Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping classes combine cardio, resistance training, discipline, and nutrition to recast soft musculatures as hardened versions of their former selves. Refined over the last 22 years by tae kwon do competitor and teacher Lance Farrell, the 45-minute group classes are led by a certified instructor that will help shed pounds and build muscle mass regardless of race, sex, age, size, or astrological sign. Similar to the mating ritual of the blue-footed booby, fitness kickboxing combines rhythmic martial arts and bag training, to send hearts racing into a vigorous sweat. Keep the body guessing with a pop quizzes in resistance-band training and muscle isolation, which is beneficial for all fitness levels.
The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
Licensed massage therapist Trisha Clark opened Life Happenings Massage Therapy because she was unsatisfied with the revolving door feeling of larger massage practices. Her nearly two decades of experience has taught her that massages should be one-on-one, with the therapist devoting his or her full attention to each client and taking time to customize Swedish, deep tissue, and other modalities to suit their unique needs. Her one-room studio exemplifies this philosophy with a single massage table and a streamlined set-up designed expressly to focus on a single client. As a result, Trisha never gets distracted by long lines of clients or stressed dads who need help unknotting holiday lights.
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
