One of the major hurtles to starting an exercise program is the fear of falling behind in a fitness class that's over your head. That's why The Fitness Station's personal-training sessions take a four-stage approach that ensures bodies can adapt and build endurance before attempting skills that require strength and power. Their group classes are just as accommodating—supportive instructors foster a welcoming environment in small-group training, yoga, and Zumba sessions designed to burn calories and melt fat while building functional strength.
At JayVee Dance Center, children learn more than the techniques to impress audiences. As they master ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop moves, they also gain life-long values, such as self-esteem, discipline, and a sense of responsibility. The youth classes—catering to kids as young as age 2—include the staple sessions, but also branch out into unexpected disciplines such as Tahitian hula and break dance, which boldly breaks all the rules of the Hokey Pokey. The adult schedule is just as diverse, covering fitness-oriented areas such as Zumba, pole fitness, and [Streetease], which is a saucy combination of pole fitness, burlesque, and hip-hop.
Dreamwork's couch-studded office may look ordinary and comfy at first glance, but it is actually so far advanced into the realms of spic and span that it verges on alien. The dental equipment uses filtered water, ensuring that you'll experience not just a hygienic environment but that you'll be able to rinse and spit with class. Doctor Dreamwork himself, Steven Lee, will gently peer deep into your mouth for signs of trouble, take pictures of your teeth for the office yearbook, and address any concerns, pains, or existential ennui before degunking your charming chompers of caked-on spinach and bird nests.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Hot pads for different parts of the body, oils, and pain-relieving gel.
What are some of your most popular services? Why do you think clients love them so much?
Our most popular service is our 90-minute traditional Chinese and Swedish massage. Clients love it because it helps relieve their pain and helps them relax at the same time.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
We have several clients that used to take sleeping pills every day, but since they [started] coming for our foot and body massages, they no longer need them. That's the reason I opened my spa—I love it when my clients say we made their day.
