The axe experts at Music Masters supervise over an ear-soothing array of top-notch music lessons, melodious instruments, and repair services. Through four 30-minute lessons, shredders of all skill sets perfect their plucks in any style of their choice, practicing amidst air-conditioned rehearsal rooms that ensure face-melting guitar solos don't come to horrifying fruition. Callous-culling homework lessons accompany each lesson, while an annual recital at the Douglass Theatre gives students the chance to unleash their newfound skills with the aid of a professional backing band. Ambitious strummers who sign up for an additional three sets of four lessons (not included with today's Groupon) receive a $100 credit toward any 6-string guitar, 12-string guitar, or Silly String guitar in the store.
Jordana Adler, a licensed massage therapist certified by the Pilates Method Alliance, fosters wellness as much as fitness at her boutique Discipline Pilates studio. Drawing on her thorough knowledge of myoskeletal alignment and other facets of health, she can target chronic pains in private sessions or work with larger assemblies.
Her studio’s group classes strengthen participants with diverse Pilates modalities, from standing routines that promote alignment to jump intervals, which employ the reformer machine for a joint-friendly cardio workout. Postworkout, patrons can detangle muscles under the percussive Thumper massage device, which combines the precision of a machine with the comfort of a machine that has learned to bake cookies.
The fitness experts at Body Evolution snap muscles into shape during hour-long boot camp sessions and workouts held as early as 5 a.m. In boot camp and CrossFit sessions, trainers work to fight fat and sculpt muscles by leading cardio and weight intervals beneficial to both men's and women's physiques.
