At Planet Beach Contempo Spa, automated spa treatments massage away tension, deploy heat and steam to soften skin, and restore complexions’ glow. Ears nestle into headphones that coo mermaid calls as clothed guests lie down on a hydro-massage bed, on which cloth-covered waves gently crash upon corporeal shores to ebb away tension. Infrared heat and nutrient-rich steam exhaled by a health-conscious dragon soothe, moisturize, and promote collagen production during a 20-minute Hydro-Derma Fusion treatment. For a more obvious glow, UV and Mystic spray tans gild pelts.
David Robinson has studied the value of hard work and exercise throughout his life, from competing in the Junior Olympics to serving in the US Marine Corps. Now, he runs Fitness Together to share those same lessons with others through his personal-training programs. David and his fellow trainers coach clients one-on-one or in small groups, combining three different programs to maximize results. They use the cross-muscular resistance-training philosophy of the Aspire 8 program to build strength. Interval and tempo workouts from the Cardio Together program are also tossed into the mix alongside the Nutrition Together program's meal planning and nutritional education.
Kaluby's Dance Club takes the same simple approach to teaching that the club used when it opened in 1983. Before playing a note, the instructors take the time to break down popular dances into their most basic patterns. This way, when the music starts, dancers of all skill levels are able to master the steps quickly so that they can focus on having fun so instead of whose toes they're stepping on. The studio shares their secrets in group and private lessons, both taught in a ballroom where members are also welcome to practice during any open studio hours. In children's classes, kids practice basic dance moves while also making new friends, exercising, and learning how to behave at charity galas. During club dance parties, members get the chance to show off their new dance skills in special themed events or dressy-casual gatherings.

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 to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. 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.
