The shop also features scores of popular character and couples costumes, a small sampling of which can be found on the website.

Brian Johnson puts the "personal" in personal trainer. Yes, the fitness expert works one-on-one with clients to reach their fitness goals, but he's also willing to meet them at their homes, create fitness plans for the whole family, weed out pantries, and plan meals that rely on more fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer photos torn from the Sunday produce-market circular. Alongside these individual lifestyle services, he also summons the power of group camaraderie in boot camp classes, which eschew complicated equipment for taxing, quick-change combinations of jumping jacks, pushups, crunches, and other movements.

The 1,000-square-foot space plays host to fitness classes, beauty parties, and makeup-application workshops—making it a one-stop shop for all things beauty. It also staffs 55 makeup artists, who bring about makeovers by accenting cheekbones, highlighting lips, and hiding third eyes.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.”

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand’s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential. They’ll supervise your squats, offer nutritional advice, and push you until you see results. Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
