Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.

Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.

Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.

Above all else, Sifu K.L. Brown understands two things: first, that a physical change can trigger a spiritual change; and second, that most martial-arts training caters more to men than to women. K.L. discovered that first truth as a boy in the Bronx, where his passion for the Boy Scouts, martial arts, and dance led him to several defining accomplishments. Namely, he was one of first African-Americans from his borough to earn the rank of an Eagle Scout and won both Silver Mittens and Golden Gloves titles before going on to a career as a professional boxing coach.This experience contributed to his second realization, that women needed a style of martial-arts training tailored for their fitness needs and style of learning.

Thus, K.L. designed Sweat Box, a form of martial-arts-based fitness training that dispenses with the rigidity of formal training studios in favor of a high-energy, celebratory atmosphere. As he leads participants through exercises, he also mixes in hip-hop moves and gymnastics. Leading each class, he adjusts exercises for all fitness levels, scaling difficulty where needed. In addition to helping students attain an improved physique, his fitness programs—which include classes, personal training, and competition training—encourage students to expand their perceptions of who they are and what they're capable of.

Still upholding the humanitarianism he learned with the Boy Scouts, K.L. also uses Sweat Box to promote community mindedness. Through his philanthropic venture Sweat Box, Inc. Rose Foundation, he donates proceeds from Sweat Box and Sweat Box Couture toward research into breast cancer, diabetes, and how to make donuts less delicious.

Though they work from a single office, Dr. Mauro Stuparich and Dr. Alexandra Nouel are both doctors and architects. This dual specialization stems from their training in prosthodontics—the art of rebuilding teeth with crowns, bridges, implants, and other apparatuses. After completing prosthodontics programs at Tufts University, then attending advanced courses on surgical implants at the Misch Institute, the two dentists took their expertise to Boston's historic Electric Carriage House. There, they administer a wide range of restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry services to clients of all ages.

Assistance from a congenial staff and advanced technology helps the dentists ensure quality, custom results. For example, Dr. Nouel deftly crafts natural-looking crowns using CEREC systems, which can create the coverings in a single day. Whether their clients want to improve their teeth with porcelain veneers or a regulation cleaning, the dentists can rely on several amenities to ensure patients’ comfort during appointments. The staff members encourage clients to bring their own music, and they can administer sedation to quell lingering anxieties. Clients also have the option of donning protective eyewear. The dark glasses guard against particles and the glare of the overhead light while convincing the dentist that every patient is the Terminator.

The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility."

This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.

Established in 1896, William J. Devine Golf Course inspires greens-goers to hone their strokes at one of the oldest public courses in the nation. William J. Devine Golf Course's more than 6,600 yards were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the famed architect behind New York’s Central Park and the concept of sea level, and redesigned by the “Michelangelo of golf” Donald Ross. The course has earned a 72.1 course rating, a bent-grass-slope rating of 120, and a “va-va-voom” rating on the gorgeous index. Across nine holes (up to a $29 value), putters maneuver through manicured fairways and precarious sand traps on a golf cart (an $11 value) as they sense the ghostly presence of legends, including Willie Campbell, who became the first head professional at the course; precocious prodigy putter Bobby Jones, who fine-tuned his stroke on the grounds; and George F. Grant, the inventor of the golf tee and organic astroturf, who pioneered minority play at the course.

The Boston Bodyworker has been treating pain and injuries in the Copley Square area for 15 years. Though the clinic's interior decor is warm and inviting, clients won’t find a robe or slippers waiting for them like at other massage centers. What they will find are exceptional clinical massages—ones that have caught the attention of CBS and the Improper Bostonian, who gave the center its Best Massage 2011 award. The massages are so effective because each of the more than a dozen therapists has passed an in-house training program and is required to stay up-to-date on current research.

Along with being members of the American Massage Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Drew and his team also volunteer their time and skills to such events and charities as the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s marathon. The Boston Bodyworker is a proud sponsor of the One Run for Boston, a 501c3 charity that raises money for the victims of the marathon bombings. In 2013, it helped raise over $91,000.00 for the One Fund.
