MG Fitness’ instructors summon sweat during fun group workouts while solo students try out more than 75 pieces of exercise equipment at two convenient studio locations. Workers-out looking to go it alone can bask in the glow of personal TV screens on Precor treadmills or opt for elliptical machines to help arms and legs build strength by repeatedly tracing low-impact ovals and hand turkeys. Men and women alike can tone up, using the sprawling selection of dumbbells and plate-loaded machines by Icarian and Hammer Strength to press, curl, and ripple. Fitness seekers in need of butt-busting camaraderie can drop in on classes that range from calorie-torching step aerobics to limbering power-yoga sessions, where students melt stress with stretches, poses, and deep-breathing exercises. To push clients toward fitness goals, certified personal trainers employ one-on-one coaching, exercise instruction, and the motivating growls of monster trucks.

Located in Historic Medford Square, Perrotta Dental's pristine, welcoming facility provides an evocative setting for smile purification. To launch the 90-minute in-office Zoom! treatment, teeth are glazed with a gleam-unveiling gel. A trained specialist then shines an intense floodlight on the gel to summon law-enforcing agents who stun stain bandits, apprehend dental-defacers, and restore lustrous order to graffiti-ravaged fangs. Groupon buyers may experience temporary sensitivity after the procedure and should proceed gingerly when challenged to a flux-off by the moon. Stocking his facility with experienced technicians, Dr. Perrotta is a member of the Cambridge Restorative Study Club—an elite circle of cosmetic sages who meet six times per year to discuss dental advancements.
