Onsite chefs implement the nutritional and bio-energetic value of pure ingredients into their culinary and food-fight skills, delivering prepared wellness meals to customers' homes throughout the week. During cooking classes, chefs trained in Ayurvedic dining help newly minted cooks prepare four-course meals with a variety of vegetarian items and raw or gluten- and dairy-free victuals.

  • Church Street Boxing Gym
    A right jab to the jaw sends a mist of perspiration across the blue boxing ring before Joe Louis's eyes. His looming visage peers down at sparring athletes from the walls covered in old flyers, magazine cutouts, and posters recalling the sport's storied history at Church Street Boxing Gym. Legends including Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis have trained here, but the staff, which boasts experience in more than 300 combined fights, guides men, women, and children of all skill levels in the combat arts. Instructors lead muay thai, jujitsu, boxing, and wrestling classes, during which they challenge students in old-school and modern workouts. On the wrestling mat, they demonstrate gripping an opponent in a headlock, and those training for boxing or muay thai skip rope and pummel heavy bags until they agree to stop throwing fights. Athletes can attend classes to prepare for serious combat competition or to get in shape with exercises designed to sculpt the whole body.

  • Manhasset Chocolate LLC
    Candy comes in every color at Chocolate Works NYC, where the rainbow of confectionery pairs naturally with the sunny dispositions of those who roam the store’s aisles. Hints of red peek out from chocolate-dipped strawberries, jordan almonds model this season’s pastels, and self-serve bins nearly burst with Jelly Belly jellybeans. Wrapped in shimmering foil or cellophane, kosher truffles and edible replicas of famous paintings momentarily distract eyes from a chocolate fountain, which bubbles into a rich brown pool framed by a marzipan “No Swimming” sign. Headlined by master chocolatier Joe Whaley and Pretzels by Jill’s Jill Frechtman, an all-star cast of instructors takes the helm during the shop’s signature candy-making classes. Among other delicious, hands-on lessons, teachers demonstrate how to swathe pretzels in Belgian chocolate at an old-fashioned enrobing machine.
