More akin to a small, self-contained town than a fitness center, each of Spectrum Fitness’s seven locations kowtows to packed schedules and multitasking parents. A slew of classes arranges social body blasting—customers can tone their torsos with squats, presses, and curls in a BodyPump barbell class or sweat in spinning classes atop a stationary bike equipped with pursuit-style handlebars, adjustable resistance, and a front-mounted E.T. Members of Spectrum Fitness can swing by its Central location and trot on the treadmill until dawn. They can drop off their tykes at the childcare center and take a yoga or kickboxing class. And they can follow a swim by basking in the bronzing light of the tanning bed before sauntering up to the Pro Shop for smoothies.

The staff takes great pains to accommodate newcomers of all ages, levels, and car-stacking abilities. Personal trainers concoct customized fitness regimens during solo and group training sessions, and Silver Sneakers and water aerobics classes bring seniors into the fitness fold.

Look Studios & Gallery’s team tutors all levels of students in realistic brush strokes and drawing techniques during classes focused on accurately depicting the human form. By discouraging participants from copying each other or hiring an art student intern to paint for them, the staff nurtures creativity and allows it to bloom during intimate BYOB classes. Here, they guide students through the basics to interpret a preselected image using provided materials. In addition to teaching portrait and human figure classes, owner Juliet Lockwood holds summer retreats for artists who paint seascape-inspired pieces during a one- to two-week stay in a Gloucester cottage.

A fitness center with three experienced, certified trainers, BRfit tailors each new member's workout according to individual problems diagnosed during a functional movement screening. The screening roots out irregular movement patterns, then prescribes exercises and stretches to correct any problems caused by having a crab torso or cherub wings. Group training is divided into two phases. The first employs a brigade of exercises to roust degenerate muscles detected in the screening. The second phase is a workout that takes the body on a heart-pumping metabolic thrill ride that lasts 40 minutes and ends with the police chief giving back your badge and gun. Personal training sessions hew exercise even more closely to personal goals and movement screening results. Group sessions must be used within four weeks of your first visit; consult the schedule to find sessions that don't conflict with your visit to the offworld colonies.
