With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.

Clay-based artistes may utilize the facilities for as long as they need to decorate pieces ranging from tiles ($8–$10) and mugs ($20–$27) to serving trays ($30–$50) and famous Disney characters ($23–$36), such as Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and Annette Funicello.

As the mother of four busy kids, Darcy Meys understands how important it is to find a place where the whole family can come together for some fun, quality time. She opened Art Attack in order to provide other families with an affordable, kid-friendly space where can they meet to work on creative projects, such as painting pottery or fusing glass. Minimizing cost is the lack of studio fees—visitors simply pay for their bisque, then spend as much time as they need to paint it with a custom design, even if it means they have to come back another day to finish. And since schedules are sometimes hard to coordinate, parents can bring in their brood whenever everyone has free time, without making an appointment. But Art Attack isn't strictly for kids—BYOB ladies night out parties allow groups of adults to have the entire studio to themselves, provided they leave their imaginary friends at home.
