The self-described "compulsive" technicians at Pamper Your Auto Detailing Spa pour their obsession into beautifying every detail on the cars, trucks, boats, and motorcycles that roll into their Gainesville shop. They perform hand washes dried with soft chamois cloth to kick off exterior auto detail services, adding extra indulgences such as leather conditioners, clay-bar treatments, and protective Teflon sprays. Their paintless techniques free doors from dings, and their intensive buffing treatments free boats from rust patches posing as barnacles.

Ford, Lincoln, & Hyundai of Gainesville takes meticulous care of cars with The Works—an oil change that comes with a side of tire rotation and multipoint inspection. Thirsty motors gulp down up to 5 quarts of synthetic-blend oil as a factory-trained technician changes the oil filter for easy, clean lubrication. Additional quarts of oil can be purchased for $2.50 each. An auto aficionado will rotate your tires and give a thorough once-over to vehicles about to hit the streets after 30 minutes. Cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans made by Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, Saturn, and more are eligible for the much-deserved lubrication rejuvenation.

Working up a sweat is often seen as the prerequisite to getting in shape, but at Abstract Bodyworks, that's simply not the case. That's because the studio's trainers keep the studio cooled to 65 degrees, diminishing the body's need to sweat while preserving the benefits of exercise. Clients can even work out in their regular clothes, and there's no need to shower afterward.

The refreshingly cool temperature isn't the only thing that sets Abstract Bodyworks apart from other gyms. For one thing, the studio specializes in working with clients 40 and older, using movements requiring minimal force to help with chronic back and neck pain. For another, one-on-one full-body resistance training sessions last just 15 minutes—a convenient length for clients with busy schedules. Finally, the sessions are held in a private room without mirrors, allowing students to burn calories and tone their muscles without distractions.

Michael Husky's Automotive Detailing spruces up cars with an expansive menu of cleaning services. As dashboard bobbleheads nod with approval, skilled technicians lift grime from deep within vehicle carpets and meticulously wipe down upholstery to an eye-pleasing sheen. As with a movie review from an utterly inconsiderate friend, no spoiler is left behind. The team hand washes car exteriors, buffs panels, and cleans windows to total transparency. Husky's also offers home pressure-washing services to remove mud from driveways and dirty magnetic poetry from refrigerator doors.
