Think of a pilot flying using a compass instead of GPS. You want the best pilot, utilizing the latest technology, flying the most advanced jet! Dr. Tyson’s background as a biomedical engineer at Johns Hopkins University has allowed him to participate in the development of femtosecond cataract laser surgery. Dr. Tyson performed the first Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery in Collier County at the Naples Premier Surgery Center. This system is designed to be the safest and most effective way to customize your cataract removal and correct your astigmatism.

The LENSAR™ laser, now able to work with the Cassini corneal modeling system, combines a high resolution 3-D CSI imaging device, giving a fully automated analysis of the cornea and lens surfaces. It offers significant advantages to traditional cataract surgery, giving a customized mapping of the front and back surface of the eye, which can offer a more precise correction of astigmatism. “We offer our patients the most advanced technology available in the market for their Cataract surgical experience. Achieving the best visual outcomes for our patients vision is priceless” -Farrell C. Tyson, MD, FACS

Melissa Wallace, Aerial Yoga instructor and owner of The Full Lotus Wellness Initiatives, is living her passion by helping others reach new limits through wellness initiatives. “Beginners, seniors, kids, pre-teen to advanced yogis can use the swing as it is used as merely a prop,” she says. “Training on the swing and doing various inversions can be a huge help to decompress the spine, those who have joint issues and who may have trouble working out on the floor. The added bonus of training on a swing is that it gets those endorphins going and sometimes it can make you feel like that kid again.

However, with the addition of strength and functional training classes such as boot camp, circuit training and total body conditioning, the appeal of group exercise has become more widespread. Group aerobics, once thought of as a woman’s workout, now appeals to both men and women due to the introduction of modalities such as the TRX suspension trainer, the Rip Trainer, kettlebells, Bosu Balls and specialty formatted programs such as Beachbody Live’s P90X Live Class, Insanity Live, Country Heat Live, PiYO Live and Turbo Kick Live. “Machines are not needed!

TRAINER CONFESSIONS

THINGS I’VE PICKED UP ALONG THE WAY TO HEALTHY

One of the biggest things I have learned in this business is that someone cannot sign a loved one up for training. Anytime someone has called me to train his or her child or spouse, it has never worked out well. It really has to be someone’s own idea. I see this the most with parents that have scheduled for me to train their children. Many times, the children are very unmotivated and do not follow through with logging their diets and doing the workout assignments on their own. Becoming fit and healthy is a huge mindset, and it has to be a choice made by the person himself or herself.

I am a big believer in having one or two treat meals a week. I don’t like to call them “cheat meals” because I feel that we are entitled to these meals. We tend to eat relatively healthy most of the time at our house, so I like to save these treat meals for when we dine out. My favorite treat meal would have to be either Mexican food from a good restaurant or a good pizza from one of the local pizzerias.

Another thing I have learned since I started training is that the people that lose weight very quickly are the ones that tend to burn out the fastest. Usually, if someone drops weight very quickly, they are probably doing something a little bit on the extreme side. It’s always better to make little choices gradually until you have acquired a feasible lifestyle change. I like to see my clients that are looking to lose weight lose only 1 to 3 pounds per week. Those are usually the people that will keep the weight off for the long term.
