The color chuckers at Paint Slingers aid visitors of all experience levels in the creation of personalized paintings.

World Gym jump-starts fitness routines with cardio machines, free weights, and 35 years of body-sculpting know-how. Instead of eating a spicy burrito or betting a pristine collection of Choose Your Own Adventure books on a poker hand to work up a sweat, guests may watch cliffhangers on a fleet of TVs as they trot on treadmills and pedal stationary bikes. Tanning equipment shades skin during World Gym's staffed hours, and seasoned personal trainers divulge their calorie-slaying wisdom during informative consultations and workouts, available by appointment. After running, jumping, lifting, or curling up in the corner with a good book, patrons may retire to the changing room or pick up their gear in available lockers. Additionally, a key grants patrons access to the facilities 24 hours a day, seven days a weeks.

Lucille Allen used to work with executives at tech companies. One day, though, she started training in the Bishnu Gosh lineage of yoga, and now she leads patrons through poses in warm rooms at Sterling Hot Yoga Works. Those rooms are heated to 104 degrees with 40% humidity, which helps muscles gain flexibility and move easily into different stances in sessions that last either 60 or 90 minutes. Drawing upon years of experience, Allen and her staff put those yoga poses to work to improve health and mental wellbeing alike. She'll even work with aspiring yoga instructors, providing the skills to lead classes on their own.
