Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
A child covered in an ice-cream sundae is usually headed straight for a bath and a time-out. At CupCakes & IceCream Kids Spa and Party Room, however, they're pampered. At the spa, girls are encouraged to soak in soothing ice-cream baths made with their choice of sundae flavors. At spa stations decorated with cheerfully bright pinks and blues, kids can exfoliate their pores with a fruity facial made from natural ingredients or conclude manicures and pedicures with nontoxic Piggy Paint and sprinkles. Makeup sessions further pamper youngsters with beautifying touches such as lipstick, blushes, and facial gems.
Along with pampering children at the spa, CupCakes & IceCream Kids Spa and Party Room hosts soirees that treat girls like royalty.

Runway fashion shows and karaoke sessions fill the rest of the time, as can add-ons such as a craft station or lessons in boxing out during bouquet tosses.
