Bally enshrines exercise classes, calorie-burning equipment, and a fitness-focused staff within its sanctuaries of health. A 30-day membership includes access to a spread of group exercise classes, including Pilates, Reaction Cycling, and Step Fitness (class offerings vary by location). For self-guided worker-outers, cardio equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, cross-trainers, and stair climbers torch calories while entertaining the brain with video entertainment and integrated music systems that occasionally whisper quotes from Charles Atlas. Bally also boasts an array of strength machines, free weights, and small-apparatus equipment, and grants gym-goers access to on-site locker rooms, showers, and, at some locations, a pool and steam room. Visit each location's webpage for a list of specific amenities and the lineup of classes.
Latin Soul Ballroom's experienced instructors tutor fledgling and finessed two-steppers alike in ballroom jives, mambo moves, and an array of dance styles. A packed schedule of evening classes entices dancing shoes to take to the hardwood floor during four-week sessions that explore the East Coast swing, the sensual steps of Argentine tango, the club-style cha-cha's syncopated steps, and more. During 45-minute private lessons, students train their toes to follow the steps of an instructor with a diverse dance repertoire that incorporates styles such as bachata, lindy hop, and the touchdown celebrations of Nikola Tesla.
SVS Optical Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 50 locations sprawled across 10 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Optical Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
Tucked inside of a full-service medical clinic, Premier Laser Care administers cosmetic and aesthetic treatments with the assistance of FDA-approved equipment and the supervision of board-certified doctor Carmen Popa. To reinstate youthful full-body beauty, Dr. Popa and her staff utilize ClearScan laser technology to vanquish unwanted hair and vascular issues such as spider veins or broken capillaries; broadband light therapy allows them to pulse away sun spots, age spots, redness, and other issues caused by aging, sun exposure, or a public reading of your fifth-grade diary. Lax skin around the eyes or on the body can be re-tightened with fractional resurfacing or SkinTyte II infrared energy, respectively, and finer lines and wrinkles find themselves swiftly smoothed out after injections of Botox or cosmetic dermal fillers.
Silvestro's team of teeth technicians is led by veteran dentist Anthony R. Silvestro, Jr., who applies a full-court press of teeth whitening services to break apart offensive teeth stains. For a smile whiter than the Queen's linens, opt for the Zoom! Whitening in-office treatment. Zoom! utilizes laser technology and Zoom! gel to comfortably erase stains and restore the mouth's natural glimmer. Do-it-yourselfers can say goodbye to coffee stains by taking home a week's worth of teeth whitening products. By letting teeth set in trays lined with a special solution for a few hours a day, discolorations will meekly take flight and go their own way, like Dumbo.
