During personal training sessions at Samantha Rayne Fitness, staff ensure that no more than two people are training on the floor at any one time. This lets trainers focus their attention entirely on a client's form and progress. In addition to personal training, the facility hosts group endeavors such as Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing sessions. After intense sessions, clients can take advantage of the gym's massage therapy to help ease muscle aches.

Communication is key at Massage Mantra, where a team of seven licensed massage therapists encourages clients to describe their pains and stresses and listens closely in order to structure treatments suitable to their needs. Once they have taken your input to heart, they stretch out their nimble hands and begin to soothe muscles with one of six available bodywork modalities, from reiki treatments that calibrate the body's energy levels to sports massages that methodically extract hockey pucks lodged between muscles. A roster of skin-specific facials complements the massages’ inner healing with infusions of nourishing vitamins that promote a healthy outer glow.
The licensed massage therapists at Family Therapeutic Massage take a clinical, rather than a pure-relaxation, approach to bodywork—they want to heal their clients.

The staff also detoxifies bodies with such novel treatments as ear candling, sinus treatments, and lymphatic drainage.
