In the words of Pablo Picasso, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." The teachers at Pinot's Palette solve that problem with a bit of vine-grown inspiration. Held in studios equipped with ice buckets, corkscrews, and wine glasses, art classes encourage students to bring drinks and hors d'oeuvres to enjoy during the session. Stroke-by-stroke, pupils recreate either an original image selected or designed by their instructor, or a classic painting by the likes of Van Gogh. All classes include canvases, brushes, imaginary muses, and paints.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
