The trainers at Family Gym eschew the one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, understanding that people at different ages require different resources.They cater to a range of developmental phases, making them the perfect family gym. While parents take advantage of babysitting services, they can attend group fitness classes that the trainers scale to each individual's fitness level. These sessions are based on yoga, salsa dancing, and martial arts, and are held in both English and Spanish.

The cutting-edge beauty techniques taught at CAMMUA Makeup Academy prepare budding makeup artists for the high-fashion world as well as careers in TV or film. The techniques and vision of founder Gia Deo shape the school's curriculum, and she has personally mentored every one of the school’s teachers. Advanced FX classes teach students how to use foam and latex appliances, facial hair, and bald caps to turn an actor into an otherworldly creature or make a werewolf presentable enough for a job interview. The academy’s comprehensive makeup kits combine with intensive beauty-certification classes that cover the essentials of being a makeup artist. Members of the public can enroll in one-session makeup tutorials, which cover flattering color palettes and impart concealer techniques to hide redness rather than entire eyes.
Students unleash their inner creativity during Wine and Palette's laid-back painting classes. The professional-artist instructors invent projects that reflect their individual style, from bold abstract patterns to misty, atmospheric landscapes. Though all members of a course work on the same basic image, students add individual flourishes to make the image their own. And, since each class meets at a local bar or restaurant, they can also choose to kick back with a drink or snack as they paint.
?Never follow someone up a mountain if they have not already conquered it themselves," advises wellness instructor and RCBC Studio owner Silvia Castro.

At Red Carpet Boot Camps’ fitness center, trainers motivate others toward fitness through classes such as spin, yoga, and Reformer Pilates.

Understanding that pushing muscles to their limits is only part of the equation, Red Carpet also offers nutrition coaching.
