When Coach Eddie sees someone struggling to complete one of his 60-minute circuit-training sessions, he knows how to help them reach the finish line, because he has been there. A little more than seven years ago, he weighed nearly 300 pounds. He made the decision to change his life, and through pure dedication, he slimmed down to 160 pounds and has since maintained his newly svelte physique. Throughout his journey to fitness, he learned myriad ways to strengthen core muscles, shed weight, and enhance agility and stamina, and he is now determined to share his techniques to help others make similar transformations at Mind Body Total Fitness.
Eddie and his team of certified trainers mix and match those methods to target all the body’s muscle groups during outdoor weight loss fit camp for exercisers of all fitness levels. In their coed and women's-only weight loss fit camps, they constantly vary the routines to prevent workout burnout. One day, participants might run short sprints, jump rope, and do sit-ups balancing atop exercise balls, and the next, they might pull against resistance bands, do leg lifts, and toss medicine balls to participants suffering from colds. They advocate pairing these high-intensity workouts with well-balanced diets and nutritional supplements.
Dr. Kris Patel’s journey to The Pearland Clinic began upon his graduation from India's Bangalore University in 1990, before whisking him across the ocean for further study at the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program. After a brief detour to Bloomington, Indiana, he finally set up permanent practice in Houston in 1998, where he has been practicing family medicine ever since. The polylingual doc––who speaks Hindi, Gujarati, Spanish, and English––specializes in skincare, allergies, and pediatric and adolescent care, and also treats those in need of urgent care for minor emergencies, such as injuries or swallowed pride. The clinic also boasts an aesthetic branch, where visages are revamped by certified aestheticians who perform chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments as well as cosmetic enhancements, such as permanent cosmetics and tattoo removal.
A full-service healthcare and wellness practice formerly known as InterFit, RediClinic pairs licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants with patients seeking services ranging from physicals and vaccinations to cosmetic consultations and diabetes testing. Typically found inside retail stores, RediClinics don't require any appointments, making walk-in service as seamless as the plot of most Newhart fan fiction. In addition to preventive services, RediClinic has also expanded its services into the realms of proactive health, promoting wellness with weight-loss counseling and programs to help patients stop smoking.
Analyte Health's staff of certified phlebotomists works to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases by offering affordable screening to patients at more than 30 Houston-area locations. The FDA-approved and CLIE-certified test scans blood and urine samples for eight sexually transmitted diseases, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B and C, herpes I and II, HIV, and syphilis. Within 72 hours, patients receive their confidential test results on a secure website or via e-mail, with the promise that Analyte Health will never share them with a third party. If necessary, fully trained doctors and medical professionals are on hand to discuss treatment options.
DiagnosticsforU bypasses the rigmarole of intrusive visits to the doctor's office with thorough and speedy health and hormone panels that test the body's trouble spots. The most popular tests check blood type, kidney function, or general heart health, though teenagers often test to see why their parents don’t understand them. The lab's speed—often offering a turnaround time of 24–48 hours—is rivaled only by its commitment to convenience. Orders can be placed confidentially by phone, and results are returned by mail, email, or fax and shared with a designated physician as desired.
