At the ASA-certified True North Sailing School, students learn to safely navigate vessels through wind and water during 21-hour basic sailing courses. The program blends classroom time with training on the water, and along the way, students learn to steer, name the different parts of the boat, and measure the wind's direction. Other, complementary classes teach sailors about more advanced sailing skills and spring fashion's new lifejackets. And for those looking for a sailing adventure, the school leads group excursions to tropical locales like the Caribbean, where the water temperature is always 75 degrees.

As a boy, Michael Colletti watched his immigrant father and grandparents prepare age-old family recipes they brought with them from their Sicilian home. He watched them in awe as they used ingredients, such figs and cardoons, from their own backyard to craft an array of traditional Italian dishes. Needless to say, this early fascination led him toward formal training as a grown-up, which launched him into a career as a chef and restaurateur. Since graduating from the Culinary Education Center, he has worked in restaurants lauded by the New York Times, helped found Good Stuff Eatery, and won the "Rachel Ray Burger Bash" contest at the 2009 Food & Wine Festival. After all this success, Chef Colletti decided to go back to his roots. To do this, he opened VB3 Restaurant, where he blends the Sicilian flavors of his youth with the wide array of culinary techniques he mastered as an adult.

Since opening, VB3 Restaurant has really become two restaurants in one. On the one hand, the dining room makes for an excellent place to enjoy a romantic meal featuring the chef’s roasted branzino or seasonal penne primavera, as well as live music and dancing. On the other hand, the take-out line provides easy access to the eatery’s Italian-style pizza—a specialty based on dough recipes a young Michael learned from his cousin, who came up with them during his stint living in an Italian oven.

At Duncan Martial Arts, instructor Gregory Duncan carries on his father’s legacy by teaching the Way of the Winds system. The first martial artists to bring ninjutsu to the United States, Gregory’s father, Professor Ronald Duncan, created a system that emphasizes rapid-fire striking patterns, evasive movements, and joint locking. Implementing elements of traditional taijutsu and jujitsu, the Way of the Winds system also includes education in traditional weaponry, such as sais, tonfa, han-bo, nunchakus, and more. Classes help build self-confidence and mental focus as students learn control over their bodies and responses to high-stress situations, such as a stranger approaching them in a dark alley and asking them to name all the vice presidents in alphabetical order. To expand upon the influences of Eastern fitness traditions, the center also offers yoga classes designed to center the mind and strengthen the body.

ImPower Pilates combines traditional Pilates, the endurance- and repetition-based core-building exercise pioneered by Joseph Pilates, with tailored training equipment capable of increasing strength, flexibility, and balance. During tower classes, which are limited to four students with one Pilates-certified instructor, students boldly strap in and stretch out over their powerful resistance-riddled frenemies with the “Wall Unit.” With each spring-loaded strain-seducing repetition, instructors and their followers alike work rarely used muscles, pushing the limits of their perseverance, and upping the chances of nabbing sidewalk change without breaking stride. Those who take the tower class should have Pilates-mat or Pilates-equipment training experience.

During rub*ology 101's 90-minute workshops, partners learn to knead and knuckle friends', roommates', or sweethearts' pains away under the guidance of licensed massage therapists. Students stay fully clothed in each class, which focuses on a specific body area and combines with the others to span the entire physique and form one giant, stress-fighting robot. In the Rubbing Shoulders / Head of the Class workshop, guides drag hands across knotted shoulders and necks to eliminate pains. Got Your Back illustrates how to allay aches by soothing the upper, middle, and lower back, and the Out on a Limb session arms friends with the ability to scare off arm, leg, and extremity aches by shaking tree branches at them. Scour the frequently asked questions for additional information and check the calendar for class availability.
