Within an expansive 18,000-square-foot gymnasium, leotard-clad children and adults spring from gymnast equipment, honing skills for tumbling and trapeze to dance and overall fitness. Nova programs transform all ages of bodies with lessons from current and ex-circus performers, and the staff opens their doors after school for kids to come and play while developing cognitive, motor, and social skills. The camps are a crash course in gymnastics—extremely useful when escaping bears in a wooded forest—and the gym hosts birthday parties by granting access to trampolines, bounce houses, and rock-climbing areas.
Crave Fitness's founder, Yaniv Rosenberg, applies a lifelong enthusiasm for fitness and martial arts to boot camp, Krav maga, kickboxing, and jiujitsu classes for all ages and ability levels. During boot-camp classes based on training regimens from the U.S. military and Israeli Defense Force, experienced instructors wring every ounce of effort from students of all skill levels, fueling the all-out workouts with words of encouragement and regular trips through a rift in the time-space continuum to get glimpses of their svelte future selves. Sessions change on a daily basis to test muscles with a combination of cardiovascular exercises, abdominal work, agility drills, obstacle-course challenges, and blindfolded Sudoku puzzles.
Inside The Legacy Art Studio, there's an extensive library of art books, reference materials, and biographies of iconic artists. It's fitting, then, that the studio was built on the disciplines and technical skills passed on through art history, and found in the pages of those books, all without discounting contemporary methods.
In 2004, founder Nilda Maria Comas decided to pick up where ancient Greek sculptors and Renaissance painters left off. The Puerto Rican–born master artist rooted her studio in academic training, and speaks the universal languages of drawing, painting, and sculpture—along with Spanish, English, Italian, and French. When she's not leading students on educational journeys abroad, Nilda can be found at her Fort Lauderdale studio teaching others how to paint masterpieces, sculpt lifelike creations, or draw the winning lottery numbers.
