The Delta can trace its origins back to 1995 when a group of certified trainers and fitness specialists began coaching their innovative program called Boot. A comprehensive fusion of strength, cardio, and nutrition training, the 6- to 10-week program is designed to help patrons build both physically fit bodies and healthy lifestyles. In 1998, the trainers opened The Delta fitness club, where they continue to host the Boot training program alongside a variety of group fitness classes and personal-training sessions. The elegant and intimate club offers cardio and strength-training equipment, as well as a range of amenities that include steam rooms and a supervised childcare area. At the front desk, accommodating staff members await to explain equipment operation, register students for classes, and politely let guests win thumb-wrestling matches.

Though Trinity Natural Healing offers many traditional massage services, the holistic healing center is worlds away from a typical spa. Run by founder Katrina Tsacrios, the center blends Eastern and Western techniques to treat pain and fatigue as well as any underlying causes such as energy blockages, chronic inflammation, or a habit of sleepjogging. Katrina, who earned her massage-therapy license in 2005, prefers to take a holistic rather than clinical approach to healing physical and spiritual ailments. Her techniques blend traditional massage with therapies designed to balance energy, including reiki, polarity therapy, and acupressure.
