At Whimsy Paint & Sip, art lovers of all ages and experience levels can spend time in Picasso's disproportionate shoes, painting and pairing their artistic efforts with a cocktail, glass of wine, or nonalcoholic beverage from the menu (additional purchase required). Creative treks commence when the artistically inclined pre-select an easy-to-paint canvas masterpiece they'd like to recreate from the shop's calendar, which includes a plethora of natural and whimsical options alongside classics such as Monet's Bridge Over Water Lilies and Van Gogh's Sunflowers. The events take place under the palette-primed eye of one of Whimsy’s professional artists, who lead broods of brushers through each stroke, all over the inspirational din of funky tunes. All supplies (which are mostly made in the United States), including the canvas, paints, and easels, are provided by the studio. When the paint clears, each former fingerpainter will have a wall-ready piece created by their very own hands, lending a more personal touch to any bare foyer, lifeless living room, or less-than-stunning meat locker.

On the third Saturday of every month, parents and tots cut a rug on the ballroom dance floor at FamilyDance Planet during the company's signature two-hour dance event. The dance party is the brainchild of guitar player and singer Kristin McLean, who believes that music has the power to strengthen familial ties. Kristin also leads Magical Music classes, during which preschoolers sing songs in multiple languages, try out different instruments, and dance with scarves. In addition, the center offers Family Song Music classes, where all members of the family are encouraged to participate in sing-a-longs.

The philosophical umbrella over all the various training programs at RFLX Training Center is simple: positive change. The instructors believe that encouraging their students to change and grow for the better improves not only their physical skills but also their outlook on life. Their expertise allows them to offer a variety of programs that include combat arts such as muay thai kickboxing, brazilian jiu jitsu, and standard boxing. From a practical standpoint, they also lead self-defense classes including those focused on bullies and tactical training for law enforcement. Techniques from all those classes are brought together during fitness-based sessions such as cardio kickboxing and MMA MetaFit classes that combine strikes and kicks with effective strength- and endurance-building workouts. Patrons looking for a tough-love approach to weight loss are encouraged to try the Body Transformation Challenge.
