The inspiring trainers with MetaBody lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Fun sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment ideal for both beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Since the pass sets a five-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimen by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Situated in the shopping district on Robert Street in West St. Paul, Twin Cities Magic & Costume stocks a collection of tricks, makeup, and costumes that have enlivened parties, magic acts, and movies for the past 27 years. Knowledgeable professionals and industry insiders guide visitors through the forest of lifelike costumes and awe-inspiring light and fire effects, helping to create eerie costumes for Halloween parties or convincing getups for period plays and films. DVDs and instructional videos teach budding illusionists how to impress crowds with linking ring and coin tricks, and fog machines and strobe lights add a touch of Vegas glamour to magicians' sets. Twin Cities Magic & Costume puts its expertise to the test as the headquarters of the Zombie Pub Crawl, a festival of gore and horror brought to life with the selection of professional-grade makeup and more than 15,000 wigs.
Threads & Inks helps schools, businesses, sports teams, and individuals create their own custom uniforms, sweatshirts, and hats——both casual clothing and workwear. Choose the garment you want customized—whether it’s a screen-printed sweatshirts, embroidered knit caps, or anything—and the team can emblazon it with the logo of a nearby school, company, or loved one's initials. The technicians process nearly every order in-house and produce it locally. One of their most popular items: custom-made letter jackets, which they distribute to a wide range of local schools and academies, decorated with chenille patches so a high-school student can show off their lettering in football or keep count of defeated challengers in spelling bees.
ChristmasLtd brings cheer to homes with thousands of holiday decor items to deck the halls. Wreaths and garlands add a touch of green to banisters and doors, and Christmas lights twinkle through the night. The selection of Christmas trees includes artificial plants in a variety of shapes and sizes. Customers can choose a 10-foot realistic fraser fir or a 4-foot frosted and pre-lit tree, and then adorn it with a selection of ornaments including musical instruments and sparkling snowflakes.

Just beyond the milky-blue and raspberry hues of its flowerbox-adorned storefront, Sewtropolis nurtures constant creativity with sewing workshops and do-it-yourself sewing stations. A self-taught sewist, owner Nikol Gianopoulos often teaches stitching techniques and threading essentials while her students assemble their own skirts, blouses, and quilts. Instructors Laura, Raina, and Annie also share their personal styles with children and adults while transforming elaborate fabrics and yarns into functional artwork. For personal projects, the shop carries sewing and quilting patterns from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Colette Patterns, and Tula Pink. A series of sewing machines, sergers, and cutting spaces are available for rent by the hour, and stacks of colorful bolts inspire creativity along with the shop dog Skilos, whose trusting gaze often convinces sewists to craft elaborate doggie mansions.
