With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The licensed massage therapists at Kneading Hands Massage silence muscle spasms and heal ailing joints with skillful strokes and soothing pressure. Online scheduling allows potential clients to select their preferred appointment without having to navigate perplexing rotary phones. Each session begins with a trained massage therapist earnestly listening to clients' individual needs to craft a personalized tension-releasing solution. The massage therapist then sets to work using trigger-point, deep-tissue, and Swedish massage modalities, among others, to ease aches and relieve pains. Throughout the muscle-soothing session, the massage therapist employs professional draping techniques, which offer maximum comfort and modesty by only uncovering areas being treated.
The Crayola Experience packs hands-on fun into more than a dozen exhibits spread over three floors. Visitors can step into a photo booth that creates a coloring page featuring themselves, doodle in the dark on giant glow boards, and paint with melted wax—or head to the Crayola Chronology exhibit to learn more about the company's colorful past. The Crayola Color Crew keeps the world's largest crayon caddy stocked with more than 100 Crayola crayon colors with which kids can draw pictures of their family or favorite TV family. Live manufacturing demonstrations allow visitors to watch crayons and markers being birthed before their eyes.
Character appearances, pizza, and Crayola crafts make birthday parties at The Crayola Experience memorable. The Crayola Store houses the world's largest crayon, which weighs in at 1,500 pounds and was forged from 123,000 blue crayons—the same number Picasso went through during his Blue Period.
Innovative Dry Cleaning’s experienced technicians restore garments to store-fresh conditions with eco-friendly, biodegradable solvents that extract stains in clothing of all cuts and sizes. Dapper two-piece suits, leather jackets, and suede swim trunks take big gulps of fresh air as they cycle through a cleaning treatment that shields them from the style-suffocating effects of water. Technicians watch over the process with discriminating eyes, making sure that buttons remain in place and collars retain their fizzy pop before sliding cleaned vestments into recyclable garment bags. A complimentary pickup and delivery service shuttles garments to and from homes twice a week, saving customers the embarrassment of wearing their sole remaining toga to the store.
