With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Sprawled out across 4,400 acres of public land and facilities, Mill Creek MetroParks attracts nearby humans with recreational activities such as boating and fishing. Rentals—which are available Wednesday–Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.—allow lounge-arounders to abandon dry land and its tendency to get dirt on everything by hopping aboard a boat with a ninesome of loved ones, then gliding off to explore 44 acres of steel-blue ripples surrounded by soothing emerald foliage. The nearby trails, gardens and Visitor & Education Center make it possible to extend the adventure even after the 60 minutes of floating are up.

Housed inside the Old B&O Train Station, Rust Belt brews nine craft beers, with a handful more scheduled for release early next year. Each Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., fans of yeast and hops can gather 'round head brewer Lee Gidley as he guides them on a tour of the brewery, showing them equipment, explaining the brewing process, and doling out samples of the luscious liquid gold. When the half-hour tour concludes, everyone receives a commemorative Rust Belt Brewery T-shirt, a souvenir pint glass, and a jolly memory to overtake the brain space currently inhabited by knowledge of the Gigli plot. If the tour inspires a powerful thirst for more, Rust Belt sells growlers of their guzzleables to take home, and the neighboring Boxcar Lounge has Rust Belt on tap.

Renters of the Vault Lounge saunter past Imbibe Martini Bar's open-to-the-public service area, through a fortified door, and into the converted 100-year-old First Federal Bank saferoom, where they can kick off the most exclusive of festivities. Pop a bottle of bubbly surrounded by classic woodwork and wine racks, toasting to both the classy confines and the newfound knowledge of how it feels to be a million bucks.
