The owner of She3 Barre Well-Fitness Boutique, Benay Rubin, originally trained in the Lotte Berk Method?the original barre fitness regimen?and she's perfected her technique over the last 20 years. However, she also earned certifications in yoga and Pilates, and has combined the three fitness styles into her own signature barre workout, which is designed to help primarily women tone their bodies.

She and her team teach the body-sculpting sequence to patrons of all ages and abilities, focusing on "finding 'quiver' ... when the muscle is strengthening and lengthening," according to Rubin. Their regimens also incorporate TRX resistance training and jump roping, as well as wellness activities, such as detox programs, to help patrons lead overall healthier lifestyles. They teach traditional Chinese qi gong, for example, which soothes physiques with a blend of meditation, self-massage, and relaxed breathing to help clients reach states of bliss and peacefulness normally only achieved while lying in a meadow as woodland creatures brush your hair.

Furthering their mission to forge connections between the mind, body, and ocean, lifelong surfers Chris Cotter and Lindsay Conner lead students on watery explorations during private surfing and standup-paddleboard (SUP) lessons. Each 60-minute session can be tailored to individuals or groups of any experience level; students can also pick up extra practice by snagging board and paddle rentals by the hour, day, week, or lunar month. Back at the shop, a pair of colorful surfboards frames an entrance that opens into a show room that features surfboards, paddleboards, and skateboards with apparel and accessories that are equal parts funky and functional.

In its massive indoor facility, Funtime Junction has room for laser tag, an arcade, and even a ride that seats children in tiny model helicopters. Youngsters cavort on classic attractions as well: inflatables encourage record jumps, whereas jungle gyms have slides to zoom down and tunnels that kids can explore after sending in a scout party with headlamps. The playground hosts casual visits and birthday parties, which reward guests with pizza, hot dogs, goodie bags, and tokens to use on games.
