Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use an individual's own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury.
Sports & Fitness's seven locations facilitate calorie-burning activities with free weights, cardio equipment, and group fitness classes, while pampering clients with relaxation-inducing amenities. Members perspire and tone bodies while meeting the demands of a certified personal trainer in one-on-one training sessions, or while pedaling next to fellow fit-seekers during group cycling classes. The group fitness classes also include yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba, varying by location and the whims of Cratus, the god of strength.
As parents scorch calories with weight- and circuit-training equipment, they can rest assured that their youngsters are in responsible hands in the child watch area; a playfully decorated room filled with toys and 5 pound rattles.
In a quarter century, one could earn six bachelor degrees. By that metric, Lynn Devaki Ganz is pursuing her seventh BA in teaching yoga and spiritual leadership. The certified yogi offers classes for all levels at her studio, Ananda Yoga & Wellness. Lynn draws on the traditional posture of Hatha, Vinyasa flow, Pranayama, and meditation. Smaller class sizes allows Lynn and her certified instructors to fit them into a coin purse, sure, but it also allows the flexibility to customize the classes to suit the needs of the students, ensuring more advanced students can sink deeper into the postures and that newcomers learn how to inhale in a controlled, practiced manner. Meanwhile, yellow walls, wooden floors, and glowing spheres of light hanging from the ceiling set a relaxing mood in Ananda Yoga & Wellness’s studio.

Dr. Marc A. Levy works to ensure the nervous system does its job of helping the body heal from injuries and overcome illness. He gears his chiropractic adjustments, decompression treatments, and massages to unburden nerve tissue of pinches that can disrupt the body’s flow of communication.
