The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

No two people are alike, so at Eclipse Studios, neither are two photo sessions. Senior portraits, for example, reflect the interests that make every teenager unique, whether they're nature lovers, sports fans, drama fanatics, or anything in between.

During boudoir sessions, they let women don their most elegant, but rarely flaunted ensembles and showcase their sensual sides amid flattering lighting and a comfortable environment. And family portraits celebrate the powerful connections between kin, whether in the formal setting of the studio or the candid atmosphere of a backyard get-together.
