Good ideas often come from a simple formula, such as the PB&J sandwich, the BLT, or the BLT&J. At Fusion Fitness & O2 Yoga, the body-nourishing combination is simply a blend of yoga and Pilates principles. Designed by fitness professionals Debbie Wolff and Andi Boddie, Fusion's signature group workouts integrate breath control, focus, fluid motions, and core-strengthening exercises along with various other fitness techniques. During group sessions, a team of instructors strives to foster an environment of warmth by encouraging guests to smile through their workouts. The team works to provide personal attention to each student, offering adjustments to moves to accommodate varying fitness levels. Fusion's instructors also lead several other fitness classes, including boot camp and spinning.
Color Me Mine puts paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young. Budding Toyozo Arakawas will follow six easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece (around $12 and up) from Color Me Mine's selection of more than 300 items, such as a piggy bank (from $18), mug (from $15), or vase (from $25). After charting out the desired design from individual imagination or Color Me Mine's idea gallery, painters will select an underglaze from Color Me Mine's cast of more than 60 colors, applying paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products in about a week. A studio fee of $8 for children and $9 for adults covers all paints, supplies, glazing, and firing. Regardless of age or ability, customers will find Color Me Mine's ceramic-painting experience a rewarding dive into the creative process of an art form that dates back to the ziggurat-dwelling days of Mesopotamia.

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.
Studio 4 Fitness’s personal trainers each boast at least a decade of fitness-training experience. They put their wealth of knowledge to use in prescribing exercises designed to generate the results a client is most interested in, whether that’s building general muscle mass or finally beating his or her boss in the cage-fighting portion of the quarterly review at the office. They hold their one-on-one sessions within the studio’s amply equipped workout rooms, where tractor tires flip past weight-lifting machines and resistance bands stretch the length of the room. In addition to fitness consultations, they offer chiropractic and massage services to help keep bones and muscles aligned and healthy as clients bulk up or lose weight.
LimeTime Fitness boasts rows of great equipment—including Cybex treadmills, spin bikes, and TRX Suspension Training—and a friendly staff on hand to teach patrons how to use the equipment properly. Like the Hulk’s interior-design scheme, all the gyms have a purple-and-green color motif, adding pops of vibrant color to the free-weight-lined facilities. Students in each LimeTime class receive a heart rate monitor so that they can keep track of calorie-burn count and learn how to stay in their targeted fat-burning zone to maximize fitness results.
