Supplying all materials, Art By The Glazz's artist-led painting sessions kindle brush-wielding talents during hour-and-a-half sessions. Aprons protect against stray paint, but Art By The Glazz still recommends wearing old clothes. After engaging with music, laughing, and winning game prizes, each artist takes their finished masterpieces home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from the dining-room chandelier.

UFC Gym?s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, UFC Gym sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym?s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
