Buckhead Health & Beauty
West Coast Workout
107 W. Paces Ferry Rd., Buckhead
Trainer Tammy Stokes (who moved to Atlanta from LA) is all about full-body training, so you can expect her workouts to use medicine balls, free weights, and a custom-designed bench that she uses for core training. Tammy also does cleanses and nutrition support, for people who want a more holistic weight-loss program.
Sugarcoat Nail Spa
256 Pharr Rd. NE, Buckhead
Sugarcoat gets bonus points for their interiors, which are high-ceilinged and airy, with color-coordinated polish walls and poppy glass bulbs hung sculpturally from the ceiling. We also love their intense commitment to keeping everything clean—each new client gets a kit of nail files buffers, toe separators, and pumice stones to keep, as those products are never used on two different clients. They also have specially designed porcelain sinks with fresh running water, so bacteria from soaking tubs is never recirculated from one client to the next, and you never have to worry about the ick-factor that comes with regular soaking tubs. You can also find them in Virginia Highland and Vinings.
3872 Roswell Rd., Buckhead
Owned by two ridiculously fit local trainers, Jeff Toney and Amy Selig, the workouts here are based on the Lagree Method, a pilates-based practice that uses a combination of cardio and strength training to get the posture and lengthening benefits of the former along with the calorie-burn and metabolism boost of the latter. Everything happens on a Megaformer, and since the room can only hold a few of them, the classes have the added benefit of always feeling super intimate and personalized. There's a second studio in Midtown.
