The Wall's bouldering-only climbing facility beckons visitors to scale simulated peaks with angles of up to 90 degrees. Technicolor foot- and handholds pepper the walls, creating 62 different routes that challenge everyone from beginners to Harvard-educated mountain goats. To help to scale these manmade peaks, staff leads both introductory and intermediate bouldering classes. Additionally, the staff frequently changes routes to keep each climb fresh.
Guests at the Integrative Healing Spa can make a day of their favorite pampering procedures by indulging in customized treatments and lounging in a well-equipped relaxation haven. During the hot-stone pedicure, a back rub eases muscle tension, and soaking toenails play Marco Polo with departing stress. Licensed technicians administer an exfoliating scrub to jettison calluses, then follow that with a hot-stone massage for weary arches. Nail nurses apply a final coat of lotion and polish or buff nails to make them bright enough to signal aircraft to pick up some milk on their way back to the hangar.
Rather than focus on creating competition, the instructors at Iannuzzo's Karate & Kickboxing’s 8,000-square-foot facility take a more family-friendly route, eschewing enmity and keeping a positive frame of mind. This approach helps them train students as young as 4 years old in the art of karate. These all-ages classes focus on flexibility, coordination, and basic self-defense skills. Instructors also help adults obliterate calories and take out aggression against the punching bag that once spurned them in kickboxing classes set to up-tempo music. Instead of sparring, individuals undergo an ever-changing series of workouts with heavy bags, medicine balls, weights, and plyometrics. And the staff shows its theatrical side during children's birthday parties—giving martial-arts demonstrations, leading games, and slicing cakes using an authentic samurai sword.

They opened Sister Fitness to share their joyful forms of exercise with friends, family, and clients.
