Vo2max CEO Matthew Dupee began his flirtation with fitness on his high-school crew team, where he first developed a deep respect for physical discipline. Since then, he’s spent years in education and healthcare vocations, earning his fitness-trainer certification and starting up Vo2max with his wife and co-president, Jessica. Matthew and Jessica now teach others to master the mysteries of gym workouts and equipment with calculated, tailor-made exercise and diet plans.

The Dupees’ striking, battleship-gray studio fuses the martial vigor of the ancient Trojans with the interior-decorating aesthetics of the ancient Spartans, fine-tuning bodies with no-frills resistance-training apparatuses, monkey bars, and punching bags. Students of any stature or ability enhance their health with intense, effective fitness exercises pulled from fight training, such as flipping a 250-pound tractor tire, swinging hammers, or high-fiving a steelworker. Trainees put their endurance and agility to the test with regular workouts, while a team of trainers puts their impressive resumés to work with hands-on instruction in nutrition, exercise, and boxing techniques.

Baker Adie Sprague, who made a splash as a participant on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, showcases her meticulous dessert designs at Treat Cupcake Bar. She crafts at least a dozen flavors every day, including seasonal goodies such as candy apple—an apple cake smothered with cinnamon frosting. Adie also whips up separate batches for gluten-free and vegan patrons, such as chocolate cake crowned with mint cookies ‘n' cream frosting.

Rather than hog all the decorating fun for itself, Treat invites guests to make their very own creations at its namesake bar. There, you’ll find four varieties of both cake and frosting, plus more than 20 other toppings, such as Pop Rocks and chocolate-covered pretzels. To refine your decorating skills, sign up for one of Treat’s holiday-themed classes and learn to make seasonal shapes such as turkeys for Thanksgiving and smashed calculators for National Do Long Division by Hand Day.

Make your mouth an offer it will find exceedingly difficult to decline with a large Godfather pizza—a doughy don loaded with sliced tomato, olive oil, grilled chicken, artichoke hearts, and enough mozzarella to fuel friends and Fredos through dull cement-shoe fittings ($16.89). Needham House of Pizza also offers toasty subs, such as meatball, pepper and egg, and veal cutlet (all $5.69 for a small), as well as spaghetti and meatballs ($7.79) and cheese ravioli ($6.29) served with garlic bread.
