Hot Body Fitness harnesses the power of the stationary velocipede to transform excess weight into sweat and burn off stress in big cool-looking fireballs. During the 45-minute spin classes, students will sink their ears into mellifluous, adrenaline-stoking tunes while pedal-pounding away on state-of-the-art Spinner NXT bikes. Hot Body's certified instructors will challenge complacent legs and cardiovascular systems with a gamut of riding exercises, including climbs, sprints, jumps, and cruises. Membership also includes discounts on Hot Body Fitness’s other classes, such as yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and differential calculus.
Characterized by broad-leafed fauna, private massage rooms with plush beds, and soothing white-and-lavender walls, Haven Day Spa offers an island-style respite from the helter-skelter outside world. The spa specializes in natural facials and massage. In keeping with the island theme, therapists knead away tension using a Polynesian style of massage called lomi lomi. The centuries-old modality, imported from Hawaii, gets blood circulating, spiriting oxygen to far-flung extremities with the help of gliding strokes. Focusing their attention on faces, aestheticians perform a handful of facials and body treatments. For the natural facial and deep-pore facial, they start with an in-depth skin analysis, sleuthing out the causes of blotched complexions and other complexion-based maladies before customizing a regimen of exfoliation and cleansing.
For longtime dancers Rachel Jackson and Aderemi Rucker, the creation of Destined 2 Dance Studio & Performing Arts took a leap of faith. They had performed together as a gospel-infused praise-dance duo for several years, and had been asked many times about offering classes. In 2003, they decided to give it a try, and since then, they've helped both adults and children express themselves through dance. Classes include ballet, jazz, modern, hip-hop, and praise styles, and the studio also has its own dance company.
As they enter the training at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Nu Motion Massage specializes in "high-performance healing"––bodywork geared toward athletes and other active individuals. By blending traditional exercise with deep-tissue massage or myofascial therapy, the facility's licensed massage therapists can relieve chronic pain while also improving flexibility and stamina. Though this is the foundation of Nu Motion's menu, clients may also request less performance-geared techniques, such as Swedish or shiatsu, to promote full-body relaxation.
