How it Started  

While working on his MBA, Dr. Joshua Martini was approached by his wife, Dr. Laurel Martini—a 20-plus year veteran of surgery, trauma surgery and acute care medicine—with the idea of opening a full-service health spa. Together, both Josh and Laurel had witnessed firsthand the effects of stress and poor personal health on individuals ability to heal, optimally perform, and feel their best. Opening their own med spa would be the ultimate way to help their friends and neighbors in the Twin Cities avoid unhealthy life choices and help them build a robust, beautiful life. It was then that Vively was born.

Before launching Vively, Laurel began to experience recurring health problems, so she had turned to a local fitness studio known for its unique take on physical health. When she began to live the positive results, Laurel knew she had found the perfect partner to Vively’s offerings. Although Vively Body Science initially opened inside a boutique fitness studio, it was soon apparent that more space was needed. In March 2021, Vively moved to Wayzata, offering clients in and around the Twin Cities the ultimate resources to help look and feel their best
