Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags.
Envy Nails' troop of nail-honing technicians crafts sleek, stylish digits with spa treatments, decorative nail designs, and a smooth finish of OPI polish. To kick things off, patrons remove their shoes and ventriloquist dummies so staffers can get to work buffing and filing nails on feet and hands, sending wayward cuticles back to their nail-base homes. Utilizing the grainy ministrations of a sea-salt scrub, aestheticians slough away roughened skin to unveil smooth epidermal expanses before guiding limbs into a paraffin dip, which works to seal in more moisture than Davy Jones's line of tupperware. Staffers then adorn nails with a seamless coat of OPI polish, creating smudge-free finger accessories in the client's color of choice. Patrons opting for nail designs can opt to bedeck their big toes and thumbs in a variety of spirals, flowers, or artistic depictions of sock tyranny.
Inside the softly lit Bonjour Nails & SPA, a long row of plush pedicure chairs with built in baths flank one wall, and strategically lit nail stations fill the other. Patrons entering the serene space can have a seat in the cozy waiting area or peruse the racks of colorful lacquer offered in regular and long-wearing formulas before indulging in meticulous manicures and pedicures. In a private treatment room free from adolescent loiterers, skin mavens ease muscle tension with neck, shoulder, and Swedish massages, or sculpt brows into shapely arches with waxing services.
Helming the staff at Body Boutique, Kimberly Fasano packs two decades of experience as a stylist and colorist in her tool belt. Her team tends to the hair, skin, nails, and muscles, with the goal of making each visitor look and feel their best.

All of the products at Trendz are custom mixed to the salon's exacting standards, and the mani-pedi services benefit the most from this attention. Pour your hardworking digits a drink with the amazingly scented piña colada mani-pedi, beginning with a smoothing exfoliant scrub to polish away calluses and rough spots. When your limb termini are smoothed, your hand-shakers and potato-kickers will soak in a warming bath, followed by a nail shaping and cuticle treatment with hydrating pineapple oil for all 20 of your keratin-based tips. Trendz's expert nail-whisperers will gently massage your hands and feet, lightly exfoliating your heels before moving on to the buffing and polishing stage, which readies your digits for their close-up with your chosen shade of rich OPI lacquer.
