Open seven days a week, the Springfield JCC Health and Fitness Center revs up bodies with a plethora of popular classes on land and in its Olympic-sized pool. Upgrade your physique with a BodyPump class, which teaches the original barbell-based full-body weightlifting regimen created by the Olympian Les Mills. Or sway your way toward lean muscle tone with a Zumba class, which fuses Latin and international rhythms to create a fat-exhausting South American fitness-and-dance party. The aquatically inclined may perform water aerobics in the pool to receive the cardiovascular benefits of aerobic exercise without stressing tender joints. Opt for enrollment in the masters swim program, and gain access to classes for beginners, advanced swimmers, aspiring triathletes, and those who are tired of swimming in seas of ambiguity.
Belmont Laundry's garment gurus refresh fabrics and gently banish rogue stains with earth-friendly products. Skilled fabric attendants free shirts (up to $2.55/shirt), pants ($7.95), and sweaters ($7.95) of built-up dust pockets and abandoned condiments. As a courtesy, clothing tenders replace buttons lost through Oxford skirmishes and hang or fold shirts depending on their natural bedroom habitats. Free delivery service returns homesick clothes to the office or home twice a week.

A certified health coach, raw-food chef, and Pilates instructor, Becca Sutter struggled with body-image issues and negative self-talk at an early age. Dance had always been her voice, but one day that voice fell silent. Becca gained weight and began to feel lost, adrift, and unfulfilled. Then she took her first yoga class. This was the spark that would propel her transformation, and she began to feel inspired, rejuvenated, and hopeful once more.
A true model of enlightenment, Becca aims to share her journey with each client that crosses her path. At her studio, she teaches Pilates, barre sculpt, and yoga classes to help students feel better about themselves and shed weight like a cat sheds its claws each summer. She provides diet coaching to help clients control eating cravings and delves even further into healthy eating by educating clients about the benefits of raw-food diets.
Becca still dances—in fact, she’s on the ballet faculty at the Artistic Dance Conservatory—only now, she has discovered even more avenues to help her feel emotionally free and connected to joy.
