Great minds think alike, and this was definitely true for Kyle Baxter—a professional tree climber—and Bridget Baxter—an accomplished high-school and college cross-country and track runner. Each certified instructor owned or worked at a local Bikram studio, but it wasn’t until they met at a Bikram yoga convention in 2006 that they discovered each other. Now the married couple oversees two Bikram yoga locations, which offer classes for students of any level seven days a week. Each studio is kept at a toasty 105 degrees, and sessions are led by a certified Bikram instructor who guides patrons through muscle-building and stretching poses that promote healthy, lean bodies. A large towel, yoga mat, and water bottle are recommended for each class, so the studios offer rental towels and mats for those whose dog ate their yoga mat along with their homework.
The helpful staff of Juiced on Imagination guides adults, children, and robots disguised as humans while they create artwork, helping them to express emotions through several different mediums. The class lineup explores a variety of different themes, including painting, collage, and creative journaling. Adult sessions allow students to bring along their favorite drinks as they paint landscapes or portraits. Kids' classes introduce little ones to traditional art styles and inventive techniques including creating art out of recycled materials, such as their parents' old Picassos. Each artistic offering hopes to nurture creativity and foster benefits such as increased self-esteem and lower stress levels.
It took Vincent Van Gogh years to complete his masterpieces, but students at Vino and VanCo classes only need a few hours. After fueling up on appetizers and drinks at Bondi Beach Bar & Grill, the class's pupils head over to Old Town Square. There, canvases, easels, and paints all await alongside that night's Van Gogh image, which the class recreates with the help of an expert instructor.
While Vino and VanCo students reproduce a renowned genius's work, most classes at VanCo School of Art are geared toward helping future masters refine their own pieces. Instructors train students of all ages in essential techniques, such as rendering semi-clothed models with materials like oil paint or charcoal still smoky from the grill. VanCo additionally caters classes to homeschooled pupils, as well as high school students readying their portfolio for college admissions.

The Fort Collins Club helps members feel comfortable in their own bodies by turning flabby flesh turtlenecks into slim, tailored skin suits. During the Club's daily group fitness, spinning, and yoga and Pilates mat classes, instructors guide guests on en masse exercise expeditions ranging from heart-pumping stepping exercises to muscle-toning asana sequences. Independent body-tenders can blaze their own calorie-strewn trails on the hardwood floors of hand, racquet, and basketball courts or the 35 feet of wall-crawling terrain on the indoor climbing wall. Family membership holders can also drop their tender progeny off in the Kids' Club so that they don’t gum up the finely tuned machinery with their oversized lollipops and welding torches.
