than 12,000 successful LASIK and refractive procedures performed to date, Dr. Nilesh M. Sheth continues to practice his vision-boosting craft with well-honed expertise. Famous public figures have restored their sight under his steady hand, including Law & Order actor John Fiore, U.S. Senator Scott Brown, Boston Celtics superstar and two-time elementary-school class president Jo Jo White. Together with TPA-certified optometrist Dr. Audra Rowse, Dr. Sheth honors the Sheth-Horsley Eye Center?s half century of high-quality eye care with treatments ranging from advanced cataract surgery, cosmetic procedures to repair droopy eyes and wrinkles, and corrective surgeries to sharpen vision without the need for glasses or contacts.
The doctor is aided in his fight against astigmatism, cataracts, nearsightedness, and farsightedness with leading edge high tech tools including: VISX S4 excimer lasers, Custom Wavefront instruments, and IFS intralase femtosecond lasers.
The certified laser technicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians who staff Advanced Laser & Skin Center stay up-to-date on modern trends to provide the most advanced aesthetic services. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, they perform technology-based treatments such as Venus Freeze and Thermage, which noninvasively tightens and smoothes the skin, or DermaSound facials that remove dead cells using low-frequency ultrasound waves and extragentle jackhammers. Other procedures, such as laser hair-removal or spider-vein treatments, foster beautiful skin that spans the entire body. Patrons can also opt for old-fashioned pampering in the form of facials that incorporate natural ingredients such as chamomile or pineapple enzymes.
Cofounders Jill Tomich and Peter Lavelle had both been active in the fitness world before they opened Ultimate Bootcamp in 2004. Jill threw her energies into boxing, ballet, yoga, and blogging for a wedding diet-and-fitness website, and Peter, a native Irishman, was a triathlete. In all his pursuits, Peter adhered to the motto "We're not here for a long time?we're here for a good time."
This credo infuses all of the boot-camp programs. Campers from all across the fitness spectrum find accommodation as the workouts meet them close to home. Trainers never push too far, but always challenge. An energetic mix of outdoor-resistance and interval training layers patrons in svelte muscle, builds strength, and burns calories to promote weight loss more effectively than a rice cake's PR agent. Far from the stereotypical idea of a boot camp, encouragement and support roll in from instructors who foster cooperation and camaraderie between fellow boot campers.
In Robby Blanchard's biography photo on his website, he prepares to lift a heavily stacked barbell. The determination is clear on his face—the same determination that carried him through a bachelors of science in exercise, an MBA in Business Management, three CrossFit-training certifications in varying styles, not including the fact he's a USA Weightlifting-Certified Sports Performance Coach. Today he shares his determination and all his fitness knowledge with at his training camp, CrossFit Reach.
During workouts, Robby and two other resident coaches push students through an array of exercises that change every session to boost the body's ability to perform in the 10 domains of fitness, which include power, speed, flexibility, and agility. To do so, students might perform exercises requiring them to run, jump, weightlift, and eventually perform all of those elements at once, immediately qualifying them for a life in the circus.
