Mill Pond Arts Allentown's staff of pianists, drummers, guitarists, and singers pull out all the stops when it comes to teaching budding musicians. Their private lessons dole out student-specific tips and exercises, group classes allow kids to learn from their peers, and camps—including Broadway boot camp and Camp Xpress—help people overcome stage fright with games and performances. To help youngsters outside of class, Mill Pond hosts the Theta Music Trainer, an online program designed to sharpen ears and shepherd them toward perfect pitch.
Since 1979, the staff of Lehigh Valley Racquet and Fitness Clubs has made it their mission to obliterate any barriers keeping their members from working out. Each club is open 24 hours a day year-round, with free childcare available during specific times of day. That commitment to availability helps even the busiest people find time to hop on Hammer Strength and Cybex strength-training circuits, StairMasters, and other equipment. Group fitness classes get students sweating as they execute punches in Turbo Kick cardio-kickboxing sessions or dance to Zumba's Latin-inspired workouts. Full-body boot-camp workouts are also available, mixing in calisthenics, strength training, and agility drills to continuously challenge bodies. All of the clubs? personal trainers hold bachelor's degrees in health-related fields or have national certifications from accredited organizations.
After their workouts, members can unwind in the whirlpool, sauna, or steam rooms, then drop off their free rental towels for cleaning. For sports lovers, the Allentown location also boasts basketball, volleyball, squash, and badminton courts, as well as 11 outdoor and 8 indoor tennis courts.

No men, no makeup, no mirrors. It’s a pretty stringent philosophy, but it’s one that’s helped members of the Curves community since 1992. Part fitness center, part support group, Curves is a women’s only club that takes a streamlined approach to health, fitness, and weight loss. Full-body, 30-minute workouts combine strength training, cardiovascular exercises, and stretching into calorie-torching sessions, enhanced further by the Curves Complete Program. The program, available at an extra fee, supplements efforts at the gym with personalized meal plans and weekly one-on-one meetings with a certified Curves coach. Outside the facility, members and non-members alike can purchase a variety of Curves products, from workout apparel and accessories to the protein powders and vitamins used to build strength or distract people from all of the caterpillars in your medicine cabinet.
