Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
Current owner Flora Suissa and the founders of Suissa Salon trained in Paris and Montreal before opening their first salon in 1970 in the US. They took what they learned in the City of Light and the Province of Poutine, and created their own brand of salons. It was only a matter of time before their style shops grew into myriad locations.
features a roster of talented stylists, aestheticians, and nail artists. They've also got an ace up their sleeve: Eve Diaz, who developed her own line of beauty products?LaPenotiere?which is the primary product line featured here. Armed with talent and products, stylists deliver haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments that discipline frizzy and static-addicted hair. They also offer weft tape extensions and hijab services, offered in private suites. Suissa's stylists pride themselves on their versatility, which means they're familiar with a large and diverse client base and are adept at working with clients of all ethnicities and a wide range of hair types.
The signature bathhouse treatments at Hammam Luna adhere to centuries-old traditions that still hold strong in places such as Morocco, Turkey, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates. After entering a private room, clients are encouraged to lie down atop a bench of heated marble as steam gently
opens pores and flickering candles light the space's stone walls. Staff members then cleanse clients from head to toe with a natural soap made from olives before softly scrubbing away dead skin cells with the help of a kessa?a traditional exfoliating glove. A quick rinse cleanses the skin and an application of Moroccan rhassoul clay helps nourish and soften the epidermal layers and can be formed into an attractive mug.
In addition to that signature hammam experience,
the Mediterranean bath also offers a variety of
spa services that share the same dedication to total-body indulgence. The team is busy throughout the day performing massages, reflexology treatments, and acupressure sessions, as well as exfoliating with natural scrubs made from ginger and sugar or Dead Sea salts.
A trip to Hot Yoga Spa Nutrition & Wellness Center may not be the equivalent of a Hawaiian vacation,
but it's not so far off either. Patrons who close their eyes might imagine themselves in a tropical environment as they sweat their way through hot yoga, hot barre, hot Pilates, Zumba, and other fitness classes held in two heated studios. Or, as they relax in a far-infrared sauna that raises body temperatures to flush out toxins. But the wellness center has more in common with an island retreat than just heat and roaming ukelele players?it aims to be a place where customers can come to totally unwind and refresh both body and mind. To that end, it also welcomes clients to relax at an organic tea and oxygen bar, or head to the attached spa to enjoy a full slate of beauty and wellness services.
Synergy Health and Wellness specializes in thousand-year-old techniques for wellness, such as acupressure and reflexology. At this soothing day spa, experienced therapists work to relax tight and aching muscles in the body, face, and feet, offering treatments that run from quick half-body 10-minute acupressure sessions to luxurious 90-minute full-body massage sessions.

Even the waiting room at iHeart Massage is designed to help comfort patrons, with a supple leather sofa to sink into. The lighting throughout is kept dim and warm, from the hallways into the treatment rooms, creating a soothing atmosphere without hiring James Earl Jones to hum over an intercom. Inside the treatment rooms, candles enhance the relaxing aesthetic along with accents such as min-waterfalls and statues of Buddha. These chambers are where the licensed therapists knead away stress with Swedish or deep-tissue massage modalities and enhancements such as aromatherapy or hot stones.
