Whether smoothing away acne or fine lines with an executive facial or crafting trial updos for brides-to-be, the staff at Indigo Salon Spa, previously called the Indigo Salon, aims to treat every client like a VIP. Scissors and clippers clean up the unruly manes of men, women, and kids, and Brazilian blowout treatments tame frizz using a formula lauded by celebrities such as Nicole Richie. Once strands are looking smooth and sleek, faces get ready for their close-up with a Red Carpet facial, and nails express their own inner Beyonc? or Lady Gaga with a Minx manicure and pedicure. Private rooms give salon superstars a quiet place to escape the spotlight, relax with a soothing Swedish or deep-tissue massage, or practice awards-show acceptance speeches.

Arizona Power Yoga's classes embrace athletic as well as introspective styles, ensuring that the studio is a welcoming environment for students of virtually any skill or fitness level. As owner Joseph Lauricella claims in a video on his website, "what we do here…is make yoga very accessible and demystify it." Regardless of the intensity, each class emphasizes a holistic approach to personal fitness and well-being by incorporating mindful breathing exercises and meticulously controlled movements. Arizona Power Yoga's temperatures fall between 85 and 90 degrees for the energetic and athletically paced Power Vinyasa sessions, which use fluid sequences of dynamic asanas to hone balance and build up stamina. In contrast, the instructors also lead gentler sessions that introduce students to fundamental poses while showing them that conscious breathing can improve mental focus and diminish the number of instances when they inexplicably turn blue.

Cardio TV—broadcast directly to the treadmills, ellipitcals, and stationary cycles—occupies eyeballs and eardrums during long treks, after which patrons are often surprised to discover they've remained in exactly the same spot while traveling 30 minutes into the future.
