ActivEdge Fitness Club's experienced fitness gurus shepherd clients toward a tighter body with two stories worth of cardio and weight equipment, an ample number of group classes, a basketball court, and a 25-meter lap pool. Gain a better understanding of your overall well-being with a health screen, a preliminary fitness assessment that utilizes resistance and balance tests, optional body-fat measurements, and a trainer consultation to calculate an individualized plan for achieving physical goals. Then guests can put their plans into action by piloting more than 50 cardio machines in workout zones equipped with several flat-screen televisions. A variety of group classes, which include Kardio Kickboxing and the pool-based Nautical Noodles, confuse muscles much more effectively than performing a triathlon in zero gravity or telling sinews they were adopted. While adults enjoy postworkout tanning, the kids' club's mini basketball court lets active little ones exercise away pent-up energy and mimic legendary video-game character Michael Jordan.

New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.

When licensed cosmetologist Chuck Fiegen founded Capri College in 1966, he knew that the best way to prepare students for the work force was to start at the top—with the educators. By sending his instructors all around the world to learn the latest trends and techniques, he was giving his students access to information they couldn't find in any textbook. More than 45 years have passed, but Fiegen—who continues to run the beauty school with the help of his six children—remains a stickler for teaching excellence. He can occasionally be found observing teaching methods and offering his two-cents on the clinic floor.

Inside the ACCSC-accredited college, instructors with at least three years of experience bolster students’ employability with training in cosmetology, massage therapy, aesthetics, and nail technology. Students put their training into action in the student-staffed salon and spa, where they paint and snip dull strands, and soften extremities with paraffin treatments. In the spa, students dole out five types of massage modalities, from relaxing Swedish strokes to Thai massage, which addresses tension with yoga-like stretches and the pressing of eject buttons. Their panoply of facials help counteract skin woes, such as fine lines or acne, whereas microdermabrasion buffs away dead skin, sunspots, and other facial imperfections with an onslaught of sodium-bicarbonate crystals.

When Wayne and Jackie Meier opened the first Midwest Athletic Club in 1984, it was a tiny, 3,000-square-foot facility with a modest staff of one trainer. A lot has changed for the Meiers since the ‘80s; they’ve since ditched the splatter-painted stirrup pants made famous by Ronald Reagan and expanded into six spacious locations throughout the area, helming a diverse staff of personal trainers, expert fitness instructors, and swim teachers. Instructors lead cardio and strength-training classes, as well as sessions of yoga, Pilates, and tai chi. In the pristine waters of the Xtreme branch’s 75-foot pool, coaches demonstrate strokes and techniques and guide fitness-seekers through aquatic aerobics. All locations abound with professional cardio equipment—many of which boast individual TVs—and strength-training equipment from top brands such as Icarian, Universal, and Nautilus.

After workouts, guests can unwind in the wood saunas at the Xtreme and South locations. At the Xtreme location’s café, servers blend a variety of beneficial smoothies and shakes chock-full of fruits and protein.

When customers reach the third floor of the Cherry Building and walk into Send U My Love, it's not unusual for them to notice the aroma of rich, freshly brewed coffee. Owner Teresa Eadie puts on a pot on most mornings to share. Teresa's life is shaped by her desire to share. In the beginning, she started Send U My Love as a way to share her own love of handmade goodies, and her shop has grown to encompass a dazzling assortment of journals, charming albums, greeting cards, and all the supplies her customers would ever need to make them. Rows of rubber stamps and scrapbooking paper inspire crafters to embark on new projects, and the schedule of classes offered at the shop helps them realize their visions. Teresa also puts together thoughtful kids’ birthday-party packages to take the stress, worry, and piñata-herding out of planning. :m]]
