Within Best Impressions Hair & Nail Salon, Traci Kennedy deftly shapes and decorates digits with high-end CND and OPI polishes.

Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis. Instead of guests fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches each exerciser's abilities. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, machines use push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Every thigh- or torso-transformer is equipped with the CurvesSmart personal-coaching system, which uses programmed information on weight, endurance level, and fitness goals to automatically calibrate the perfect challenge for individual bodies. The CurvesSmart system also delivers a postworkout rundown on the strength built and progress achieved during each session. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and to squirt overheated guests with a Super Soaker.
Imagine That Salon’s staff primps clients with hair and nail services, and it has a house color specialist trained by Redken International. Together, the staffers boast more than 57 years of experience, which they bring to bear during haircuts and extensions, facial waxing, and manicures and pedicures rendered with OPI nail and gel polish. Their salon has a clean, colorful look, with pastel yellows and bluish greens going easy on the eyes—unlike letter-chart tests at an optometrist’s office. Framed art informs the aesthetic of just about every room, whether it’s the lobby furnished with magazines and a TV or one of the treatment rooms outfitted with a cushy leather pedicure throne.
During one of TenCycling's not-so-traditional spinning classes, the studio's RealRyder patented articulating bikes lean and move just like real bicycles, simulating the experience of pedaling down the scenic slopes of a mountain road or up and down undulating foothills. As students novice to pro cycle, they tone and fully engage their muscles and quickly burn through calories. And unlike some spinning classes, these high-energy workouts activate the muscles in the upper body, often leading to improved posture or spontaneous, wrestler-style t-shirt shredding sessions.
