Tint World is more of a one-stop auto-enhancement shop than their name would suggest. They offer world-class tinting, of course, but also upgrade rides with audio and video equipment. To protect vehicles' surfaces from enduring scratches and dings they can apply clear bras and protection films. They can also customize wheels, rims, and vehicle wraps, as well as install auto security alarm systems. They care for more than cars, though, providing many of the same services for boats and yachts. Truck-drivers can accessorize with lifts, light bars, and brush guards. They even offer window film services for homes and commercial buildings.
Texas Toyota of Grapevine boasts an inventory of new Toyotas and used vehicles, sold and tended to at the dealership. Under the new management of Chris Grady, the business helps road-ready customers buy cars in two hours, and experienced technicians and a parts-and-service staff keep cars as healthy as a newborn Flintstones vitamin.
Health and Longevity Fitness takes a hands-on approach to physical fitness and health, starting with a complimentary nutritional consultation for new clients. Certified personal trainers design custom programs tailored to each trainee, which can range from tuning up muscles or athletic performance to rebuilding strength after physical therapy. Nutritional counseling keeps bodies trim outside the workout room, while Zumba, yoga, and muay-thai group classes cap attendance at a maximum of eight students or 16 centaurs.
The studio's setting and amenities dissociate themselves from overcrowded gyms, designating intimate exercise zones for each type of training. Across from treadmills, stair-climbers, and ellipticals in the cardio room, three 47-inch flat-screen televisions pipe in news from the world, sitcoms, or whatever channel you choose. Post-workout, clients wind down with a trip to the onsite massage therapist, or clean up in the tile and marble private showers.
As a high-schooler, Natalie Tailford became hooked on the sense of peaceful floating that comes from practicing yoga. Later as an adult, she found a way to get that feeling of inner floating both literally and mentally. After spending years in a cubicle, she left the corporate world and ventured out on her own to open Float On Yoga. She graduated from the Divine School of Yoga Therapy, and, as a certified yoga therapist, her average workday now includes meeting clients in breezy area parks. Using the calming waters of Lake Grapevine and Lake Lewisville as studios, Natalie or another Float on Yoga instructor teaches yoga to up to five pupils at a time as the class floats on standup paddleboards. The hybrid classes follow the mantra "Breathe, balance, float," which seeks to align body, mind, and water wings as students practice watery asanas and cobra poses.
Vetro Glass Blowing Studio & Art Gallery, winner of the WFAA-List’s award for best art gallery, offers the public an inside peek at renowned glass artists working on fragile creations. In a 30-minute, artist-instructed session, students help create one hand-blown, fluted glass bowl, choosing colors from among the vibrant Vetro palette.
While many people have the opportunity to peruse an artist's work at a gallery, they don't often get the chance to paint alongside them. But Wine and Palette brings admirers and creators together. Their classes, held at local cafes, restaurants, and bars, are led by talented local artists, who guide students of all artistic levels in re-creating one of their masterpieces step-by-step. They encourage their students to experiment with light, shadow, and scale. This boosts self-expression and results in unique versions of cityscapes, animals, and still-life portraits with squirrel skulls instead of oranges.
