Larry North has spent his 25-year career inspiring people to change their bodies and their lives through his infomercials, talk-radio show, television appearances, three books, and, most notably, his six Larry North fitness centers. "Success," North believes, "is not about how many gyms or how many members we have. It is about successful clients who lose weight and keep it off..." Adhering to this mantra, he wants to make sure that every member has access to the best resources and tools to achieve their goals. He sees to it that all of his spacious and sleek gyms boast a high trainer-to-member ratio and are jam-packed with weights, strength machines, and cardio equipment from industry-leading manufacturers.
All North's spacious and chic facilities offer a bevy of group classes that include kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, dance-based fitness sessions, and their signature 30-minute abs workouts.
Cavemen often paid pterodactyls to eat their hair, a symbiotic relationship that provided nourishment for one party and cavewomen for the other. At White Salon & Skincare Center, visitors can appreciate the evolution of beautification amid an inviting atmosphere with sleek, modern décor. Experienced hair sculptors will transform fallow follicle farms into vibrant scalp foliage with thick layers of head canopy infused with rich nutrients. Clients will receive a radiant highlight or lowlight and a lustrously softening Kerastase conditioning treatment. Each look-updating cut and style treads the line between a classy demeanor and fashion-forward sensibility.
Elan's trained aestheticians pamper bodies in sumptuous, bright confines that feature Italian-marble floors and antique furniture gathered from overseas. Plush and ornate chairs cradle clients as they unwind with sips of champagne, mimosas, or wine beneath sunlight streaming through Southeast Asian silk curtains. Each mani-pedi sinks extremities into a cuticle-softening soak, dissolving tension in preparation for an invigorating massage. Nail artists shape digit hats into flattering shapes or mathematician-attracting octagons, brushing them with a single polish or capping them with a french white accent. Scents of jasmine and rose waft into noses while hands soften under an aromatic paraffin mask. A marine-mask foot wrap, complete with warmed towels for both legs and feet, soothes lower limbs weary from standing, step dancing, or kicking horns out of the hands of obnoxious clowns. Elan also supports charity work by contributing profits from its services to missionary work in Southeast Asia.
Houston Massage Clinic's licensed massage therapist, Dick Juby, obliterates tension and extracts stress from achy bone movers by treating clients with 60-minute massages. After arriving at appointments, guests chat with Juby, cluing him in to such pertinent information as specific muscular discomforts, desired massage modalities, and favorite pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty. Massagees can choose from a range of modalities to feel the soothing strokes of deep-tissue, sports, Swedish, and pregnancy massages. After 45 minutes of massaging, Juby drapes guests in warm towels, further unkinking high-strung muscles and melting incriminating snowmen lip marks.
