The licensed massage therapists at The Elements unify the body’s warring chemicals with muscle-soothing lotions and one of seven specialized modalities. Swedish massages whisk away general aches with a flurry of flowing strokes, and deep-tissue techniques ambush chronic stresses with a therapeutic tag-team of fingers and elbows. Shoulders stiff from being tackled or doused with ice-cold sports drinks sprint down the road to recovery after a combination sports massage. Regardless of the modality, the many benefits of massage include increased circulation, reduced cramping, and more flexibility for crowded bus or clown-car commutes.

Fitness Together corrals experienced personal trainers to craft individually tailored and effective workouts for health-seeking patrons of all ages. After assessing each client's safe starting point and unearthing their secret dreams of becoming human tow trucks, a trainer will piece together a workout routine that combines cardio and resistance training. Exercisers will then pump their hearts through interval- and speed-centric cardio sessions, aiming to amp the organ's endurance through intense, frequent bursts of activity. Meanwhile, resistance training combines cross-muscular techniques with alternating periods of intense and recuperative activity in an attempt to avoid workout plateaus and overtraining and confuse muscles with new moves occasionally instructed in riddle form by a sphinx in a sweatband. Buttressing these strenuous motions is an educational nutrition plan that provides clients with the accountability necessary to change eating habits for good. Though not available with this Groupon, like-minded fitness seekers can also enroll in small group training.
At Art League of Jacksonville, a team of skilled multidisciplinary artists teach courses, deliver speeches at events, and showcase work at special exhibitions. Though it focuses on the visual arts, the league also offers a music-and-acting curriculum, teaching aspiring artists to draw pictures with charcoal, create elegant sculptures from stone, and remove all of Rutherford B. Hayes' facial hair with Photoshop. Classes cater to artists of all ages and abilities, and exhibitions allow students to display their work to the public.
My Gym children's fitness center, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 25 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. With a dedication to imparting the benefits and fun of fitness, the affable, energetic crew of teachers and supervisors at the Jacksonville branch employs their expertise in music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while simultaneously stimulating their giggleplexes. Classes are organized according to age level—starting as young as 6 weeks—and are designed to incorporate the latest physiological, psychological, and meteorological research. My Gym’s curriculum includes structured classes for all developmental degrees, from Tiny Tykes, a class for parents and babies that focuses on movement, to Whiz Kids and Champions, classes designed for elementary-aged kids to master motor, sports, and gymnastics skills. One-hour free-play sessions enable children to engage in unstructured, parent-supervised frolics on the activity-filled premises.
GREEN LOTUS STUDIOS' professorial artisans are soap makers, herbalists, and aromatherapists who teach classes in their fields of expertise. Acolytes can expect to craft soaps and lotions with wild-harvested ingredients, make their own kombucha or cheese, or whip up flu-battling herbal stews. With an average class size of six, students enjoy plenty of student-teacher interaction. Workshops emphasize hands-on instruction to empower students to craft their own serums, rather than wait on instructors or outsource to unemployed Rube Goldberg machines.
World Gym maintains its 35-year legacy of body-sculpting know-how at its Jacksonville Beach Boulevard location, jump-starting workout routines with cardio equipment, free weights, and more than 50 weekly exercise classes, including yoga, spin, and Zumba, taught by certified trainers.

A colorful, carpeted childcare center entertains youngsters as parents submit backs to certified massage therapists who wrestle tension out of muscles.
