To help busy exercisers fold workouts into their hectic schedules, the staff at Fitness Lab Jax developed their 30-minute circuit workout. At Fitness Lab Jax, founder Noha Soliman and her staff of nine trainers incorporate a slew of fitness styles into their classes, including core-strengthening Pilates and boot camp. They draw some of these moves into personal-training sessions, as well as TRX Suspension, during which exercisers’ arms, legs, or tentacles are elevated in hanging straps to further strengthen and lengthen muscles. To partner with their fitness services, the staff also devises nutritional plans and recommends the proper dietary supplements.

Founded by the owners of Bikram Yoga Fort Lauderdale, Prana Massage and Beauty flung open its doors in October 2012. Nestled inside the Progresso Plaza building, the handsome studio overlooks a courtyard that emanates a peaceful feeling and mirrors the sense of tranquility the staff imparts to each of their guests. Their eclectic selection of massages includes both therapeutic and relaxation-focused treatments. Hot-stone massages incorporate flat stones that are warmed to nearly 140 degrees?the temperature of a planet humans could theoretically colonize, but only if allowed to gripe about the heat. Swedish massage, alternatively, uses a rhythmic combination of long, sliding, and gliding strokes to relieve tension. The staff also peels away hair on both men and women with full-body waxing and offers threading as an alternative for those with sensitive skin.

An indoor/outdoor paradise perched on the edge of the Atlantic, SiSpa at Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort broadcasts the soothing sounds of the ocean directly from the ocean. Creamy earth tones drape a palatial arrangement of three treatment rooms, where massage therapists coddle the senses with heated stones and aromatherapy. The signature massage experience blends gentle Swedish strokes with targeted deep tissue pressure and even nautilus shells?therapists use them to knead the back in a wave-like motion learned from real mermaid massage therapists.
Elsewhere, aestheticians treat blemishes and signs of aging with traditional facials or, furthering the aquatic theme, moisturizing, exfoliating HydraFacials. They also sculpt nails during mani-pedis at throne-like nail stations and wax away unwanted hair.
A childhood spent on the beach turned into a big business for the family behind the Boucher Brothers. They started the business in 1987 and continue to serve hotels, condos, and public beaches with concessions and beach rentals on Florida’s coasts, at Virginia Beach, and on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago. They take beachgoers parasailing above the waves and rent out a slew of equipment that includes Waverunners, boogie boards, and kayaks. Alternatively, landlubbers can sun themselves on lounge chairs or take shelter from the sun's rays in a cabana, beneath an umbrella, or in the shadow of a highly trained cumulus cloud. As a testament to the staff's dedication to pampering patrons, Boucher Brothers has received the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences' Five Star Diamond Award for 10 years running.
