They lead patrons toward this goal by targeting their core tenets of health and fitness—stability, movement, strength, and nourishment. Both of Shoreline Fitness's clubs welcome guests to their more than 15,000-square-foot training studios, which are packed with cardio machines and strength-training equipment to assist them on their journeys to overall fitness.
Throughout the week, instructors lead more than 150 fitness classes on the hardwood floors of their numerous training studios, and NASM-certified personal trainers meet with clients individually, drafting custom workout sessions to suit their specific fitness goals. As their parents burn calories, youngsters can burn excess energy in the onsite Kids Club. In the clean, secure playroom, a childcare staff leads wee ones in hands-on activities and enlightening discourse on the fleeting impermanence of reality.

The adroit art instructors at The Clayhouse unearth inner artists of all ages and experience levels with illuminating acrylic-painting curricula.

A capable creative director oversees classes and arms students with all the necessary masterpiece-melding paintbrushes and tools. As students work, background music fills the room, acting as a source of inspiration that's both gentler and safer than traditional art-enhancing techniques such as starving or experimenting with espresso-bean trail mixes.
