Elite Health Tackles “Manopause” in The Man Cave

Monday, October 6th, 2014


Aventura, FL – October 9, 2014 – Who says a doctor’s visit can’t be fun? Last night, guests at Elite Health Center received more than their typical health checkup as they enjoyed luxury sports cars (Ferraris and Lamborghinis from Lou La Vie), sexy burlesque dancers and Negroni cocktails for the center’s “Man Cave” event. Chief Physician Dr. Rudy Eberwein was on hand to offer guests complimentary wellness and nutrition consultations, while the virile host committee — Ausbert de Arce,  Sean Donaldson, Robert Onuska and Bill McCue – respectfully “observed” the strip-tease performances. Elite Health Center is a state-of-the-art health institute specializing in men’s well-being, including customized anti-aging programs that maximize physical, mental, and sexual prowess.
