River West Fitness bottles up exercise routines inside a loft-style fitness studio with exposed brick walls and wooden beams. Dancer and personal trainer Heidi Milby inflects workouts with fluid movements rooted in Pilates, yoga, and gyrotonic sessions, which use pulley machines to strengthen and stretch muscles without jerky movements. Guests can chisel physiques during private lessons, wallop punching bags under the guidance of former professional boxer Johnny Higgins, or steal ab muscles by osmosis from others exercisers during group classes. Aching bodies can retreat to the massage table, where massage therapists soothe sores with the kneads of deep tissue, Thai, or Ashiatsu modalities.

Dr. Perlin and Dr. Jonynas lead a staff of trained technicians at Smiles By Design to even out unwanted fine lines and wrinkles with crease-targeting injections of Botox Cosmetic. Each microneedle injection works to reduce muscle activity to temporarily soften the appearance of facial furrows until countenances are as smooth as cashmere-clad clouds. Patients consult with a healthcare professional to focus on flattening pesky creases in areas such as the forehead, upper neck, brow, and lips. The procedure takes a few minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas, but the effects of treatment may not become apparent for several days after the session. Results, like a snowman's life-insurance policy, may last up to anywhere from three to six months.

The name is a little misleading. Yes, Hell Run entrants will be running, but they'll also be ducking through dark tunnels, sloshing through muddy swamps, tackling tire mountains, and clambering up walls. Among other feats. The obstacle-strewn run may be hellaciously taxing, but conquering it makes the after-party all the sweeter. Along with bragging rights, finishers get a medal, a beer, live music performances, and the opportunity to watch sweat make cool patterns on their mud-covered limbs.

Winner of the Best Bike Shop/Tri Shop award in Competitor magazine, Mox Multisport outfits cyclists and triathletes with competitive gear and primes these indefatigable warriors with a finely tuned machine. The basic tune-up runs two-wheeled people-powered machines through a six-point inspection, adjusting brakes, checking torque, and scaring away any hiccups when shifting gears. The techs clean the entire frame and remove the drive train, scouring debris and grease accumulated from treks through fields of bacon. Finally, to eliminate worrisome wobbling, both wheels are trued.
