Phoenix Elites Go Mad For MAD Greens


MAD Greens recently expanded from Colorado to Arizona and opened two locations simultaneously... As part of the pre-grand opening, Yelp Elites and their guests were given a sneak peek to both their Scottsdale and Tempe locations!  Co-founders Marley and Dan (the M & D in MAD), joined us and told us the history of the company, the vision for the future, the commitment they have to using locally-sourced ingredients, their favorite menu items, and so much more.  Needless to say, a fabulous time was had by all and both locations are indeed off to a healthy start!  Check out the Tempe reviews and the Scottsdale reviews and all of the pics as well!

It’s just right before the summer time, aka Yukata season. To all self-claimed health conscious Fukuoka Elite, gathered at Total body care therapist in Kego called “Yasashisa-no-aru Seitaiin” to learn their special stretch program. It was only a one hour lesson. We all felt a change in our bodies from it. After the lesson, we treated ourselves with cold pressed juices from a brand new shop in Fukuoka and very unique “shishamo (a small saltwater fish) breads from Kuroneko-Do where is just downstairs of the total body care therapist. We all got refreshed, both externally and internally. Now we’ll be ready for summer to come!

Check out the reviews and fabulous photos.

Thanks to our event sponsor

Meanwhile, guests learned about the host's training programs and classes while munching on slices from East Glisan Pizza Lounge plus cupcakes and macaroons from Hungry Heart. At the end of the night, Mt Tabor CrossFit raffled off passes to their Foundations classes, and one lucky Elite won a free month's membership to the gym! Want to find out more?

Rocking the pole in São Paulo

Posted by Fernanda


On Saturday afternoon, ten São Paulo yelpers went upside down at Studio Metropole. For two hours, those lucky people got to learn a little bit about pole dancing and understood that this dance is not only about sensuality, but also strength, flexibility and endurance. An afternoon perfect to learn a routine with Liliane Varanda, see performances from other dancers – including the Community Manager – and also have a glass of champagne. It is a day to remember. 

You can be amazed with the photos on our Facebook page or read the reviews and see how those yelpers enjoyed being a dancer for the day.

Exclusive Elite Night At Artesia SPA

Posted by Maria Sundby

On July 1st, Artesia SPA welcomed 9 Oslo Elites to experience the facilities through an all inclusive evening at their beautiful studio. With a smoothie in one hand and a cupcake in the other, we could relax by the pool, surrounded by steam room, jacuzzi, infrared sauna and more. The staff organized for each of us an individual massage of our choice. As Andrea V wrote about the event; "it feels like being in a paradise, exept that this oasis is in the middle of our town"  A big screen above the pool pictured turtles swimming under water, and it felt very much like we were just floating in an eternity og wellness and goodness. The fresh salad at the end was a nice wrapping of a wonderful evening, and with a goodie bag at hand, we returned to the streets of Oslo with a big smile on our faces.

A great thanks to our sponsor: Artesia SPA, and to Røtter for the goodie bag.
