The faculty of local artists at Wine and Design Mesa helps students create works of art in a social, supportive setting with lessons designed for people with no artistic experience. After uncorking bottles of wine and kegs of paint, budding artists spend two hours imitating pros stroke for stroke as they transform canvases into paintings of colorful landscapes and vibrant still lifes. Guests of any experience level are welcome and Wine and Design Mesa provides all necessary materials, including paint, brushes, and corkscrews. While the studio is currently under construction, classes are held at venues around town, including Old Chicago in Superstition Springs, Mesa's Piggly BBQ and Grill, Mesa Sports Grill, and Bellagio Italian Cuisine
With forms that focus on lengthening and balancing the body, Hot Lotus Yoga's signature practice strengthens the whole body and increases flexibility. Heated rooms help patrons sweat out impurities and amp up metabolism. Vinyasa flow classes change daily and usher students through more traditional sequences of yogic poses and soul smiles.
Although injuries sidelined him after earning a gold medal at the Junior Olympics, trainer Steve Fischkin renewed his passion for fitness by crafting a conditioning program that has helped him and his clients rediscover their healthiest selves. Today he leads a team of Impact Boot Camp trainers who tone and tighten students into shape. During boot-camp classes, exercisers spend an hour nickel-and-diming brows for every last sweat bead with a high-energy regimen that includes resistance training, obstacle courses, and wind sprints. Much like a game of boardroom musical chairs, Steve promotes a fun yet work-oriented exercise environment.
Impact also personalizes a diet plan for each patron. At an initial fitness consultation, the trainer and client set future goals, identify foods the client should be eating, work together to create a meal plan, and check sneaker pockets to make they aren’t hiding any unhealthy snacks.
While most kids his age were building dexterity in the thumbs they used to play arcade machines, future Impact founder Steve Fischkin was building his muscles. At the age of 16, he was a national title-holding body builder. But shortly thereafter, an injury led to a loss of motivation, and Steve gained more than 100 pounds. On the long road back to health and fitness, he had an epiphany: The real goal should be staying fit for life, not relying on fad workouts and diets to lose weight quickly.
The program he developed balances sweat and dedication with lighthearted activities. Steve believes that if people don’t find a way to enjoy working out, they’re going to stop doing it. A typical boot-camp-style workout at his studio balances intense kettlebell swings and core work with agility training that involves foam projectiles from a Nerf gun. In addition to group training, Impact members enjoy private coaching sessions, goal-setting strategies, personalized nutritional guidance, and a personalized message sent back in time from a future president.
