Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness level and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The patented Smartraining machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change, to constantly challenge the body. Exercisers can track their results and body composition measurements online and even compare individual fitness levels to others in the Koko FitClub community.
Fitness Together pairs up personal trainers with goal-oriented clients. Customized workout plans help them reach such fitness milestones as benching a certain amount of weight, running a marathon, or crab-walking a 5K. Sessions combines resistance and cardio training with nutritional advice.
Curves provides you with a complete cardio and strength training workout in just 30 minutes. With a system that can burn up to 500 calories and work every major muscle group, you get an efficient and effective workout every visit. It’s no wonder over 4 million women have chosen Curves to meet their health goals.
Old World charm commingles with a contemporary vibe at Dabble Studio, where students gather with friends old and new to relax, unwind, and explore new skills. Amid the easels and ovens, instructors dole out guidance as flicking brushstrokes conjure impressionist landscapes and abstract still lifes, and knives and whisks prepare rustic pizzas and quiches. While enjoying drinks ? BYOB or purchased in-house ? with the company of fellow food- and art-lovers, students in this hands-on studio environment can cook and paint in the same session, rendering their own interpretations of each class's featured painting, from a peacock's plume to a shimmering skyline, while preparing and cooking custom dishes using studio-provided ingredients. The studio's Brentwood location is equipped with all the cooking tools, supplies, and ingredients for a tasty night of fun. This upscale studio is an ideal place to take a date, schedule a family reunion, or host a bachelorette party. Available classes include exotic cooking classes, painting classes, and combinations of the two, all of which are overseen by experienced art instructors and culinary experts.
Too much power has been given to first-grade art teachers. Or so the instructors and organizers of Paint Along Nashville think. On their website, these leaders of BYOB painting workshops encourage adults to "unleash [their] creative spirit from time to time," even if once, in an era before college-admissions exams included a finger-painting section, their elementary critique d'art "failed to recognize [their] 'Picasso potential.'"
During workshops, an encouraging instructor, a convivial group of fellow aspiring artists, and an uncorked bottle of vino foster creativity. In each workshop, groups paint the same template picture, which could be a landscape of an autumn afternoon or a still life of wine and cheese. As wine sloshes into glasses, and as brushes layer paint on canvases, students usually find themselves enjoying a BYOB evening and later taking home their creations.
