Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with gym workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts lathered in a fresh coat of peanut butter every morning. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.

As Presto Piano Studio’s main teacher, Miss Amy illuminates the joys of playing the piano for kids as young as 8 years old. She accepts students up to the age of 18, and she focuses her lessons on giving beginners a proper musical introduction, one that will reward them as a creative outlet throughout their lives. Though Miss Amy believes mastering the piano takes perseverance and practice, she also thinks it's the easiest instrument to learn, especially in her studio’s kid-friendly environment. Plus, music education makes students smarter and more likely to name their pet after obscure 19th-century Austrian composers. Every student starts off with four private lessons before moving to group lessons with students of a similar age and ability level.
Hatha vinyasa flow. Pure power. Candlelight restorative. These are but a few of the many yoga styles made available to guests at My BodYoga.

But the offerings at My BodYoga aren't limited to just yoga classes. The studio also provides massage and facial treatments that make use of NeriumAD anti-aging products.
A personal-training destination, BFIT Elite Fitness Studio understands that its studio is only one step on the path to improved health and wellness.

Their small-group and personal-training sessions, boot-camp workouts, and nutrition-counseling sessions all take place in a private studio that provides all the equipment for a good sweat without the potential discomfort of working out in a packed gym or an empty, 1/4-scale gym diorama.
