Even the most open-minded diner occasionally encounters an intolerable meal, whether because of allergies or because it insists on making inappropriate jokes in front of parents. Remove tasteless suppers from your innermost circle with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a food-intolerance and allergy test at Fitness Arts in Palatine (a $195 value).
Founded in 1998 as a Pilates studio, Fitness Arts has grown into a holistic hub for health and wellness. During each one-hour food-intolerance and allergy test, a specialist aims to diagnose commonly overlooked food allergies that can lead to stomach pain or fatigue, then maps out a meal plan to help the client avoid harmful eating habits, such as chewing ice cream while it's still on the spoon. After the client describes their health challenges and weekly eating habits, the clinician will use Zyto technology—a method that enlists science to potentially help a person prove that their body hates brussels sprouts—to scan through more than 200 foods and determine the top 28 potential intolerances. Clients then receive a suggested food detox plan for the next 30 days and get a sample of meal-replacing supplement, as well as 25% off additional products, if needed, as well as 50% off future follow-up visits.
During the consultation, consultants may also discuss how to continue to identify allergies, control appetite, detoxify organs, and get a grip on food addiction. Fitness Arts' experienced staff might fling open a medicine chest of clinically tested supplements to help clients fill in any nutritional gaps.
Staffed by health instructors, scientists, and licensed medical practitioners, Fitness Arts approaches health from all angles through the study of movement and nutrition. Staff members lead workouts while imbuing clients with facts on how each exercise will effect his or her biomechanics, posture, and ability to sit in a folded-up folding chair. Hardwood studios house rows of Reformers, allowing students to stretch and pose during group, semiprivate, and private classes such as Pilates and Body Rolling. Studio technicians also assuage health-and-wellness concerns with nutritional counseling and PR Lab products.
