Aspen Athletic Club furnishes workers out with weight and resistance machines for bulking up and a spin room for burning calories and raising heart rates. Group classes at the Aksarben and Shadow Lake locations let pupils choose from five different exercise types, from choreographed cardio sessions to yoga classes that challenge both the body and the mind. The Turbo Kick class sets kickboxing techniques to up-tempo music, and students of The Tone Zone session build muscle using dumbbells, stability balls, and disobedient wolfhounds tied to their arms. Class schedules run from morning to night, Monday–Saturday, allowing students to fit workouts into busy schedules. During the 50-minute personal-training session, members meet with trainers in order to fashion fitness plans customized to meet individual goals and the state's stringent requirements for collecting lotto winnings. After working out, exercisers retire to stress-melting steam baths before changing in pristine locker rooms.

In 1998, Don and Linda Eckles founded a simple drive-thru coffee shop. They named it Scooter's Coffeehouse in honor of their daughter, who had gained quite a reputation for speed on the baseball diamond, and their mission became to help their customers “scoot in and scoot out” as quickly as possible.
Today, the Scooters franchise spans nine states and more than 115 locations, some of which cater to people in vehicles and on cows with their drive-thru-only service. At each coffeehouse, friendly baristas brew steaming hot mugs of the house blend, a rich medium-roast blend of Indonesian and South American beans. They also craft hot and cold lattes, fruit smoothies, and sweet tea lattes, and dole out gourmet cookies, scones, and cinnamon rolls. To further satisfy sweet teeth, Scooter’s creamy mounds of self-serve frozen yogurt await more than 40 candies and fruits.

The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
