Each of the studio?s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters.

It’s hard to imagine a trainer more dedicated to fitness than Josh Kuklak, the owner of Survival Fitness Gym. An ACE-certified personal trainer, Josh holds state records in powerlifting on the bench-press and deadlift platforms, and has also competed in hockey, tennis, karate, and weight training. Along with Diana Fisbeck, also an ACE-certified trainer, he leads boot camp-style workouts that call upon muscle confusion—through constantly varied routines—to promote building strength and melting fat.
Their boot camps fuse cardio, resistance training, and plyometrics into workouts that change every day to prevent workout burnout. Leaving treadmills and weight machines behind, the sessions incorporate a slew of nontraditional fitness equipment. Students might flip oversize tires and hang from gymnastics rings one day, and then heave sledgehammers and box heavy bags until they cry uncle the next. Their basic-training class focuses on core work and endurance, and strength training blends elements of powerlifting, bodybuilding, and functional training to pack on muscle and annihilate fat. The fitness duo also leads personal-training sessions, motivating clients to reach their goals and harmonizing with them during workout songs.

The center offers more than 40 fitness classes, such as Pilates mat, power core, yoga, heart race cycle, and Zumba are held in the wood-floored fitness studio, while pickup games of dodgeball, racquetball, or Red Rover take place on one of the onsite courts. After a tough workout, members can relax and rest in the sauna, or enhance their sculpted physique in the tanning booth.
