The trainers at Beach Bunny Bodies slim down their students with one-hour boot-camp sessions and nutritional advice. Their sample diet plan suggests that women eat wholesome, small meals that maximize protein intake and minimize play-doh consumption. Exemplary eats include hard-boiled eggs, low-fat yogurt, and fruit kebabs. Their classes accommodate women of all ages and sizes, who spend 60 minutes performing circuit workouts, functional training, mat exercises, and short-distance running, among other challenges. Instructors make motivation the centerpiece of their campaign to improve the health of their students. Over the course of about six weeks, participants may see tangible results as dramatic as a reduction of two dress sizes or one performance of Hamlet in which Hamlet wears not one but two dresses.

Originally, Chic Home was a luxury floral shop, specializing in bouquets that never wilted. Nowadays, though, their custom silk flowers are just one of the stylish decorative touches displayed in the 4,000-square-foot shop. The rotating vignette show rooms, for example, capture styles ranging from rustic French countryside to pure Prince whimsy, and their team of design experts makes house calls to help clients capture the same milieus—or totally different ones—at home. For smaller projects, such as repainting a room, the team also hosts DIY classes, and sells paint a la carte, in hues ranging from Fireworks Red to Imperceptible Infrared.

The teachers at Wine and Canvas believe anyone can be artist. In fact, they draw out skills from people who have never even held a paintbrush before. To do this, they guide participants step-by-step through the process of replicating a painting during three-hour classes held at different restaurants and bars throughout the city. To keep each class fresh, they regularly change up the selected masterpieces, which can be anything from the Eiffel Tower at night to an abstract rendering of trees. No matter what and where they teach, though, they always supply students with all the necessary accoutrements, including paints, canvases, aprons, and pronunciation guides for realistic French-accents. The one thing they don't supply is wine, allowing guests to choose for themselves what to drink at the venues' full bars.

These nights on the town are for adults only, but they do host kid-friendly cookie and canvas nights for children wanting to discover or flex their artistic chops.

When Gerald Bennett began work as head chef at the InterContinental Hotel in Cleveland, he was accustomed to whipping up dishes for celebrity clientele. But when the royal family of Dubai came to visit and he served them in their opulent suite, he never thought they'd ask him to leave with them as their personal chef. Since returning to the states and stepping into his role as the president of the Private Chef Association, Gerald has worked to bring his gastronomic prowess to the masses through Food Fun Adventure’s classes and tours. He passes along a visible passion for culinary fusion, which shines through in dishes blending French and Thai or American and German influences.

Culinary tours take participants to local sushi houses, steak houses, and bistros, each highlighting specialty dishes. When head chefs come out to greet their visitors, they often divulge culinary secrets and answer questions about curfew hours for free-range ingredients while doling out tapas and other small plates.

In a more hands-on culinary experience, customers gather in classes and learn to refine dishes based on a chosen theme. Using mostly local and organic ingredients in two kitchen classrooms, chefs show students how to craft delicacies such as scallion waffles with orange-zest chicken and tagine-roasted rack of lamb. In one kitchen, which doubles as an art gallery, knives flick through ingredients, and pots clatter at island stations and small burners. The company’s event center, Heaven, fills with chatter as up to 40 pairs of students filter in. Beneath projectors for screening chef demonstrations and documentaries about the life of a paring knife, separate kitchens equipped with ovens and burners fill with the bustle of creation, which gives way to reverent exhalations as patrons finally sample the fruits of their labor.
