Below the red-and-blue logo of Holistic Retreat & Institute floats the phrase, "Learn, heal, grow," underscoring the center's commitment to making health and education accessible to all. Founder Dr. Alya Shabunin provides a diverse range of holistic and educational services to help her patients make lifestyle changes that can bring about overall wellness. She leads cancer-prevention educational programs, heads up holistic retreats, and guides patients through whole-body detoxification, which can induce weight loss more easily than removing several teeth. She also holds free weekly seminars to raise awareness about disease prevention, proper nutrition, and stress reduction.

At Gold's Gym, a nationwide fitness franchise in business more than 45 years, novice and veteran athletes alike torch calories and tone cores in group exercise classes, with free weights, and on cardio machines. Classes are scheduled seven days a week at both of the West Springfield and Chicopee locations, where booties shrink to Latin-inspired jams with Zumba and muscles stave off boredom in high-intensity interval training sessions. Other classes include PiYo, which crunches cores through a fusion of yoga and Pilates, and RPM, an indoor cycling workout during which pedalers climb simulated peaks and giant bean stalks as energy-boosting music reverberates through frames. Before embarking upon fitness journeys, new members can participate in a series of free training and nutrition appointments. Both locations boast childcare services, full-service juice bars, tanning booths, and nametags for those who become unrecognizable in their newly sculpted bodies.

The consortium of professional instructors at Charlotte Ballroom Dance Academy shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Paired with a partner or teamed up with instructor-founders Zenaida and Bryon Chandler—Latin and Showdance and Open Smooth champions, respectively—students can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or mambo. Dancers can develop their skills and confidence in private and group lessons or during jovial practice parties, where they'll trip the light fantastic without tripping on the light itself. Charlotte Ballroom Dance Academy also hosts occasional specialty classes, such as Cardio Ballroom, and leads betrothed couples through special wedding-dance lessons.
