Talin Lyman's delicate brushstrokes cover the walls of a former U.S. vice president's winter home, frescoes within InterContinental hotels in Tuscany and Rome, and furniture that adorns Martha Stewart's own abode. From canvases to murals to throws of pillows designed for people and pets, the virtuosic painter daubs blank spaces with flora and fauna inspired by her childhood spent traveling to far-flung countries with her missionary father. Lyman also throws open the doors of her studio for an array of classes geared toward adults—such as Painting to the Oldies—and children, where she intersperses hands-on activities with lessons about great moments in art history, such as the day Georges Seurat invented the polka dot.
Helmed by Stefanie Ellis, a team of expert instructors leads a roster of classes designed to help guests bolster their core, strength, and posture. In addition to equipment-heavy Pilates courses, these passionate fitness gurus lead heart-intensive Core Cardio classes, ballet-inspired barre classes, yoga lessons, and spinning sessions replete with pulsing tunes, music videos, and the speed-inspiring chirps of cheetahs.
Devised by Pure Barre founder Carrie Rezabek, these fusion classes will work your body in ways it's never been worked before by balancing the grace of dance with the exertion of lifting and the soothing stretching of stretching. Each 55 to 60-minute session loosens, strengthens, and lengthens the body through the perfect blend of the ballet barre, weight training, and limber Pilates. In the process, you'll tone your tush, thighs, hips, arms, and abs while burning fat efficiently and blocking out the invasive anxieties of the real world, such as the lingering dread that squirrels are evolving faster than us and will soon overtake us on the food chain.

Though Boca Gym's array of Life Fitness and Hammer Strength machines commands an impressive 1,000 square feet of space, the gym's staff is anything but robotic. The certified personal trainers and instructors strive to call everyone by name, whether they are assisting with deadlifts or running a kickboxing class—one of more than 40 group fitness classes scheduled per week. Their bright attitude complements the light that streams through floor-to-ceiling windows, and the neon-pink glow of the studio's walls.
The staff welcomes guests of every age and background to explore the facility, which includes a childcare area, tanning, and a juice bar. Instead of volunteering to climb and light the town's lampposts, members who wish to work out at night can swipe their 24-hour access card at the door.
Chef Andrew Bennardo puts his two culinary degrees and a certification as a raw chef from the Living Food Academy to work during informative cooking classes. Focusing on Italian cuisines, his hands-on sessions get students learning by doing. For the culinarily curious with dietary restrictions, other classes focused on vegan cuisines use top-shelf ingredients to help students craft vegan pizzas and raw vegan lasagne. Throughout the class, students taste their handiwork along with chef-selected wine pairings.
