Anytime Fitness, as the name suggests, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year with nonstop security. Novice calorie burners and ripped Michelangelo models alike can take advantage of a one-month membership, which equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, and weights to train them to run a marathon inside of a swimming pool filled with mud. Highlight the results of fat-frying and muscle-mass-magnifying sessions with one month of unlimited tanning in high-powered beds that paint ripply physiques a brilliant shade of bronze.
With the exception of the Englewood location, all City Bark locations provide self-wash tubs for expedient DIY doggie dunking (about $10 for 30 minutes without shampoo, $11.50 with shampoo; rates vary slightly by location). These specially designed tubs ensure safe and easy dog baths, pleasant for person and pup alike. City Bark provides numerous accoutrements to make the slather sessions go swimmingly, including waterproof aprons, a variety of doggie shampoos, towels, and dryers for preventing post-bath shake-spray. After donning the apron, place your pal in a waist-high tub, specially designed for safe and simple bath time that beats crouching on the tiles of a home lavatory while your dog writhes and splashes, ruining freshly acquired lavender soap angels and terrifying the neighbors with plaintive howling.

Photographer Michelle Rubi Solis isn't satisfied with a good picture. Instead, she keeps snapping photos until she gets one that captures the "little twinkle" in a subject's eye. It's likely not very hard to do as she specializes in fairy-tale portrait sessions, which take place in a magical forest setting complete with giant mushrooms and friendly forest creatures. A special background machine makes changing the scenery or adding in a UFO a snap.
Solis also transforms young women into fairy princesses with her Enchanted photo shoots, which sport vivid and romantic colors after a photo-editing session.
Blake Dieters stalks his prey like a seasoned hunter, but his target isn’t big game. Behind the lens of his trusty camera, he bags the fleeting memories and precious keepsakes that gave his company its name. Citing the portraits of Arnold Newman, Annie Leibovitz, and Robert Mapplethorpe as his inspiration, Blake renders subjects in striking black-and-white tableaus during individual and group sittings. Though he stages most photo shoots inside his studio, his love of Colorado's wilderness draws him outside for on-location photo shoots as well. After the sessions end and the subjects pick their poses, Blake prints the digitally edited photos onto professional-grade, luster-finish paper suitable for framing or use in a very expensive game of paper football.
