With a diverse range of fitness backgrounds and specializations—from injury rehabilitation and prevention to martial-arts training—Metropolis Fitness & Spa’s staff of 15 instructors ensures a helpful match for nearly every client. The team leads more than 70 group fitness classes per week, including familiar favorites, such as yoga, Zumba, and spinning, and a few of their own inventions, including Video Dance Jam, which pushes exercises through fast-paced choreography. The ballet and jump-rope classes for kids help wee ones burn off extra energy without requiring you to construct a giant hamster wheel in your home.
In the main studio, a slew of cardio machines with built-in TVs and weight-training equipment awaits members, in addition to a room stocked with dangling punching bags and TRX bands. To recover from sweat sessions, guests can fuel up with healthful drinks and snacks at the juice bar.
The licensed massage therapists at Inches Body Studio's three locations help clients slim down with a menu of noninvasive treatments. They harness powers such as ultrasound, radio frequency, and heat to break down fat and leave cellulite deposits smoother than a just-waxed ice rink. Electromassage aims to activate muscles at the cellular level, and traditional hands-on massages promote lymphatic drainage and relaxation in one fell swoop.
Camelot Salon & Spa's experienced aestheticians nourish nails in need through thorough manicures and pedicures. During a hydrating Gables manicure, pro pamperers trim cuticles to make room for a fresh coat of OPI or Essie polish, and a forearm-and-hand massage gently coaxes muscles into thinking they're wearing gloves made from freshly harvested clouds. The matching Ped-E-Cure removes dead skin cells and frivolous cuticles from feet, creating a smooth path for a light massage and a toenail buff-and-trim .
Though the Vellisimo Center is an international organization based primarily in Spain, the staffers at its three locations in Florida beautify men's and women's bodies with same technology-driven treatments. Technicians utilize the intense pulsed light of the On Flash system to combat acne, diminish spider veins, and remove hair of almost any color, including blonde, red, and argyle strands. Noninvasive Depura Spa treatments help enhance and stimulate the body's natural detoxification process.
Curving lavender walls guide guests into Spa in the Grove's relaxation chamber, softly lit from below and shutting out the complications of modern life with the Zen simplicity of its décor. With long strokes, gentle stretches, and pressure-point techniques, massage therapists build up healing rhythms that coax muscles out of painful holding patterns. Botanical and mineral salves enhance bodies' sense of connection to the natural world, from lavender aromatherapy oil to exfoliating sea salt to the cold-pressed jojoba oil that sluices away friction from all massage sessions and desert predators away from all jojoba plants.
