From mindfulness apps to diet hacks, Vegas’ grounded gurus have a wealth of wellness knowledge to share.
TV host, author and actress
From co-hosting CBS’ The Talk to releasing her New York Times-bestselling memoir, Live Your Life, Amanda Kloots has been busier than ever the past few years. This month, she’ll release her debut children’s book, Tell Me Your Dreams, out April 11, and she continues to inspire women around the world through her online fitness programming. That passion for wellness spawned her latest partnership with Wynn Las Vegas, where the mogul has created exclusive in-room workout videos for the resort’s new Wynn Living Well program. "Wellness is super important to me, most importantly for my mental health,” says Kloots. "I was motivated to be part of this program because I also believe wellness looks a little different to everyone, and that it’s all about doing what makes you feel your personal best.” Here, Kloots reveals some of the products that help her stay at the top of her game

Owner, JNA Health LLC and Perspire Sauna Studio
"Wellness is an evolving word for me, and I believe that is the case for most people,” says local Jeff Na, who recently opened the first of three Perspire Sauna Studios to hit the state of Nevada in the Las Vegas market.

My workout plan keeps me disciplined while energizing me toward all my goals.” That includes helping others reach their wellness goals through Perspire, the world’s fastest-growing infrared and red-light therapy sauna studio.
