Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags.

Since 1967, the Pia family has owned and operated The Fashion Valet, where they clean, alter, and preserve garments using green cleaning techniques. They offer pickup and drop-off services, which grant customers the option to leave their unkempt clothing at home, in the office, or draped over nearby scarecrows. In addition to purifying grimy duds, the Pias hand press delicate apparel to safely eliminate wrinkles and give items a professionally finished look.
Chef Gwynn Galvin combines her culinary craftsmanship with the entrepreneurial guidance of her son Bryan Mueller to churn out more than 30 varieties of homemade, artisan cupcakes. Gwynn shrinks her signature cheesecake into a microcosm of goodness with cheesecake cupcakes (a $29 value/dozen), dishing out decadent meal-sealers in flavors such as cappuccino cheesecake, peanut-butter-cup cheesecake, and classic Italian cheesecake. Regular cupcakes ($23/dozen) include perennial tongue-pleasers such as red velvet, mochachino, and blackout brownie, a palm's worth of brownie cake with milk-chocolate ganache topping and the ability to erase one's memory. Fruity flavors such as lip-smacking lemon, caribbean coconut, and orangesicle make a light, fluffy treat for brunch dessert or a pre-marathon snack.
Though the staff of Lana’s Place is adept at everything from tinting and cutting hair to grooming and polishing nails to administering effective body-slimming treatments, one look at the menu of services makes it clear that the eclectic salon’s main focus is skin. The team of skilled aestheticians uses a range of tools and ingredients to lend potency to its skincare services, including 24-karat gold that refines skin and microneedles that smooth wrinkles by spurring the body’s natural collagen production. The menu of services includes a mix of relaxing and problem-targeting treatments to help clients keep their minds clear and their skin glowing, much like meditating with a squirm of glow worms. This skin-pampering focus even extends to other salon treatments, where aestheticians might incorporate skin-smoothing products into pedicures, massages, and waxing treatments.
