Hanging on the wall above students, six SunSquare lights simulate the rays from the sun to help reverse the effects of seasonal affective disorder, which is caused by a lack of sunlight. These same lights emit LED heating to dilate blood vessels and relax muscles during hot-yoga classes. On the floor, EdenPure heaters infuse the room with moisture while purifying the air with antimicrobial and anti-swear-word heating coils.

Guests exercise their bodies and minds at ForeCourt Complete Racquet and Fitness Club, where tennis, volleyball, weight-lifting, and other recreational pursuits fight both boredom and inactivity. The blue carpeting of eight indoor courts lies under the tennis arena's vaulted ceiling that echoes the wallops and whacks of each serve, volley, and backhand. During clinics and lessons, beginners learn basic mechanics, court placement, and racket grips, and more advanced players compete in leagues that demand the skill and strategy of playing Risk on trampolines. Forecourt’s 10,000-square foot fitness center invigorates mind and matter ready for a break from prowling the baseline. Each week, 50 group fitness classes whip bodies into shape with Zumba's dance cardio programs, yoga's relaxing postures and poses, and spinning's hardy treks across digital terrains. An onsite daycare frees parents to pursue these activities without having to hire a teenager or a guard baboon to babysit their children.

Striving to create a supportive community, they encourage students to explore the city together after class by trying out a local restaurant or drilling all the local crossing guards for their family meatloaf recipe.
