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. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches 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.

Beaver Island State Park stretches out over 950 acres at the southern end of Grand Island, on the shores of the upper Niagara River. The park's sandy half-mile beach welcomes swimmers and boaters. Nearby, an 80-slip marina with a boat launch lets mariners set sail in boats, kayaks, canoes, or origami yachts made from newspaper. Landlubbers swing clubs at an 18-hole championship golf course, venture down biking and hiking trails, and unpack picnic baskets on the park's scenic grounds. Guests seeking a break from the sun can visit a nature center with interactive exhibits on local flora and fauna. Guests also can drop by the River Lea house and museum, home to the Grand Island Historical Society and constructed by Grover Cleveland's cousin. In the winter, the park hosts snowmobilers, skiers, and snowshoers willing to brave the frigid air and rabid snowmen.

The certified personal trainers, licensed massage therapists, and physical therapists at Hive Lifespan Center all operate beneath an invisible umbrella of wellness. They continually widen their reach to cover the needs of those who enter the practice, uniting the spectrums of fitness, health, and nutrition services.

The gym floor buzzes with iPod-compatible cardio equipment and strength circuits, and specialty studios provide focused zones for spinning, Pilates, and yoga. The conditioning studio hosts the resistance workouts of TRX suspension training and the core-tightening moves of Ab-Lab. Interactive tracking programs such as exerspy and eFitnessSystem tools can chart factors such as calories burned and daily steps taken without hiring a private investigator to follow each foot. The health component of the center prevents and rehabilitates injuries with chiropractic, massage, and physical-therapy treatments.

Modern decor throughout the venue complements the contemporary idea of wellness integration. A 1960s-inspired concrete wall carved in a grid of flowering squares runs throughout the space, and as if to match its blooms, the towels stacked by the spa-like locker rooms emit scents of eucalyptus and lavender, much like a koala that has just gotten out of the shower.

Additionally, the boutique med spa's technicians harness the power of light energy to remove unwanted hairs, reduce wrinkles, and dissolve scars resulting from competitive pillow fighting. Clients may also schedule one-on-one consultations with Dr. Cangé to discuss eligibility for antiaging injections of Botox Cosmetic, Restylane, or Juvéderm XC.
