Inside a sunny office tucked beside lush woodlands, Hot Springs-native Dr. Teale and the highly trained staff prioritize patient-centric care. A few moments in the bright, modern office—painted in soothing hues of mint and eggshell—exposes their covert mission to transform dental visits from a dreaded chore into a pleasant biannual ritual. Every exam room looks out onto a lush garden, though during rainy days or the long-foretold lawn-gnome uprising, patients can still find comfort in the cushy massage chair, personal TV, and music hookups. This general dentistry office maintains state-of-the-art equipment to closely monitor oral health, including a 3D x-ray, which captures skulls from ear to ear, revealing hidden roots, bones, and forgotten q-tips. After every treatment, patients refresh with a nourishing slick of lip balm before checking out their polished molars and bicuspid tattoos in the ornate looking glass dubbed the "Smile Mirror."
Natural light flows through prismatic stained-glass windows inside The Yoga Place, a studio located a short walk from Bathhouse Row. In this scenic setting, knowledgeable instructors guide groups through classical and creative sun salutations and Vinyasa postures that combine flowing movement with measured breathing. The sessions aim to dissolve stress and tension while toning the physique and encouraging a healthy weight.

Johnny Gurrieri is a sixth-degree black belt and has been teaching martial arts for more than 25 years. At his eponymous studio, he imparts the fundamentals of karate and tae kwon do to students from 6 to adult. The spacious facility's floors are lined with colored pads, and the walls feature mirrors both tall and wide for students to observe their form.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. 30 seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
At Legit Fit Boot Camp, there are no machines. There are no televisions. There aren't even mirrors. The center's certified instructors take a no-nonsense approach to building strength and endurance by using simple weights, balls, and bars atop a stark rubber floor in each of their diverse fitness routines. Though the staff strives to stave off needless distractions, they detest boredom as well. That's why they keep muscles guessing by combining numerous exercises from different workouts and varying those exercises each day. The curriculum of jumping jacks, squats, and hopscotch games on hot coals ensure students never know what to expect, and the staff's enthusiastic demeanor keeps them focused on their calorie-burning mission.
