No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It’s a pretty stringent philosophy, but it’s one that’s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part support group, Curves is a women-only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Full-body, 30-minute workouts combine strength training, cardiovascular exercises, and stretching into calorie-torching sessions, which are enhanced by the Curves Complete program. The program, available at an extra fee, supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach. Outside the facility, members and nonmembers alike can purchase a variety of Curves products, from workout apparel and accessories to the protein powders and vitamins used to build strength or distract people from all of the caterpillars in medicine cabinets.

The team at TuTu Barre aspires to instill a love of dance in kids as young as 3 and maintain it as they grow up. Mommy and Me classes teach very basic steps to little ones with a little maternal assistance; kids a little older can try pre-ballet classes, and older kids can branch out into many levels of jazz, hip-hop, ballet, and modern dance. And for kids who want a career in the arts, musical-theater classes instruct them on the basics of stealing scenes. Adults, too, can turn to TuTu Barre for fun dance classes such as the Latin-tinged Zumba, as well as fitness classes such as Pilates, power yoga, and barre fitness.
